Christian defenders of Creation have for years been claiming that the Earth is 6000 years old. Darwinists, who imagined that this played right into their hands, have recently been dealt a new body blow. Adnan Oktar’s (Harun Yahya) stating in his works that the data show that the Earth is 4.5 billion years old and his showing, with supporting evidence, that the life on it is the work of Almighty Allah, was one of the heaviest blows dealt to Darwinism.
Conferences on evolution held recently by world famous Darwinist professors have all been built on this huge defeat. For years, Darwinists regarded the “6000-year-old Earth” claim as one they could easily digest with the fossils dating back millions of years in their possession. They claimed that the defendants of Creation were defeated right from that point. This claim was heralded as one of the greatest proofs confirming the truth of Darwinist fraud. Christian Creationists who maintain that the Earth is 6000 years old are defeated the moment they make such a statement, no matter how powerful the evidence they possess against Darwinism. Indeed, these claims have led to the scientific facts they brought up against evolution not being evaluated properly. Because the idea of “6000 years” conflicts with the scientific facts. It is because of this huge inconsistency that certain Christian Creationists in Europe and America have always been unsuccessful and passive.
Christian Creationists accept this statement as it is in the Gospel while making no interpretation of it. But the fact is that, analyzed on the basis of the proofs of Creation on Earth, the reference to an Earth of 6000 years is used in a very different sense. Creation in six days also appears in the Qur’an:
Your Lord is Allah, Who created the heavens and the earth in six days and then settled Himself firmly on the Throne... (Surat Al-A‘raf, 54)
He directs the whole affair from heaven to earth. Then it will again ascend to Him on a Day whose length is a thousand years by the way you measure. (Surat as-Sajda, 5)
Taking the reference to six days in the one verse together with the idea that one day is a thousand year from the other verse, the result is a reference to the Earth having a life of 6000 years. But what needs to be considered here is not the literal meanings of these expressions, but their deeper and figurative ones. Because the reference that our Lord makes to Creation in six days actually stands for “periods.” Bearing in mind the relativity of time and the speed at which time has passed since the Big Bang to make a calculation, the reference to 6 days in the verse in fact points to a period of billions of years. Calculating every day of Creation in terms of Earth time, the following picture emerges:
Looked at in terms of since time began, the 1st day (1st age) of Creation lasted 24 hours. But this equals 8 billion years in terms of how we perceive time on Earth.
• The 2nd day of Creation (2nd age) lasted 24 hours. But this lasted half as long as the previous day, according to our perception of time. In other words, 4 billion years.• The 3rd day (3rd age) lasted half as long as the second. In other words, 2 billion years.• The 4th day (4th age) lasted 1 billion years.• The 5th day (5th age) lasted 500 million years.• And the 6th day (6th age) lasted 250 million years.• Conclusion: The six days, or six ages, of Creation, added up together in terms of Earth time, produce a total of 15.75 billion years. This figure is in agreement with modern estimations which show that the age of the universe is approximately 15 billion years.

Darwinists Are Unable to Oppose Adnan Oktar
As we summarize here in brief, the Creation in six days that Allah reveals in the Holy Books gives the age of the universe that we already know scientifically. In the light of this, the intellectual struggle against Darwinism waged with fossils dating back millions of years has stunned Darwinists. Not a single Darwinist is at present able to stand up and oppose Adnan Oktar, who has shown the whole world scientific proof that Creation is an absolute reality. They are unable to issue any statements against it, and are quite unable to defend the illogical accounts they used to supply.
Adnan Oktar’s invitations to face-to-face debates with world renowned Darwinists have so far gone unanswered. Because all Darwinists are very well aware that Adnan Oktar will beat them. Adnan Oktar has also frequently reiterated his offer of giving a large reward to anyone producing a single transitional fossil, but that challenge has not been taken up by Darwinist circles, either. The reason for this is that Darwinists themselves they have been defeated in the face of Adnan Oktar, or rather in the face of our Lord’s sublime Creation. Darwinists no longer have a single false means of defending this ruined and disgraced theory. Darwinists never of course dreamed that the 21st century would be one of such a defeat for them, and now they are unwillingly watching this hug collapse take place.
Our Almighty Lord says in one verse:
Glory be to the Lord of the heavens and the earth, the Lord of the Throne, beyond what they describe. (Surat az-Zukhruf, 82)
