Atlas of Creation

by Kieran Healy on September 20, 2007

So Laurie, the lucky duck, got a copy of the Atlas of Creation, the amazingly large-format, glossy-photo-laden, funtastic creationist slice of life, courtesy of whoever is bankrolling its author Adnan Oktar. It’s a fantastic educational resource for our three-year-old: she’s already excited about cutting out the photos of the bunnies and fishies, etc, and making them into collages, puppets and so on. Strongly recommended.

You’re just using creationism to avoid mention of the Georgia match, aren’t you?

“Some 150 years ago, the British naturalist Charles Darwin proposed a theory based on various observations made during his travels, but which could not be supported by any subsequent scientific findings.”

I love it! How did Laurie manage to swing that?

You’re just using creationism to avoid mention of the Georgia match, aren’t you?

The Georgia match was proof that the principle “the Universe was not intelligently designed” is applicable to mereological subcomponents of the universe such as the Irish rugby team.

From the web pages, it does look to have quite the production values, but it is practically LaRouchian in its use of overheated rhetoric – all they need to add is a little Bel Canto singing.

As you shall see, Darwinism is the biggest scandal in history, founded entirely on lies and fraud and on irrational and illogical claims. The entire world will witness the final collapse of Darwinism in the 21st century.

Maybe the Milton Friedman Choir could help them out with that.

A lot of people in my department got one. Took a lot of money to produce!


John Rynne 09.20.07 at 6:53 am

If you are really desperate, you can pick it up second-hand at for prices ranging from $125 (Volume 1 with VCD) to $200 (both volumes). A bargain!

Until recently, no one had the courage to unmask this ruse of satan’s and to publicize the true facts. But in the present century, the response to this deception has finally been laid out in full detail, and the public has been made fully aware of the state of affairs. By the will of God, the collapse of Darwinism has advanced beyond any point of recovery. Indeed, that is the fundamental reason for the panic in the Darwinian global empire.

You WILL pay for this, Adnan Oktar. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he reap. I will not be mocked; nobody defies me, nobody.

Sincerely, Satan.

I seem to recall that Freud wrote somewhere that his parents gave him and his sister a gaudily illustrated book to rip apart, in the hope that their eventual remorse would make them treat books with respect in the future.

But does the book contain pictures of dinosaurs? It’s going to lose a lot of its appeal to small children without them (or is it just British children who are obsessed by dinosaurs?)

My God! abb1 has finally blown his own cover!


abb1 09.20.07 at 11:57 am

Yeah, interesting. On his picture of wonders of civilization I see Bill Gates, Einstein, Queen Elizabeth (naturally), but on the left – is it Brad Pitt with Al Pacino? Wtf?


James Wimberley 09.20.07 at 12:21 pm

Oktar’s impressive bibliography prompts the thought: never mind the quality, feel the bandwidth.


Matt Weiner 09.20.07 at 1:18 pm

None of this makes clear that the pictures on the front are those old-style 3-D moving pictures like on Satanic Majesty’s Request or whatever album it is. Duuuude.


thag 09.20.07 at 2:57 pm


“Duuuude.” prompting the thought:

“watch me refute Darwinism…laydeez!”


Bruce Baugh 09.20.07 at 6:20 pm

I used to be a liberal, but since 9/11 I’ve been outraged by Darwin’s methodology! 2, 3, 4!


bi 09.20.07 at 7:24 pm

But Bruce Baugh, wasn’t 9/11 the work of Allah?

= = =

Thus saith the Wikipedia article:

“Adnan founded the Science Research Foundation (SRF, or BAV in Turkish), whose stated objective is ‘to [establish]…peace, tranquility and love'”

Eh… what?
