The fact that such a question as whether such
a scientific advance as cloning "supports evolution" is asked
or even comes to mind actually reveals a very important truth.
This is the cheapness of the propaganda that evolutionists
resort to to get people to accept their theory. Since the
subject of cloning has nothing to do with the theory of evolution,
it cannot be a matter of concern for any professional evolutionist.
However, some of those who blindly support evolution at whatever
cost, and particularly certain circles within media organizations,
have even tried to turn such a totally unconnected matter
as cloning into propaganda for evolution.
What does cloning a living thing
Cloning is the using of one
life form's DNA code to make a copy of that life form
in the laboratory. It is a biological process, and has
nothing to do with evolution. There is no question of
the emergence of a new species or organ, nor indeed
of any development or change.
The DNA of the living thing that is proposed
to be copied is used in the cloning process. The DNA is extracted
from any cell belonging to the organism in question, and then
placed into an egg cell belonging to another organism of the
same species. A shock is then given immediately afterwards,
which prompts the egg cell to start dividing. The embryo is
then placed into a living thing's womb, where it continues
to divide. Scientists then await its development and birth.
Why has cloning nothing to do with
has recently become a matter of major concern to scientists.
Although it is a biological process carried out within
the framework of known laws, evolutionists have tried
to take it over in the excited hope that it might support
their theory, as happens with every new scientific discovery.
The media that gives ideological backing to evolution
made headlines out of it, accompanied by slogans supporting
evolution. Although it has absolutely no scientific foundation,
Darwinists attempted to use cloning as evidence for evolution
in various debates. Yet it was clear that cloning had
nothing to do with evolution. The scientific community
did not even take these ridiculous efforts seriously.

The concepts of cloning and evolution are completely
different. The theory of evolution is built on the claim that
inanimate matter turned into living matter by chance. (There
is not the slightest scientific proof that this could actually
happen.) Cloning, on the other hand, is the copying of a living
thing by using genetic material from that creature's cells.
The new organism starts from a single cell, and a biological
process is transferred to the laboratory and repeated there.
In other words, there is no question of such a process happening
by "chance"-the basic claim of the theory of evolution-nor
of "lifeless matter coming to life."
The cloning process is no evidence for evolution
whatsoever. It is, however, clear evidence of a biological
law that totally undermines evolution.
That is the famous principle that "Life can only
come from life," put forward by the famous scientist Louis
Pasteur towards the end of the nineteenth century. The fact
that cloning is presented as evidence for evolution, despite
that open truth, is a deception being carried out by the media.
Copying consists of adding already
existing genetic information to the already existing
reproductive mechanism of a living thing. No new mechanism
or genetic information is created by the process.
Advances in many branches of science over the
last 30 years have demonstrated that the emergence of life
cannot be explained in terms of chance. Evolutionists' scientific
errors and one-sided comments have been well-documented, and
the theory of evolution has become indefensible within the
realm of science. This fact has propelled some evolutionists
to look in other areas. That is why scientific advances such
as "cloning," or "test-tube babies," have been so fanatically
used as evidence for evolution in the recent past.
Evolutionists have nothing more to say to society
in the name of science, and so take refuge in the gaps in
people's scientific knowledge and try to prolong the theory's
life in that way, even though that merely brings the theory
to a pitiable state. Just like all other scientific advances,
cloning is a very important and revealing scientific advance
that also sheds light on the fact that life was created.
Other misinterpretations of cloning
Another misunderstanding that people have fallen
into as regards cloning is the idea that cloning can "create
human beings." However, cloning bears no such interpretation.
Cloning consists of adding genetic information which already
exists to a living reproduction mechanism that also already
exists. No new mechanism or genetic information is created
in the process. Genetic information is taken from someone
who already exists and is placed inside a female womb. This
enables the child that is eventually born to be the "identical
twin" of the person from whom the genetic information was
Many people who do not fully understand what
cloning is have all kinds of fantastic ideas about it. For
instance, they imagine that a cell can be taken from a 30-year-old
man and another 30-year-old can be created that same day.
Such an example of cloning is only to be found in science
fiction, and is not and never will be possible. Cloning basically
consists of bringing a person's "identical twin" to life by
natural methods (in other words in a mother's womb).This has
nothing to do with the theory of evolution, nor with the concept
of "creating man."
Creating a human being or any other living thing-in
other words bringing something into existence out of nothing-is
a power peculiar to God. Scientific advances confirm the same
thing by showing that this creation cannot be done by man.
This is expressed in a verse:
The Originator of the heavens and Earth.
When He decides on something, He just says to it, "Be!" and
it is. (Qur'an, 2: 117)
