ONE CAN THINK AT ANYTIME AND ANYWHERE

Such a crowd makes one reflect upon Allah's unique vast creation. Since the moment the world came into existence, Allah has created billions of human faces, all different from each other.

There is no time, place or condition necessary for thought. Anyone may think while walking on the street, going to the office, driving a car, working at the computer, attending a friend's gathering or having lunch.

While driving a car, for example, it is possible to see hundreds of people outdoors. He who looks at these people can think about many different things. It may come to his mind that the physical appearances of these hundreds of people are completely different. None of these people look like one another. It is astonishing that, although these people share basically similar features such as eyes, eyebrows, eyelashes, hands, arms, legs, mouths and noses, they all look so different from one another. Thinking a little further, one remembers the following:

Allah has created billions of people over thousands of years all different from one another. This certainly is a piece of evidence of Allah’s obvious existence and marvellous creation.





The person watching all these people rushing may be occupied by many different thoughts. At first glance, each one of these people seems like a distinct individual. Every one of them has his own world, wishes, plans, ways of living, topics that make him happy or unhappy, and tastes. Yet these differences are misleading. In general, every human being is born, grows up, goes to school, looks for a job, works, marries, has children, sends the children to school, marries them off, ages, becomes a grandmother or grandfather and finally passes away. From this point of view, there are no big differences between people's lives. Whether one lives in a neighbourhood in Istanbul or in a Mexican city does not change anything at all. All of these people will definitely die one day. A century later, perhaps not even one of these people will be alive. The person who realises all this, carries on thinking and asks himself the following questions: "Since all of us will die one day, why does everybody act as if they will never depart from this world? While a person, whose death is certain, ought to strive for his life after death, how is it that almost all people behave as if their lives in this world will never end?"

Such a person is one who thinks and reaches a very crucial conclusion from what he thinks.

A great majority of people do not think about these issues. If they are suddenly asked, "What are you thinking at the moment?", it will be seen that they think extremely unnecessary things that will not be of much use to them. However, man is able to think meaningful, wise and important subjects at every moment from the time he wakes up until he sleeps, and derive conclusions from what he thinks.

In the Qur'an, Allah informs us that in all circumstances the believers reflect and derive beneficial conclusions from their thinking.

In the creation of the heavens and the earth and the alternation of night and day, there are signs for people with intelligence: those who remember Allah, standing, sitting and lying on their sides, and reflect on the creation of the heavens and the earth: "Our Lord, You have not created this for nothing. Glory be to You! So safeguard us from the punishment of the Fire." (Surat Al ‘Imran: 190-191)

As we are also informed in the verse, because believers are people who reflect, they are able to see the miraculous side of the creation and exalt the power, knowledge and wisdom of Allah.






The Parrot Fish's Sleeping Bags



The parrot fish covers its body, particularly at night, with a gelatin-like substance. Let's have a look at how this substance is produced and utilized. Parrot fish produce this substance in order to protect themselves at night against outside effects. This substance protects the fish against nocturnal hunters. In addition, it enables the fish to camouflage itself.

First, this gelatinous mucus is secreted in glands that are located at the upper edge of the gill cavity, while the fish breathes. After a while, this gelatin-like covering envelops the fish's whole body. The most essential function of this transparent sleeping bag is to protect the fish against moray eels, which are among the greatest enemies of parrot fish. Moray eels have an extraordinarily sensitive sense of smell, and they find their prey using this skill. However, owing to this protective sheath, morays cannot pick up the scent of this fish, and do not notice it even if they strike it while passing beside it.

Considering this remarkable mechanism, one must wonder, how did the parrot fish ever come by this protective sheath they use at night? How could they discover such an important material which interferes with the morays' sharp sense of smell and enables them to spend the night in protected comfort?

It is inconceivable to expect a fish to think up and plan to produce a substance in its body and then cover its body with this substance. In addition, it is not possible either for such a formation to have come into existence on its own over time. If a parrot fish cannot plan to produce such a substance with its own intelligence and form such a system in its body by means of its own will, a parrot fish that lived 10,000 years ago would not have been able to do these things either.

A fish's body's being covered with gelatin in order to camouflage it from its enemy in an appropriate way is a very skillful thing. It is obvious that such a feature can come into being only as a result of an intelligent design. This intelligence belongs not to a fish or any other creature but to God, Who has created and fashioned all of this.





