Video: A Message to the Atheists

Excerpt from dawah leaflet shown in video:

The Miracle of DNA

DNA is found in a small part of each cell, its diameter is a billion times smaller than a millimetre. It contains the construction plan of the human body, with information regarding all the characteristics of a person from physical appearance to details about the inner organs. The information is in a code of 3.5 billion letters. The letters are grouped into 200,000 genes, which code for proteins in the body, which could be in eye, the brain, heart, etc. The correct order of letters determines the structure of the human down to the slighest detail, if the order was wrong the genes would be useless. You could be born with your ear on your back, or your hands on your chest!! How did these letters queue up to form a perfect sequence??

When people unfortunately, gamble, they may bet that the chance of a horse or football team winning is 10 to 1 or 5 to 1 etc. Compare this with the chance of just 1 average sized protein, being created from DNA: this has been calculated as 1 followed by 600 zeros to 1!!! And this is just one protein, remember DNA codes for around 200,000 proteins!!! One scientist famously said that this is as likely as a monkey typing out the history of mankind on a typewriter without making any mistakes in it!!!

  1. Are there any predecessors of DNA? Did it come out of nowhere? Did Allah bring it into being?

    • islamtees says:

      Allah created entities/beings/things with inherent qualities and characteristics. Thus, water has the ability to quence thirst and fire has the ability to burn and cause destruction, and so on.

      The DNA (the “plan”) and RNA (the “copy mechanism”) are both tremendously complex. So how reasonable is it to believe that these two co-dependent necessities came into existence by chance at exactly the same time? Thus it can be inferred and deduced that there must be a creator, designer, planner and originator, who is Allaah. Only an arrogant or bigoted person would deny this.

      Also, the muscles of a strong athlete will not be inherited in his offspring and the mind of a high quality scholar will not be transferred to his children by inheritance. Any quality that is not an intrinsic part of the genome is “temporal” and is not transmitted to the offspring by inheritance: Muslims circumcise their babies. Their children are not born circumcised!

      • “The DNA (the “plan”) and RNA (the “copy mechanism”) are both tremendously complex.

        How do you know it is Allaah and not another deity? I think it’s rude to say that “only an arrogant or bigoted person would deny this” because, I do deny this. If you think I’m arrogant and bigoted, then I’d say you are more arrogant and bigoted.

      • islamtees says:

        Listen, stop trying to antagonize us! Antagonize someone else since you’re supposed to be “great” at it. [Note: we’re being humorous here, don’t take it the wrong way.] Go and antagonize a Christian who believes in the Trinity by asking him/her, how can 1 + 1 + 1 = 1?!

        Did you even read the links we provided? May we encourage you to read the following one in particular:

        Establishing proof of a Creator to an atheist:

        Here’s an excerpt:

        One also must be aware that Atheism has many factors. It could be disillusionment with Christianity, or it could merely be out of arrogance and pride, or it could be due to belief in weird and wonderful theories such as the Evolutionary theory, or belief in other theories of the explanation for human civilisation on this Earth, all of which are merely theories, mere conjecture and playing with idle falsehoods, with no proof, nor evidence, nor sense nor justice.

    Another beneficial excerpt:

    If an Atheist was to pick up any everyday object [or take any natural phenonomen or process] and to reflect for a few short minutes, perhaps the reality of a “Creator” may become clear. Let us take a book for example.

    Firstly, this object, in and of itself and its mere existence, is proof in and of itself of the one, or the thing, or the being that brought it about, or was responsible for bringing it about, in its physical, tangible form. There is no way that the common-sense of any human, whether he lived 3000 years ago in the remote lands of Saharan desert or in contemporary times in the Amazon jungle or in down-town New York City or even if someone lived 1000 years from now can deny this. The most basic element of reasoning indicates that this deduction is true and is valid for any item, object, thing or being, animate or inanimate, man-made or otherwise.

    Secondly , the physical appearance of this object, in and of itself is proof, in and of itself, that it has gone through a process or numerous processes, and has been subject to a calculated, devised, organised, intelligent plan, before it came into being or its current physical state. And hence all of this gives evidence to various “actions” that were performed in order to bring this object into its current physical state. Either these “actions” were random actions occurring by chance, or they were calculated and devised. Common sense and even scientific principles cannot accept that something that is disordered turns into what is ordered by mere chance and randomness.

    Thirdly, the above two deductions, which are universally valid, akin to common sense, tied to reason and sanity, and which are rejected only due to arrogance or insanity, indicate 1) the existence of the entity or being which was responsible for the object in its current form (in our case, a book) and 2) the various attributes of this entity which brought it about and made it complete. Those attributes which are known by necessity and common-sense, include:

    a) Knowledge: the entity that was responsible for this “book” must have knowledge of a whole variety of different disciplines. E.g. publishing, laminating, printing, binding, cutting, formatting and so on. However, it will often be the case that there are many entities who collaborate in order to complete this handiwork, and they all have knowledge of their own respective disciplines. For example, the content of the book is the responsibility of the author who has specialised knowledge of the subject. Then the publisher, then the printer and so on. So the “book” indicates the presence of a whole variety of different sciences and disciplines.

    b) Power or Ability: the entity that was responsible for this “book” must have had the power or ability to perform this “work”.

    c) Will: the entity that was responsible for this “book” must have had a will, in order to choose to embark upon this “work” in the first place, in the particular manner it did, and to produce the end product in the way that it is.

    In addition to the above three essential attributes, it is also possible, by reflection, to deduce other attributes and qualities of the “entity” that was behind this “handiwork”. For example, the subject content of the “book” in our example, illustrates the intent or purpose of the entity in deciding to either write or publish the “book”, and we can continue in this manner until we gain more and more information about the “entity” that was responsible for this handiwork. And in light of this, explanation by random chance is ruled out as an explanation. Since randomness does not possess “knowledge” or “will” (by its very nature it cannot!).

    The above reasoning is universally valid, and can be applied by anyone, at any time, in any place or location, with any object, animate or inanimate. And it is the most conclusive evidence of a “Creator”. And any other form of reasoning or explanation to deny the existence of a “Maker” will always

    a) be mere conjecture built upon supposition, that is theoretical speculation
    b) or built around a significant level of chance occurrence,
    c) or based on emotional arguments rather than logical ones
    d) or based on bad personal experiences.
    e) or based around one’s inability to see or find explanations for certain external realities apart from the ones that are constructed upon by what is found in points a) to d) above

    So there is no doubt about an Originator and Creator.
