The Evolution Deceit

The other day I was walking in Sultanahmet on the way Cagloglu Hamam when I saw a stand with books, with a sign that said “Free For Tourists”. In English! Well, since I was in tourist mode at the time I decide to pick up a book.

It was called “The Evolution Deceit”, written by Harun Yahya. All about the supposed fallacy of evolution(I won’t go into my own views on that). Your basic free book, nothing that special.

But I heard from my friend the author – Harun Yahya – is a pen name for a fellow named Adnan Oktar, who in the past was a leader of a sex cult. I have not been able to confirm this at all, but I have seen that this fellow has written a lot of books.

Anyone know anything about this guy or can confirm what I have heard?

    So this book is translated to English as well!
    For many years I had seen that book was distributing at the entrance of my university.
    So the writer of this book maybe a leader of a sex cult, and if I don’t remember wrong he was also a leader of a sect, right? (I may remember wrong because I don’t follow such kind of news.) Interesting combination!
