By Syed Aslam, Sofia Anjum Taj

The writer argues that there's no clash among evolution and the Qur'anic notion of construction. He then provides the truth that lots of the thinkers of the golden interval of the Islamic civilization and lots of glossy Muslim thinkers supported the belief of evolution. He has committed seven chapters to turn out the validity of evolution. finally, he's taking on Mr. Harun Yahya the recognized Muslim creationist.

Example text

Most of the rocks exposed at the surface of the Earth are sedimentary, formed from particles of older rocks that have been broken apart by water or wind. The gravel, sand, and mud settle to the bottom in rivers, lakes, and oceans. These sedimentary particles may bury living and dead animals and plants on the lake or sea bottom. With the passage of time and the accumulation of more particles, and often with chemical changes, the sediments at the bottom of the pile become rock. Gravel becomes a rock called conglomerate, sand becomes sandstone, mud becomes mudstone or shale, and the animal skeletons and plant pieces can become fossils.

These plants and animals never existed in the wild which we have created. What I am trying to say is that we human beings have managed to bring about these tremendous changes in a fraction of a second in terms of geological time. Think what can happen in millions of years in the crucible of nature? It is a very common question people ask: why an organism did not change but its progeny evolved into a different species? This is a very good question; the answer is very simple; every creature on earth is a product of its 32 environment, time and food it consumes.

Some of them evolved into lobe finned fish like Eusthenopteron foordi by 385 million years ago. This fish had large bony fins which allowed it to walk on mud. This fish had both gills and lungs. Ten million years later we find a transitional creature Tiktaalik roseae which I have discussed in great detail. Then by 365 million years ago we find the fossil of first tetrapod Acanthostega gunnari with eight limb bones. And finally five million years later a true tetrapods; Hynerpeton with five limb bones.
