Scientists now discuss the "Helical Vortex" model of the universe. The concept is - 'The sun is not just moving around in circles as once thought. Rather, it is turning on its own but moving in a straight line toward a destination. The planets around it are actually being pulled along for the ride so to speak.
A very interesting concept and presentation, sure to bring new thoughts to an older notion. And most likely to bring along a few opponents to the theory as well. After all, they opposed Newton on his theory of gravity, as they opposed Columbus on the theory of the earth being round - and many other theories of scientists throughout the centuries of our time.
But it is certainly an interesting commentary and thought provoking concept.
Naturally, Muslims will want to say - "It confirms what we find in Surah Yaa Seen in the Quran. Chapter 36, verse 38 says (translation of meaning from the Arabic):
And the sun runs [on course] toward its stopping point. That is the determination of the Exalted in Might, the Knowing."
[Chapter 36, verse 38]
Enjoy and share with others for a really interesting discussion!
