GREAT BRITAIN, FEBRUARY 17, 2009, INTERVIEW WITH MR. ADNAN OKTAR BY MR. SAHIB MUSTAQIM BLEHER, FOUNDER OF THE ISLAMIC PARTY IN BRITAIN
1) Given the bicentenary celebrations of Darwin, let me first of all ask you about the theory of evolution by natural selection which you describe as more of a sinister dogma than a mere theory: What do you think are its political objectives?
ADNAN OKTAR: If a theory that is claimed to be scientific, despite having been disproved by all branches of science with hundreds of pieces of scientific evidence, is determinedly imposed on people across the world and kept on its feet despite reason and science, then this is obviously something that does not concern scientists alone. Even when I was still in high school I realized that all this bloodshed, world wars, the ruthless exploitation of people and revolutions could not all have happened spontaneously, and that there had to be a cause behind them. Because human beings cannot become that heartless on their own. They cannot be neighbours having good relations one day and then start slaughtering one another the next. As I researched the question I saw that all these troubles were organized by freemasonry and that Darwinism was the religion of freemasonry.
There is no materialism without Darwinism, and no communism, fascism, savage capitalism or terror without materialism. But Muslims are in general unable to see that. They see that they are up against a terrible scourge, but they do not look into the cause behind it. The fact is that Muslims have been attacked from behind, but they can only see straight in front of them. What lies behind these events? What lies behind such strife and evil? They do not look to see that. Why do people attack religious commandments, Islam? They do not investigate that. They just say “It stems from irreligiousness, from lack of faith” and leave it at that. But they do not ask why those people have turned out like this. When one looks, one is confronted by just one thing – the superstitious religion of Darwinism. So long as the false religion survives they remain loyal to it. The invalidity of that religion must first be proved. What I am doing is to explain to people that this terrible corruption, this terrible lie, is all a deliberate ruse.
Muslims have to date been unable to imagine the cunning power and influence of Darwinism. No Islamic scholar has ever waged the kind of struggle against Darwinism that I am, that we are. There have either written a few lines on the subject in their works or else not have mentioned it at all. They have never made a statement on the subject. I regard this as a blessing, thanks be to Allah. I regard the way that Allah has given this duty to my colleagues and me as a blessing.
2) Why do you think a public debate between evolutionists and creationists, which can be observed in the United States of America, is mostly absent in Europe?
ADNAN OKTAR: There is a one-sided imposition of Darwinism across the world. Around 95% of states officially protect Darwinism and impose the theory of evolution. They seek to impose this false theory with an unbelievable shamelessness and audacity, even though it is obviously false and a lie and even though we have proved that to be the case. This is a disgrace, anti-democratic and something against human rights. There are 100 million fossils in existence, for instance. All of these hundred million fossils all prove creation. But one is forbidden to say that. It is forbidden to say that proteins cannot come into being by chance. There are no transitional fossils, but one is forbidden to say so or to describe the false nature of the skulls concerned. So what about freedom of thought and freedom of expression? This means the imposition of a false idea and a lie. That only happens in dictatorships. That means there is a Darwinist dictatorship. Europe has been crushed under the feet of that dictatorship for some 150 years. Look, there is even pressure on the Vatican; that much is obvious. The Pope has to give the impression he supports evolution. How terrible this is. But Europe has now begun to be enlightened, insha’Allah. The earth moved when my Atlas of Creation arrived in Europe, and there is now a huge change of mind taking place. You can see that belief in Creation is growing stronger by the day in Britain and many people, teachers included say that Creation should be taught in schools. Surveys in Denmark, Sweden and France show that people are no longer being taken in by Darwinism, and this is all major progress. Insha’Allah that progress will pick up even more pace in the future and the Darwinist dictatorship will be eliminated entirely.
3) Another European dogma, often taken to extremes in Turkey, is the separation of religion and politics. In your writings and interviews both religion and politics seem to go hand in hand. What is, in your opinion, the proper role of religion in politics?
ADNAN OKTAR: Belief in Allah and religious moral values are great blessings, great comforts. But Darwinists and materialists have sought to deprive the people of Europe of these blessings, though that tyranny is now coming to an end, insha’Allah. It is a great guarantee and blessing for a political leader to have spiritual values and to love and fear Allah. But one must not, of course, seek to use religious values for political ends. The public do not want that and will spurn anyone who tries to do that.
Some people in Europe misinterpret laicism. They imagine that laicism means atheism and suggest it is a shield to protect their own atheism. Some fail to comprehend the Muslim view of laicism, and that is where the problem stems from. Laicism is a comfort for Muslims, too. There is no hypocrisy where there is laicism, and that is a great blessing. People openly express their ideas. If someone is an atheist he says he is an atheist, honestly and openly. Hypocrisy flourishes where there is no laicism, which is when people with no faith say they are religious, and even very devout, misleading the people around them like an actor playing a role. And who wants that? It is very ugly. The following point is also very important, humanity has in any case learned about laicism, democracy and freedom of ideas from Islam, and these values lie at the heart of Islam. Democratic thought, plurality and laicism also prevail in the Qur’an. In other words, members of other faiths are recognized freedoms, there is love, affection and compassion, freedom of thought for them. There is the concept of republic. The peace of public and their security is essential. These are all to be found in the faith. For that reason, giving the idea that religion conflicts with science or politics is a tactic used by freemasons and materialists, and true Muslims must thwart it.
