The religious “clerics” or “representatives” in our time have failed miserably when it comes to confronting modern scientific facts like Evolution. This includes popular Islamic figures like Dr. Zakir Naik, Yasir Qadhi, Abdur Raheem Green, Suboor Ahmed, Sistani, and the list just goes on. The same story goes with religious clerics from various other religions.
Most simply reject evolution, some accept parts of it, while some try to reconcile between evolution and religion with certain exceptions like the creation of Adam, etc. Their statements are available online easily.
The fact is, all such interpretations are completely in conflict with evolution. You can either accept it or reject it. There is no middle ground. The state of people who do not accept evolution is like that of the people who said that the sun revolves around the earth in the past.
That being said, it doesn’t mean that there is no way in which science and religious beliefs can co-exist without any conflict. Ahmed Al-Hasan, the author of the book ‘The Atheism Delusion’, addresses this in his original work. He discusses the common misconceptions that the prominent religious clerics have for established scientific findings like Evolution. At the same time, the book covers the way out for the religious beliefs to still co-exist with such findings without any conflict.
The book also contains responses to the arguments in support of atheism by avowed atheists like Richard Dawkins, Stephen Hawking, and Lawrence Krauss. There is also a section on whether the existence of God can be proved.

Unfortunately, most of the clerics of the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, and Islam) have taken the same stance toward Darwin’s theory as they did with his predecessor, Galileo. As time passed, Galileo’s theory of Earth’s orbit ended with a heartbreaking tragedy for the clerics who had fought it and shed the scientists’ blood. Evidence of Earth’s orbit continued to accumulate, and it ended with images of Earth rotating in space. Similarly now, the time has passed, and scientific evidence of evolution (such as genetics) has accumulated to such an extent that denial of evolution is just foolish and contemptible stubbornness. However, many clerics continue to rely on the ignorance of the people who listen to and follow them.
My advice to whoever rejects the theory of evolution and says that it conflicts with the religious text is to examine the theory of evolution and try to understand it, and to change their incorrect opinion, because, by God, it exposes their ignorance and puts them in extremely weak and unenviable positions. If only they would comprehend.
Dr. Dawkins said:
I quite like the idea that people are being taught in their churches that evolution is incompatible with God because we absolutely can demonstrate that evolution is a fact. 
In other words, Dr. Dawkins is saying to the likes of Kamal al-Haydari, who assert that the theory of evolution conflicts with the Quran or religion, that they are giving atheism the greatest free gift for invalidating the Quran and religion. Because simply, evolutionary biologists can prove that the theory of evolution is true and correct with clear evidence.
I really like the fact that he has released this book for free to spread knowledge and awareness among the people.
Have a good read!
