HARUN YAHYA claims to have the Darwinists running for cover. In the Economic Times of India, we read In 10 years, Darwinism will be history: Turkish Muslim scholar. Excerpts, with bold added by us:
ISTANBUL: A controversial Turkish Islamic scholar has created ripples in the scientific world by challenging Darwin’s theory of evolution and claiming there are nearly 100 million fossils to prove that the world came into being as a result of God’s creation.
“In 10 years’ time, Darwinism will be history and people will only read about Darwinism as a piece of history,” Adnan Oktar, who writes under the name pen name of Harun Yahya, told IANS in an interview.
Why will this glorious revolution take ten years? Oh, so he can sell some more books during the change-over. Let’s read on:
“Darwinism experiences a solid collapse all over the world,” says Oktar, who has been widely interviewed after the publication of his latest book in the past few months, including BBC and Al Jazeera. He has been published extensively in the Islamic world and major European dailies.
If it’s in Al Jazeera, then Darwin is truly doomed. Another excerpt:
Oktar and his group of around 30 scholars claim they have offered supporters of Darwin’s theory 100 million fossils which can prove that this world came into being as a result of God’s creation and not because of evolution.
Yes, all those “scholars” have been out there, digging up fossils stamped “Made by God.” The game’s over.
Oktar is known to have been instrumental in Turkish courts banning several popular websites in Turkey including that of a leading daily, Vatan, which are critical of him. Early this year, Google Groups too were ordered to be blocked by a Turkish court at his appeal.
“I support freedom of speech, not freedom of insult. In the case of an insult, courts will certainly intervene and do what is necessary. There cannot be freedom of insult in the world,” he says in defense.
Hey Oktar! You’re a maroon!
