Creationist Movement Goes Muslim

thumbDuring a very different decade, the Muslim community has at least not had to deal with religious extremists who deny evolution and seek to distort scientific courses. Indeed, Muslim countries have a good record on scientific training and research. Now, a creationist movement has formed among extreme Muslim that mirrors our own Evangelical crusade. Islamic extremists can look to George Bush for support after his recent endorsement of the creationist “Intelligent Design” theory being taught in schools.

For example, Muslim creationist Adnan Oktar (who goes by the name of Harun Yahya) has produced an 850 page work entitled “Atlas of Creation” that is being distributed in Islamic countries. On his website,, he simply notes “Darwin’s claims were of course based on no scientific evidence or findings.” The movement is detailed in a Science journal article by Hampshire College’s Salman Hameed.

A shocking 40 percent of Americans reject evolution and only 47 percent of Americans accept say that they believe in it.

  1. Does your site have a contact page? I’m having problems locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail.
    I’ve got some recommendations for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it grow over time.

  2. Well if calling me an “imposter” is what passes for a conciliatory gesture with you kind sir, then ok, I guess we should move on.

    Consider it done.

  3. waynebro,

    That you established a more “identifiable” ID with your WordPress account was a good move in an attempt to “show” your “one” screen name. That is more than most posters (imposters?) do.

    Now, let’s get your comments on other threads since *we* have all moved on and let’s *lock* this thread on this topic.

    Paranoia and self pity make poor substitutes for good conversation and spirited debate. Maybe you’d do better on a blog designed for those dedicated to a continual and obsessive defense of blah blah ad nauseum blah blah blah.

    PS: I am sure your attorney greatly appreciates your less than kind term for his services. But I suspect he understands his client and is fully blah blahed.”

    Whatever cheif. You’re just mad that I didn’t bow to your nose in the air smuggery last night, so now you want to reopen again today by labling me further as paranoid, overdefensive, etc. Yes, maybe I overreacted to Patty’s attacks.

    Yet they were nonetheless Patty’s attacks, and so far I don’t see one iota of accountability or owning up to that fact from her or any of you defending her. Not one word about the fact that she launches these attacks then when someone dares respond you all pounce like a gaggle of goading geese.

    I said last night several times that I would try to ignore her unwarranted attacks in the future. Just keep in mind when someone attacks you out of the blue, then when you defend yourself and everyone else piles on top of you for that, people have a tendency to continue to stick up for themselves.

    So if you want to truly “drop it”, then drop it. And dropping it doesn’t mean coming in the next day to start rehashing it all over again.

    I’m done responding to Patty’s attacks. If thats not good enough for you and your insincere apology to me for calling me a stupid coward, (you guys never seem to acknowledge your own faults, just those in the poor bastard who comes in your line of fire) then you can stick it.

    I’m done with Patty, and hopefully your guilded saint is done with me.

    Oh and as for my “attorney” and my moniker for him? He unlike you has a sense of humor. A real sense of humor, not a smug arrogant one, and is therefore capable of laughing at things like that. Of course, since we’ve been close personal friends for over 15 years, I imagine that has a lot to do with it.

  5. geeesh, I said I would try to ignore her unwarranted personal attacks in the future.

    Isn’t that enough?

    Talk about paranoid and overkill.

    Enough already. I’ll walk away from it.

    Why can’t anyone else?

    Yawn is right.
