THE DAJJAL'S PLOTTING HAS COME TO AN END - 1
The life of this world is a transient thing in which good and bad, beauty and ugliness appear, by their actions in which human beings are tested, and in which believers and non-believers are distinguished from one another. Almighty Allah, Who has created all beings and this testing, has also created an enemy in the form of a denier and wrong-doer to confront believers as part of the test. This denier, who confronted prophets, messengers and believers throughout the history, at a time when the hadiths of the Prophet (saas) tell us the Prophet ‘Isa (as) is expected to return to Earth, in the End Times in other words, will be the "Dajjal," or the Antichrist.
Dajjal is an Arabic word, derived from the root "dajl." Dictionaries define Dajjal as "liar, fraud, a seditious and damned person who confuse the minds, hearts, good and bad, the right and the wrong, who hides the real face of something by gilding it, who wanders everywhere."
The hadiths refer to the Dajjal as the greatest negative force to appear in the end of times. The Dajjal, who will attempt to rule the system of satan by means on enmity towards the messenger of Allah in the End Times when extraordinary events take place, is perhaps one of the worst deniers of all time. Our Prophet (saas) describes the dimension of the corruption of the Dajjal as follows:
"There would be no creation (creating more trouble) than the Dajjal right from the creation of Adam to the Last Hour." [i]
It is narrated in traditions that the Dajjal is a deceiver who portrays truth as falsity and falsity as truth, and good as bad and bad as good. As we are told in the hadith "He will also have Paradise and Hell with him. Though his Paradise will appear as Paradise, in reality it will be Hell, and likewise, though his Hell will appear like Hell, in reality it will be Paradise." [ii], everything he calls beautiful is actually an evil that will inflict disaster on humanity. And the values he depicts as evil are actually beneficial and in the interests of humanity. Yet since some people do not look at events in the light of the moral values of the Qur’an and the Sunnah of the Prophet (saas), they will be misled by the things to which the Dajjal invites them and will follow him, while heedlessly turning their backs on the path of Allah, which they should actually follow. They will see what a grave error that is thanks to the climate of oppression the Dajjal will establish. It is for these reasons that our Prophet (saas) has warned mankind and told people to act in the knowledge that what the Dajjal portrays as evil is in fact good:
"The Dajjal will appear.And there will be along with him water and fire.What the people will see as water will be burning fire.And what will appear as fire will be water.Any one of you who will see that should plunge in that which he sees as fire for it will be sweet, pure water." [iii]

[iii] Sahih Muslim
Molecules: The Source Of Flavor And Beauty
Many substances look different and have different features although they include the same atoms. What do you think makes objects around you different? What makes them different in terms of their color, shape, smell and taste, and what makes them soft or hard? The reason for all of these distinctive differences is that their atoms constitute different chemical bonds to form molecules.
Following atoms, which are the first step on the way to substance, molecules are the second step. Molecules are the smallest units which determine the chemical features of a substance. Some of these small structures consist of one or more atoms, but some of them consist of thousands of atom groups. The diversity we see around us arises because molecules come together in different ways. We can see this by giving examples from our senses of taste and smell.
Indeed, concepts like "taste" and "smell" are nothing more than perceptions created in our sense organs by different molecules. The smells of foods, drinks, and various fruits and flowers all consist of volatile molecules, an example of which we see in the small picture on the right. Atoms form living and non-living substances and also give matter its taste and beauty. How does this ever happen?
Volatile molecules like vanilla and tulip scents penetrate the receptors of tiny hairs in the region of the nose called the epithelium and interact with these receptors. This interaction is perceived as scent in our brain. Similarly, there are four different types of chemical receptors at the front part of the human tongue. These correspond to the salty, sweet, sour and bitter tastes. The molecules that come to the receptors of all our sense organs are perceived as chemical signals by our brain.
Today, it is understood how taste and smell are perceived and how they are made. Yet, scientists cannot reach a consensus on why some substances smell more while some others smell less, or why some of them smell bad while some others smell pleasant.
The existence of taste and smell is not a fundamental need for human beings. However, hundreds of kinds of delicious fruits and vegetables, with their enticing scents, and thousands of kinds of flowers with different colors, shapes and smells, all come out of the soil. All of them add a distinctive beauty to our world as products of a magnificent art.
From this point of view, color and smell, like all other blessings, are two of those beauties that Allah, the Most Gracious and Glorious, bestows on people without measure. The absence of these two senses only would be enough to make man's life tasteless. In return for all these blessings given to him, what befalls on a man is certainly to try to be a servant of Allah, Who encompasses him with His knowledge.
