Pretty much "Intelligent Design."

Or exactly the same thing as America's Religious Right are fighting to teach since abandoning faith in a literal interpretation in Genesis for the new age tower of "babble" that is IDism..

Despite Significant Similarities



Hebrew and Christian Creation Myth

In the beginning there was a void. A few thousand years ago god made the heavens and earth and then the people and all the animals. God made all the living creatures separately, and in just six days; on the seventh day god rested. God made first man, Adam, and first woman, Eve. They lived in a state of bliss in a lush garden (the Garden of Eden) with dominion over all the animals. There was a special tree (the tree of knowledge of good and evil), and also a wicked serpent. The woman conversed with the serpent, broke the rules, ate the forbidden fruit of that tree, and gave the fruit to the man to eat. Because of this rule-breaking, both the woman and the man were punished and were thrown out of the garden. First Man and First Woman had one good son (Abel) and one bad son (Cain) and then Cain killed Abel. Tired of the sinfulness of man, god created a giant flood to destroy the whole world, allowing only Noah and the few humans and animals that could fit into his boat to survive. All the living people and animals are descendants of the only survivors of this flood.

Islamic Creation Myth

Islam is the youngest of the three major one-god believing (monotheistic) religions in the world (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), which all originated in the Middle East. All three share the same basic creation myth. In Islam, as in the other two, a single all powerful god created nature out of nothingness and made all of nature subservient to humanity in six days. Adam was the first prophet, forgiven by a merciful god for his lapses. Each element of creation (all the people, the plants, the animals) reflects a specific set of divine rules and patterns. The created universe as a whole is well ordered, with no gaps or discontinuities, and everything is in its proper place. This very orderliness is itself proof of god.


As some Qua'ranic scholars will argue based on a head to head scientific comparison only the latter version, The Qua'ran, is actually consistent with modern science.

Sounds like "Intelligent Design" to me! Way to capitulate Religious Right.
:shk:

i remember reading that the actual translation from ancient hebrew means god gave man the obligation/responsability to watch over his creation , which if translated in a propper way would have maybe changed the way the "judeo-christian" world behaves

anyone info about it ?

Well,
If we go by what has already been seen, Osama's schools would not teach that or any other subject other than the Quran.
And that would only be available to the chosen few.

In Turkey, creationism is on the rise. A 'man' named '[url=www.harunyahya.com/]Harun Yayha[url]' is a big promoter of it, but he is actually a bit of a mystery and thought, in fact, to be a pen name of a collection of people.


The basic information is generally lifted from the american creationist movement, with anti-modernism and anti-westernism and anti-christianism thrown in. They use basically the same logic and rationale to extend to these other fields
