Atheism. A word to me synonymous with ignorance and arrogance, I associate atheists with an unwarranted temerity to criticize religion. I find it ironic that atheists think that religious people are ignorant and arrogant. Suffice to say, this debate will carry on forever.
Verily, those who disbelieve spend their wealth to hinder men from the Path of Allah, and so will they continue to spend it; but in the end it will become an anguish for them. Then they will be overcomed. And those who disbelieve will be gathered unto Hell. (Quran 8:36)
I used to be an atheist, but not for long. I am naturally inquisitive, both in scientific fields and philosophical fields. A long time ago, Science's explanation of the Big Bang and the creation of life seemed to me as a great explanation. Just visualise it!
A sudden explosion lights the dark sky (which you would not be able to see, since space wasn't supposedly created then), and suddenly all the energy and mass needed in the world to make the world is created. Then, all of a sudden, just by a small chance (0.000000000000000000000000001% chance), the earth forms at just the right temperature, the right distance from celestial objects, the right molecules to support life. Then suddenly, all of these molecules just randomly, JUST BY CHANCE, somehow sparked and arranged themselves in a way that it becomes a molecule that replicates itself, and somehow after
thousands millions of years, it formed humans.
I don't buy it.
Imagine someone telling you this: "A salvage yard on the south side of town blows up and all the metal pieces fly into the air and fall back down in one place forming a brand new Chevrolet Caprice car, and the motor is running."
"An explosion occurs in a forest and the trees go flying into the air and then suddenly they combine with some flying cloth to make a beautiful chair and then it lands in a furniture showroom complete with matching table and lamp."
You'd think they're crazy.
No one has ever seen before human times. No atheist can say, "I have seen the Big Bang and human evolution take place."
Creationism, on the other hand, has a lot of evidence in the form of scriptures, revelations and The Holy Qur'an.
Say those without knowledge: "Why speaketh not Allah unto us? or why cometh not unto us a Sign?" So said the people before them words of similar import. Their hearts are alike. We have indeed made clear the Signs unto any people who hold firmly to Faith (in their hearts). - The Holy Quran (Surah 2:118)
The theory of human evolution stemming from single celled organisms is also preposterous. Although there has been some evidence that some organisms evolve, or more accurately, adapt to their environment (like antibiotic-resistant bacteria), there is no evidence about single celled organisms having the capacity to change into multi-cellular organisms, and into humans.
And another thing, it still doesn't solve the question of why humans can think and communicate effectively, and be able to make amazing technology. If evolution was so real, then why aren't dogs talking to each other, why aren't birds chatting on Facebook (oh yeah, because they're tweeting instead), why don't elephants have huge skyscrapers?
It doesn't take a million brain cells to work out that Allah made us, and gave us our gifts. Alhamdulillah!
