Quran on Big Bang and String Theory | Ep 1

The Quran's verse 21:30 is a wonder, both in its poetic symmetry and in its scientific accuracy. It describes both the origins of the universe from the big bang and how life on earth originated from water and is dependent on it.

This post focuses on the creation of the universe and suggests the possibility that string theory, a new way of looking at sub-atomic particles, may explain why God used words related to threading and unthreading of a single object in describing the universe's origins.
