A follow-up to The Secular Mindset: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p-AeYdFqX2w&t=
And an elaboration of this podcast: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gJHj4BtP9Go

Apologies: there is an abnormal echo on my microphone that I was unable to fix.

Talking points:

1) What are علم and معرفة? ‘Ilm is revelatory, all our sciences (العلوم الشرعية) are absolute knowledge, undoubted, because their source is revelation. ‘Ilm is direct reality.

Marifah is knowing directly, in which it is above the five senses (the five senses can lie to us), Allah is not known by the five senses. Faith is not a feeling.

Colours cannot be known without something bearing them (Imam Mustafa Shatti)

The Theory of Uncertainty (Imam Abu al-Hasan al-Ash'ari)

2) What Does ‘Science’ Mean in the Anglosphere?
- “Laws” based on patterns and regularities (Fann without Usul model)
- Descartes and Chung Chou: "I think therefore I am", and "What am I?" The enigma of Chung Chou
- Europeans only have hypotheses and narratives (the belief that the future will behave like the past), they never reach the core of the matter, they just overturn past theories (societal catastrophism), keep building up and destroying paradigms (Thomas Kuhn, The History of Scientific Revolutions), e.g. beat your kids with paddles to no corporal punishment all,
- The example of Copernicus
- Carbon 14 dating: Direct Knowledge vs Acquired Knowledge
- Evolution (and the connection to Geology)
- Anthropogenic Global Warming
- Vaccines

3) The Existence of the Creation is Contingent:
- Nothing holds intrinsic qualities (Surat al-Anbiyaa 21:69) (Aal Imran 3:45-51
- واجب الوجود وممكن الوجود (Necessary Existence vs. Contingent Existence
- الحلول والتناسخ ("Divine Indwelling" and Reincarnation)
- Muslims who have gone through the 15-year system have taken on the hulool thinking
- Muslims have imbibed Protestant thinking (again, faith is not a feeling), “burning in the chest”
- Brain Use (Prophets and those that came after them)
- I..

With Al-Hajj Abu Ja'far al-Hanbali

1) Why are we discussing this now?

Spokesmen for Islam in the West, after telling us not to reconcile to the world (e.g. don’t go to school, chuck out the TV, consider Hijrah, build a community), are now doubling back and telling us to reconcile to the world, for example:

* talking about Islam and evolution theory, and saying that they want to hear from the theologian who is also a biologist, not just the theologian
* mocking and ridiculing people who do not follow the climate
change agenda, or are skeptical of vaccines
* telling Muslims to follow the Jews and the Catholics

We see that they are making a clear distinction between religion and science? Why? This is the secular mindset.

2) The secular foundation of the US and how this affects the rest of the Anglosphere

3) How the US education system inculcates secularism

4) The Religion vs. Science Dichotomy

* Starting with the first Parliament of the World's Religions in 1893,
as pictured above, through to the hippie era, how the world
changed in 2001 and what has happened since. Many spokesmen
for Islam in the West embraced Islam in the 1960s and 1970s; how were they affected?
