Christianity and Islam:

Christianity and Islam Judaism are famous as Abrahamic religions because of their common origin through Abraham. Muslims consider Ishmael (Ismā'īl), the first born son of Abraham, to be the "Father of the Arabs" and Abraham's second son, Isaac (Isḥāq), is called "Father of the Hebrews". The story of Abraham and his sons is told in the Book of Genesis and the Quran but with certain differences. Muslims normally refer to Christianity and Islam as "People of the Book", people who follow the same usual teachings in relation to the worship of the One God (Tawhid) as accepted by Abraham.

Growing human intellect we mean increasing the capability of a man to approach a complex problem situation, to gain comprehension to suit his specific needs, and to derive result to problems. Increased capability in this respect is taken to mean a mixture of the following more rapid understanding, better comprehension, the possibility of gaining a useful degree of comprehension in a situation that uncertainly was too complex, faster solutions, better solutions, and the possibility of finding solutions to problems that before seemed insoluble. And by "complex situations" we include the professional problems of diplomats, authorities, social scientists, life scientists, physical scientists, attorneys, designers -- whether the problem situation exists for twenty minutes or twenty years. We do not speak of acquired clever tricks that help in particular situations.

Man's population and gross product are increasing at a considerable rate, but the complexity of his problems grows still faster, and the urgency with which solutions must be found becomes steadily greater in response to the increased rate of activity and the increasingly global nature of that activity. Augmenting Human intellect, in the sense defined above, would warrant full pursuit by an enlightened society if there could be shown a reasonable approach and some plausible benefits.