4) You have come under repeated attacks within Turkey. Recently the Turkish prime minister was welcomed back as a hero by Muslims for walking out of Davos in protest of European support for Israel after its attack on Gaza. Likewise, the success of your books both inside and outside Turkey shows that Muslims want to debate and defeat materialist dogma. Which way do you think the pendulum will swing in Turkey and what sort of timescale are we talking about?
ADNAN OKTAR: I was first detained when I wrote my book Judaism and Freemasonry. I was held in solitary for 9 months and then for 10 months in a ward full of seriously deranged patients in a mental hospital for saying, during a press statement, “I am from the Turkish people, from the nation of Islam.” I was held with 300 mental patients in an old, run-down stone building left over from the time of Sultan Abdulhamid. These were the most seriously deranged patients, unfit to stand trial, who constantly attacked one another and were generally covered in blood. They were unable to meet even their most basic needs, and the place stank to death. Seven killings took place during my time there. They killed each other with food trays. I was not allowed visits from my friends, nor even allowed to talk to the nurses, doctors or interns. After keeping me there for 10 months the military hospital then issued a report saying I was healthy in mind and body. I do not go into too much detail, but it was a tough environment. Yet for me it was a very excellent and honourable time, insha’Allah.
After that there was an endless series of attacks. But after each one, as a blessing, Allah increased the efficacy of my work many times over, and my circle kept expanding. For example, my time in the mental hospital was when the number of my friends grew most of all. There has been huge progress in Turkey over the last 30 years. The Turkish nation has always been devoted to national values and religious faith; but there has been a huge raising of consciousness and awareness over the last 30 years. A very moderate but powerful conception of Islam has settled in the country. The public’s devotion has increased many times over. Belief in Darwinism has declined so far as to be almost non-existent. Turkey is the country with the lowest level of belief in Darwinism anywhere in the world. A bright future now awaits Turkey, insha’Allah.
Turkey will play the role of older brother, leader to the Turkish-Islamic world and ensure their protection. It will ensure the salvation of all Muslims by establishing the Turkish-Islamic Union. The West supports Turkey’s assuming such a role, and it is excitedly anticipated by the Muslim world. That expectation has become even sharper after the event at Davos. The people of the Middle East are openly saying they want to see Turkey as leader. When you look at the Caucasus and ask them who they want to be the leader, they unanimously say Turkey. All Muslim societies, in Africa, the Far East or the Balkans, regard Turkey with love and respect. This excellent progress will further speed up in the future and the Turkish-Islamic world will enter a golden age like the Age of Happiness.
5) You have proposed the formation of a Turkish Islamic Union. Do you see a Turkish Islamic Union as a stepping stone to the re-establishment of some kind of caliphate or do you envisage a different model of global political Islam?
ADNAN OKTAR: It is important for Muslims to gather around a spiritual leader, rather than a caliphate in particular. It is unlawful for Muslims not be united and act as one. In other words, in the eyes of the Qur’an it is obligatory for Muslims to act as one, be brothers as one and gather round a single leader. But they do not do that. The door to all kinds of scourge will remain open so long as they do not do that. Muslims must fulfil this obligation. I say this so that the Turkish-Islamic Union will be established under Turkish leadership, under the leadership of the Turkish nation. Every state will remain as a separate nation state. It can behave freely in domestic matters, but they need to have a spiritual leader at their head. That is because Christians have a Pope, they have a leader. It is essential that Muslims also have a leader. If that union has a leader, then all this strife and chaos can easily come to an end. In that event, if even the hair of Muslims’ heads somewhere is hurt, the incident will be stopped at once because all Muslims will act in concert. But if they are fragmented, if they act in a manner leaving them open to a policy of ‘divide, fragment, swallow’, then it is of course easily to swallow up small morsels. But it is impossible to swallow up the Muslim world as a whole block. Muslims must fulfil this obligation at once.
6) Do you think the nation state as we know it will have much future? If not, what are short-, medium- and long-term alternatives you can see?
ADNAN OKTAR: There will be a period when states will maintain their own existence and alliances will be formed. In the Turkish-Islamic Union, for example, all states will maintain their own existence. Muslim states that maintain their integral natures will come together to form one spirit, a spiritual union, a union of love. It is a question of Muslims gathering under one roof. The age we are living in is the age of Hazrat Mahdi (as). It is the age of the coming of the Prophet Isa’ (as). By Allah’s leave, the Muslim world will soon be in union, and will form a union that covers the world. The coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) will take place. It is the time when Isa’ (as), son of Maryam, will return. This is clear from the verses of the Qur’an. These are absolutely certain in Sunni belief, in the Hanafi, Hanbali, Maliki and Shafi’i schools. Nobody denies them, no imam from any school has ever denied them and all of them accepted. In the same way, the coming of the Prophet ‘Isa (as) is a certainty in Shiite belief. And that of Hazrat Mahdi (as). All the portents of this holy good news have come true. There are some 300 portents of the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) and the Prophet ‘Isa (as), and they have all happened. We will all live together, insha’Allah, Alawites, Sunnis, Jafaris and everyone. And Hazrat Mahdi (as) will lead the Muslim world, insha’Allah. There will be a century of joy and happiness. Islamic moral values will enjoy a glorious world dominion. Christianity will be cleaned of polytheism and assume a purified state. It will amalgamate with Islam and the Qur’an. It will be an excellent outcome for Christianity, and Islam, and the world. The prayer of the Prophet ‘Isa (as) has been heeded. He asked to be one from the community of our Prophet (saas). When he returns to Earth, he will be one from the community of the Prophet Muhammad (saas).
