In this book, we explained the not so well known aspects of the army
inside you, that is, your defence system. We have deliberately directed
attention away from the complicated details of the extraordinary jobs
the defence cells do to "how" the system operates. We searched for the
answer to the question: "How can such minute cells which can be viewed
only under an electron microscope produce such a complicated system as
the defence system?" We delved further and examined how these cells, which
make up the immune system were initially formed.
All cells of the immune system are initially normal cells, which go through
different educative stages ending with a "Sufficiency Exam". Only those
cells that are able to recognise enemy cells and do not conflict with
other normal bodily cells are allowed to live. How and when was the first
cell developed and who held the first "sufficiency exam"? Who has taught
the cell what to do?
It is clearly unexpected that cells and associated organs can converse
freely with each other, work in total agreement, make plans, and implement
these plans efficiently. Do not forget that the topic of discussion here
is numerous bodily organs and one trillion cells. It is impossible to
imagine that one trillion people could be organised in such a perfect
way and fulfill their duties without anything being skipped, forgotten,
or confused, or any kind of chaos being caused in the mounting of such
a defence, which is a supremely difficult task.
There is a definite reality, which must be accepted, and that is: Allah
Who possesses endless power, knowledge and wisdom has specially created
cells, as well as everything in the universe without exception, from the
smallest to the biggest.
... He created all things and He has knowledge
of all things. (Surat al-An'am: 101)
This self-evident fact has been revealed in this book once again for
all to see.
We mentioned that the unborn child in the mother's womb completes the
missing components of its own defence system with the help of the antibodies
received from its mother. However, if such possibilities were not available,
or if these deficiencies continued following the child's birth, it would
be impossible for the baby to survive. As we have repeatedly emphasised,
given that mankind and countless other life forms are in existence today,
this would mean that the defence system has been present from the very
outset of life in its complete and fully functional form. It simply could
not have been evolved in stages. It is a total impossibility that such
an intensely complex system composed of interconnected, interdependent
components, cells and elements could have been formed through minute coincidences
over a period of millions of years.
Any person who suggests that everything has been formed through coincidences
and refuses to accept that a "Creator" has created the entire universe,
despite his awareness of the functioning of one or more than one miraculous
system among numerous others continuously at work in his body, is also
unaware that he has been mentioned in a clearly defined character type
in the Qur'an some 1,400 years ago. Allah has revealed in the Qur'an that
such people are unable to comprehend even clear and open realities due
to deficiencies in their perception and comprehension:
... They have hearts they do not understand with.
They have eyes they do not see with. They have ears they do not hear with...
(Surat al-A'raf: 179)
Allah has again revealed that these people are actually aware of this
They say, 'Our hearts are covered up against what
you call us to and there is a heaviness in our ears. There is a screen
between us and you...' (Surat al-Fussilat: 5)
Another group of disbelievers do see the realities presented, but proceed
to deliberately hide the truth of what they have seen. This is the sole
reason for the countless theories relating to the theory of evolution.
The moment they accept the existence and majesty of Allah, they are obliged
to submit to His will, which is an extremely difficult proposition for
arrogant people. The Qur'an again sheds light on the plight of such people
who take up a stance of an ignorant arrogance against Allah:
They repudiated them wrongly and haughtily, in
spite of their own certainty about them (Surat an-Naml: 14)
There are those who, for the sake of denying the existence of Allah,
struggle to uphold the falsehood of evolution with a variety of theories
that are far from any scientific or logical basis. Such is their determination
that they defend their views with extremely ridiculous examples, claiming
that such a sophisticated and complex system such as the immune system
has developed in stages from a single antibody.
Those scientists who have become aware of the situation they are in have
started to distance themselves from evolutionary associations, realizing
the shameful nature of such explanations.
Another group of scientists accept the theory of evolution, not because
it is accurate and they believe in it, but because there is no other theory
to support their denial of Allah's existence.
However, there is no obligation to accept and follow a certain theory.
When people become curious about the creation of the universe and its
contents, it will be sufficient for them to assess the self-evident truths
objectively and with a free mind.
As we have continuously stressed in this book, there is not a shred of
evidence based on any trials, experiments or observations that could support
the claims of the theory of evolution. Scientific disciplines such as
biology, biochemistry, microbiology, genetics, palaeontology and anatomy
have made it clear that the theory of evolution is an imaginary hypothesis
about events which have never taken place and nor can ever take place.
(See the chapter on "The Deception of Evolution").
Today, all research carried out in various branches of science, shows
that all living and non-living beings on the earth and in the sky have
been created by an All-Powerful and Almighty Creator Who possesses eternal
wisdom, knowledge and might. To see this fact, and to understand the fictitious
nature of fabricated theories, such as that of evolution, advanced technology
or scientific knowledge is not necessarily required. Allah has displayed
the evidence of His existence and creation for everyone who has a clear
mind and conscience to see, irrespective of which historical era he lives
in, be it the dark ages or the middle ages:
In the creation of the heavens and earth, and the
alternation of the night and day, and the ships which sail the seas to
people's benefit, and the water which Allah sends down from the sky -
by which He brings the earth to life when it was dead and scatters about
on it creatures of every kind - and the varying direction of the winds,
and the clouds subservient between heaven and earth, there are Signs for
people who use their intellect. (Surat al-Baqara: 164)
The duty that falls to those people of understanding, who can grasp the
above verse fully, is to constantly recall the obvious "fact of creation"
evident in the whole universe from the cells to giant galaxies, by quoting
the following words of the Qur'an;
Your Lord is the Lord of the heavens and the
earth, He Who brought them into being. I am one of those who bear witness
to that. (Surat al-Anbiya': 56)
