Significance of Adam’s nafs
During meiosis biomemetic changes generally occur through a process called “crossing over” in which segments of non-sister chromatids of a homologous pair of homologous dyads are exchanged (Figure 3b). This swapping of chromosome portions leads to alteration of bioinformation content in the resulting chromosome. The ‘crossing over’, as any other bioprocess, is a programmed phenomenon as otherwise fertile or normal gametes will not be produced. The process is responsible for the production of next generation biosoftware in human species. It is this process that leads to biodiversification in human populations in time and space in a programmed manner. Since scientists do not view this natural process as mechanism designed and programmed to accomplish the divine objective of creating biodiversity. No wonder they consider all such phenomena as ‘errors’ and ‘mistakes’.

An important aspect of major discoveries and inventions is they appear to us as mostly ‘accidental’. That is, the discovery happens unexpectedly when the scientist is not looking for it. This is suggestive of the programmed nature of release of knowledge at the times determined by Allah. Any number of examples of the so-called ‘accidental’ discoveries can be cited. A few are presented here for sample.
