If this is not Child Abuse, What is?


No Chance by Chance


Dears
Ignore the galaxies

Forget the universe

Please listen carefully
Let mathematics speak

For an “average sized” single protein
To form by chance
From a soup of amino acids
The probability is:

Not one in a million
Not one in a billion
Not one in a trillion
Not even one in zillion
Not one in zillion… zillion… zillion
Zillion… zillion… zillion

And I don’t even know what zillion is

The probability is:

One in 10ⁿ
(Where n=300 )

In mathematics
If the probability is < one in 10ⁿ
(Where n=150 )

It is accepted as a zero probability


But wait

This is not the end of the story

That is only just one humble protein

If we explore more:
One of the smallest bacteria ever discovered
Has 600 proteins

What about human cell?
Nucleic acids
Carbohydrates
Lipids
Vitamins
Electrolytes
And much much more

Not to mention RNA or DNA

All arranged in specific order

Complex structure

Harmonious function

Intricate proportions

Exquisite design

Don’t you think
Saying such perfection is accidental
Is a little bit OTT
How many chance, upon chance, upon chance

Could “science” rely upon

Or use as an excuse

To explain away the mastery of this mystery, we call Life

“Chance” is not an explanation to how

“Chance” is not an answer to why

 

This is not “chance”

This is BNO

Be in Awe

 

Free Freedom


Life has taught me

The most wonderful thing about it is

All its treasures come free

* * *

Rocks and pebbles

Amazing stones

Mighty trees

 

 

Shining stars

Sky that shelters

The air we breathe

 

 

Hills and mountains

Shores and valleys

Rivers and seas

 

Sand and soil

Snow and rain

Clouds and breeze

 

 

 

Hands that feel

Hearts that dance

Joints and knees

 

 

Flowers and roses

Colours and shades

The eye that sees

 

 

Enchanting sounds

Humming birds

The ear that hears

 

 

Friends and family

Love and joy

The smile that heals

 

 

I also learned that

All its creatures… born free… born free

 

Why is the fight then?

Why oppress? why enslave?

When freedom is for ALL

And ALL is FREE

The Last Encounter with my Atheist Friend


A few day ago, I lost a dear friend, with whom I worked for supporting Palestine and the Palestinian cause.
We also had deep existential discussions about meaning of life, God, faith…etc.

Unfortunately, for many years, he joined the crowd who accused me of “antisemitism”, however about a year ago, he rethought his position and regretted what was done, came many times to visit me despite his very ill-health.

This is my tribute to the good memory of my friend, sharing with the world, our last encounter:

*  *  *
In his hospital bed
He spoke of agony and the torment in his head
“The closest I could describe”, he said
“As if my head is full of chains, entangled and rattling inside
While being pulled in every direction”
.
.
He told me he’s yearning to find some peace
Not through brain-numbing tablets
But the other way, the spiritual way
.
.
“Even though I was an atheist, I never was anti-religion
I always respected people of faith” he whispered
“Sometimes when I used to feel overwhelmed by life
I used to stop by the mosque on the way
Sit there for sometime
Watch people pray
Much love, warmth and peace
I always felt in that place
Calm and uplifted I left
Every time I’ve been”
.
.
Gasping for air
Gasping for life
Gasping for help
Holding on my hand
In utter despair
“I want to feel that peace again”, he said
.
* * *
Did you try praying?” I asked
“Try it out, just say anything that comes to mind
* * *
.
With tear filled eyes, and trembling voice, he said:
“but I don’t know how
I don’t know what to say
I don’t know where to start
I don’t know where to start”
.
* * *
Just say God, help me”, I whispered
* * *
“God help me
God, help me

God, help me…”

He repeated passionately

.
.
Pausing for a moment, he said:
“I feel like a hypocrite
I don’t want to be a hypocrite
 I never called unto God, never believed
I don’t want to be a hypocrite”
* * *
You are not a hypocrite, just say:
“God, IF you are there please help me”
* * *
Tears streaming,  repeating over and over and over again:
 “God if you are there , if you hear me, please help me”
“God, I want to believe, God I want to believe…”
“God, if what am going through is my repay
for the bad things I’ve done in my life, so be it”
“I guess I know why I wasn’t able to  believe
I refused to acknowledge my vulnerabilities
The need for someone greater is a sign of weakness,
I always thought”
.
.
“I know how atheists think
They think that people of faith are weak idiots
Gullible freaks
But how can that be!
When the strongest most intelligent people I ever met;
Were a devout Muslim woman  and a Christian priest”
.

.

Just as I was leaving, saying goodbye

He asked me to write “the prayer I said”

On a piece of paper

I did

“God, IF you are there please help me”

* * *

May your God-yearning soul find its way Home

May it finally dwell in peace
