Beautiful Wonder of the World

This was actually sent to me through one of those forwarded e-mails I always get from my cousin. When I first read it, I thought it was impossible. But since they also included a scientific explanation to it and believing in the treasures Allah s.w.t. hid for us to learn and explore in the crevice of this world, I accepted the beauty of this existence. I only wish, if I am not so afraid of the idea to begin with, is to dive down here and see this miracle with my own eyes.

Look at the photo above and ask yourself if there is anything weird about it. It sure looks like an ordinary cave but, think again. This is the passageway to Cenote Angelita cave in Mexico. The dive is a miracle in itself. Why? Because as you dive to the floor of the water-filled cave, deeper than 30 meters it is fresh water and deeper than 60 meters, the water is salty.

Then, some meters away before reaching the floor of the cave, you will see a river underneath, with trees coming out from the ground and leaves floating on some liquid level. Now yes, with your eyes it looks like a river but where the leaves float, there's actually a layer of hydrogen sulphide underneath. In the lab, hydrogen sulphide is very poisonous and flammable, which often is a result of bacterial breakdown in organic matter (in the absence of oxygen). So yeah, make sure you keep that mask on.

At this sort of wonder, how can we doubt the existence of a Greater Power?

مَرَجَ الْبَحْرَيْنِ يَلْتَقِيَانِ
Surah Ar-Rahman 55:19 He sent forth the two great bodies of water (one palatable and sweet and the other saltish and bitter); they meet (each other).
بَيْنَهُمَا بَرْزَخٌ لا يَبْغِيَانِ
Surah Ar-Rahman 55:20 (Yet) there is a barrier (and inviolable obstruction) between them that they do not transgress (25:53).
