"Islam in all its splendor, may once again, take the dominant position of monotheism in tomorrow's world." - according to statistics. Whats Islam got to do with modern science, technology and governments? Can an ancient religion really influence today's leaders of the world? Some say, "Yes." This is the conclusion of several "experts" after studying historical, religious and geographical reports and then applying simple probabilities. "Consider," they say, "given historical evidences and bringing into the equation today's circumstances world-wide, there can no doubt be a serious possibility of Islam becoming the dominant world religion for the masses."Although it is unlikely whether Muslims would do much about it, there is some very relative and impressive statistical information regarding modern day trends amongst our planet's population regarding religion. Should they decide to leave off fighting and killing each other, the Muslims might just discover the very unique position for the religion of Islam the planet's future. Muslims could find their religion of Islam to be well-positioned to become the dominant world religion of tomorrow.Look to the facts; Judaism is for all practical purposes, out of the running entirely as a world leader, due to the ethnic structure of their faith. Basically, you can not really "join" Judaism; you are either born a Jew or you are not. In this regard Christianity and Islam are both far more competitive in that both proselytize and actively encourage and welcome new converts to their respective faiths.As Judaism is disqualified due to the lack of increased membership, so too, is Christianity falling behind in population numbers due in part to a lower birth rate than that of the Muslims on a world wide scale. Statistics indicate the population of followers of Christianity to pale in comparison to the number of new births to followers within the monotheistic faiths. This is where Islam begins to move ahead in the race for world domination as tomorrow's leader in monotheism. Christianity suffers from a large number of next generation drop outs, who simply no longer care about religion at all and are far more concerned about education, careers and getting ahead in today's world, while choosing to have more open relationships not requiring marriage or committments. Muslims, at the same time, are more dedicated to participation in worship, marriage and having children.The next consideration for a faith of tomorrow would be the rational of belief and compatibility with testable evidences in today's scientific and highly technological society. Concepts, beliefs and notions would necessarily need to come into some area of reality and be at least somewhat practical in application.Converts to Islam are swapping their crosses for Qurans in alarming numbers for a number of reasons, all pertaining to the ideological offerings of the faith itself. Consider if you will, the number of scientists and professors in various fields of knowledge and disciplines facing serious problematic errors in their former theories regarding evolution, big bang and survival of the fittest" concepts. These can no longer be taken serious in light of the latest technologies and discoveries in today's world. DNA testing, studies related to chromozones and stem cell research have forced atheist scientists to concede, as one might reluctantly admit, "In light of recent discoveries and lack of any other scientific evidences it would seem that at least certain species of life have no pre-existing form or status to have evolved from. Therefore, we would have to concede, at least in some instances, there appears to be some source of intellegent design.""Intelligent Design"? According to some modern day scholars of Islam, this is exactly what was mentioned within the teachings of their religion (Islam) over 14 centuries ago. Is this possible? Is it likely? Could there exist a "Real God"? One who created all things? Well, this is not a new concept to the monotheists of Judaism or Christianity, as they have always asserted their belief in the Creator God, Sustainer Lord, as the One God. After all, that is what makes them a monotheistic faith, isn't it?What Islam is offering, if you choose to go along with the Muslim scientists, is that all of what we are discovering and coming up with in the most highly advanced and sophisticated laboratories on earth, is that all of this was mentioned in the teachings of their Quran and sayings of Mohamed. Hard to believe? Yeah.
"In light of recent discoveries and lack of any other scientific evidences it would seem that at least certain species of life have no pre-existing form or status to have evolved from. Therefore, we would have to concede, at least in some instances, there appears to be some source of intellegent design." Where is this quote from? I cannot find anything on the web that corresponds to this. I doubt if many are saying this, since it is an argument from silence, and it relies on a "God of the Gaps". Surely the God of Creation must be behind everything, not just the bits we can't explain, in which case He is the God of Evolution as well. Just because we don't understand it, doesn't mean that it isn't true.Judaism may be "out of the running" for being the major "world religion", but it is wrong to say that you cannot become a Jew. Proselytes do exist and they are adding to the numbers of Judaism, albeit not significantly.
