I do know that I will always be an American. My early years had a huge impact on my life, and America will always be my country.

I recently met a new Muslim sister who said that all the reasons given to her for the existence of God did not satisfy her until she read/heard the scientific proofs of God's existence in the Quran. How could some of this information be available over fourteen hundred years ago? How could Muhammad, an illiterate man have known these?
