Atheism Delusion Ch. 1: Turtles All They Way Down (Introduction)

The messengers of Heaven have always been opposed by the “men of religion” who profit from religion in their time. When will people pay attention so they do not fall into the same trap again?!

Giordano Bruno and Galileo Galilei

Giordano Bruno (1548-1600) was an Italian philosopher. He believed that the earth spins around the sun, and he promulgated the Copernican model of the earth’s spin. Bruno was imprisoned by the men of religion of the Christian Church. They then cut his tongue, tortured, and killed him for saying that the earth spins around the sun, whereas the men of the Church believed that the sun and planets spin around the earth.

Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was a professor of mathematics at the University of Pisa. At the start of the seventeenth century, he observed the sky with a telescope he had made himself, and discovered that the earth spins around the sun. However, the Catholic Church considered it merely a theory, in opposition to the Bible. They prosecuted Galileo for heresy, the charge invariably brought against anyone who opposes the Church. At first they imprisoned him, and then he was placed under house arrest and forbidden from teaching or giving lectures. His books were banned and he died in his house, persecuted by the men of religion, the geniuses who knew everything, who knew very well that the earth does not spin, ever! Would any Christian of that time have believed that Galileo, a heretic according to the Church, was more knowledgeable than the Christian scholars of religion who own the magical theological equation that no one can understand, which says: God is three distinct persons, each one an absolute deity, one dispatching the others, yet they are one?! They have convinced more than a billion Christians of it, even though the falsehood of this nonsensical magical theological equation is as unmistakable as 1 + 1 = 2! So why wouldn’t they be able to convince the Christians for hundreds of years that the claim of a very insignificant “heretic” like Galileo—who says that the earth spins—is false as well?!

In the end, the Church officially apologized to Galileo, but this was hundreds of years after his death, and only after the earth’s spin became a fact known to everyone. So before its followers deserted it, the Church finally became convinced, albeit unwillingly, that the earth spins.

In the twentieth century, the Catholic Church apologized to Galileo and acquitted him of his great crime, the crime of saying: “Indeed, the earth spins.”

Nearly four centuries later, after all is said and done, Galileo is a criminal acquitted of his crime—saying that the earth spins around the sun! Today he is no longer a heretic, and according to the Church, his statements are no longer heretical! And Giordano Bruno was killed for speaking the truth, so the Church is a murderer that sheds innocent blood! The inevitable conclusion is that the real heresy is the statements of the church that contradicted Galileo’s. Therefore, it is actually the Church that has been the heretic for nearly four centuries.

The question to the Christians of the world today is this: is it possible that your Church is also being heretical as far as the divinity of Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the Father, and the notion that they are three persons, especially given that there were Christians who objected to it? And is it possible that one day you will discover that Saint Arius, deemed a heretic by the Church for denying the absolute divinity of Jesus Christ, was not really a heretic? Will it then become unmistakable to you that the Church which fought Arius is actually the heretic, just as it was with Bruno and Galileo?!

I fear that the day to fix this or even to have a chance to fix it may arrive far too late. Shouldn’t each Christian search for the truth while he still lives? Search for yourself instead of following the opinion of the Church, which by its own admission has been proven to be the heretic in the case of Galileo, for almost four centuries.

And like a shepherd who takes his sheep out to graze at sunset when the other shepherds have already returned, in the prominent Wahhabi scholars of the second half of the twentieth century, we find an extraordinary story that recalls the lesson of Galileo. I doubt they knew anything about him, for if they did, they would have accused him of being the greatest idol worshipper because he contradicts them by saying that the earth spins. Their story can be summarized with a few religious rulings that reflect complete ignorance. Despite man going up to the moon in the twentieth century, and astronauts returning with images of a spinning earth, to the Wahhabi scholars it was clear, the earth does not spin, ever!

