Muslim Medical Students Boycotting Science Classes on evolution because it clashes with the Koran

I am surprised the headline wasn't 'Darwin hate speech incites Muslim extremism. The idea that they reject that which conflicts with their belief system is consistent with everything we have suffered in this war on the West. They rewrote the history on Israel and the Middle East (not to mention taking credit for "scientific inventions" invented by others)  and the left swallowed it whole - let's see where this goes.

Muslim medical students boycotting lectures on evolution... because it 'clashes with the Koran' By Daily Mail Reporter (hat tip Phillipa)

Muslim students, including trainee doctors on one of Britain's leading medical courses, are walking out of lectures on evolution claiming it conflicts with creationist ideas established in the Koran.

Professors at University College London have expressed concern over the increasing number of biology students boycotting lectures on Darwinist theory, which form an important part of the syllabus, citing their religion. 

Similar to the beliefs expressed by fundamentalist Christians, Muslim opponents to Darwinism maintain that Allah created the world, mankind and all known species in a single act.

Steve Jones emeritus professor of human genetics at university college London has questioned why such students would want to study biology at all when it obviously conflicts with their beliefs.

He told the Sunday Times: 'I had one or two slightly frisky discussions years ago with kids who belonged to fundamentalist Christian churches, now it is Islamic overwhelmingly.

I love how they throw in Fundamentalist Christians- they always have to quality this Islamic supremacist totalitarianism. Christian kids aren't walking out of class - or slaughtering non-Christians for that matter.

'They don't come [to lectures] or they complain about it or they send notes or emails saying they shouldn't have to learn this stuff.

'What they object to - and I don't really understand it, I am not religious - they object to the idea that there is a random process out there which is not directed by God.'

Earlier this year Usama Hasan, iman of the Masjid al-Tawhid mosque in Leyton, received death threats for suggesting that Darwinism and Islam might be compatible.

Sources within the group Muslims4UK partly blame the growing popularity of creationist beliefs within Islam on Turkish author Harun Yahya who, influenced by the success of Christian creationists in America, has written several books denouncing Darwinist theory.

Yahya associates Dawinism with Nazism and his books are and videos are available at many Islamic bookshops in the UK and regularly feature on Islamic television channels.

As long as Bible-believing Christians don’t do the same thing, there won’t be a problem.

So, will they let the Muzzies get away with it? They refuse to let Christians teach even a brief class pointing out that there are problems with Darwinism. In fact, a lot of scientists would say that there are problems with the General Theory of Evolution, not to mention the supremacy of some human races over others.

If they let the Muzzies skate, then they may have to deal with the Christians. Or, of course, they can always set up a double standard, as they usually do.

I’m going out on a limb and predicting that they will go the double standard route.

That's interesting, considering what side Turkey was on in both world wars.

Will the Multicultural atheists ever recognize “Christianity” as a culture?

Heck, “Dick and Jane at the Beach” clashes with the koran.

“See Dick run,run run run.
See Jane run and show her bare feet, oh oh oh!
See Dick beat the bejeesus out of his sister with a boat oar, whap whap whap!”

Nope. Islam isn’t a threat to their agenda. Christianity is.

If it weren't for double standards, liberals wouldn't have any.

(Of course they think they are morally superior to us because they have twice as many standards)...

Hmmm. Me, too. Of course I also associate Islam with Nazism. So Yahya and I might not become the closest of friends.

Wonderful!

Does this means these students, not having satisfied taking the required courses, will fail the course?

That would seem like the simple solution wouldn't it? Take
the course and pass it or you don't get a medical degree.

I guess that is too judgmental in the age of 0bamaCare.

Let them get thrown out of the courses. They would only use the education to make bio-chemical weapons, anyway........

Creationism transcends differences in religion. Creationists are like Creationists.

If Adnan Oktar and Kent Hovind were born in each othere's country, they would be each other.
