Limits of our science: Electron & Atom

By: Dr Salama AbdAlhady(PHD)All of atheists are claiming the power of science. They want to see God

because all of them are scientists who know and see everything clear and defined by their scientific means. I just offer an example of our ignorance as scientists to see or to know a particle that is considered the core of most of our scientific work in most engineering fields; the electron. We cannot see it. We cannot identify its nature: Is it a wave or a particle?  This is a proof of our failure and ignorance as scientists. In many experiments the electron may behave as a particle. In others; it behaves as a wave. No scientist can decide what is the correct answer? Similarly; we build all our scientific works on imagining certain shape of the atom. We are obliged to believe an imagination of the shape of the atom as assumed by a scientist called “Bohr”, who imagined a model of such atom. The nature of this atom is also confused; if it is a mass-particle or it is a wave. We claim that Bohr’s model is the shape of an atom. But no scientist can decide it is CORRECT OR NOT! However; we believe such unseen electron of unknown nature exists to explain what is going around us.

  Similarly; we believe such unseen atom of unknown nature and structure  exists to explain also what is going around us and as a key for all our discoveries. So; why we should claim that the science is a deciding evidence to proof the existence of God by direct tools, i.e. vision and a defined or known nature. Scientifically; there should be ONE “UNSEEN” GOD of “UNKNOWN NATURE” to explain what is going around us. Just look how you see and how every creature can see; insects, birds, animals, fishes. All have two eyes that see one photo by the same means and theories and light and nerves and retina and cones and pulses and... The sun is created and designed to send proper radiation to lighten our earth in the day-hours by specified wavelengths that suit the similarly created eye-retina of all creatures ; insects, animals, birds, fishes All have also two ears that hear the same words by the similar designed engineering structures that make use of sound waves that transfer in air as an elastic medium. Air is designed by proper density to transfer the sound waves which are converted in the hearing system by the same hearing mechanisms in all creatures to mechanical pulses and then to electric signals and then interpreted into designed words. Similarly; all creatures are created by the building block: the cell which performs the same functions in all creatures. All creatures have the same systems and organs; the blood circulatory system, the breathing system, the digestion system, head, arms, legs, nose, mouth, teeth, etc. Can we imagine, scientifically and logically, these are not designed by ONE CREATOR?!
I hope to make our MINDS!!! How to explain such uniqueness and perfectness in CREATION without believing in ONE CREATOR.
In the Quran it is said that such uniqueness is the proof of ONE CREATOR. It is mentioned also that our vision is limited in the space coordinates; in both limits; the smallest limit and the largest limit. In the largest; our vision cannot see God or His Infinite Universe. In the smallest; we cannot see the photon, the electron and the atom. So; we are unable to see the atom and the electron. But we believe in them! Such facts are clear in this verse:
067.001 Blessed be He in Whose hands is Dominion; and He over all things hath Power;-
067.002 He Who created Death and Life, that He may try which of you is best in deed: and He is the Exalted in Might, Oft-Forgiving;-
067.003 He Who created the seven heavens one above another: No want of proportion wilt thou see in the Creation of (God) Most Gracious. So turn thy vision again: seest thou any flaw?
067.004 Again turn thy vision a two times (one in the infinite limits of the universe and another in the smallest limits of the atom, electron and photon: (thy) vision will come back to thee dull and discomfited, in a state worn out.So; why to claim we are atheists because we are scientists. The real scientist should confess; he know nothing really if he did not know “GOD EXISTS.”