THE CORRUPTION CAUSED BY DARWINIST EDUCATION
Darwinism is the philosophical basis for much of the conflict in the world. The theory of evolution claims that living species came into being from a single cell (for the formation of which Darwinists have no scientific explanation) by undergoing constant and random changes over the course of time. One of the main elements in this supposed change and progress is conflict. This ruthless ideology, which maintains that living things can only advance through conflict, is based on the strong eliminating the weak. The way that the heretical religion of Darwinism was launched as a supposedly scientific theory and was included on school curricula across the world resulted in a mass deception and perverted Darwinist ideas spread right through society. This ended in countless disasters in which millions of people lost their lives.
The conspicuous causes of the wars, suffering, shortages, devastation and repression that took place in the last century are atheist and materialist ideologies such as communism and fascism. Many people were killed, forced from their homes, left to starve or subjected to inhumane treatment by the servants of these ideologies. When we look at the foundations of these superstitious ideologies, the bloody materialist philosophy we see is always the same; Darwinism. Communism, fascism and all ideologies that espouse terrorism make use of the heretical philosophy of Darwinism in order to deceive the public. Brains shaped over the years by Darwinist ideas become literally bewitched by the teachings of this superstitious religion and its ways of thinking, including about the true origin of life, are damaged by its irrational interpretations. As a result, under the influence of this bloody ideology, everyone’s brains are literally hypnotized and become, knowingly or otherwise, the enactors of the rituals of the heretical religion that is Darwinism.
Darwinism Lies at the Root of Bloodshed, Terror and Violence
Certain circles that wish to make the world a place of bloody struggle and lead innocent masses of people into civil conflict have come up with a satanic way of implementing their very dangerous ideas; to make the unscientific teachings of Darwinism a part of the education system. In this way, young minds are taught in the framework of destructive ideas right from the beginning. Minds convinced that there is a ruthless struggle in nature, that the strong must eliminate the weak and that this is part of life, that the sick, weak and elderly are supposed embarrassments for society and that these groups must absolutely be done away with gradually begin regarding selfishness, ruthlessness and cruelty as perfectly normal. They begin to perceive these as a precondition for progress. They turn away from altruism, humanity, love and compassion. Because for them these are all obstacles that hold back the so-called process of evolution. Since they imagine there is no purpose to the lives they lead, they see no need, in their own eyes, for such moral virtues as altruism and self-sacrifice. They regard violence as legitimate. They regard it as quite normal to oppress, wrong, inflict physical harm and even kill. This means that young minds subjected to Darwinist education become prone to adopting all kinds of separatist, destructive and violent ideas. One of the most important points here is this; the Darwinist definition of man as a species of animal that advanced as the result of chance and through violence is the rejection of belief in the Hereafter, where people will be held to account and spend their eternal lives, by rejecting the obvious existence of our Creator, Almighty Allah. The way they shape the lives of human societies that forget Allah, the sole possessor of power, according to the teachings of the heretical religion of Darwinism, falsely imagining they will not be called to account for their cruelty, ruthlessness and mercilessness, results in suffering, tears and torment.
The results of the imposition in the last century of Darwinism on vast masses of people through the education system were terribly bloody ones. Ideologies such as fascism and communism were imposed in this way, and despite people’s horrendous experiences of them, they continued to find supporters through the pressure from the Darwinist dictatorship.
Hundreds of thousands of people lost their lives in the concentration camps because they were regarded as a so-called weak evolutionary link. For that same reason, people were forced from their homes and left to starve, and a climate of poverty that embraced the world emerged. Peoples who had lived in peace and harmony for hundreds of years now began regarding one another as supposed species of animal. As a consequence, conflicts erupted and lands where peace and harmony had reigned for centuries were now drenched in blood. It would be a graver error to regard a few perverted dictators or ruthless rulers as the sole cause for everything that happened, because in every period when such atrocities took place, masses of people who had been brainwashed by being taught the superstitious religion of Darwinism gave wide support to the oppressors. For instance, it was not Hitler alone who planned to eliminate the old, the sick and the Jews in Nazi Germany. Mao and Lenin were not alone as they engaged in repression that ruthlessly oppressed and slaughtered millions. Nor was King Leopold II of Belgium the only person guilty of thousands of people in the Congo being regarded as animals because of the color of their skins and put to forced labor, dying under the very harsh conditions. And it is not just a few rebels who were responsible for the recent genocide in Ruanda, the years of civil unrest in Sierra Leone or the civil war in Guinea. All the atrocities cited in all these regions are rooted in Darwinism and were supported by the adherents of Darwinism.
