 Harun Yahya and Islamic Creationism
Before the Yahya era, expressions of creationist sentiment in Turkey were generally confined to religious intellectual circles; these writings rarely went beyond throwaway references to the obvious intelligent design in biology, and denunciations of evolution generally occupied a few passages in books concentrating on larger religious themes.
In contrast, Yahya's material is in full color, printed on glossy paper, copiously illustrated, popular in orientation (it uses few Arabic terms, unlike much religious literature), and available in all sorts of modern media.
With Harun Yahya, we have a phenomenon which we in the Western world we should carefully watch and learn from as we celebrate "Darwin Day." For here we have a creationism which threatens to be successful in its ambitions to drive evolution out of the culture.

 Harun Yahya : an Invitation to Dogmatism
Yahya tells us that "[the] instincts [of living things], which Darwin was unable to explain within the scope of evolution, are actually the inspiration given by God to all living things", and that "God is the master and supervisor of everything and that every living creature acts on His inspiration".
Yahya demonstrates his ignorance of basic definitions again, by defining vestigial organs by "non-functional organs", and complaining that they "[turn] out to be organs whose functions had not yet been discovered", thus once again disproving evolution.
Yahya, fearing that his readers may not have the imagination to grasp the probability involved (1 on 10 950), conveniently included the complete notation of the number 1 with 950 zeros.
