Darwinism, by arguing that life and the
entire universe are the work of blind chance, is easily the most dangerous
ideology confronting us today. It formed the basis of all harmful movements,
including communism and fascism, devastating mankind. Despite its scientific
refutation time and again there are still those who seek to keep Darwinism
alive purely for ideological reasons.
A little knowledge is a dangerous thing when it comes to Darwinism. People
equipped with factual or analytical want of the discussion, unaware of
the grave danger that it actually represents, unaware of the terrible
social and moral disasters the theory of evolution has brought with it,
unaware of the damage wreaked by Darwinist thinking over the last century
and a half, may also look down on such a vital intellectual struggle against
it. By denying the existence and oneness of God and the responsibility
of each man and woman to Him, Darwinism prepares the groundwork for destruction
by indoctrinating people with the idea that human beings are irresponsible
products of blind chance and are no more than yet another species of animals.
The most obvious heritage of the dominance of Darwinism and its symbiotic
partner, the materialist philosophy, radically is the distorted answer
to the fundamental question, “what is man?”. Some
people who would previously have answered “man is a being created
by God to live by the moral values revealed by Him,” have now,
as a result of deceptive indoctrination, fallen into the erroneous thought
“man came into being by chance, and is an animal that developed
through the struggle for survival.” There is a grave price
attached to such a grave error in thinking, from which ruthless ideologies
such as racism, fascism or communism, as all violent worldviews, have
Darwinist Thinking Lies at the Root of All Harmful Ideologies
A look at the general history of the 20th century, a period of war, conflict,
anarchy and chaos, and thus of terrible human suffering, should be enough
to realize disastrous results of Darwinism. In the last century millions
of people were killed, slaughtered, abandoned to starvation and death,
and left neglected, homeless and defenseless by the same perverted ideologies,
and all for nothing. Millions more were subjected to inhuman treatment
that should not even be inflicted on animals. Ruthless dictators with
Darwinist mindsets led vast masses of people into conflict, turned brother
against brother, ignited wars, initiated bombings, brainwashed masses,
and by placing guns in the hands of the ignorant caused countless deaths
of men and women and the young and the old.
Fascism and communism head the list of these ideologies that cast such
a shadow over mankind. On the surface they appear to be movements that
are diametrically opposite seeking to destroy one another. Yet these ideologies
are all fed and draw strength from the common intellectual source—the
materialist philosophy and its natural sciences version, Darwinism—which
pay the service of attracting vast masses of people into their ranks.
Shortly after it was first put forward, the theory of evolution expanded
beyond such fields as biology and paleontology, and began exerting an
influence in many other spheres, from human relations to historical interpretation,
from politics to social dynamics. In particular, when the Darwinist falsehood
“nature is the arena of struggle and conflict” was applied
to society, a supposedly scientific guise was bestowed on Hitlerâ€™s
master race perversion, Marxâ€™s error that the history of man is
nothing but a “class conflict,” the capitalist view that “the
strong grow stronger by crushing the weak,” the ruthless exploitation
of third world countries by imperialist nations, and the racist attacks
and discrimination to which people of different color are still subjected
today. Those who regarded human beings merely as an advanced species of
animal kingdom had no qualms about trampling on others in order to elevate
themselves, eliminating the sick and weak, or slaughtering races they
regarded as different and inferior. Because their theories, with their
scientific masks, tell them that their acts were a “law of nature.”
As we have seen, Darwinism, the social harm wreaked by which many people
are unaware of, has inflicted terrible disasters on mankind. The theory
of evolution, which is devoid of any scientific evidence and goes no further
than being an outdated dogma, is still blindly supported today solely
for the sake of propagating atheism, despite the lack of any scientific
findings to back it up.
Terrorism Can Be Eradicated through the Intellectual Elimination of Darwinism
Everyone knows what a horror terrorism is; yet most people are unaware
that its ideological foundation is no other than Darwinism.
It is clear that the falsehood that “man is a fighting animal,”
inculcated in peopleâ€™s subconscious minds by Darwinism, is a highly
influential one. Darwinism sets out a worldview and a method. The basic
concept underlying this worldview and method is “conflict with anyone
not of oneâ€™s own.”
