When it comes to the subject of evolution of the species on Earth we can’t ignore what honest science is revealing. I’ve read dozens of technical articles myself on this subject, especially as it relates DNA studies with evolution. And as a result I’ve developed some opinions. One thing I find on DNA studies that makes them so reliable is that it’s so mathematical/objective rather than subjective like so many of the “soft” sciences are. In many ways DNA results and their implications remind me of the Theory of Addition. Don’t be hardhearted or else you’ll spend your life being blindsighted.

Hint: The Theory of Addition is that if 1+1=2 and 1+2=3 then 1+3=4. Most honest scientists who have tested this theory have come to the conclusion that it’s a solid one. That’s why we teach this Theory of Addition in the schools. So if your iman tells you that the Koran says that 1+3=5 then I think your iman is most likely mistaken.

1 - I don’t have an imam or iman.

2 - your analogy is insultingly oversimplified. DNA is extremely complex and a recent study indicated that there may be a lot more to DNA than scientists first thought. That the simple mapping was only the proverbial tip of the iceberg.

IMO, its quite egotistical and shows severe lack of wisdom to think everything in the universe can be explained. Theres nothing wrong with science but its worship is misguided.
