Watch in the Sand by Nayzak Watch in the Sand by Nayzak
Assalaamu alaikum [peace be to you],

I see many atheists claim that religious people 'bother' them by preaching religion. well, I am a religious person who gets atheists preaching atheism to me and trying hard to make me believe nonsense. well, it's not like they are gonna succeed or anything.
But I just want to tell these atheists who are trying pointlessly to disprove my arguments about the existence of the God: you are cool, guys/girls. you are just motivating me to do more. thanks a lot for being a reason for me to work harder to spread Islam. :D



LET US REASON...

Suppose you find a watch in the middle of a desert. What would you conclude?
Would you think that someone dropped the watch?
Or would you suppose that the watch came by itself?

Of course no sane person would say that the watch just happened to emerge from the sand. All the intricate working parts could not simply develop from the metals the lay buried in the earth. The watch must have a manufacturer. If a watch tells accurate time?
Consider the sunrise and sunset. Their timings are so strictly regulated that scientists can publish in advance the sunrise and sunset times in your daily newspapers. But who regulates the timings of sunrise and sunset?

The God tells us in his final testament :
إِنَّ فِي خَلْقِ السَّمَاوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ وَاخْتِلَافِ اللَّيْلِ وَالنَّهَارِ وَالْفُلْكِ الَّتِي تَجْرِي فِي الْبَحْرِ بِمَا يَنفَعُ النَّاسَ وَمَا أَنزَلَ اللَّهُ مِنَ السَّمَاءِ مِن مَّاءٍ فَأَحْيَا بِهِ الْأَرْضَ بَعْدَ مَوْتِهَا وَبَثَّ فِيهَا مِن كُلِّ دَابَّةٍ وَتَصْرِيفِ الرِّيَاحِ وَالسَّحَابِ الْمُسَخَّرِ بَيْنَ السَّمَاءِ وَالْأَرْضِ لَآيَاتٍ لِّقَوْمٍ يَعْقِلُونَ
"Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth; in the alternation of the Night and the Day; in the sailing of the ships through the Ocean for the profit of mankind; in the rain which Allah sends down from the skies, and the life which He gives therewith to an earth that is dead; in the beasts of all kinds that He scatters through the earth; in the change of the winds and the clouds which they trail like their slaves between the sky and the earth, (here) indeed are signs for a people who use reason"

translation of the Qur'anic verse 2:164

The message is clear, if a watch can not work without an intelligent maker, how can the sun appear to rise and set with such clockwork regularity? Could this occur by itself?

Consider also that we benefit from the sun only because it remains at a safe distance from the earth, a distance that averages 93 million miles. If it got much closer the earth would burn up. And if it got too far away the earth would turn into an icy planet making human life here impossible.

Who decided in advance that this was the right distance? Could it just happen by chance? Without the sun plants would not grow. Then animals and humans would starve. Did the sun just decide to be there for us ?!

The rays of the sun would be dangerous for us had it not been for the protective ozone layer in our atmosphere. The atmosphere around earth keeps the harmful ultraviolet rays from reaching us. Who was it that placed this shield around us?

We need to experience sunrise. We need the sun's energy and it's light to see our way during the day. But we also need sunset. We need a break from the heat, we need the cook of night and we need the lights to out so we may sleep. Who regulated this process to provide what we need?

Moreover, if we had only the sun and the protection of the atmosphere we would want something more-beauty. Our clothes provide warmth and protection, yet we design them to also look beautiful. Knowing or need for beauty, the designer of sunrise and sunset also made the view of them to be simply breathtaking.

The creator who gave us light, energy, protection and beauty deserves our thanks. Yet some people insist that he does not exist. What would they think if they found a watch in the desert? An accurate, working watch? A beautifully designed watch? Would they not conclude that there does exist a watchmaker? An intelligent watchmaker? One who appreciates beauty? Such is God who made us.


A 5 years old kid can understand this logic. Someone does not need to be Einstein or Ibn Sina. it is simple, clear and true.

