  1. Salam all, so I went to this (Medical) anthropology class for the first day...I chose it as an elective...and thought it would be interesting. I had not taken an anthro class before so I expected it to be interesting and cover more of the social aspects to health and wellness, etc. Anyway, the professor turns out to be a hardcore evolutionist. She makes claims like the earth is EXACTLY 4 million years old...that humans were originally apes - with whom we 'share 95 % of DNA'. The prof also said that 500 000yrs ago humans were hunched back and that it has been only 100 000yrs since we've been walking upright lol. Oh also that humans were roaming the earth naked about a million years ago and clothes were a relatively recent invention (in anthropological terms). Honestly, I was just awe-struck while at the same time laughing hysterically at these 'scientific facts' ...I mean how can reasonable people believe such - pardon my french - BS? What makes anthropologists (and biologists for that matter) so certain of when our Earth began, who we 'descended' from and how we've 'evolved'. And, more importantly, with such beliefs can Science and Islam be reconciled in the West ?..because I don't see how concepts like the soul, the creation of Adam, etc would fit into the scientific discourse of our times. DISCUSS!

  5. 1) You've got a coolio avatar.

    2.) Homie G, awesome username

  6. The people. Really, I've travelled around the world, and there are very few people as friendly as Canadians. Also, hassle-free, and less complicated. The people are way more care free...having travelled to germany, just to find the airport exit, you have to go up and down stairs, through halls, down escalators, and even then you're bound to get lost (and people speak very little English!!) In Frankfurt, I was speaking to a german lady from Dusseldorf who had been living in Canada for a number of years and we were talking about this...she's so happy to have moved to Canada where the people are more laid back and friendly, and life in general is less complicated.

    I completely agree that we are not producing enough leaders, and, when we do, it's usually people who compromise their faith in the process. So, some people may conclude that it's not worthy to pursue positions of power because it can lead to corruption. That is understandable to an extent, but it is definitely not empowering. We need more Muslims who care about municipal, provincial, as well as national politics. Look at how big of an uproar international events cause, and yet we're not even involved or conscious on a local level. It all starts small...I think our first step should be strengthen our iman, and then ...judging from each of our talents try to contribute positively in the best way that can help our communities. For me, it would be teaching at the high school/uni level, or doing something related to politics, policy making. And whatever career path one chooses, s/he should always look to give back to their community and look beyond his/her own, personal pursuits...if we, as Muslims in the West, don't have this sense of common purpose, there is very little we can achieve as a community.
