/)out the /uthor
(o4 4riting under the pen&name o 8%R6( $%8$%5 %dnan O,tar 4as born in %n,ara in "/32. 8aving completed his primary and secondary education in %n,ara5 he studied arts at !stanbul>s Mimar Sinan 6niversity and philosophy at !stanbul 6niversity. Since the "/?#s5 he has published many boo,s on political5 scienti ic5 and aith&related issues. 8arun $ahya is 4ell& ,no4n as the author o important 4or,s disclosing the imposture o evolutionists5 their invalid claims5 and the dar, liaisons bet4een 9ar4inism and such bloody ideologies as ascism and communism. 8arun $ahya>s 4or,s5 translated into 3) di erent languages5 constitute a collection or a total o more than '35### pages 4ith @#5### illustrations. 8is pen&name is a composite o the names 8arun -%aron1 and $ahya -Aohn15 in memory o the t4o esteemed prophets 4ho ought against their peoples> lac, o aith. The Prophet>s -may %llah bless him and grant him peace1 seal on his boo,s> covers is symbolic and is lin,ed to their contents. !t represents the :ur>an -the =inal Scripture1 and Prophet Muhammad -may %llah bless him and grant him peace15 last o the prophets. 6nder the guidance o the :ur>an and the Sunnah -teachings o the Prophet15 the author ma,es it his purpose to disprove each undamental tenet o irreligious ideologies and to have the Blast 4ord5B so as to completely silence the obCections raised against religion. 8e uses the seal o the inal Prophet -may %llah bless him and grant him peace15 4ho attained ultimate 4isdom and moral per ection5 as a sign o his intention to o er the last 4ord. %ll o 8arun $ahya>s 4or,s share one single goal: to convey the :ur>an>s message5 encourage readers to consider basic aith&related issues such as %llah>s eDistence and unity and the 8erea terE and to eDpose irreligious systems> eeble oundations and perverted ideologies. 8arun $ahya enCoys a 4ide readership in many countries5 rom !ndia to %merica5 England to !ndonesia5 Poland to *osnia5 Spain to *razil5 Malaysia to !taly5 =rance to *ulgaria and Russia. Some o his boo,s are available in English5 =rench5 Ferman5 Spanish5 !talian5 Portuguese5 6rdu5 %rabic5 %lbanian5 Chinese5 S4ahili5 8ausa5 9hivehi -spo,en in Mauritius15 Russian5 Serbo&Croat -*osnian15 Polish5 Malay5 6ygur Tur,ish5 !ndonesian5 *engali5 9anish and S4edish. Freatly appreciated all around the 4orld5 these 4or,s have been instrumental in many people recovering aith in %llah and gaining deeper insights into their aith. 8is boo,s> 4isdom and sincerity5 together 4ith a distinct style that>s easy to understand5 directly a ect anyone 4ho reads them. Those 4ho seriously consider these boo,s5 can no longer advocate atheism or any other perverted ideology or materialistic philosophy5 since these boo,s are characterized by rapid e ectiveness5 de inite results5 and irre utability. Even i they continue to do so5 it 4ill be only a sentimental insistence5 since these boo,s re ute such ideologies rom their very oundations. %ll contemporary movements o denial are no4 ideologically de eated5 than,s to the boo,s 4ritten by 8arun $ahya.
This is no doubt a result o the :ur>an>s 4isdom and lucidity. The author modestly intends to serve as a means in humanity>s search or %llah>s right path. (o material gain is sought in the publication o these 4or,s. Those 4ho encourage others to read these boo,s5 to open their minds and hearts and guide them to become more devoted servants o %llah5 render an invaluable service. Mean4hile5 it 4ould only be a 4aste o time and energy to propagate other boo,s that create con usion in people>s minds5 lead them into ideological chaos5 and that clearly have no strong and precise e ects in removing the doubts in people>s hearts5 as also veri ied rom previous eDperience. !t is impossible or boo,s devised to emphasize the author>s literary po4er rather than the noble goal o saving people rom loss o aith5 to have such a great e ect. Those 4ho doubt this can readily see that the sole aim o 8arun $ahya>s boo,s is to overcome disbelie and to disseminate the :ur>an>s moral values. The success and impact o this service are mani ested in the readers> conviction. One point should be ,ept in mind: The main reason or the continuing cruelty5 con lict5 and other ordeals endured by the vast maCority o people is the ideological prevalence o disbelie . This can be ended only 4ith the ideological de eat o disbelie and by conveying the 4onders o creation and :ur>anic morality so that people can live by it. Considering the state o the 4orld today5 leading into a do4n4ard spiral o violence5 corruption and con lict5 clearly this service must be provided speedily and e ectively5 or it may be too late. !n this e ort5 the boo,s o 8arun $ahya assume a leading role. *y the 4ill o %llah5 these boo,s 4ill be a means through 4hich people in the t4enty& irst century 4ill attain the peace5 Custice5 and happiness promised in the :ur>an.
To the 5eader
% special chapter is assigned to the collapse o the theory o evolution because this theory constitutes the basis o all anti&spiritual philosophies. Since 9ar4inism reCects the act o creation G and there ore5 %llah>s eDistence G over the last "3# years it has caused many people to abandon their aith or all into doubt. !t is there ore an imperative service5 a very important duty to sho4 everyone that this theory is a deception. Since some readers may ind the chance to read only one o our boo,s5 4e thin, it appropriate to devote a chapter to summarize this subCect. %ll the author>s boo,s eDplain aith&related issues in light o :ur>anic verses5 and invite readers to learn %llah>s 4ords and to live by them. %ll the subCects concerning %llah>s verses are eDplained so as to leave no doubt or room or Huestions in the reader>s mind. The boo,s> sincere5 plain5 and luent style ensures that everyone o every age and rom every social group can easily understand them. Than,s to their e ective5 lucid narrative5 they can be read at one sitting. Even those 4ho rigorously reCect spirituality are in luenced by the acts these boo,s document and cannot re ute the truth ulness o their contents. This and all the other boo,s by the author can be read individually5 or discussed in a group. Readers eager to pro it rom the boo,s 4ill ind discussion very use ul5 letting them relate their re lections and eDperiences to one another. !n addition5 it 4ill be a great service to !slam to contribute to the publication and reading o these boo,s5 4ritten solely or the pleasure o %llah. The author>s boo,s are all eDtremely convincing. =or this reason5 to communicate true religion to others5 one o the most e ective methods is encouraging them to read these boo,s. <e hope the reader 4ill loo, through the revie4s o his other boo,s at the bac, o this boo,. 8is rich source material on aith&related issues is very use ul5 and a pleasure to read. !n these boo,s5 unli,e some other boo,s5 you 4ill not ind the author>s personal vie4s5 eDplanations based on dubious sources5 styles that are unobservant o the respect and reverence due to sacred subCects5 nor hopeless5 pessimistic arguments that create doubts in the mind and deviations in the heart.
2ntrodu(tion6 5e(ogni7ing the Danger of Satanism
Originating in the ")##;s5 satanism has recently made itsel ,no4n once again in acts o horror5 violence and suicide. %t irst glance5 the 4ay in 4hich satanists describe themselves5 their outloo, on li e5 their values5 and their horrible culture o bloodshed may seem incredible to people. *ut current events sho4 that this perversion is a gro4ing danger. Satanists o ten identi y themselves by the rightening ma,e&up and out its they 4ear. The media reports their bloody rites5 depicting disHuieting scenes o the slaughter o animals5 torture o humans5 rape and suicide. <hen these ,inds o ne4s reports are brought together5 a rightening picture appears. !t may come as a surprise that people accept that this perverse 4ay o li e and thin,ing can be called a religion. 8o4 is this possibleI 8o4 can anyone thin, that per orming evil acts5 inCuring animals and other human beings and creating a 4orld o ear and dar,ness to live in can give any purpose to li eJmuch less be called a religionI Many people are interested in see,ing an ans4er to this Huestion5 but they tend to loo, in the 4rong places. !n order to understand ho4 satanism developed and came to in luence such masses o people5 4e must eDamine every aspect o this dar, religion and uncover its underlying philosophy. 8o4 can people accept its perversityI Contrary to 4hat many thin,5 satanism is not merely the creation o some psychologically unbalanced young peopleE they have been dra4n into a philosophy that makes them unbalanced. %nd as detailed evidence in the ollo4ing pages 4ill sho45 this philosophy regards human beings as merely a species o animal. !t regards nature as cruel5 and teaches that human beings must be cruel as 4ell. !t is a message that aligns 4ith the Social 9ar4inism. 9uring our eDamination o satanism5 this act should not be orgotten. This boo, 4ill eDamine satanism in all its aspects. 8o4 can a philosophy that turns violence and horror into a religious ritual and bloodshed into an act o 4orship be so 4idespreadI <e 4ill sho4 that the starting point o satanism is opposition to religion: Those 4ho support this perversity have been brought up outside the practice o religious morality and been in luenced by materialism. !n act5 satanism is 4idespread and has an in luence on young people particularly. *ut it is Huite 4rong to thin, that nothing can be done about it. !ndeed5 it is Huite simple to counter this perversity: The moral teachings o the :ur;an are the only 4ay to rescue people rom the grip o satanism. The light o the :ur;an can destroy satanism and5 i %llah -Fod1 4ills5 create a 4orld o enlightenment5 love and peace.
/d8o(ates of Satan in the Qur’an
Once again5 the increasing instances o satanic murders and suicides in many countries have made many people curious about 4hat satanism really is. *ut the research5 discussions and publications attempting to ans4er this Huestion have not gone very ar. Satanism has o ten been depicted as a strange movement among psychologically disturbed youth 4ho are marginalized and alienated rom their amilies and riends. *ut to reduce satanism to such a simple basic denominator phenomenon and not to ma,e the public amiliar 4ith the violent side o this perverse religion is a grave omission. Contrary to much that has been 4ritten and said about it5 satanism has deep roots and rests on a dar, philosophy. !t has designs upon the uture o the 4orld5 and its dar, church 4ith its thousands o members5 together 4ith its publications5 ma,e it one o the most dangerous organizations in the 0"st century. =irst5 it must be said that among satanists5 there are di erences o practice and points o vie4. These di erences have sometimes made it di icult to determine 4hat satanists actually believe. =or eDample5 some assume that it 4as satan 4ho created the Earth5 and that they must there ore obey his 4ill -the $azidis are included in this group1. Others vie4 satan only as a personi ied symbol by 4hich they can divinize their o4n desires. O course5 these di erences o philosophy do nothing to mitigate the perversity o satanist philosophy in general. Even i satanists are not united in one single organization5 their basic belie s are essentially the sameJ4hich belie s can be summarized as ollo4s: Most satanists associate satan 4ith such values as pride5 independence5 individuality5 ,no4ledge5 achievement5 thin,ing or onesel 5 and eDploring un,no4n and orbidden realms. " <e can see that the basic starting point o this perverse movement is the acceptance o satan and all his Hualities as a guide5 or model o ho4 to live in the 4orld. !n later chapters5 4e 4ill consider the basic oundation and building bloc,s o satanism and loo, brie ly at the history o this hal &religion5 hal &movement that is gaining adherents every day rom all around the 4orld. To begin 4ith5 in order to understand satanism better5 4e 4ill irst eDamine relevant verses in the :ur;an that deal 4ith satan and the mindset he represents. To begin dealing 4ith the subCect o satanists5 4e must irst realize that a great many o them are atheists and materialistsE that is5 they believe that only matter eDists. !t is vital to ,eep this preconception o theirs in mind 4hen investigating the satanists; 4ay o thin,ing. Many satanists entirely reCect the eDistence o %llah and the other4orldly reality o angels and Cinns mentioned in the :ur;an. There ore5 they do not even believe in satan as an actual being. =or them5 he is merely a symbol o hostility to4ard any ,ind o organized religion. !n spite o this5 satanists have dei ied this symbolic igure in their eagerness to embrace their perverse ideologies and rituals as a religion. !n ,eeping 4ith their absurd rules5 they 4orship satan5 per orming perverse ceremonies and rituals dictated by their clan leader. Their symbols5 vestments5 rules and rituals have brought their religion to the attention o the media.
