WHY DO DARWINISTS
CAST THEIR SPELLS?
Throughout history, men and women have sought answers to basic, essential
questions: How did everything-living and non-living-in this universe come
to exist? Who are we, and where did we come from? They have made philosophical
inquiries into these subjects and come up with various notions. However,
there is one clear answer to these questions that requires no long investigation.
A person who looks without prejudice at everything in the universe, both
animate and inanimate-beginning with his own body-can realize that all
things have been created by a single Creator Who has superior power, wisdom
and knowledge. Such a person will understand that from the harmony between
his own body and the Earth he lives on; to the balance among the stars,
galaxies and other celestial bodies; from the abundance of the water he
needs to survive to the colorful world around him and all the beautiful
living things in it-all this clearly reveals the existence of a merciful
and protective Creator.
That supreme Creator is Almighty God, the Lord of all the Worlds. He
has revealed the Fact of Creation in such a way that human beings can
discover it using their faculty of reason, and He has announced it to
all people through the mediation of messengers whom He has chosen from
among them. Throughout history, however, there have been many who rejected
these facts. Despite all the proofs for the existence of God that have
been set before them, and even though God has shown them obvious miracles,
still they persist in rejecting His existence. In the Qur'an, His final
revelation, God tells us of such people:
They have sworn by God with their most earnest oaths that if a Sign comes
to them they will believe in it. Say: "The Signs are in God's control
alone." What will make you realize that even if a Sign did come, they
would still not believe? We will overturn their hearts and sight, just
as when they did not believe in it at first, and We will abandon them
to wander blindly in their excessive insolence. Even if We sent down angels
to them, and the dead spoke to them, and We gathered together everything
in front of them right before their eyes, they would still not believe
unless God willed. The truth is that most of them are ignorant. (Qur'an,
Still another group of people claims to believe that God exists but-as
can be seen from their behavior-they do not acknowledge His power and
eternal might. They know that He has created everything that exists, yet
still they ignore His messengers and reject the truth these messengers
proclaim. In the Qur'an, God reveals to us the spiritual condition of
It is He Who has created hearing, sight and hearts for you. What little
thanks you show! It is He Who dispersed you about the Earth and you will
be gathered to Him. It is He Who gives life and causes to die and His
is the alternation of the night and day. So will you not use your intellect?
However, they say the same as previous peoples said. They say, "When we
are dead and turned to dust and bones, shall we then be raised again?
"We and our forefathers were promised this before. This is nothing but
the myths of previous peoples!" Say: "To whom does the Earth belong, and
everyone in it, if you have any knowledge?" They will say: "To God." Say:
"So will you not pay heed?" Say: "Who is the Lord of the Seven Heavens
and the Lord of the Mighty Throne?" They will say: "God." Say: "So will
you not guard against evil?" Say: "In whose hand is the dominion over
everything, He Who gives protection and from Whom no protection can be
given, if you have any knowledge?" They will say: "God's." Say: "So how
have you been bewitched?" The fact is that We have given them the truth
and they are liars. (Qur'an, 23:78-90)
From these verses, we can see that even though these people know that
God is the Creator of all things and the Judge of heaven and Earth, still
they reject religion. They also reject the revelations made by God's messengers
concerning the resurrection and the afterlife and even regard these truths
as simply myths from the past.
How can these people be so resolute in denying the existence of God,
even though they have seen and acknowledged the proofs for it?
The answer to this question is contained in the verse quoted above: "So
how have you been bewitched?" With this verse, God reveals that these
people are bewitched, in that they behave as if under the influence of
a spell cast upon them.
Why do some people employ such false suggestions and sorcery to deceive
both themselves and others?
Anyone who believes in God's existence and eternal power and who doesn't
pretend he cannot understand this truth also realizes that in addition,
he is responsible to God. God has created him, like every other human
being, from nothing and has put a multitude of things in the universe
at his service. Anyone who understands that his birth, life and death
all lie within the power of God's will, must use his whole life to please
the Creator Who created him from nothing and endowed him with so many
Those who, in their arrogance, do not believe, also refuse to submit
to God or gain His favor. They turn a deaf ear to His commands and prohibitions.
They have made it a principle to stay unfettered and not to grant obedience
to any authority: This is what leads them into disbelief. God shows us
this human characteristic in verse 36 of Surat al-Qiyama:
"Does man reckon he will be left to go on unchecked?"
And in another verse, He reveals that human beings in their arrogance
reject these truths, even though they understand them.
Those who Do Not Believe Seek Proofs to Support their Disbelief
Ever since human beings first appeared on this Earth, large numbers of
them have rejected the existence of God for the reasons enumerated above.
Therefore, they have always looked for proofs that might validate their
denial, but have never succeeded-because of the very clear proofs for
Charles Darwin, founder of the theory
of evolution, which modern
scientific discoveries have invalidated.
