|Introduction||My name is Mohammed. I used to be a devout Muslim who never doubted the truth and superiority of Islam. On 15/10/2006, I came across a scientific discovery that I couldn't fit within my belief system. I tried really hard to do so, but in the end found it irreconcilable with Islam. I then asked myself a very critical but rational question: What if Islam is wrong? In fact, I had never asked myself this question before. It cut a fine slit in the thick black veil of superstitions and pseudo-science which surrounded my mind for more than three decades. Through that slit I had my first glimpse of the real uncensored world. The intimacy was immediate and the temptation to see more was inevitable. Since then, the slit has progressively widened and my understanding of the world is thriving and evolving accordingly.|

If you could peer far enough into the night sky, you'd see a star in any direction you looked. When would you sleep?
It is hard to get a clear night sky in Manchester but if I get one I will definitely take the opportunity to enjoy the magnificent scene of the universe, though, when the sun rises, I will sleep the rest of the day.
