When I mention the Stone Age, the name will conjure up various images in your minds. If you remember, ever since we were very young we were taught about how people who lived in the past used to carve rocks using stone and live under veryprimitive conditions. But that was not the fact.
All scientific research has revealed that ancient civilizations in fact existed under highly advanced technological conditions. Archeological findings from the time of the supposed Stone Age, when evolutionists maintain that human beings had only just learned to speak, show that people living in those days enjoyed art, made pictures, built perfect houses and other structures and even performed brain surgery.
In the Holy Qur’an our Lord reveals that societies that lived in the past built a highly advanced civilization:
Have they not travelled in the earth and seen the final fate of those before them? They were greater than them in strength and left far deeper traces on the earth... (Surah Ghafir, 21)
For example, the imposing pyramids of Egypt, the great edifices surrounded by columns in ancient Greece, the wonderful sights of structures hewn from rock in Petra and the flawless roads and irrigation systems in the ancient Mayan city of Tikal prove that, in contrast to suppositions to the contrary, these people were relatively wealthy and lived at an advanced level of technology.
People living in ancient Egypt employed engineering knowledge the secrets of which have still not been unraveled today to build the pyramids. The Mayas were sufficiently advanced in their knowledge of astronomy to determine that a year consists of slightly more than 365 days and to predict the orbit of Venus within 1 day in 6,000 years. The Sumerians studied space using the ziggurat towers of the time and established a calendar of 12 months. These civilizations, of which I have mentioned only a very few, lived at a most perfect level of art and technology.
Archeological research has now revealed that human beings have not developed from the primitive to the more advanced, and that civilizations living under immaculate conditions have always existed. In the same way that we have our space technology on the one hand while people in some parts of the world are still living under very primitive conditions, in the past there was the civilization of Egypt on the one hand and societies with less advanced civilizations in other places.
Even just these few details I have described prove that no such process as evolution ever happened. Indeed, many evolutionists now admit that the archeological findings do not support their theory.
Allah created all living things from nothing. Human beings have always been human beings, and have never evolved. That applies to all living things. Everything in creation was created by Allah telling it to “Be!”:
[He is] the Originator of the heavens and earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, “Be!” and it is. (Surat al-Baqara, 117)