7) You referred to the current global financial crisis as a sign of the End Times. Do you see this crisis predominantly as monetary or economic in nature, and does the solution lie in monetary reform or in economic measures? Will or should there be a return to protectionism and does this herald the end of globalisation?
ADNAN OKTAR: This is no ordinary economic crisis, but a major event described as happening in the End Times. Our Prophet (saas) has stated in the hadith that such an economic crisis will take place before the appearance of Hazrat Mahdi (as). I can give a couple of examples of these hadith:
Before the coming of the Mahdi, TRADE AND ROADS between nations will be cut, and strife among people will grow. (Al-Qawl al-Mukhtasar fi Alamat al-Mahdi al- Muntadhar, p. 39)
STAGNATION IN THE MARKETS, AND A DECREASE IN EARNINGS... (Portents of Doomsday, p. 148)
Everyone COMPLAINING OF LOW EARNINGS... The rich being respected for their money... (Portents of Doomsday, p. 146)
Business being stagnant. Everyone will complain ‘I cannot sell, buy or earn anything.’ (Portents of Doomsday, p. 152)
This economic crisis is metaphysical. All the economists, scientists, industrialists, investors and everyone in the world are trying to stop it, but they cannot and will not. It will bring the whole system down with it. It began in 2007, and by 2014 it will swallow up almost all countries and materialist systems, and the leaders of those systems will be impoverished and humbled. Shortages will grow as a result. That means nobody will be able to assume airs because of his wealth and possessions, or be stubborn and arrogant. Like Qarun, Allah will bring all these systems down. The story of Qarun in the Qur’an is happening now in the End Times. All the treasure of Qarun is collapsing now, in other words. The Qur’an says that Qarun’s treasure was very famous and extensive. It says his might and economic strength was very great. The economic strength of those other people was also very great. But they have now entered the age of famine described in Surah Yusuf. And that famine will last for 7 years, and they will undergo great changes during that time and come to know the Qur’an and the moral values of Islam. Their salvation lies in the Turkish-Islamic Union, insha’Allah.
Allah has already brought that system down across the world and everyone has begun having to renounce the interest system. They will have to abandon it, because this economic crisis of the End Times is a great miracle of the age of Hazrat Mahdi (as). It is a marvel of the age of Hazrat Mahdi (as). And it will overturn all banking systems, all banking systems based on interest. Only in the Turkish-Islamic world will unity, togetherness, health and economic well-being remain, apart from which they will all collapse.
8) In your book on Freemasonry you describe how it gave birth to humanism and attempted to undermine and subvert the Christian religion. Do you think the Muslim religion has been subject to similar degeneration by Freemasonry or other secret societies?
ADNAN OKTAR: The apathy of some Muslims today, the disunity in the Muslim world, the insensitivity of some Arab leaders toward the spilling of Muslim blood in Palestine and the Middle East, the way that some Muslims regard the intellectual struggle against Darwinism as unimportant and the way they engage in no activity on the subject are all the result of masonic activity. They are almost afraid even to speak of Turkish-Islamic union is also the work of the masons. I exclude all of them, but the heads of state of many Islamic countries are under the control of atheist zionists by way of the masons. For example, the president is a freemason, the prime minister is a freemason and ministers are freemasons.
That is the case in several Islamic countries, excluding Turkey. They are very careful when it comes to division, maintaining fragmentation and avoiding union. The leaders of several Islamic countries are on their guard so that a Turkish-Islamic Union should not be established. They say this is the thing to be avoided most of all. And they do indeed strongly avoid it. The fragmentation of Islamic countries, the way they are all divided, is the greatest weapon in the hands of freemasonry. The masons regard them as a horde of ants, and imagine it can easily crush them with its tanks as they have no single leader. They have struck them right in the jugular vein. They have laid hands on their most important weapon. They say that when they strike against one Islamic country that country will be left to its own devices and nobody will come to its support. Because they are testing this out. They are shedding rivers of blood in Palestine, and there is not a squeak of protest from most Islamic countries.
Look, children and the like are crying out for help in Palestine, but Egypt has closed its border and refuses to allow aid convoys in. How is one to explain that? We cannot just sit back and watch if children are being killed. We cannot sit back and say, “But what is they kill us, too.’ Fear is a corruption of the End Times, a scourge of many Muslims: ‘But what if I am imprisoned, or beaten up, or insulted, or slandered or killed?’ My brother, then you will earn the appropriate merit. Is not your aim in life Allah’s approval? Most Islamic countries are in this needless state of fear. They have experienced great suffering. But Allah would not have inflicted that suffering on them had they been rational and courageous. Strength comes from Allah. None other than Allah has strength. Allah hands out fear and afflictions. Allah sends afflictions to the cowardly. But Allah protects the brave. Muslims have a duty to be brave.
9) You frequently quote Said Nursi. To what extend is your own activism and method influenced by the educational movement he founded?
