Adnan Oktar - a recapitualtion

Postby Brian Jordan » Wed Mar 14, 2012 8:43 pm

Browsing elsewhere after plowing through Meyer's empty rhetoric, I found a random selection from their archives on the New Humanist site: an article about Adnan Oktar/Yarun HaHa.

I thought it might be of interest to anyone who hasn't come across this character before - they can suffer too! The article presents him as something of a washed-out warrior but he and his acolytes are still around, peddling their US Christian fundie inspired Islamic creationism. Well, anti-evolutionism, mainly.
At the time of writing,he was awaiting the results of an appeal against a three year gaol sentence - which he has since won. http://www.zaman.com.tr/haber.do?haberno=948301&keyfield=61646E616E206F6B746172 It's very difficult to follow his doings in Turkey, as so many of the reports - like the above - only appear in the Turkish press, in Turkey.

One of his recent stunts was advertising on London buses in September 2011 http://harunyahya.com/en/Makaleler/47074/%27%27Islamic_Creationist_Adnan_Oktar_Launches_London_Bus_Campaign%27%27_-_New_Humanisthttp://wn.com/UK_Adnan_Oktar%27s_Atlas_of_Creation_on_London_Buses

The New Humanist article is exceedingly useful; thanks Brian. I wished we'd picked it up before.

He's basically running a Scientology-type cult.

I have seen the claims about the financial abuse of his followers before.
