"Evolutionstheorie und Kreationismus im heutigen türkischen Islam"

Jean-Marc Balhan

Research output: Contribution in Book/Catalog/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Abstract: On the basis of a supposed censorship of a Darwin issue of the Turkish popular- scientific magazine Bilim ve Teknik in 2009, the contribution explains the points of view of the different theories of evolution of the Darwin supporters and the supporters of creationism in pre- sent-day Turkey. ¿"Creationism¿" is a teaching developed by American fundamentalistic Protestants after the First World War which, over the course of time, has also arrived in Turkey. Today¿'s creationism is no longer a naive faith, but a multitude of teachings that have skilfully mixed with each other over the years with the help of movements and organizations that do not lack financial and political means and influence.