ADNAN OKTAR: My family is a classic Turkish family. In my last years at high school I saw how there was anarchy in Turkey and how some Muslims were being badly oppressed. That made me really uneasy. I developed a strong urge to save and protect Muslims. I began studying and investigating during that time. I was greatly influenced by Imam Rabbani. I read the Letters of Rabbani, an excellent work written in a very sincere style. I read Imam al-Ghazali’s Spiritual Exercises. I was greatly influenced by that, too. But I was especially influenced by the works of Said Nursi. He was the greatest scholar of this century, a very worthy human being. In my view, he is the greatest scholar of the last 1,000 years. I love him dearly. He is an extraordinary person. I do not think his true worth has yet been fully understood. He is a very metaphysical person; whatever he said came true. I really like his very holy Risale-i Nur Collection. I think it is very valuable. It contains great secrets and profound wisdom, and is written in a very sincere style. I recommend it to everyone. It is a superb book.

Rahman is a composer with a staggering range
Indian music director AR Rahman's score for Slumdog Millionaire has won an Oscar for best music, and a second for best song. The BBC's Soutik Biswas discusses what makes Rahman tick.
The curiously named Panchathan Record Inn is a nondescript building tucked away in the thriving film district of the southern Indian city of Madras (Chennai). The backyard music studio is also AR Rahman's atelier.
"We make a lot of noise here," one of Rahman's assistants told me wryly when I paid a visit a few years ago. It was late in the evening, and trombone loops floated down the stairs from the state-of-the art studio above.
The "noise" has now conquered the world.
Seventeen years after he began writing music and songs for films, the jingle maker-turned-musician has finally got recognition as India's first truly global film music composer with his score for Danny Boyle's sleeper hit Slumdog Millionaire.
The score is an untidy smorgasbord of hip hop, Bollywood remix and signature pop anthem. But it works because it follows the film's giddy pace, the darkness of its characters, its portrayal of lives on the edge.
The golden statue is a global recognition of Rahman's enormous talent.
Like many film composers, he is not a particularly gifted vocalist or a player. Rahman, instead, is an alchemist of sounds and voices, mixing and melting them in a potion that is usually a joy for the ear and soul.
Rahman is an alchemist of sounds and voices
Send your comments on Soutik Biswas's article
It is not surprising then that he is a composer with a staggering range - from raga to reggae to hip hop to Indian rustbelt folk to jungle rhythms to faux baroque. All of it is brewed with an unerring feel for melody, swing and soul.
Rahman, who converted to Islam some 20 years ago, is also India's- and Bollywood's- first truly successful crossover music director.
Bollywood has filched tunes from the West for as long as I can remember - check out rip-offs from Chuck Berry, The Beatles, swing jazz and vapid disco for many home-grown hit tunes of the 1950s, 1960s and 1980s. But Rahman is not your archetypal tune ripper; he is, instead, an intrepid fusion tunesmith.

But no matter what they, Darwinists will be unable to alter the fact that Darwinism is dead and buried. There is literally NOBODY LEFT IN THE WORLD TO SUPPORT EVOLUTION.
THE 100 MILLION FOSSILS THAT DARWINISTS KEPT HIDDEN AWAY HAVE BEEN BROUGHT OUT INTO THE DAYLIGHT. AND THERE IS NOT A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FORM AMONG THEM! The proponents of Darwinism have suddenly realized that Darwin's prophecy he made 150 years ago has come true. Because 150 years ago, in his book The Origin of Species, Darwin wrote:
... Why, if species have descended from other species by insensibly fine gradations, do we not everywhere see innumerable transitional forms? Why is not all nature in confusion instead of the species being, as we see them, well defined?… But, as by this theory innumerable transitional forms must have existed, why do we not find them embedded in countless numbers in the crust of the earth?… Why then is not every geological formation and every stratum full of such intermediate links? Geology assuredly does not reveal any such finely graduated organic chain; and this, perhaps, is the most obvious and gravest objection which can be urged against my theory. (Charles Darwin, The Origin of Species, pp. 172, 280)
Darwin's words have been confirmed – NOT ONE SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FORM HAS BEEN UNEARTHED. THAT FACT IS SUFFICIENT TO REPUDIATE DARWINISM all by itself.
The full detail of all the extraordinary complexity in the molecular structures in living things then emerged, and it was realized that it is impossible for even a single protein to form by chance and that a single DNA helix contains an equivalent amount of information to 1 million encyclopedia pages. In other words, it has emerged that Darwinists can offer no explanation or evidence for the origin of species or the origin of life.
The whole world is now aware of the Darwinist deceit. And Darwinists realize it. The typical evolutionary propaganda that recently appeared in Cumhuriyet Bilim Teknik also serves, on close examination, no other purpose than to announce the collapse of Darwin's theory. That is why we are examining the 15 claims made in the journal under the heading 15 CLAIMS THAT DISPROVE DARWIN;
1. The False Claim of Whales' Terrestrial Ancestor:
The subject of the fictitious forebear of whales is a terrible embarrassment for Darwinists. Contemporary Darwinists have long tried to eliminate that embarrassment by concealing the claim that "bears fishing on the sea shore gradually turned into whales." But their own suggestions were little different to that of Darwin's. Darwinists despairingly attempted to portray the ear and tooth structure of a living thing no bigger than a raccoon as evidence of this impossible and fictitious transition. The fact is that this is a classic Darwinist tactic. By pointing to anatomical similarities between different life forms, Darwinists attempted to establish a relationship between a totally unconnected land dweller and a marine mammal. But they were unable even to mention the evidence that would confirm this mythical transition, in other words the subject of transitional forms. They cannot do so because like all Darwinists' other claims, this is a lie, and THERE IS NOT A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FORM TO SUBSTANTIATE IT.