THE DECEPTION THAT 'THERE ARE TONS OF TRANSITIONAL FOSSILS AND THAT DINOSAUR SPECIES REPRESENT TRANSITIONAL FOSSILS'

Asked “Are there any transitional fossils?” Celal Şengör gave the astonishing reply that there are “tons” of transitional fossils and that ALL dinosaurs represent transitional fossils. This unexpected reply IS A BLATANT DECEIT.

As we have explained and demonstrated many times before, fully 100 million fossils have been extracted from the layers of the earth, BUT NOT ONE IS A TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSIL. All the 100 million fossils discovered have remained the same for millions of years and are IDENTICAL to living things today THAT HAVE NEVER CHANGED AT ALL. These 100 million fossils, hidden away for years by Darwinists because they proved this evident truth, have been revealed to the whole world and the whole world has been convinced by them. By means of Atlas of Creation, the whole world has now seen that NOT A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSIL EXISTS AND THAT LIVING THINGS HAVE REMAINED UNCHANGED FOR MILLIONS OF YEARS.

It is of course impossible for Celal Şengör to be unaware of all this.  He knows there are no transitional form fossils and that this has been made clear to the whole world. Indeed, the extravagant claim he makes that there exist “tons” of intermediate form is due to the severe nature of this great defeat.

There is no doubt that Celal Şengör is also aware of Mr. Adnan Oktar’s challenge that “a 10 trillion New Turkish Lira prize” will be given to anyone coming up with  transitional fossil.  Yet for some reason he is reluctant to produce even one of the transitional fossils he maintains exist in their “tons.” That is because THERE ARE NO SUCH TRANSITIONAL FORM FOSSILS. The sole reason, of course, for his fantastical claim is that this is a demagogic Darwinist technique, a way of influencing young people with groundless claims rather than scientific evidence. But the fact of which Celal Şengör is as yet unaware is that Turkish society is no longer influenced by demagoguery. Young people in particular have seen and examined the scientific facts for themselves and are aware that these all prove the fact of Creation.

In regard to this claim about these fictitious “tons” of intermediate form fossils, Celal Şengör surprisingly seeks to depict “the whole dinosaur super class,” as evidence.  Şengör, who declares that all dinosaur species with their perfect structures are “transitional forms,” openly maintains that these animals, which are obviously reptiles and have reptilian features “are not reptiles and are not birds, either.” The aim here is to mislead his audience about these extinct life forms. This is a general Darwinist tactic. In their claims about non-existent transitional form fossils, Darwinists always use extinct life forms they can speculate about. Celal Şengör must have thought that extinct dinosaurs were an excellent candidate on this subject since he defines the whole class as transitional fossils. The fact is that these magnificent and perfect life forms from the Jurassic Period have left behind perfect fossil specimens and are extraordinary marvels of Creation EXHIBITING NO TRANSITIONAL CHARACTERISTICS WHATSOEVER. Şengör thought he could deceive the young people opposite him with this claim; but he was mistaken.

Şengör’s first piece of speculation regarding dinosaurs was an impossible though most amusing claim, that dinosaurs turned into birds. This is a deception because;

-    Darwinists’ greatest dilemma in trying to explain the supposed evolution of birds, is the existence of the 150-million-year-old Archaeopteryx, a perfect flying bird from a time when dinosaurs lived.

-    Darwinists only claim that some dinosaurs are intermediate forms by saying that feather-like structures exist. The fact is, however, that all the animals they make these claims about were perfectly formed dinosaurs. In addition, it has emerged that the structures they claim “resemble feathers” are completely bogus. Fossilized membranous structures have constantly been made the subject of Darwinist speculation. It is impossible for Darwinists to point to another supposed transitional form characteristic “belonging to a bird” in perfect reptile dinosaur fossils.  Since the claim that “feathers are present” is one that is very much open to interpretation and conjecture, they claim to have found a few feather-like remains in a giant reptile and then raise this as if it were scientific evidence in all the scientific journals under the monopoly of the Darwinist dictatorship. And indeed, people were taken in by the “feathered dinosaur” deceit for decades.

