The Obvious Truth: Creation
science demolishes the theory of evolution which seeks to explain
forms of life as chance developments, it demonstrates in the process
that there is a perfect creation in nature. All living things came
into being by God's creation.
A CELL TO A HUMAN BEING
The creation of man in the mother's womb is a miracle
on its own. The union of the sperm and the ovum forms a
living cell. Then this cell multiplies. The multiplying
cells start to differentiate by a secret order. They are
arranged and ordered to form bones, eyes, the heart, vessels
or the skin. At the end of this intricate process, a single
cell turns into a perfect human being. Referring to this
creation, God calls out to man:
"O man! What has deluded you in respect of your Noble Lord?
He Who created you and formed you and proportioned you and
assembled you in whatever way He willed." (Surat al-Infitar:
The theory of evolution maintains that life is
the work of "chance". However, all the scientific evidence
we have reviewed in this book shows that this is untrue and life
is created with a design too superior to be explained away by chance.
The belief in "chance" was born in
the 19th century, when life was supposed to be simple, and it was
carried into the 20th century for ideological purposes. Today, however,
the scientific community acknowledges how nonsensical this claim
is, and a great number of scientists admit that life is the work
of a superior Creator. Chandra Wickramasinghe describes the reality
he faced as a scientist who had been inculcated into believing in
the myth of "chance" for years:
CREATION OF THE CAMEL
In the Qur'an, God says "Have they not looked at the
camel - how it was created?" (Surat al-Gashiyah: 17). When
we look at the camel, we see that this animal is specially
created for desert conditions. It has a metabolism that
enables it to live without water for weeks, it has special
tissues to protect its body from the burning sand, and it
has even special eyebrow systems that will curtain its eyes
against sand storms.
From my earliest training as a scientist, I was
very strongly brainwashed to believe that science cannot be consistent
with any kind of deliberate creation. That notion has had to be
painfully shed. At the moment, I can't find any rational argument
to knock down the view which argues for conversion to God. We used
to have an open mind; now we realize that the only logical answer
to life is creation-and not accidental random shuffling.69
One does not need to visit biochemistry laboratories
or fossil beds to be able to see this obvious truth. Anyone may
see the fact of creation in any part of the world he examines by
using his conscience and reason. He can easily understand the infinite
wisdom, knowledge and power of his Creator by simply thinking how
he grew into a human being who is able to read and understand these
lines considering that he was just a drop in the beginning.
No one came to this world by chance. God, the
Lord of all the worlds, created the entire universe and all of mankind.
God describes His creative power in the Qur'an, which He sent down
to people as a guide.
INSPIRATION OF HONEYBEES
Honeybees display an extraordinary architectural skill.
The hexagonal cells they build are based on complex mathematical
calculations. They use a system whereby they can do the maximum
storage with the minimum material. The interesting aspect
of the cells is that honeybees start to build the cells from
different points and meet in the middle. However, there is
no discord at the intersection point. This situation shows
that bees are governed from a single centre. God states in
the Qur'an that bees act upon His inspiration: "Your Lord
inspired the bees: 'Build dwellings in the mountains and the
trees, and also in the structures which men erect. Then eat
from every kind of fruit and travel the paths of your Lord,
made easy for you to follow.' From their bellies comes a drink
of varying colours, containing healing for mankind. There
is certainly a sign in that for people who reflect." (Surat
Mankind! An example has been made, so listen
to it carefully. Those whom you call upon besides God are not even
able to create a single fly, even if they were to join together
to do it. And if a fly steals something from them, they cannot get
it back. How feeble are both the seeker and the sought! They do
not measure God with His true measure. God is All-Powerful, Almighty.
(Surat al-Hajj: 73-74)
