GOD'S GENTLE ARTISTRY
Almost every newborn creature is weak and helpless, unaware of the dangers that surround it. It is very unlikely that it could survive and grow on its own. From the moment it is born it will always have adults nearby to feed it, protect it from danger and, if necessary, sacrifice their own lives for it.
Young animals can survive only if they are looked after by strong grown-ups. A gazelle abandoned at birth or bird's eggs left uncared for have no chance of survival. But young animals usually can survive because they have careful parents who do not neglect their responsibilities, even before their young are still in the egg or the womb. Many creatures go to a lot of trouble to protect their eggs, hiding them where they will not get broken, keeping them warm and when necessary, protecting them from too much heat. They will guard over their eggs for weeks and even carry them around in their mouths without harming them in any way.
But why do these creatures work so tirelessly on behalf of their young? Why don't they leave them on their own, instead of dutifully attending to all their needs? Do they do so consciously? For example, is it reasonable to think that a bird can be consciously determined to risk its own death to protect its young? Of course not! An animal cannot possess such feelings of tenderness and compassion on its own. The plain fact is that God has inspired in these creatures a wondrous sense of tenderness and parental love. And one of creation's greatest wonders is the self-sacrifice of parents for their babies.
Another wonder is how cute all young animals are. Babies of most species usually have big eyes and round faces; and an expression that we humans interpret as innocent, helpless, and bewildered. Also, their behavior makes them loveable and awakens in us the instinct to protect them.
These qualities in young animals are manifestations of God's gentle artistry (gentle in this sense also includes the ideas of "lovable," "friendly," "tame" and "docile"). As with everything else in the universe, these animals are submissive to God, as He reveals to us in the following verse:
… when everything in the heavens and Earth, willingly or unwillingly, submits to Him and to Him you will be returned... (Surah Al ‘Imran, 83)
The oil found in eucalyptus leaves is poisonous to many mammals. This poison is a chemical defense mechanism used by eucalyptus trees against their enemies. Yet there is a very special living being that gets the better of this mechanism and feeds on poisonous eucalyptus leaves: a marsupial called the koala. Koalas make their homes in eucalyptus trees while they also feed on them and obtain their water from them.
Like other mammals, koalas also cannot digest the cellulose present in the trees. For this, it is dependent on cellulose-digesting micro-organisms. These micro-organisms are heavily populated in the convergence point of small and large intestines, the caecum which is the rear extension of the intestinal system. The caecum is the most interesting part of the digestion system of the koala. This segment functions as a fermentation chamber where microbes are made to digest cellulose while the passage of the leaves is delayed. Thus, the koala can neutralize the poisonous effect of the oils in the eucalyptus leaves.
WHY DO DARWINISTS NOT GIVE UP?
Darwinism is the worst mass deception in the history of the world. This false theory, launched with a false use of science, is supported by not a single piece of scientific evidence. But this deception has still been disseminated across the world, using false fossils and intense demagoguery, and has entered school books and is taught as a compulsory course in universities. Propaganda for this deception has been carried in the world’s best-known scientific journals and other publications, as if it were an established fact. This is a result of the systematic activity of the Darwinist dictatorship that has ruled the world for the last 150 years. The Darwinist dictatorship uses this technique to wear people down:
A scientist studies for years, works very hard, makes sacrifices and eventually becomes an expert filled with whole volumes-worth of knowledge. One subject has been taught for decades in the best schools, and it is essential he believe in this if he is to become a “scientist:” Evolution. From an early age he has seen pictures of imaginary ape-like ancestors of human beings, looking at pictures of hoax skulls, he imagined he was descended from those creatures and believed, on the basis of false fossil images, that living things descended from one another in stages. He was told that “there is evidence of evolution” and new pictures were placed before him. Odd-looking beings about to step from water onto dry land, or a strange dinosaur about to take off in flight were put before him as evidence of this imaginary transition. He never even thought of seeing real fossils belonging to these fictitious transitional creatures. He never wondered why Darwinists have never come up with even a single intermediate form fossil, why there have only ever resorted to hoaxes or why they kept genuine fossils hidden away. Because throughout the course of his education he was indoctrinated with a single idea, “belief in evolution is obligatory, and all ideas opposed to it must be rejected.”
In time, this person will realize that he should not oppose Darwinism. He will see that the Darwinist dictatorship holds sway all around him; later, he will even learn that this rotten Darwinist dictatorship rules the whole world and enjoys the backing of the states in it. It will dawn on him that those people choosing to make a stand against Darwinism have been intimidated or removed from their posts, and that his teachers have taught him nothing but Darwinism. And he will realize that even if he has come to believe that Darwinism is a fraud, it is essential that he never question it. Because if he wants to be a scientist, he must do what the Darwinist dictatorship says.
