The Evolution Deceit
As this book has stressed, evolution and its supporters are totally trapped because science comprehensively rejects Darwinism. Evolutionists are aware of this and, as a result, are in a great panic. Thus they are attacking those who defend the truth of creation in discussion programs, panels, and everywhere else. But as they have no answers, they only try to regain the verbal high ground.
The logic of "Let's not confuse religion with science, for belief is one thing but the fact of evolution another" is intended to break Muslim unity and weaken their resistance in their own eyes. The true message of those who suggest this way of thinking is, "There is a real world, and this can be understood by means of science, which shows that there is no such thing as creation, although everyone is at liberty to have his or her own individual beliefs." But this is also a great deception, for it is an obvious fact that Allah created the universe and all living and non-living things. Every detail in the universe is another proof of His creation. In reality, there is no evidence for the theory of evolution other than "individual belief" and opinion. Muslims must be aware of the deceptive suggestion that tries to show that the truth of creation is also an "individual belief."
Such a suggestion is easily defeated, as we read in the following verse:
Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts right through it and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for what you portray! (Surat al-Anbiya', 18)
Behind some Muslims' efforts to reconcile evolution with religion lie the doubts, defeatism, lack of information, and uncertainty that they feel when confronted with evolution. Yet such defeatism is totally unnecessary, as evolutionists have no scientific backing or evidence with which to defend their theory. They engage in demagogy because of their dogmatic insistence on their theory, and try to silence their opponents by means of psychological pressure. Their position is actually hopeless.
Muslims who have been deceived by evolution cannot see this because they are unaware of the latest scientific developments. People who lack current information on the subject naturally believe the theory of evolution to be true. Lack of information can easily be resolved, however, through reading books and other publications on the subject. Muslims who have detailed information about the theory of evolution cannot remain silent or uncertain in the face of the evolutionists' claims. Along with this, thinking about Allah's creation and the flawless art permeating the universe, clinging tightly to the Qur'an, and understanding the nature of the truths revealed in the Qur'an are the easiest ways of freeing oneself from those influences.
Many Muslims may already accept and even defend evolution for the reasons given throughout this book. However, Islamic morality calls upon Muslims to head back to the true path the instant they realize that they have gone astray. Supporting Darwinist thinking before one comes to realize the serious harm that it can lead to is not at all the same thing as continuing to support it after one has realized the danger of doing so. One can support the theory without knowing the scale of the danger or its scientific invalidity. However, once one has learned the truth of the matter, the best and most virtuous thing to do is to go straight into action and support the intellectual struggle against this harmful theory. Allah tells Muslims:
Those who disbelieve are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do not act in this way (protect each other), there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption. (Surat al-Anfal, 73)
