Oh goodness. Islamic Creationism!

Via The New York Times, an Islamic Creationist, apparently a very determined one. He has written a book and has sent it out 'round the world:

At 11 x 17 inches and 12 pounds, with a bright red cover and almost 800 glossy pages, most of them lavishly illustrated, “Atlas of Creation” is probably the largest and most beautiful creationist challenge yet to Darwin’s theory, which Mr. Yahya calls a feeble and perverted ideology contradicted by the Koran. . . .

He said people who had received copies were “just astounded at its size and production values and equally astonished at what a load of crap it is. . . .

While they said they were unimpressed with the book’s content, recipients marveled at its apparent cost. “If you went into a bookstore and saw a book like this, it would be at least $100,” said Dr. Miller, an author of conventional biology texts. “The production costs alone are astronomical. We are talking millions of dollars.”

And then there’s postage.
