I said the shahada yesterday. For most of my life, I've considered myself an atheist, but I've always been searching. Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, I've read as much about cosmology and physics, the beginning and end of the Universe as I could. These questions that science seeks to answere, where do we come from, where are we going, are the same ones that religion strives to provide answers for. I believe they are striving towards the same goal. That there are many parallel paths that lead to the knowledge and recognition of one, undivided spirit.
The case of Tarek Mehanna is what inspired me to take the jump. I've been reading and researching as many different holy scriptures as I can, and none spoke to me like the Qur'an. Its beauty, the way it flows, its uplifting progressive message, scientific literacy, talking of an atom's weight in the 6th century is no mean feat.
So this is not really a question, just an introduction.
My name is Zackary. It means God Has Remembered.