2. The Transition from Water to Dry Land Deceit:
For years, Darwinists portrayed a well-known fossil fish as evidence of their myth of the transition from water to dry land. Described as the best known transitional fossil, the Coelacanth was depicted as a perfect example of that transition from water to land. According to the Darwinist myth, the creature had fins that turned into feet and was developing a lung. However, A LIVING COELACANTH was discovered in the sea in 1938. Darwinists could no longer lie about the Coelacanth. For example, the structures they had for years described as a primitive lung was nothing more than an OIL SAC. The structures they heralded as primitive legs were in fact PERFECT FINS. This life form, alleged to be on the brink of moving from the water to dry land, was in fact a BOTTOM-DWELLING FISH that inhabited depths of 180 meters and that immediately died when brought up into shallower waters. More than 300 other LIVING SPECIMENS have subsequently been caught.
The Darwinist speculation regarding the Tiktaalik was no different to that concerning the Coelacanth. The Tiktaalik, a creature with a mosaic character (containing perfect structures from different life forms), is an exceedingly complex life form with well preserved fossil remains. But its characteristics display no transitional features. Each one is a fully developed, perfect structure found in mosaic life forms (such as the platypus). The sole reason for the Darwinist conjecture around the animal is that they interpret the fossil remains of this extinct mosaic form in the light of their own preconceptions. Just as wsith the Coelacanth.
The absence of a single transitional form in the myth of the transition from water to dry land, not to mention such a transition being anatomically and physiologically impossible, is alone sufficient to repudiate the claims on the subject.
3. The Evolution of Feathers Deceit:
Darwinists ignore one very important fact as they espouse the myth of a transition from land to the air. The 100 million fossils they kept hidden away have now been brought out into the daylight, and these contain perfect flying birds that were contemporary with Archaeopteryx. People have personally examined the 125-million-year-old LIAONINGORNIS fossil and the 120-million-year-old CONFUCIUSORNIS fossil. And that is why they now laugh at deceptions such as "Archaeopteryx is a transitional fossil" or "Epidexipteryx, discovered more recently, was the ancestor of birds."
All the claims regarding Archaeopteryx have long since been discredited. It has been realized that the animal was a bird capable of perfect flight, and that its teeth and claws are structures also found in contemporary birds.
4. The Evolution of Teeth Deceit:
The way that Nature magazine and Cumhuriyet Bilim Teknik are able to carry the claim that teeth evolved and to cite a study performed on the molar teeth of mice is quite amazing. All living things have their own unique characteristics. Their anatomical structures are therefore different to one another. It is perfectly natural for mice to have genetic sequences different to those of other rodents. This is evidence, not that they evolved, but that the life forms in question were specially created for their habitants and living conditions. All living things possess, by Allah's will, the most perfect equipment and structures. In order to portray this as evidence of evolution, Darwinists need to produce transitional fossils revealing the supposed development of these structures. But not a single intermediate form fossil exists. That means this claim is nothing more than Darwinist demagoguery.
5. The Evolution of the Vertebrate Skeleton Deceit:
The explanation in the report is literally this: "The neural crest, the existence of which is known only in embryos, explains why vertebrates have different skull and facial structures. But it is impossible to indicate the evolutionary history of the neural crest through fossil evidence because of the lack of embryonic data."
It is inexplicable how something for which there is no fossil evidence, as openly admitted in the article, can be depicted as evidence for supposed evolution. The neural crest in the human embryo is a magnificent structure. Cumhuriyet Bilim Teknik made do with describing the perfection of the structure in question and was also obliged to admit that there were no evolutionary races belonging to it in the fossil record. This is a blatant confession that evolution never happened and that living things are created with all their immaculate structures.
6. The Speciation Deceit:
Members of a species always reproduce with members of the same species in nature. And various characteristics in members of a species arising due to environmental factors or present in the genes, may come to predominate in subsequent generations. In the same way that tallness may predominate in the children of one tall and one short individual. But this change arising in subsequent generations cannot turn living things into another species. Darwin's finches developed longer or shorter beaks, but they never became other life forms. They did not turn into peacocks or bats. In the example in the article, sticklebacks did not give rise to a new species by reproducing one another. Sticklebacks anosticklebacks and have acquired no new features apart from those arising from their own genes. No matter how much Darwinists attempt to mislead people by the use of variations, this very definitely constitutes no evidence for evolution.
7. The Natural Elimination Is Evolution Deceit:
Ever since Darwin's day, natural elimination has been put forward as Darwinists' most favored supposed evolutionary mechanism. But it is actually a terrible lie. Existing information in a living thing's genes may give rise to various anatomical changes on account of environmental factors. But these changes never turn one life form into another. They never bestow any new organs or structures on it. The fact that lizards' tails shorten due to environmental factors is no evidence of evolution.
8. The Simultaneous Evolution Deceit:
Simultaneous evolution is another deceptive concept employed by Darwinists. The article in question contained a scenario regarding the supposed evolution of bacteria and parasites. The interesting thing is that bacteria that existed as far back as 3.6 billion years ago are still bacteria, and their parasites are still parasites. For some reason, no changes took place in the life forms in question during this supposed evolution, and no evolution ever happened. These single-cell organisms that should, according to Darwinists' claims, have developed and turned into fish, mammals and even human beings, are exactly the same now as they were 3.5 billion years ago. Because, like all other life forms, these creatures are entities created by Allah, out of nothing. And they were created with the same appearance 3.5 billion years ago as that they are created with today.
