Quote# 18758

"Atlas of Creation" offers over 500 pages of splendid images comparing fossils with present-day animals to argue that Allah created all life as it is and evolution never took place.

Then comes a book-length essay arguing that Darwinism, by stressing the "survival of the fittest," has inspired racism, Nazism, communism and terrorism.

"The root of the terrorism that plagues our planet is not any of the divine religions, but atheism, and the expression of atheism in our times (is) Darwinism and materialism," it says.

\"'Atlas of Creation' offers over 500 pages of splendid images comparing fossils with present-day animals to argue that Allah created all life as it is and evolution never took place.\"

So, it's essentially a combination of coffeetable art book and the world's largest comicbook.


\"Then comes a book-length essay arguing that Darwinism, by stressing the \"survival of the fittest,\" has inspired racism, Nazism, communism and terrorism.\"

Whether or not some persons have put Darwin's work to heinous purposes has not effect upon the truth of Darwin's conclusions.


\"'The root of the terrorism that plagues our planet is not any of the divine religions, but atheism, and the expression of atheism in our times (is) Darwinism and materialism,' it says.\"

Well then, it is wrong.
I know of no cases were anyone has been shot or blown up in the name of atheism.
Darwin's use of the word \"races\" does not refer to human races, but to all animal species.
Darwin makes no references to atheism, pro or con.

The Atlas of Creation sounds like just another piece of creationist propaganda, lightly researched and infused with creationist \"urban legends.\"

Yeah, Stalin was such a Darwinist. Does the name \"Lysenko\" ring any bells?

Sorry dude, Osmama is using Allah for his excuse, not Darwin.

Just, seriously, no.

Now quit destroying my irony detectors.

What I was fearing, first fundie Christian, now muslims, and give time to buddists and hindus.............Are they actually interconnected, same spurious arguments?(but using computers nonetheless)

A little cynic after seeing how Osama and his bunch kill in the name of atheism?

Yeah and nuclear power a really good power source shown to be so by France has been used for war. That does not mean it is evil itself.

Racism and terrorism predates Darwin by millenia. Nazis were Christian, and thus not atheist. And Communism isn't \"bad\", it just doesn't work because people are greedy, lazy little fucks.

... to argue that Allah created all life as it is and evolution never took place.

Wait. I thought it was the Jewish god that created the world, not the Muslim. You know what? Before you push all this creation rubbish, can you at least agree on WHICH GOD created the world? It would make your crap much easier to argue and ultimately demolish.

Yes, the phrase \"Darwin Akbar\" is a well known atheist expression. It is sometimes shouted by suicide bombers before they blow themselves up.

Really.

In whatever universe this individual comes from.