Their religious rulings are as follows:

A question for Muhammad Ibn Uthaymeen:

May God bless you. This is a question from listener Ibtissam Muhammad Ahmed who is from Al-Anbar, Iraq. She asks, “What is the meaning of God’s words: {And you see the mountains, thinking them rigid, while they will pass as the passing of clouds. [It is] the work of God, who perfected all things} [Quran Chapter “The Ant” 27:88]. Is this verse evidence of the earth’s spin?”

Sheikh Ibn Uthaymeen’s response: [W]e say that the theory of night and day alternating due to the earth spinning around the sun is invalid because it contradicts the literal meaning of the Quran. . . . Moreover, it is proven that the Prophet [Muhammad] pbuh said to Abu Thar (may God be pleased with him) at sunset: “Do you know where the sun goes?” Abu Thar said, “God and His Messenger know best.” He said, “It goes and prostrates beneath the Throne.” This narration gives the proof that it is the one that moves around the earth, because of the words: “Do you know where the sun goes?”

In addition to that, he said in the mentioned account: “That is, if it is given permission. If it is not, then it will be told, ‘Return to wherever you want,’ so it will rise from its setting place.” This is evidence that the sun is the one spinning (turning) around the earth. And this is what every believer must believe according to the literal meaning of the words of their All-Knowing Lord, without considering these rotten theories that time will turn on and bury, just as it buried other worn-out theories. This is what we believe regarding this matter . . . What is important regarding this matter is that we must believe that the sun spins around the earth, and that the alternation of night and day is not caused by the earth’s spin, but rather it is brought about by the sun spinning around the earth instead ( 2004. Arabic source, translated).

Look at Ibn Uthaymeen in the twentieth century saying that the earth spinning, or turning around the sun, is just a rotten theory that time will turn on and bury, but in the end, time turned on Ibn Uthaymeen, and rotted and buried him. Today, everyone except the unfortunate ones exploited by Ibn Uthaymeen and the likes of him knows that the earth spins around the sun. Sadly though, some of them have studied physics, and they still believe that the earth does not spin!

Abdul Aziz Ibn Abdullah Ibn Baz said the same thing as Ibn Uthaymeen:

I also confirmed the article with some quotes from the scholar Ibn Al-Qayyim (may Allah [God] be Merciful to him) that give evidence to prove that the earth is round. As for the spinning of the earth, I have denied this and explained the evidence that confirm its falsehood, but I did not declare those who believe that it does to be Kafirs [disbelievers], but I do so for those who say that the sun is static and does not move. This is because saying so contradicts the explicit texts in the Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah, which confirm that the sun and the moon run on their courses ( 1977).

It is clear that by saying the sun spins, Ibn Baz is trying to say that it spins around the earth like the moon does, as he believes that the earth is fixed and does not spin. If that were the case, there would be no way for night and day to occur unless the sun were to spin around the earth.

Whoever follows these people and shares their beliefs should reconsider. They said that the theory of the earth spinning around the sun is rotten and false, but it has now been made clear for you that it is their statements and beliefs that are rotten. So will you not reconsider before it is too late? Perhaps their statement about the vicegerency of God on His earth after Muhammad (the Messenger of God pbuhap) being false is just like their statement that the earth does not spin around the sun. The earth that Ibn Uthaymeen, Ibn Baz, and all the Wahhabi scholars have said doesn’t turn, turns. Beware, for on the Day of Resurrection, regret no longer benefits, and you might discover that the vicegerency of God on His earth after the Messenger Muhammad pbuhap is true, and that what Ibn Uthaymeen and Ibn Baz said about it is false, just like how they got it backwards when they said the sun turns around the earth:

What is important regarding this matter is that we must believe that the sun spins around the earth, and that the alternation of night and day is not caused by the earth’s spin, but rather it is brought about by the sun spinning around the earth instead.

As for those of you who follow people like them, may God reform your condition.

Beware, perhaps they have presented religion backwards for you as well, just as they did with the earth and the sun.

Here I will conclude the discussion of Galileo, the earth’s spin, and the Christian and Wahhabi men of religion. I simply ask the reader to keep this lesson in mind when we discuss their opinion of evolution.