9. The Evolutionary Variation Deceit:
What Darwinists keep trying to depict as evidence for evolution, albeit under different names and with different examples, is always the same thing: variations. Darwinists attempt to distort variations within a species and portray them as instances of evolution. But this is a lie. The fact that the great tits considered in the article possess different structural features in different regions represents no advantage for the theory of evolution. In order to be evidence for evolution, the birds in question would have had to have developed new structures not belonging to them, such as arms or fins. But that is impossible. These life forms change within the bounds of the information contained in their genes, as happened in the instance cited in the paper. For that reason, certain genes becoming dominant within certain genetic structures in living things is simply variation and represents to evidence for evolution.
10. The Evolution of the Lepistes Surviving through Natural Elimination Deceit:
The way that the Lepistes fish in the article survived because of their different colors when subjected to natural elimination is no evidence of evolution. The fact a life form survives through natural elimination does not cause it to evolve. Therefore, the gradual elimination of lepistes of different colors did not bestow any new characteristics on them. Elimination of living things because of physical characteristics has no other outcome than an increase in the numbers of lepistes of some colors and a reduction in the numbers of the others. That will remain the case even over millions of years. The idea that natural elimination is an evolutionary mechanism is an entirely fictitious one.
11. The Depicting Proofs of Creation As Evidence of Evolution Deceit:
One technique employed by Darwinists is to describe the glorious characteristics of living things and then maintain that these are a miracle of so-called evolution. The magnificent hunting characteristics of the Moray eel are described in the same way in the article and the same method then employed. The animal's perfect anatomical structure, and its thin body ideally suited to its hunting technique are described in detail and then, inexplicably and with no supporting evidence of any kind, ascribed to so-called evolution. The fact is that this immaculate structure proves that the creatures was created of nothing, together with all its features. There are also fossil records that show that the eel was created together with all these superior features and has remained unchanged for all the millions of years since. 95-million-year-old eel fossils demolish all evolutionist claims. Darwinists' demagogic accounts devoid of any evidence at all merely humiliate them in the face of this obvious truth.
12. The Deceit of Depicting Variation in Finch Beaks as Proof of Evolution Ever Since Darwin's Time:
Finches may have different shaped beaks within the same species. That state of affairs may also apply to other life forms. But the important thing – as stated earlier – is that these changes within a species already exist within the genes. These animals have possessed that information since they were first created. The differences in their beaks did arise as a result of information added to their genes subsequently. Finches will undergo variation to the extent that differences exist in their genes. It is impossible for beaks to assume any shape not already in finches' genes or to turn into any other organ.
All the examples that Darwinists have cited of speciation are deceptions. No finches have ever turned into an eagle or a bat, a mammal. No finch beak has ever turned into a terrestrial mammal's nose. These animals have never undergone any evolutionary change at all. It is a lie to claim that changes in beaks are the result of information added to the genes. It is impossible for information to be added to living things' genes in random processes and for this to bestow any advantage on an organism or develop into any new organ, and such a thing has never happened.
13. Microevolution and Macroevolution Are Deceptions:
Evolutionists refer to variation within a species as "microevolution" and to the hypothesis of the formation of new species as "macroevolution," both of which are illusory processes. But the whole thing is a lie.
1) The process known as microevolution never happened. All the examples that Darwinists cite as evidence for microevolution are in fact variations arising within a species. But variations are not evolution. An insect developing resistance to pesticides, finch beaks assuming different shapes or cows living on different continents being more or less hairy are the result of the perfect systems created within their genes. These life forms never acquired any characteristic from nowhere, and never evolved.
2) Neither did the illusory process known as macroevolution ever take place. Darwinists are lying when they claim that fossils representing evidence for macroevolution have been discovered. They possess not a single transitional form fossil. According to Darwinists, there should be billions or even trillions of fossils to verify this claim. Yet 100 million fossils have so far been unearthed. They have all been closely examined, BUT NOT A SINGLE ONE IS A TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSIL. Darwinists' claim that we can see evidence for macroevolution in the structure of genes is a second great lie. Indeed, because they have no evidence to support this idea, Darwinists attempt to explain it away with such demagogic and diplomatic expressions as "evolution may have had a great effect on genes."
Genes are extraordinarily complex and magnificent structures that have been operating perfectly since the moment they were first created. Even a single DNA, the smallest part of these structures, is a major challenge to Darwinists. Darwinism is a theory that has collapsed on both the molecular and paleontological levels.
14. The Resistance to Poisons Is Evidence of Evolution Deceit:
Living things are created with glorious characteristics. The structures in their bodies and what happens in them are breathtaking. Darwinists, however, generally take these structures and include them in evolutionary fairy tales. But in doing so THEY HAVE NOT A SINGLE MOLECULAR FINDING OR FOSSIL REMAIN to act as evidence for this fictitious evolution.
The clams cited in this section are miracles of creation with their resistance to the toxin known as saxitoxin. Darwinists are unable to explain how these organism came to possess this extraordinary system, and it is impossible for them ever to do so. Because as with all living things' structures, this is extraordinarily complex and totally refutes the theory of evolution. It is also a miracle how another member of the same species should lack this immunity because it lives in a toxin-free region. Almighty Allah has created these organisms in the most appropriate manner for their surroundings. In order for Darwinists to be able to depict this as evidence for Darwinism, they need to show how the illusory evolutionary processes concerned took place, and what their supporting evidence is.
