SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Hello I'm a 1st year medical student in the US who is interested in Islam but could use some help. One of the questions I had about the religion was its stance on evolution. I understand that Islam is pretty compatible with the idea that life on earth was evolved over time...but that when you get to the concept of humans things get trickier. I am asking here because I find its very hard to find a real scientific opinion from Muslims on the topic. Many of the opinions I read online are written by Islamic scholars that do not have a good understanding of evolution. I'm wondering how you guys feel when (if) the topic is brought up in your medical education. For example, in class we were discussing the similarities between a humans arm and a fish's fin. I mean these are real similarities that can't just be dismissed. Any advice on how you, as a Muslim and as a student doctor, "deal" with the theory of evolution would be appreciated. Thanks!
