Understanding the Miracles
Dear Dr Ali
article A course in miracle on In brain
washing? When you wrote (Feel good factor) I agree with you,
that when it comes to religions, people follow religions for
There is deferent between religions and spiritual, Ali I read your
article to the end Please read mine.
I am a person
that is hard to believe in any thing until I have the proof, but I
keep my mind open for any possibility. May be you think I am a
crazy or simple minded. but believe me What I write here is the
heart of the Truth. I was reading a book of Sylvia Browne( Mother
God) She Said that Virgin Mary is The Feminine God that part of
One God(Male and Female)and her Name Azna, Sofia and a lot of name
she is from the beginning, she appear to all nations every nation
has a name for her. I was laughing at the book and skeptical, in
her book said if you ask Virgin Mary for a favor ask for a sign,
ask for roses; she love roses. I said why I am reading illogical
book, then I said Please Virgin Mary, I need your help in so and
so. and give me a sign as a flower or any plant, for curiosity.
and proof, if there is nothing happened, that what she said is
Ali I am
still holding the book and read when
a light brown circle on the clear glass table top on front
me caught my attention, I though it is a dirty spot, when I tried
to clean it with my hand the moment that I was close to the spot
the spot changed to the plant on front of my eyes like drawing on
the computer, by itself .The plant size
around 2", I was shocked I was by myself, every time I
touch it gets bigger with branches and leaf on the branches like
pine needle, I got a goose bumps,
then there is another lady came, and I asked her if she see the
same picture or it is my imagination she saw and asked me what is
this, because she put her finger on it and grow out with branches,
I told her what is happened then my husband came, he is the most
skeptical person on earth, He put his finger on it, it grows out
big, when we remove our finger, it goes back to original size, and
it stayed there until I left the work and disappeared, we didn't
see it the next day. and what I asked Virgin Mary, believe me it
happened. Mr. Sina I swear that it happened with me and
three people witness that. Can you explain this than the power of
Miracles by God, he communicate with us in different way. I hope
you believe Me.
Human mind is still
an enigma. There are things that we do not understand and there are things
that we reject as illogical. I do not deny that there are
realities unknown to us. For example a few years ago across the
world Hindus reported that the statute of Ganesh was drinking milk. This
phenomenon was filmed and was shown in the news by several news agencies. A few
months ago there was a similar case of Shiva drinking milk in
Canada. I saw that on the news. The statute was not bigger than three inches,
but it had gobbled liters of milk spoon by spoon. It was on CBC News and there was no
spill. So what is the explanation of that? Am I to believe that the legend
behind the Ganesh and Shiva are true? Does this signify that really there
existed a boy whose father chopped his head and then regretting what he
had done transplanted on this child's headless body an elephant head and
the boy continued to live and these were gods? The answer is no.
What about the
strange phenomenon that you think you and your husband saw? Does that mean
that Mary is indeed a holy personage? The answer is no. Why not? Because,
Mary was not even a Christian! Mary never believed in Jesus. If Mary were
a virgin, if she really had seen the Holy Spirit telling her she is going
to give birth to the Messiah, as the Bible claims, she would have been the
first to believe in her son. But she didnít.
Look what Jesus said
Jesus' Mother and
46While Jesus was still talking to the
crowd, his mother and brothers stood outside, wanting to speak to him. 47Someone
told him, "Your mother and brothers are standing outside, wanting to
speak to you."
48He replied to him, "Who is my mother, and who are my
brothers?" 49Pointing to his disciples, he said,
"Here are my mother and my brothers. 50For whoever does
the will of my Father in heaven is my brother and sister and mother."
The same story is
repeated in Mark 3:31-35
From the above verses
we can clearly deduce that at least until Jesus was alive, her mother
remained an unbeliever. How can a person who gave a virgin birth and met the
Holy Spirit telling her about her miraculous pregnancy not know her son is
There are so many
other evidences from the NT with which I could prove to you that Christianity
has no divine source. Now that does not mean that I do not like Christianity. I
love Christianity. I wish Islam was one tenth as good as Christianity.
like all other religions is a
fable, but it is a lovely one. I hope all the Muslims become Christians.
But what you saw is not the proof that Mary was a divine being.
So, you ask, ďThen
what is the explanation? What should I make of my own experience which was
real?Ē Let us say that your experience was real and not mental. If that
is the case then it falls within the same definition of milk-drinking
Ganesh and Shiva.
What is the
explanation to all these strange phenomena? I donít know! But I can
guess. In future we may eventually find an answer to all these strange
phenomena. My guess is that mind is capable of affecting the matter.
Actually mind and matter are essentially of the same substance.
I discussed this in my debate with the materialists so I am not going
to repeat it. Is it possible that our collective subconscious create the
illusion of something real? Yes it is possible! At a subatomic level,
particles occur do not obey the Newtonian laws of physics or the
Einsteinís theory of relativity. A particle can be in two places at the
same time. It can be in one place before arriving there. These theories
seem absurd but this is what the physicists are telling us. Thought is a
wave, made of subatomic particles. In other words thought is made of
matter. So it is possible that your thought
was materialized. I do not know how to explain what you saw or
the Ganish and Shiva drinking milk, nor do I understand them.
As I said, people
attribute miracles even to Khomeniís dead cadaver. Am I to believe that
this monster, mass murderer was some sort of saint? Yet there are people
who swear by his miracles. What they experienced, of course, had nothing
to do with Khomeini. Likewise the disappearance of milk has nothing to do
with Ganish and Shiva; and what you saw had nothing to do with Mary.
Now let us say what
you and your husband saw was real. I saw Ganesh and Shiva drinking milk
and it was very obvious this was happening. The whole country saw that. No
foul play was involved. The newsman from CBC lifted up the little statute
and showed it was not connected to any tubes and the milk was simply
disappearing in thin air. What this shows is that there is a reality of
which we humans are unaware.
I had a big fight
with the materialists, who like the religious fanatics, deny anything that
they do not understand. I am not a materialist. I acknowledge that the
universe that we know is only a fraction of the universe that we do not
know. All I am saying is, let us not jump into conclusions. Do not try to
explain and interpret what you do not understand nor go to other extreme
and deny what science cannot define. And here is where I part from
religionists as well as from materialists. I consider myself a
rationalist, a skeptic. I am not a believer. I do neither believe in
religion nor do I believe in the limited science that we have discovered.
But I trust the scientific method, because the scientific method is based
on doubt. In science you are never certain about anything and you do not
try to explain things you do not understand.
