Scientific proof of God! (Again!)

Here’s another example of a Muslim use of half-understood science to prove the existence of the soul and of God, published in something that is ostensibly a scientific journal. (Thanks to Glenn Branch.)

“Molecular genetic program (genome) contrasted against non-molecular invisible biosoftware in the light of the Quran and the Bible,” by Pallacken Abdul Wahid, claims that “The failure of experiments to produce life through purely chemical means or to restore life to a dead cell would in fact invalidate the molecular biological program (genome) concept. More importantly, the failure would confirm the Scriptural revelation of non-particulate nature of the divine biosoftware and the existence of God.”

Personally, I prefer the way we do things in the US. We have plenty of crank pseudoscience driveling about equivalents of the “divine biosoftware,” but we have found a way to concentrate most of this and confine it to creation-science publications. In the Islamic world, you can find this sort of dreck scattered all over the place, since it’s a lot more mainstream. Most inconvenient.
