Philosophies That Made The Mistake
Of Denying Allah
In previous chapters we saw the clear signs of the existence of Allah.
Unquestionably, what we have described here is only a very small portion
of His infinite evidence. Wherever one turns, one comes across signs that
point to the existence of the Creator.
Well, then, why are there still so many atheists in the world? Furthermore,
why is it that some scientists are still atheists? Why do they insist
on denying the existence of Allah, despite so many obvious signs?
When we look for answers to these questions, we come across a number
of philosophical prejudices which shape the beliefs of atheistic people–including
those of atheist scientists. Generally defined as materialism, this philosophical
view holds that the universe is eternal and operates without any need
for a Creator. According to atheists, matter is the only power that exists.
Matter is not created and it functions in an uncontrolled fashion without
the intervention of a Creator. There are many philosophers in history
who have held this view. Many, from the adherents of the pagan religions
of ancient Sumer to the atomistic philosophers of ancient Greece and the
dialectical materialists of modern times, have denied the existence of
Allah on the strength of this view.
Their denials, however, rest on no solid ground. They have simply convinced
themselves about the eternity of matter and have strongly embraced this
belief. They have accepted the theory of evolution with the same reasoning
and persevered in their belief. And as the famous American microbiologist
Michael Behe once noted, when confronted by the realisation that life
is too complex to have ever originated by chance, they can only keep silent
and change the subject.
This situation shows that there exist prejudices that cause these people
to commit themselves to materialism, and its natural outcome, atheism.
Their denial of the existence of Allah comes not of evaluating concrete
facts from an objective point of view, but rather in spite of those concrete
Moreover, they try to impose their denial on the public at large.
AUTHORS OF "EVIL PLOTS"
The organised propaganda against faith in Allah indicates that these
movements are manipulated from specific centres. In other words, there
are a number of power centres that make a considerable effort to break
down the religious beliefs of the community. Not surprisingly, Allah has
called attention to these groups in the Qur'an. In one verse, a group
of people punished by hell-fire in the hereafter call out to their leaders
who have led them astray in the world, and say:
Nay! it was a plot (of yours) by day and by night:
Behold! You (constantly) ordered us to be ungrateful to Allah and to attribute
equals to Him! (Surah Saba, 33)
These groups who, by hatching evil plots, order others to be ungrateful
to Allah have made an appearance in every period of history under different
names and guises. Their basic characteristics have nonetheless always been
the same. Allah has described them in the Qur'an as "the luxurious ones"
(Surat al-Mumenoon, 64) or "the leaders of the arrogant party among their
people" (Surat al-Araf, 75), which means that these people are those
who are supremely privileged in material terms, who enjoy prestige in society
and who display arrogance and haughtiness because of their possessions.
Regarding religion as a threat to the concessions they have snatched with
injustice and oppression, they want to eliminate it. This is why they fabricate
"evil plots" in order to lead their community to apostasy.
Of course there cannot be a single definition of such organised powers.
They assume different identities and forms in different societies. When,
however, we take a look at the history of the last three or four centuries,
we come across an international organisation that answers to the description
in the Qur'an.
That organisation is freemasonry
At this point we also need to stress that the global struggle of freemasonry
is undertaken and supported by a power centre that is mentioned in the
Qur'an: Jewry. Although Judaism is a divine religion and Jews are adherents
of that religion, they have played, as we have mentioned above, a crucial
role in anti-religious propaganda conducted all over the world. This is
mainly due to the arbitrary alteration of the Old Testament by rabbis
and the insinuation of superstitious beliefs into the pure religion announced
by the Prophet Musa. Having ceased to be a divine religion as a result
of alterations by Jewish rabbis, Jewry has become a worldly and chauvinist
ideology. Ultimately various ultra-conservative Jews, who regard religion
as a concept exclusive to themselves, have taken the position that Christianity
and Islam are "false religions" that must be abolished. Besides, this
interesting interplay makes those in question act as powers that strive
to erase all religious beliefs from the world. This is the very logic
of the alliance between Jewry and freemasonry.
THE ROLE OF FREEMASONRY
Having its roots in the Western world, from which it subsequently spread
elsewhere, this secret organisation has always been the source of all
anti-religionist thought and activity in every country it has infiltrated.
