Of course, the evolutionist confessions collected in this book represent only a very small fraction of those that could be found. Evolutionists, who have had to make such clear and honest admissions despite their dogmatic devotion to their theory, are in an even worse state when it comes to their internal thoughts. The famous American professor of biochemistry Michael Behe summarizes the condition of such scientists:
So far, someone may have remained loyal to materialism and Darwinism and so, have set out his beliefs and perspective on life in accord with that philosophy and theory. He may even have spent decades in defending this theory and ideology, have written books and articles on the subject and held seminars and courses on it. But as Professor Behe states above, advances in science have clearly set out the true facts. Science has revealed that evolutionists are unable and never will be able to account for a single protein, in other words, for the beginning of life. Some 300 million fossils have been discovered, but not a single intermediate fossil has emerged from them. Microbiology, paleontology, molecular biology, genetics and all other branches of science defy evolution. The whole world now knows the invalidity of the theory of evolution and that it is being propped up solely through deception, conjecture, propaganda and fraud. It has been realized that there is an immaculate artistry in living things, and that the whole universe was created from nothing, with this glorious beauty, equilibrium, complexity and artistry in a wondrous creation.
Evolutions are now very well aware that “deliberately denying the facts” after having seen this evidence and the findings of science just humiliates them before the eyes of the whole world. The world famous British writer and philosopher Malcolm Muggeridge expresses the matter as follows:
When even evolutionist scientists admit that the theory of evolution has no scientific and rational basis, blindly defending the theory on their behalf will doubtless represent the greatest irrationality and waste.
Up to here, we have set out how evolution is at variance with the scientific facts, how even the theory's adherents admit as much, and that the theory is therefore an enormous error. What's really important, however, is that this error is not merely a scientific one. A person may believe in a theory that is physically incorrect-for example, that the atom cannot be subdivided, a belief that was widely held at one time. But when findings show this to be incorrect, that person will have made merely a scientific error.
The position is very different, however, when it comes to the theory of evolution, because this theory was not put forward basing on scientific evidence. This theory attempts to answer the question of how we came into existence and stands solely on an ideological basis. It offers an atheistic answer, for which reason it leads to atheism most of those who believe in it, and to deny the existence of Allah. They continue to espouse these lies of evolution for these ideological reasons, at the price of embarrassing themselves, engaging in fraud, supporting deception and knowingly misleading people in the face of the scientific evidence. But the fact is that they know full well that reason and science show the existence of Allah and that He is the Creator of the universe and all living things.
Those who come to harbor doubts about, or deny the almighty existence of Allah by falling prey to this false theory, are ignorantly being led into a terrible error and eternal destruction. Therefore, those who believe in the theory of evolution, especially under the influence of various scientists, and who devote themselves to it blindly, must seriously reconsider their position. They must see how the evolutionists they have adopted as their guides have bound themselves to a fraud that not even children would take seriously for the sake of denying Allah, and must see how they have been deceived and what a terrible situation they have fallen into. And they must ask this of every evolutionist who supposedly claims to have come up with evidence; can you account for the formation of one single protein? The answer, now and for ever, will be “no.” Because a single protein refutes and annihilates the theory of evolution.
People who have hitherto espoused evolution out of a lack of knowledge must now realize that in the life of this world that one can repent having fallen under the influence of another person. One may be misled out of ignorance, but when such a person sees the truth he may hope to rectify himelf by abandoning his error. And indeed, all people must hope to be freed from errors, corrupt beliefs and ideas as long as they live. After death, however, blaming anyone else for the errors into which one fell will serve absolutely no purpose.
Every ideological movement opposed to reality and truth naturally has its own leaders and theoreticians, as is revealed by Allah in the Qur'an: "We made them leaders, summoning to the Fire, and on the Day of Rising they will not be helped." (Surat al-Qasas, 41) Those who follow such leaders and thus come closer to denial have rejected with a terrible stubbornness and hatred the truths vouchsafed to them in this world. In the hereafter, they will curse the guides and leaders whom they followed, will want them to be punished in the very lowest pit of Hell, and will feel a sincere regret at not having followed along Allah's path.
Their regret is described in these terms in the Qur'an:
... when they are all gathered together in it, the last of them will say to the first, ‘Our Lord, those are the ones who misguided us, so give them a double punishment in the Fire.’ He will say, ‘Each will receive double. But you do not know it.’ (Surat al-A’raf, 38)
They will say on the Day their faces are rolled over in the Fire, "If only we had obeyed Allah and obeyed the Messenger!" And they will say, "Our Lord, we obeyed our masters and great men and they misguided us from the Way. Our Lord, give them double the punishment and curse them many times over!" (Surat al-Ahzab, 66-68)
The only reason why some people still try to keep the theory of evolution alive is to keep alive materialism, a philosophy based on denial of Allah. Hitherto, people may have believed this lie of evolution, either through ignorance or through propaganda. But if they are honest, they must see the truth that such a dogma will result in humiliation in this world and in the hereafter, and must then act accordingly. The truth, in other words Creation, is so manifest that everything we see, even our own bodies, the Sun that rises in such glory every day, a single drop of rain or even a single protein is sufficient for us to grasp this evident reality. If they are honorable and honest men of science and ideas, then they must abandon this error, of which they are in fact all too well aware, and heed the voice of their conscience instead, they must behave in a civilized and respectful way by saying, "We went along with a lie, as if we had been bewitched." This should not humiliate them. On the contrary, it will be a means whereby they enjoy great esteem, both today and in the future.
Honesty and sincerity will receive a fine reward in this world and in the hereafter. Any other behavior may be rewarded by endless suffering. Allah tells us that it is always possible to abandon denial, but that those who persist in it will face eternal punishment:
... except for those who repent and put things right and make things clear. I turn towards them. I am the Ever-Returning, the Most Merciful. But as for those who disbelieve and die while they are disbelievers, the curse of Allah is upon them and that of the angels and all humanity. They will be under it for ever. The punishment will not be lightened for them. They will be granted no reprieve. (Surat al-Baqara, 160-162)