!n every 4ord they spea,5 satanists praise satanE they as, help rom him and claim to obey his every command. They believe that their clan leader is especially close to satan and that he communicates 4ith him and receives commands rom him. (e4ly initiated satanists eel a close attachment to their leaderE they believe he can spea, to satan and there ore5 obey his commands to the letter. =or this reason5 in recent years 4e reHuently hear o satanists 4ho have committed murder5 and 4ho de end themselves by claiming that they had received a command rom satanE and many 4ho committed suicide le t a note saying that satan had ordered them to ,ill themselves. This unbalanced relationship bet4een human beings and satan is described at length in the :ur;an. %llah has 4arned people 4ith the verse5 9:hat they (all on is an arrogant satan; -Surat an&(isa;5 "")1. !n many verses o the :ur;an5 %llah clearly states that satan is the enemy o man,ind. Did 2 not ma<e a (ontra(t with you tri)e of /dam not to worship satan who truly is an outright enemy to you= (Surah %a Sin "+$ !n another verse5 Prophet %braham -pbuh1 gives his ather the ollo4ing advice: 9&ather do not worship satan. Satan was diso)edient to the /ll->er(iful. &ather 2 am afraid that a punishment from the /ll->er(iful will affli(t you and turn you into a (omrade of satan.; (Surah >aryam ??-?@$ !n these verses the dangerous idea o 4orshipping satan is made clear. !n all their 4ritings and speeches5 satanists tal, about 4orshipping satan5 to ma,e pacts and contracts 4ith him and to ul ill his 4ishes. *ut %llah has a severe 4arning or those 4ho deny 8im5 instead ta,ing satan as their deity and 4ho live according to satan;s incitements. %llah reveals the end that a4aits satan and those 4ho obey himJthe eternal pangs o 8ell: 9. . . /s for those of them who follow you 2 will fill up Hell with e8ery one of you.; (Surat al-/Araf !#$
!n the :ur;an5 %llah reveals the various characteristics o satan and his ollo4ers. <e are told that satan has been trying to cause every human being since %dam -pbuh1 to stray rom %llah;s path. The 4ord satan is derived rom a 4ord meaning Kthe ar thingL in %rabic. The %rabic roots o the 4ord also imply the meaning o Kbeing on ire 4ith hatredL and 4orthless. 9iabolis -or Iblis1 is the leader o all the satans and o the satanic activities. The 4ord Iblis means Kto be peevish despairing o any good or happiness5L Kto be desperate and miserably sorry.L0 % ter %llah created %dam -pbuh15 8e commanded the angels to prostrate themselves
be ore him. %ll the angels obeyed eDcept 9iabolis. %nd as a result o his disobedience5 he 4as driven rom %llah;s presence. The disobedience o 9iabolis is related in the :ur;an in these verses: %our Lord said to the angels 92 am going to (reate a human )eing out of (lay. :hen 2 ha8e formed him and )reathed >y Spirit into him fall down in prostration to himB; So the angels prostrated all of them together eC(ept for Dia)olis who was arrogant and was one of the un)elie8ers. He said 9Dia)olis what pre8ented you prostrating to what 2 (reated with >y own Hands= :ere you o8er(ome )y arrogan(e or are you one of the eCalted=; (Surah SDd ,!-,@$ <e are told in other verses that the basic reason or the rebellion o 9iabolis 4as his pride and arrogance5 4hich made him see a mere human being as in erior to himsel . The )2th verse o Surah SMdJ He EsatanF$ said 92 am )etter than him. %ou (reated me from fire )ut %ou (reated him from (lay;Jsho4s ho4 ungrate ul and insolent he 4as. %llah created the 4hole universe including human beings5 angels5 Cinns and satan. 8e creates 4hat 8e 4ills in the shape and orm 8e chooses. %nd every created being is bound to give pro ound respect to our Nord. To disobey and re use to serve the One <ho created us rom nothing 4ould be inane ungrate ulness. *ut 9iabolis behaved heedlessly. 8e 4as driven rom Paradise because o his disobedience. 8e vie4s human beings as his greatest enemyE he tries to divert all people rom the true path5 having obtained a period o time rom %llah in 4hich to bring trouble upon human beings. This is revealed in the ollo4ing verses o the :ur;an: E/llahF said 9-et outB %ou are a((ursedB >y (urse is upon you until the Day of 5e(<oning.; ESatanF said 9>y Lord grant me a reprie8e until the Day they are raised again.; He said 9%ou are among the reprie8ed until the Day whose time is <nown.; He said 9By %our might 2 will mislead all of them eC(ept for %our (hosen ser8ants among them.; He said 9By the truthGand 2 spea< the truthG2 will fill up Hell with you and e8ery one of them who follows you.; (Surah SDd ,,-#@$ =or thousands o years no45 satan has been 4or,ing to achieve his goal. 8e 4ill continue his stealthy activities until the 9ay o Audgment5 4hen the li e o this universe 4ill come to an end. Throughout human history5 he has approached everyone5 4ithout eDception5 to dra4 them into evil. 8e ma,es no distinction among those he misleads. 8e tries to dra4 people o every age5 status5 culture and race into his 4ay. 8e 4ants to bring everyone o di erent social groups5 rich and poor5 under his in luence. !n order to understand the scope o satan;s activities and his in luence on human beings5 4e must realize that he understands human beings very 4ellE he ,no4s our cultures5 ideologies and our points o vie4. 8e is particularly 4ell acHuainted 4ith the desires and 4ea,nesses o
humans. 8e is5 there ore5 able to plan and set snares. 8e 4ants to bring everyone 4ithout eDception5 under his in luenceJeven those 4ho live in the arthest corners o the 4orld. *ut most people are una4are o the true eDtent o this danger. They live their lives 4ithout thin,ing that satan can prompt them into doing evil and later5 lead them to 8ell. They do not realize the in luence that satan 4ields over them or 4hat ,ind o end he is dra4ing them to. One o the maCor reasons or their nonchalance is that e4 people ,no4 satan very 4ell. One o the most common errors people ma,e about him is assuming that satan is a po4er 4holly independent o %llah and that he is engaged in a struggle 4ith 8im. -Surely %llah is beyond thatO1 This is also one o the satanists; greatest errors: thin,ing that satan is a separate po4erE and so they regard his rebellion and disobedience as an eDample or them to ollo4. <hen they in turn rebel against order and virtue5 they believe that they are supporting satan in his o4n struggle. !n act5 satan is a creation o %llah and subordinate to 8im. 8is rebellion against %llah 4as predetermined in his destiny by %llah. Moreover5 satan does believe in %llah and ear 8im deeply. 8e ,no4s that the time until the 9ay o Audgment has been allotted to him5 and that in the 8erea ter he 4ill pay the penalty or his deeds. This is revealed in the :ur;an: They are li<e satan when he says to a human )eing 9Dis)elie8e ; and then when he dis)elie8es says 92 wash my hands of you. Truly 2 fear /llah the Lord of all the worlds.; (Surat al-Hashr !"$ Satan has obtained no bene it rom his disobedienceE on the contrary5 he has attained eternal loss. 8e has been eDiled rom Paradise and dra4n into the pangs o 8ell. (o4 his chie goal is to drag as many humans as he can along 4ith him to su er those same pangs. This is the essence o his struggleJagainst human beings and human goodness. %s 4e can see in the :ur;an5 even 4hile persuading people to4ard rebellion5 error and alienation rom %llah5 satan remains very 4ell a4are o the truth. %nd 4hen Audgment 9ay comes5 he 4ill abandon his ollo4ers. !t 4ill then become obvious to them that his promises 4ere all lies. Satan;s plans and the traps he set to mislead those under his spell 4ill then end in huge disappointment or them all. %llah reveals in the :ur;an: :hen the affair is de(ided satan will say 9/llah made you a promise a promise of truth and 2 made you a promise )ut )ro<e my promise. 2 had no authority o8er you eC(ept that 2 (alled you and you responded to me. Do not therefore )lame me )ut )lame yoursel8es. 2 (annot (ome to your aid nor you to mine. 2 reHe(t the way you asso(iated me with /llah )efore.; The wrongdoers will ha8e a painful punishment. (Surah 2)rahim **$ One day5 satanists5 li,e all others 4ho are deceived by satan;s promptings into adopting evil 4ays5 4ill certainly understand their error. *ut 4hat is vital is that they understand this 4hile they are still in this 4orld5 as soon as it is told to them.
Their leader5 satan5 4ill never de end them and 4ill al4ays leave them abandoned. Certainly5 to believe his lies and to thin, that his promptings are valid is nothing but inane nonsense.
Satanists are De(ei8ed )y Satan
Satan is humanity;s greatest enemy5 because his goal is to alienate people on Earth rom believing in %llah and to prevent them rom living according to the :ur;an. %llah reveals that satan sees people at all times -Surat al&%Pra 5 0)15 4hispering insidiously in their hearts -Surat an&(as5 '&315 and intimidating them -Surah %lP!mran5 ")31. 8e lies in ambush or them on %llah;s straight path -Surat al&%Pra 5 "21. *ut people 4ho do not recognize the characteristics o satan as described in the :ur;an cannot recognize the in luence he eDerts on human beings. %nd or this reason5 they listen to satan;s intimations5 ollo4 his promptings5 and believe 4hat he says. One o the main reasons 4hy people remain una4are o satan;s in luence is because he appears to them in various guises. Satan may appear as a counselor5 guiding people to4ards 4hat is good or them. %nd5 because he ,no4s human 4ea,nesses and suggestibility all too 4ell5 he can ta,e advantage o these shortcomings to orge a temporary riendship 4ith individuals. 8e does not allo4 people to understand his real intentions. Rather5 he tries to ma,e them believe that he 4ants to help and 4ant 4hat is best or them5 that he 4ants to rescue them rom a4,4ard situations and bring them to a better place. 8e intimates all these things in order to bring people over to his side. 8is chie claim5 ho4ever5 is that salvation 4ill come only 4hen they obey him. !t 4as this sly alsehood that caused %dam -pbuh1 to be ta,en in and eDpelled out rom Paradise. Satan came to him and his 4i e as a riend and s4ore that he 4as giving them good advice. The ollo4ing is revealed in the :ur;an: Then satan whispered to them dis(losing to them their pri8ate parts that had )een (on(ealed from them. He said 9%our Lord has only for)idden you this tree lest you )e(ome angels or among those who li8e for e8er.; He swore to them 92 am one of those who gi8e you good ad8i(e.; (Surat al-/Araf *+-*!$ Satan deceived %dam -pbuh1 and his 4i e and had them eDpelled rom Paradise. This is one o the main indications o ho4 sly and alse this enemy is5 4hom human beings are con ronted 4ith throughout their lives. !t 4as 9iabolis5 the greatest o the satans5 4ho suggested to %dam -pbuh1 that he 4as advising himE satans in human orm do the same to other people today. -These ,inds o satans either ta,e the orm o a human being5 or are humans directly inspired by satan. !n the :ur;an5 %llah spea,s o the eDistence o satans that are human and satans that are Cinns in the company o 9iabolis.1 One eDample o this is Pharaoh5 4ho said the ollo4ing to his people in an attempt to
prevent them rom ollo4ing the path o %llah: 9. . . 2 only show you what 2 see myself and 2 only guide you to the path of re(titude.; (Surah -hafir *I$ These suggestions are Huite similar to those made by satanists. They are human satans 4ho deceive people 4ith similar ruses in order to dra4 them into satan;s dar,ness. Satanists present satanism as a system 4herein a person can do anything he 4ants5 in 4hich he can have strength5 banish his 4orries5 avoid his responsibilities and give ree rein to his sel ish impulses. Satanists see, to mislead him5 Cust as their leader does. They appear to 4ant 4hat is good or an individual but their intimations are all elaborate lies. <hen anyone irst alls under this deception5 he immediately discovers that living as a satanist does not o er reedom but increasing dependenceE and that unlimited evil is turning him into a iend. This avenue that he too, to 4hat he thought 4as personal salvation 4ill dra4 him into a morass. Satan may use this tactic o giving people advice rom 4ithin their o4n personal circle. The suggestion o a riend or admired member o his community can have a very persuasive e ect on a person. =or eDample5 individuals 4ho came to aith5 but 4ere later led astray by satan and by their o4n riends are mentioned in the :ur;an. The riendly 4ords5 Kcome 4ith us on the right road. . . L illustrate satan;s tactics very clearly. The ollo4ing is a verse in 4hich these tactics are ully described: Say6 9/re we to (all on something )esides /llah whi(h (an neither help nor harm us and to turn on our heels after /llah has guided us li<e someone the satans ha8e lured away in the 'arth lea8ing him (onfused and stupefied despite the fa(t that he has (ompanions (alling him to guidan(e saying A4ome with usB’=; Say6 9/llah’s guidan(e that is true guidan(e. :e are (ommanded to su)mit as >uslims to the Lord of all the worlds.; (Surat al-/nAam ,!$ People must be very care ul o this enemy. %nd only one 4ho has per ectly submitted to %llah and praises 8im constantly 4ill have the necessary a4areness to eDercise this ,ind o care. Such a person 4ill immediately detect the source o satan;s intimations and remove them rom his mind. ! he does not do so5 he 4ill thin, that they are his o4n thoughts and he 4ill submit his 4ill to the satan. !n the :ur;an5 %llah reveals the state o a person 4ho obeys the intimations o satan and acts together 4ith him according to his commands: . . . /nyone who has made satan his (omrade what an e8il (omrade he isB (Surat an3isa’ J#$ *ut 4e must con orm ourselves to 4hat %llah tells us 4e must do:

