Throughout history myths and superstitions crept under the banner of religion, as religion was the dominant institution in almost every society. As a result, the true nature of God was masked and distorted, as those in command of other institutional spheres molded it to get incorporated under its banner, even as they altered the message. As the religious institution lost its dominant position after the enlightenment (and the "scientific revolution") to the economic sphere, to believe in religion came to be considered childish stupidity by modern literary giants.

Organized religion, all of it, is the co-opted bureaucratized form of the social movements for change (based upon God in the most part) that were initiated by the charismatic leaders we call prophets. After their passing, as part of a social structure, their message was co-opted, added to, distorted and made into a fitting in mechanism. If you note carefully the message of the prophets in the major 'religious' traditions, all of them argue against the organized religions of their time, and talk about restoration of the original message for social change not "fitting in". Islam is not a religion, just as the "organized religion of Islam" is not Islam according to the Koran.

In the face of such opposition to God and the monopolization of the concept by the organized religions, we come across The Koran (QUR'AN). It is a small, though unique book, in many aspects.

No other book claims to be the very words of God as spoken in the first person. No other book claims to be without error or contradiction, originating from the one who has "knowledge of everything". No other book provides falsification to prove it wrong, as demanded by the scientific community and finally no other book challenges people of learning to a final debate of authenticity based on knowledge and verification

Let us look at the Koran (Qur'an) and see whether these claims deserve attention and whether God is a myth like superstitious religion or a reality on which all civilization depends.

With this thought I welcome you to this web site

"If we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone, not just a few scientists. Then we shall all, philosophers, scientists and just ordinary people, be able to take part in the discussion of why it is that we and the universe exist. If we find the answer to that, it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason- for then we would truly know the mind of God."
(Stephen W. Hawking, A Brief History of Time, 1988)

".....The nature of God, according to which he has originated humankind. There is no changing the order that God has established. That indeed is the STANDARD established paradigm (deen al qiyyam). But most among humankind understand not
(Koran 30:30)

Envision yourself living in 7th Century Arabia: Society has very little scientific knowledge. Bedouin tribalism is the "dominant feature" of the population (The Arabs in History , Bernard Lewis (1958), page 23). This mostly desolate area in which you live, is an "oral" culture, with a "nomadic" lifestyle. Very few people know how to read, even fewer know how to write. Myth and magic controls people's thoughts and guides their rituals. Trade routes to the north (and the resulting contact with the major Empires) has very recently been restored, after two centuries of decline and deterioration (The Middle East: A Brief History of the Last 2,000 Years , Bernard Lewis, 1995). How far would you go if you wanted to discover the true origin of the universe? How much progress would you make if you wanted to uncover the origin of life?

We can move away from Arabia and scan the world scene at that period in history. Nothing in the literature of the world, including the literature of the ancient Greeks, comes even remotely close to the accuracy of statements, without error, about the natural world, contained in the Koran. In fact some of the information that we come across in the Koran was not known until about 40 years back and some of it was not known until the day it was read in the Koran by scientists just a few years ago. I invite you to take some time and join me in this fantastic adventure....
