In Harun Yahya's "Common Material, Design and Designer," which appeared in the August 2000 issue of the magazine, the latest developments in the Genome Project were discussed. The following is an extract from the article:


Kosovo, Serbia, Macedonia Triangle - May 2001

"The recent completion of the human gene map within the scope of the Human Genome Project is an important scientific development. However, some results of this project are being distorted in some evolutionist publications. It is claimed that the genes of chimpanzees are 98% similar to human genes, and this is presented as an evidence for the claim that apes are close to humans, and therefore, logical ancestors of humans as claimed by Darwin's theory of evolution. The argument is misleading… The claim of 98% similarity is deceptive. To claim that the genetic make-ups of man and chimpanzee bear 98% similarity to each other the genome of the chimpanzee also has to be mapped just as that of man and the two have to be compared. However no such comparison results are available, because, so far, only the gene of the human has been mapped. No such research for the chimpanzee has been done yet. …Darwinists are distorting the results of the Human Genome Project. Life did not originate as a result of unconscious coincidences as evolution claims, but as the result of the creation of Allah, the Almighty, the Owner of infinite knowledge and wisdom."

Pakıstan - Renaıssance

Harun Yahya's "Pondering on the Qur'an" appeared in the September, 2000, issue of this English-language magazine published in Pakistan. Below is an extract from that article:

"Therefore, what is needed in the first place is to correct the wrong point of view about the Qur'an and make people understand that the Qur'an is not a book which is addressed only to the Prophet (sws) but to all people who consider themselves Muslims. Any person who utters this statement: "I'm a Muslim, alhamdulillah" must read the Qur'an and try to understand the meaning of the verses. In the Qur'an, the importance of learning verses and reciting them are especially emphasized.

...Some people believe that the Qur'an addresses only Muslims of the 7th century and some others think that only a small part of the verses addresses people other than the Muslims of the 7th century. A person having such an approach gets satisfied with reading the Qur'an and thinks he fulfils his religious duties by doing so. However, this is not only a matter of learning what is inside of the Qur'an, but also putting them into practice, fulfilling the duties ordered in the Qur'an, adapting moral standards explained in the Qur'an;briefly, bringing the Qur'an into one's own everyday life."

Pakıstan - Albalagh

The August, 1999, issue of the monthly magazine Albalagh published in Pakistan, carried Harun Yahya's article "Hell." Here is a paragraph from that article:

books of harun yahya

"As many beauties and blessings there are in Paradise, that much ugliness and torment Hell is full with. Those who have denied Allah as their Creator are punished with an endless penalty in Hell. ...The common characteristic of the unbelievers who deserve Hell is their rejection when they have been invited to religion."

The March, 2000, issue published Harun Yahya's "The Expansion of the Universe," and in the April, 2000, issue an article entitled "About the Rain" appeared.

This article uses scientific discoveries and relevant verses from the Qur'an to show that every year the same amount of rain falls on the earth and that the stages in the formation of rain correspond to the Qur'an.

"Past Civilizations," serialized in the May and June, 2000, issues gives an account of some of the destructive events suffered by those who denied God and ascribed partners to Him.

An article by Harun Yahya entitled "Righteous Deeds" appeared in the August, 2000, issue. With reference to the Qur'an, the article maintains that believers must do righteous deeds.

In the September, 2000, issue, the article "Pondering" led readers to ponder on the proofs of God's existence in the universe.

In their quest to fool others into believing the fallacy of evolution, they resort to the most deceptive means."

Kenya - Iqra Islamıc Journal



June - October 2001

Iqra Islamic Journal is published every four months in Kenya. In the June-October, 2001, issue Harun Yahya's article "A Living Planet: The Earth" appeared in it. Below is an excerpt from that article:

"The 77% of nitrogen, 21% oxygen and 1% of carbon dioxide as well as other gasses readily available in the atmosphere represent the ideal figures necessary for the survival of living beings. Oxygen, a gas that is vital for living beings, helps food to be burned and converted into energy in our bodies.

If the oxygen quantity in the atmosphere were greater than 21%, the cells in our body would soon start to suffer great damages. The vegetation and hydrocarbon molecules needed for life would also be destroyed. If this quantity were less, then this would cause difficulties in our respiration, and the food we eat would not be converted into energy. Therefore, the 21% of oxygen in the atmosphere is the most ideal quantity determined for life."

In the November 2001 - February 2002 edition of the journal, a review of Harun The Creation of the Universe was published. That review said:

"In this world of modern science where old beliefs and values are fast eroding, Harun Yahya's book is like a textbook. A must for all our boys and girls who today are seeking knowledge all over the world and being indoctrinated into the scientific world where Allah does not exist."

USA - Iqra

Iqra is the magazine of the South Bay Islamic Organization (SBIA) in San Jose, California, a non-profit organization dedicated to weaving the universal teachings of Islam into the fabric of American society. Harun Yahya's article published in the April, 2002, issue of the magazine was titled "In Every Age There Existed an Ignorant Society". An extract from the article reads:.

From the time man was created, there have always been two distinct societies:the ignorant society and the community of believers. All those who fail to observe the limits set by religion, constitute the ignorant society. Despite discrepancies in beliefs, thoughts and ways of living, one fundamental rationale lays the groundwork for the life of all ignorant societies:not to adhere to true religion.

Poland - The Muslım world revıew

In the April, 1999, issue of this magazine, an article was carried entitled "Co-operation Between Animals and Plants," which discussed the life that plants and animals have in common. Here is an extract from that article:

"..One good example is the pitcher plant (Nepenthes bicalcarata) that grows in Eastern India. This plant, that is exactly in the shape of carafe, houses ant colonies in its body. It feeds on insects by seizing the ones that perch on it, captures them and in the end digests them. On the other hand, the guest ants have privilege for this carnivorous plant. The pitcher plant ignores the existence of ants in an incomprehensible manner. Truly the ants and the plant have a deal with each other for their mutual benefit. The ants are under the threat of being eaten by the plant, nevertheless they have gained a home for themselves. On the other hand, the plant leaves remnants of some tissues and insects for the ants and in return, it gains the right to get protected from its enemies by the ants. This example defines the main features of symbiosis between the ants and the plant. The anatomy and physiological structures of the ants and the plant hosting them are so designed as to provide a mutual relationship. However the evolutionists claim that such relationship gradually became widespread in millions of years, assuming an obvious illogical thesis that two living beings lacking intelligence made an agreement and planned such 'mutual benefit' system-somehow."

In one of its issues, the magazine presented the author Harun Yahya with an article titled "Who is Adnan Oktar?"
