I have always thought at how so many intelligent people simply dismiss the idea of existence of God to begin with, How illogical of man to proclaim that they created God ( with religion ).
How can the creation create the creator ? a good questions.
The Quran speaks about creation of mankind
- It is He Who has created you from dust then from a sperm-drop, then from a leech-like clot; then does he get you out (into the light) as a child: then lets you (grow and) reach your age of full strength; then lets you become old,- though of you there are some who die before;- and lets you reach a term appointed; in order that you may learn wisdom.” [40:67]
I believe More and More intellectuals need to really investigate the quran and look into things to understand things in context and greater context of good to mankind and all creation.
Indeed find the truth in the Quran.
- This is the Book about which there is no doubt, a guidance for the God Conscious 2:2
