Sometimes the questions of an innocent child make your thinking to off in new directions. It was his son asking why he was taught evolution in public school and creationism in Muslim school that caused Dr, Shanavas to research and then write this book. He sees it as lamentable that many Muslim imams have taken the pseudoscience of the fundamentalist Christians and are teaching it to their students. Likewise he laments that students in the sciences look at what the imams are teaching and begin to distrust or reject Islam.

His studies took him back to the Qur'an itself and further into the teachings of early Muslim scholars to come up with a view that evolution is an intelligent design in its own right. It was (I have to say 'may.') have been set up by a higher power to manifest His omniscience, supremacy, and grace in a universe constructed with creatures of limited free will. The rejection of science by the Muslims has to be a major part of why the Muslims, on a world wide basis, are so far behind the western countries.

This book certainly presents a view different from the fundamentalist Christians. It is to be hoped that our Government can see enough to take other religious views into mind when crafting legislation. We do have a fundamental tenant in the separation of church and state.
