About

In short, science, modernity, Islamic thought, and the interconnections among them.

Evolution is the ultimate test case in the debate on religion vs. science, and the debate on religion vs. science is at the crux of the larger debate on traditional religion vs. modernity.

As such, evolution is a pressing yet sensitive topic for the modern Muslim community. As more and more Muslims are exposed to the philosophy of evolution, the need for a critical Muslim engagement with the subject becomes ever more urgent.

Despite the great need and the even greater stakes, few Muslim commentators have presented a sustained critique of evolution and its underlying philosophy. IslamAndEvolution.com is an attempt toward meeting that need.
