NEVER FORGET THAT THE WORLD IS A TEMPORARY PLACE AND A TEST
The life of the world is nothing but a game and a diversion. The abode of the hereafter-that is truly Life if they only knew. (Surat al-'Ankabut, 64)
Never forget that everything on the face of the earth is created for a purpose. It is a most definite fact that everything you see around you serves a special purpose. There is also a purpose for which you and the rest of humanity exists:
He Who created death and life to test which of you is best in action. He is the Almighty, the Ever-Forgiving. (Surat al-Mulk, 2)
As the verse above explains, Allah placed man temporarily in this world to test him. He tests us with what we experience in life; He creates this life in order that believers may be distinguished from the non-believers, and by which they may be purified of evil, and worthy of the reward of Paradise. In other words, the world is merely a testing-ground where we can earn the good pleasure of Allah.
Allah has made clear the limits to observe, and the behaviour by which He is pleased or displeased. Accordingly, a person's temperament in this world determines his rewards or punishment in the hereafter.
Therefore, every single passing moment brings us closer to either Paradise or Hell. As such, never forget that you are being tested, even right at this moment, and that the result of this test will determine your afterlife. Also, never forget that this result is very near. Allah reminds us of this fact in several verses and warns His servants against that day:
You who believe! Heed Allah and let each self look to what it has sent forward for Tomorrow. Heed Allah. Allah is aware of what you do. (Surat al-Hashr, 18)
Allah warns people against not being greedily attached to the temporary and alluring joys of this world. That is because, neither wealth, beauty nor social status, that is, nothing a man possesses in this world, will be of help to him in the hereafter. He will leave behind everything he had, including his body. His body will decay in the earth; the possessions of which he had been so proud will be unable to resist the irrepressible damage of time. All alone, he will be brought to the presence of his Lord to give an account of his deeds.
However, despite this apparent reality, engrossed with everyday routines, the majority of people totally forget the truth of death and the hereafter; they assume their life to be confined to this world only. This attitude is explained in the Qur'an as follows:
They say, "There is nothing but our existence in the world. We die and we live and nothing destroys us except for time." They have no knowledge of that. They are only conjecturing. (Surat al-Jathiyya, 24)
However, these people disregard one crucial fact; the life of this world is actually quite brief. Consider a man in his thirties. If he were to consider his life, it would certainly seem that it was a "fleeting." If he were asked what he thinks about those 30 years, he would simply remark that everything has passed so quickly. If he were asked to tell his story, his reminiscences would only add up to a few hours talk. This man will probably have 30 more years to experience, and which will pass as quickly as his past days. In many verses, Allah draws our attention to the brevity of this life and informs us that people will admit this fact in the hereafter:
On the day We gather them together-when it will seem if they had tarried no more than an hour of a single day... (Surah Yunus, 45)
On the Day the Last Hour arrives, the evildoers will swear they have not even tarried for an hour. That is the extent to which they are deceived. (Surat ar-Rum, 55)
To hinder man from undue attachment to this world, Allah has installed various flawed and undesirable elements into this life, and thus stressed the temporary nature of this world. This is certainly one of the subjects over which man has to reflect; anything you cherish or deem valuable in this life ages, your loved ones pass, one after another, even the most beautiful people around you grow old, become sick or fall weak... The moments you so much enjoyed, or those you had so looked forward to, are all now part of the past. That also applies to the most trying times you experienced. It will also hold true for your future experiences, the course of the rest of your life, which will seem as brief as the blink of an eye. You will continually be tested, a test that will go on until death catches up with you... Then, as every man who has ever entered this world, you will be repaid in full for what you have done, and thus your eternal life will begin.
However, man never desires anything beautiful or enjoyable to fade. Yet, in this fleeting life, such a wish cannot be fulfilled. So, how can one attain them? Paradise is the only place where they will be realized.
Never forget that the world is not the proper place to fulfil these desires. If you truly yearn for the ever-lasting favours, never forget that you must not pursue the life of this world, but seek the hereafter by preparing yourself for it.
