    A book on Albert Einstein describes the physicist as “filthy and slovenly”. Immediately after saying that he ate soap, it adds: “The sad part is during that time the Gestapo was putting Jews into ovens and making them into soap.”

    The book on Darwin says the proponent of natural selection “had two problems: first he was a Jew; second, he hated his prominent forehead, big nose and misshapen teeth.” It adds that he threw nuts to monkeys at the zoo rather than go to school. Darwin was not Jewish.

    But Yaman Akdeniz, a professor of law at Istanbul’s Bilgi university, said that the attack on Darwin came in the context of a more general assault on evolution, which many Turks associate with atheism. Mr Akdeniz represented Richard Dawkins, the British scientist, in a case that successfully reversed a two-year ban on Mr Dawkins’ website. “Evolution is the second most sensitive issue after sexually explicit material,” he said.

    No matter what religion they follow, fundamentalists think alike. May be these guys could join hands with Christian far-right and jointly protest against Darwin ;)

    These morons don't even realize that the theory of evolution has bypassed darwins basic assumptions.
    Now modern science using genetics,archaeology and computer simulation has proven evolution.
    Infact darwin has been proven wrong in his model of evolution but evolution itself has not been proven wrong.Modern science has redefined evolution with strong evidences supporting it. Anybody who denies it is a moron or has some agenda.

    Abhramic religions believe that GOD created the human.They are history-centric. That's why they have paranoia for evolution because it breaks the foundation of abhramic religions.
