Scripture and Science: Are their views compatible on how the Universe came into existance?

Concerning the religious view of how the universe came into existance, below are quotes from the last of the Abrahamic faiths' Scriptures, the Glorious Quran. God says:

2:117: "The Originator is He of the heavens and the earth: and when He wills a thing to be, He but says unto it, 'Be' – and it is."

19:67: "But does man not bear in mind that We have created him aforetime out of nothing?"

21:30: "Are, then, they who are bent on denying the truth not aware that the heavens and the earth were [once] one single entity, which We then parted asunder? – and [that] We made out of water every living thing? Will they not, then, believe?"

21:56: "He answered: 'Nay, but your [true] Sustainer is the Sustainer of the heavens and the earth – He who has brought them into being: and I am one of those who bear witness to this [truth]!'"

35:1: "ALL PRAISE is due to God, Originator of the heavens and the earth, who causes the angels to be (His) message-bearers, endowed with wings, two, or three, or four. He adds to His creation whatever He wills: for, verily, God has the power to will anything."

51:47: "It is We who have built the universe with (Our creative) power; and, verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it."

Another contribution by Zaki Khan: This is a compilation of some of the scientific facts already given in Quran – a 1430 year old revelation. Read what Quran has to say on – the two seas(salt water and fresh water), formation of the universe, animal communities, universe expansion, human reproduction,etc.Formation of the Universe – Surah 21,Verse 30 : "Do not the unbelievers see that the heaves & the earth were joined together , then we clove them asunder & We got every living thing out of the water. Will they not then believe"Surah 41, Verse 11 :"Morever (God) turned to the Heavens when it was smoke & said to it & the to the earth…"Sun as a source of light & the moon as a reflecting body -Surah 71,Verses 15-16 :"Did you see how God created seven heavens one above the other & made the moon a light therein & made the sun a lamp"Planetary Orbit -Surah 21 , Verse 33 : "(God is)the one who created the night ,the day,the sun and the moon.

Zaki Khan Again: Can Science prove God !!?Friday, 12. March 2010, 22:11Science, God, science can prove God "The harmony of natural law reveals an intelligence of such superiority that,compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beingsis an utterly insignificant reflection." – EinsteinThe Law of Conservation of Energy states that – Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed. ie – Energy remains constant. & another one goes like – Energy is basically one , it only transforms from one form to another …so here are my conclusions from this,with a different perspective -1. Energy can neither be created nor be destroyed –> Energy was never born(God was never born!!! ) … Energy will never die(God will never die!!!) = God is eternal2. God is oneFirst Law of Motion says that a body will remain in rest or constant motion unless & untill acted upon by an External Force. so the following conclusions may be drawn -1. Even with the initial creation of the Universe an "external" force must have been there to even initiate the Big Bang or even to amass the huge matter for Big bang … that initiator,that external force – God !!& finally… Read more »

51:47: "It is We who have built the universe with (Our creative) power; and, verily, it is We who are steadily expanding it."ok. who is we??? There were many gods and goddesses apparently but one Creator who mankind refers to with many names: God, Jehovah (questionable as this god of Abraham was originally a storm god as back then each family line had its' own god), Allah, and so on and so forth. Did this quoted line suggest that the Creator had help? again….we….hmmmm. That's why it's impossible to debate religion as each person has his or her own viewpoint. want the truth? ask the Creator sometime, I guess. Me, I want to know everything out of the mouth of the Creator, not the opinions of each and every man and woman. That would be a discussion worth having. LOL ! p.s., not starting a religious discussion here, just an observation of my own. You, yours are yours and you have the right to them and my respect of them and of you. cheers!
