The Extinction of Evolution?

Assalaamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
Another day, and yet another ‘theory’ of how we ‘evolved’ makes the headlines and promises to tell us all how it really happened.
This time it’s big – apparently, the first life on earth appeared on the earth 400 billion or so years it was originally thought…..

Assalamu-Alaykum – Peace be Upon you
