God and Mathematics

Pythagoras: “All things accord in number.” Plato: “The highest form of pure thought is in mathematics” Nicomachus: “As it appears, the universe is designed with mathematics.” Hrovista Gandersheim: “God created the world from nothingness and constructed everything with numbers.” Rene Descartes: “All intellectual issues can be united and should be united through mathematics.” Galileo Galilei: “Mathematics is the language God wrote the universe with.” David Hume: “If we take in our hand any volume of divinity or school metaphysics, for instance; let us ask, does it contain any abstract reasoning concerning quantity or number? No. Does it contain any experimental reasoning concerning matter of fact and existence? No. Commit it then to flames: for it can contain nothing but sophistry and illusion.” John Arbuthnot: “Mathematical knowledge adds vigour to the mind, frees it from prejudice, credulity, and superstition.” Arthur Schopenhauer: “All truth passes through three stages: First, it is ridiculed; Second, it is violently opposed; Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” James Jeans”The universe appears to be have been designed by a pure mathematician.” Albert Einstein “How is it possible that mathematics, a product of human thought that is independent of experience, fits so excellently the objects of physical reality?” Paul Dirac: “If there is a God, he’s a great mathematician”

Practical Benefits of Code 19

Interestingly, with the exception of a few, most of your criticism was focused on some of the errors in Rashad’s early works, which he corrected afterwards. During our debate in London, which was sabotaged by the moderator of your choice, you indulged in those early errors. You forgot that you could do exactly the same thing to refute the heliocentric model, by finding errors in Copernic’s calculations. Similarly, you could reject the theory of Evolution by listing the many errors in Darwin’s book or the work of other scientists who did substantial contribution to the theory of evolution.

Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips, a Hoaxer or a Murderer?

Though, unlike his sheikh he was raised in the Western world and studied in secular schools, he got his share of backwardness from the same “university” where Sunni students are trained in ignorance. In his Hoax book, Abu Ameenah briefly mentions my name:

Innumerate, Ignorant and Arrogant Sunni and Shiite Scholars

Muslims started developing theories regarding the number of the letters of Bismillah after the revelation of “one of the greatest” (74:35) miracles in 1974. Interestingly, after realizing the radical theological ramification of Code 19, contemporary Sunni and Shiite scholars started disagreeing on the number of letters contained in Bismillah. To deny the existence of the Code, every possible argument, regardless how ridiculous, is tried. Some clergymen increased the number of its letters to 20, 21 and even upto 22. Some preferred to reduce the letter count to 18. We will discuss this preposterous but common reaction to the mathematical structure of the Quran later.

Dogmatic Skepticism and Organized Atheism (2 of 2)

The leading American skeptic, Michael Shermer, after getting disoriented in an interview which he calls an “ambush”, engages in a pre-emptive strike. He responds with a criticism infected with logical fallacies such as poisoning the well, straw-man, red-herring, hasty generalization and a false innuendo about my prison term in Turkey. After analyzing his article, I suggest to options.

The Story of a Precious Crown

You are shocked. You cannot believe that the inscription was a false promise. You feel confused and contradicted.

What to do with this?

The 19 Rules of Inference

The prototype disbeliever who is challenged by the number 19 is described as the one who makes erroneous inferences (74:18-20). The repetitious reference to his fallacious logic emphasizes the importance of thinking and inferring properly.

God has embedded in our hardware and system software the rules of logical thinking (rooh and aql), which amazingly work perfectly in harmony with the rules of external or natural world. If we employ these rules they will help us to understand God’s law in the nature and the scripture. Our ego, our weakness to follow the crowd, our short term petty interests and similar interference can prevent us from employing those rules correctly or efficiently.
