It weighs several kilos, has the air of a children’s book, and has been sent in large numbers to French schools: an Islamic creationist apologetic, The Atlas of the Creation is an odd book. It is a sumptuous work. The Atlas of the Creation, edited last December in Turkey, is made up of 770 richly illustrated pages. Several thousand color photographs of animal fossils give the volume the appearance of a work of popular science designed for children. Over the past several days, hundreds of French educational establishments recieved 10,000 free copies of the book.
