Reply to an ‘Atheist’

24 May

Hi,

  My post of the day is actually a reply to one of the comments here in our blog, Do you say ‘NO GOD’?

As it is quite long, I posted it separate.

Submitted on 2011/05/23 at 10:09 pm

“This is going to be a quick post. All the issues you have raised above have already been debunked by many others many times, so I will just be brief. You can get more information by typing in youtube and watching talks by Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens.”

        Thank you for your quick post. If your brief answer is one of the debunks..i will say ‘IT REALLY DIDNT WORK’. Go ahead and read 🙂

“Question 1:
The universe began with the big bang. No one knows, and when I say ‘no one’, I mean NO ONE, knows what happened at and just before the moment of the big bang, but we have a good idea what happened straight after the big bang.”

   No we don’t have! We don’t know exactly which year big bang took place, we don’t know exactly how old is this earth…we don’t know how long this will last. WE DON’T KNOW!
      All we do it assumptions and assumptions have no boundaries.

” Scientists are still working on finding answers, that’s why we have the Large Hydro Collider. Experiments like these will help us understand the Universe as it was straight after the big bang.”

      Yep..thats what i am saying..we will keep on working..and that never ends.. some scientist will say something..and you believe in that. Few years later, another one will pop up and say, “That was wrong!”. Experiments will give a result..bt again you have to ‘just believe’ that result is right 🙂

“I do not know if we’ll ever find out what created the big bang, but like professor Atkins said, to say God did it when we get something we don’t understand, is intellectually laziness.”

      Do you say there is an effect without a cause?
OK this universe was formed from big bang..some thing should have caused that big bang right? Even if you say…’x’ reaction caused big bang.. some thing should have caused that ‘x’ reaction right?
        And this will never end until you admit that THERE IS GOD..What we find is the steps which God made to create this universe. There is definitely a ‘Causer’ behind all these reactions.

 All these amazing things..just came up like a ‘boom’ without any driving force behind it? Even a needle has a maker..what about this universe?
I say ‘denying Him’ is intellectual laziness..not affirming Him.. get a big picture.

          Let’s learn our universe and this will definitely affirm the existence of God, this will never deny Him. You see all those unbelievable reactions and yet you say they came up all by its own? This is intellectual laziness man.

Our intellect is limited, you cannot understand everything…each forward steps you take..u will know there are more and it’s nothing wrong to say, “God did it” because you and I know, “THERE IS GOD”…even if you deny Him outwardly.

“Question 2:
We are the product of a billion years of evolution. It is evident in the fossil records and in our genes. The theory of evolution is a FACT, supported by overwhelming evidence. In fact, we rely on theory of evolution to develop vaccines for diseases and many other scientific applications. Monkey and us share a common ancestor. YouTube “Carl Sagan Evolution”. Also read up on Richard Dawkins book “The Greatest Show on Earth” which explains the evidence for evolution.”

Again monkeys!
Some said monkey is my mother and you say monkey is my brother?

        You can believe monkey is your brother..but you can’t believe you are a separate creation with intellect and free will? weird.
 You have the greatest history but not that animal!

All celebrated Darwin’s theory..and now they say, “it was without any proof”. Again you celebrate some other theory, wait until few years to get the opposite result.
We are human beings, we always err and there is no 100% truth in any so-called theories.

“Question 3:
God exists in the supernatural realm. Most athiests, including myself, don’t believe in the supernatural. So the ‘time is god’ logic is completely flawed.”

         Submission… human beings always submit to something, this is unevitable. We submit to the One who created us provides for us all day and those who deny Him submit to primitive things..it may be time, their own desires, science..anything..! And they put their trust in it.. I say that is their God.

Believing in God is not just enough, submitting to Him is more important.

We put our trust in God and you put your trust in Science.
Remember! Science never denies the existence of God rather it affirms Him..otherwise you won’t be seeing a number of scientists embracing Islam. As you are an user of youtube, I don’t think I should list their names 🙂

“Here you are describing Pascal’s Wager, which states that you should just believe in a god, because if god doesn’t exist, then you’ve lost nothing, but if god exists then you have everything to lose. This, in my opinion, is a horrible and vile reason to believe in anything as it plays on humans fear. Using fear to convince of something as being true.”

     Put it in this way, billions and billions of people believed in God and only a few lakhs, or crores or even say a million denied Him.. who is likely to be correct?

