The technological advances of the twentieth century, especially
during its last quarter, were without historical precedent. Many technological
instruments that were unknown just 100 years ago have become integral
parts of our lives. The gap between the technology of the previous century
and of today has reached unimaginable dimensions. Current developments
provide important signs regarding the technological advances from which
people will benefit in the Golden Age.
That age's technological advances will provide great comfort
and ease to people's lives. The time spent at home, at one's job, and
in school will be comfortable, enjoyable, and pleasant. Housework, shopping,
security systems, heating, ventilation, electricity are just a few of
the things that will be monitored by computers. Robots will replace human
labor in many areas. In their comfortable armchairs, watching television,
people will be able to handle their work through remote-controlled robots.
Scientists predict that housework, instrument maintenance, removing of
dust at home will be done by robots, some as small as nanochips. By Allah's
Will, all of these predictions will come true, and the majority of time-consuming
tasks will be accomplished by technological instruments.
In an environment where people are guided
by the Qur'an's values, human life is considered very precious. For
this reason, in a society of believers, people pay the utmost attention
to issues of human health. The latest technology is used in treatments
and operations. All solutions are exhausted and great sacrifices are
made to save a person's life.
One of the technological
breakthroughs in medicine is picturing the area on which an operation
is carried out by sending a powerful source of light into an organism
through fiber optic cables.
Since Alexander Graham
Bell invented the telephone in 1876, communication technology has
developed rapidly and become widespread. The production of cellular
phones was a technological breakthrough. The next big step in communication
technology is expected to be video-phones.
The efficient use of solar energy and wind power
will end dependency on oil. These alternative sources of energy
will meet all energy needs in houses, transportation, heating, or
Thanks to the Internet, any development that
occurs in any part of the world will be communicated to all nations.
The Internet will eliminate all problems related to information
sharing. The advance of science and technology in the Golden Age
will make the Internet a better means to serve to humanity.
Technology will present the beauties of the world to people.
Through high-tech television, people will have the privilege to see and
enjoy three-dimensional environments and even to participate in recreational
activities and games. Virtual reality technology will enhance learning
and provide people with valuable life skills.
The extensive use of computers and Internet technologies
will bring radical changes to education. Home-schooling will be easier
and more involved with the developing virtual reality technologies. More
efficient learning systems, which will rely on gaining personal experience
through virtual reality technologies or the Internet, will replace the
classical education methods, which are based on memorization. Virtual
reality is used extensively today in training. For example, environments
that may be hazardous in the real world can be simulated quite easily
by using virtual reality technology. Thanks to this technology, pilot
training, for instance, has become safe. In the Golden Age, these technologies
will be applied from business and planning to manufacturing and entertainment,
and to many diverse business domains.
The radical changes due to appear in education and training
in the Golden Age will benefit entire nations. As is the case with all
other times, those people of the Golden Age who live according to the
real spirit of the Qur'an's moral teachings will attain all of the beauty,
comfort, and ease that they deserve. They will live amidst abundance.
Advances in transportation will offer comfort and security
and minimize time loss. New highways and high-tech vehicles will be instrumental
in preventing accidents.
The extensive use of underground transportation will eliminate
traffic congestion. Electricity, solar energy, or wind power will replace
the air polluting fuel oils used in vehicles and thus make cities more
Supersonic planes, trains, and other high-tech vehicles will
offer all the comforts one may need. More importantly, this technology
will serve everyone, and not just a particular part of the world's population.
All people will have access to the same technology, and discrimination
Great advances in communication will provide very rapid communication
and information exchange among all people, regardless of location. Satellite-based
telecommunication networking, in particular, will provide tremendously
rapid communication, and holographic telephones will introduce a new dimension
to communication by projecting a life-size holographic image of the person
Computer technologies will surely play a great role in the
abundance of blessings. Today, computers are improving life quality in
houses, workplaces, medicine, communication, the arts, and so on. In the
Golden Age, these developments will accelerate in the socioeconomic domain
on a global basis and bring more comfort to humanity.
