As-Salamu Alaykum Ummah :)

Here's another video for you to check out. It's the 3rd episode in my TID-BITS OF Islam series. If you approve of what I'm doing, please help support the efforts by watching the videos, sharing the videos, and subscribing to the channel. Also, if you have ANY advice, I'm all ears. :)

Many don't know that Islam & SCIENCE coexist in perfect harmony. :)

It depends on the meaning of Science (and God).

"Science" is derived from the Latin word "scientia" which means "knowledge." Specifically, it deals with using reason to observe and study the universe around us with testable hypotheses. A hypothesis presents a possible, testable explanation for observed phenomena in nature, and can be very simple or very complex. If the procedures created to test the hypothesis repeatedly confirms the hypothesis' prediction, then one could logically assume that the hypothesis is a reasonable explanation for the phenomena being studied. If the experiments the hypothesis undergoes to test its validity result in effects that contradict the predictions of the hypothesis, then the hypothesis can reasonably be discarded as an explanation for the observed phenomenon, and another hypothesis needs to be put forth.

That's really the essence of it.
