A one-stop shop for the latest on Islamic creationism

December 24, 2008

Readers of this blog know of our interest in Islamic creationism and its leading spokesman, Adnan Oktar (pseudonym: Harun Yahya), interviewed here last June. Over at Science and Religion News, Salman Hameed has been posting comprehensive updates to this story including articles by himself and others. Hameed, an astronomer and assistant professor of science and humanities at Hampshire College in Massachusetts, is working on creationism in today’s Islamic world and how Muslims see science and religion.

Hameed’s blog is a kind of one-stop shop for anyone interested in this topic. Since he’s posted several items in recent weeks, here’s a quick index:

Harun Yahya (Mr. Adnan Oktar) is totally right in all his explanations about the evolution deceit and the dark implications of Social Darwinism.

What Europe faced throughout the 20th century was the result of this evil understanding that the world is only available for the strongest who survive and superior races will dominate the inferior ones.

How did Hitlers, Stalins, Mussolinis were bred in this century? Of course through this Darwinist indoctrination.

We are all responsible for removing this racist, elitist, fight oriented ideology from our lives, minds, schools and governments. Otherwise, we should expect new wars, fights, holocausts soon.

If evolution is right the evolution process must be happened till now. If the life form changed from dead things, it must be happened till now. something unlife is changing to life creature.