-    All the fossils brought to the fore on this subject have been proved with clear and irrefutable scientific evidence to have no feather structures.  An article called “Plucking the Feathered Dinosaur” that appeared in Science magazine made it clear that the structures Darwinists depicted as feathers in the best known of these claims actually had nothing to do with feathers at all.

-    The best known fossil that has been attempted to be passed of as a transitional form, T. rex,

    Was a 12-meter-tall, stocky, cold blooded, terrestrial life form that was covered in scales.

It is impossible for this life form to turn into a bird, the largest of which is no bigger than the albatross’ has light bones, is covered in feathers, is warm-blooded, has a lung structure that permits air to flow in only one direction and possesses aerodynamic features, all through random mutations.

-    The latest attempt on the subject was that made to launch Epidexipteryx as a feathered dinosaur. Darwinists interpreted a long, two-paired structure on its back as feather stalks in the process of evolution. The fact though that this structure, as described in a BBC report, is a soft sheath with a membranous structure. It has nothing in the least to do with feathers.

The Darwinist Professor Alan Feduccia, the most highly regarded ornithologist in the world, says this about the myth of dinosaurs evolving into birds:
 
" Well, I’ve studied bird skulls for 25 years and I don't see any similarities whatsoever. I just don't see it . . . . The [theory of] theropod origins of birds, in my opinion, will be THE GREATEST EMBARRASSMENT of paleontology of THE 20TH CENTURY.” 1

"There are insurmountable problems with that theory. . . Beyond what we have just reported, there is the time problem in that superficially bird-like dinosaurs occurred some 25 million to 80 million years after the earliest known bird, which is 150 million years old. 2

“IT’S BIOPHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE to evolve flight from such large bipeds with foreshortened forelimbs and heavy, balancing tails." 3

Czechs Are Also Opposed to Darwin - 07.02.2009
Czech Republic/Lidove Noviny
 




Lidove Noviny, printed in Prague, capital of the Czech Republic, and the country’s oldest daily carried a report on 7 February, 2009 dealing with the rise of anti-Darwinist views in Europe. The article referred to the Atlas of Creation by Adnan Oktar, described as “the Turkish Muslim author Harun Yahya,” as the reason for the spread of belief in Creation in Europe. It also emphasized that voices opposed to Darwin are growing louder in the Czech Republic and that Creationist belief is on the rise.  





Mosques in Germany open doors to non-Muslims / IRNA / 15.11.2008




Hundreds of mosques throughout Germany opened their doors to the general public on Friday, allowing people from other faiths to get first-hand information about Islam.

More than 50,000 visitors took advantage of the 12th 'Day of Open Mosques' to explore the houses of worship and pose questions about Islam, according to the Coordination Council of Muslims and the Turkish Muslim group DITIB.

Islam secures freedom of thought, life and ideas. In religion of Islam, people are preached and reminded, but there is no pressure and compulsion. Allah states this manner in Islam in the Quran as:
    “There is no compulsion where the deen is concerned. Right guidance has become clearly distinct from error.” (Surat al Baqara, 256)
    “So remind them!You are only a reminder.” (Surat al Ghashiyya)

Christians in Europe who visit the mosques, see that there is no compulsion but only communication of true religion.





TRILOBITE

 


Age: 410 to 360 million years old

Size: 5 centimeters (2 in)

Location: Atlas Mountains, Morocco

Period: Devonian


The first examples of trilobites date from about 530 million years ago in the Devonian fossil record. Because of their complex structure and developed systems, they are difficult for Darwinists to explain. Their sudden appearance in the fossil record about half a billion years ago, together with a very complex eye structure, makes it impossible to explain them in terms of evolution. It is clear that trilobites, like all other creatures, were created by God.





AL-FALIQ

The Opener, The Splitter

Allah splits the seed and kernel. He brings forth the living from the dead, and produces the dead out of the living. That is Allah, so how are you deluded? He splits the sky at dawn , and appoints the night as a time of stillness and the Sun and Moon as a means of reckoning. That is what the Almighty, the All-Knowing has ordained. (Surat al-An‘am, 95-96)

Our planet contains many kinds of plants, each of which has seeds unique to itself. If you keep dry seeds in a room, they may remain unchanged for years. Yet once they are buried in the ground or another suitable place, they start to sprout and, one day, grow into a rose bush or a giant plane tree.