In the nineteenth century, a man appeared on the scene who had rejected
religion and refused to see himself as responsible to his Creator. His
claims had a spellbinding effect on other unbelievers. This was an amateur
biologist by the name of Charles Darwin. Working under the primitive scientific
limitations of the nineteenth century, he proposed some untenable ideas
on the origins of life that rejected the fact of Creation and assembled
these ideas in a book he entitled The Origin of Species. Thus the theory
of evolution was born.
Actually, the roots of Darwin's theory can be traced back to ancient
times. Originally, the idea was proposed by several atheist and polytheist
philosophers of ancient Greece. But thanks to scientists who believed
in a Creator Who created the whole universe, the ideas of these ancient
philosophers had no lasting effect. But with the advance of the nineteenth
century's materialist thinking, which rejected the existence of God and
claimed that only matter was absolute, evolutionist ideas were revived
Darwin based his theory on a few groundless suppositions. Those who rejected
God used it as a means to bolster their own superstitious ideas and to
establish them on a supposedly scientific foundation. What, then, did
this theory claim that was so attractive to those who denied the existence
Briefly, the theory of evolution claims that lifeless pieces of matter
came together by chance, organizing themselves to produce living organisms.
That as a result of chance occurrences, these organisms changed in response
to natural conditions and diverged from one another in structure and appearance.
According to this claim, living things were not created.
Why, then, do so many approve of Darwin's theory of evolution? Because
they believe that the formation of life can be explained without reference
to a Creator. If you examine the theory of evolution with scientific objectivity
only, without regard for its ideological purpose, you can see that it's
contrary to science and logic. Moreover, the totality of available data
on the origins of living things points to this theory being invalid. Indeed,
we have reached the point where modern science has demonstrated the extremely
complex structure of every living creature, in all its magnificence. Facts
authenticated by present-day's scientific research show the impossibility
of living things arising by chance. They could have come to exist only
as the result of a superior design; whose flawless plan is present and
evident in every creature.
Every day, some new discovery comes to light to prove the invalidity
of the theory of evolution. Yet still its supporters will not give up
their allegiance and show an even more fanatical attachment to their belief.
Their motive, as we said before, is evident:Atheists and materialists
need a so-called scientific support for denying the existence of God.
For this reason, Darwinists are determined to hold on very tightly to
their theory, at any cost and regardless of science. And they are determined
not to go back on that promise.
D. M. S. Watson, the well-known English zoologist, explains why his fellow
evolutionists still defend their theory so adamantly, even though there
isn't the slightest proof for the theories they espouse:
The theory of evolution itself is a theory universally
accepted not because it can be proved by logically coherent evidence to
be true but because the only alternative, special creation, is clearly
On the same topic, the evolutionist anthropologist, Dr. Michael Walker
of Sydney University, writes:
One is forced to conclude that many scientists and technologists
pay lip-service to Darwinian theory only because it supposedly excludes
a Creator... 2
By their own admission, evolutionists are so attached to Darwin's theory
of evolution for the single reason that it rejects the existence of God.
But in order for them to accept the theory of evolution even though it
goes against all scientific proof, evolutionists must do a lot of hard
work. Increasingly, scientific developments invalidate the theory of evolution,
and when the matter is viewed with reason and awareness evolution can
be revealed as a lot of nonsense.
It is at this point that the spell of Darwinism comes into play. Darwinists
have to make a discredited theory appear true. To do so, they use all
their skills, trying everything to prevent people from falling away from
Darwinism. They try to get them to believe the unbelievable, to think
the unthinkable and to state the unspeakable. And those who fall under
the influence of this spell gradually come to the point where they are
unable to perceive and consider the clearly evident facts.
Throughout history, actually, there have been several examples of just
this kind of enchantment. In the past-albeit under very different circumstances-godless
people have tried to ignore or not to understand the evidence for Creation
shown to them by messengers and sincere believers. In the Qur'an, God
explains the similarity between these people and people of today:
We sent Messengers before you among the disparate groups of previous
peoples. No Messenger came to them without their mocking him. In that
way We insert it into the evildoers' hearts. They do not believe in it,
even though the example of the previous peoples has gone before. Even
if We opened up to them a door into heaven, and they spent the day ascending
through it, they would only say, "Our eyesight is befuddled! Or rather
we have been put under a spell!" (Qur'an, 15:10-15)
Those who espouse Darwinism today come at the head of these spell-bound
individuals. They counter the evidence of Creation with the myth of evolution,
and try to tell the whole world that the theory is valid. And the masses
are truly so spell-bound by their intimations and false information that
no longer can they perceive the truth. Under these circumstances, those
conscientious individuals who recognize the fact of Creation have a duty
to work towards lifting this spell so that more people can see the truth.
The true path is doubtless the way of God, the Creator of the heavens
and the Earth:
