Harun Yahya, a Local Flood And Noah’s Ark

While it is important to resist Darwinism, it does not profit us spiritually if we are unable to replace it with enduring truth.

Turkish creationist Mr. Adnan Oktar, who usually uses the pen name Harun Yahya, is known for his websites and countless books in which he has shown that for the most part, extinct animal species look just like modern ones.

He has also shown that Darwinism inspired the totalitarian systems of the 20th century, especially Fascism and Communism.

Yahya, who is a devout Muslim, seems to want others to embrace Islam.

Recently, Harun Yahya commented on Noah’s Ark and the Flood that is also mentioned in the Qur’an. Last year a team from Hong Kong announced they had found the remains of Noah’s Ark on Mt. Ararat.

In contrast to several Christian organisations (for instance AiG, CMI and ICR), he thinks that the discovery is genuine. He says that it is ”the first of the sacred relics to be found in the End Times”.

Although Yahya resists Darwinian evolution, he believes in millions of years of Earth history and thinks that the Flood of Noah’s day was a local deluge.

However, if the Flood had been local, there would have been no need for a huge ark.

The Bible does not know of a local Mesopotamian flood. Genesis describes a destructive global flood that left fossils all over the world. Jesus and the apostle Peter also used the Flood as a warning example in their teaching.