When he becomes a scientist and attains expert status, when he is praised by scientific circles, constantly keeps his name in the scientific journals, is invited to attend conferences, discussion panels and congresses, is supported by one and all and has made a really good career, he will also think that some things are very difficult. He will of course have realized that Darwinism is a deviant theory, that it is supported by no scientific evidence whatsoever and is a pagan religion that has been imposed on whole masses of people. It is impossible for a scientist to fail to comprehend something that primary school children now have no difficulty in understanding. Throughout his career he will have been compelled to advocate this false theory. He will have thought he has no alternative if he wants to preserve his career in the face of pressure from the Darwinist dictatorship. He will have talked about evolution for 30 years, written books about it, given lectures on the subject and held conferences concerning it, so admitting that it is a fraud will be very difficult. He thinks that to do so will mean repudiating his career and that he will be excluded by the Darwinist dictatorship. He is well aware that it is a huge error to advocate Darwinism, but he will continue having to espouse a lie under pressure from the Darwinist dictatorship.
Scientists everywhere in the world are currently in exactly the same situation. It is impossible for scientists not to see the fraudulent nature evolution, especially now that millions of living fossils have been displayed, particularly with the Atlas of Creation, now that 100 million fossils unearthed have all repudiated Darwinism and now that the fact that NOT A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FOSSIL EXISTS has emerged into the open. If that scientist is a real scientist, unhampered by prejudice, if he acts in the light of the scientific evidence, THE SCIENTIFIC FACTS ARE THERE FOR ALL TO SEE. It is impossible for such a scientist to believe in Darwinism any longer.
The best thing for any scientist who sees this is to honestly defend the true facts, RATHER THAN PERSISTING IN MAINTAINING A LIE.
There have been some very high-profile instances of this. Anthony Flew, for instance, spent years propagandizing atheism, and has countless books and conferences on the subject to his name. From being a dyed in the wool adherent of atheism and Darwinism, he began looking a little more closely at the scientific facts in front of him and came to have faith in our Almighty Lord by seeing that nothing on Earth comes into being by chance, that everything is created for a purpose and that everything created is a separate miracle. Francis Collins a former Darwinist and atheist and director of the Human Genome Project is another example. Looking honestly, closely and rationally, and without bias, at the DNA he was investigating was enough for him o come to believe in Allah.
There is no doubt that Allah protects everyone who sees the truth and turns onto His path. Even the Darwinist dictatorship that seems so powerful at the moment is under Allah’s control. When the time comes – and the day is not far off – the Darwinist dictatorship will collapse and cease to exist. All might and power belong to Allah. That is why level-headed scientists who have seen the true facts, even if they have spent years advocating Darwinism, must follow their consciences and abandon this outdated theory before it is too late. It is a violation of good conscience to espouse a lie in the knowledge that it is a lie, and may incur a heavy responsibility. The truly virtuous thing is to abandon one’s error and follow one’s conscience by seeing and teaching the truth.
The Islamic Personality Award Should Go to Harun Yahya - 01.12.2008
Al Rai, Kuwait’s largest Arabic-language daily, carried praise for Harun Yahya’s struggle against Darwinism in its column page in its 1 December, 2008, edition. At the same time, Dr. Mohammed Al Awathi, a presenter on Al Rai television, said in his back page column that Adnan Oktar should be given an award for his contributions to Islam and that the works of Harun Yahya should be translated into Chinese for the struggle against Darwinism in China. The article went on to say the following about the works of Harun Yahya:
Every year in the month of Ramadan the Dubai government awards a prize to an individual or institution for their services to Islam... Every year, the organizers ask me months in advance for names to whom the Islamic Personality Award might be given. I mentioned the Turkish scholar who writes under the pen name Harun Yahya. Born in Ankara in 1956, he studied in the fine arts department of Mimar Sinan University and in the philosophy department of Istanbul University. Most of the books he has published since 1980 have been about politics, science or faith. Harun Yahya writes about the erroneous nature of the theory of evolution; he discusses the origin of life, how the first cell formed and the invalidity of the theory of evolution. He says there is a link between Darwinism and bloody ideologies. His books have been translated into English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Albanian, Arabic, Polish, Russian, Indonesian, Bosnian, Tatar and Urdu and have been published in those countries. Harun Yahya sends his books to a great many people, Muslim or otherwise, and irrespective of their age, ethnic origin or nationality. He explains the existence of God with verses from the Qur’an...