Therefore, if there is terror, bloodshed, anarchy or innocent people being killed in any region in the world, it is impossible to think of this independently of Darwinism. If we want an end to terror and bloodshed, then the most effective means of securing this is by describing the invalidity of Darwinism and showing people, with full supporting scientific evidence, that Darwinism has collapsed. This also applies to the separatist terror that has raged for years in Southeast Turkey. Because as with all the communist terror ever perpetrated, the terrorism of the PKK is nourished by the philosophy of Darwinism. One can see this quite clearly from statements by the leader of that separatist terrorist organization:
| There is little difference between man and the animal species closest to him. He eats what he finds ready in nature, and shelters in an unorganized manner in trees and hollows. But with the acquisition of the ability to speak and think there will inevitably be solidarity with other members of the species in collecting food, defense against OTHER ANIMALS, protection against natural disasters and the development of various primitive stone tools. Until that stage, THE LAW OF BIOLOGICAL EVOLUTIONS, WHICH APPLIES AMONG ANIMALS, prevails.
(Kurdish Humanism and the New Man, Istanbul, April 2001, p. 13)
| MAN IS THE MOST ADVANCED SOCIALIZED FORM OF ANIMAL. Man is the wildest animal and the most ruthless animal.
(Kurdish Humanism and the New Man, Istanbul, April 2001, p. 106)
Darwinist Education Continues to Be a Scourge on World Societies
Denying and remaining insensitive to the link between Darwinism and terror means denying the existence of terror and anarchy and being insensitive to them. An intellectual struggle against Darwinism, which denies the existence of Almighty Allah and encourages war, terror, slaughter, degeneration and immorality, is essential. The psychological damage inflicted on young people by the teaching of the superstitious religion of Darwinism in schools leads to social massacre and individual despair. There have recently been horrifying cases of several young people killing other students they regarded as weak and powerless, supposedly in the name of contributing to Darwinism and speeding up the evolutionary process. One example of this reflected in the press was the student massacre that took place in Finland.
On 7 November, 2007, a student at the Jokela High School in the Finland by the name of Eric Auvinen killed himself after murdering 9 fellow-students. Auvinen justified this bloody incident on video as follows:
|"I am just a normal anarchist that believes in natural selection. Humans need to put natural selection back on tracks. The animals live that way, why won’t the humans. We are animals after all. We were made that way now we just screw everything up and pollute the Earth that birthed us. Humans are the worst animals on the planet. We humans came up with a screwed up society. The whole world is screwed. All of the society shall fall. That is what should happen. The sooner, the better… Law is the opinion of the “higher in power”… That’s why you should take control of your own life. Live in anarchy. Do what you want and don’t let others tell you what to do. This is your own life. The weak should die while the strong live. It is survival of the fittest, natural selection. Animals die all the time. You don’t see some dog crying their eyes out after they figure out that some other dog died. Because another dog has died. Humans die too. It should be the same reaction. It is just all natural, not a big deal. Do not cry for someone you don’t know, this is not sad… I evolved one step further… My personal philosophy, THE GENOCIDE OF THE HUMAN RACE MUST HAPPEN.” (2)
(Capital letters in original text) (Pekka-Eric Auvinen's Video 'My Philosophy', http://www.liveleak.com/view?i=bb4_1194559199) (Capital letters in original text)
The Jokela High School massacre represents a clear instance of the tragic consequences that can result from teaching Darwinism to the young as if it were a scientific fact. Besides, this is not the only such bloody incident. On 20 April, 1999, two students at the Columbine High School in the US state of Colorado, 18-year-old Eric Harris and 17-year-old Dylan Klebold went to school carrying guns and bombs, and committed suicide after murdering 12 students and one teacher in 30 minutes. The T-shirt Harris wore during the attack had the words “NATURAL SELECTION” written on it. Most of the documents taken from Harris’s home after the attack referred to natural selection and feelings of superiority. In videos earlier uploaded onto the internet, Harris and Klebold constantly referred to themselves as supposedly “more evolved” and to how it felt to be “superhuman.”
