Evolution and Islam

Welcome to the Evolution and Islam website.

This website explores the reception of biological evolution in the Muslim world and its relationship to science and religion debates elsewhere in the world. The website is intended to be a collection point for current research and a resource for scholars and the public. Consistent with the diversity of the Islamic world, Muslims hold a variety of opinions regarding biological evolution. These opinions are shaped by cultural, political and social factors, as well as interpretations of religious texts and teachings. This website brings together the perspectives from history & philosophy of science, sociology, science education, religious studies and biology.

In addition, we have provided here links to science & religion activities taking place at Hampshire College. For example, for the past several years, we have been running a lecture series on topics related to science & religion, and you can find information about upcoming lectures and videos of past lectures on our official lecture website.