In the twentieth century, Internet technology opened a new
era by making communication and information sharing almost instantaneous.
Learning, reading an international organization's reports, researching
in a library, getting news, learning about technological developments
and relevant comments now takes only a few minutes. As a result, comprehensive
information collection that used to take long years of research can now
be done with a minimum of effort.
As the Internet has overcome all obstacles to sharing accumulated
information, all people and nations can have access to it. The ever-developing
Internet technologies will have more to offer in the future.
One point deserves a special mention here. At no time in
human history has the world witnessed such rapid development. In particular,
the twentieth century's technological developments have been unprecedented.
Only 100 years ago, no one could have imagined the world in which we live
today. Only 15 or 20 years ago, people would have seen the Internet as
a very advanced technology that could only be attained maybe after 100
years. Each of these developments indicates that humanity is approaching
a very important time. It appears that the Golden Age will be a glorious
time when people will benefit from all sorts of technology and thousands
Energy production from non-polluting sources is the major
development of the foreseeable future. For instance, wind power will make
coastal cities, in particular, less dependent on customary energy supplies
and promote economic development by lessening dependency on foreign supplies
and thereby increasing the general welfare. Wind power's non-abating nature
and easy-accessibility have encouraged scientists to focus on producing
renewable energy from wind.
Solar energy is another potential energy source. On an annual
basis, Earth receives an amount of solar energy that amounts to 15,000
times our total current energy consumption. The solar energy received
over a 20-day period equals the world's total energy reserves. Therefore,
the efficient use of these resources will end our oil dependency. (For

CREATION FOR THE 4th DAY
THE EXPLICITLY DESIGNED
COMPOSITION OF THE ATMOSPHERE
Breathing might mean to you nothing more than inhaling air
and then letting it back out. However, for this process to work properly,
a system which is perfect from all aspects has been established. We need
not make the slightest effort whatsoever in order to breathe. In fact,
perhaps most people have never consciously thought about the process at
all. Everybody needs to breathe continuously, from the moment we come
into this world until we die. All the necessary conditions, in both our
body and our environment, have been created by Allah and, therefore, we
are able to breathe easily in this way.
First of all, for a person to breathe, it is necessary that
the balance of gasses in the atmosphere be arranged just right. Even a
slight change in this balance could prove fatal but such failures do not
occur at all, because the Earth's atmosphere is a unique mixture that
was designed as a combination of very specific conditions all mixed together
in a way that functions flawlessly.
The Earth's atmosphere is made up of nitrogen (77%), oxygen
(21%), carbon dioxide (1%), argon and other gasses. Let's begin with the
most important of these gasses, that is, oxygen.
Oxygen is very important because living things need this
gas in order to live. To get oxygen, we breathe. The oxygen ratio in the
air is maintained at an extremely delicate balance.
The atmosphere's preservation of the balance of its oxygen
ratio is realized by means of a perfect "recycling" system.
Human beings and animals continuously consume oxygen while they produce
and expel carbon dioxide gas, which is poisonous for them. Plants, on
the other hand, carry out just the opposite process and maintain survival
by transforming carbon dioxide into oxygen. Every day, billions of tons
of oxygen are released into the atmosphere by plants in this way.
Now, if human beings and animals carried out the same chemical
reactions as do plants, the Earth, in a very short time, would become
an unlivable planet. If both animals and plants produced oxygen, the atmosphere
would become extremely combustible and the smallest spark would cause
huge fires. Ultimately, in such a scenario, the Earth would be reduced
to a cinder. If, on the other hand, both plants and animals produced carbon
dioxide, then the oxygen in the atmosphere would quickly run out and,
in short order, all living things would begin to die of suffocation.
All this shows that Allah created the Earth's atmosphere
especially for human life. The universe is not an uncontrolled, chaotic
place. It has been planned in every detail and Allah, the possessor of
eternal power, brought it into being.

THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION DAY BY DAY
EVOLUTION DECEIT - IV
IMAGINARY MECHANISMS OF
Mutations are defined as breaks or replacements taking place
in the DNA molecule, which is found in the nuclei of the cells of a living
organism and which contains all its genetic information. These breaks
or replacements are the result of external effects such as radiation or
chemical action. Every mutation is an "accident" and either
damages the nucleotides making up the DNA or changes their locations.
Most of the time, they cause so much damage and modification that the
cell cannot repair them.
Mutation, which evolutionists frequently hide behind, is
not a magic wand that transforms living organisms into a more advanced
and perfect form. The direct effect of mutations is harmful. The changes
effected by mutations can only be like those experienced by people in
Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and Chernobyl: that is, death, disability, and freaks
The reason for this is very simple: DNA has a very complex
structure, and random effects can only damage it. B.G. Ranganathan states:
First, genuine mutations are very rare in nature. Secondly,
most mutations are harmful since they are random, rather than orderly
changes in the structure of genes; any random change in a highly ordered
system will be for the worse, not for the better. For example, if an earthquake
were to shake a highly ordered structure such as a building, there would
not be a random change in the framework of the building which, in all
probability, would not be an improvement.(1)
Not surprisingly, no useful mutation has been so far observed.
All mutations have proved to be harmful. The evolutionist scientist Warren
Weaver comments on the report prepared by the Committee on Genetic Effects
of Atomic Radiation, which had been formed to investigate mutations that
might have been caused by the nuclear weapons used in the Second World
Many will be puzzled about the statement that practically
all known mutant genes are harmful. For mutations are a necessary part
of the process of evolution. How can a good effect - evolution to higher
forms of life - results from mutations practically all of which are harmful?(2)
Every effort put into "generating a useful mutation"
has resulted in failure. For decades, evolutionists carried out many experiments
to produce mutations in fruit flies as these insects reproduce very rapidly
and so mutations would show up quickly. Generation upon generation of
these flies were mutated, yet no useful mutation was ever observed.
MUTATIONS: ALWAYS HARMFUL
Some disastrous effects of mutations on the
human body. The boy at far left is a Chernobyl victim.
The same holds true for man. All mutations that have been
observed in human beings have had deleterious results. On this issue,
evolutionists throw up a smokescreen and try to enlist examples of even
such deleterious mutations as "evidence for evolution". All
mutations that take place in humans result in physical deformities, in
infirmities such as mongolism, Down syndrome, albinism, dwarfism or cancer.
To summarise, there are three main reasons why mutations
cannot be pressed into the service of supporting evolutionists' assertions:
l) The direct effect of mutations is harmful: Since
they occur randomly, they almost always damage the living organism that
2) Mutations add no new information to an organism's
DNA: The particles making up the genetic information are either torn
from their places, destroyed, or carried off to different places. Mutations
cannot make a living thing acquire a new organ or a new trait. They only
cause abnormalities like a leg sticking out of the back, or an ear from
3) In order for a mutation to be transferred to the subsequent
generation, it has to have taken place in the reproductive cells of the
organism: A random change that occurs in a cell or organ of the body
cannot be transferred to the next generation.
Briefly, it is impossible for living beings to have evolved,
because there exists no mechanism in nature that can cause evolution.
Furthermore, this conclusion agrees with the evidence of the fossil record,
which does not demonstrate the existence of a process of evolution, but
rather just the contrary.

Jesus, the Prophet and Messiah, is alive and will return
to the Earth in the near future. We are Muslims who love Jesus, believe
in all his miracles and noble morality, know that he will come back to
the world again to save humanity and we are eagerly waiting for this great
and blessed event to happen. We believe that Jesus would come back to
the earth miraculously in the last days and bring peace, justice and happiness
by uniting Christians and Muslims in a common religion and morality. Come,
let us prepare together for the second coming of Jesus. Visit the site
