Ahmadiyya Views On Evolution
The Ahmadiyya Movement is an offshoot of Islam that universally accept in principle the process of evolution, albeit divinely guided, and actively promotes it. Over the course of several decades the movement has issued various publications in support of the scientific concepts behind the process of evolution, and frequently engages in promoting how religious scripture supports the concept.
Famous quotes containing the words views and/or evolution:
“The universe is wider than our views of it.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“By contrast with history, evolution is an unconscious process. Another, and perhaps a better way of putting it would be to say that evolution is a natural process, history a human one.... Insofar as we treat man as a part of naturefor instance in a biological survey of evolutionwe are precisely not treating him as a historical being. As a historically developing being, he is set over against nature, both as a knower and as a doer.”
—Owen Barfield (b. 1898)
