Why only humans are different than the rest of animals in terms of thinking, talking
and the way of living, no animal can be compared to humans?
Why we can't even see animals in midway between humans and animals in

different kind of birds, but why humans are unique?
I read the Quran, Gospel, Tora and i am reading the Avesta, and doing research about the Vedas. In the Quran there is are verses about science which i wonder how they could be written 1400 years ago. These verses are being proved to be true in just the last 200 years.

The Jews are unbelievers according to Quran because, among other things, they twisted the words in the Torah to better fit their needs.
I understand that that is their permanent crime, and another is that they mocked Mohammad and his teachings.
But this complicates the words unbeliever to me. At some point in the Quran it seemed the only thing necessary for one to be a believer is to believe in God (and there is only one god; Allah). Also one would have to be righteous. [There was a third...
Looks like Steven Hawking's last book "Brief Answers to Big Questions," is gaining some media attention of late.
He writes about the existence of God...
Black holes, like the universe before the Big Bang, condense into a singularity. In this ultra-packed point of mass, gravity is so strong that it distorts time as well as light and space. Simply put, in the depths of a black hole, time does not exist.
Because the universe also began as a singularity, time itself could not have existed...