Filling young minds with the perverted teachings of Darwinism gives rise to very bloody and ruthless consequences, as in these examples. The only way to protect young minds exposed to superstitious Darwinist indoctrination from the consequences of this bloody philosophy is anti-Darwinian and anti-materialist education. We must not forget that all that one-sided Darwinist education has brought the world is war, conflict, oppression, slaughter, hunger, poverty and terror. The theory of evolution consists of outdated and unscientific 19th century nonsense. It is pointless to teach evolution to the young as if it were scientific fact. What young people need to be taught about evolution is that modern scientific evidence and findings have proved that evolution is a lie. Students in schools need to be told about evolution in the same way as other historical errors, such as the way people used to think the Sun revolved around the Earth, or that the Earth was flat, or that the Earth was held aloft on the horns of oxen. Because evolution is an irrational myth, just like, or maybe even more than, them. And in contrast to them, evolution was not born out of ignorance, but is a deception deliberately put forward with the aim of turning people away from Allah.
- Young people need to be told clearly that Darwinism has no scientific explanation for the emergence of the first cell,
- How more than 250 million fossils so far unearthed refute evolution and prove creation by Allah,
- That the Earth is full of fossils that repudiate evolution,
- That all branches of science have exposed the invalidity of Darwinism and
- That Darwinism is a fanatical religion that has long since been discredited.
In this way, the snares of those who want to drown the world in blood, who benefit from conflict and violence, who encourage people in the direction of conflict and chaos, and who want ruthlessness and selfishness to rule the world will be thwarted, and as people live by the moral values Allah commands in the Qur’an, the world will become a lace of happiness and joy, peace and security.
A One-Man Movement in the Cause of Islam - 24.02.2007
An article introducing Adnan Oktar and his Atlas of Creation, which has elicited such global responses, appeared in the magazine Prabodhanam, published in Kerala, one of the largest of the Indian states. The magazine, published in the Malayalam language, told its readers about Adnan Oktar’s important activities across the world that have been continuing for many years now, under the heading "A One-Man Movement in the Cause of Islam." The issue concerned, which appeared on 24 February, 2007, also introduced its readers to the http://www.harunyahya.com web site.

Prophet Muhammed (saas) Fervor in Moscow / Samanyolu News / 15.03.2009
Russian Muslims wishing to attend the third ‘Mawlid al-Nabi’ held in the country’s capital, Moscow, were unable to all fit into the Kosmos Hotel. More than a thousand Russians, Tatars, Tajiks, Turkmen, Kyrgyz, Kazakhs, Daghestanis, Azeris and Chechnyans, old and young, rushed to attend a ceremony celebrating the birth of the Prophet Muhammad (saas) and his conception of peace, love and dialog.
At the celebrations, of which this year’s were the third, were supported by the Duma, the lower chamber of the Russian Parliament, Moscow Municipality, the Natural Science Institute, the Asian African Countries Institute and Moscow Islamic University Ravil Gaynuddin, president of the Russian Council of Muftis, said that Muslims in Russia had never lost their love for the Prophet Muhammad (saas) under the totalitarian regime. Gaynuddin stated: "Allah's holy envoy Muhammad (saas) was sent as a blessing to the worlds, and Russian Muslims maintained their love for the Prophet (saas) even under the totalitarian when religion was banned. They tried to learn about his legacy and Sunna and to heed his calls.”
Gaynuddin noted that people had worshiped at home under very difficult conditions, and went on to comment: “Russian Muslims are now free to perform their religious observances. Thanks be for these days when we are finally free to live by our faith. We can feel pride in these days when we are working for our faith to be better understood.”
Federal Council President Sergi Mironov sent a message of congratulation to the program, attended by many members of the lower chamber of the Russian Parliament, the Duma, and the Federal Council, the upper house. He said: “The Prophet Muhammad (saas) was an important historic leader. He was a great ruler and reformist, a military genius and religious preacher. He personally represented religious tolerance and lofty moral virtue.” In his message, Mironov emphasized that the strengthening spiritual unity among Russian Muslims would benefit multinational Russian society.”
It is certainly a cause for great rejoicing that Muslims in Russia are able to worship freely. People across the world have begun feeling a great sympathy and tolerance for Muslims and Islam as the moral values of the religion become better understood. As a result, many people have converted to Islam and begun studying the Qur’an and feeling a desire to be acquainted with Muslims.
By Allah's leave, as revealed in trustworthy hadith of our Prophet (saas), that rise will increase still further in the near future; people will better appreciate the fertility of Islamic moral values and the moral virtues of the Qur’an will spread across the world.