Disbelievers who are ignorant of these facts, however, try to confine everything they desire into this temporary world. Such pursue aims founded in the perverted belief that death brings an end to this world. Thus, it is in this world that they seek to attain all blessings and pleasures. Fearing that death will deprive them of their desires, they strive to make the most of this life. However, their efforts are vain; this world is utterly deficient. The real abode of man, that is, the hereafter is the place that offers the best and incorruptible favours that man can enjoy; however, all such favours are saved only for true believers who serve Allah and no one else. The favours enjoyed by disbelievers are confined only to this world. The way in which the disbelievers will be exposed to fire is related in the Qur'an as follows:
On the Day when those who were disbelievers are exposed to the Fire: "You dissipated the good things you had in your worldly life and enjoyed yourself in it. So today you are being repaid with the punishment of humiliation for being arrogant in the earth without any right and for being deviators." (Surat al-Ahqaf, 20
That is also why the Prophet (pbuh) drew attention to the importance of the accountability of one's self and deeds:
A wise man is the one who calls himself to account (and refrains from doing evil deeds) and does noble deeds to benefit him after death; and the foolish person is the one who subdues himself to his temptations and desires and seeks from Allah the fulfilment of his vain desires. (Tirmidhi)
As related here, nothing could be more important than the deeds done with the effort of avoiding the punishment of fire. In some cases, a student would study hard to graduate, a businessman to acquire great wealth, and yet another would sacrifice anything to attain a prestige. However, there is no guarantee these people will live long enough to attain these goals; that student may not live to see his graduation day, for instance. One thing is certain, however; he will return to his Lord and will have to give an account of his deeds on the Day of Judgment.
As for those who do not expect to meet Us and are content with the life of the world and at rest in it, and those who are heedless of Our Signs, their shelter will be the Fire because of what they earned. (Surah Yunus, 7-8)
Diseases, accidents or old age, of which we must take heed are but evidences that this world is not a place for which we are to feel attachment:
Do they not see that they are tried once or twice in every year? But still they do not turn back. They do not pay heed. (Surat at-Tawba, 126)
As is evident from the verse, "...You desire the goods of the world, whereas Allah desires the hereafter... " (Surat al-Anfal, 67),
Allah repeatedly reminds us that this world is flawed so that Allah's servants can attain the better place in the hereafter:
Never disregard these reminders and keep in mind that you must please Allah to be worthy of bliss for all eternity. Allah has made clear in the Qur'an that those who are attached to the brief life of this world will lose the eternal life in the hereafter:
If anyone desires to cultivate the hereafter, We will increase him in his cultivation. If anyone desires to cultivate the world, We will give him some of it but he will have no share in the hereafter. (Surat ash-Shura, 20)
In His verses, Allah urges people to desire the hereafter, since it is better and longer lasting. (Surah Ta Ha, 131)
All the while, never forget that Allah will grant true believers, who aspire to the life of the hereafter, a good life also in this world. Believers are those who attain Allah's best favours both in this world and in the hereafter:
There is good news for them in the life of the world and in the hereafter... (Surah Yunus, 64)
A HISTORICAL LIE: THE STONE AGE – II
What Will Remain from Our Own Civilization?
Imagine what will be left of today’s great civilizations in hundreds of thousands of years. All our cultural accumulation—paintings, statues and palaces—will all disappear, and barely a trace of our present technology will remain. Many materials designed to resist wear and tear will gradually, under natural conditions, finally begin to succumb. Steel rusts. Concrete decays. Underground facilities collapse, and all materials require maintenance. Now imagine that tens of thousands of years have passed, and they have been subjected to thousands of gallons of rain, centuries of fierce winds, repeated floods and earthquakes. Perhaps all that will remain will be a few giant pieces of carved stone, just like what has come down to us from the past. Or maybe not a trace of our advanced civilizations will be left at all, only from tribes living in Africa, Australia or some other place in the world. If future scientists look at these scattered remains and describe all societies of the period we are living in as “culturally backward,” will they not have departed from the truth?
