Are there more "messengers of Allah"?
« on: September 05, 2012, 05:32:58 AM »
Since the "epilepsy explanation" of Allah's revelation has not been rejected yet (see my older post), here is an interesting question:

do you accept that Ellen G. White (7th day adventist), whose case looks similar, but in the 19th century, also received her revelation from Allah?

1. what are the reasons that make you accept Muhammad and reject White, rather than the other way? do you have any?

Consider all the arguments that Muslims usually give to Christians, in order to make them accept Muhammad, and apply them to the case of Ellen White.

2. By the way, your "ijtihad" is very unclear. See also: "And for every Ummah (a community or a nation), there is a Messenger; when their Messenger comes, the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged. (Qur'ân 10:47)"

Mr. Mokko,

Ignoring you is not an automatic concede to the validity of your arguments.  It's just that no one here really cares about these old lame and boring arguments that are presented by agnostics and atheists and Islamophobes.  The Glorious Quran is the Divine Miracle of Allah Almighty.  There are ample irrefutable Overwhelming Scientific Notions and Statements in the Holy Quran that I challenge you to refute.  The best you will ever do (because I've debated the likes of you before including the notorious agnostic Denis Giron) is cast doubts about the Noble Verses, or try to say something like "is it possible that it means something else".  The silencer to such lame and superficial arguments is not only in producing ample definitions, quotations from proverbs and sayings that even pre-date Islam, that demonstrate the meaning of the certain Noble Words in the Holy Quran using  encyclopedic Arabic dictionaries such as Lisan Al-Arab and others as I have thoroughly used, but the Numerical Miracles of the Holy Quran further prove the Holy Book's Divine Structure, and how every Word counts and was placed in its specific position for a Divine Reason.  The reader can visit: http://www.answering-christianity.com/ac20.htm#links to begin to study the many Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran.  And the list is growing.

To make it abundantly clear to you, Mokko, I certainly believe in the following:

1-  Allah Almighty is the Absolute One and Sovereign LORD and Creator of the Universe.

2-  Prophet Muhammad is Allah Almighty's Messenger and Prophet.

3-  The Glorious Quran is the Divine Book and Word of Allah Almighty.

4-  Islam is the Divine Truth and Faith and Creed and Religion of Allah Almighty that He sent to mankind, and to restore the original Faith, which was called "Islam".

And as always Mokko, please feel free to speak you mind as free as you want, as long as the words are dictionary-approved, and I am sure you're a proper person yourself.  I just want to make it clear that me disagreeing with someone, even strongly, is not a sign or warning for them to be banned.  I don't operate like this.  I go after the arguments, and not the individuals.

Take care,
Osama Abdallah

I am not sure that what you affirm is really incompatible with the Geschwind syndrome explanation (moreover, this explanation does not imply that he was "crazy", I insist). It was precisely the point of my post. You did not reply to it, nor anyone else.

My post was fully consistent with your "scientific miracle" project: I just asked if it was possible to re-read Quranic verses in light of scientific discoveries on Geschwind syndrome.

An angry and reactive attitude usually does not help in understanding the subtelties of an argument.

However, I will follow your advice, and look for a community that better suits my values and attitude.

Your post had nothing to do with the Overwhelming Scientific Miracles in the Glorious Quran.  They were about the validity of the Holy Book.  The validity of the Holy Quran, and the proof that It is Divine and the Truth of Allah Almighty is beyond question at this point.  No Geschwind syndrome is applicable to the Divine Revelations of the Holy Quran, and I've given you the proofs that the Holy Quran is not just a book of stories and claims that can not be substantiated.  The Overwhelming Miracles in the Holy Quran testify to Its Divinity.  You rejecting this without any solid proof, and you washing it all aside as under the so-called "Geschwind syndrome" simply has no value in it to any Believing Muslim.  Come and refute the Scientific Miracles of the Holy Quran and then you'll have a point.  If you'd like, we can discuss them one at a time.  So feel free to bring your best one and we'll discuss it.

Have it your way.  But I was hoping to discuss with you something about Science in the Glorious Quran than empty charges on the Prophet of Islam, peace be upon him.  Your charges about the Geschwind syndrome are nothing but a theory from the anti-Islamics against the Prophet of Islam.  My argument is, however, is giving you irrefutable facts that testify to the Truth of our Glorious Quran from the Glorious Quran.  If you strongly disagree with this, then I'd like to see your best example about this.  Bring them one at a time, and let us discuss them.  Otherwise, you have nothing but an empty theory my friend, at least to the Believing Muslims.

I do not get the whole point of "re-inventing the wheel" with the Quran.

It would be more interesting if, for example, you could use the Quran to make new scientific discoveries. In science, any inspiration is welcome.

