Professor Richard Dawkins wants to convert Islamic world to evolution
The author of The God Delusion and The Selfish Gene, whose new book, The Greatest Show on Earth, is serialised in The Times next week, has topped bestseller lists all over the world but never in a predominantly Muslim country.
None of Professor Dawkins‚Äô books, on evolution as well as religion, has ever been translated into Arabic, and his work has been heavily censored in Turkey. In an interview with The Times, he said that popularising evolution in the Islamic world, where creationist beliefs are strong, was a challenge he is keen to take up. ‚ÄúTo be a bestseller in a Muslim country would be a personal triumph,‚ÄĚ he said.
‚ÄúI would like to see my books translated into Arabic. They haven‚Äôt been. They are all translated into Hebrew. Persian, I‚Äôm not sure. My books are translated into Turkish and they regularly get censored and suppressed....
Amusing! It is lucky he's not in an Islamic country, he probably be stoned for his opinions, in spite of his physical handicaps, because of the [URL=http://www.answering-islam.org/Books/Barton/11.htm]]]Inadequacy of Islam[/URL]! He apparently doesn't realize, [URL=http://www.answering-islam.org/Assumptions/ceiling.htm]]]Islam: The Iron Ceiling[/URL].
I have news for him, no Islamic country that I know of has freedom of the press!
