I just finished two interesting documentaries aired on the Discovery Channel and the BCC last month. These are no hocus pocus programs going over myth, miracle and magic to explain the unexplainable. These were very scientific and very well documented features going into details and examining biblical stories (also in the Quran) and going over the historical evidence and scientific proof that supports the "plausibility" of such miracles.
The two I watched were Sodom and Gomorrah (قوم لوط) and Exodus. With great deal of detail scientific scrutiny. Taking into account the historical side, scientific side and even the social side. The results were astonishing to say the least
Now, I'm not saying these discoveries are going to make a believer out of everyone. But what they provide in Miracle has some bases in scientific fact, in that sense, Holy books becomes historical testaments on historical events that at least some people saw the hand of God in action. But skeptics who refuse miracles without explanation (like myself) can be satisfied that "God" doesn't just make things happen with no reason. In my view God wouldn't violate the laws of Causality that he himself have created. Or that's what I believe
I understand that Gaza is finally on everyone's mind and conscience, if anyone is interested in following up on live blog feeds on Gaza, here's a quick RSS feed for your convenience..
صحف و جرائد و فضائيّات
تعلو بالصراخ و الهتافات
و بقايا من زكاء نفس
حفرت شلاّلات دمائها
و دموع غدنا
و نقمة على سلامتنا
و عيشنا الاهث
