assalamoalaikum,as ive mentioned im a medical student in my final year.i came to know about this site thru a programme shown on haroon yahya's work and books on indus vision.i was so fascinated and impressed by this programme coz whatever little miracles i've seen during my life as a student in the hospital were so marvellously put forward by him.im talking about the miracles of quran and the very creation of man.i appreciate his work fully.

Its a slim volume that delves straight to the issue at hand. It gives all Muslims believers out there enough material and skills to defend the Koran alone. It also exposes the real tyrants of lies: the evoultionary biologists who do not want to face a Creator

Asalaam Alykum, The origins of much confusion in our western society today regarding the inability to tell right from wrong can be traced back to philosophical ideas, masquerading as scientific fact, regarding how life may have begun on this planet. The simplest most self-evident moral judgements become clouded in mystery when it is assumed there is no God. It is good to know with certainty that it is impossible that life is the result of accidental physical universe events with no intelligent designer as the cause. These books proves the theory of evolution is nothing more than bygone hopes and dreams of aetheists in the scientific community who have long since been proven wrong, beyond a shadow of a doubt. When Darwin made his hypothesis he did not know the complexity of the design and information content of DNA and did not know about such irreducibly complex systems as eyesight. It is exciting to know that discoveries being made today in the scientific community support the existence of an intelligence behind existence of life. Wow! Reading these books by Harun Yahya gave me the realization that there are some incredibly good people out there doing their best for the cause of Truth. Science and religion may actually stand on common ground on certain issues someday, and they may have to cooperate and understand the role each plays if the human race is to continue to survive on this planet.

Assalam-o-alaikum. sir your books are really the eye openers. and the good part is that they differ from the typical orthodox concept, that has been dazed over our eyes by anti-islam forces. through your dedicated efforts it reveals that what is the truth and in which spirit it should be followed. i haven't gone through your books as such, but still the articles of "miracles of quran", "relativity of time and the concept of destiny", were really enough to open my eyes. the only problem that i m facing here is of retrieving your work in its original form from the net, because the speed of net here in pakistan doesn't permit me to do so. and about the recommended stores, i dont find any in pakistan. i will be very grateful if you could guide me to someone in my vicinity who could borrow me the work in original form, so that i could get that copied and then distribute to those who are really eager to study this but dont have the availability. may God bless you for all the work you are doing for the benefit of this mankind.aameen.

Asslam O Alikum Jazak Allah for everything u have done for Islam and may Allah gives you more strength to do that.

This is a compelling example of how one man's passion didicated to God Alone (Koran 17.45) and dedication to history and Science can result in a masterful piece of work.
The author and brother Adnar Oktar does a fantastic job of composing a well researched historical peice along with his deductions and speculations on the Freemasonry. This proves to be especially difficult due to both the limited ammount, and antiquity of written source material on these subjects.
These books are a must for the library of both a dedicated mason (??), or a muslim seeking enlightenment on Freemasonry and their Hidden agenda to the world.
Read this work with an open mind and draw your own conclusions.

Over the past several years I have read a number of books both for and against the theory of evolution. One of these books was in fact Darwin's original thesis, "The Origin of Species." Some of the others Arabic scientist have been books that try to defeat Darwin by presenting a myriad of counter evidence which the author believes is proof that Darwin's theory is false. However, they usually end up being just as guilty as Darwin in making untested assumptions and sweeping generalizations. The end result is that these books aren't very convincing unless you read them having a completely bias view to begin with.
Harun Yahya books are entirely different. He makes the argument that simply showing tidbits of evidence which might be compatible with an evolving earth isn't the same as proving the fundamental tenants of the theory. Providing these tidbits of information is exactly what scientific naturalists professors and teachers on our Universities in Tunisia have been doing all along. His purpose is to prove Islamic creationism to be true, but also to show how flawed the "evidence" for evolution really is. Whatever your personal beliefs may be,even you will view the lack of evidence for evolution in a different light after you read "Darwin Refutted." I give Harun Yahya two thumbs up! I think brother Harun Yahya you have to make a conferrence in Tunisia too. We as youth need you, we want sincere believers to teach us REAL science.

