your comments are moving and very logical.I agree .Just want to tell you a story.Please hear out.

The other day a muslim friend was telling me how in koran its mentioned that allah can create anything from zarrah ( he described this as very minute). He also said he used to think about this and kind of didn't understand it. But now he knows.Zarrah is lke DNA and allah can create us from DNA.

I was so moved by his scientific explanation.Wow minute can only mean DNA.I also felt sorry that he didnt study Koran properly.If he did , he would have known what it says and how its mostly stupid and very little common sense:

Sura of The Believers (Al-Mu'minun) 23:12-14

"Verily We created man from a product of wet earth, then placed him as a drop of seed in a safe lodging, then We fashioned the drop a clot ('alaqa), and of the clot ('alaqa) We fashioned a lump, and of the lump We fashioned bones, and We clothed the bones (with) meat. Then We produced it as another creation."

I really cannot understand theories like DNA from such a simplistic and factually incorrect line.But my freind did or possibly some idiot like Zakir naik did it for him and he erroneously and in good faith believed that.

Same is the case with you.Will write to you again.My mission is to draw the attention of people,especially muslims to the foolishness... of islam ... I reckon with constant education islam will be completely eradicated in about 200 years.
