The Evolution Deceit
Born in Ankara on 2 February, 1956, Mr. Adnan Oktar writes under the pen name of Harun Yahya. He is a man of faith who has devoted his life to communicating the existence of the Almighty Allah and His Oneness, and to spreading the morality of the Qur’an. Starting from his university years, he has served this holy cause at every phase of his life.
Mr. Oktar has written hundreds of valuable books. Those that scientifically refute Darwinism have had an especially great impact throughout the world. New Scientist magazine, known for its evolutionist perspective, describes Mr. Oktar as an “international hero:”Harun Yahya (Adnan Oktar) is an international hero. His books have spread everywhere in the Islamic world. He has developed his own Islamic creationism. (New Scientist, 22 April 2001)
The ideological struggle waged by Mr. Oktar against materialism and Darwinism have frequently been addressed in largely evolutionist scientific magazines such as National Geographic, Science, New Scientist and NSCE Reports. The English and German editions of the National Geographic (November 2004 issue), for instance, referred to Mr. Oktar’s works on the Fact of Creation as follows:. . . Islamic creationists such as Harun Yahya(Adnan Oktar), author of a recent volume titled The Evolution Deceit, who … calls the theory of evolution “nothing but a deception imposed on us by the dominators of the world system.” (National Geographic, November 2004)
One of Mr. Oktar's works to elicit a huge reaction in the world as a whole is his Atlas of Creation. Following its arrival in the Western world, reports about this giant work’s extraordinary impact appeared in newspapers magazines and television broadcasts in 60 countries. Leading publications such as The Washington Post, The New York Times, Der Spiegel, Stern, The Economist, Corriere della Sera, Le Monde, Le Corrier and CBS News all carried reports about the lethal blow the Atlas of Creation dealt to Darwinism. Headlines regarding the Atlas of Creation, such as “the most dazzling attack on Darwinism,” "a book that shines like thunder,” “a huge offensive,” “it has impacted like an earthquake,” “a book that has had the impact of an atom bomb” and “how much longer can France hold out?” are all indications of the huge impact the book has had. Before the Atlas of Creation, some 90% of people in Europe believed in Darwinism, while after the publication of the Atlas the figure stands at a mere 10% :RESULT OF A SWISS POLL: THE PUBLIC SAY CREATION SHOULD BE TAUGHT
