FAITH IN FOCUS

Episode 51. Evolution II. The theory of Evolution as put forth by Charles Darwin is universally accepted as a truism, it is the process that governed and shaped life. Yet it still proves to be a deeply divisive theory as soon as God and religion are evoked for one may be a believer in the theory of Evolution or a believer in God as the Creator. Can one not be both? The Holy Quran makes a wide range of observations covering the entire span of the creative process, pertaining to both the evolution of life and the preparatory stages preceding it. The modern theory of punctuated equilibrium might just be proof of a guided evolution that one has been looking for.
