The Signs in the elaborate nature

"Sometimes we forget that, no matter how elaborate the material world has become, nature must be more elaborate since the material world is a sieved-out part of it." Christopher Potter said in his book - You Are Here.

Yes, indeed man always forget. We are so caught up in our 'advance' gadgets and capabilities. The iPhones and the LCD TV or images that can appear out of nowhere (holograms), and our voices being heard thousands of miles away without a single wire attached (handphone). The very very very expensive and very bulky machinery that takes us out to... not Venus, not Jupiter, and definitely not out of our Solar System - just our moon.

We are very proud of these advancements, some of us think, man can conquer all. But scientists, as mentioned before, do realise, that there is still much much much much more that we don't know and we cannot achieve, though they are still trying to achieve just a teeny weeny bit more.

As for the common people like us.. we think, that all this is a LOT for man to be able to do, that some of us feel proud. And we think God and religion is quite backwards. We forget, that nature is what God created. And for us to be able to achieve all this - it has to come from God also, from God's creations, the nature - which men are still struggling to understand.

So we should take a step back and ponder and wonder in awe, at the elaborate workings of nature, God's wisdom and His powers in all of these. And I quote this again, one of my favourite verses from the Quran:

"Behold! In the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of night and day - there are indeed Signs for men of understanding." Ali Imran 3:190