The History of Satani( :orship
<hat 4e have outlined so ar illustrates the true ace o satan 4ho has ta,en so many satanists under his in luence. %t this point5 it no4 4ill be use ul to consider a brie history o ho4 satanism came to be. Satanists have long been associated 4ith the Cabbalists5 Rosicrucians and other secret5 mystical orders o the Middle %ges and later. Modern5 organized satanism irst appeared in Cali ornia in the "/2#s. !n "/225 %nton Szandor NaQey announced that he had ounded the Church o Satan. *ut actually5 at the beginning o the 0#th century5 long be ore NaQey5 %leister Cro4ley laid the oundations o 4hat 4ould become modern satanism. 7no4n as KThe *east 2225L Cro4ley became in amous or his evil spells5 and rituals 4ith liberal use o narcotics in masses and in 4hich animals 4ere sacri iced. Cro4ley;s basic philosophical principle 4as K9o 4hat thou 4ilt.L 8is philosophy 4as eDpounded in The Book of Law5 4hich5 according to Cro4ley5 satan made him 4rite. This perverse admonition dictates that5 no matter 4hat disaster o evil may ensue5 a person must ollo4 4hatever impulse comes to mind. =or eDample5 i anyone eels li,e having some eDcitement5 he shouldn;t restrain himsel . ! he eels angry at someone5 he shouldn;t hold it in. %nd5 i he thin,s about ,illing someone5 he should do it right a4ay. These abnormal ideas are bound to destroy the peace and harmony o any community. $et Cro4ley de ends them in the ollo4ing 4ords: ! 4ant blasphemy5 murder5 rape5 revolution5 anything5 bad or good5 but strong.@ O course5 Cro4ley;s idea that po4er can be attained by being evil and doing evil things is clearly 4rong. Evil brings more harm bac, on the perpetrator than it in licts on anyone else. *esides this5 any po4er attained through evil means is al4ays short&lived. Every system o ideas based on cruelty5 inCustice and the denial o conscience is bound to collapse. Cro4ley;s K9o 4hatever you 4antL philosophy 4ould create a system in 4hich people 4ould eel unrestrained rom doing every evil deed that came to mind and rom satis ying their every desire. !n other 4ords5 people should be allo4ed to rule themselves by obeying every impulse commanded by their lo4er selves. *ut such a system 4ould prove very dangerous. %llah tells us in the :ur;an that lo4er sel indeed commands man to 4rea, evil acts -Surah $usu 5 3@1. *ut at the same time5 %llah also inspires us in ho4 to avoid depravity -Surat ash&Shams5 ?1. *esides5 8e tells us that satan;s primary purpose is to lead man into evil: . . . /nyone who follows in satan’s footsteps should <now that he (ommands inde(en(y and wrongdoing. . . (Surat an-3ur *!$ %nd one o his chie 4eapons is the o4n sel o a human. *ecause one;s lo4er sel al4ays urges one to4ards evil5 the person 4ho obeys it is in a great danger. 8uman happiness and
salvation are possible only by reCecting the commands o the lo4er sel and obeying one;s conscience absolutely. The ated end o a person 4ho does evil5 thin,ing that he 4ill achieve salvation as a result5 is utter disappointment: That Day man will remem)er what he has stri8en for and the Bla7ing &ire will )e displayed for all who (an see. /s for him who o8erstepped the )ounds and preferred the life of this world the Bla7ing &ire will )e his refuge. (Surat an-3a7iAat J@-JI$ !ndeed5 satanism is a philosophy that leads its ollo4ers to divinizeJand to honor and 4orshipJtheir o4n selves and to thin, that attaining their o4n desires is their only goal in li e. !n this5 satanism is much a,in to the philosophy o humanism. Contrary to 4hat most people thin,5 humanism is not a philosophy o love5 peace and brotherhoodE but an anti&religious 4ay o thin,ing that ocuses on the concept o humanityJo simply being human5 and nothing moreJas a person;s single goal. %s its adherents openly state5 humanism is an atheistic movement. %ccording to humanism5 man and the universe 4ere not created. Man came into being spontaneously and is not responsible to any other beings. The essential thing is man himsel 5 and no entity is more important than man. %s you have gathered5 moreover5 4hat dominates humanism is the idea o sel &interest. %ccording to this5 human beings come to Earth only once. %nd the more bene its they can obtain 4hile they are here5 the better. !n that case5 the chie criteria that should determine a person;s attitudes and behavior 4ill be his o4n 4ishes and desires. 8o4ever5 these are vie4s that 4ill in lict terrible harm on humanity. =irst o all5 contrary to 4hat humanists maintain5 the universe is not the 4or, o blind chance. %lmighty and Omnipotent %llah created it. %nd5 as 8e states in one verse5 92 only (reated Hinn and man to worship >e; -Surat adh&9hariyat5 3215 4e humans are servants o our Nord <ho created us rom nothing5 and are charged 4ith eDhibiting the moral values 8e has commanded. !t must not be orgotten that the only moral values that 4ill bring people true peace and happiness are those commanded by %llah in the :ur;an. !deas supported by those 4ho turn their bac,s on religious moral values under the in luence o ideologies li,e humanism 4ill produce individuals 4ho consider only their o4n interests5 and 4ho gro4 ruthless5 disloyal5 loveless and devoid o compassion. %s you can see5 humanism holds vie4s that pose a grave threat to humanity. Satanism5 4hich employs humanism as one o its main oundations5 has developed an even more perverted and perilous perspective5 and has made violence5 rage5 blood and savagery into its undamental values.
The 4hur(h of Satan
% ter %leister Cro4ley5 %nton Szandor NaQey is the chie architect o modern&day
satanism. NaQey5 noted or his spells and strange rituals5 irst ounded an anti&Christian group called Kthe Magic Circle.L Nater5 he 4rote The Satanic Bible 4ith its amous nine satanic principles and called his group Kthe Church o Satan.L The doctrine o this organization 4as ounded on boo,s that NaQey 4rote -The Satanic Rituals, The Satanic Witch, The Devil’s Notebook and Satan S eaks1. !t is estimated that the Church o Satan still has about "#5### adherents throughout (orth %merica. !ts doctrines are Huite hereticalE as the !nc"clo e#ia of $merican Religions states: The basic themes o NaQey;s brand o satanism are sel &assertion5 antiestablishmentarianism and the grati ication o man;s physical or mental nature. Satan is a Promethean igure5 representing ... the notion that man is Hust another animal and so-(alled sin whi(h lead to physi(al or mental gratifi(ation. !t is NaQey;s opinion that Satan represents the source o these values. Rituals are conceived both as psychodramas and as magical acts that ocus psycho,inetic orce5 as in the ritual magic, tradition. Satanic philosophy is very close to the teachings o %leister Cro4ley in KThe *oo, o the Na4L. Each person is seen as living according to his o4n set o rules.' One basic eature o satanism is its opposition to religious morality and everything related to it. %nd this opposition is not limited to the realm o ideasE satanists are atheists and are hostile to all religious values. The basic purpose o NaQey;s brand o satanism is to oppose Christianity. 8e eDpresses his hostility to religion in the ollo4ing 4ords: Satanism isn;t Cust an atheistic stance but an RantiR&theistic stance. Man,ind is Huic,ly overpopulating this planetE 4e can no longer a ord the luDury o aith . . . !n order to survive5 4e must smash this 0###&year&old habit o passivity and death&adoration. There are realistic solutions that can be implemented immediately. Christianity5 as al4ays5 is the only thing standing in the 4ay o progress.3 These 4ords o NaQey;s eDpress a 4orld vie4 stri,ingly similar to that o "/th¢ury materialism. This is very instructive because it sho4s us once again the danger inherent in any attempt to remove religion rom society and ho4 such attempts can lead to disaster. Satanism is the per ect eDample o ho4 every perversity can lourish 4here religion is absent. <hen they do not ear %llah5 people may even devolve into iends 4ho ta,e delight in bloodshed. ! many people5 especially youth5 are dra4n into the scourge o satanism5 it is due directly to those ideologies envisaging a li e ree o religion. There ore5 it 4ill be use ul to eDamine the connections bet4een satanism and ideologies 4hose basic principles include the legitimacy o living a li e that;s ree and unrestrained5 the reCection o la4 and order5 and opposition to every moral value.
Satanism6 /n /theist and >aterialist 5eligion
Satanism arises rom a spiritual void. The ideas developed in the "/th centuryJthat this 4orld is no more than an aggregation o material elementsJdrove people into that spiritual emptiness. 6ntil then5 religious values 4ere inseparable rom society. *ut a ter4ards5 social values changed5 and religious morality came to be regarded as unimportant. !ndeed5 religious
values 4ere deliberately eDcluded rom social li e. Entailed in this 4ay o thin,ing that developed in the "/th century 4as an opposition to religious morality and those 4ho practiced it5 and a belie in the possibility o a morality 4ithout the ear o %llah. *ut the removal o religious morality rom society has produced a great vacancy5 and eDperience has sho4n the impossibility o morality 4ithout the ear o %llah. =or those living in this void5 good and evil have lost their value and meaning5 resulting in a conceptual chaos. The ,ind o people no4 inding acceptance in society have become those 4ho live the Kgood li eL o prosperity5 4ho earn more and spend more and5 i necessary5 use and eDploit others to get 4hat they 4ant. Their sel &interest is paramount5 and they regard sel & sacri ice as naivetS. People are 4illing to help others only a ter they have loo,ed a ter themselves. %s a result5 the essential virtues and basic needs o the human spiritJlove5 mercy5 compassion5 riendship5 loyalty and aith ulnessJare all orgotten5 and evil has ta,en the place o goodness. *ut this is an arti icial state o a airs5 managed by the removal o spiritual values and specially planned by elements opposed to religious morality. Satanism is one o the most dangerous movements that has arisen rom this process o social change. !t is a product o materialist and atheist currents o thought o that time5 and one o the 4orst eDamples o ho4 these philosophies have normalized violence and perversity. (otice that the values espoused by these ideologies and those o satanism are roughly the same. Materialism and atheism both assert that everything is made up o elements o this 4orldE and that5 4hen li e ends5 so does everything else. There ore5 people are not responsible or anything that they may do. %nd5 i they have no responsibility5 there is nothing to stop them rom committing evil. *ut anyone 4ho maintains this is deceiving himsel . The 4hole universe5 including human beings5 is the 4or, o the supreme po4er o a CreatorJ%llahE and everyone is responsible to 8im. 8uman eDistence in this 4orld is limited by time. <hen one;s time is ul illed5 that individual 4ill die. % ter physical death5 every individual 4ill enter the Presence o our Nord to give an account or every moment o his li e. =or those 4ho live out their lives 4ithout responsibility5 thin,ing they are liable to no accounting5 4ill be 4ithout recourse on that day. !n order to better understand the in luence o materialism and atheism on satanism5 4e need only eDamine its publications. =or eDample5 4hen 4e loo, at 4hat the Church o Satan has published5 4e see that all its authors are atheists. %nd satanists are materialists5 4ho believe only in the eDistence o matter. %nd because satanists deny the eDistence o %llah5 they also deny the eDistence o supernatural beings such as angels. There ore5 they actually deny the eDistence o satanO 9espite their designation o themselves as satan 4orshippers5 they do not believe in a literal being called satan. =or them5 satan is merely a symbol o the opposition to religion. These ideas are eDpressed in a document entitled K% 9escription o SatanismL published by the Church o Satan: Satanism is an atheist religion li,e *uddhism. (othing to ans4er to other than the
conseHuences o our actions. Satanists do not )elie8e in the eCisten(e of -od /ngels Hea8en or hell the de8il Satan '8il Spirits -ood spirits Tooth fairies or demons. Materialism and realism are the order o the Satanist. Real li e and real emotions come irst. Satanism is atheisti(. Satanism (an )e (onsidered to )e /utodeistsGwe worship oursel8es. Satanism can be considered to be opposition o religions. Satanism is an un&religion.2 %gain5 a publication o the Church o Satan entitled KSatanism: The =eared Religion5L reveals 4hat satanists really believe: Satanists do not believe in the supernatural5 in neither Fod nor the 9evil. To the Satanist5 he is his o4n Fod. Satan is a sym)ol of >an li8ing as his prideful (arnal nature di(tates . . . . Satan is not a conscious entity to be 4orshipped5 rather a reservoir o po4er inside each human to be tapped at 4ill.) Similarly5 an article on satanism in The Washington %ost reports that NaQey;s group does not believe in satan or 4orship him. %ccording to NaQey5 the de8il is a sym)ol of man’s (arnal natureGhis lust greed 8engean(e )ut most of all his ego .? $ou 4ill notice that satanism;s basic tenet is that human nature is savage and pitiless. 8o4ever5 pitilessness5 violence5 savagery5 greed5 sel ishness and vengeance are not human HualitiesE they belong to the lo4er sel . %nd5 as pointed out earlier5 every individual has the ability to overcome them by his 4ill and conscience. The chie reason 4hy satanists are so insistent in their claims about human nature is that they;ve been greatly in luenced by 9ar4in;s theory o evolution. This dogma goes under the guise o a scienti ic theory and orms the ideological basis o satanism5 as it has in the case o many other ideas that have been disastrous to humanity. The 4ords KMan living as his pride ul5 carnal nature dictates5L eDpresses in a sense the essence o satanism. %ccording to the perverse vie4s o satanists5 human evolution has produced a species o animal that must survive as other animals do. !n an article entitled KSatan Really <ants $ou5L Ric, 8all5 an advocate o satanism5 describes satanist materialism and its relation 4ith 9ar4inism: The materialism o Satanic philosophy dismisses any so&called spiritual li e that;s divorced rom5 or Khigher than5L physical eDistence . . . NaQey 4as an elitist and Social 9ar4inist. / %nother important act satanists ail to comprehend is that human nature is not pride ul or carnal. %llah has breathed 8is o4n spirit into human beings and created them in the best possible 4ay. The human spirit is delicate5 created to delight in mercy5 compassion5 love5 subtlety5 humanity and riendship. The urge that directs people to evil and pitilessness is the voice o the lo4er sel 5 dispatched by satan. %nd by listening to that sel 5 a person brings terrible conseHuences on himsel .
Satanism and Darwin’s Theory of '8olution
%mong the salient data that an investigator o satanism 4ill discover concerns its relation to Social 9ar4inism. The element that shapes satanist aspirations 4ith regard to social li e and that orms the basis o their 4orldvie4 is 9ar4inism. Many satanists openly admit this act. The act that satanists advocate 9ar4inism is stressed in many publications. 7no4n or his investigations o satanism5 9r. Roald E. 7ristiansen o Pomor 6niversity in Russia describes satanism as ollo4s: Satanism is )est (on(ei8ed as a radi(al form of atheisti( so(ial Darwinism 4hich vie4s Christianity as its primary enemy . . . . The point is not to eDperience some ,ind o super&normal unity 4ith some ,ind o personal orce o evil5 )ut to de8elop the human a)ilities to use their natural power to su(h an eCtent that it transforms one’s life and ena)les one to su((eed in the personal struggle for sur8i8al.