Or, if someone discovers a work written in Mandarin and concludes, solely on the basis of this text, that the Chinese were a backward race communicating by means of strange signs, will this be any reflection of the true facts?
Consider the example of Auguste Rodin’s statue “The Thinker,” which is familiar to the whole world. Imagine that this statue is re-discovered by archaeologists tens of thousands from now. If those researchers hold their own preconceptions about the beliefs and lifestyle of our society, and lack sufficient historical documentation, they may well interpret this statue in different ways. They may imagine that the members of our civilization worshipped a thinking man, or may claim that the statue represents some mythological deity.
Today, of course, we know that “The Thinker” was a work produced for aesthetic, artistic reasons alone. In other words, if a researcher in tens of thousands of years lacks enough information and holds his own preconceived ideas about the past, it’s impossible for him to arrive at the truth, because he will interpret “The Thinker” in the light of his preconceptions and form an appropriate scenario. Therefore, evaluating the information at hand without prejudice or bias, avoiding all forms of preconception, and thinking in broader terms is of the greatest importance.
Never forget, we have no evidence that societies evolve or that societies in the past were primitive. These suggestions consist solely of conjecture and are based solely on analysis by historians and archaeologists who support evolution. For example, drawings of animals on a 30,000-year-old cave wall were immediately described as primitive drawings by cavemen. Yet these pictures may well say volumes about the aesthetic understanding of the humans at that time. An artist wearing the most modern clothing for the time may have produced them solely for artistic reasons alone. Indeed, many scientists now emphasize the impossibility of these same cave drawings as being the work of a primitive mind.
Another example is the interpretation of sharp-edged stones as the first tools made by “ape-men.” People at that time may have shaped these stones and used for decorative purposes. There is no proof, only an assumption, that the pieces found were definitely used by these people as tools.
Evolutionist scientists have examined the evidence found during excavations from a biased perspective. They have played about with some fossils that, in their own view, prove their theories, and have ignored or even discarded others. Similar games have been played to demonstrate that Mankind’s history evolved as well.i The American anthropologist Melville Herskovits describes how the “evolution of history” thesis emerged and the way that evolutionists interpret the evidence:
Every exponent of cultural evolution provided an hypothetical blueprint of the progression he conceived as having marked the development of mankind, so that many examples of nonlinear sequences have been recorded. Some of these progressions were restricted to a single aspect of culture, as has been indicated. ii
One of the most important examples to confirm Herskovits’ view is one study carried out by the evolutionist ethnographer Lewis Henry Morgan, who examined the phases a society undergoes to achieve the patriarchal and monogamous structure that, he claimed, had “evolved” from the primitive to the more developed. But in carrying out this research, he used for his examples different societies from all over the globe, entirely unconnected from one another. He then set them out in accord with the result he wanted to achieve. It’s clear that from the hundreds of thousands of cultures in the world, he selected only those compatible with his preconceived thesis.
Then Herskovits illustrates how Morgan re-arranged history to validate his ideas. Starting with the very primitive matrilineal Australians, he drew a line leading to the patrilineal American Indians. He then moved his sequence to Grecian tribes of the proto-historic period, when descent was firmly established in the male line, but with no strict monogamy. The last entry in his ascending scale was represented by modern civilization—with descent in the male line and strict monogamy.
Herskovits comments on this imaginary sequence:
But this series, from the point of view of a historical approach, is quite fictitious… iii
The Advanced Art in Caves
Evolutionists maintain that some 30-40,000 years ago in Europe, and in a rather earlier period in Africa, so-called ape-like humans experienced a sudden process of transition, and suddenly acquired the ability to think and produce things, just like modern human beings. This is because archaeological findings from that period offer significant evidence that the theory of evolution cannot explain. According to Darwinist claims, the technology of stone implements, which had remained unchanged for almost 200,000 years, was suddenly replaced by a more advanced and rapidly developing hand-crafted technology. So-called primitive man, who had descended from the trees and begun to modernize only shortly before, suddenly developed artistic talents and began carving or painting pictures of extraordinary beauty and sophistication on cave walls and produced exceedingly beautiful decorative objects such as necklaces and bracelets.
