Hi Underpantman, You should read a nice book by the famous French physician Maurice Bucaille entitled "The Bible, The Quran and Science". (You can order it from Amazon). It's interesting for two reasons. You get to learn a little bit about Judaism, Christianity and Islam, the world's three great religions, in the context of science. Even though Islam is now the world's 2nd largest religion, not many people in the US know about it except in a negative light (is projected to overtake Christianity in numbers in about 10 years). You might be surprised about the view of science in Islam (even though the followers have ignored this for centuries), and also about the scientific statements in the Quran (big bang, embryology, all living things made from water etc.). I'm a physicist, neuroscientist and trainee doctor/surgeon myself, and as a Muslim, learning science has really complemented my faith. All the best man!
