The Tehran Timesreprints an article by Adnan Oktar, known by his pen name Harun Yahya, a prominent advocate of Islamic creationism that states Darwinism is the root of terrorism and Islam is the anecdote.
Mr. Yahya is opposed to Zionism and Freemasonry and sees them as very interrelated movements. He denounces terrorism, which he says is a product of Darwinism, while he considers Islam its antidote. Islam, he believes, is a religion of peace and love.
Following is an excerpt of Harun Yahya’s exclusive interview with Kourosh Ziabari:
Q: Mr. Yahya, it seems the world is paying a heavy price for ignoring moral values and religious ethics -- and many governments make irrational and irreligious decisions, which lead to starvation, massacres, corruption, poverty, and economic inequality. What’s your view on this?
A: Muslims are generally unaware where the troubles are coming from. People in the world as a whole are unaware of the essence of the matter. When I investigated it I saw that Darwinism lay at the root of all this suffering, trouble, violence and pain as there would be no materialism without Darwinism. Darwinism is essential for materialist philosophy and without materialism there can be no communism, fascism, imperialism, savage capitalism, nor immorality nor terror. These are all inter-related, but because people are ignorant of that, they fail to grasp the importance of the intellectual struggle against Darwinism.
“Why is it so important, why do you concentrate on it so much?” they say. Atheism is active right across the world, hurting and literally damning people. But they do not look for the root cause. Yet Darwinism is the foundation of godlessness, of all atheist ideologies, and thus of all these troubles. I have gone right to the root of the matter and struck at the root of atheism in my work.
It is this that lies at the heart of Darwinists’ own suffering and the savagery in the materialist universe. In other words, by Allah’s leave, I have severed the jugular, the main artery of atheism. As Darwinism has collapsed, materialists have of course less and less respect for their own beliefs. It is no longer possible for people to be materialists. That is why, if Muslims want to fight atheism, they must wage an intellectual struggle against the religion of atheism.
Right on Brother preach it, Amen, Amen, Glory Hallelujah. Man what am I saying, I do not agree with Mr Yahya's assessment, Terrorism is a by-product of man's sinful nature and hatred, and the only anecdote for sin is Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ and only Jesus Christ, and not Islam, is the answer to sin and terrorism.in fact, throughout history Islam has been the religion of the sword. Here is the testimony of Masab Yousef who turns his back on terrorism & converts to Christianity
You see Jesus Christ is the key or the anecdote to terrorism, not Islam. I do agree on this point God created all things and He breathed into the nostrils of both Adam and Eve, and created Man and Woman. And ever since the Origin of Species was published in 1859, the LIE OF DARWINISM has infiltrated our culture and our moral foundation, but the key is Jesus Christ, NOT ISLAM, sorry Muhammad.