The idea that "clams have different properties in different habitats, and this is the result of evolution" might once have deceived primary school children, but even they can no longer be taken in by it.
15. The Attempt to Suggest Evolution with Scenarios of Evolutionary Resistance Deceit:
Since evolution is a false theory, Darwinists have a constant need to develop tactics for their propaganda. They always ascribe molecular discoveries to the theory of evolution. But rather than admitting that evolution is a lie, they keep trying to adapt new findings to it. They always depict new fossil discoveries as evidence against evolution. Rather than giving up in the absence of any transitional fossils, Darwinists try to gloss over it. As we have seen, what Darwinists do is to keep developing new tactics in the face of discoveries that repudiate evolution, rather than coming up with any proof. Darwinism is founded, not on finding and submitting evidence, but on thinking up new tactics and demagoguery. And demagoguery is essential for Darwinists, BECAUSE THEIR THEORY IS DEVOID OF ANY EVIDENCE.
One tactic is developed in section 15 of the Cumhuriyet Bilim Teknik article, with an amazing attempt to portray fossils that refute evolution as evidence for it. There are millions of living fossils in the world. The crocodiles, deer, bears, birds, reptiles, fish, insects, and in short all living things in the fossil record have the same appearances and anatomies as they did when they were first created. Allah has miraculously preserved them with the same appearances they had millions of years in the past. So much so that Darwinists can never gloss over the reality of living fossils.
That is why Darwinists admit the existence of living fossils but try to interpret their emergence according to their own lights. The best known example of this is the idea that life forms can remain unaltered for millions of years but then undergo sudden changes (punctuated evolution). This huge deception, based on the logic of "how can we adapt the fossil record to evolution?" has been imposed on Darwinists by the way fossils repudiate evolution. Because living things really have remained unchanged for millions of years, although the Darwinist concept of sudden changes is a lie. There is not the slightest trace of such great changes in the fossil record. Such changes cannot be tested, observed or explained. There are no traces anywhere in the world or under the ground of such momentous changes. Allah created living things millions of years ago with the same appearances they have today. The idea of sudden change is, like the theory of evolution itself, a terrible lie.
As we have seen, these 15 elements depicted as evidence for evolution in fact all utterly refute it. The purpose behind such articles is to try to resuscitate a theory that is already dead. Yet everyone in the world, Darwinists included, is now well aware that Darwinism has collapsed. Darwin's prophecy has come true. The fossil record has annihilated the theory of evolution. The world has now learned this truth. Darwinism needs transitional fossils to keep its claims alive. But there are none. That being the case, Darwinist demagoguery is simply a waste of time and embarrassment to Darwinists themselves. Our advice to Nature and Cumhriyet Bilim Teknik is that they finally admit the fact.

And the inner self and what proportioned it and filled it with both its debauchery and its sense of duty, he who purifies it has succeeded. (Surat ash-Shams: 7-9)
The inner self is mentioned in the verses as the source of all depravities and wrong acts of people. Having such a feature, the inner self is among the most avowed enemies of mankind. The inner self is arrogant and selfish; it always wants to satisfy its own desires and vanity. It cares only about its own needs, interests and seeks only pleasure. It resorts to every means to tempt mankind since it is not always possible to fulfil its wishes through legitimate ways. The words of the Prophet Joseph explains this fact in the Qur'an as follows:
I do not say I free my self was from blame. The inner self indeed commands evil acts - except for those whom my Lord has mercy on. My Lord, He is Forgiving, Merciful.' (Surah Yusuf: 53)
That one's inner self vigorously inspires evil and wicked deeds is a very important secret revealed to believers having fear of God. This way, they know that the devices of the inner self will never cease, not even for a single moment. Through temptations, it continuously tries to lead man astray from God's way. In accordance with this secret, the inner self will never remain silent; it will justify its deeds under all circumstances, will love itself more than all others, will grow arrogant, will desire to possess everything good and will desire to lead a life of pleasure. In brief, it will resort to any means to make a person display the type of an attitude contrary to the morality which would please God.
Indeed, the behaviour and manners of disbelievers, which do not comply with the morals of the Qur'an, are shaped completely by their inner-selves. Having no fear of God, disbelievers cannot demonstrate the will to obey their conscience but rather follow their inner-selves. Quarrels, conflicts of interests and unhappiness raging in societies in which the morality of the religion is cast aside, have their roots in individuals' plunging into their inner-selves and their own interests and consequently, losing all their humane attributes such as true love, respect and sacrifice.
That is why this secret revealed by God is of great importance. As long as one keeps this secret in mind, he can take precautions against his inner self and assume the correct way of conduct. The inner self can be disciplined by doing just the opposite of what it commands. For example, when the inner self commands laziness, one must work harder. When the inner self commands selfishness, one must become more self-sacrificing. When the inner self commands stinginess, one must become more generous.
Apart from the wicked side of the soul, from Surat ash-Shams, we know that God also inspired in the soul a conscience which makes a person restrain his soul from fulfilling lower desires. That is to say, next to an inspiration instigating the soul to evil, the soul is also open to instigation of righteousness. Every man is aware of these whispering voices and recognises the evil and the righteous one. Yet, only those who fear God follow the voice of their conscience.
