On March 17, 2009 issue of Wall Street Journal website, an article by Andrew Higgins titled “An Islamic Creationist Stirs a New Kind of Darwinian Struggle” in which he featured Mr. Adnan Oktar is posted. In the article in question, it is noteworthy that Dawkins’s supposed reason for not meeting with the author is that “he is not knowledgeable about zoology and biology.” This is obviously an excuse because Dawkins often meets with middle school children and evangelical priests to discuss his claim. So, what we have to ask is this:
Are the children that Dawkins meets with for discussions experts on zoology and biology? Is the priest he discussed the subject with a professor of zoology and biology? Of course not. These examples alone are enough to expose Dawkins’ insincerity. Dawkins usually meets and debates with people such as these because he is only able to cope with them.
Another question mark comes to mind. Dawkins uses his claim that Mr. Adnan Oktar does not know about zoology as an excuse not to debate with him, but at the same time, he never seems to put down Adnan Oktar’s Atlas of Creation, a book that shook the world. At every available opportunity, he organizes meetings, attends meetings organized by others, deliberately puts the Atlas of Creation on the agenda, collects people around him and makes comments on the book. He does his best to criticize (in his own eyes) the author’s works, although he absolutely declines to meet with him. The way Dawkins is so reluctant to enter into a debate with Mr. Adnan Oktar, despite all the latter’s calls, but still tries to respond (in his own eyes) to the author’s views, and produces analyses on this matter, shows just how alarmed he is by the author’s works. The only reason that Dawkins refuses to meet with Mr. Adnan Oktar is that HE HAS BEEN TOTALLY DEFEATED AND HAS NO ANSWER TO GIVE.