This may be explained as follows; there are different beliefs, worldviews
and philosophies on Earth. These may regard one another in one of two
1) They may respect the existence of others, seek to build dialogue with
them and follow a “human” path.
2) Alternatively, they may prefer the path of conflict with others, pursuing
their own benefit by harming them, in others words behaving “like
The horror of terrorism is nothing more than an expression of this second
perspective. Therefore, what needs to happen in the context of the fight
against terror is to eliminate terrorâ€™s basic foundation, in other
words the waging of an intellectual struggle against Darwinism. Once Darwinism
has been intellectually eradicated, terrorist organizations will collapse
and the horror of terrorism will be brought to an end.
However, so long as there are endeavors made to keep Darwinism alive,
so long as people are indoctrinated with Darwinist falsehoods, terror
can never be brought to an end. No wonder young people sign up to terrorist
cells while schools and universities are dominated by Darwinism. In order
for a person to become a terrorist he or she must first believe that their
targets are not human, that conflict is a law of nature, that killing
and murdering are legitimate, and that they are not accountable to God.
In other words, they have to be Darwinists. There is no point in talking
about “love, tolerance, compassion and peace” to someone raised
for years to think that unconscious atoms came together to produce life,
and that progress is impossible without conflict. Nor will questioning
how they could execute ruthlessly murdering of innocent people do any
good. It is pointless to expect such people to respect others, abide by
the laws and obey the state.
Fighting terror without waging an intellectual struggle against Darwinism
will be of no more use than trying to eliminate mosquitoes in a swamp.
The only way of eliminating these harmful parasites is to dry out the
mosquito-infested swamp. That is why we need to move against Darwinism
with courage and knowledge.
This Great Intellectual Struggle Must Not Be Ignored
The facts we have touched on in brief here clearly show the grave danger
that Darwinism represents, and the importance of the intellectual campaign
to be waged against it. Even so, some people still underestimate the impact
of this intellectual struggle under the false logic of saying, “What
is so important about Darwinism?” or “Nobody believes
in Darwinism any more, so there is no need to bother about it.”
Such objections in effect become obstacles to Muslims campaigning against
Darwinism. These and similar claims form the bulk of excuses to avoid
taking part in the intellectual struggle.
There are various reasons why such excuses are made, foremost of which
being a strange kind of fear of Darwinism fuelled by lack of information.
People who imagine that the theory of evolution rests on scientific evidence
may well imagine that in fighting against Darwinism they are effectively
fighting against science. Since they imagine that science proves evolution,
they may fear that if they begin taking an interest in the subject they
will be influenced by such indoctrination, their own beliefs will be weakened
and their worldviews will change.
Such fears are groundless. Evolution is an unscientific theory. Every
new discovery in every branch of science over the last 50 years has proved
that evolution is a fabrication and that Creation is the manifest truth.
The truth revealed by science is that God created the universe out of
nothing and that the theory of evolution is of no scientific worth whatsoever.
One of the mistakes that those who are unaware of Darwinismâ€™s defeat
in the face of science make is to try to reconcile Darwinism and Islam.
Since they imagine resistance is futile, they seek to come up with their
own “middle grounds” and imagine that they can thus neutralize
the danger. However, this is a very dangerous and mistaken approach to
adopt. First and foremost, as we have already stated, the invalidity of
the theory of evolution has already been proven. Not a single reference
can be shown in the Qurâ€™an pointing to evolution, contrary to what
may be claimed, and it is instead revealed that our Lord brought life
and the entire universe into existence by commanding it to “Be!”
Therefore, instead of avoiding the intellectual struggle against Darwinism
or producing imaginary scenarios such as “Islamic evolution,”
Muslims today, when information is so easy to obtain, must educate themselves
on this subject and support the great intellectual campaign.
