Adnan Oktar’s Atlas of Creation was again mentioned by the 150,000-circulation Spanish daily El Periodico on 11 May, 2008:
… Adnan Oktar, author of the 700-page, 5-kilo Atlas of Creation under the pen-name Harun Yahya, had inspired fierce debates by sending the book, which strongly opposes Darwinism and evolution, to a wide range of Spanish universities last year…
No creationist voices had hitherto been much heard in Europe, but the way that Atlas of Creation has appeared in the European press just about every day for the last year, reveals the book’s huge impact. By means of this book, Europe has for the first time questioned the theory of evolution and been convinced that creation is a clear truth. By the will of Allah, Atlas of Creation will continue to be referred to as the book that demolishes materialist and Darwinist philosophy in Europe in the years to come.
