Harun Yahya disses "Islamic Scientists" (Part 2)
Posted by THHuxley on Wednesday, March 24, 2004

In the third part of his book , “The Qur'an Leads the Way to Science,” Oktar makes a tiny bit of progress. This is the list of “MODERN SCIENTISTS OF FAITH” and it is more than half again longer than his previous list; fully 155 named scientists.

And whereas the last list had NO Muslims at all in it, this one does a little better.

There is one.

Yes that’s right. Out of 255 “scientists of faith” that Oktar was able to come up with, ONLY A SINGLE ONE OF THEM WAS MUSLIM.

And the progress made here is balanced by the fact that in this current list, at least 18 of them are members of the most fundamentalist Christian movements in America, and openly consider Muhammad and the Qur’an to be tools of shaytan.

So it is difficult to figure out how the Qur’an could possibly have led them to science.

Here’s the list:

--- Once Again - khateraA_ - Wednesday, March 24, 2004 - ( 2 )
what are u trying to prove by this THHuxley? You have just (obviously) copied and pasted ONLY the non-muslim scientists. It doesnt make a difference no matter how many more athiest scientists list you present in this forum because obviousely Most of them are astray. This is also stated in the quran where Allah has mentioned that most of the mankind (especially in our generation) will be astray but shall we follow them? This is all part of the test in this life. If Everybody believed in Allah and followed islam then it wouldnt be a test would it? Unfortunately most people in this world have gone astray (as allah has mentioned) and they will repay for thier sins in the hearafter. I Thank Allah that i am not amongst those astray people and may Allah make my faith stronger and believe in him till death.

Fear Allah....to him is our return. May Allah guide you to the straight path...Ameen

------ KhateraA - Red_Scarf - Wednesday, March 24, 2004
THHuxley pasted the list from Harun Yahya's selection, not from his own selection of scientists. And he makes a well deserved point that you obviously failed to grasp. The Qur'an does not lead the way to science. If it did, then you wouldn't be learning from him, you would be teaching him instead. Thus, until the Muslims decide to branch outside of the Holy Qur'an, and seek the pools of knowledge that are graciously available, the non-Muslims shall continue to prevail over you.

The subjectiveness of Harun Yahya and his works has absolutely nothing to do with rejecting or accepting the belief in Allah. Pay attention Bro'.

"You have just (obviously) copied and pasted ONLY the non-muslim scientists."


Nope. You are wrong again ranger.

You can find the whole book on line. Go there. HarunYahya.com

See for yourself.

I posted EVERY scientist on his list. Every single one of them!

The fact that none of them are Muslim, even though they are being used by a Muslim Author to promote Islam and the Qur'an is the delicious irony that is the whole point.

Islam and science apparently ARE compatible.

Or Oktar would have found more than one out of 255. Don’t you think?
