The Unquestionable Taboos of Darwinism
Regardless of the fact that the Darwinist religion is merely a product of demagoguery, it has come to occupy an influential position in people’s minds. They are not able to question it because it is forbidden to ask questions; this religion demands unconditional faith.
To be a Darwinist it is necessary to believe that living beings were formed from lifeless matter, that reptiles began to fly as a result of a coincidental process, that highly complex organisms such as cells, and eventually eyes and ears, came into existence by random chance, that sea creatures such as whales evolved from mammals like bears who went into the sea in search of food, that dinosaurs who ran after flies developed wings and became birds. It is evident how unreasonable and illogical these presuppositions are.
One who reads these words might think that since respected scientists believe these things, they must have proof. But there is not the slightest proof – only guesses, suppositions, probabilities and whims. The decision about these things has already been made; now it is necessary only to believe.
All that is needed to get people to believe in this religion is a single article in a magazine or book or a short documentary film. Even if one wishes, he cannot ask questions nor examine the fossils that are supposed to confirm transitional forms or the fabricated drawings and illustrations that are claimed to be true representations. He cannot himself carry out experiments, such as the Miller experiment which was proven invalid by scientific developments. Those who get involved in this type of enterprise are immediately excluded from scientific circles by the Darwinist missionaries; in fact, they are “excommunicated.” If they would just think a bit about these facts, they would realize the truth.
Anyone with minimal scientific knowledge knows that there would not be enough time for a fish coming onto the land to grow accustomed to the new environment and that it would soon die. Anyone who has studied the complex structure of a cell will understand that this miraculous organism could not have come to be through coincidence. He will realize that a reptile cannot just develop wings by chance and fly. Perceived with a common-sense approach, such facts will be proven by every kind of experiment and observation. But people whose minds have been clouded by Darwinist doctrine do not want to think about such things; they are afraid to think about them.
However, it is only by thinking, investigating and observing that a person will be able to see the truth, save himself from prejudice and overcome taboos. In order to understand that Allah created the universe, people must think deeply about the creation of the earth and the heavens. When one frees himself from prejudice, the only conclusion he can come to is that there is a supreme Creator. In the Qur’an, Allah shows the importance of using one’s mind:
Indeed, in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the alternation of the night and the day, and the [great] ships which sail through the sea with that which benefits people, and what Allah has sent down from the heavens of rain, giving life thereby to the earth after its lifelessness and dispersing therein every [kind of] moving creature, and [His] directing of the winds and the clouds controlled between the heaven and earth are signs for a people who use reason. (Al-Baqarah 2: 164)
…Those who remember Allah while standing or sitting or [lying] on their sides and give thought to the creation of the heavens and the earth, [saying], ‘Our Lord, You did not create this aimlessly; exalted are You [above such a thing]; then protect us from the punishment of the Fire.’ (Aal `Imran 3: 191)
Darwinist leaders are aware that freedom of thought will mean the end of their theory of evolution, and for this reason, they have discouraged thought. The method they use is to suggest to people that the so-called scientific aspects of this religion are highly complex and very difficult to understand. They use incomprehensible terminology, Latin words and scientific comparisons and insist that such things can never be understood by ordinary people. People are thus persuaded and decide from the beginning that they cannot understand and that the fundamentals of Darwinism can be comprehended only by great men of science. In order to avoid embarrassment, the most logical thing, as they see it, is to accept what they say. So between the leaders of the religion and the followers, a hierarchy has been established, and everyone knows his place.
But despite all the precautions, prohibitions and obstacles, Darwinists cannot prevent their adherents from experiencing doubt because their surroundings provide thousands of proofs for creation. In order to doubt the Darwinist theories it is enough to contemplate the perfect order of the world, the interesting characteristics of every living thing, the dazzling precision in the whole of creation from an atom to the galaxies, the complex structure of every living organism, the beauties of nature, the smell of a rose, or the taste of a fruit.
After scientific developments proved the invalidity of the theory of evolution, many scientists have had to acknowledge this in various ways. Darwinists have done everything they could, but they were unable to cover the facts with mud. As much as they try to suppress them, discussions, books and research papers that show the invalidity of Darwinism are always appearing, and it is impossible to prevent their circulation. Therefore, Darwinist missionaries revert to one of their most significant emergency measures – forgery.
Evolutionists Regard It Permissible to Commit Forgery
To support their theory and its basic claims, evolutionists have often committed forgery. This is the only plausible way to remove doubts because they realize that beyond a certain point, their empty words and demagoguery have no value. People are waiting for documented proof from the supporters of the theory of evolution, but the only proof the Darwinists can give is this false evidence. There is no other resort for those who propagate an imaginary process than to hide new discoveries, destroy evidence, or bend it to support the theory of evolution.
One of their methods is the use of fantastic drawings to support the proposal of a so-called ape-man. In the past, they sketched fanciful illustrations, and now, with the help of a computer, produce new ape-man designs. But their only source of inspiration is imagination because they have no scientific proof. Therefore, they invent “evidence” to support their theory.
And those who disbelieve dispute by [using] falsehood to [attempt to] invalidate thereby the truth and have taken My verses, and that of which they are warned, in ridicule. (Al-Kahf 18: 56)
Indeed, Darwinists have committed substantial forgeries that went down in history as scandals. For example, the Piltdown Man skull, which was discovered in 1912 and deceived the world until 1953, turned out to be a fake fossil fashioned by an evolutionist from a human skull to which he fit the jaw of an orangutan. The teeth of the skull were later added and arranged so as to give the impression that they were human; once in place, they were filed smooth at the place where they joined the jawbone. Then all the parts were stained with potassium dichromate to give the impression of age. Evolutionists displayed this fossil for forty years in the British Museum, the world’s most famous. For forty years the scientific world was utterly deceived.
Another interesting forgery bears the name of the German biologist, Ernst Haeckel, a friend and contemporary of Darwin. To support his theory “Ontogeny Recapitulates Phylogeny,” he made illusory drawings that showed a human embryo and that of a fish as if they were alike. He made additions to some pictures of embryos and removed parts from others. After this became known, he defended himself only by saying it showed that others had made similar falsifications:
After this compromising confession of “forgery” I should be obliged to consider myself condemned and annihilated if I had not the consolation of seeing side by side with me in the prisoners’ dock hundreds of fellow culprits, among them many of the most trusted observers and most esteemed biologists. The great majority of all the diagrams in the best biological textbooks, treatises and journals would incur in the same degree the charge of “forgery,” for all of them are inexact, and are more or less doctored, schematized and constructed.1
Only a few of these forgeries have been reported in the press, but an examination of evolutionist history reveals many more examples: whimsical drawings, false reconstructions, fossil alterations… The purpose of these forgeries was to revitalize the theory by giving it as much support as possible – support which it could not find from scientific evidence. Such falsifications are important proof that evolution is a dogmatic religion and that its followers are fanatics who will stop at nothing to defend it.
