The science of evolution


Unit image
Modern scientific discoveries reveal over and over again that the popular belief associating Darwinism with science is false. Scientific evidence refutes Darwinism comprehensively and reveals that the origin of our existence is not evolution but creation. God has created the universe, all living things and man. Yahya, H. (2006) Atlas of Creation, Volume 1
Yahya, H. (2006) Atlas of Creation, Volume 1

Comments like this are commonplace in anti-evolutionary publications, though this particular example is interesting because it comes from an Islamic creationist, demonstrating that such misinterpretation of scientific evidence is not limited to fundamentalist Christians. So it is worth following the exploration of various evolutionary case histories in previous chapters with a second look at the scientific credentials of the theory.