Scientists carrying out research in caves evaluate these pictures as some of the most important and valuable works in the history of art. The shading in these pictures, the use of perspective and the fine lines employed, the depth of feeling expertly reflected in the reliefs, and the aesthetic patterns that emerge as the sunlight strikes the carvings—all evidence a development that evolutionists are unable to explain because, according to the Darwinist view, such features should have emerged very much later.
The painting techniques employed also show that they did not live under primitive conditions at all. In addition, these paintings on cave walls are no evidence that people of the time lived in those caves. The artists may have lived in elaborate shelters nearby, but chose to create their images on the cave walls. With what emotions and thoughts they selected what to represent is something known only to the artist. Much speculation has been produced regarding these pictures, of which the most unrealistic interpretation is that they were made by beings who were still in a primitive state. Indeed, a report published on the BBC’s Science web page on 22 February, 2000, contained the following lines regarding cave paintings:
… we have always marvelled at them, but thought that they were made by primitive people … But according to two scientists working in South Africa, this view of the ancient painters is totally wrong. They believe the paintings are evidence of a complex and modern society. iv
If many of our present-day artworks were to be analyzed with the same logic in thousands of years’ time, a number of debates might arise over whether 21st-century society was a primitive tribal one or an advanced civilization. If undamaged pictures by modern artists were discovered, 5,000 years on, and if no written documentation regarding the present day had survived, what would people of the future think about our own age?
If people of the future discovered works by Van Gogh or Picasso and judged them from an evolutionist perspective, how would they regard our modern society? Would the landscapes of Claude Monet inspire comments like “Industry had not yet developed, and people led an agricultural way of life,” or comments along the lines of “People still unable to read or write communicated by way of exaggerated blocks of color”? Would the abstract pictures of Wassily Kandinsky lead them to any insights about our present-day society?

EVOLUTION: AN UNSCIENTIFIC FAITH
Recent researches reveal that it is impossible for the bent ape skeleton fit for quadripedal stride to evolve into upright human skeleton fit for bipedal stride.
Lord Solly Zuckerman is one of the most famous and respected scientists in the United Kingdom. For years, he studied the fossil record and conducted many detailed investigations. He was elevated to the peerage for his contributions to science. Zuckerman is an evolutionist. Therefore, his comments on evolution can not be regarded as ignorant or prejudiced. After years of research on the fossils included in the human evolution scenario however, he reached the conclusion that there is no truth to the family tree in that is put forward.
Zuckerman also advanced an interesting concept of the "spectrum of the sciences", ranging from those he considered scientific to those he considered unscientific. According to Zuckerman's spectrum, the most "scientific"-that is, depending on concrete data-fields are chemistry and physics. After them come the biological sciences and then the social sciences. At the far end of the spectrum, which is the part considered to be most "unscientific", are "extra-sensory perception"-concepts such as telepathy and the "sixth sense"-and finally "human evolution". Zuckerman explains his reasoning as follows:
We then move right off the register of objective truth into those fields of presumed biological science, like extrasensory perception or the interpretation of man's fossil history, where to the faithful anything is possible - and where the ardent believer is sometimes able to believe several contradictory things at the same time.1
Robert Locke, the editor of Discovering Archeology, an important publication on the origins of man, writes in that journal, "The search for human ancestors gives more heat than light", quoting the confession of the famous evolutionist paleoantropologist Tim White:
We're all frustrated by "all the questions we haven't been able to answer."2
Locke's article reviews the impasse of the theory of evolution on the origins of man and the groundlessness of the propaganda spread about this subject:
Perhaps no area of science is more contentious than the search for human origins. Elite paleontologists disagree over even the most basic outlines of the human family tree. New branches grow amid great fanfare, only to wither and die in the face of new fossil finds.3
The same fact was also recently accepted by Henry Gee, the editor of the well-known journal Nature. In his book In Search of Deep Time, published in 1999, Gee points out that all the evidence for human evolution "between about 10 and 5 million years ago-several thousand generations of living creatures-can be fitted into a small box." He concludes that conventional theories of the origin and development of human beings are "a completely human invention created after the fact, shaped to accord with human prejudices" and adds:
To take a line of fossils and claim that they represent a lineage is not a scientific hypothesis that can be tested, but an assertion that carries the same validity as bedtime story-amusing, perhaps even instructive, but not scientific.4
What, then, is the reason that make so many scientists so tenacious about this dogma? Why have they been trying so hard to keep their theory alive, at the cost of having to admit countless conflicts and discarding the evidence they have found?
