Written and collected by Zia H Shah MD, Chief Editor of the Muslim Times
Forty percent of U.S. adults ascribe to a strictly creationist view of human origins, believing that God created them in their present form within roughly the past 10,000 years. However, more Americans continue to think that humans evolved over millions of years — either with God’s guidance (33%) or, increasingly, without God’s involvement at all (22%).
Majority of the Muslims are creationists and many of those who believe in evolution, their understanding of evolution is driven by their clergy, rather than thorough scientific understanding.
Such is the grip of faith on many a believers that they cannot be driven to reality without constant flooding of their consciousness with genuine information.
Jane Goodall and David Attenborough have been flooding the media with pictures, videos and news flashes for more than half a century and I want to combine the two floods here to guide the herd of the faithful to more scientific and truer realities.
Their life long work is supporting evidence for evolution among other things and I believe in guided evolution rather than a blind process.
