Celal Sengor is right! Darwinism was founded on a momentous lie

In his column in the 26 June, 2009 issue of Cumhuriyet Bilim Teknik magazine, Celal Sengor published a piece titled “The Difficulty with Being Human.”  In the article, Sengor, maintained that “lies” constitute the starting point for a great many discoveries and inventions, and that important scientific finds had been made as a result of them. On the basis of that, Sengor then reached the totally illogical conclusion that “it is impossible to be human without imagining something false to be true and giving expression to that.” 
At this point, Sengor, who has followed a false logic this far and reached the conclusion that “one cannot be human without lying,” was right about one thing: he pointed to Darwinism as evidence for the claim in question. He said that Darwin had come out with a lie. He admitted that Darwin’s theory was a lie put forward in the climate of ignorance of the 19th century, a kind of intellectual adventure. And in that he was absolutely right. 
Darwin said he had “found a scientific theory” at a time when nobody even knew what the cell looked like and when the biro had not yet even been invented. All he had actually done was to embark on an aimless ship voyage, drink with the crew from morning till night and collect insects for his own amusement on the islands they stopped off at. As Darwin openly states in his autobiography, he took no interest in these specimens he collected, just setting them to one side and getting on with his youthful adventure.  In his letters he frequently said that he had made his claim under the spirit of that adventure, that it was nonsensical and that he was about to commit suicide because of it. He was unaware that the cell, which he imagined to be a balloon full of water, was actually just as complex as a whole galactic system. That was why he saw nothing wrong in maintaining that the cell came into existence by chance. He was unaware of the laws of genetics. He therefore imagined that acquired characteristics could be passed on to later generations. On the basis of that error, he then put forward the lie that living things turned into one another, sought to convince himself of that, and therefore spent the whole of his life in a state of surprise at the total absence of transitional fossils.
As Sengor says, Darwin made his name with a lie. But where Sengor is mistaken is that no great discovery was then made as the result of that lie and, on the contrary, that lie continued to grow and spread.  Celal Sengor will be perfectly well aware that the details of genetic science were discovered after Darwin’s time. Genetics and microbiology have shown the existence in living things of such extraordinary structures as the cell membrane, ribosomes, mitochondria, DNA, chloroplasts and protein. They have also shown it is statistically impossible for a single protein to form by chance.  It has been realized that not even the smallest and most basic components of the cell can be manufactured in the laboratory environment. The second greatest blow to Darwinism came from the science of paleontology. More than 250 million fossils have been unearthed since Darwin’s time. And Darwinists have seen been stunned and shocked by the revelation to the whole world in the works of Harun Yahya that NOT ONE OF THESE IS A TRANSITIONAL FOSSIL.

Archaeopteryx and Tiktaalik rosaea are fossils that Darwinists speculated about for a long time. But detailed examination of the fossils revealed that they were complete and perfect life forms with no transitional characteristics.

When this fact is brought out into the open, Darwinists develop their own unique defense mechanism and point to Archaeopteryx and Tiktaalik Rosaea as saviors, even though these actually harbor no transitional features whatsoever. (These are the only vehicles for speculation in their possession.) Sengor sought shelter in the same technique, and as soon as the lack of transitional fossils was raised he tried to depict these two fossils as findings actually corroborating Darwin’s false theory. BUT THIS IS A DECEPTION. 
Darwinist claims on the subject of Archaeopteryx have been discredited with wide-ranging evidence. It has been established that this life form was a perfect flying bird and, more importantly, perfect birds living contemporaneously with Archaeopteryx have totally eliminated the claims regarding transition in question. You can access detailed information about the invalidity of Darwinist claims regarding Archaeopteryx here.
Tiktaalik Rosaea, on the other hand, is a perfect mosaic form. It possesses not a single intermediate characteristic, and all the fossil’s characteristics show that is a perfect, but extinct life form.  Detailed statements on the subject have been made many times before, and all the speculation regarding Tiktaalik rosaea has been utterly refuted. You can read detailed information about the invalidity of Darwinist claims about Tiktaalik rosaea here.
Celal Sengor is without doubt well aware of the facts listed above, that Archaeopteryx and Tiktaalik rosaea are not transitional forms and, furthermore, Darwinists HAVE NOT A SINGLE TRANSITIONAL FORM IN THEIR POSSESSION. But because of his devotion to Darwinist ideology he thinks he needs to defend these false claims. Sengor should bear this fact in mind: DARWINISM BEGAN WITH A LIE AND BECAME AN EVEN GREATER LIE AS IT GREW AND THRIVED. And, most important of all, THE WHOLE WORLD HAS NOW WORKED OUT, WITH DEFINITIVE AND SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE, THAT DARWINISM IS A LIE. There is now nobody who does not know that Darwinism is a fraud. Darwinism is now the butt of jokes. Not even children believe the theory or are taken in by its speculation. And defending that lie merely degrades the followers of Darwinism, and even makes them utterly ridiculous. Two hundred fifty million fossils show that Allah created living things with their present-day appearances, in a single moment and out of nothing. And the demagoguery employed to defend Darwinism just looks utterly helpless.
Celal Sengor is also mistaken on this point; the great discoveries he refers to were not developed on the basis of a lie, but of false or deficient information.  The people who made the discoveries produced hypotheses in an effort to understand something, and then intended to arrive at an accurate conclusion by way of RESEARCH AND INVESTIGATION. For example, a scientific discovery was made at a time when the Earth was thought to be flat; it was realized that the Earth is spherical, and nobody has to date objected to the evidence proving this. Therefore, none of the discoverers in question have defended a lie devoid of any scientific evidence in the way Darwin did, nor insisted on spreading a lie that had been refuted by the scientific evidence. It is not possible to be human by lying, as Sengor imagines, but rather by acting honestly, espousing the truth and by never departing from the truth, even if the prevailing conditions will place one in a difficult position.  It is fear of Allah that is needed for this. What makes people human is to listen to the voice of their consciences, and not to suppress their consciences when all the evidence points to a single truth, in favor of falsity and superstition. 

Do not mix up truth with falsehood and knowingly hide the truth. (Surat al-Baqara, 42)