because o the savage struggle or survival among animals in nature.

Those 4ho maintain their connections 4ith 9ar4inism out o ideological concerns are misled. 9ar4inism is gone5 never to return5 buried in the annals o history. %llah has created the universe and all the creatures in it. (othing has come to be by chance. <hen someone sees the plenti ul evidence o creation in so many places o the universe5 it is sheer ignorance to claim that all this per ect balance and per ection are the result o chance. Only satanists and other mentally disturbed individuals could claim such a belie . %s a result o their association 4ith 9ar4inism5 satanists do not accept that all people are eHuals. They thin, that over time5 some races and individuals have evolved more highly than others5 4ho have not advanced beyond the lo4er steps on the evolutionary chart. %s 4e shall see5 this accounts or the natural association bet4een satanism and =ascism. *ut unli,e =ascism5 satanism asserts not only di erences bet4een societies and races5 but also that 4ithin any one society5 some members are superior to others. Predictably5 the superior ones are those 4ho understand the po4er o evil and believe in it Jand this superiority gives them the right to treat others as they li,e. %ll this sho4s that satanism in an atheist belie system centered on the evolutionary theory5 4hich theory asserts that human beings are a species o animal. !t;s on this basis that
satanists develop their modes o thin,ing and acting. <hen you eDamine boo,s 4ritten by evolutionist biologists5 philosophers and intellectuals5 you can see that they repeat almost 4ord or 4ord the satanist principles cited above. =or eDample5 4e can see such similar satanist eDpressions in the boo,s o 9ar4inists and atheists such as Richard 9a4,ins5 Stephen A.