Those billions and billions or a few nuts? Give a second thought.. there is God.

“First, there have been 10,000+ gods in the history of men.”

      If you really ‘studied’ Islaam, you should have known that there is only one God all time. And there was only one God in the beginning of our history (if you believe Adam is the first man, he didn’t worship 10,000+ Gods did he?). There were 10 generations between Adam and Noah where people worshipped the one and only God.

And again, if you have ‘studied’ Islaam, you would have known.. polytheism began during Prophet Noah’s (alaihi salaam) time.
Wadd, Suwaa’, Yaghooth, Ya’ooQ and Nasr these were the five righteous people of Noah’s time. After their death people kept a stone in their meeting place for remembrance. None of that generation worshiped them..but the future generation was deceived by Shaitaan and they started worshiping it.
      This is the beginning of idolatry and polytheism.

This is an age of Science and you need proofs for everything.. who knows people may even ask proof for their father 😦 but still at the end of the day ‘its belief’. You are ‘just believing’ your proofs are right (until someone comes and say it is wrong.. and then u go in a confused state) and ‘I believe’ my scripture is right and no one can confuse me because it is not based on assumption!

My Scripture itself a miracle.. I am personally moved by it’s literature.  Lemme give u an example..
             There are 10 forms of verb (may be there r many but I dont know). For example, if you say ‘he does’ in English, you can say the same thing in 10 different ways in Arabic and each has a different impact and a specific meaning.
     When you take a verse and see a verb there…you will say ‘wowwww’ coz.. it will be in the most suitable form.. and it will have ‘the most powerfull meaning’.
You could have used any of the 10 forms ..bt still it will be in the most correct form..and u cannot choose a better option than that.

If you wanna study Arabic go to Qur’an..and it has merely all rules and perfect lyrics..and subhaanallaah… NO MAN CAN BRING SUCHA BOOK!

All English translations we have is ‘no justice’ you know.. you just translate it generally..bt the arabic words are more specific and have more accurate meanings.
And I can never say ‘an illiterate’ man said all these things. EVEN A LANGUAGE SCHOLAR CAN NEVER BRING SUCHA BOOK!

“You are pretty screwed if you die, get to the gates of heaven, and it turns out Brahman is at the gates and you’ve been worhshipping the wrong god all along.”

  Hehehe..you made me laugh.. if you see what the vedas say..it says the same thing..worship the one and only God who has no beginning, no end, no parents, no children, no idols etc.. and even it talks about the kalki avatar.

     You can call your God as Brahman..we Muslims have no trouble with it but worship Him in the way He said..in the way His Last Prophet did..thats what really matters!

You are worshipping the idols not the Brahman, worship the Brahman guys!

“Also, I’m pretty sure god will be able to see through you if you are just “acting” like you believe in him.”

     lol I’m pretty sure, you believe in the existence of God. Otherwise you wouldn’t have made such statements. So it’s actually: God will be able to see through if u ‘act’ like denying God. Because belief in God is ingrained in our soul. From the primitive tribes to famous scientists all believed in GOD!

We believe in God but we don’t want to obey Him, so we deny Him. Thats the truth actually.

“No rational person can believe in something that is not reasonable to believe in; flying winged horses, virgins giving birth, men flying off into the sky. No sane person of reason can believe in such things.”

   But a sane person believes in the things which he sees in front of his eyes right? The things around you itself proves the existence of God. Nothing can be there without a Creator.

“We are a very curious and inquisitive species. We are always looking for answers and explainations. When mankind didn’t have answers to the germ theory, or the planets and the stars, and why it rained, and why the Sun was bright and yellow and went from one side of the earth to the other side, we inserted God into the equation. God was the default “I don’t know, but God did it” explaination to everything we didn’t understand. Before germ theory, people thought god took revenge and killed people.”

  Again, even if I get those answers it only affirms my faith in God and not the other way round. How amazing these planets and stars are..then how amazing will be the One who created it?

           If you deny God you deny the whole purpose of life you know?
What’s your purpose of life actually? To eat, to sleep, to find out why it is raining, why sun is yellow?

You should do these researches to know the higher purpose of your life. And denying it is actually ‘intellectual laziness’.
Even if u know all about sun..it is going to die oneday..it is going to be nothing one day… why do you care about it so much?  Care about your soul because your soul is gonna be recreated and gonna be judged. The sun is not gonna be judged it’s YOU!

