Evolution Theory: Darwin’s Gigantic Rip-off
New Book Reveals Evolution Theory’s Islamic Roots
Philadelphia – (July 6, 2005) – The theory of evolution
has Islamic roots. Fact or fiction? In T.O. Shanavas’
provocative new book, Creation AND/OR Evolution, get to
know the real score and witness human life, as you know
it, unravel truths that will challenge everything you
think you know.
Here, Shanavas goes against the flow of established
truths and boldly uncovers the theory of evolution as
originally proposed by Muslims who lived centuries
before Charles Darwin. These Muslims, coupled with
their literal reading of the Qur’an, advocated
evolution of life and natural selection. History shows
that Erasmus Darwin, grandfather of Charles Darwin,
influenced the latter to study the nature and the
evolution of life. The older Darwin learned about
the evolution of life from books written by Muslim
philosophers and scholars who preceded him by
centuries. The young Darwin then collected evidence
to support the theory of evolution.
In Creation AND/OR Evolution, Shanavas describes
an Islamic theory of creation that is not incompatible
with evolution. He accomplishes this by weaving
together insights from modern science, the Qur’an, and
pre-Renaissance Muslim history. He proposes that
evolution is an intelligent design created by a higher
power to manifest His omniscience, supremacy, and grace
in a universe constructed with creatures with limited
free will, rendering his work an important contribution
to the ongoing debate between creationism and evolution.
