I haven't heard anything from this headcase in quite some time. But evidently, he's been busy:

ISLAMIC CREATIONISM INVADES FRANCE (Updated)
An article in yesterday's edition of Le Figaro, the conservative French daily, brings news that a new book written from an Islamic Creationist perspective, ""L'Atlas de la Création" (cover, right) is making waves in France. According to the newspaper, dozens of thousands of free copies of this diatribe against Darwinism were sent from Turkey and Germany to nearly all French schools and universities. The article does not say who paid for this expensive, lavishly-illustrated, 770-page anti-intellectual propaganda tome to be so massively distributed (although it asks the question.). Nor how whomever sent it was able to get a list of the "dozens of thousands" in educational establishments to whom it was individually addressed.

The French Education Ministry reacted by advising all educational establishments that the book does not conform to the national science-based curriculum and "should not be included in the centers of documentation and information in scholarly establishments," and commissioned a dissection and refutation of the book.

The book's pseudonymous author, a Turk named Harun Yahya ( photo left -- real name: Adnan Oktar), makes a number of astonishing claims -- including that Charles Darwin is "the real source of terrorism." For example, a photo of the 9/11 attacks on the Twin Towers carries a caption reading, "Those who perpetuate terror in the world are in reality the Darwinists. Darwinism is the only philosophy which validates and encourages conflict." Yahya also pretends to portray "the secret links between Darwinism and the bloody ideologies of fascism and communism."

Pretty much typical Yahya -- fancy and expensive, and utterly worthless. Hopefully, the French education system will step on his latest, philosophical cockroach before it can reproduce.

He's a nutty idiot for sure. One with BIG bucks behind him, too. His beliefs seem to be exactly those of Jack Chick, aside from switching fundy Islam for fundy Christianity, right down to the hatred of Masonry.

Well, these idiots say that the actual god the Masons worship is "Baphomet," the same charge the Church made against the Knights Templar when they and the King of France decided to destroy and loot that order. The anti-Mason story goes that the Freemasons are descended from the Templars, and that rank-and-file Masons are unaware of being tricked into worshipping a Satanic demon.

I've been studying way too much Chick Tract paranoia recently. Oh, and the Nazis were the biggest purveyors of this kind of crap. That old Nazi, Fred, that I knew and once mentioned here had an absolute loathing for them -- and for the Jesuits. (Fred died a few months ago, still an unreconstructed, though cautious, Nazi.)

(I would actually join the Masons if they'd have an open Atheist, because I admire their charitable work and their stand for separation of Church and State. But I'd be required to fake the God stuff, so I won't try.)
