Darwinism Debunked through Christian-Muslim Alliance

In the aftermath of a bloody attack against Christians that killed dozens in Egypt, we are assured once again that Muslims and Christians should be united against this wrongdoing that targets the innocent in all parts of our world. The evil behind this atrocity asks for more bloodshed and further plots against believers, regardless of their being women, children or the elderly. Such brutality is a display of the materialist philosophy that assigns no value to human life and finds conflict and enmity to be the goal of existence. Covering under various pretenses, the assailants actively plan to sow the seeds of even more widespread conflict amongst believers.

Collaboration for Love

Yet the efforts carried out in the way of collaboration with intellect, love and compassion between people of good conscience will be the true way of eradicating the grassroots of such hatred and ignorance. Islam provides the lawful grounds for Muslims, Christians and Jews to unite in the common word of faith in God. Religion is the essence of loving and brotherly relations between all people, so the real attainment is through the removal of the materialist ignorance with ideas and intellectual efforts.

That is why the 2nd International Conference on The Origin of Life and The Universe, held recently in Istanbul, accomplished much more than expected as Christian and Muslim speakers stood firm in their determination for allying in their service to God, cordiality and benevolent friendship with reason and science.

Collaboration for Creationism

Presenting their years of research in a well-prepared setting of fossil exhibits, books and posters in the conference hall, scientists provided precise evidence for God’s Creation, creationism, and the fallacies of Darwinism in their address to a highly educated audience. As an answer to the question, “What are the origins of life?” the Technics & Science Research Foundation prepared the stage for scientists to freely express their proofs in fields of biochemistry, informatics, genetics, molecular biology, immunology, psychiatry, sociology and neurology.

Dr. Fazale Rana from Reasons to Believe, the prominent Christian organization in California, affirmed his faith in the Creator with his words, “I was convinced that chemical and physical processes alone could not generate life itself. This realization coupled with the elegant design and biochemical systems forced me to that conclusion– for intellectual reasons alone– that a Creator must indeed exist and must have been responsible for bringing life into being.”

And from the same institution, Dr. Anjeanette Roberts, who, with her dedication to science and faith, quoted from the Bible the phrases that pronounce God’s signs in His creation wherever we turn our eyes, “The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known. They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard. Their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.” (Psalms 19:1-4)

Dr. Alberto Cossano also accentuated the irreducible complexity in living organisms resembling the “biological processes operating in the cells inside our body” to software applications and computer programs, all parts of which must be intact in order to be fully functional.

Sociologist Dr. Fabrizio Fratus made an effective stance against the materialist ideology, emphasizing the responsibility to establish “a system with very different values ​​if based on the sense of community and solidarity, as ordained by God.” He criticized Darwin’s theory, saying, “For the materialists, nature is an ongoing war for survival, a battle against their fellow and against other species that every living thing must continually fight.”

The Violence of Evolution

The theory of evolution, unlike creationism, denies the existence of the soul and regards man to be merely a functional apparatus made up of matter and deems the world to be an arena to fight for survival. As Prof. Paolo Cioni put it in his words, “[The] Mind is consequently interpreted by mainstream materialists as nothing more than a byproduct of brain activity.” Claiming man to be a product of matter alone leaves no place for values such as friendship, forgiveness, self-giving or compassion to thrive.

As a matter of fact, the ignorance and philosophy of brutality, war, hatred and conflict that lie in the foundation of Darwinist theory is the reason behind the bloody attack of last week, in the past weeks and in fact, all we encounter. Once humanity realizes that God created us for a specific purpose in this world, to live by the good morals of peace, harmony and love with all human beings, the ongoing troubles will come to an end.

In fact, Mr. Jeff Gardner, who made the closing speech of the conference, elaborated this truth with the following words: “We must proclaim that it is our common, divine nature, that unites us. A divine humanity that has been bequeathed to us all by divine right through the very act of His, our God’s, Creation.”

Hate-mongers and those who seek to incite bloodshed and violence will find no recruits when the egoism and cruelty of the materialist ideology is eradicated in the minds of people.

A Joint Effort to Elaborate on God’s Creation

The International Conference on the Origin of Life and the Universe was held by the Technics & Science Research Foundation in collaboration with Reasons to Believe on August 24th, 2016 in Istanbul. The event hosted scientists from the USA and Turkey as keynote speakers.

