Turkey is Now A Major Center Of Creationism

An article based on addresses given at the annual convention of Sociedad de Biología de Chile (Society of Biology of Chile) by the biologists Athel Cornish-Bowden and María Luz Cárdenas evaluated the global influence of Creationism. The 10-page paper in the scientific journal Biological Research, published in 2007, noted that creationist belief had spread in Western Europe, particularly in England, Germany and Poland, and in Brazil and other Latin American countries. It attached particular weight to the impact of Harun Yahya’s activities on this development, and went on to say the following about Atlas of Creation:

… creationism comes in various … varieties. Turkey is now a major source of creationist propaganda outside the USA, and is especially significant in relation to its influence on Muslim populations in Europe. …

… the appearance of the Atlas of Creation in France in early 2007 caused more of a stir than CESHE [Cercle d"Etude Historique et Scientifique – Scientific and Historical Circle] has produced in a quarter of a century of activity. …

Turkey may well constitute the most important source of creationist propaganda outside the USA, and it certainly explains much of the success of creationists in attracting support from Muslim students in the UK, Germany and France. … the book Evolution Deceit is available not only in Turkish and English, but also in French, German, Spanish, Italian, Russian and Arabic, and circulated in many countries, definitely including Argentina, and possibly others in Latin America. Recently the profusely illustrated and expensively produced Atlas of Creation from the same source has been distributed in several languages free of charge to teachers, schools and universities in different countries. One quotation from the Introduction…:

The fossil record is perhaps the most important evidence that demolishes the theory of evolution"s claims. Fossils reveal that life forms on Earth have never undergone even the slightest change and have never developed into one another. Examining the fossil record, we see that living things are exactly the same today as they were hundreds of millions of years ago - in other words, that they never underwent evolution.

The same article, in both English and Spanish, can also be found on the French Laboratoire de Bioénérgétique et Ingénierie des Protéines (Bioenergy and Protein Engineering Laboratory) and “Sociedad de Biología de Chile” (Society of Biology of Chile) web sites.
