Pendahuluan

Assalamualaikum dan salam sejahtera. Kali ini tim Mukjizat Saintifik akan membicarakan tentang bentuk mukjizat baru dalam Al-Quran untuk manusia di zaman ini, zaman sains dan teknologi. Kita akan mulakan dengan topik lautan dan kegelapan lautan.

Perbincangan adalah berkenaan ayat Al-Quran yang memberitahu kita tentang fenomena dasar laut yang bermula selepas 200 meter. Sememangnya mustahil untuk manusia sampai kepada kedalaman tersebut tanpa bantuan peralatan moden.


Bagi kebanyakan manusia, lautan merupakan satu alam misteri sehinggalah Kurun ke-18 Masihi. Ia berikutan kepercayaan-kepercayaan karut serta dongeng-dongeng yang berkaitan dengan lautan telah merajai tamadun-tamadun lama. Sebagai contoh, orang-orang Rom mempercayai bahawa puncak-puncak ombak adalah kuda-kuda putih yang menarik kereta Dewa Neptun.

Mereka mempercayai kewujudan ikan-ikan penyedut yang mempunyai kesan ajaib untuk menghentikan kapal-kapal. Orang-orang Greek juga mempunyai kepercayaan-kepercayaan seperti ini, sebagai contoh, pelayar-pelayar mereka mempercayai bahawa punca pusaran-pusaran laut disebabkan kewujudan makhluk yang mereka namakan 'Charybdis' yang menyedut air kemudian menghembuskannya.



Dalam keadaan manusia yang mempunyai kepercayaan khurafat seperti ini, Al-Quran telah diturunkan kepada Nabi Muhammad S.A.W menceritakan tentang fakta-fakta yang berkaitan dengan lautan.

Charybdis

Charybdis , in Greek mythology, a female monster. Because she stole Hercules' cattle, Zeus hurled her into the sea. There she lay under rocks across from Scylla and sucked in and spewed out huge amounts of water, creating a whirlpool.

in Greek mythology, two immortal and irresistible monsters who beset the narrow waters traversed by the hero Odysseus in his wanderings (later localized in the Strait of Messina). Scylla was a supernatural creature, with 12 feet and 6 heads on long, snaky necks, each head having a triple row of sharklike teeth, while her loins were girt with the heads of baying dogs. From her lair in a cave she devoured whatever ventured within reach, including six of Odysseus' companions. She was sometimes said to have been originally human in appearance but transformed out of jealousy through the witchcraft of Circe or Amphitrite into her fearful shape. She was sometimes confused with the Scylla who betrayed her father, King Nisus of Megara, out of love for Minos, king of Crete.

Charybdis, who lurked under a fig tree a bowshot away on the opposite shore, drank down and belched forth the waters thrice a day and was fatal to shipping. Her character was most likely the personification of a whirlpool. The shipwrecked Odysseus barely escaped her clutches by clinging to a tree until the improvised raft that she swallowed floated to the surface again after many hours. Scylla was often rationalized in antiquity as a rock or reef. Both gave poetic expression to the dangers confronting Greek mariners when they first ventured into the uncharted waters of the western Mediterranean.
