For researchers, while the things in the universe are eye-openers, the verse of the Qur'an are eye-openers literally. That is, both of them aim to discover God-given potential in humans. Both the references of nature and revelation aim to maximize humans cognitive faculties and finally to bring necessary behaviour to life. It is important for humans to react with these references. Othervise, the target is missed. Therefore, we must make an effort to decode both the systems of the universe and the Qur'an. Because both systems open for those who interact with it. According to Qur'an while revelation is set of knowledge telling the truth, what humans make out of it is a set of relative truth. This can not be accepted as necessarily true. Otherwise the Qur'an and what is understood from it become isomorph and this means that information loss which make comprehension possible is zero. This is impossible to happen. The same thing is true for science aiming at conceptual representation of the things in nature.
