A sign for them is the dead land which We bring to life and from which We bring forth grain of which they eat. We place in it gardens of dates and grapes, and cause springs to gush out in it, so they may eat its fruits – they did not do it themselves. So will they not be thankful? Glory be to Him Who created all the pairs: from what the earth produces and from themselves and from things unknown to them. (Qur’an, 36:33-36)
Everyone capable of reason and thought can see the lack of logic in the evolutionist claim of chance forming living things. Let’s examine this fallacy with an analogy from daily life:
When you want to create the picture of a flower on your computer, at your disposal there are various programs, which have been developed by trained experts. Your computer is designed to use these programs to let you color the flower and create patterns on it. By themselves, however, even the most advanced computer and the best program available are not enough. Think back to basics: You also need to switch on the computer, use the program and give the right commands to create the image of the flower. No one viewing a picture on a computer screen would ever imagine that the picture got there by itself. Certainly it has been created by someone. It is also certain that the computer has been constructed in a factory, and that all its parts have been individually manufactured.
In the same way, it’s not possible that the plants in your yard, the grass, the roses and trees in the gardens have come into being of their own accord. Moreover, it is equally impossible for these plants to put all their essential characteristics into their seeds and start reproducing from these seeds, because all the information contained in seeds certainly requires intelligence and knowledge.
It is a Supreme Power that loads the information into seeds of diverse structure, gives them their shape, installs their coats and protective membranes, and enables them to grow into plants perfect in every respect. This power is that of God, Lord of all the worlds, Who knows all things. God creates all plants, shapes them, gives them their smell, taste and color. In a verse of the Qur’an, God makes this known to us:
And soaring date-palms with layered spathes, as provision for Our servants; by it We brought a dead land to life. That is how the Emergence will take place. (Qur’an, 50:10-11)