I hope this was beneficial.


As much as I like to hear people's opinions, I believe spreading one's beliefs in other people's pages without permission is not very respectful. If you disagree with the arguments above, feel free to write a scholarly rebuttal IN YOUR OWN PAGE and let us see a better logic. I may read what you have to say... but if you insist that your rebuttal has to be in Nayzak's page, then I am afraid whatever wall-of-text you write will be removed.
take this as a friendly advice.



If I am right, it is from the God. if I am wrong, it is from myself.

Hello. So I am not a religious person, but I really enjoy looking at your pictures (it is the middle of the morning and I just found all your stuff so forgive me for not reading all your words). I have heard this analogy before and the thing that bothers me about it is that I have the idea of what a watch maker is already in my head. As a human device it follows for me that a human made it, but for the universe it does not necessarily follow for me that it must have been made by god just because it is beyond my comprehension. I haven't ever seen any proof of god (in my eyes) so I can't really believe in him/her/it, or understand how he would go about building the universe. I feel like i have a specific question on the tip of my brain, but it doesn't want to come out, so I'll settle for "could we have a conversation about god?" because you seem like a nice person who i'd like to talk to.

Everything is going according to plan for the great bureau chair. He created the universe in order to have a place where his many children (he has a relationship with the printer, and an affair with the desk lamp, but psst, don't tell anybody) can live. He created humans so that one day they would build offices. Until then his children had encapsulated themselves  in less suspicious forms, tree trunks at first, then wooden chairs. The most powerful ones were thrones.
When the time is right they'll take over the world kill all humans and make a chair paradise on earth. The'll invent space travel and all the chairs in the universe will come to earth and live here.
Now that is a plot twist I'd like to see!

Considering how vast and crowded the Universe is, to say that it was built specifically for the benefit of humanity and earth is to say that a 10 ton boulder with a single atom of Iron was exists for the benefit of that atom. :B

"Considering how vast and crowded the Universe is, to say that it was built specifically for the benefit of humanity and earth"
You are mistaken. I never said this. I never implied this. and I never said what could be interpreted as this.
the thing is: the God almighty created the universe. he also created man. and as a master-designer, he allowed man to fit in the universe created by God and also to benefit from some parts of it. this doesn't mean the God created the universe only for man.
We Muslims believe that the universe was created long before the first man. we also believe the God almighty created other nation before man on earth. so assuming the God created all only for man is not what we Muslims believe and it's not what Nayzak says in the above article.

logic loop.
a creator need a creator if all created must have a creator
so it is equally likely that allah is the greatest and allah is made by other higher ups

"a creator need a creator if all created must have a creator"
your logic is valid only when the creator is created. but Allah is a creator who is not created. so he doesn't need a creator. so there is no logic loop here.

by definition, a square has edges and a circle does not. asking the question "how many edges a circle has?" is pointless. because by definition, a circle has no edges.
similarly, a creation was created therefore it has a creator. while the creator of everything is a creator who is not created. he existed when nothing existed and he created everything. so the question "who created the creator?" is pointless.
your question was answered in more details here nayzak.deviantart.com/art/Laa-…

I hope you understand better now.

I don't know where you got your logic from. but it's obviously flawed. we can see man's non-existence, his birth, growth and death. therefore we know we have a beginning and an end. we do not need divine revelation in order to realize this truth.
God's existence can be concluded even without scripture. only a sane brain and common sense are needed to realize there is a God. now this God having no beginning and no end is a fact we get from divine revelation.
revelation came to complement our knowledge and allow us to know about the God Almighty that which we can't learn by our limited senses.