They all believe that human beings are a higher species o animal and that li e is a struggle. %nd 4hen they state that in this struggle5 only the strong 4ill survive5 they describe human nature in the same 4ay that satanists do. =or eDample5 in an article entitled KMeet My Cousin5 the Chimpanzee5L noted evolutionist Richard 9a4,ins presents the nonsensical vie4 that human ancestors 4ere apes: <e admit that 4e are li,e apes5 but 4e seldom realize that 4e are apes.

The Satanist 2deal of a So(ial Darwinist So(iety
Satanists have based their philosophy on the principle o the evolutionary theory that a human being is a species o animalE accordingly5 they desire to establish a 4orld in 4hich human beings live and behave li,e animals. =or satanists5 the ideal society 4ould be totally ruled by 9ar4inist values5 and its basic principle 4ould be that the po4er ul crush the 4ea,. %ccording to satanism;s distorted belie s5 a human being must develop himsel and evolve in order to survive and be success ul in this Kstruggle or li e.L One 4ho cannot do this is abandoned and le t behind to die.

Satanism and &as(ism
%s already pointed out5 the a inity that satanists elt or 9ar4inism led naturally to an alliance bet4een satanism and =ascism. <e ,no4 that =ascism5 li,e satanism5 rests on the basic philosophy o Social 9ar4inism. %ccording to =ascism5 the 4orld is an arena o con lict bet4een various races in the struggle or survival. =or a =ascist5 bloodshed5 4ars and in licting pain on others is a sacred duty as 4ell as a pleasure. -=or a detailed discussion o this lin,5 see 8arun $ahya;s 'ascism( The Bloo#" I#eolog" of Darwinism .1 %nother point in common bet4een satanism and 9ar4inism is their admiration or the anti&religious "/th¢ury philosopher5 =riedrich (ietzsche5 4ho published many hate ul 4ritings against true religions. 8e called himsel the %ntichrist and died insane. 8is 4ritings attac,ed moral virtues such as love5 compassion and mercy5 saying instead that harsh orces should control the 4orld and only those 4ith po4er should rule.

One o the best eDamples o the satanist&=ascist aesthetic idea can be seen in the concerts and videos o the heavy metal and blac, metal bands that have adopted this philosophy. =or eDample5 one o the best ,no4n satanist&=ascist bands is the *ritish band Cradle o =ilth5 4hose repertoire is built on ugliness and dar,ness.

this Kde&programming5L young people must be spiritually sensitized. %nyone 4ho ,no4s that %llah created the universe rom nothing 4ill be eHually a4are o his responsibilities to 8im and that he 4ill arise a ter death to give an account o every moment he spent on Earth. 7no4ing this5 he cannot possibly misguided into doing anything that 4ould harm himsel or those around him.
6p to this point5 4e have seen that satanism reCects every ,ind o religious and moral value and is completely hostile to everything reminiscent o 9ivinely inspired religions. !t aims to oppose every good Huality elucidated by religious morality and to do the eDact opposite. Satanism perversely teaches that to do these things is to serve satan. Satanists are totally opposed to the love5 compassion5 righteousness and honesty that are the basis o 9ivinely revealed religions such as !slam5 Christianity and AudaismE and they reCect the strictures o these religions that orbid lying5 stealing5 murder and doing harm to others. Satanism regards it as a sign o superiority to commit every act that revealed religions call a sinE or this reason5 it urges its members to commit these same acts. %ccording to this perverse doctrine5 there is no limit to evil. People should give ree rein to their every eeling o resentment5 anger and revenge. !n the :ur;an5 the situation o those 4ho ollo4 satan is described in these 4ords: . . . Satan (aught up with him.

Niving creatures are capable o eDtraordinary sel &sacri ice to protect their young or de end their communities. *ut satanists and 9ar4inists ignore this or the most part. Satanists are totally 4rong in representing con lict as inevitable. 8uman beings and communities do not survive by con lict5 but through cooperation and acting together. Con lict and violence typically mean the end o a society. '. Satanism5 li,e Social 9ar4inism5 has no sense o respect or compassion or the 4ea,5 needy or the elderly. !t regards them as parasites to be eliminated. !t vie4s love5 compassion5

The act that these ine Hualities are suggestive o religious morality ma,es satanists very uncom ortable. =or satanists5 in order to survive and thrive5 human beings must resort to all ,inds o evil. Satanism regards all these evil acts as legitimate. The so&called Custi ication is the 9ar4inist vie4 that li e is a savage arena 4here only the strong survive. *ut as 4e considered earlier5 this is 4rong. Satanism;s cruel5 aggressive character comes rom this understanding. There ore5 satanism5 being ounded on individualism5 does not consider the harm it does to society and to the good o others. They say5 K9o something i it;s to your advantageE i it is to someone else;s advantage5 don;t 4aste your time.L The result o this attitude is a society composed o sel ish5 unCust5 inhumane5 cruel and merciless individuals.

Satanism Leads 0eople to a Terri)le 'nd
The 4ord KsatanismL evo,es in peoples; minds images o satanic ceremonies5 rituals o animal sacri ice5 blac, magic5 drin,ing blood and other deviant acts di icult or most people to imagine. Such ceremonies are inseparable rom satanism. One may group satanic rituals and arrange them under di erent headings5 partly because satanist groups in di erent countries have their o4n understanding o these ceremonies. One can see these rituals depicted clearly in satanist boo,s5 magazines5 !nternet sites and in the song lyrics o satanist bands. (e4 satanists are introduced to these rituals slo4ly. They are advised to practice them even on their o4n in order to strengthen their relationship 4ith satan.

Hail SatanB; . . . This is a simple 4ay o aligning yoursel 4ith 4hat Satan means to us . . . @/ The special importance given to shedding blood during satanic rituals is a symbolic eDpression o satan;s plan or human beings. Satan hates the human race and 4ill do anything in
his po4er to bring misery upon it. There ore5 he has made it his purpose to shed blood in the 4orld. Satanists obey his command to do this5 and shedding blood is practiced as an open ritual. The main implements in satanic rituals are aDes5 s4ords and robes. ColorsJred5 the color o blood5 and blac,5 symbolizing the dar, po4ersJare indispensable elements o the rituals. The most horri ying rituals are those in 4hich animalsJand at a more advanced level5 human beings Jare ,illed and dedicated to satan. !ndeed5 one o the most horri ying aspects o satanism is that the rituals do not end only the lives o animals5 but o human beings as 4ell. <e are used to hearing about cats5 and goats being ,illed in satanist ritualsE their blood is later put into a chalice and drun,. Satanists believe that the energy that comes rom this blood increases the strength o the priest 4ho per orms the ritual and those 4ho are in attendance. <hen a human is to be ,illed5 the decision o 4ho is to be slaughtered is very simple: anyone 4ho has irritated a satanist by doing something he didn;t li,e is an ideal choice or these rituals. '# !n a statement about the necessity o murder and slaughter to establish a relationship 4ith satan5 one satanist clearly sho4s 4hat ,ind o morality satanism dra4s people into: =or our adherence to Satan5 ! ,illed goats or ' to 3 times . . . %bout ,illing a man5 irst o all the person 4ho 4ill be ,illed should 4ant to be immolated or Satan. 2 <ill someone only under these (ir(umstan(es.'" There are ,no4n instances in these rituals o young girls being raped and individuals being murdered to provide enough blood or the rituals. Sometimes the savagery o satanism can reach an advanced stage that a person may ,ill himsel . The spiritual void and imbalance that satanism creates in human beings is the reason 4hy anyone should be prepared to end his li e or the sa,e o this inane doctrine. !n Cust the same 4ay as they are very 4rong about li e5 satanists; vie4 about death and 4hat happens a ter4ards are eHually deviant. =or some satanists5 suicide is a 4ay o attaining the li e in 8ell that they do long or in this 4orldE or others5 it is a public display to prove their courage and rebelliousness. Contrary to 4hat satanists thin,5 ho4ever5 death is no salvation at all or those 4ho deny %llah. !t is much more di icult and distressing and it is the beginning o an eternal li e. %lso5 those 4ho see suicide as a ,ind o rebellion are Huite 4rong. %llah has clearly orbidden a person rom ta,ing his o4n li e. %ll these things are eDamples o the terrible end that satan 4ants to lead people to. Those 4ho have gotten themselves tangled up in satanism have lost every human Huality and become li,e savage5 aggressive animals. 6na4are that all the transitory allurements o the 4orld and satan;s alse promises are part o the 4orldly test5 they have received the re4ard or their erroneous suppositions. !n Surah Saba;5 %llah eDplains this situation to us: Dia)olis was (orre(t in his assessment of them and they followed him eC(ept for a group of the )elie8ers.

