On 5 April, 2008, Scotland’s award-winning weekly The Sunday Herald announced the presence of Atlas of Creation in Scots Universities under the headline “Islamic Creationist Book Hits Scottish Universities.” The report, written in panic-filled language, went on to say that academics had “concerns that they may appear in schools as well.”
The way that the book, which is full of pictures of fossils and provides hundreds of proofs that evolution never happened, has caused such great unease, and that its arrival is expected with enormous dread, shows the powerful impact it has had. The convincing evidence submitted in Atlas of Creation is a means whereby students exposed to a one-sided, Darwinist education come to see the truth—a development that the adherents of materialist philosophy never expected.
The demolition of the theory of evolution with powerful and impressive evidence and the message contained in it, which is accessible to anyone even skimming through a few pages, have greatly alarmed those who hide behind the evolution deceit. The reactions seen in France and Belgium have now been repeated in Scotland. Even the possibility that the book might be on its way is enough to panic the devotees of evolution. This is without doubt an indication of evolutionists’ intellectual defeat.
The report then went on to say the following about Atlas of Creation:
“Seven copies of the lavishly-produced Atlas of Creation by Harun Yahya have arrived at the University of Edinburgh, while the University of Glasgow has received two, leading to concerns that they may appear in schools as well…
‘I find it quite staggering,’ said Aubrey Manning, emeritus professor of natural history at the University of Edinburgh. He houses his seven copies in a cupboard in the zoology department’s staff room. ‘Every academic I know says they’ve got one of those…’
It states that ‘there exists not a single example within 100 million fossils related to 250,000 species catalogued by scientists until today that supports evolution’.
It goes further in linking a belief in evolution to modern evils.
Under a picture of the collapsing Twin Towers, a caption reads: ‘No matter what ideology they may espouse, those who perpetrate terror all over the world are, in reality, Darwinists. Darwinism is the only philosophy that places value on – and thus encourages – conflict.’
Harun Yahya is the pen name of Adnan Oktar, an Istanbul-based writer. Under his pseudonym, Oktar has produced hundreds of books, videos and articles…
Islamic theologian Amanullah De Sondy, of the University of Glasgow, said…: ‘What he’s [Oktar] always trying to do is show how Islam is far superior to everything else… It’s very cleverly done’…”
