"What those [people] are engaged in is destined for destruction, and worthless is what they have been doing." (Surah al-A'raf, 7:139)
After having been enlightened about the religion of Darwinism, one might ask himself: What is the purpose of this religion? What does Darwinism, with its revered founder, its "holy" book, its missionaries and its powerful organizations throughout the world hope to accomplish?
This religion has but one aim: to take the place of revealed religions - especially the one unblemished religion, Islam - and destroy them. In other words, Darwinism is an anti-religion in opposition to true religion, proposed as an alternative. Every pagan religion has had the same purpose.
As described previously, the people of Sheba prostrated themselves to the sun, but the Qur'an draws attention to an important fact, that the founder of a pagan religion, the one who makes it attractive to people and diverts them from the right way, is Satan.
"[The hoopoe said], 'I found her and her people prostrating to the sun instead of Allah, and Satan has made their deeds pleasing to them and averted them from the [right] way, so they are not guided.'" 77
Therefore, pagan religions that stand opposed to the revelations of Allah rely on the revelations of Satan, who does everything in his power to prevent people from submitting to Allah. But Satan himself knows that the sun is not a god to be worshipped and that Allah created the sun just as He created the whole universe.
Likewise, the religion of Darwinism was formed not to do service to the "evolutionary process" or scientific research. In fact, there is no "evolutionary process" to study. The real purpose of this false religion is to divert people from belief in Allah. That is why one of its most renowned supporters, Julian Huxley, described the purpose of the theory of evolution in these terms:
A religion is essentially an attitude to the world as a whole. Thus evolution, for example, may prove as powerful a principle to coordinate man's beliefs and hopes as God was in the past. 78
The most important aim of the theory is to graft into the human mind the deception that the world was not created by Allah and that, consequently, there is no responsibility for adhering to a divine law. Evolutionists emphasize this often, pointing out that a human being is his own "master" and his own "keeper," responsible "only to himself."
The truth revealed to humanity in Islam and other religions based on divine revelations is that Allah created man for a purpose:
"Does man think that he will be left neglected? Has he not been a sperm from semen emitted? Then he was a clinging clot, and [Allah] created [his form] and proportioned [him] and made of him two mates, the male and the female. Is not that [Creator] able to give life to the dead?" 79
Allah fashioned human beings and made life in this world a time of trial for them. In this testing period a human being is responsible for every deed he does, every word he speaks or writes, indeed, every thought he entertains in his mind; for man is responsible to his Lord.
Therefore, those who have fallen under the influence of this evolutionist religion, even if they be its avid supporters, must escape from it as soon as they can. It is essential that they acknowledge their noble responsibility, bow their heads and submit to Allah, our Lord. Otherwise, they will remain closed-minded dogmatists, living a false life as members of a false religion:
"And if they should see every sign, they will not believe in it. And if they see the way of consciousness, 80 they will not adopt it as a way; but if they see the way of error, they will adopt it as a way. That is because they have denied Our signs and were heedless of them." 81
They will meet their day of reckoning when they least expect it, and facing the account they had always denied, will have to bear the consequences.