The only answer is their being afraid of the fact they will have to face in case of abandoning the theory of evolution. The fact they will have to face when they abandon evolution is that man has been created by God. However, considering the presuppositions they have and the materialistic philosophy they believe in, creation is an unacceptable concept for evolutionists.
For this reason, they deceive themselves, as well as the world, by using the media with which they co-operate. If they cannot find the necessary fossils, they "fabricate" them either in the form of imaginary pictures or fictitious models and try to give the impression that there indeed exist fossils verifying evolution. A part of mass media who share their materialistic point of view also try to deceive the public and instil the story of evolution in people's subconscious.
No matter how hard they try, the truth is evident: Man has come into existence not through an evolutionary process but by having been created by God. Therefore, he is responsible to Him.

THE SHOCK CAUSED BY ATLAS OF CREATION OR THE RISE OF MUSLIM CREATIONISM - 03.05.2008 - UNITED KINGDOM/ NEW HUMANIST
In its May/June 2008 issue, the magazine New Humanist, which has been published in London ever since 1885, carried an article about the rise of creationism in Europe. The story, by the Danish evolutionist professor Peter C. Kjaergaard, noted the impact Adnan Oktar’s work was having in Europe. Kjaergaard said that “creationists are on the march in Europe”
and went on to report:
On 4 October 2007 the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly passed Resolution 1580, which issued a stark warning: creationism, the denial of Darwinian evolution, is on the rise in Europe. …
But what provoked this European body to issue such an uncharacteristically clear and forthright statement? … Examples cited of a growing creationist influence
ranged from subtle downgrading of evolution in science education to outright attacks on the validity of Darwinism …
… the report also focused its attention on a new phenomenon – the rise of Muslim creationism. The central figure here is the Turkish Muslim creationist Adnan Oktar, who, writing under the pen name Harun Yahya,
has made a career out of attacking Darwinian evolution. … Since 2006 copies of a substantial, glossy and smartly packaged book called Atlas of Creation, credited to Harun Yahya, had been arriving at schools and universities across Europe. In Spain, France, Switzerland and Denmark clear evidence of the growing resources and confidence of European Muslim creationism was thudding on to the mat
. The book is the first of a projected seven-part series, and parts two and three have already begun arriving at educational institutes Europe-wide.
… the shock caused by Atlas of Creation
is largely unrelated to its contents… The real point is that before the book arrived many had no idea there was a resurgent Muslim creationism in Europe…
One thing is clear: creationism has indeed come to Europe …, therefore, we have to take it seriously. … What we have seen so far is just the beginning….
ISLAM IS CONQUERING CUBA / HABER5.COM / 30.09.2007
A programme aired on the German television channel MDR described how Islam is spreading across Cuba. It said that while there were only a few hundred Cuban Muslims just 6 years ago, they now number in thousands. It also noted that Islam is attracting wide interest from young people in particular. The report went on to say that although Cuban Muslims have no mosques of their own as yet, private homes are being turned into Islamic places of worship.