4on(lusion6 Satan’s :iles are &ee)le
The in ormation eDamined in this boo, has sho4n the dangerous and horri ying 4orldvie4 o satanism and the ideas it is based on. One obvious conclusion to be made in the light o this in ormation is that satanism gro4s and develops in any environment 4here spiritual values are disregarded5 4here religious morality is ignored5 and 4here there is no ear o %llah or proper respect or 8im. %nother important conclusion is that satanism cannot be stopped by Cudicial means alone. This could serve to strengthen it as a rebellious illegal movement. There ore5 the opposition to be launched against satanism may be summarized under the ollo4ing basics: ". This opposition must be carried on most importantly in the realm o ideas. %n ideology de eated in this realm is bound to disappear5 no matter ho4 many adherents it has5 or ho4 4idespread it may be. =or this reason5 it is very important to uncover the illogicality5 perversity and errors in the ideas satanism espouses. 9emonstrating that satanism is made up o glittery slogans5 alse propaganda and empty 4ords 4ill prevent its gaining ne4 adherents and permit its present members to understand the great deception they are caught up in. 0. !n this struggle o ideas5 the most important step must be to destroy the ideological oundations that support satanism. Obviously5 no ideology can survive i its oundations are destroyed and it has nothing to hold on to. Throughout this boo,5 4e have seen that one o the most important elements that ,eep satanism alive is materialismE and another is 9ar4inism. *ut 9ar4inism is an ideology that has collapsed scienti icallyE its errors have been proven many times. 8o4ever5 the theory is still de ended in some Huarters as being scienti ic. %nd to the eDtent that it is not sho4n to be a huge deception5 it allo4s satanism and other deviant movements to continue unchec,ed. !n this situation5 a person 4ho lac,s the opportunity to investigate the matter or acts on the basis o piecemeal in ormation may assume that 9ar4inism is still valid and be caught in the error that satanism has a legitimate point o departure. The only 4ay to prevent this error is to demonstrate to people that 9ar4inism is a ban,rupt ideology. @. There is something else that must be done in conCunction 4ith the above: People must be helped out o the spiritual void into 4hich they have allen. % spiritually a4are individual 4ho ,no4s the purpose o li e 4ill never all under the in luence o any perverse movement. There ore5 it is necessary to tell young people5 especially5 about the proo s or the eDistence and unity o %llahE to teach them that they are responsible to %llah or everything they doE and to 4arn them about 4hat they may encounter in the 8erea ter. '. !n doing all this5 it is very important to enlist the support o the mass mediaJ ne4spapers5 magazines and televisionJand to organize the educational system accordingly. <hen the press reports this absurd movement to the public5 it must be care ul not to spread its propagandaE it must sensitize the public by revealing all the perversions o satanism. %lso5 the educational system must 4arn students about this problem and train succeeding generations that are a4are and that 4ill not all under the in luence o such perversions. % young person 4ho is brought up to ,no4 that li e is not the product o blind chance5 to recognize the po4er and might
o %llah and to learn the moral teachings o the :ur;an5 4ill not be seduced into such a morass. Remember that some all into the net o this perverse movement out o curiosity. They see it as an adventure or because they are loo,ing or some novelty. <hatever their motives5 these people obviously do not ,no4 4hat they are doing. They are in a spiritual void. !n this situation5 everyoneJanyone o aith5 especiallyJhas an important responsibility to carry out in the struggle o ideas 4ith satanism. !n one verse o the :ur;an5 %llah reveals that: Satan is your enemy so treat him as an enemy. He summons his party so they will )e among the people of the Searing Bla7e. (Surah &atir "$ =irst o all5 people o aith must announce this truth to everyone and 4arn them against this situation. They must ma,e every e ort so that people can learn religious morality and spread the moral teachings o the :ur;an5 or5 4ith %llah;s permission5 the light o the :ur;an 4ill destroy all perverse movements5 satanism included5 and lead people into the good and beauti ul li e they al4ays long or.
The De(eption of '8olution
9ar4inism5 in other 4ords the theory o evolution5 4as put or4ard 4ith the aim o denying the act o creation5 but is in truth nothing but ailed5 unscienti ic nonsense. This theory5 4hich claims that li e emerged by chance rom inanimate matter5 4as invalidated by the scienti ic evidence o miraculous order in the universe and in living things. !n this 4ay5 science con irmed the act that %llah created the universe and the living things in it. The propaganda carried out today in order to ,eep the theory o evolution alive is based solely on the distortion o the scienti ic acts5 biased interpretation5 and lies and alsehoods disguised as science. $et this propaganda cannot conceal the truth. The act that the theory o evolution is the greatest deception in the history o science has been eDpressed more and more in the scienti ic 4orld over the last 0#&@# years. Research carried out a ter the "/?#s in particular has revealed that the claims o 9ar4inism are totally un ounded5 something that has been stated by a large number o scientists. !n the 6nited States in particular5 many scientists rom such di erent ields as biology5 biochemistry and paleontology recognize the invalidity o 9ar4inism and employ the act o creation to account or the origin o li e. <e have eDamined the collapse o the theory o evolution and the proo s o creation in great scienti ic detail in many o our 4or,s5 and are still continuing to do so. Fiven the enormous importance o this subCect5 it 4ill be o great bene it to summarize it here.
The S(ientifi( 4ollapse of Darwinism
%lthough this doctrine goes bac, as ar as ancient Freece5 the theory o evolution 4as advanced eDtensively in the nineteenth century. The most important development that made it the top topic o the 4orld o science 4as Charles 9ar4in>s The *rigin of S ecies5 published in "?3/. !n this boo,5 he denied that %llah created di erent living species on Earth separately5 or he claimed that all living beings had a common ancestor and had diversi ied over time through small changes. 9ar4in>s theory 4as not based on any concrete scienti ic indingE as he also accepted5 it 4as Cust an Bassumption.B Moreover5 as 9ar4in con essed in the long chapter o his boo, titled B9i iculties on Theory5B the theory ailed in the ace o many critical Huestions. 9ar4in invested all o his hopes in ne4 scienti ic discoveries5 4hich he eDpected to solve these di iculties. 8o4ever5 contrary to his eDpectations5 scienti ic indings eDpanded the dimensions o these di iculties. The de eat o 9ar4inism in the ace o science can be revie4ed under three basic topics: "1 The theory cannot eDplain ho4 li e originated on Earth. 01 (o scienti ic inding sho4s that the Bevolutionary mechanismsB proposed by the theory have any evolutionary po4er at all. @1 The ossil record proves the eDact opposite o 4hat the theory suggests. !n this section5 4e 4ill eDamine these three basic points in general outlines:
The &irst 2nsurmounta)le Step6 The .rigin of Life
The theory o evolution posits that all living species evolved rom a single living cell that emerged on the primitive Earth @.? billion years ago. 8o4 a single cell could generate millions o compleD living species and5 i such an evolution really occurred5 4hy traces o it cannot be observed in the ossil record are some o the Huestions that the theory cannot ans4er. 8o4ever5 irst and oremost5 4e need to as,: 8o4 did this B irst cellB originateI Since the theory o evolution denies creation and any ,ind o supernatural intervention5 it maintains that the B irst cellB originated coincidentally 4ithin the la4s o nature5 4ithout any design5 plan or arrangement. %ccording to the theory5 inanimate matter must have produced a living cell as a result o coincidences. Such a claim5 ho4ever5 is inconsistent 4ith the most unassailable rules o biology.
NLife 4omes &rom LifeN
!n his boo,5 9ar4in never re erred to the origin o li e. The primitive understanding o science in his time rested on the assumption that living beings had a very simple structure. Since medieval times5 spontaneous generation5 4hich asserts that non&living materials came together to orm living organisms5 had been 4idely accepted. !t 4as commonly believed that insects came into being rom ood le tovers5 and mice rom 4heat. !nteresting eDperiments 4ere conducted to prove this theory. Some 4heat 4as placed on a dirty piece o cloth5 and it 4as believed that mice 4ould originate rom it a ter a 4hile. Similarly5 maggots developing in rotting meat 4as assumed to be evidence o spontaneous generation. 8o4ever5 it 4as later understood that 4orms did not appear on meat spontaneously5 but 4ere carried there by lies in the orm o larvae5 invisible to the na,ed eye. Even 4hen 9ar4in 4rote The *rigin of S ecies5 the belie that bacteria could come into eDistence rom non&living matter 4as 4idely accepted in the 4orld o science. 8o4ever5 ive years a ter the publication o 9ar4in>s boo,5 Nouis Pasteur announced his results a ter long studies and eDperiments5 that disproved spontaneous generation5 a cornerstone o 9ar4in>s theory. !n his triumphal lecture at the Sorbonne in "?2'5 Pasteur said: B(ever 4ill the doctrine o spontaneous generation recover rom the mortal blo4 struc, by this simple eDperiment.B4& =or a long time5 advocates o the theory o evolution resisted these indings. 8o4ever5 as the development o science unraveled the compleD structure o the cell o a living being5 the idea that li e could come into being coincidentally aced an even greater impasse.
2n(on(lusi8e 'fforts of the Twentieth 4entury
The irst evolutionist 4ho too, up the subCect o the origin o li e in the t4entieth century 4as the reno4ned Russian biologist %leDander Oparin. <ith various theses he advanced in the "/@#s5 he tried to prove that a living cell could originate by coincidence. These studies5 ho4ever5
4ere doomed to ailure5 and Oparin had to ma,e the ollo4ing con ession: 6n ortunately5 ho4ever5 the problem o the origin o the cell is perhaps the most obscure point in the 4hole study o the evolution o organisms.'@ Evolutionist ollo4ers o Oparin tried to carry out eDperiments to solve this problem. The best ,no4n eDperiment 4as carried out by the %merican chemist Stanley Miller in "/3@. Combining the gases he alleged to have eDisted in the primordial Earth>s atmosphere in an eDperiment set&up5 and adding energy to the miDture5 Miller synthesized several organic molecules -amino acids1 present in the structure o proteins. *arely a e4 years had passed be ore it 4as revealed that this eDperiment5 4hich 4as then presented as an important step in the name o evolution5 4as invalid5 or the atmosphere used in the eDperiment 4as very di erent rom the real Earth conditions.'' % ter a long silence5 Miller con essed that the atmosphere medium he used 4as unrealistic.44 %ll the evolutionists> e orts throughout the t4entieth century to eDplain the origin o li e ended in ailure. The geochemist Ae rey *ada5 rom the San 9iego Scripps !nstitute accepts this act in an article published in !arth magazine in "//?: Today as 4e leave the t4entieth century5 4e still ace the biggest unsolved problem that 4e had 4hen 4e entered the t4entieth century: 8o4 did li e originate on EarthI'2
The 4ompleC Stru(ture of Life
The primary reason 4hy the theory o evolution ended up in such a great impasse regarding the origin o li e is that even those living organisms deemed to be the simplest have incredibly compleD structures. The cell o a living thing is more compleD than all o our man& made technological products. Today5 even in the most developed laboratories o the 4orld5 a living cell cannot be produced by bringing organic chemicals together. The conditions reHuired or the ormation o a cell are too great in Huantity to be eDplained a4ay by coincidences. The probability o proteins5 the building bloc,s o a cell5 being synthesized coincidentally5 is " in "#/3# or an average protein made up o 3## amino acids. !n mathematics5 a probability smaller than " over "# 3# is considered to be impossible in practical terms. The 9(% molecule5 4hich is located in the nucleus o a cell and 4hich stores genetic in ormation5 is an incredible databan,. ! the in ormation coded in 9(% 4ere 4ritten do4n5 it 4ould ma,e a giant library consisting o an estimated /## volumes o encyclopedias consisting o 3## pages each. % very interesting dilemma emerges at this point: 9(% can replicate itsel only 4ith the help o some specialized proteins -enzymes1. 8o4ever5 the synthesis o these enzymes can be realized only by the in ormation coded in 9(%. %s they both depend on each other5 they have to eDist at the same time or replication. This brings the scenario that li e originated by itsel to a deadloc,. Pro . Neslie Orgel5 an evolutionist o repute rom the 6niversity o San 9iego5 Cali ornia5 con esses this act in the September "//' issue o the Scientific $merican magazine:
!t is eDtremely improbable that proteins and nucleic acids5 both o 4hich are structurally compleD5 arose spontaneously in the same place at the same time. $et it also seems impossible to have one 4ithout the other. %nd so5 at irst glance5 one might have to conclude that li e could never5 in act5 have originated by chemical means.') (o doubt5 i it is impossible or li e to have originated rom natural causes5 then it has to be accepted that li e 4as BcreatedB in a supernatural 4ay. This act eDplicitly invalidates the theory o evolution5 4hose main purpose is to deny creation.
2maginary >e(hanism of '8olution
The second important point that negates 9ar4in>s theory is that both concepts put or4ard by the theory as Bevolutionary mechanismsB 4ere understood to have5 in reality5 no evolutionary po4er. 9ar4in based his evolution allegation entirely on the mechanism o Bnatural selection.B The importance he placed on this mechanism 4as evident in the name o his boo,: The *rigin of S ecies, B" &eans of Natural Selection+ (atural selection holds that those living things that are stronger and more suited to the natural conditions o their habitats 4ill survive in the struggle or li e. =or eDample5 in a deer herd under the threat o attac, by 4ild animals5 those that can run aster 4ill survive. There ore5 the deer herd 4ill be comprised o aster and stronger individuals. 8o4ever5 unHuestionably5 this mechanism 4ill not cause deer to evolve and trans orm themselves into another living species5 or instance5 horses. There ore5 the mechanism o natural selection has no evolutionary po4er. 9ar4in 4as also a4are o this act and had to state this in his boo, The *rigin of S ecies( (atural selection can do nothing until avourable individual di erences or variations '? occur.
So5 ho4 could these B avorable variationsB occurI 9ar4in tried to ans4er this Huestion rom the standpoint o the primitive understanding o science at that time. %ccording to the =rench biologist Chevalier de Namarc, -")''&"?0/15 4ho lived be ore 9ar4in5 living creatures passed on the traits they acHuired during their li etime to the neDt generation. 8e asserted that these traits5 4hich accumulated rom one generation to another5 caused ne4 species to be ormed. =or instance5 he claimed that gira es evolved rom antelopesE as they struggled to eat the leaves o high trees5 their nec,s 4ere eDtended rom generation to generation. 9ar4in also gave similar eDamples. !n his boo, The *rigin of S ecies5 or instance5 he said that some bears going into 4ater to ind ood trans ormed themselves into 4hales over time.'/ 8o4ever5 the la4s o inheritance discovered by Fregor Mendel -"?00&?'1 and veri ied by the science o genetics5 4hich lourished in the t4entieth century5 utterly demolished the legend that acHuired traits 4ere passed on to subseHuent generations. Thus5 natural selection ell out o
avor as an evolutionary mechanism.
3eo-Darwinism and >utations
