ERRONEOUS THINKING OF ATHEISM (A COUNTER ARGUMENT ON STEPHEN HAWKING PARADIGM)

Stephen Hawking is a famous scientist, specifically a cosmologist, who is identified as in disbelieve on the existence of Creator/God. In his book entitled  “A Brief History of Time” he stated a lot of phrases leading to such a disbelieve. His basic objective of life is to find a single mathematical formula that explaining the complexity of universe, the only empirical universe. So far no body has been successful to construct such a formula. Instead, more and more complex findings about universe need to be explained rationally. Should he be in over-expectation or even erroneous in thinking? (more…)

FAITH OVERRULES SCIENCE, WHY NOT? *)

Fuad Amsyari, Ph. D

Notes

I was struck when reading an article in Time magazine October 3, 2011 entitled “HOW SCIENCE CAN LEAD THE WAY, What we lose when we put faith over logic” by Lisa Randall, one of selected figures of ‘100 Time’. At front page ‘Time Features’, it was promoted as ‘THE LOSS OF LOGIC, What happens when faith overrules science’. In my opinion the article represents the classical thinking of politicians who believe that the idea of secular method, a method based solely on ‘scientific findings’ to manage a nation(s), is completely quite appropriate. Such an approach is certainly neglecting ‘faith’ (i.e. basic principles of religion, in particular Holy Book verses related to social-political aspect). They think that only science, including social-political science, no need of religious messages, will be able to answer correctly challenges in development process. I certainly disagree with such a premise. It is even quite misleading.

I hope this article can be published in Time Magazine as well, soon, to make a balance idea about systematic way of thinking on human development for the benefit of mankind. (more…)

WHEN ‘SCIENTIFIC FINDINGS’ ARE IN DISAGREEMENT WITH QUR’ANIC VERSES, the Area of Differences and the Rational of an Accurate Solution

Preface

Many politicians in Moslem world think that the idea of secular method, a method based solely on ‘scientific findings’, to manage a nation is quite appropriate. Such an approach is certainly neglecting Qur’anic verses related to social-political aspect. They think that science, in particular social-political science, will be able to answer correctly challenges in national development process.
