Submission + - Muslim Medical Students Boycott Darwin Lectures (dailymail.co.uk)

Readycharged writes: "The Daily Mail reports on a piece from The Sunday Times revealing that University College London have seen an increasing number of Muslim students boycotting lectures on Evolution due to clashes with the Koran.

Steve Jones, Emeritus Professor of Human Genetics, says, "I've had one or two slightly frisky discussions with kids who belonged to fundamentalist Christian churches, now it's Islamic overwhelmingly."

He adds, "'What they object to — and I don't really understand it, I am not religious — they object to the idea that there is a random process out there which is not directed by God."

The article also reveals that Evolutionary Biologist and former Oxford Professor Richard Dawkins also experienced Muslim walking out of such lectures."