!n order to ind a solution5 9ar4inists advanced the BModern Synthetic Theory5B or as it is more commonly ,no4n5 (eo&9ar4inism5 at the end o the "/@#s. (eo&9ar4inism added mutations5 4hich are distortions ormed in the genes o living beings due to such eDternal actors as radiation or replication errors5 as the Bcause o avorable variationsB in addition to natural mutation. Today5 the model that stands or evolution in the 4orld is (eo&9ar4inism. The theory maintains that millions o living beings ormed as a result o a process 4hereby numerous compleD organs o these organisms -e.g.5 ears5 eyes5 lungs5 and 4ings1 under4ent Bmutations5B that is5 genetic disorders. $et5 there is an outright scienti ic act that totally undermines this theory: Mutations do not cause living beings to developE on the contrary5 they are al4ays harm ul. The reason or this is very simple: 9(% has a very compleD structure5 and random e ects can only harm it. The %merican geneticist *. F. Ranganathan eDplains this as ollo4s: =irst5 genuine mutations are very rare in nature. Secondly5 most mutations are harm ul since they are random5 rather than orderly changes in the structure o genesE any random change in a highly ordered system 4ill be or the 4orse5 not or the better. =or eDample5 i an earthHua,e 4ere to sha,e a highly ordered structure such as a building5 there 4ould be a random change in the rame4or, o the building 4hich5 in all probability5 4ould not be an improvement.3# (ot surprisingly5 no mutation eDample5 4hich is use ul5 that is5 4hich is observed to develop the genetic code5 has been observed so ar. %ll mutations have proved to be harm ul. !t 4as understood that mutation5 4hich is presented as an Bevolutionary mechanism5B is actually a genetic occurrence that harms living things5 and leaves them disabled. -The most common e ect o mutation on human beings is cancer.1 O course5 a destructive mechanism cannot be an Bevolutionary mechanism.B (atural selection5 on the other hand5 Bcan do nothing by itsel 5B as 9ar4in also accepted. This act sho4s us that there is no Bevolutionary mechanismB in nature. Since no evolutionary mechanism eDists5 no such any imaginary process called BevolutionB could have ta,en place.
The &ossil 5e(ord6 3o Sign of 2ntermediate &orms
The clearest evidence that the scenario suggested by the theory o evolution did not ta,e place is the ossil record. %ccording to this theory5 every living species has sprung rom a predecessor. % previously eDisting species turned into something else over time and all species have come into being in this 4ay. !n other 4ords5 this trans ormation proceeds gradually over millions o years. 8ad this been the case5 numerous intermediary species should have eDisted and lived 4ithin this long trans ormation period.
=or instance5 some hal & ish+hal &reptiles should have lived in the past 4hich had acHuired some reptilian traits in addition to the ish traits they already had. Or there should have eDisted some reptile&birds5 4hich acHuired some bird traits in addition to the reptilian traits they already had. Since these 4ould be in a transitional phase5 they should be disabled5 de ective5 crippled living beings. Evolutionists re er to these imaginary creatures5 4hich they believe to have lived in the past5 as Btransitional orms.B ! such animals ever really eDisted5 there should be millions and even billions o them in number and variety. More importantly5 the remains o these strange creatures should be present in the ossil record. !n The *rigin of S ecies5 9ar4in eDplained: ! my theory be true5 numberless intermediate varieties5 lin,ing most closely all o the species o the same group together must assuredly have eDisted... ConseHuently5 evidence o their ormer eDistence could be ound only amongst ossil remains.3"
DarwinOs Hopes Shattered
8o4ever5 although evolutionists have been ma,ing strenuous e orts to ind ossils since the middle o the nineteenth century all over the 4orld5 no transitional orms have yet been uncovered. %ll o the ossils5 contrary to the evolutionists> eDpectations5 sho4 that li e appeared on Earth all o a sudden and ully& ormed. One amous *ritish paleontologist5 9ere, Q. %ger5 admits this act5 even though he is an evolutionist: The point emerges that i 4e eDamine the ossil record in detail5 4hether at the level o orders or o species5 4e ind G over and over again G not gradual evolution5 but the sudden eDplosion o one group at the eDpense o another.30 This means that in the ossil record5 all living species suddenly emerge as ully ormed5 4ithout any intermediate orms in bet4een. This is Cust the opposite o 9ar4in>s assumptions. %lso5 this is very strong evidence that all living things are created. The only eDplanation o a living species emerging suddenly and complete in every detail 4ithout any evolutionary ancestor is that it 4as created. This act is admitted also by the 4idely ,no4n evolutionist biologist 9ouglas =utuyma: Creation and evolution5 bet4een them5 eDhaust the possible eDplanations or the origin o living things. Organisms either appeared on the earth ully developed or they did not. ! they did not5 they must have developed rom pre&eDisting species by some process o modi ication. ! they did appear in a ully developed state5 they must indeed have been created by some omnipotent intelligence.3@ =ossils sho4 that living beings emerged ully developed and in a per ect state on the Earth. That means that Bthe origin o species5B contrary to 9ar4in>s supposition5 is not evolution5 but creation.
The Tale of Human '8olution
The subCect most o ten brought up by advocates o the theory o evolution is the subCect o
the origin o man. The 9ar4inist claim holds that modern man evolved rom ape&li,e creatures. 9uring this alleged evolutionary process5 4hich is supposed to have started '&3 million years ago5 some Btransitional ormsB bet4een modern man and his ancestors are supposed to have eDisted. %ccording to this completely imaginary scenario5 our basic BcategoriesB are listed: ,- $ustralo ithecus .- /omo habilis 0- /omo erectus 1- /omo sa iens Evolutionists call man>s so&called irst ape&li,e ancestors %ustralopithecus5 4hich means BSouth % rican ape.B These living beings are actually nothing but an old ape species that has become eDtinct. EDtensive research done on various %ustralopithecus specimens by t4o 4orld amous anatomists rom England and the 6S%5 namely5 Nord Solly Wuc,erman and Pro . Charles ODnard5 sho4s that these apes belonged to an ordinary ape species that became eDtinct and bore no resemblance to humans.3' Evolutionists classi y the neDt stage o human evolution as Bhomo5B that is Bman.B %ccording to their claim5 the living beings in the 8omo series are more developed than $ustralo ithecus. Evolutionists devise a anci ul evolution scheme by arranging di erent ossils o these creatures in a particular order. This scheme is imaginary because it has never been proved that there is an evolutionary relation bet4een these di erent classes. Ernst Mayr5 one o the t4entieth century>s most important evolutionists5 contends in his boo, *ne Long $rgument that Bparticularly historical UpuzzlesV such as the origin o li e or o 8omo sapiens5 are eDtremely di icult and may even resist a inal5 satis ying eDplanation.B33 *y outlining the lin, chain as %ustralopithecus X /omo habilis 2 /omo erectus 2 /omo sa iens, evolutionists imply that each o these species is one another>s ancestor. 8o4ever5 recent indings o paleoanthropologists have revealed that $ustralo ithecus, /omo habilis, and /omo erectus lived at di erent parts o the 4orld at the same time.32 Moreover5 a certain segment o humans classi ied as /omo erectus have lived up until very modern times. /omo sa iens nean#arthalensis and /omo sa iens sa iens -modern man1 co&eDisted in the same region.3) This situation apparently indicates the invalidity o the claim that they are ancestors o one another. Stephen Aay Fould eDplained this deadloc, o the theory o evolution5 although he 4as himsel one o the leading advocates o evolution in the t4entieth century: <hat has become o our ladder i there are three coeDisting lineages o hominids -%. a ricanus5 the robust australopithecines5 and 8. habilis15 none clearly derived rom anotherI Moreover5 none o the three display any evolutionary trends during their tenure on earth.3? Put brie ly5 the scenario o human evolution5 4hich is BupheldB 4ith the help o various dra4ings o some Bhal ape5 hal humanB creatures appearing in the media and course boo,s5 that is5 ran,ly5 by means o propaganda5 is nothing but a tale 4ith no scienti ic oundation. Nord Solly Wuc,erman5 one o the most amous and respected scientists in the 6.7.5 4ho carried out research on this subCect or years and studied $ustralo ithecus ossils or "3 years5
inally concluded5 despite being an evolutionist himsel 5 that there is5 in act5 no such amily tree branching out rom ape&li,e creatures to man. Wuc,erman also made an interesting Bspectrum o scienceB ranging rom those he considered scienti ic to those he considered unscienti ic. %ccording to Wuc,erman>s spectrum5 the most Bscienti icB G that is5 depending on concrete data G ields o science are chemistry and physics. % ter them come the biological sciences and then the social sciences. %t the ar end o the spectrum5 4hich is the part considered to be most Bunscienti ic5B are BeDtra&sensory perceptionB G concepts such as telepathy and siDth sense G and inally Bhuman evolution.B Wuc,erman eDplains his reasoning: <e then move right o the register o obCective truth into those ields o presumed biological science5 li,e eDtrasensory perception or the interpretation o man>s ossil history5 4here to the aith ul UevolutionistV anything is possible G and 4here the ardent believer Uin evolutionV is sometimes able to believe several contradictory things at the same time.3/ The tale o human evolution boils do4n to nothing but the preCudiced interpretations o some ossils unearthed by certain people5 4ho blindly adhere to their theory.
*esides all the technical evidence 4e have dealt 4ith so ar5 let us no4 or once5 eDamine 4hat ,ind o a superstition the evolutionists have 4ith an eDample so simple as to be understood even by children: The theory o evolution asserts that li e is ormed by chance. %ccording to this claim5 li eless and unconscious atoms came together to orm the cell and then they someho4 ormed other living things5 including man. Net us thin, about that. <hen 4e bring together the elements that are the building&bloc,s o li e such as carbon5 phosphorus5 nitrogen and potassium5 only a heap is ormed. (o matter 4hat treatments it undergoes5 this atomic heap cannot orm even a single living being. ! you li,e5 let us ormulate an BeDperimentB on this subCect and let us eDamine on the behal o evolutionists 4hat they really claim 4ithout pronouncing loudly under the name B9ar4inian ormulaB: Net evolutionists put plenty o materials present in the composition o living things such as phosphorus5 nitrogen5 carbon5 oDygen5 iron5 and magnesium into big barrels. Moreover5 let them add in these barrels any material that does not eDist under normal conditions5 but they thin, as necessary. Net them add in this miDture as many amino acids and as many proteins G a single one o 4hich has a ormation probability o "#&/3# G as they li,e. Net them eDpose these miDtures to as much heat and moisture as they li,e. Net them stir these 4ith 4hatever technologically developed device they li,e. Net them put the oremost scientists beside these barrels. Net these eDperts 4ait in turn beside these barrels or billions5 and even trillions o years. Net them be ree to use all ,inds o conditions they believe to be necessary or a human>s ormation. (o matter 4hat they do5 they cannot produce rom these barrels a human5 say a pro essor that eDamines his cell structure under the electron microscope. They cannot produce gira es5 lions5 bees5 canaries5 horses5 dolphins5 roses5 orchids5 lilies5 carnations5 bananas5 oranges5 apples5 dates5 tomatoes5
melons5 4atermelons5 igs5 olives5 grapes5 peaches5 pea o4ls5 pheasants5 multicoloured butter lies5 or millions o other living beings such as these. !ndeed5 they could not obtain even a single cell o any one o them. *rie ly5 unconscious atoms cannot orm the cell by coming together. They cannot ta,e a ne4 decision and divide this cell into t4o5 then ta,e other decisions and create the pro essors 4ho irst invent the electron microscope and then eDamine their o4n cell structure under that microscope. Matter is an unconscious5 li eless heap5 and it comes to li e 4ith %llah>s superior creation. The theory o evolution5 4hich claims the opposite5 is a total allacy completely contrary to reason. Thin,ing even a little bit on the claims o evolutionists discloses this reality5 Cust as in the above eDample.
Te(hnology in the 'ye and the 'ar
%nother subCect that remains unans4ered by evolutionary theory is the eDcellent Huality o perception in the eye and the ear. *e ore passing on to the subCect o the eye5 let us brie ly ans4er the Huestion o ho4 4e see. Night rays coming rom an obCect all oppositely on the eye>s retina. 8ere5 these light rays are transmitted into electric signals by cells and reach a tiny spot at the bac, o the brain5 the Bcenter o vision.B These electric signals are perceived in this center as an image a ter a series o processes. <ith this technical bac,ground5 let us do some thin,ing. The brain is insulated rom light. That means that its inside is completely dar,5 and that no light reaches the place 4here it is located. Thus5 the Bcenter o visionB is never touched by light and may even be the dar,est place you have ever ,no4n. 8o4ever5 you observe a luminous5 bright 4orld in this pitch dar,ness. The image ormed in the eye is so sharp and distinct that even the technology o the t4entieth century has not been able to attain it. =or instance5 loo, at the boo, you are reading5 your hands 4ith 4hich you are holding it5 and then li t your head and loo, around you. 8ave you ever seen such a sharp and distinct image as this one at any other placeI Even the most developed television screen produced by the greatest television producer in the 4orld cannot provide such a sharp image or you. This is a three&dimensional5 colored5 and eDtremely sharp image. =or more than "## years5 thousands o engineers have been trying to achieve this sharpness. =actories5 huge premises 4ere established5 much research has been done5 plans and designs have been made or this purpose. %gain5 loo, at a TQ screen and the boo, you hold in your hands. $ou 4ill see that there is a big di erence in sharpness and distinction. Moreover5 the TQ screen sho4s you a t4o&dimensional image5 4hereas 4ith your eyes5 you 4atch a three&dimensional perspective 4ith depth. =or many years5 tens o thousands o engineers have tried to ma,e a three&dimensional TQ and achieve the vision Huality o the eye. $es5 they have made a three&dimensional television system5 but it is not possible to 4atch it 4ithout putting on special @&9 glassesE moreover5 it is only an arti icial three&dimension. The bac,ground is more blurred5 the oreground appears li,e a
paper setting. (ever has it been possible to produce a sharp and distinct vision li,e that o the eye. !n both the camera and the television5 there is a loss o image Huality. Evolutionists claim that the mechanism producing this sharp and distinct image has been ormed by chance. (o45 i somebody told you that the television in your room 4as ormed as a result o chance5 that all o its atoms Cust happened to come together and ma,e up this device that produces an image5 4hat 4ould you thin,I 8o4 can atoms do 4hat thousands o people cannotI ! a device producing a more primitive image than the eye could not have been ormed by chance5 then it is very evident that the eye and the image seen by the eye could not have been ormed by chance. The same situation applies to the ear. The outer ear pic,s up the available sounds by the auricle and directs them to the middle ear5 the middle ear transmits the sound vibrations by intensi ying them5 and the inner ear sends these vibrations to the brain by translating them into electric signals. Aust as 4ith the eye5 the act o hearing inalizes in the center o hearing in the brain. The situation in the eye is also true or the ear. That is5 the brain is insulated rom sound Cust as it is rom light. !t does not let any sound in. There ore5 no matter ho4 noisy is the outside5 the inside o the brain is completely silent. (evertheless5 the sharpest sounds are perceived in the brain. !n your completely silent brain5 you listen to symphonies5 and hear all o the noises in a cro4ded place. 8o4ever5 4ere the sound level in your brain measured by a precise device at that moment5 complete silence 4ould be ound to be prevailing there. %s is the case 4ith imagery5 decades o e ort have been spent in trying to generate and reproduce sound that is aith ul to the original. The results o these e orts are sound recorders5 high& idelity systems5 and systems or sensing sound. 9espite all o this technology and the thousands o engineers and eDperts 4ho have been 4or,ing on this endeavor5 no sound has yet been obtained that has the same sharpness and clarity as the sound perceived by the ear. Thin, o the highest&Huality hi& i systems produced by the largest company in the music industry. Even in these devices5 4hen sound is recorded some o it is lostE or 4hen you turn on a hi& i you al4ays hear a hissing sound be ore the music starts. 8o4ever5 the sounds that are the products o the human body>s technology are eDtremely sharp and clear. % human ear never perceives a sound accompanied by a hissing sound or 4ith atmospherics as does a hi& iE rather5 it perceives sound eDactly as it is5 sharp and clear. This is the 4ay it has been since the creation o man. So ar5 no man&made visual or recording apparatus has been as sensitive and success ul in perceiving sensory data as are the eye and the ear. 8o4ever5 as ar as seeing and hearing are concerned5 a ar greater truth lies beyond all this.