Allah gives Muslims these glad tidings in the Qur’an:
Allah has promised those of you who have faith and do right actions that He will make them successors in the land as He made those before them successors, and will firmly establish for them their religion with which He is pleased and give them, in place of their fear, security. ‘They worship Me, not associating anything with Me.’ Any who are unbelievers after that, such people are deviators. (Surat an-Nur, 55)
Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: 1.5 centimeters (0.6 in) (leg to leg ), 0.7 centimeters (0.28 in) (body)
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province, China
Period: Upper Jurassic
The oldest known fossil spider is of a water spider, 425 million years old. The fossil pictured is 156 to 150 million years old. Such fossils show that spiders have been the same for hundreds of million years. Darwinists have no consistent and scientific answer for these findings.
TURKEY: THE LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD
Your God is One God. There is no god but Him, the All-Merciful, the Most Merciful. ( Surat al-Baqara, 163)
For centuries, people who have failed to grasp Allah's greatness have worshipped what they considered to be “superior” and “powerful” beings, such as the Sun or stars. Furthermore, despite all their feebleness, some people even dared to declare themselves as deities. In the Qur'an, Allah gives the example of a man who argued with Prophet Ibrahim (as) about Allah's unity and power. Prophet Ibrahim (as) responded in the following terms:
What about the one who argued with Ibrahim about his Lord, on the basis that Allah had given him sovereignty? Ibrahim said: “My Lord gives life and causes to die.” He said: “I too give life and cause to die.” Ibrahim said; “Allah makes the Sun come from the East. Make it come from the West.” And the one who was an unbeliever was dumbfounded. Allah does not guide wrongdoing people. ( Surat al-Baqara, 258)
Setting up any other deity with Allah is not unique to previous peoples, for we see it even in our own time. While modern people do not worship the Sun, particular stars, or similar items, they worship people who are just as helpless as themselves or such concepts as beauty, wealth, and power. They devote their lives to acquiring wealth and never once wonder if Allah is pleased with them. They consider people, other beings, or particular objects as equal to Allah and so clearly associate partners with Him.
Given that Allah is the Creator, no one can make the Sun rise from the West, stop the universe from expanding, hold the heavens and Earth, or create a human being from nothing. Allah is the only God, for nothing that exists can be equal to the Creator. The Qur'an describes the weakness of those who associate partners with Allah, as follows:
O mankind! An example has been made, so listen carefully. Those whom you call upon besides Allah cannot create a single fly, even if they were to join together to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! ( Surat al-Hajj, 73)
... Or have they assigned partners to Allah who create as He creates, so that all creating seems the same to them? Say: “Allah is the Creator of everything. He is the One, the All-Conquering.”( Surat ar-Ra‘d, 16)
... The Messiah, ‘Isa son of Maryam, was only the Messenger of Allah and His Word, which He cast into Maryam, and a Spirit from Him. So believe in Allah and His Messengers. Do not say: “Three.” It is better that you stop. Allah is only One God. He is too Glorious to have a son! Everything in the heavens and in Earth belongs to Him. Allah suffices as a Guardian. ( Surat an-Nisa', 171)
What He Said
Azerbaycan Reyting newspaper, November 6-2008
Adnan Oktar: The whisperings of satan are such that we must not be delayed by them; it is as if we are going to sit down to dine, the table is laid, and we are worrying about where to put the chairs and the salad. There is no need to prolong the matter. It is obvious that the Turkish-Islamic Union will be very excellent and bring with it plenty, abundance and joy. We must have no dealings with lame excuses or pretexts. TURKEY, THEIR ELDER BROTHER, WILL EMBRACE THEM WITH LOVE AND AFFECTION. AND TURKEY IS ASKING TO RENDER THAT SERVICE, but stands to gain nothing from it itself. In other words, what is extraordinary about a father and his sons coming together and eating? Turkey is like a father, THE FATHER OR LEADER OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD. It is calling them all, all its children, to sit down at the table and dine together, and celebrate, and create a joyous environment.
TASCA, Turkish Arab Science, Culture and Art Association, November 21-2008
Adnan Oktar: It is ready. And the historic conditions make it essential. All the Islamic countries and Turkey are uncomfortable at present. Turkey is uncomfortable domestically; there is the PKK problem, and the high cost of living. The nation is unhappy, it has lost its joy. The same goes for Islamic countries. But that happens in all systems without a head. But if Turkey becomes their leader... Nobody can live without a head. Once a system with a head emerges, Turkey is a country that can play the role of leader very well. It has experience from Ottoman times. It has mature and well-trained work force. Turkey has a large and intelligent administrative class. This means a very successful force, a great strength. And nobody is objecting to it. Why should anyone object to Turkey if people will be happy and will enjoy great service and benefits from Turkey acting as elder brother and leader? This will be beneficial for Turkey such as; terror will come to a halt. Straight away. And Turkey will be enriched. But all the oppression in Islamic countries will stop. The suffering going on in Israel may not be felt anywhere else in the world. The Torah describes the suffering the Jews will endure. Many passages in the Torah state that they will live in terrible fear and suffering.