If you say there is no judgement at all, then this clashes with every aspect of life.

Why do I need to be good if there gonna be no judgement? I shall go and steal.
     Why is someone created blind and dumb and others so intelligent?
Why is someone poor and others rich?

       You will not get the answers for these qs if you deny judgement.

You talked about ‘moral’ you know what.. no one will be morally good if they don’t have a little fear that, if they do bad, they are gonna be punished. Even if they escape in this world they will taste it in the Hereafter.And the reality is THERE IS A JUDGEMENT DAY!
And to prepare for that is the highest purpose of life, NOT TO UNDERSTAND WHY EARTH IS REVOLVING!

These are all primitive things, you go besides these things and they are all going to be destroyed one day. All your efforts to understand them is null and void.
            If understanding the ‘Creations’ help you remember your ‘Creator’ go ahead, otherwise you will get to know what you were doing all these days in a day WHERE NO SOUL CAN HELP OTHER 🙂

“At the very start, the most prominant thing in the sky was the Sun, thus the birth of the “Sun God”, which explained to the primitive minds of humans why the sun went down and came back up again; God went away at night, and arose again during the day.”

    Sun was not the first worshiped thing, it was the ‘One and Only real true God’. Who did Adam worship? sun or Allah?

You reminded me Prophet Abraham’s (alaihi salaam) story.. He knew that stones can never be his God and saw the sun to be most powerful. But when there was no sun in night, he said, “this can’t be my God!”

“When he saw the rising sun, he said, “This is my Lord for it is greater (than the others).” But when this too faded away, (Abraham) said, “My people, I disavow whatever you consider equal to God.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Cattles’ 6:78]

Lets not worship the creation of Allah, lets worship Him alone.

“And from among His Signs are the night and the day, and the sun and the moon. Prostrate not to the sun nor to the moon, but prostrate to Allah Who created them, if you (really) worship Him.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘Explained in detail’ 41:37]

” That say primitive way of understanding exists today, when even in the face of so much scientific reasoning and explaination, and so much evidence, people still try to explain the unknown by saying “God did it”.”

        I think I answered this, even if I get to know the unknown I will still say, “God did it” because He did it right!
Whatever we find is the steps of how God did it.. step 1 this step 2 this ..so on..but at the end ‘God did it’.

As I said..we can never fully understand the way how God did everything. We take one step forward and will find there are many more to go.. we keep on running behind it and all of sudden everything will be destroyed including you and me!

And then we will be raised up and questioned! No injustice will be done to any soul 🙂

And then we may think..I should have planned how to spend my time, subhaanallaah.

“And they will say, “If only we had been listening or reasoning, we would not be among the companions of the Blazing Fire.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Dominion’ 67:10]

Islaam doesn’t say you should believe blindly. Listen and reason.. reasoning will never deny the presence of God, it only affirms it!

“And lastly, you don’t need to scare people into believing in a god, it’s a poor reason and not evidence that god exists.”

          What to do..sometimes ‘truth is a bit scary’. We know it’s gonna happen, instead of denying it ‘No NO NOO’ and getting destroyed when it actually happens..lets prepare ourselves and face the terror.. because IT IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

“I will leave with this quote from Epicurus, the greek philosopher from ~300BC:

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent.
Is he able, but not willing?
Then he is malevolent.
Is he both able and willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing?
Then why call him God?””

    This poem is based on God Vs Evil.. mostly all other religions say this.. they bring an opponent to God, God Vs Devil.

But Islaam is the ONLY religion which says, there is no opponent to God. Nothing can dare to oppose Him.

it is not God Vs Shaitaan, Shaitaan will never ever think to go 101 with God..
it’s Man Vs Shaitan..Shaitaan is not God’s enemy, he is our enemy.

“Indeed, Satan is an enemy to you; so take him as an enemy. He only invites his party to be among the companions of the Blazing Fire.” [AlQur’aan Chapter ‘The Originator’ 35:6]

See God says Shaitaan is our enemy…he is not God’s enemy. he was a pious slave of Allah and now he is going to hell because of ‘us’ (not really us but because of his pride) bt he thinks he goes to hell because of us and he wants to take us with him. What an evil enemy!

      God does nothing purely evil, we have good in everything. Shaitan decieved Adam and as a result Adam learnt the ‘greatest form of worship’ ‘REPENTANCE’.
Decieving is bad but repentace is the best.