I saw Harun Yahya’s brief programs during Ramadan. His excellently printed books are very impressive, full of colored illustrations and scientific diagrams. His books include; The Miracle of Hormones, The Miracle in the Cell. Photosynthesis; The Green Miracle, The Design in Nature, Devotion Among Animals: Revealing the Work of God, The Miracle of Creation in Plants, Deep Thinking, Magnificence Everywhere, Timelessness And The Reality Of Fate. Harun Yahya’s films include Islam Denounces Terrorism, The Collapse of Materialism, The End of Darwinism, The Architects in Nature and The Splendor in the Seas. Sad to say, I only saw three of Harun Yahya’s books at the book fair, which is due to end on Saturday, and am now looking for a copy of his The Disasters Darwinism Brought to Humanity...
A Bus Campaign Has Introduced 14 Americans To Islam / World Bulletin / 29.10.2008
American Muslims have initiated a major campaign on the subject of Islam. Traveling around Chicago in a bus bearing a sign saying, “ISLAM” Got Questions? Get Answers! American Muslims responded to all kinds of questions on the subject of Islam and have been instrumental in 14 Americans accepting the faith.
The Americans involved are providing a great service with the aim of eradicating prejudice against Islam and providing true information on Islamic moral values.
This campaign, being run within the scope of the ICNA’s (Islamic Circle of North America) GainPeace project, was initiated in order to preach Islam to non-Muslims and to clarify misconceptions that they may hold due to biased reports in the media.
The team traveling on the bus through the streets of Chicago stop frequently, preach the oneness of Allah and invite people to Islam in order to become acquainted with the true faith of all the prophets of Allah.
Muslims have an important responsibility to be instrumental in people attaining true guidance and to ensure they avoid what is evil by showing them what is good. However, it is only our Almighty Lord Who will bestow guidance. This responsibility incumbent upon believers is revealed as follows in the Qur’an:
Let there be a community among you who call to the good, and enjoin the right, and forbid the wrong. They are the ones who have success. (Surah Al ‘Imran, 104)
Age: 100 million years old
Size: 26 millimeters (1 in) across pectoral fins, 120 millimeters (4.7 in) in length; matrix: 180 millimeters (7 in) by 90 millimeters (3.5 in)
Location: Haqil, Lebanon
Period: Middle Cretaceous, Cenomanian
This fossil of a flying fish was found in the Haqil limestone deposits. The fish has been very well preserved, showing all its external characteristics. The fish is 12 centimeters (4.7 in) long, and its fins extend to 26 millimeters (1 in) in length. There is no difference between contemporary flying fish and those that lived millions of years ago. This shows that these creatures did not evolve, but were created.
The Beneficent; The All-Good
TURKEY WILL BECOME A FOCAL POINT
Beforehand we certainly used to call on Him because He is the All-Good , the Most Merciful. ( Surat at-Tur, 28)
Allah created all people and placed them in a setting that is perfectly suitable for human life and that was designed to serve them. In Surat an-Nahl, Allah informs us about some of these blessings:
He created man from a drop of sperm, and yet he is an open challenger! And He created livestock. There is warmth for you in them and various uses, and some of them you eat. And there is beauty in them for you in the evening when you bring them home, and in the morning when you drive them out to graze. They carry your loads to lands you would never reach, except with great difficulty. Your Lord is All-Gentle, Most Merciful. And horses, mules, and donkeys both to ride and for adornment. And He creates other things you do not know. The Way should lead to Allah, but there are those who deviate from it. If He had willed, He could have guided every one of you. He sends down water from the sky, from which you drink and from which come the shrubs among which you graze your herds. And by it He makes crops grow for you, as well as olives, dates, grapes, and fruit of every kind. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who reflect. He has made night and day subservient to you, and the Sun and Moon and stars, all of which are subject to His command. There are certainly Signs in that for people who use their intellect. And also the things of varying colors He has created for you in Earth. There is certainly a Sign in that for people who pay heed. He made the sea subservient to you so that you can eat fresh meat from it and bring out from it ornaments to wear. And you see the ships cleaving through it so that you can seek His bounty, and so that hopefully you will show thanks. He cast firmly embedded mountains on the ground so it would not move under you, and rivers and pathways so that hopefully you would be guided, and landmarks. And they are guided by the stars. ( Surat an-Nahl, 4-16)
No doubt, one can never bring into being, possess, or attain any of the blessings mentioned above by his own efforts. However, Allah has granted all of these beauties to humanity as blessings to indicate His vast generosity toward His servants. In return for such goodness, what does He expect? In the remaining part of the sura, Allah answers that He expects humanity to heed and serve Him, as follows:
Is He Who creates like him who does not create? So will you not pay heed? If you tried to number Allah's blessings, you could never count them. Allah is Ever-Forgiving, Most Merciful. ( Surat an-Nahl, 17-18)
Creation of Universe
What He Said
Mardin Kanal 47, July 28-2008
Adnan Oktar: Nothing will happen to Turkey. TURKEY WILL BE THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE MIDDLE EAST, THE BALKANS, THE ISLAMIC WORLD AND THE TURKIC WORLD. IT WILL BE THE LEADING COUNTRY. The Turkish-Islamic Union will be founded. Turkey will be the leader of the Turkish-Islamic Union.
