The Qura'an & Science
I've always been a little a impatient with people who like to talk about scientific miracles in the Qura'an. The Qura'an is not a scientific book. Science is process of observation, hypothesis, experimentation & testing. The content of science can never be 'proved'. It can only be verified & validated by each successful experiment up until such time when someone designs an experiment to disprove it.There are no absolute truths in science.
So to watch someone struggling to interpret & re-interpret some verse of the Qura'an to make it sound as if it is a manifestation of some current science theory just irritates me because don't these people think how stupid they're going to look if 10 or 20 years from now this same scientific theory is discarded for a revised or more advanced one?
Science is just a human attempt to understand the physics of the universe & how we can use it to make our lives more comfortable. Faith is all about spirituality & metaphysics. It's about trying to draw closer to the Creator. The Creator doesn't need scientific theories. He doesn't need to try to understand the universe. He created it. He makes all the rules. He is omnipotent & all-knowing. He is NOT a scientist.
