What information is in a SEED?


DNA Technology

Rice gnome

Information capacity

= 466 million A/T/G/C

= 466*2/8 MB

= 116.5 MB.

Stored in nucleus

= 2.5 µm radius

= 65.45 µm3

Pen Drive

Size of a cell:

= 0.025X0.03 µm3

Required space for 116.5 MB

= 733 X103 µm3

Space ratio for storing 116.5 MB:

  • Rice cell nucleus is 11 thousand times more compact than flash memory

  • Human nucleus has 1.6GB information and is 1.57 lakhs time more compact than Flash memory of similar capacity

  • We have not considered other functionalities of a Nucleus !

    • E.g., a nucleus can reproduce itself autonomously

Is it wise to say that Man created Flash memorywhileNUCLEUS is created in a natural/random process without a Creator


Where is the Creator?

Where is the owner of this thing?

The fish need to know what pond is first?

Where do we live? A simple view

Solar System

Milkyway Galaxy


Universe !!



Galaxy Cluster


Planetary system



  • Farthest space probe.

  • Speed: about 17km/s

  • Distance from earth, as on May, 2008:

    • 16 billion km

    • 14 light hour

Milkyway Galaxy

How large is the Universe?

Ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Light_year


  • What we see in the night sky is the past – 1 year to 1 million year old picture of the visible universe!

  • The Visible Universe is a well designed system in perfect harmony.

    • Cosmic objects are orbiting/moving in their own path.

    • In a regular manner

    • In a fixed speed

  • Creator created all these from nothing (Big Bang)

  • Creator is not within His creation.

  • The fish now atleast knows that the thing he lives in is a Pond !

Is death the end?

  • What is death?

    • NDE: clinically dead then comes back to life

    • Coma: clinically alive but has no consciousness for long time.

    • So scientifically we don’t understand death!

  • Death is the end of our body.

  • What about our soul, the element that is constantly speaking within us!

    • How much do we know about the soul?

    • Can we prove that the soul also dies?

  • Hence, we don’t understand death neither we can prove it to be the end.

  • If death were the end then there is no meaning of life!

    • Why are we doing all the hard work?

    • Why are we honest then? Whey do we build?

    • Go enjoy the life! Get money in whatever means you can.

    • Why do we take children? They become just burden. Look at the West.

Science & Religion a simple view

  • What is science?

    • Systematic knowledge of what we can comprehend

    • Shows what we don’t know as well – the frontier

    • Rejects anything that is not provable though it exists

Facts : proven knowledge of what we can comprehend. E.g. Newton’s law of motion.


Hypothesis/Theory: not proven or fully understood; e.g. Darwin’s theory, Cancer research

Belief: we feel but can not explain with our current knowledge; e.g. Soul, Life, Death

Science without religion is lame, religion without science is blind.

Book from

Creator ?



A Book from the Creator?

  • Expected properties of such a Book:

    • Immense intelligence of the Creator should be reflected.

    • His book should be unparallel in every aspect.

    • There should be no errors (syntactical & semantically).

    • His book should provide guidance for mankind.

  • Religious scriptures are believed to be from the Creator.

  • The one we investigate here is the Quran.

Some Facts about Quran

  • Quran was revealed, part by part in 22.5 years, 1400 years ago in Arabic.

  • Entire Quran was memorized by the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and many of his companions before it was compiled as a book.

  • Today about 10 million people bear the entire Quran in memory.

  • Some characteristics:

    • It is poetic / rhythmic & easy for memorization

    • It prescribes a way of life in simple, straight forward manner.

      • The Quran is composed of about 2000 different root words.

    • About 1000 verse in Quran mentions scientific facts many of which are discovered in last 100 years.

    • It has some integrated error-checking mechanisms.

Numerical Compositions in Quran

Noisy Transmission Line



  • In verse 16 to 31 of Sura 74, it has been mentioned that

    • “… he had been stubborn to My revelations… he turned away in pride and said: This is nothing else than magic from old; This is nothing else than speech of mortal man. Soon will I cast him into Hell-Fire! … Over it are nineteen. And I have set none but angels as Guardians of the Fire; and I have fixed their number only as a trial for Unbelievers,- in order that the People of the Book may arrive at certainty, and the Believers may increase in Faith,- and that no doubts may be left for the People of the Book and the Believers, and that those in whose hearts is a disease and the Unbelievers may say, "What symbol doth Allah intend by this?“ … “








Same if there was no

error in transmission

Numerical Compositions in Quran

  • There are many types of 19-based encoding in Quran

  • The full encoding is not known yet

  • We present example of three encoding types here:

    • Book wide checksum of 19

    • Chapter wide checksum of 19

    • Semantic reflection in word repetition

Example of Book wide 19-checksum

  • This signature exhibits following properties:

    • It has exactly 19 letters

    • It occurs in the entire Book 114 (= 19X6) times

    • Occurrence of each word in the entire book :

      • ISM : occurs 19 times

      • ALLAH : occurs 2698 (19 X 142) times

      • AR-RAHMAN: occurs 57 (19 X 3) times

      • AR-RAHYM: occurs 114 (19 X 6) times

Chapter wide checksum

  • In Quran, many chapter starts with standalone letters.

  • Repetition of these letters in corresponding chapter are multiple of 19.

  • Example:

    • Sura 50. has letter ق 57 (19X3) times in it

    • Sura 36. has letter ى 237 time and س 48 times; a total of

      285 (19X15) times

Semantic Reflection in Word Repetition

  • Repetition count of some words and their antonyms :

There are many more …


  • We have discussed the following questions:

    • Is there any Creator ?

    • Is Death the end ?

    • Is there any message from the Creator ?


Is Death

the end ?