Azerbaijan Gazete 525, August 27-2008
Adnan Oktar: Turkey is truly a model country for the Islamic world. It has an excellent understanding and excellent application of Turkish nationalism, has an excellent understanding and application of Islam and also has assimilated laicism in a very good way. All Islamic countries accept that our country best applies and lives by Islam. In other words, Turkey is scrupulous when it comes to cleanliness, true understanding, true application and true taqwa [fear and respect of Allah]. This may be the influence of Ottoman scholars as it is a legacy from Ottoman times. Allah gives rise to this excellence, for which reason I THINK THAT TURKEY IS THE COUNTRY BEST SUITED TO LEADERSHIP OF THE TURKISH-ISLAMIC WORLD.
Azerbaijan Halk Gazetesi, October 6-2008
Adnan Oktar: If one were to ask the peoples of the Caucasus, under which country’s flag and leadership do you wish to unite? They will say they like Turkey very much. THEY WILL SAY THEY WANT the Turkish state to be their elder brother, their guide, to unite, as separate nation states, with each state free and independent in domestic terms, but WITH TURKEY AS ELDER BROTHER AND SPIRITUAL LEADER.
Mavi Karadeniz TV, December 31-2008
Adnan Oktar: Yes, yes, TURKEY MUST ABSOLUTELY BE THE LEADER. Because it is a perfect country in terms of experience, and structure and moral structure, Turkey and the Turks. Since it carries the ideal leadership qualities, Turkey must be the leader. Because all the Turkish states we talk to share the same opinion. We are in touch with all Islamic countries, too. They also hold the same view, and nobody is saying “no” now. All we need to do is make it a reality right away.

However, his outburst at Davos has raised Tayyip Erdoğan and Turkey to an entirely new place in the Middle East equation because of his title of Prime Minister of the Turkish Republic.” And the Middle East equation has thus changed. There are three main reasons for this: 1. Since it is Turkey that has acted and “changed tack” on the political floor. Turkey is no ordinary country. It is the main heir of a state that ruled an area comprising Israel and Palestine, Syria and Lebanon, Iraq and Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Egypt for 400 years. It is 100 years since these countries were under Ottoman rule. Some of them, Israel in particular, did not even have names 100 years ago, let alone their present-day borders. But such a Turkey remains and, what is more, as a member of NATO and participant member of the EU. Its attitude toward Israel over the rivers of blood in Gaza in 2009 has led to its sudden assumption of the “moral leadership” in the Arab and Muslim world. In doing this, Turkey is making use of “Western values” rather than any “religious identity,” AND THUS ASSUMING THE “MORAL LEADERSHIP” WHETHER IT WISHES TO OR NOT, forcing the Middle East equation to change. (It may take some time for America and the players in the Middle East to grasp and digest this.)

From Munich to Baku: 360 degrees in foreign policy with Babacan...
IN THE NEAR FUTURE, TURKEY WILL BE THE “FOCAL POINT” IN INTERNATIONAL POLICY AND INTERNATIONAL BALANCES. We saw the clues to this at Munich. The Caucasian dimension of Turkish foreign policy may soon give birth to interesting developments... There is no need to chase anyone else. They are coming and will come to you.

God has promised God has promised "forgiveness and an immense reward" (Surat al-Fath: 29) to His servants who believe, who are compassionate towards other people and engage in righteous deeds. This book is a summons to all men and women to think about what true mercy is and to reconsider to what extent they are imbued with the good values of the Qur’an which demonstrate mercy.
The Equivalent of 25 Encyclopedic Volumes of Information Contained in DNA Cannot Have Emerged by Chance
In a single human DNA molecule, there is sufficient information to fill one million printed pages. All this information has a very important sequence. Just think; if we typed millions of letters at random on sheets of paper, and if all these letters then turned into words and then formed an article like those in the pages of a newspaper, could we claim that this was all the result of blind chance? Of course not! Yet according to the Darwinist mindset, it is indeed possible for such an extraordinary event to take place by chance-not just once, but many times!
