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.
Creation AND/OR Evolution An Islamic Perspective.

Can someone who has read this book give us a good review? How factual is it? And is it worth the $22?