In this matter, Ramanujan did much better: without any training in mathematics, he had divine visions of unknown and precise mathematical formulas (you cannot apply the adjectives "precise" and 'unknown" to your theory), which were latter proved to be correct. His visions are still a source actively used by the math community. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ramanujan#Personality_and_spiritual_life

However, it did not lead many people to convert to Ramanujan's religion. What about you? Would you convert to his religion, given its greater "scientific miracles"?

So I am not sure that vague verses that anyone can, a posteriori, twist the way he wants, could get a better treatment.

"Imagine that you are on a street with houses marked 1 through n. There is a house in between (x) such that the sum of the house numbers to left of it equals the sum of the house numbers to its right. If n is between 50 and 500, what are n and x?" This is a bivariate problem with multiple solutions. Ramanujan thought about it and gave the answer with a twist: He gave a continued fraction. The unusual part was that it was the solution to the whole class of problems. Mahalanobis was astounded and asked how he did it. "It is simple. The minute I heard the problem, I knew that the answer was a continued fraction. Which continued fraction, I asked myself. Then the answer came to my mind," Ramanujan replied.

This is a quote from the link that you gave.  Mr. Ramanujan might be a mathematical genius, and an expert in Calculus and Differential Equations, and has a great analytical mind, but he is not Messenger of GOD Almighty. 

I don't think you really read with care what I wrote to you, Mokko.  The Glorious Quran's Miracles in Science and Mathematics are what NASA and the Computer Age of today have begun to unveil.  And Allah Almighty made it very clear that He put those Miracles in the Holy Quran as a proof to Its Divinity.

So again, why don't you bring your best argument against the Holy Quran's Scientific Miracles and see if our Holy Book is Miraculous or not?

I understand you to mean that Ramanujan was too smart to be trusted as receiving "external" revelation. Ramanujan should have been intelligent enough to produce his revelation "internally". Nice compliment for Muhammad's intelligence (i do not share this view).

So again, why don't you bring your best argument against the Holy Quran's Scientific Miracles and see if our Holy Book is Miraculous or not?

My second best argument is that proofs are built on precision and clarity. If science did not pay attention to precison, it would split into sects, like some religions. I am sorry to say that your "miracles" are not precise enough to be useful for ordinary people. Most science is made by ordinary people, not geniuses, and these people need straightforward proofs, step-by-step arguments, like children. Otherwise, they do not understand. They are too dumb to read between the lines accurately.



If you can find the receipe of a drug against cancer in the Holy Book, it would be nice to share it. Ibn Kathir did not. This proof is not sufficient for you?

My best argument is: if you seriously believe in your theory, apply it yourself: use Allah's knowledge to solve hard scientific problems (you have plenty of choice), unveil them before the Nasa does, and believe me, many people will follow your method, as there is a lot of money at stake.



Example: here: http://www.answering-christianity.com/speed_of_light_in_quran.htm you say that the speed of light can be determined from the verse: [Quran 32.5] "(Allah) Rules the cosmic [btw, do we find the word "cosmic" in the arabic version?] affair from the heavens to the Earth. Then this affair travels to Him a distance in one day, at a measure of one thousand years of what you count."

I honestly do not see how this verse could have anything to do with the speed of light. But maybe you have better ijtihad skills than me, and in this case, you can help the world:  can you tell us how to predict the three-dimensional structure of a protein from its amino acid sequence?
see: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein_structure_prediction

Do not wait until someone else solve this problem, in order to tell us which verse to read, and how to interpret it. Millions of lives are at stake (cancer, viruses...), it is an emergency.


Up to now, the most famous application of this kind of method is Ibn Baz's famous proof, in 1969, that the earth was flat. He carefully read hadith and Quran, and did not care about "non-Islamic" information. In short, Ibn Baz conducted what doctors call a "blind experiment" (!).

It is enough to show that this "knowledge" does not produce interesting results. Maybe tomorrow, with a better method of ijtihad (out of reach with today's knowledge), some Muslims will do better. After all, it is not impossible: science also needs confidence and inspiration.

I do not see how the "scientific miracles" of your website are any different from those of Virgil’s Georgics’:

http://wikiislam.net/wiki/NATVRAE_MIRABILIS_ORIGINISQVE_DIVINAE_GEORGICAE_VERGILII

However, I would certainly agree with your "under-message": faith and science should not be opposed, Muslims should not abandon Islam in order to become good scientists, quite the contrary, they can find strength inside their faith, Muslims have the potential to do better than the Nasa....but unfortunately, the path you've taken to exemplify those claims is not correct.

I shall say that your work is counter-productive, in order to attract reasonable people to find some truth in the Quran.

But I am afraid that we have to accept that we do not live in the same mental world, and that trying to establish channels of communication between the two is a waste of time.

