Dear yeezevee, it is because I am trying to solve the problem you have pointed out that I am working on the quran because without making proper sense of the quranic text it is not possible to solve this puzzle.
The solution is very simple that if it could be shown that the quran is a sensible book in actual fact then people will have no reason to not to accept it as such. If a 1500 years old book is telling us things the way they should be which even today we fail to realise then this book has to be something out of the ordinary.
Statements in this book are based on various philosophies eg science, history, society, politics, economics and cultures etc etc. A book that offers a program for well being of mankind along with goals and guidelines for organising and regulating a human community properly.
What more do we need to show that this book is not a product of human beings who cannot see beyond their own noses.
So it is a good idea that people study this book in detail rather than ignoring it and keep on suffering painfully for no reason at all.
What we are not paying attention to is the fact that just as we come up with various ideas to fulfil various purpose so we need to look at ways that can prove existence of God and his messengers and scriptures. Since We cannot see God saying or doing anything ourselves that does not mean there is no God but if there are ways that lend strength to the idea than that is proof enough because that is how far we can go. The very same is true about any kind of proof that at the end of the day it is only a matter of probabilities and of more likeliness than unlikeliness.
All our ideas or reasons are based on ideas or reasons and we can only explain whatever evidences are available to us as much as we can to the best of our abilities.
If things were bad then we could argue against then but not if they are good for us. This is why we can oppose ideas and practices that are harmful and destructive for mankind but not those that are good for our well being.
If rulers, mullahs and money lenders etc have hijacked God, scriptures and messengers it is up to us to put them in place. We cannot afford to give up on idea of God, scriptures and messengers just because some people have taken control over some ideas and things.
If we really start challenging harmful and destructive people or anti social elements in human society, we can take back control of things in a very short period of time.
Well that is how I look at things and I am very hopeful about things.
regards and all the best.