''The Main Aim of Science Itself Is to Help Art'' - 10.12.2008 USA/Seed Magazine
From Nathan Schneider's interview with Adnan OktarThe 10 December 2008 issue of the magazine Seed, published bi-monthly in the USA, reported its impressions from an interview conducted with Adnan Oktar by Nathan Schneider. (Click here for the full transcript of the interview.) Some of the comments in the report read as follows:
His 17-inch tall, 850-page book called The Atlas of Creation, which began appearing in mailboxes of scientists across Europe and the United States two years ago, aims to debunk Darwinian evolution with brilliant color, sensational photo-collages, and Qur'anic exegesis. It presents hundreds of fossils, pictured alongside modern flora and fauna, as evidence that all species were created separately by God millions of years ago and have undergone no modification at all. The Atlas goes on to blame Darwinist theories for a whole roster of worldly ills, including fascism, terrorism, and even the Columbine shooting. ...Harun Yahya's books are just as polished as he is. They often come printed in full color on glossy paper, full of photographs and graphics. In one of his several books condemning violence, Only Love Can Defeat Terrorism, an ornamental gold border frames every page. ... In Islamic bookstores from Istanbul to Chicago, I've seen rows of Harun Yahya books prominently on display. Booksellers tell me that they are popular among customers... "The main aim of science itself is to help art," Oktar told me. It is "a tool which we use to make our world more beautiful every day." ... For both [Bediuzzaman Said] Nursi and Oktar, science can be wielded like a paintbrush, revealing the divine orchestration everywhere in nature. And Darwinism represents a failure to see the world as a work of art created by an Artist. ..."In ten years time, Jesus Christ will possibly come to this earth," Oktar proclaimed to me. By then, he continued, "all of these bloody ideologies and nonsensical ways of thinking about creation will be eradicated."

HAZRAT MAHDI'S (AS) NAME AND RENOWN WILL CONSTANTLY SPREAD ACROSS THE WORLD
Hazrat Mahdi (as), who is revealed in the hadith as coming in the End Times, is a holy individual awaited with great love and fervor by the whole Islamic world for some 1400 years, whom all Muslims at all times wish to live alongside, and blessed and charged with a most honorable task by Allah (God). Our Prophet (saas) reveals that Allah will send Hazrat Mahdi (as) as a great blessing for the entire Muslim world and that he will ‘cause Islamic moral values to prevail across the world. According to the information provided by our Prophet (saas), the coming of Hazrat Mahdi (as) is now very close, and will soon take place. According to the indications in the hadith, Hazrat Mahdi (as) has already started work and is carrying out his activities among people. However, it is still uncertain who Hazrat Mahdi (as) actually is; people do not recognize him, even though he is among them, and do not know him by his title of Hazrat ‘Mahdi’ (as). However, the hadith of our Prophet (saas) provide a great deal of detailed information, signs and evidence for people to be able to recognize him. One of the important pieces of information that provide a clue as to recognizing Hazrat ‘Mahdi’ (as) is that ‘Hazrat ‘Mahdi’ (as) name and fame will spread constantly across the world.’ Even if people do not know he is the Hazrat Mahdi (as), they will frequently see him, hear his voice, learn his ideas, follow his works and activities and speak often about him, in manners described in the hadith. The hadith reveal how during this time, people will frequently speak of Hazrat Mahdi (as), remember his name, talk about him and feel great love and fervor for him:
HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL APPEAR, EVERYONE WILL SPEAK OF HIM ALONE; THEY WILL ABSORB HIS LOVE AND SPEAK OF NOTHING ELSE. 1
When Hazrat Mahdi (as) comes, PEOPLE WILL EMBRACE HIM WITH LOVE AND AFFECTION. 2
Hazrat Mahdi (as) is the most auspicious of people (in his time). His helpers and those who swear allegiance to him ... will have Jibril before them and Mikail behind. HE (HAZRAT MAHDI (AS) WILL BE BELOVED OF ALL LIVING THINGS. 3

Harun Yahya is a pen name used by Mr. Adnan Oktar.
Born in Ankara in 1956, Adnan Oktar is a prominent Turkish intellectual. Completely devoted to moral values and dedicated to communicating the sacred values he cherishes to other people, Oktar started his intellectual struggle in 1979 during his education at Mimar Sinan University's Academy of Fine Arts. During his university years, he carried out detailed research into the prevalent materialistic philosophies and ideologies around him, to the extent of becoming even more knowledgeable about them than their advocates. As a result of his accumulation of knowledge, he has written various books on the fallacy of the theory of evolution. His dedicated intellectual effort against Darwinism and materialism has grown out to be a worldwide phenomenon. Quoting from the 22 April 2000 issue of New Scientist, Mr. Oktar became an "international hero" in communicating the fallacy of the theory of evolution and the fact of creation. The author's intellectual struggle against materialism and Darwinism has frequently been mentioned in such mainly evolutionist publications as National Geographic, Science, New Scientist and NSCE Reports. The English and German editions of the November, 2004, issue of National Geographic referred to the author's works concerning the Fact of Creation. The following quotation from the book The Evolution Deceit was also included: "The theory of evolution is nothing but a deception imposed on us by the dominators of the world system." The author has also produced various works on Zionist racism and Freemasonry and their negative effects on world history and politics. The Zionism criticised by the author in his books is the baseless claims of Zionist extremists pretend to world sovereignty, regard other human beings as worthless entities, maintain that the Jews are the chosen people and that God is theirs alone. Yet the author's writings very definitely do not imply a rejection of the Jews' right to live in peace and security within the borders of their own state.