A close investigation of the history of the war against religion fought
in any country of the world over the last couple of centuries reveals
that freemasonry has always been at the centre of such efforts. The history
of Europe is remarkably clear-cut on this point. This is why the leader
of the Catholic world, Pope Leo XIII, took particular aim at freemasonry
in his famous encyclical Humanum Genus (1884), in which he described
the objectives of the organisation thus:
At this period, however, the partisans of evil seems
to be combining together, and to be struggling with united vehemence,
led on or assisted by that strongly organized and widespread association
called the Freemasons. No longer making any secret of their purposes,
they are now boldly rising up against God Himself. They are planning the
destruction of holy Church publicly and openly, and this with the set
purpose of utterly despoiling the nations of Christendom.20
This papal analysis made at the end of the 19th century is absolutely right.
When we review contemporary masonic publications, we see that the basic
objective of this organisation is to abolish all religious beliefs in society.
A Turkish freemasonry lodge declares in one of its pamphlets how religion
will be abolished through "the dissemination of positive sciences to society."
Finally I want to say the following: The most humanistic
and Masonic mission that falls to us is not to divert from positive science
and reason, to disseminate this by acknowledging that this is the best
and only way for evolution, and tutor the public in the positive sciences.
The following words of Ernest Renan are very noteworthy: "If the
public is tutored and enlightened in the positive sciences and reason,
then the vain beliefs of religions will eventually be dismissed."21
Here, what is meant by "positive science" is essentially "positivist
science" that is, the materialist philosophy that denies everything that
has not been obtained by experiment and observation. The mission of freemasonry,
on the other hand, is to impose this philosophy on people in the name
of "science" and thus abolish all religious beliefs. The theory of evolution
has a very crucial role in this indoctrination campaign, as is also made
clear in the quotation above. Freemasonry holds that fostering belief
in evolution in society is its greatest task.
This organisational connection is a very important factor underlying
the reason why both the theory of evolution and materialist philosophy
and its derivatives are so assiduously promoted in all corners of the
world. The organisation of freemasonry and its offshoots have played
an important role in the systematic propaganda being executed against
religious beliefs over the last couple of centuries. This is why the founders
of diverse -sometimes even contradictory- philosophical systems that deny
the existence of Allah have all been masons.
As we stated above, the founders of anti-religionist philosophical systems
are actually part of a methodical war being fought against religion. This
is why we discover that most of the philosophers who have founded these
systems are part of the organisation of freemasonry, which stands at the
centre of the war against religion.
In this context, the philosophers who draw immediate attention are the
French intellectuals who were the forerunners of the French Revolution.
These people not only criticised religious authorities but also fomented
violent antagonism against religion. Among them are Diderot, the author
of The System of Nature, referred to as the "Bible of Materialism";
Voltaire, who was also an impassioned materialist and opponent of religion;
the radical materialist Montesquieu; Jean-Jacques Rousseau, who constructed
a new "religion" of his own; and the "Encyclopaedists", all of whom
were ardent anti-religionists. The organ of Turkish masons, the magazine
Mimar Sinan, says of these individuals:
The 1789 French Revolution was prepared by
Mason ideologists. The Declaration of Human Rights that embraces the principles
of liberty, equality. and fraternity was written with the inspiration
and guidance of our masters such as Montesquieu, Voltaire, Rousseau, and
The Mason Magazine, also published by Turkish masons notes:
The pioneers who overthrew the feudal system in France
and started the Great Revolution were Montesquieu, Voltaire, J. J. Rousseau,
the leading materialist Diderot, and the Encyclopaedists who clustered
around him. They were all masons.23
The materialistic and anti-religionist ideas that increasingly developed
in the years that followed the French Revolution reached their peak in
the 19th century. When we look at the leaders of this movement, we again
come across freemasonry.
In addition, it is also worth noting that there were many Jews among
these figures. This demonstrates that Jews who, in alliance with masons,
strive to enfeeble Divine religions such as Christianity and Islam and
hold the materialist world view, serve the same purpose on philosophical
BEHIND THE SCENES OF SOCIALISM
An eccentric group was founded in Bavaria in southern Germany in 1776.
The founder of this group, which called itself the "Illuminati" (that
is, "the Enlightened Ones") was a professor of law by the name of
Adam Weishaupt. This society is interesting in two respects: it was a
very secret society and it had set a very ambitious political program
for itself. In the program written by Weishaupt, the two fundamental purposes
of the society were identified:
1. The abolition of all monarchies and systematic governments.
2. The abolition of all theistic (divine) religions.
The attitude of the society towards religion was extremely
antagonistic. According to the English historian Michael Howard, Weishaupt
had a "pathological hatred" for divine religion of any sort.24
The society was in fact a sort of Masonic lodge. Weishaupt was a senior
freemason and he had organised it along the lines of the traditional organisational
style of masonic lodges. The Illuminati grew astonishingly fast. In 1780,
with the participation of Baron Von Knigge, one of the greatest masters
of the German masonic lodges, the power of the society greatly increased.
