By Hector Abu Dharr Manzolillo
Harun Yayha’s Evolution Deceit is a scientific, intellectual and academic deathblow to the modern theory of evolution, a theory which has been largely discredited by scientific advances in the fields of physics, chemistry and genetics, among others. The book is thoroughly researched and solidly scientific. The dogmatic defenders of falsehood, however, will find it difficult or impossible to digest.
As Harun Yahya explains, the theory of evolution does not limit itself to the field of biology; rather, it has socio-political, economic, religious, scientific and ethical repercussions and affects all spheres of life. The author explains that the objective of evolutionism is to destroy belief in God, the Creator and Sustainer, in accordance with the agenda of materialist atheists. Evolution Deceit is particularly important because it exposes the hidden agenda of the evolutionists. It becomes evident that as a thesis, as a philosophy, but most of all as an ideology, the theory of evolution is intrinsically evil.
In order to achieve their sinister plan for world domination, the enemies of God and humanity have to destroy human beings’ belief in God. Once belief in God was shattered, the enemies of God and humanity would have a “rational” argument to discard divinely ordained and immutable commandments, laws, morals, values and ethical principles based on justice, equality, forgiveness and mercy. Having “killed” God in the minds of the people, the enemies of God and humanity would then be free to assault and destroy human life and dignity without hindrance. God’s most elevated creation, the human being, could thus be turned into an animal, an object, a thing, another element, a product of chance, a mere accident, a bastard of the universe, without divine origin or purpose. The theory of evolution, the concept of “survival of the fittest”, and social Darwinism, were promoted by the elitist materialists because they provided a “rational” basis for conquest, colonialism, imperialism, exploitation and genocide.
Before the publication of Evolution Deceit, the theory of evolution was often challenged on moral, ethical and religious grounds based on theological speculation. This contributed to the impression that evolutionism was a “scientific fact” well above “religious myths”, which were the object of ridicule. Harun Yahya’s work, however, deals a fatal blow to evolutionism, exposing its falsehood on the basis of science itself. It becomes evident that evolutionism is merely an atheistic dogma with no scientific basis whatsoever. As a result of Harun Yahya’s extensive research, the myth of evolution crumbles into utter ruin. Using the same unquestionable scientific rigor as he uses to discredit evolutionism, the author also demonstrates that Almighty God, Allah, created everything.
Initially the evolutionist establishment preferred to ignore the impact of Harun Yahya’s research. Eventually, though, the evolutionists resorted to treacherous underhand means to extinguish the light of truth. What most infuriates the enemies of Allah is that Harun Yahya confronts their evolution deceit on the turf it allegedly dominates: the empirical and applied sciences. The author destroys the “scientific” arguments of evolutionism in a profound didactic manner on the basis of the most recent discoveries in the fields of science, including anthropology and animal and human anatomy, discoveries that were made possible by revolutionary advances in modern technology.
Beside demonstrating the falacies, absurdities and fraudulent claims of Darwinist arguments one by one, he exposes the role played by Freemasons, Marxists, Liberals, Zionists and Anarchists in promoting Darwinism and secularism, forces which have united to create the ‘new secular world order’.
The ‘new world order’ is reminiscent of the society described in Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World. It is a society in which the traditional concept of justice no longer exists, and in which the individual sacrifices himself for the collective “good.” It is a society in which all material needs are catered for, and in which there are no spiritual needs of any kind because the spiritual needs of human beings have been suppressed by conditioning. It is the triumph of American communism (the characters in the novel are called Ford, Marx, Lenin, etc.) and the degradation of human beings to an animal existence.
The ‘new world order’, the final stage of militant evolutionism, is nothing less than an authoritarian, despotic and genocidal World Government, an Evil Empire controlled by capital. The World Government is now controlled by only 200 firms (the “fittest,” that is, the greediest materialists), 187 of which are based in Japan, Europe or the United States. The authoritarian rule of these firms has turned the world into a “market” in which democracy exists only in concept but not in practice, in which parliaments exist but have no real power, in which political parties exist but cannot exert real influence. It is a world in which unilateral business decisions rule and where issues like human rights, civil liberties, social assistance and charity appear only in rhetoric and are of no real moment.
The World Government is despotic because it is not subject to any principles, ethics or law, dedicating itself instead to “productivity” and “profit”, which are pursued by the abuse of power and exploitation. The World Government is genocidal because the companies that control it are directly responsible for unemployment, hunger, disease and death all over the planet. All of this evil has been made possible by evolutionism, or “scientific” atheism. Evolutionism has now reached its highest and most glorious stages; a stage in which humanity has reached the pinnacle of subjugation, oppression and exploitation, which is the triumph of evolutionist ideology.
As one would expect, the author of Evolution Deceit has attracted the fury of the forces of darkness. The enemies of truth, blinded by their fanatical hatred, cannot comprehend that although they imprison, torture and abuse Harun Yahya they cannot hold back the will of God. The enemies of life do not confront Harun Yahya with “scientific methods.” They confront him with violence and brute force, the destruction of his books, imprisonment and torture, and he has only recently been released after 11 months in jail in Turkey.
The enemies of God and humanity believe that “once the holy man dies, so does holiness.” They fail to realise that the martyrdom of millions of the faithful over the centuries has done nothing to diminish human faith in God. Divine truth is indestructible and will always triumph eventually. Those who struggle in the path of God come to recognize the indestructibility of God’s Truth, but by ways and means which the rebel against God can never understand. The light of truth cannot be extinguished by multinationals, Zionists, scientists of the establishment, hypocrites or imperialists.
Harun Yahya concentrates on exposing to the public the most profound roots of the present crisis facing humanity. These roots are fed from the collective experiences that bring and have brought nations to unprecedented suffering and hardship. These trials are the direct result of the spread of various ideologies and philosophies including materialism, liberalism, capitalism, Marxism, communism, Nazism, Zionism and anarchism. Harun Yahya demonstrates how all of these ideologies and philosophies are based on the idea of evolution, a doctrine that contains all of the necessary elements to permit individuals to have inhumane, immoral, and unethical attitudes without suffering from any “questions of conscience.” Once the falsehood of evolutionism has been exposed, the Straight Path becomes clear like crystal and leads humanity towards Truth, Grace, Salvation and Happiness. As Harun Yahya explains and demonstrates, the Straight Path can only be found by following the path of the Prophets of God, particularly the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (may the peace and blessing of Allah be upon him).
Harun Yahya’s pen is more than prolific. He has written and published over one hundred books, booklets, and pamphlets in Turkish, of which almost twenty have now been translated into English, including The Creation of the Universe, The Signs in the Heavens and the Earth For Men of Understanding, Perished Nations, Allah’s Artistry in Colour and The Disasters Darwinism Brought to Humanity.