Yahya Pedro Lazo, the imam of Havana, said he was puzzled in the face of rising number of Muslims and that he had turned his own home into a place of worship. The television report concluded by saying it was disappointment caused by the socialist utopia failing to become a reality that underlies the movement towards Islam in Cuba.
Age: 156 to 150 million years old
Size: 1.5 centimeters (0.6 in) (leg to leg ), 0.7 centimeters (0.28 in) (body )
Location: Beipiao, Liaoning Province, China
Period: Upper Jurassic
The oldest known fossil spider is of a water spider, 425 million years old. The fossil pictured is 156 to 150 million years old. Such fossils show that spiders have been the same for hundreds of million years. Darwinists have no consistent and scientific answer for these findings.
AL-FATIR,(The Creator; The Originator)
“O My Lord, You have granted power to me on Earth and taught me the true meaning of events. O Originator of the heavens and Earth, You are my Friend in this world and the next. So take me as a Muslim at my death, and join me to the people who are righteous.” (Surah Yusuf, 101)
Earth has a special design that supports life. Its location in space and its special structure, which meets the needs of all living beings, make it clear that this planet is the product of a superior wisdom. Our planet's living beings show that an astonishing design is inherent in all of them. Gifted with an appropriate bodily structure, every living being lives in a suitable setting.
This aside, as we focus more on the details of their formation, the fact of creation appears more clearly. Each cell, the basic unit of every living being, has a perfect system and such a flawless order that it is a clear refutation of the unbelievers' claim that life somehow created itself or is the result of a series of coincidence.
All that we see around us carries traces of an intelligent and purposeful design—a design that belongs to our Creator: Allah. Our Lord's artistry is visible in any detail. Allah relates His system's inherent perfection, as follows:
He Who created the seven heavens in layers. You will not find any flaw in the creation of the All-Merciful. Look again—do you see any gaps? Then look again and again. Your sight will return to you dazzled and exhausted! (Surat al-Mulk, 3-4)
Say: “Am I to take anyone other than Allah as my protector, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and Earth, He Who feeds and is not fed?” Say: “I am commanded to be the first of the Muslims” and “Do not be among the idolaters.” (Surat al-An‘am, 14)
Their Messengers said: “Is there any doubt about Allah, the Bringer into Being of the heavens and Earth? He summons you to forgive you for your wrong actions and to defer you until a specified time.” They said: “You are nothing but human beings like ourselves who want to debar us from what our fathers worshipped; so bring us a clear authority.” (Surah Ibrahim, 10)
AN INTERVIEW WITH MR. ADNAN OKTAR (HARUN YAHYA) - Istanbul - May 26, 2007
The distribution of Atlas of Creation to many institutions in France... There is not a single intermediate fossil... If saying, "I am against Darwinism" can get one fired from a university, then we can't speak of science... Is Darwin responsible for all the modern wars in the world?... Atlas of Creation had an "atomic bomb effect."... Fearing an idea only makes that idea stronger... Darwin was the person who influenced Hitler... Today, we have hundreds of fossils dating back to millions of years, which have not gone through the slightest change... How many volumes will there be?... Creationists in the United States do not have as strong a structure as is believed...
One of the major reasons why people feel a profound sense of attachment for life and cast religion aside is the assumption that life is eternal. Forgetting that death is likely to put an end to this life at any moment, man simply believes that he can enjoy a perfect and happy life. Yet, he evidently deceives himself. The world is a temporary place specially created by Allah to test man. That is why it is inherently flawed and far from satisfying man’s endless needs and desires. Every attraction existing in the world eventually wears out, becomes corrupt, decays and finally disappears. This is the never-changing reality of life. This book explains this essential nature of life and leads man to ponder the real place to which he belongs, namely the Hereafter.
WISDOM AND SOUND ADVICE FROM THE TORAH
In the Qur’an, Allah (God) reveals that Muslims should believe in Prophet Muhammad (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) and all the prophets sent before him, and in all the scriptures given to those prophets. In verse 4 of Surat al-Baqara, our Lord refers to Muslims as “those who believe in what has been sent down to you and what was sent down before you . . .”
