By A. O.
Nobody who thinks in an unbiased, honest, and free manner can genuinely believe that unconscious atoms came together by chance, organized themselves, and finally brought about people who think, reason, feel, see, hear, establish civilizations, make discoveries, create works of art, rejoice, feel sorrow, or even study the atoms that compose their own bodies under the electron microscope. Yet this is the irrational belief that Darwin’s theory imposes upon people. Despite the scientific terminology they use, that is the essence of Darwinist logic.
People who accept such “logic” begin to lose their powers of rational analysis and judgment. After accepting the most impossible scenario as quite logical, they become unable to see the most obvious proofs of religious faith. Such people, who have lost the ability to think and to see the most obvious truths, to understand the suggestions and propaganda to which they are subjected for what they are, and who blindly accept that idea just because the majority do so, can easily be drawn in any direction. After arriving at that stage, such people cannot even use their own intelligence, a condition that makes it much easier to give them a gun and send them off to be a terrorist or else convince them that “Darwin says that this person belongs to an inferior race, so you may kill him or her.”
In fact, the damage done to young people by Darwinism in many countries is seen to be irreversible. Hooligans in England, neo-Nazis in Germany, the skinheads in America, and the majority of young people throughout the world have lost all human qualities. Such people, who are killers and monsters, are living examples of Darwinism’s danger. The reason why such countries are having terrible trouble with their young people is that those young people received a Darwinist education.
We must be aware that people raised in this way will bring nothing but harm to the societies in which they find themselves. One day, today’s young people will be adults, administrators, diplomats, and teachers. So if we hope to see a modern, scientifically advanced and rational civilization in the future, we must educate our young people with that aim in mind. This can be done only if we free our young people from Darwinist ideas and falsehoods and explain to them that they are not evolved animals, but rather God created them, have a soul, and possess the greatest knowledge among all living things. In other words, we must tell them the truth.
If young people know that they have been created with an honorable and superior soul and consciousness, they will behave accordingly. If they are made to believe that they have evolved from animals, share a common ancestor with apes, and other similar ideas, they will look at life as a fight and resort to all methods to win it. A selfish and irresponsible generation, capable of all kinds of cruelty and with no concept of tolerance, love, respect, or brotherhood will then emerge. In any case, they will see themselves and other people as essentially valueless due to their belief that all people are descended from animals. Believing that there is no point in leading an honorable and moral life, they will selfishly display all kinds of wickedness and immorality.
What needs to be done, therefore, is to eliminate the dictatorship of evolutionist concepts and theories in schools, books, the press and the media, social platforms – in short, everywhere – and to direct people toward the rationality and deep thinking demanded by both the Qur’an and science.