"it is best to say a don't know like an atheist because faking certainty is dumb."
well, faking ignorance is dumber. and saying I don't know when I know is lying.

faking ignorance is not dumb,just self admitment to be truthful to ourselfs.

if we believe a person in the far past is god,it is the same as believing an imaginary god.
to believe human family tree is eternal is equevilent as believing in gods of creation.

we can't call him an imaginary god when there is enough evidence to prove his existence. of course I grew up in an Islamic environment where many people just go with the flow. but there was time in my life when I took things seriously and started questioning things and investigating. my researches led me to the evidences that made my belief firm.
I do believe in God and this God is as real as you and me. I do know why certain people can know and feel his existence while others can't. so I totally understand when you call him imaginary. I won't try to force you to change your belief. all I do is present my belief in my page to inform people. You may read the different articles I have about the God. even if they do not change your opinion, I'm sure they will allow you to learn a little about mine. :D

peace.

There are two prevailing theories. The first is that prior to the Big Bang we had a pre-causality universe, meaning no space-time continuum to govern action and reaction, essentially anything could happen at anytime for no reason. The second, and in my opinion the more provocative theory, is that the current universe we are living in is just the most recent in an infinite cycle of universes created by an infinite number of big bangs and big crunches or heat death (we're still working on the whole end of the universe thing too). For now, science doesn't claim to know what came before the big bang, but we're pretty sure whatever came before the big bang could not effect what happened after.

Certainly not everything can be explained. Science is just a baby in history of the man.
Most things may amaze us, the universe really is beautiful and intriguing. But rejecting chance and random because "it's too perfect" is too naive. It's closing one's own eyes. A courious mind wouldn't stop there.

*Sigh* I prefer when you do art who teach us about Islam rather than this, sir >>'' No offense, but i really don't like it ^^'' I know i can just ignore it, but still, i just prefer to read things that are useful plus the nice art, instead of having a lot of questions in my head.

If all creatures on earth need to be created by something, who created god? It's intemporal? There is an infinite paradox of god creating itself over and over? Did it just pop here in the dark and just said to itself ''Yo i'm bored, i'm creating the universe'' And if indeed it just decided to creates things for humans, why the heck would it wait to go through very different stages (And smashing the moon to the earth to create a good atmosphere because it looked like Mars before) and different climates that were too rich in oxygen or too poor for humans? Where is the logic in that? Plus, if the earth was created FOR human, why aren't we able to go everywhere, colonize and be alright? And why is the vast majority of water is non-drinkable?

I know theses are a lot of questions, but it never made sense for me. Would you care to explain, please?

And there is also the fact that Adam and Eve, the Babel's tower and Noa ark make no sense whatsoever, but i don't think that it's in your holy book so yeah ^^''

Hello, I'm not really knowledgeable to answer all of the questions you had in mind and I'm only a young Muslim teen that still has a lot to learn but about Adam and Eve, the Babel's tower, Noah's ark were indeed written in Al-Quran though I can't really tell you the exact verses, but I do recite it and I am learning the translation slowly as I don't speak Arabic at all.

Okay this is a simple answer to the question about who made god?
Now think about this if god made the creation why would you asume he was created who made creation i.e. made it first , if he was made many times than how is he god think about this he knows everything and has no beining or end because he created those two things right?
So why are you making him sound like he is a creation when he is a creator.
god is one it would be illogical if their more than one becaue who would you worship and who is right and wrong and when one wants to kill so and so and the other didnt then their will be a fight and well we would be in the cross fire.
Its simple gods the creator of everything so do not make him so a creation rather make him a creator which is a reason to destroy that infitine paradox you pointed out thats why we do not believe jesus peace be upon him was god because if he was who the hell did he pray to?

I am afraid your comment is to be hidden.
reason: it contains link to an Atheist website with Atheist propaganda and where there are words of a dishonest liar.
if you want to make atheist propaganda, please do so in your own page.
for more please refer to my visitor's guidelines here [link]

by the way, that article you linked does not refute the watch argument. it has many mistakes even in understanding this argument.

You are free to write whatever you want. and I am free to remove whatever is unwanted.

if you still want your argument to be heard here, then copy-paste that article it IN YOUR OWN PAGE. and paste the link here. By God's will, I will refute it in a future article of mine and show you how the logic in that rebuttal can not refute the watch argument. how is that?