<ho 4atches an alluring 4orld in the brain5 listens to symphonies and the t4ittering o birds5 and smells the roseI The stimulations coming rom a person>s eyes5 ears5 and nose travel to the brain as electro& chemical nerve impulses. !n biology5 physiology5 and biochemistry boo,s5 you can ind many

/ >aterialist &aith
The in ormation 4e have presented so ar sho4s us that the theory o evolution is incompatible 4ith scienti ic indings. The theory>s claim regarding the origin o li e is inconsistent 4ith science5 the evolutionary mechanisms it proposes have no evolutionary po4er5 and ossils demonstrate that the reHuired intermediate orms have never eDisted. So5 it certainly ollo4s that the theory o evolution should be pushed aside as an unscienti ic idea. This is ho4 many ideas5 such as the Earth¢ered universe model5 have been ta,en out o the agenda o science throughout history. 8o4ever5 the theory o evolution is ,ept on the agenda o science. Some people even try to represent criticisms directed against it as an Battac, on science.B <hyI The reason is that this theory is an indispensable dogmatic belie or some circles. These circles are blindly devoted to materialist philosophy and adopt 9ar4inism because it is the only materialist eDplanation that can be put or4ard to eDplain the 4or,ings o nature. !nterestingly enough5 they also con ess this act rom time to time. % 4ell&,no4n geneticist and an outspo,en evolutionist5 Richard C.

Moreover5 that materialism is absolute5 so 4e cannot allo4 a 9ivine UinterventionV...2# These are eDplicit statements that 9ar4inism is a dogma ,ept alive Cust or the sa,e o adherence to materialism.

and so on5 out o inanimate matter. This is a precept contrary both to reason and science. $et 9ar4inists continue to de end it Cust so as Bnot to allo4 a 9ivine intervention.B %nyone 4ho does not loo, at the origin o living beings 4ith a materialist preCudice 4ill see this evident truth: %ll living beings are 4or,s o a Creator5 <ho is %ll&Po4er ul5 %ll&<ise5 and %ll&7no4ing.

%nyone ree o preCudice and the in luence o any particular ideology5 4ho uses only his or her reason and logic5 4ill clearly understand that belie in the theory o evolution5 4hich brings to mind the superstitions o societies 4ith no ,no4ledge o science or civilization5 is Huite impossible. %s eDplained above5 those 4ho believe in the theory o evolution thin, that a e4 atoms and molecules thro4n into a huge vat could produce thin,ing5 reasoning pro essors and university studentsE such scientists as Einstein and FalileoE such artists as 8umphrey *ogart5 =ran, Sinatra and Nuciano PavarottiE as 4ell as antelopes5 lemon trees5 and carnations.
