The influence of Harun Yahya"s books on evolution, and especially his internationally renowned The Evolution Deceit, is reflected in the well-known scientific evolutionary magazine Science.
In an article in the May 18 edition by Robert Koenig, entitled "Creationism Takes Root Where Europe, Asia Meet," the author gives a lengthy account of Harun Yahya"s struggle against the deception of the theory of evolution, the international success of his book The Evolution Deceit and of the defeat of evolutionists in Turkey. The article emphasizes that this broad academic endeavor-"One of the world"s strongest anti-evolution movements outside North America"-aims to cause the collapse of the theory of evolution on the scientific front, and that it is making inroads in other Muslim countries.
Another topic dealt with in this article is the international success of The Evolution Deceit. It says that some evolutionist scientists in Turkey complain that "books by Harun Yahya such as The Evolution Deceit have become more influential than textbooks in certain parts of Turkey". In the article, the concerns of Turkish evolutionists are expressed in these words "…Many evolutionist scientists fear they are losing ground to creationists in public opinion".