           So in and of itself this poem is a crap, diseased by unislamic faith. 🙂

Also read, ‘Why should I believe in God?’

Hope I answered you to my best!

God or Gods?

4 Apr

 

 

God or Gods?

          We came to know that there is a God and everything is not God. Now the question comes, “How many Gods are there?”

 

“One, two, three? Hundred? Thousand? 33 million thousand?”

 

Well… majority of mankind believe in ONE GOD. As I have said, a God should not be deprived of anything. He should have all qualities.

 When a God has all qualities, there is no need for another God. Isn’t it?

 

90% Religions say there is only ONE GOD.

 Many people believe in ONE GOD. But they worship MANY GODS!!

 

For example, if we look at Hinduism (the most apparent multi God religion!)

 

1.Chandogya Upanishad Chapter 6 Section 2 verse 1

“Ekam Evadvitiyam”

“He is one only without a second.”

(The Principal Upanishad by S. Radhakrishnan pg. 447 & 448)

(Sacred Books of the East Volume 1, the Upanishads Part I Page 93)

 

2. Shwetashvatara Upanishad Chapter 6 verse 9

 “Nacasya kascij janita na cadhipah”

“Of Him there are neither parents nor Lord.”

(The Principal Upanishad by S. Radhakrishnan pg. 745)

(and in Sacred books of the East volume 15, the Upanishads Part II Page 263)

 

3. Bhagwad Geeta 10:3

“He, who knows Me as the unborn, as the beginning-less, as the Supreme Lord of all the worlds…”

 

4. BRAHMA SUTRA OF HINDU VEDANTA

‘Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan”

“There is only one God, not the second, not at all, not at all, not in the least bit”.

 

There are many verses in the Hinduism Scriptures saying that there is ONLY ONE GOD. And we should worship Him alone.

Unfortunately, when we ask a common Hindu today, He will say there are many Gods, may be 3 or 100 or 1000 or 33000000. (??!!)

        My Hindu Readers! Read your Scriptures carefully… you will find that there is ONLY ONE GOD.

 

Christianity & Judiasm:

         The Bible does not support the Christian belief in trinity at all.

One of the scribes once asked Jesus (pbuh) as to which was the first commandment of all, to which Jesus (pbuh) merely repeated what Moses (pbuh) had said earlier:

“Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adonai Ikhad.”

This is a Hebrew quotation, which means:

“Hear, O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord.”
[The Bible (King James Version), Mark 12:29]

It is striking that the basic teachings of the Church such as Trinity and vicarious atonement find no mention in the Bible.

 

Concept of God in Testement:

           The following verse from the book of Deuteronomy contains an exhortation from Moses (pbuh):

“Shama Israelu Adonai Ila Hayno Adna Ikhad”.

It is a Hebrew quotation which means:

“Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God is one Lord”
[The Bible, Deuteronomy 6:4]

 

Unity of God in Book of Isaiah:

       The following verses are from the Book of Isaiah:
        
(i) “I, even I, am the Lord; and beside me there is no saviour.”
[The Bible, Isaiah 43:11]
        
(ii) “I am Lord, and there is none else, there is no God besides me.”
[The Bible, Isaiah 45:5]
        
(iii) “I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me.”
[The Bible, Isaiah 46:9]

            But unfortunately uuuunfortunately, today many Christians are worshipping more than ONE GOD. Jesus (Peace be upon Him), Mary (May Allah be pleased with her) and many many so-called Saints.

My Christian and Jewish Readers!

Belief in one God is not just enough for us! We should worship Him alone..!! He deserves our worship, ONLY He deserves our worship!!

 

Buddishm:

         Buddha was silent about the existence or non-existence of God. It may be that since India was drowned in idol worship and anthropomorphism that a sudden step to monotheism would have been drastic and hence Buddha may have chosen to remain silent on the issue of God.

HE DID NOT DENY THE EXISTENCE OF GOD!!

But this was not enough for the cravings of human beings. THEY TOOK A GOD OUT OF BUDDHA!!

Many scholars consider the evolution of God within Buddhism as an effect of Hinduism. Many Buddhists adopted the local god and thus the religion of ‘No-God’ was transformed into the religion of ‘Many-Gods’ – big and small, strong and weak and male and female.

 

Sikhism:

    Mulmantra: The fundamental Creed of Sikhism says,

Sri Guru Granth Sahib, volume 1 Japuji, the first verse:

“There exists but one God, who is called The True, The Creator, Free from fear and hate, Immortal, Not begotten, Self-Existent, Great and Compassionate.”

