Teeming With Trivial Points

Thursday, December 6, 2007

You know I mentioned that I'm reading Bill Bryson's A History of Nearly Everything. Very slowly, I should say, since I'm also reading 5 other books at the same time.

Anyway, very slowly too cos I love it too much and I keep going back and forth, back and forth. You see, I'm a sucker for scientific titdbits. I love facts about the planetary system, the black hole, the Big Bang, how dinaosaurs dissapeared off the face of the earth, the Earth's core, the unicellular beings whose number outnumbers us greatly.

But this book tells me about the metals in the earth's core and about theories how life began on earth. I'm a scientific person, I love to think how things come together but I also am a failthful servant of Allah. And I know Darwin's theory is wrong, but this book tells me a lot more than that. It tells me that although man now, knows more than we did 200 years ago, what we know is what Allah lets us know. It's nothing new to Allah. It's his rules and his creations, like us too, God's creations.

There are a lot of things we have yet to understand like how giant squids become the sperm whale's staple diet when no one's seen one ever. And we know more about the surface of Mars than we do our own sea beds.

But the more I know, the more I affirm my belief in Allah because it really is a miracle, this Earth we're all sitting right now.

Allahu Akbar!
