Maybe a bit of respect is due to the OP author for presenting his case. Your disagreement can be presented by pointing directly to the particular part. Hopefully with this way it would keep the spirit of discussion alive. Please point it to him directly by clicking the "Quote" button so we know which one is being disputed as the disagreed part.

That's already been done, Nothing.  However, when I get told on a debate site that I'm not allowed to disagree with his thesis, it tends to bring out my sarcastic side.

I'm pretty sure Einstein never said that, and I don't know of any mainstream 'atheist scientist' who ever has. Richard Dawkins, for example, talks of probabilities, not certainties. In The Grand Design (2010), Stephen Hawking only concludes that supernatural intervention was not required. (Forget the silly newspaper headlines.)
God has the right to remain silent. For His advocates, however, each resigned shrug is a missed opportunity to win new converts.

Hawkings Tysons Krausses & Dawking are making claims on the basis of science which has been openly challenged and accordingly put for discussion here. They are making claims on the basis of paradigm defined by Einstein. Now this is straight & relevent to the discussion that Einstein has been mathematically, theoretically, experimentally proved to be great trickster in a published scientific research article titled 'Experimental & Theoretical Evidences of Fallacy of Space-time Concept and Actual State of Existence of the Physical Universe (www.indjst.org; March2012) available on the linkhttp://www.indjst.org/archive/mar-2012/1-mar%20khan.html.
These being findings of scientific research article published in peer-reviewed journal so no Tom, Dick & Harry can reject or question the findings in the published article for which the well known & accepted scientific proceadure is publication of the valid rebuttal article in peer-reviewed journals. Till that time Einstein's brian is not to be considered as the brian of genius ever but that of the greatest trickster.Science proves without any doubt whatsoever that the universe exists because of a Creator and would annihiliate as & when the Creator desires. The Creator exists not by examination of wonders & also not by perfect design of the world & the universe but for the reason universe could not have been there without a Creator. Since humans cannot see the Creator, because of the shortcomings of the humans, deduction is also a very well known scientific method.
Consciousness & conscience being outside the domain of physical & biological sciences but as humans know about nature through consciousness then how could a scientific method be applied to know the nature, origin & purpose of humans. It has to be through philosophy and humanity would require very genuine philosophers to do it.
Uniform innate human morality is a very well known philosophical conclusion and if one considers the tenants of human morality it is designed so that humans could live in a society where peace & justice prevails.
For the corruptions of religions humans cannot reject God & instead of rejecting the God they should identify & rectify and reject the corruptions in religions.The basic facts about religions are very simple in principle and also very simple to explain. Humans have souls and souls possess following characteristics which every sensible human can perceive
 1. Human Ego (the I of the individual)
2. Innate knowledge of the Creator
3. Innate Moral Law (innate knowledge of rightness & wrongness of all actions humans may do & even think of doing)
 Now souls are not made up of matter and are made up of substance which cannot be physically seen. Every human can know these contents of their souls through 'Know Thyself' as said by Socrates.
 God sent all the prophets to convey good news & as warners.
 Good news is that human souls are eternal and warning is that humans will be answerable for the actions of their lifetime as to whether they lived in accordance with the defined Moral Law and in the afterlife their state of existence would depend upon their actions of the lifetime. These two facts are not innate to humans but scientifically we can easily know the eternity of the soul.
 This is crux of religion & everything which contradicts these basic principles of religion is corruption. Corruptions in almost all religions could be rectified by the courageous philanthropist philosophers because such philosophers should have the courage to stand against everybody who would resist the rectification of corruption. Unfortunately they have to be against the whole world.
 Now their has to be a system of governance where the law is based on Moral Law. These courageous philathropist philosophers could only conceive a practicable socio-political system under which peace & justice can prevail in the world.

Mohammad Shafiq has the right to question scientific hypotheses and theories. And the scientific community has a right not to embrace Mohammad Shafiq's findings. That's how science works. Peer review is critical. So far there are no peers with a good science reputation who endorse Mohammad Shafiq's views.

On a side note: Einstein and Planck can't both be right. Something's missing in either Einstein's general relativity or current quantum theory.

So far there hasn't been a single witness of God violating the natural laws. These laws are pretty reliable. And if God created them (as Muslims and Christians believe) why would He later get involved to violate them?

A religion that's intolerant of other religions can't be the world's best religion --Abdel Samad

Matt, there's a huge difference between "Einstein and Planck can't both be right" and Einstein's theories being "trickeries and trash".  Einstein's genius had nothing to do with his belief or disbelief in a God and he wasn't trying to and didn't prove or disprove God's existence.

If God never violated natural laws then there could be no miracles, only remarkable coincidences. And what use is a miracle without at least one witness? e.g. Miracle of the Sun.
 
On the other hand, a lot of Christian theodicy (eg Plantinga) points to the relative scarcity of such good old-fashioned 'in-your-face' miracles. These days, it seems that God is more inclined to intervene mysteriously and indirectly, so as not to 'give the game away'. Revealing Himself would only make Faith unnecessary, which rather defeats the point. Even the most unworthy souls would start believing, fervently. But then, if everyone is special, no-one is. Which is why the tsunami of 2004 was made to look as if it had been caused naturally, by geophysical forces. No direct evidence of God's handiwork.
 
The same reasoning is relied on by creationists to explain away empirical observations that don't 'fit'. You could call it divine 'evidence tampering', but for a higher purpose. Let's face it, God is pretty clever. And whenever the end justifies the means, why would He not violate His own laws?

It is most interesting to read that someone would rely solely on a tale told by a fallible man than the product of millions of experiments on a singular question. Your logic speaks only of accepting an a truth that cannot proven beyond the word of man. I call this ignorance. I believe in God, the creator of all living and nonliving entities within the cosmos. However, Islam/religion in general is the product of man's, who in his essence is fallible, desire for power and control of the thoughts and beliefs of the masses. Those who cannot find God within them and have to be shown God through a flawed creature is a creature that subconsciously wants nothing more than to be told what to do, how to do it, and when. I pity those fools of Islam.


You are drifting away from the current. I took a liberty by copy and paste it for you. Please don't be a couch potato.
