The brain of a human contains a network of organized and interconnected nerve cells that is so vast, it cannot even conceive of the number. This fully organized network consists of cells communicates with other cells in order to create thought, love, emotions, touch, regulate an incomprehensibly complex body, perceive through senses and perform uncounted [...]
Evolution preaches that nothing except random chance in connection with survival of the fittest produced the human brain. Since survival of the fittest does nothing but remove changes that had been created by chance, it is chance and chance alone that is supposed to create the changes in the first place. What are the odds that all [...]
Probably most of us have never taken the time to examine very carefully the number or arrangement of petals on a flower. If we were to do so, several things would become apparent. First, we would find that the number of petals on a flower is often one of the Fibonacci numbers. One-petalled … white [...]
Naturally Occurring Fractals (including plants, rivers, galaxies, clouds, weather, population patterns, stocks, video feedback, crystal growth, etc.) The geometry of Fractals brings us a new appreciation for the natural world and the patterns we observe in it.

“If the rate of expansion one second after the big bang had been smaller by even one part in a hundred thousand million million, the universe would have recollapsed before it ever reached its present size.” Stephen Hawking, A Brief History Of Time, Bantam Press, London: 1988, p. 121-125
Fine Tuning Parameters for the Universe strong nuclear force constant if larger: no hydrogen would form; atomic nuclei for most life-essential elements would be unstable; thus, no life chemistry if smaller: no elements heavier than hydrogen would form: again, no life chemistry weak nuclear force constant if larger: too much hydrogen would convert to helium [...]

Here is a lady who asks some good questions based on some of the misinformation.
Some Muslims believe that they caught a picture of one of the angles. God Knows best….
A very popular question among atheists is, ‘Granted that the existence of temporal things necessitates the existence of an eternal cause, why should that cause be the God of religion? Why can’t matter be eternal and be therefore in no need of an eternal creator?’ I shall argue, on an Islamic basis but at the [...]
Do Muslims see Muhammad (pbuh) has the founder of Islam?
Let’s think of an aspirin pill for a moment; you will immediately recall the mark in the middle of it. This mark is designed in order to help those who wish to take half a dose. Every product that we see around us is of a certain design even though not as simple as the [...]
From the moment man opens his eyes to this world a great order surrounds him. He needs oxygen to survive; it is interesting that the atmosphere of the planet on which he lives provides more than just the adequate amount of oxygen he needs.

The attributes of the universe which have hitherto been discovered by science point to the existence of God. Science leads us to the conclusion that the universe has a Creator and this Creator is perfect in might, wisdom and knowledge. It is religion that shows us the way in knowing God.

Living beings have to reproduce to continue their species. However, reproduction by itself often proves insufficient because, if living things fail to provide adequate care for their offspring, the newborn cannot survive.

he recent completion of the human gene map within the scope of the Human Genome Project is an important scientific improvement.

Breathing, eating, walking, etc, are very natural human functions. But most people do not think about how these basic actions take place.

The world today needs to talk to Muslims, particularly American Muslims. Since, Islam is the fastest (or of the fastest) growing faiths in the world, it becomes crucial to have a dialogue with the Muslim community directly.

How complicated ideas, become simple when we look at the bigger picture. Complexity leads to simplicity. Ecologist Eric Berlow doesn’t feel overwhelmed when faced with complex systems. He knows that more information can lead to a better, simpler solution.
William Ury, author of “Getting to Yes,” offers an elegant, simple (but not easy) way to create agreement in even the most difficult situations — from family conflict to, perhaps, the Middle East.
When a scientist looks into the telescope he gazes into the universe looking for a particular phenomenon or when a scientist looks into the microscope looking for a set of patterns in the micro world to solve their problems; they simply miss the bigger picture. Science tries to break down what is under study and [...]
There’s an angry divisive tension in the air that threatens to make modern politics impossible. Elizabeth Lesser explores the two sides of human nature within us (call them “the mystic” and “the warrior”) that can be harnessed to elevate the way we treat each other. She shares a simple way to begin real dialogue — [...]
God created man with attributes by which man can understand God. One of these attributes is the attribute to make. As God is The Maker, The Creative Power behind this awesome universe itself, he has imbued in man the keen need and ability to make also. So, man uses his own creative imagination drawing on [...]

Therefore there must exist something more than time, earth and creatures, which can satisfy this desire. This something is what people [...]

That is a good question. Part of the answer is in your question itself. Imagine two things: First, that there is no concept of space and there is no concept of time, and in such a state, there is no past, present, or future. One way to start understanding this issue, is if you read [...]
Question: “However, the only point I’m trying to make here is that if there was a God, as described in Qur’an, then He does have the right to expect to be worshipped all the time, as it is consistent with the Qur’an that the whole universe is worshipping Him.” Sounds pretty conceited, self centered and [...]
