The Obvious Truth: Creation

As science demolishes the theory of evolution which seeks to explain forms of life as chance developments, it demonstrates in the process that there is a perfect creation in nature. All living things came into being by God's creation.

The theory of evolution maintains that life is the work of "chance". However, all the scientific evidence we have reviewed in this book shows that this is untrue and life is created with a design too superior to be explained away by chance.



The creation of man in the mother's womb is a miracle on its own. The union of the sperm and the ovum forms a living cell. Then this cell multiplies. The multiplying cells start to differentiate by a secret order. They are arranged and ordered to form bones, eyes, the heart, vessels or the skin. At the end of this intricate process, a single cell turns into a perfect human being. Referring to this creation, God calls out to man:

"O man! What has deluded you in respect of your Noble Lord? He Who created you and formed you and proportioned you and assembled you in whatever way He willed." (Surat al-Infitar: 6-8)

The belief in "chance" was born in the 19th century, when life was supposed to be simple, and it was carried into the 20th century for ideological purposes. Today, however, the scientific community acknowledges how nonsensical this claim is, and a great number of scientists admit that life is the work of a superior Creator. Chandra Wickramasinghe describes the reality he faced as a scientist who had been inculcated into believing in the myth of "chance" for years:


Honeybees display an extraordinary architectural skill. The hexagonal cells they build are based on complex mathematical calculations. They use a system whereby they can do the maximum storage with the minimum material. The interesting aspect of the cells is that honeybees start to build the cells from different points and meet in the middle. However, there is no discord at the intersection point. This situation shows that bees are governed from a single centre. God states in the Qur'an that bees act upon His inspiration:

"Your Lord inspired the bees: 'Build dwellings in the mountains and the trees, and also in the structures which men erect. Then eat from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord, made easy for you to follow.' From their bellies comes a drink of varying colours, containing healing for mankind. There is certainly a sign in that for people who reflect." (Surat an-Nahl: 68-69)

From my earliest training as a scientist, I was very strongly brainwashed to believe that science cannot be consistent with any kind of deliberate creation. That notion has had to be painfully shed. At the moment, I can't find any rational argument to knock down the view which argues for conversion to God. We used to have an open mind; now we realize that the only logical answer to life is creation-and not accidental random shuffling.70


The mosquito has an "ultraviolet vision" system that enables it to locate its prey at night. Its sting, through which it sucks blood, is a complicated tool made up of 6 blades. It is furnished with special secretions that prevent the blood it sucks from coagulating and that are even capable of anesthetizing the human nervous system. With its superior design, even a single mosquito is obvious evidence for creation. God states in the Qur'an:

"God is not ashamed to make an example of a gnat or of an even smaller thing. As for those who believe, they know it is the truth from their Lord." (Surat al-Baqara: 26)

One does not need to visit biochemistry laboratories or fossil beds to be able to see this obvious truth. Anyone may see the fact of creation in any part of the world he examines by using his conscience and reason. He can easily understand the infinite wisdom, knowledge and power of his Creator by simply thinking how he grew into a human being who is able to read and understand these lines considering that he was just a drop in the beginning.


In the Qur'an, God says "Have they not looked at the camel - how it was created?" (Surat al-Gashiyah: 17). When we look at the camel, we see that this animal is specially created for desert conditions. It has a metabolism that enables it to live without water for weeks, it has special tissues to protect its body from the burning sand, and it has even special eyebrow systems that will curtain its eyes against sand storms.

No one came to this world by chance. God, the Lord of all the worlds, created the entire universe and all of mankind. God describes His creative power in the Qur'an, which He sent down to people as a guide.

Mankind! An example has been made, so listen to it carefully. Those whom you call upon besides God are not even able to create a single fly, even if they were to join together to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! They do not measure God with His true measure. God is All-Powerful, Almighty. (Surat al-Hajj: 73-74)

They said 'Glory be to You! We have no knowledge except what You have taught us.
You are the All-Knowing, the All-Wise.'
(Surat al-Baqara: 32)
