“If the purpose of the universe was to create humans, then the cosmos was embarrassingly inefficient about it.”
Surah Ar-Rahman (55):
37. When the sky is torn apart, so it is (like) a red rose, like ointment
38. Then which of the favours of your Lord will you deny?
Humans wander around looking at things saying: “That looks like a rose” or similar.
OK, so it looks like a rose. What about the rest of the sentence. Was the sky torn apart?
This didn’t happen in the sky, this happened in space. In what way is it like ointment.
Religions tell us that their world view is the key to humility. Humility, to me, excludes thinking that a supernatural being created a universe 13billion light years wide so that he could test your faith and make sure you aren’t having same sex or pre-marital sex. Really? That’s what humility means to you? That’s pretty funny.