Hilal TV, December 27-2008
Adnan Oktar: I HAVE SO FAR SEEN NO ISLAMIC COUNTRY UNWILLING TO ACCEPT TURKISH LEADERSHIP. Nor have I to date seen any Turkic country unwilling to accept Turkish leadership. Kazakhstan has just said again that Turkey should be the leader. All the Turkic states want Turkey to be their leader. Azerbaijan is desperately keen. Even Armenia wants to unite with Turkey. Let us open our borders and be as one, they say. Of course they have been encouraged in the wake of my writings and these recipes and have subsequently taken up the idea. Armenia, Georgia and even Lithuania and Russia will be included in the Turkish Union, in the Turkish-Islamic Union, insha’Allah.

Joy in the East
Turkish-language slogans of support in Tehran
They realize our strength
The hadiths of our Prophet (saas) provide very detailed information and signs about the End Times, which will occur shortly before Doomsday. According to these reports, several highly significant events will take place one after the other during this period. In the first stage of the End Times, terrible corruption and chaos will rule; in the second stage, these will be replaced by peace and security as people come to live by true religious moral values.
Our Prophet (saas) imparted glad tidings regarding the Mahdi, who will be sent during the End Times. For example, this great individual will liberate Muslims from cruelty and suffering; eliminate corruption; and usher in an era of peace, justice, plenty, happiness, and well being. According to reliable hadiths, he will return Islam, which has been distorted via superstitions and practices, to its true essence; meet with Prophet ‘Isa (as); and, by Allah’s will, will enable Islam’s moral values to prevail on Earth.
Too small to be seen with the naked eye, DNA serves as the data bank of our cells. Information about all the living things around you is concealed within this miniaturized data bank inside every cell of every organism. All the structural characteristics of a rose, an orange, a sparrow, a tiger or a human being are present in the nuclei of the cells that comprise these organisms. Look at your hand that is holding this book. These data stores exist in the nucleus of every single one of the cells that compose that hand.
These DNA molecules are invisible to the naked eye but in terms of their contents and data-storage capacity, they are equal to a library consisting of tens of thousands of books. As you observe the miraculous aspects of DNA, which we can be seen only by magnifying it thousands of times, you will also appreciate how such this minute essential component of life places the theory of evolution in an insuperable quandary. Examining the details of this extraordinary structure will give you the opportunity to ponder the infinite might, incomparable knowledge, scope and dominion of our Lord, Allah (God) and the universe He has created.
However, at the time when Darwin launched his theory, the level of science was extremely backward. Not even the basic structure of the cell had been revealed, let alone the discovery of the helix structure and data capacity of the DNA molecule, which James Watson and Francis Crick revealed nearly 100 years after the publication of Darwin’s book The Origin of Species. Darwin had no means of foreseeing the advances that molecular biology would subsequently make. Clearly, his theory of evolution built on fundamentally flawed knowledge and hypotheses cannot account for the existence of a structure like DNA, which amazes scientists.
Life Comes From Life
The erroneous theory known as "spontaneous generation," which had been around since at least the Middle Ages, maintained that inanimate substances could by chance assamble to produce a living being. The idea that insects formed from food wastes or mice from wheat was widespread up, until the 18th century. Even in the 19th century, when Darwin wrote his book The Origin of Species, the scientific world still widely believed that bacteria could arise from inanimate matter.
In fact, however, only five years after Darwin published his book, Louis Pasteur announced his results after long studies and experiments, that disproved spontaneous generation, a cornerstone of Darwin's theory. In his triumphal lecture at the Sorbonne in 1864, Pasteur said: "Never will the doctrine of spontaneous generation recover from the mortal blow struck by this simple experiment." (Sidney Fox, Klaus Dose, Molecular Evolution and The Origin of Life, New York: Marcel Dekker, 1977. p. 2)
His findings revealed, once again, that life did not emerge spontaneously on Earth, but that it began with a miraculous creation.