Darwinism is the Titanic and Harun Yahya and SRF are the tip of the Iceberg. It only takes intelligence to sink darwinism. Why is that so? It pretty simple. If you survey darwinist literature you will find a simple truth: no one has ever seen evolution taking place!
1) No one knows how a unicelular organism could lead to the tree of common descent. No one can tell the full story or reconstruct the whole process.
2) What's more, evolutionary algorithms are simply incapable of accounting for the complexity of life. The probabilities involved in the origin and evolution of life are beyond our wildest dreams.
3) Most "proofs" of evolution are based on unlikely and untestable extrapolations.
4) Many arguments demonstrating evolution assume it took place in the first place. They are (no so clever) tautologies. In fact, it is hard to find an argument in favor of evolution that is not question begging.
5) The whole project of evolutionary theory starts from naturalist and materialist assumptions that are themselves question begging.
6) This leads to a "naturalistic circle" in which naturalistic arguments and naturalistic methodology lead necessarily to naturalistic conclusions.
7) The problem with the "naturalistic circle" is that it assumes a materialistic conception of nature. This, in itself, is also question begging and may mean that the many gaps in evolutionary knowledge may be a structural and objective problem, and not merely a conjunctural and subjective one.
8) Information may be a part of nature. This possibility must be investigated before being discarded with tipical "darwinian question begging certainty".
8) Harun Yahya suggests that scientists should have a method of detecting and measuring design before jumping into the conclusion,as does our Richard Dawkins, that "evidence demonstrates the existence of a universe without design".
9) Scientists can only say that there is no design in nature after having devised a reliable method to detect and measuring information design and after having tested it in nature with negative results.
10)If they don't do this, they will be question begging as they usually do. They may even discard Harun Yahya's explanatory filter (though I doutbt they will entirely succed)but they cannot discard Harun Yahya's main argument.

SO WHAT ARE THESE BOOK ABOUT AND THIS GREAT HARUN YAHYA INTERNATIONAL WEBSITE?
These books are about two different philosophical worldviews and how these two worldviews impact science and scientific theories. It delineates between the two opposing philosophies at hand. The books shows clearly how science and scientist are forced to accept dogmatically the philosophy of Matrialism or be spurned from the scientific community.
The sad part of Matrialism belief system is that it precludes the scientist from using all of the available empirical and verifiable data as his or her disposal. It insists that they sit in a box and are only allowed to view the items in their Matrialism box. Anything that falls outside the box, even if they know it is true and has been proven to be true has to be at best ignored or at worst falsified into a non-eventuality. The bottom line is that the matrialsm scientist cannot use all the evidence at his disposal so his theories or constructs are at best weak due to the inability to view the panoply of events around him. The most curious item about matrialism scientist is their insistence that their philosophical presuppositions make them unbiased. When in reality they are being controlled by materialistic ideals and not allowed to venture out of there box.
This in a nutshell is what this books are about by Adnar Oktar, would you prefer a teacher who is teaching you child how to write to be constrained by a philosophy that the only letters in the alphabet are A-L and anything after L just doesn't exist. Or would you rather have a teacher that says balderdash; We have 26 letters and they are A-Z.
Mr.Oktar is an A-Z person. What are you my brothers and sisters?
Hannan Firaak, Studen Biochemistry, University Brussel, Tunisia
I have just finished reading these books . Like many other Tunisian students I am tired of being force fed the orthodox evolutionary theories as indisputable "fact". I am also tired of the vicious censorship and character assassination that typifies the response of the science establishment to any criticism of their "positions of faith" regarding Darwinism, evolution and atheism. You can usually tell the confidence a group has in their postion on a subject by the stridency with which they reply to criticism. The stridency of the establishment's response to Our Spiritual Islamic Brother Harun Yahya and others in the "design" movement should give their supporters pause to wonder that if the establishement is as comfortable with their position and "science", why are they responding as they are? If the critics are wrong, why the need to destroy them personally? The simple answer (and correct) is that both are postions on this subject are postions of faith, not of science. Father And Brother Andar Oktar correctly points out in his books that science supports the design theory and that the evolutionary establishment is simply defending their faith - not logic and not science. The pendulum is beginning to swing back and it terrifies the powerbrokers of the evolutionary establishment. If you want a fair, thought provoking analysis on this subject, read these books. If you prefer being told what to believe, then continue to keep you head in the sand and watch MTV and or Egypte Films.May God bless our Harun Yahya.
Danial Tutour, Student Physics, University Brussel, Belguim
I am very disapointed with evolutionary theory these days. As we read books such as the Selfish Gene, we notice that behind the appearence of scientific discourse there is always a just-so story and a naturalistic question begging assumption.
In the end, if you remove just-so stories and naturalistic assumptions from evolutionary theory you get very little indeed. More than 140 year after Charles Darwin we notice that evolutionary theory suffers from a serious promise v. performance problem. It has simply failed to deliver.
It has failed to account convincingly for the origins of matter and the universe, prebiotic soup and abiogenesis, the cambrian explosion, the polystrata fossils, the origins, sequencing and replication of DNA and cellular life, macroevolution, the origins of complex specified information, for the function of "vestigial organs" and "junk-DNA", for the flaws and evolutionary assumptions that underly the various uraniun-helium, potassium-argon and radiocarbon dating methods.
We can get no satisfaction when we read all the circular and tautological responses that darwinists have to all these questions. Not to mention the faked "Icons of Evolution",as demonsttrated by Jonathan Wells, and the surrealistic debates between men like Richard Dawkins and the late Steven Jay Gould. The more I read Richard Dawkins "vestigial positivism" the more I am interested in creationism of the Douhane Gish, John and Henry Morris and Russell Humphreys AND Harun Yahya.
At least it is able to give a more complete account of human physical, emotional, moral and spiritual existence of Man, as well as of the fine-tuning of the universe.
Many non-creationists are having this same feeling that something is terribly wrong with the dominant evolutionary paradigms. The emergence of self-organization and complexity theories (v.g. Stuart Kaufman), of cellular automata theories (v.g. Stephen Wolfram) and of intelligent design theories (v.g. Michael Behe, William Dembski and Phillip Johnson) are more than enough to demonstrate that many more people can get no satisfaction with darwinism either.
Even english journalist and writer Graham Hancock, author of (among other best sellers) the recent book Underworld, has a strong case against the dominant paradigms in history, geology, archeology, anthropology and evolutionary theory.
John Stuart Mill he wrote, as a part of his arguments in is essay On Liberty, that "If even Newtonian philosophy were not permitted to be questioned mankind could not feel as complete assurance of its truth as they do now". Many things seem to have changed since John Stuart Mill. Newtonian philosophy has been displaced long ago by general relativity and quantum mechanics.
But what is troubling is that Darwinism wants to secure the "assurance of its truth" not by being questioned, but by avoiding question and dissent. This is not scientific nor liberal in the true sense of word. As Mark Twain would say, that is not english, that is not american... that it is FRENCH !!

