What kind of scientific evidence could override the apparent meaning of the text, i.e., Quran and hadith. This is a foundational question that virtually no one has addressed because the scholars who are qualified enough to originate principles of tafsir of this nature are typically not authoritative in the sciences and vice versa.

In Part 3, we interrogated Genealogical Continuity (GC) in order to uncover its metaphysical underpinnings. We determined that GC is not falsifiable. Nothing in the fossil record or historical records more generally could be interpreted by scientists as evidence of a miraculous event such as the “creation of man.” This is because it is axiomatic

In Part 2, we discussed falsifiability as a primary characteristic distinguishing science from metaphysics. The question, now, is whether we should understand Genealogical Continuity (GC), i.e., common descent, as falsifiable and, hence, scientific. The best way to see how GC is not falsifiable and, hence, is metaphysical is to consider what empirical state of affairs

In Part 1, we discussed how the theory of common descent and Genealogical Continuity (GC) originated well before the advent of science as we know it. Admittedly, the fact that GC predates science does not by itself establish that GC is metaphysical and a-scientific. However, the following considerations prove just that. Popperian Falsifiability First of

Opponents of Creationism often argue that Creationism is pure metaphysical dogma whereas the evolutionary account of the origins of species is based on scientific fact. This charge against Creationism, however, obscures important distinctions. As we discussed in this post, Evolution is composed of two separate theories: Genealogical Continuity (GC) and Natural Selection (NS). GC is

How much of Evolution can Muslims accept? Are there ways to reconcile theology and Evolution? Why do theists have such a big problem with Darwinism?
