The difference between Science and religion…

Horsehead Nebula

…is that people can be convinced by religion.

You may be surprised by what I have said and it is the opposite of what is often suggested.

A common assertion made by atheists is the supposed scientific basis for their beliefs, and quoting theories such as Occam’s razor. What they do not tell you is that whenever there has been a major scientific discovery, the scientists of that generation often did not accept it. It was only the next generation that would take that information and apply it.

Mommy & mommy & daddy or mommy & daddy & daddy?

No, I am not talking about adoption and those with a keen eye would notice that both options have not two but three parents.

The UK research into creating babies with not the traditional two, but three parents. This bill still needs to pass in the House of Lords.

The selling point for this is to allow the changing/removal of genetic code that would normally cause serious genetic illnesses, but it could end up going all Gattaca on us.

There be interesting times ahead.

[Theoretical science] Simulations back up theory that Universe is a hologram

A team of physicists has provided some of the clearest evidence yet that our Universe could be just one big projection.

In 1997, theoretical physicist Juan Maldacena proposed1 that an audacious model of the Universe in which gravity arises from infinitesimally thin, vibrating strings could be reinterpreted in terms of well-established physics. The mathematically intricate world of strings, which exist in nine dimensions of space plus one of time, would be merely a hologram: the real action would play out in a simpler, flatter cosmos where there is no gravity.


Dinosaurs in Islam


This is random I know but I read an article about some dinosaur fossils in Austrailia and it just made me wonder about what Islam says about dinosuars. Is it said/written anywhere if they existed before/ after or during the time of Adam and what killed them? Was it a meteor or an astroid like scientists believe or was it the Great Flood? 


Please if possible back your answers with viable sources not just make stuff up...



Scientist: "Survival of the thickest" is making us stupid!

Well, this is an interesting one that goes against all the common theories. It is often suggested that people are getting smarter over time as they have to access more of their brain, in better ways due to education and all that.

Now a scientist comes across and suggests that we have been getting thicker for maybe longer than 2000 years!


Inventions and Discoveries from the Muslim World

Adnan Adrees & Sawsan Therese

Have you ever noticed that all the books on science and technology somehow only seem to be filled with discoveries and inventions from the likes of Aristotle, Archimedes, Da Vinci and Thomas Edison... but what about all the Muslims? Where are all our discoveries?

A period of a thousand years exists between these thinkers and when great Muslim men and women expressed their religiosity through contributions made to society and the sciences. So what were these contributions? And how many of these are used today?

Supernova explosion will be visible from UK

Astronomers say light from supernova of dying star 21m light years away can be seen with binoculars or telescope

An exploding star in a galaxy far from Earth should be visible from Britain soon after twilight this evening. Amateur astronomers will be able to observe the flicker of light from its violent death throes through a good pair of binoculars or a telescope, clear skies permitting.

The supernova – the nearest of its kind to be spotted in 40 years – lies in the Pinwheel galaxy, 21m light years from Earth.

Antimatter atom trapped for first time, say scientists

Antimatter atoms have been trapped for the first time, scientists say.

Researchers at Cern, home of the Large Hadron Collider, have held 38 antihydrogen atoms in place, each for a fraction of a second.

Antihydrogen has been produced before but it was instantly destroyed when it encountered normal matter.

The team, reporting in Nature, says the ability to study such antimatter atoms will allow previously impossible tests of fundamental tenets of physics.

The current "standard model" of physics holds that each particle - protons, electrons, neutrons and a zoo of more exotic particles - has its mirror image antiparticle.