While it is amazing to see such variety coming from a “dry seed,” even more amazing is the formation of a living being. For a tree to exist, its seed has to collect the necessary materials from the soil and begin to grow. But a seed cannot determine the amount of minerals and water it needs, nor can it decide to grow into a green plant or a fruit tree.

If we claim that a seed can make such decisions, then we have to accept that the seed is “talented.” But we cannot seriously assert that any seed has such faculties. As the verses above inform us, only Allah “splits the seed and kernel.” By His will, countless trees and plants come into existence. Indeed, another verse relates that Allah creates everything:

He sends down water from the sky, from which We bring forth growth of every kind, and from that We bring forth the green shoots, and from them We bring forth close-packed seeds, and from the spathes of the date palm date clusters hanging down, and gardens of grapes and olives and pomegranates, both similar and dissimilar. Look at their fruits as they bear fruit and ripen. There are Signs in that for people who believe. (Surat al-An‘am, 99)





CHIEF RABBI: I AM SUFFERING FOR MANKIND

What He Said

Seher TV, October 3-2008

Adnan Oktar: Athiest Zionist thinking is a heretical movement that does not believe in Allah or the Qur’an and that is opposed to the prophets Musa, Ibrahim, Ishaq, Yaqub, Ismail, Harun, Yusuf or the others.  That is godless Zionism. They fiercely reject the Torah. It sets people against one another. These heretics imagine that makind will be happier if people are in a state of conflict with one another. They harbor the devilish and insane belief that mankind can evolve and be increasingly perfected when people shed blood and wage war against one another. They therefore set people against one another and imagine that this is a good thing. We have distributed copies of these books in Israel to oppose this perversion. Many people in Israel are also downloading the book over the Internet. We seek to save also devout, religious Jews. BOTH DEVOUT CHRISTIANS AND DEVOUT JEWS, BECAUSE THEY HAVE ALSO BEEN AFFLICTED BY THE SCOURGE OF ATHEIST ZIONISM. Atheist Zionists have troubled them in its real sense. Atheist Zionists are the enemies of Jews, hostile to devout Jews.  They need to be broken and overcome.

Prayer for Palestinians in Synagogues









The theory of evolution, which has been tried to be promoted everywhere as a scientific fact from the textbooks to the scientific publications for 150 years, is actually based on extremely rotten foundations. The evolutionists gave up proving their theory, however, they began to search for ways to keep the theory alive through propaganda, demagogy and eyewash methods. Their aims are not to defend a scientific fact, but to try to keep the so-called scientific fallacy alive in the cause of continuing their materialistic and atheist world view.





 
 Surah Yusuf of the Qur’an is almost entirely about the life of the Prophet Yusuf and his family. There are important lessons to learn from this story for believers. In this book, you will read about the life of the Prophet Yusuf, who went through various difficulties since his childhood and was later given to the control of the treasures of Egypt, in the light of Qur’anic verses and striking explanations.





The Claim that Life Arrived from Outer Space is Wholly Fictitious

Faced with the fact that amino acids could never have formed by chance under the conditions of the primeval Earth, evolutionists embarked on a search for some new way to account for the emergence of life. According to one of their new claims, a meteor fell to Earth. Soon after, organic substances and amino acids inside this meteor reacted together, and thus life sprang into being.

Yet it is now known that the primeval atmosphere was of such a kind that would have quickly broken down any amino acids. In addition, under the conditions of the primeval Earth, even if large quantities of amino acids had arrived from outer space, and even if the world had actually been awash in amino acids, this still would not account for the origin of living things. It would still have been impossible for amino acids to combine by chance and haphazardly give rise to exceedingly complex and three-dimensional proteins, the organelles of the cell, and then for these organelles to give rise to a cell with its own miraculous structure.

According to yet another view, the first life formed not on Earth, but on some other planet. These organisms were subsequently carried to Earth in the form of spores or seeds by meteors, and life thus began here. However, current knowledge shows that it is impossible for spores or seeds in the irradiated vacuum of space to have been withstood the heat, pressure, dangerous rays, etc. through their journey to Earth. Therefore, the claim that the first life formed on another planet does not resolve evolutionists' problems at all, but merely places them one step back. The obstacles to life emerging by chance on Earth will also apply on any other planet.