As is mentioned in the Qur’an, the Old and New Testaments, the Psalms and the pages of Prophet Abraham (pbuh) are scriptures sent down to prophets who lived in past centuries. A portion of these books has been lost, and what remains has been corrupted or altered. Nonetheless, they still contain many true and accurate statements regarding the true faith. Muslims evaluate all these statements in the light of the Qur’an and the Sunnah, and consider those to be valid that are compatible with the divine verses and the hadiths. For that reason, Muslims can make use of passages from both the Old and the New Testaments that are compatible with the Qur’an and in agreement with the Sunnah. The fundamental precondition, however, is that they should be compatible with the Qur’an as well as the hadiths.
Allah has revealed that these scriptures were guides for the societies to which they were sent.
In one verse (Surah Al ‘Imran, 3-4), He reveals:
He has sent down the Book to you with truth, confirming what was there before it. And He sent down the Torah and the Gospel, previously, as guidance for humanity, and He has sent down the Furqan. (Surah al ‘Imran, 3-4)
Another verse reveals this about the Old Testament:
We sent down the Torah containing guidance and light, and the prophets who had submitted themselves gave judgment by it for the Jews—as did their scholars and their rabbis—by what they had been allowed to preserve of Allah’s Book to which they were witnesses. (Surat al-Mai’da, 44)
In examining the portents of the End Times in the Old and New Testaments, the corrupted or distorted parts of those scriptures are not considered in this book. Only those passages compatible with the Qur’an and the hadiths of our Prophet (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) have been used.
WHAT DARWINISTS NEVER REALIZE
1-Darwinists never realize that the bone cells, which they maintain came into being through unconscious coincidences, are cells that form the hardness, length, shape, protrusions and interfaces of every bone in the body, and that they do this without ever making an error.
2-The density of the universe, the speed at which it expands, the star systems, the features of the galaxies, their forces of gravity, orbits, courses, speeds and the substances they contain are all built on highly delicate balances and calculations. In the same way, our Earth, the atmosphere that surrounds it, and the way it possesses the ideal structure for human life, are all examples of an extraordinary creation. Yet Darwinists never realize that the slightest variation in these calculations and balances would totally disrupt the entire universe.
3-Darwinists never realize that 500 highly complex functions are carried out in a single liver cell, that the majority of these, which are performed in a flawless succession in a matter of milliseconds, cannot be replicated even under laboratory conditions, and that it is impossible for these functions to have come about by chance.
4-Darwinists never realize how surplus, flawed or diseased cells in the living body destroy themselves, how some dead cells are specially not cleared away by other cells since they can still be of use, or how unconscious cells decide which dead cells they will eliminate and which they will keep, just as if they were intelligent entities.
5-Darwinists never realize that if the speed of expansion of the universe in the wake of the Big Bang had been just one part in a billion billion different (1/1018), the universe would never have emerged at all.
6-The average distance between one another of the stars in our galaxy is 30 million miles (48.280.000 kilometers). Darwinists never realize that if this distance were just slightly less the planets’ orbits would be destabilized, and that if it were any greater the planets would be scattered all around, and that there is an immaculate creation in the universe.
7-Darwinists never realize that if the force of gravity were slightly greater all the large stars in the universe would turn into black holes.
8-Darwinists never realize that a small, pink piece of flesh no larger than a chickpea, known as the pituitary gland, controls all the hormones in our bodies and the hormonal system itself.
9-Darwinists never realize that the growth hormone secreted by the pituitary gland controls the division and growth of trillions of cells in a perfect order, and how it is again this tiny piece of flesh that decides at what stage the body and all its organs should stop growing.
10-Darwinists never realize how mother’s milk meets all the newly born baby’s needs, while baby food manufacturers are still unable to manufacture an equivalent to mother’s milk.
