Molecular Biology: A Checkmate to Creationism

The apparent conflict between religion and science is often due to the desire of theists to uphold the details of Genesis and dogmas of ‘Original Sin’ and divinity of Jesus Christ.

The two main proofs for the theory of evolution are molecular biology and biogeography. We do not have to be a rocket […]

His observations and collections contributed to the inception of Darwin’s theory of evolution by natural selection.  This is where the definitive evidence for the common lineage of all life […]

Madagascar: An Exhibit for Islam against Christianity!

Almost 80% of species in Madagascar are unique to the island and are not found else where.  As a result this largest island is a witness for evolution, which for our purposes means, a common lineage of all life forms on our planet earth.  The uniqueness of Madagascar species is a proof for the theory of evolution, […]
