I'd say that Islam is the only truly scientific religion and what I mean when I say that we're not talking about the conclusions of science or the technological sort of gadgetry or inventions of science, we're talking about the method how science is supposed to work, you know how research is supposed to work, you're not supposed to develop your conclusions first, and then go out and research and find your data that verifies your conclusions. That's backwards, right? You're cooking the books, okay? You're supposed to maybe have a very, very loose hypothesis, but you're supposed to conduct experiments, you're supposed to get the evidence in the data and then see where it leads.

That's real research, not just cooking the books, that's actually putting the religion in the service of your ego and your next
