Adnan Oktar, an Absolute Clown

In September 2008, a Turkish creationist by the name of Adnan Oktar (aka. Harun Yahya), offered "10 trillion Turkish lira to anyone who produces a single intermediate-form fossil demonstrating evolution". At the time this was around 4.4 trillion pounds, which would have been over 10 trillion NZ dollars. Despite the fact that thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of fossils have already been discovered, and a plethora are avaliable for viewing at various museums around the world, he still makes this offer. Predictably, this creationist cretin hasn't paid anyone, and never will. Unlike the old $250,000 offer that Kent Hovind used to talk about, this offer has standards of evidence that can easily be met by any number of fossils, which leads me to believe that Adnan Oktar is just a deceitful little clown pulling a cheap publicity stunt. Well it worked Adnan, everyone now thinks you're a moron.



  1. Its a pointless challenge, and he probably knew that. No one fossil can prove evolution, as evolutionary changes are only proved by comparing fossils of the same genus of creature over differing time periods.. "wow if he can offer that much money, he must really be correct! Yay for god, who loves everyone!.. except gays."

  2. There are several exceptional transitional fossils that clearly show a form between two stages of it's evolutionary history. For example Tiktaalik, and Archaeopteryx.

    In relation to your comment, Adnan Oktar is a muslim creationist, so his god hates women too.
