Quran Punches Holes in Atheism

Quran Punches Holes in Atheism

 In Quran we read these verses that state some Holy Attributes of Allah: 059.022 God is He, than Whom there is no other god;- Who knows (all things) both secret and open; He, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. 059.023 God is He, than Whom there is no other god;- the Sovereign, the Holy One, the Source of Peace (and Perfection), the Guardian of Faith, the Preserver of Safety, the Exalted in Might, the Irresistible, the Supreme: Glory to God! (High is He) above the partners they attribute to Him. 059.024 He is God, the Creator, the Evolver, Al-Mesawer. To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names: whatever is in the heavens and on earth, doth declare His Praises and Glory: and He is the Exalted in Might, the Wise. One of the stated God’s Holy Attributes in the previous Holy verses of Quran is “Al-Mesawer” or “The Visioner”. This Attribute means the Producer of what is seen or the Caster of scenes in the eyes of His Creatures. Such Attribute summarizes scientific facts in Light, Optics, Anatomy of Eyes and the unknown Secrets of the vision center in brains. It shows also the Miracles of God’s Wisdom, Science, Mercy, Guidance, Providence, Recognition and Will in the Eye-Creation.  

It is known that sun radiates energy in the form of electromagnetic waves. Its peak radiation is in the range of 0.4 – 0.7 µm. Such range is the range that the Creator arranged the vision of the created retina in our visual system to response to the incident electromagnetic radiation from the sun. The colors are our visual system's response to incident electromagnetic radiation. God created cells in our retina that are responsible for color perception to show us the scenes in the way He likes. The human eye has maximum sensitivity and gives an optimum response to light, at the wavelength of 555 nm. This value corresponds also to the peak value of solar radiation as seen in the figure. No wonder why our eyes can see in the day-light as this is what God adapts to His creatures to see in day-light and to have rest in night. The eye’s response to this wavelength, 555 nm, is the green color. Every basic color has a range of wavelengths, which give it gradation. Green extends from pale-green to dark-green but blue extends from light to dark blue and so on. There are certain colors like pink or purple which are not basic colors. These composite colors are formed due to a mixture of certain basic colors, that is, through mixing of visible light wavelengths. The table gives the wavelength of visible light spectrum, divided in color regions, according to retina perception according to the Will of the Creator or Visioner. The wavelength of visible light in meters is mentioned in the table. The unit used is angstrom. One angstrom is 10-10m.
The Visible Light Spectrum
Wavelength (nm)

625 - 740

590 - 625

565 - 590

520 - 565

500 - 520

435 - 500

380 - 435

So; human’s eyes are created to see in day-light colored erected scenes in the scale 1:1. The eye’s anatomy is arranged to see different scenes in such scale and colors according to God’s Will as His attribute “The Visioner” indicates. However; God created other creatures with different criteria for certain wisdom. As you've seen, the human eye can perceive only a specific range of wavelengths of light. Some species of snake are capable of seeing greater wavelengths than humans, including infrared light, which humans can sense only as heat. Snakes have small pit organs that can visually register infrared radiation. These organs are a hundred thousand times more sensitive to infrared than human skin and can detect even the slightest change in a body's temperature. For example, the rattlesnake can locate a warm-blooded animal or human even in pitch darkness, because such creatures radiate off heat waves that the snake can detect-an incredible advantage for any creature hunting at night. Similarly; camel’s ability to see is magnified by a high ratio. The great size of camels necessitates seeing his driver in a greater size. Otherwise; the powerful nature of camel will lead him to reject the human’s authority. Eagles fly at an altitude of thousands of meters, in a manner similar to modern war planes, yet are able to comb the landscape below in staggering detail. The eagle is gifted the ability to detect even the slightest of movements or color changes while in flight. It owes this ability by a very special eye structure. In humans, the portion of the retina with the most acute vision is the fovea centralis, which has the highest concentration of cone cells. Eagles have two foveae, giving them an incredibly sharp sense of sight. Humans have only one fovea in each eye-for binocular, or forward vision. When we look at an object, both our eyes are directed toward the object. This allows our brain to merge both the images to create a sense of depth. The eagle contains a binocular fovea like ours, but also has a fovea for monocular vision that allows each eye to look sideways and see a separate image. So eagles can see both forward and to the side at the same time.40 The eagle has a visual perspective of some 300 degrees, as well as an extra focusing power. Humans change the shape of their lenses to focus. But an eagle can change the shape of both lens and cornea. This gives it extra focusing power. It can also scan a 116-square miles field from an altitude of 4,500 or spot a camouflaged rabbit from 90 meters with ease.To attain this super-sharp vision, an eagle's retinal cells are tinted with special colored oil droplets, increasing the contrast for objects seen against the blue sky or green forest. 

As mentioned before, something else that couldn't possibly have evolved is the visual system. This is reinforced by the flawless nature of an eagle's eye. An eye with two foveae cannot form over time, as a result of coincidences. That second fovea was deliberately created to answer the bird's needs.So why are our eyes not as sharp as an eagle's? If human eyes contained the same features, they'd each be the size of a grapefruit. Moreover, humans don't need to spot a camouflaged rabbit from a kilometer away. This is why God gave humans their present eyes in a most aesthetic form. A jumping spider hunts by securing itself to the branch of a tree with the thread it secretes. Then it throws itself toward an insect flying nearby, catching it in midair. In order to snare its catch, the spider needs to see its prey, and determine the direction and speed at which the target is traveling. Also, of course, it must determine its own speed and the duration of the leap. In order to do all this, the spider needs not only an advanced visual system, but an information processing center to make all the necessary calculations.Jumping spiders have four pairs of eyes, for a total of eight. The front two are the most impressive, perhaps the best eyes one can find in any arthropod. The retina inside the eye can move in three dimensions, enabling the spider to look in all directions and focus on its subject. The other six eyes are positioned around the head, affording 360-degree vision.43 The jumping spider's visual acuity is actually very similar to our own, such that they even perceive images on a television screen. When most animals look at a television, they see only a series of moving dots. But research has indicated that jumping spiders respond to televised pictures of other spiders and insects.The jumping spider's visual system is highly complex and, in some respects, surpasses even a human's. A tiny spider can look in different directions, detect motions, and estimate speed and distance. Of course, the spider never asked for these abilities, nor did it develop them on its own, over time. Everything the spider possesses was given to him by God So; the vision of each creature is arranged by the Will of the “Visioner”.   Did the Miracles in the creation of the vision system of each creature and the Miracle of creating a radiating sun that gives us the ability to see the colored scenes in scale 1:1 were know in Mohamed’s times? Did you see any Holy Book have mentioned this Holy Attribute to the God: “The Visioner”?This is one of the Miracles of the Quran that represents a “Hole in Atheism”.