1. Muhammad wasn't just a mere man, he was a descendant of Abraham.
2. He preached the monotheism, the belief in One God.
3. «During the 23-year period of his prophethood, he changed the entire Arabian Peninsula from paganism to worship of the one true God, from tribal warfare to national unity, from anarchy to disciplined living, from barbarism to the highest standard of moral excellence. At the time of his death most inhabitants of Arabia and the southern regions of Iraq and Palestine had voluntarily embraced Islam. To posterity he left a creed of pure monotheism that included comprehensive legislation based on a balanced system of moral values.» (Clear your doubts about Islam, Sahih International)
4. After the start of his Prophethood, a lot of people started believing in One God and stopped worshipping idols.

Same old boring “arguments” really, worthless thread, worthless discussion, worthless points, and that I really mean it, usually I won’t start a post this way but for some types of people (and the “arguments" they bring) that’s really the only way you can find of properly dealing with them, even if it may be against the usual way you deal with people in general.

You seem pretty new at this, have you just discovered answering (attacking but blatantly failing at it) islam recently or something?

No anger here either because those kinds of arguments you’re presenting have been around for years and years and none of them have been or will ever be taken more seriously than the time it takes to quickly take care and refute them and the empty theories and false charges they involve nearly 100% of the time one after the other, but anyways…

I’ve been following this specific thread for maybe since yesterday now and have also read all your previous posts, I thought of responding to everything you’ve brought up in thorough detail but that would be such a waste of time for nothing and I just don’t feel like losing hours typing all that out, so I’ve just refrained at the last minute of doing so :)

However since you seem fond of bringing up that Geschhwind whatever syndrome and especially Ellen White (never had heard of her before personally) as one of your “arguments”, (even though if we had to weight the values of each one you brought up, as weak as they may all be as a whole, the ones with Ellen White would definitely be the weakest) I just felt like responding to this one real quick since it’s a walk in the park and won’t require much time at all.

So basically you’re comparing Ellen White to Prophet Muhammad PBUH and in summary all your arguments regarding her are an extension of this:

Quote
1. what are the reasons that make you accept Muhammad and reject White, rather than the other way? do you have any?

Consider all the arguments that Muslims usually give to Christians, in order to make them accept Muhammad, and apply them to the case of Ellen White.

Do you realize how weak that is?

Really quickly, Ellen preached by the Bible and believed “that only the Bible is sufficient for forming doctrines and beliefs” (from the link you gave, end of first paragraph at the top).

The magic keyword here is “Bible”.

Do you know what this really means as to her claim of prophethood being all based on the Bible for this specific point, and do you know how weak this made your arguments sound? Please go study and read up a bit more about the Bible.

A good starting point which you might be able to connect more with since a lot of your arguments deal with science would be to give the “Creation of the Universe” accounts from Genesis in the Bible a closer look and try and give it some thought.

And that's only the tip of the iceberg compared to what could and can be said with absolute certainty when it comes to the Bible, no lies and no fake theories, but that'll suffice in regards to that "argument" of yours.

And then the rest was pretty much as weak but that won’t be dealt with since my time is running out, the Ellen one though was the quickest I could deal with so that’s that.

Also just so we’re clear, my intention never was to argue with you or continue the “debate”, I just felt like throwing mine in real quick where you’re throwing yours, that is all.

I'll keep an eye on the thread but probably won't post anymore so don't count on any further reply from me, however I might if any point brought up is good enough for it and isn't just as ridiculous as 95% of your "arguments" up until now.

Need I say more? No.

And may Peace be upon you.

--------
EDIT: I just read this one another time and it made me laugh, I’m not even kidding :))

I had to put it back in here so people could see it a couple more times when good comedy is needed:

Ellen White did similar things in America, and maybe even some better things.

And that will be all for tonight, but I have to admit that one was good, for real :)

i failed to see how the Bible is significantly worse than the Quran from a scientific viewpoint. It is not a surprise, since the second is directly inspired from the first (but just more vague).

I tried to correct groupthink in this Muslim forum, but it was too difficult.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Groupthink#Symptoms

To make groupthink testable, Irving Janis devised eight symptoms indicative of groupthink.:

Type II: Closed-mindedness

Stereotyping those who are opposed to the group as weak, evil, biased, spiteful, impotent, or stupid.

"monotheism would have been transfered from generation to generation!" Not really.
"become a pagan in the first place" Some proof would be great.

And every soul earns not [blame] except against itself, and no bearer of burdens will bear the burden of another. Then to your Lord is your return, and He will inform you concerning that over which you used to differ."
«We were the lowest of all people and then Allah gave us glory by Islam, and if we seek glory in anything other that what Allah has given us, Allah will disgrace us.» Umar ibn Khattab