It needs to be made clear that this intellectual struggle is a very wide-ranging
one; it must be waged through the use of all technological means, by following
all scientific developments, collecting the facts revealed by scientific
progress and by presenting clear and evident proofs. The idea that Darwinism
can be defeated by repeating a few objections (for example “since
human beings are descended from apes, why are there still apes around
and why have they not turned into human beings?”, etc.) that have
become very familiar over recent years, without offering sufficient information
and evidence, stems from a failure to reflect sufficiently on the scale
of the phenomenon. A person exposed to constant doses of Darwinist propaganda
from a variety of sources will obviously be unable to alter a clichéd
way of thinking with such facile objections. For that reason, people who
imagine that science actually supports evolution need to be shown that
evolution is unscientific by being given the results produced by science.
That is the essence of the intellectual struggle against Darwinism.
The Intellectual Struggle against Darwinism Calls for Unity
In order for such a comprehensive intellectual campaign to be effective,
it is of utmost importance that Muslims should act in a spirit of unity.
God has revealed in the Qurâ€™an that Muslims needed to be united
in their struggle against denial. One verse describes how corruption appears
on Earth unless Muslims act as one:
Unbelievers are the friends and protectors of one another. If you do
not act in this way there will be turmoil in the land and great corruption.
(Qurâ€™an, 8: 73)
At a time when atheism is widespread in many parts of the world, when
terror and anarchy threaten all mankind, when many defenseless and innocent
people are oppressed, what true believers must do is to use all the means
at their disposal to wage this intellectual struggle against godlessness.
If Muslims fail to establish unity among themselves, citing different
ways of thinking, this will reduce the effectiveness of this great intellectual
campaign. It is essential that they set their differences of opinion aside
and work together to disseminate religious moral values.
All Muslims must play their part in the intellectual struggle against
Darwinism. All Muslim civil society organizations, associations, foundations
and societies must act within a common awareness, without thinking whether
the struggle against Darwinism and materialism is inscribed in their organizationâ€™s
constitution and must contribute to the campaign against Darwinism. Ignoring
all other activities than those engaged in by their own foundations, societies
or organizations, and thinking along the lines of “not part of our
community, no importance to us” is an attitude ill-befitting Muslims.
Avoiding the intellectual struggle against Darwinism under such circumstances,
advancing various kinds of excuses, failing to act in a spirit of unity
and togetherness may be behavior for which they will be held responsible
both in this world and in the Hereafter. It is exceedingly important that
sincere Muslims avoid making such a mistake.
Muslimsâ€™ struggle against atheism, employing all the means at their
disposal in order to gain the approval of God, will, by the will of God,
result in the best possible outcome for all mankind. Sincere endeavor
in a spirit of unity and togetherness will be a means whereby “the
truth will conquer and falsehood be vanished,” as promised by God.
This promise of Almighty Godâ€™s is a source of enthusiasm and excitement
for all believers:
Rather We hurl the truth against falsehood and it cuts
right through it and it vanishes clean away! Woe without end for you for
what you portray! (Qurâ€™an, 21: 18)
The Ongoing Darwinist Deception
Research shows that Darwinism is still continuing to deceive. Surveys
carried out in European countries in particular, especially in France,
Germany and Britain, have revealed that the great majority of people
imagine that the theory of evolution is a scientific fact. People
taken in by the evolution deception turn their backs on believing
in God and religious moral values. A survey carried out by the United
Nations made this abundantly plain. According to the survey, only
18% of Europeans believe that God created man, whereas 82% imagine
that man evolved from other species. Country by country the situation
is as follows:
- Germany - only 14% of the population,
of whom 35% are Catholics and 36% Protestants, believe in Creation.
- France - Around 18% of people believe in
the fact of creation.
- Britain - 20% of the public believe in
- Spain - In Spain, with a vast majority
of Catholic population, only 13% believe in the fact of Creation.
- Norway - Believers in Creation make up
19% of the population.
- Finland - 80% of the population are evangelical
Christians though only 16% believe in Creation.
- Sweden - 12% of people believe that God
- Denmark - 9% of the population believe
- Belgium - The level of believers in Creation
- Switzerland - 24% of the public believe
in the fact of Creation.
This picture once again reveals the importance and urgency of explaining
how the scientific evidence refutes evolution and why Darwinism
is no more than a figment of imagination, and that the scientific
truth points to Creation.
