In Response To: THE MISSING LINK (Muhammad Rafi)

This does not seem plausible to me. We must remember that fossils are only formed under certain rare circumstances and missing links are inevitable. Every time a missing link is found, some creationists see two missing links! Some sects in Islam say that mankind were in heaven at first, then got banished to earth! In other words, this earth is a punishment! Unfortunately, the Quran is ignored once again:-
20:53 He it is Who has made the earth a cradle for you, and has traced out roads and channels for you therein. And He sends down water from the sky.” And, by this means We bring forth different classes and pairs of plants.
20:54 Eat and raise your cattle. Surely, herein are signs for men and women endowed with reason.
20:55 From the earth We created you, into it We return you and from it We will bring you forth a second time. But he stubbornly rejected the Message.

What may cause confusion in the minds of some is the following:-

2:29 He it is Who has created for you whatever is on earth – all of it. And He has applied His Design to the Cosmos and fashioned it in several ascending heights. He is the Supreme Knower of what all things are destined to be. [11:7, 53:31, 57:1-2. Saba' indicates seven or several]
2:30 (Now is related to you the creation of Adam or mankind, in allegorical terms; when God decided to create humans who would be given free will, and supremacy on earth.) Your Lord announced His Plan to the angels, “Indeed, I am about to place on earth a new creation that will have dominion over it.” They exclaimed, “Will you place on it such creation as will cause disorder therein and shed blood! - But we strive to manifest Your Glory (in the Universe)!” He answered, “Surely, I know what you do not know.”

The “I am about to place on earth a new creation” seems like we dropped out of the sky, but 20:55 leaves no doubt where we came from. Allah created mankind on earth according to the laws of the universe which He Willed before it came to ‘Be’.

Where did the viruses come from? What created them in space? More questions than answers. Life on earth emerged when the planet was cool enough for proteins to be formed; there was an “explosion” of life and some have sort extra terrestrial answers, but this is all conjecture.

Also, Ahadam in Hebrew means ‘from the earth’.