With the attendance of academicians, researchers, students and businessmen from various countries, this important international conference took on a remarkable responsibility in highlighting the importance of science and sharing the scientific data conveyed by the latest scientific developments. Hosting leading academicians, all experts in their respective areas, the conference proved that genetics, biology, paleontology, physics, chemistry and astrophysics all answer the question ‘How did life begin?’ with ‘Creation’.

Key Scientific Points Collapsing Evolutionary Dogma

One of the scientists attending the conference, Dr. Fazale Rana, who is a biochemist and the Vice President of Reasons to Believe, delivered his speech, “Why do I believe God exists?” He asserted with the following words, “I was convinced that chemical and physical processes alone could not generate life itself. This realization, coupled with the elegant design and biochemical systems, forced me to the conclusion — for intellectual reasons alone — that a Creator must indeed exist and must have been responsible for bringing life into being.”

The topic of the second speech, given by molecular biologist Dr. Anjeanette Roberts, was “Equivocating Evolution.” Dr. Roberts’ talk was primarily focused on the misuse of some  terms and how the scientific data points to a highly complex, diversified creation, “… Creationism is a reasonable and rational conclusion, concordant with the data, accounting for the diversity and early appearance of complex life. And it also accounts for the fine-tuning and intelligibility of the universe…”

Astrophysicist Dr. Jeff Zweerink made important remarks on ‘The Beginning and Creation of the Universe.’ He said, “However, close inspection of the latest scientific evidence provides strong evidence that God exists. The Torah and prophets describe a universe that began to exist, one governed by constant laws of physics and expanded by God over time. Inflationary big bang cosmology affirms that we live in a universe matching this description. Our universe shows exquisite fine-tuning for life to exist. It looks designed for life!”

In his speech entitled, ‘The Collapse of the Theory of Evolution and the Fact of Creation,’ neurosurgeon Dr. Oktar Babuna affirmed, “The most powerful and fundamental evidence, which refutes Darwinism, is the impossibility of proteins to emerge by chance. The point that really needs to be emphasized here is this: there have to be other proteins for proteins to come into existence. The reason for this is that proteins can only be produced by other proteins that function as enzymes. In order to produce just a single protein molecule, at least 100 different enzymes (proteins), DNA, ribosomes, mitochondria must exist. In other words, a complete living cell with all of its organelles is needed to produce just a single protein.”

Science Is Vital In Observing God’s Creation In The Universe

All these scientific findings point us in the direction of Creation. Albert Einstein once said, “The scientists’ religious feeling takes the form of a rapturous amazement at the harmony of natural law, which reveals an intelligence of such superiority that, compared with it, all the systematic thinking and acting of human beings is an utterly insignificant reflection. The owner of this awe-inspiring intelligence is God.” Actually, we don’t need to hear this truth from a scientist to understand this obvious fact; our own intelligence is enough to show us the existence of a Creator because we all have the capability of assessing what we see and come to a conclusion.

Reason and scientific evidence reveals God’s Creation throughout the universe. All the divine faiths teach us this fact, which makes science compatible with religion. Needless to say, science and technology, which advance at a mind-boggling rate, are our biggest helpers in this understanding. Everywhere we look, we see an incredible order; from the perfect mechanisms of millions of different species to the endless variety of vegetables and fruits, from the delicate balances on our planet to the precise levels of oxygen in the air. Knowing and seeing all of this is enough to make us clearly realize the existence of God, Who has infinite wisdom.

God Informs of His Creation of the Heavens and the Earth in Scripture

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.” (Psalm 19:1-4)

“Everything is obedient to Him. The Originator of the Heavens and Earth. When He decides on something, He just says to it, ‘Be!’ and it is.” (Surat al-Baqara, 117).

In his beautiful and heartfelt words praising our Lord’s great artistry, Dr. AJ Roberts summarizes how believers from all walks of life use their insight in appreciating God’s Creation: “Nature is a reliable revelation of God. The Scriptures tell us that God reveals Himself in nature. And He has created us for inquiry and discovery. He wants to be known. In conclusion, God wants to be known and He has revealed Himself clearly to those who have an open mind and a humble heart.”

Be they Christian or Muslim, believers are in awe and take great pleasure in contemplating  God’s Signs day and night, knowing that science is a great tool and a blessing for us all.
