An Unholy Alliance

The thought of an alliance between Muslims and Creationist Christians sends shivers down my spine. Yet, here it is, it exists.

Unknown outside Muslim circles two years ago, Adnan Oktar -- the 52-year-old Turk behind the pseudonym Harun Yahya -- caught the attention of scientists and teachers in Europe and North America by mass-mailing them his 768-page "Atlas of Creation".

His lavishly illustrated book preaches a Muslim version of creationism, the view scientists usually hear from Christian fundamentalists who say God created all life on earth just as it is today and oppose the teaching of Darwin's evolution theory.

Run for the hills...

The best thing about religion is the fact that they all hate each other. I don't see that ending any time soon.