It believes in strict monotheism!

 

Zoroastrianism:

        God in Zoroastrianism is known as ‘Ahura Mazda’. ‘Ahura’ means ‘the Lord’ or ‘The Master’ and ‘Mazda’ means ‘the Wise’; hence ‘Ahura Mazda’ means ‘the Wise Lord’ or ‘the Wise God’. Ahura Mazda stands for God, in a strictly monotheistic sense.

According to the Dasatir, Ahura Mazda has the following qualities:

  • He is One.

  • He is without an origin or end.

  • He has no father or mother, wife or son.

  • He is without a body or form.

  • Nothing resembles Him.

  • Neither the eye can behold Him, nor the power of thinking can conceive him.

  • He is above all that you can imagine.

  • He is nearer to you than your own self.

           So majority of mankind (may be all of them!) believe in ONE GOD ONLY. But they err in worshipping Him.

Thinking that they are worshipping the ONE GOD… actually they are worshipping something OTHER THAN GOD!!

 

Why is this happening?

What should be the requirements of a GOD?

 

WAIT UNTIL TOMORROW !!

Stop0think!

Are You A ‘Darwinist’?

30 Mar

 

Do you believe in ‘Darwin Theory’?

                       Darwin theory attempts to explain the origin of life. But it fails in every step. The first step of creating the precursors of life from non-living chemicals has not been experimentally replicated.

 

Stage One:

        From inorganic to organic – from the gases which presumably surrounded earth to the simplest amino acids, containing about ten atoms, which are the most basic of the biochemical universals. Experimentally, Stanley Miller in the United States showed in 1953 that by passing an electric discharge through appropriate gases, surprisingly large amounts of amino acids were formed. The experiments are acknowledged as a major breakthrough in understanding how life got underway. Since then other essential chemicals have been synthesized.

         However until today five of the twenty amino acids common to all living beings have resisted human attempts to create them artificially.

 A Russian biochemist by the name of Alexsandr Oparin (1894-1980) [1] first proposed in 1924 a model of the atmosphere of the primitive earth free of oxygen (oxygen literally eats up any primitive organic chemicals such as amino acids) containing hydrogen, methane, ammonia and water. Life on earth is shielded from certain death due to ultraviolet cosmic rays by the ozone layer, which blankets the earth between fifteen and thirty miles above the surface.

         Without oxygen in the atmosphere of the primitive, there would have been no ozone layer and the first living organisms have been wiped out by cosmic layers, and with oxygen present, the first amino acid could have not been produced.

 Imaginative and elaborate solutions have been written to solve this riddle. But for every suggestion, there is an insurmountable objection.

 

Stage Two:

      Assuming that there was (around 4 million years ago) a sea with a 10% solution of amino acids, sugars, phosphates, and so on, two major steps have to take place simultaneously. Amino acids must link together to form proteins and other chemicals must join up to make nucleic acids, including the vital DNA.

   Proteins depend on DNA for their formation and DNA cannot form without pre-existing protein. Nor is it relatively easy chemistry. Proteins are highly complex molecules. Where an amino acid typically has ten atoms, a protein may have thousands.

 

Stage Three:

      The formation of the nucleus.

 

Stage Four:

      The formation of the cell wall. [2]

 

Hmm… man came from monkeys.

See monkeys do not bother about us. THEN WHY DO WE BOTHER ABOUT THEM?

 

‘Survival of the fittest’, then why do monkeys exists now?

They all must have become humans now!!

 

But from ‘Survival of the fittest’ what he intented to say is, ‘White people are the highest race. The rest of the world should follow them!!’

   Think a little, you will realize this is ALL WRONG…

 

How can all these things around us be created by it’s own??

     If you say “This came from this and that came from that”, we have infinite number of things around us.

     Gradual self creation of infinite number of things must have taken place in infinite time..

       Infinite time indicates these things can never be created..meaning..the world can never be created..

 

Think my dear readers,

 

All these things cannot be created by itself.

A monkey gives birth to a monkey, that monkey will inturn give birth to a monkey only. Have you seen a monkey giving birth to a human?

 

Have anyone seen a monkey transforming to a human in it’s life?

 

Don’t cheat yourself by believing Darwinism.

Think, use the excellent brain which ‘God’ has given you.

 

 Stop0Think!!