These books has really opened my eyes. I now believe that Intelligent Design is a legitimate field of scientific study, and is extremely promising for both scientists and muslims/believers. I knew virtually nothing of this idea before reading these books. However, I had read quite extensively (for a non-academic, anyway) among many scientists/authors challenged by Harun Yahya in these books--Darwin, Dawkins, Dennett, Kauffman, and various researchers within the *matrialistic Institute*. I had read their work in a very sympathetic manner and found their work quite compelling. However, Dr. Andar Oktar has issued a challenge to their lines of thought that simply cannot be ignored. In fact, in these book's and appendix, Harun Yahya carefully lists all major objections to design theory and skillfully defends against each.
I am a professional engineer in Tunisia. Engineers understand design about as well as any profession--maybe better than most. Harun Yahya's insights into design are solid. I had suspected before that many scientists in my country Tunisia see design as something "less than" science, but never questioned why in their science magazine. Mr.Oktar has revealed what I see as an ugly bias, a close-mindedness in some scientists, that surely can only obstruct their view of the truth. It's about time science (scientists) opened its eyes. I believe Harun Yahya and his colleagues are doing revolutionary work. If you're at all intrigued by the topic of these books--read it and it will change your whole life.

I would like to say that brother Harun Yahya's work really strengthened my faith. Being a science student myself, I couldn't help but think twice about the theory of evolution and all they taught us about it in university. His book "Tell Me About Creation" - with all it's credible scientific facts - made me realize that this theory is not as scientific as some people want us to believe. My doubts have been dispelled; Allah is the creator of all things and may Allah bless brother Yahya for all his incredible work. I will certainly recommend this site to others.
Fatima Hadoesa, Biology Hight school Teacher, Tunisia//Binzard
Harun Yahya is best, the greatest writer yet -- the one I'd been waiting for. In his books he deals more with the philosophical issues and Islamic response to those issues.
What is science? A search for TRUTH, at all costs? Or is it instrinsically bound to naturalism, a belief system? Why do evolutionists need to defend their beliefs by resorting to obfuscation and cheap propaganda?
Answers to these questions, and more, await you. This is a must-read books for anyone concerned about a philosophical movement which has had enormous negative consequences in recent history and promises worse to come; a movement dominating our culture today with little real criticism. Harun Yahya offers the criticism, and begs for more. He also brings up what is becoming the key scientific issue (real science!): can the mechanism Darwinism that we learn in Hight school describes actually create information from raw, inanimate materials (e.g., create cells with DNA and the ability to reproduce, which are necessary for natural selection even to start)?
When I was an undergrad, folks had bumper stickers that said things like "Challenge authority." It's high time we challenged the cultural "authority" of evolutionism and its negative view of the value of human life.

Harun Yahya has written fascinating books about how biology use outdated evidence for evolution that modern evolutionary biologists no longer accept. Whether one agrees or disagrees with Harun' overall points, his books are carefully argued and thoroughly documented by references to the primary scientific literature, and it deserves a serious look by anyone interested in contemporary debates over evolutionary theory. Unfortunately, many of the published criticisms mostly Turkish of Haruns' book seem to rely on ad hominem attacks or straw-man arguments. Some of the reviewers don't even seem to have read the books. For example, one reviewer asserts that according to Haruns peppered moths "never" rest on tree trunks. But Harun does NOT make this claim in his books (and he doesn't use the word "never"). Haruns' claim is only that such moths RARELY rest on tree trunks, a conclusion that he amply supports from the relevant scientific literature. This more nuanced claim still undermines the standard textbook use of the peppered moth story in my University in Brussel. By the way, Haruns' critique of the peppered moth story is fully corroborated in Judith Hooper's new book, Of Moths and Men, which goes into great detail about problems with the original moth experiments. Don't allow Haruns' critics to poison the well by misstating Haruns' arguments. Read the books for yourself and make up your own mind.
