Throughout the history of the world, the majority of people have believed in God. There seems to be something built in the human mind that makes us want to believe.
Over the last decade some really startling facts have been found that show that children have an innate belief in God. Dr Justin Barrett, a senior researcher at the University of Oxford Centre for Anthropology and Mind, states:
“The preponderance of scientific evidence for the past 10 years or so has shown that a lot more seems to be built into the natural development of children’s minds than we once thought, including a predisposition to see the natural world as designed and purposeful and that some kind of intelligent being is behind that purpose…’
He adds that “If we threw a handful [of children] on an island and they raised themselves…they would believe in God’.. To put it simply, his answer as to why anyone would believe in God is that, our minds are designed to do so . Disbelief in God is something which is unnatural to the human being. Oxford University development psychologist Dr Olivera Petrovich, who is an expert in the Psychology of Religion states that, belief in God develops naturally and that ‘atheism is definitely an acquired position’.
Muslims let not videos like this lead us towards arrogance but instead take the good from them, Atheists this is not to attack you as people but instead to highlight the flaws of your world view and to encourage you to turn towards the truth.
ALLAHU AKBAR (God is Greater)! Brother Haroon Qureshi said; “I was at Hyde park speakers corner today and there was an offensive Christian missionary who was attacking Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). A little boy aged 10 took my chair and started challenging the man while the large crowd gathered around and started cheering on the little boy (Even non Muslims were cheering him on)! Some time later his dad came and was shocked and impressed at what his son was doing! MASHAALLAH!. May Allah give us all confident children who will stand up for the Deen inshallah.
“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah (God “. Quran 3:110