Weishaupt and Knigge were laying the groundwork for a revolution in Germany
that was socialist in everything but name. When the government discovered
what they were up to, however, Weishaupt and Knigge found it prudent to
disband the society. Its activities were assimilated into their regular
freemason lodges. This union took place in 1782.
In the early 1800s, a new society was established in Germany that sought
to carry on the Illuminati tradition in Germany. The name of the society
was "Society of the Honest Ones". In time, its name was changed to "Society
of Communists". The head of this society wanted to create a political
program for the group and the first two people they called upon to write
the program were two strict communist intellectuals: Karl Marx and Frederick
Engels! These two wrote the Communist Manifesto at the instruction of
the Society of Communists. One widely-known tenet of the Manifesto was
that religion was the "opium of the people" and the tract argued that
the elimination of religious beliefs was one of the prerequisites for
the ideal of the "classless society", which was posited as humanity's
only hope of salvation. It should be noted that both Marx and Engels were
of Jewish origin.
The early dominance of masons and Jews in the socialist movement continued
in the years that followed. A few of the masons and Jews who championed
the socialist movement were:
Ferdinand Lasalle: Lasalle, a close friend of Marx, defended the notion
of a revolutionist communist dictatorship.
Victor Adler: As the right-hand man of Engels, Adler spent considerable
effort preaching communism. His son Friedrich Adler became the leader
of the Austrian Communist Party.
Moses Hess: Born into a conservative Jewish family, Hess was a socialist
and a close friend of Marx. He was also a vigorous Zionist. He pioneered
the Zionist movement in Europe in his book Rome and Jerusalem and
laboured to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. He was also an ardent
defender of Darwinism all his life.
Gyorgy Lukacs: A member of a wealthy Jewish family, Lukacs wrote many
books advocating communism. He helped spread communist ideology among
young people. He was a leading figure in the revolution that brought communism
to power in Hungary.
Vladimir I. Lenin: A Jew, just like most of the leaders of the Bolshevik
movement in Russia, Lenin became the founder of one of the bloodiest totalitarian
regimes in the world.
Herbert Marcuse: The son of a Jewish family, Herbert Marcuse re-interpreted
Marxism and prepared the grounds for the 1968 student upheaval. He incited
leftist college movements that spread all around the world and developed
an anarchist ideology that has caused–and still causes––the deaths of
numerous young people.
A PHILOSOPHY AND ITS HIDDEN AGENDA
When we look at the history of philosophy, we see that there are many
other atheist and anti-religionist philosophers who are distinguished
by virtue of their masonic identity. Among them are thinkers like David
Hume, Holbach, Schelling, John Stuart Mill, Auguste Comte, the Marquis
de Sade and sociologists like Emile Durkheim, Ferdinand Tönnies,
Herbert Spencer, Sigmund Freud, Henry Bergson and Erich Fromm. All of
them are of Jewish origin and all of them strove to turn people away from
religion and to establish a social and moral order that was completely
irreligious. It should go without saying that Charles Darwin and his views
enjoyed a very special position among these figures.
The most important point to note here is that the unbelieving and materialistic
philosophies produced by all these thinkers, and by thousands of their
like, serve certain political and social interests. As we said at the
beginning, the most important reason why people deny Allah is their discomfort
with religion, religion being the natural outcome of the belief in Allah.
Denying the truth of religion because it conflicts with their interests
or with those of the circles they represent, these people have recourse
to atheism in order to gain support for themselves.
For this reason, the apparent signs of the existence of Allah are not
seen by these people. Or rather, it is not their will that those signs
be seen. These people strive greatly to prevent belief in the existence
of Allah and they spread this disbelief through society in general. Eventually,
masses appear who either do not believe in Allah or else have "forgotten"
Him as mentioned in the Qur'an. (Surat at-Tawba, 67)
This is why most people spend their lives without praising Allah at all,
thinking that they live independently of Him. However one must not be
deceived by this "vain crowd", for Allah has already informed us in
the Qur'an that most of mankind does not believe (Surat al-Rad, 1).The following verse also admonishes us about the same subject:
Were you to follow the common run of those on earth,
they will lead you away from the way of Allah. They follow nothing but
conjecture: they do nothing but lie. (Surat al-Anaam, 116)
