Darwinist publications recently and again collectively carried headline pictures of a very interesting-looking life form. This odd creature in the imaginary picture below was heralded to the entire world as a “third species.” The newspapers produced striking captions to support Darwinist claims such as “An unknown hominin!” “A great discovery, neither Neanderthal nor Homo sapiens” and “A Development That Will Re-write the History of Humanity...” Then under these they placed the following picture:
The only source of this picture and the shock propaganda surrounding it WAS A SINGLE FOSSIL FINGER BONE.
Darwinists, who previously produced images of the imaginary Nebraska Man, based on a single pig tooth, together with his family and in a social environment, and who claimed that this shed great light on the supposed evolution of man, have now gone so far in 2010, when the collapse of Darwinism has now been openly declared, as to produce a whole life story on the basis of a young child’s pinky finger, and even to herald it as a third species.
Another example of Darwinists’ Helpless Scenario
Darwinists’ sole justification for resorting to this tale is the fact that this 40,000-year-old fossil was discovered in a cave in the Altai Mountains of Siberia, Asia. This fossil, which they claimed came from Africa to Asia, seems to have come from a different lineage according to the results of an analysis of mitochondrial DNA, the details of which are set out below, but this conflicts with the fictitious scenario on which Darwinists base their ideas of migration out of Africa. For years, Darwinists have been trying to provide some kind of logical framework, in their own eyes at least, for their tale of the human species they refer to as the Neanderthals and Homo sapiens migrating out of Africa into Asia, which tale keeps being refuted by excavated fossils, and the sudden appearance of a different human race has come as a huge shock to them. That is why they refer to this fossil as a “third human species”.
This scenario, the product of a single finger bone, is a weak one that not even a child would believe. But since the report in question was couched in such an astonishing seriousness in all Darwinist publications and dressed up with a variety of scientific terms that it will be advantageous to set out the true scientific evidence demonstrating the invalidity of this illogical claim.
The Irrational Pretext Depicted As Evidence for the Third Species: Mitochondrial DNA Analysis:
Darwinists have again resorted to scientific deception in order to depict a single pinky finger bone as the basis for this tale of a third species. Special terminology was employed in the publications concerned in order to deceive people into thinking the claim was backed up by genetic, and therefore scientific, evidence.
First and foremost, in order to attain an organism’s genetic information, we need to have the DNA in its cells. But we know nothing about the DNA of the life form in question. And without its DNA, it is impossible for us to obtain any information such as what it looked like or its anatomical structure. Indeed, the National Geographic web site, on which the report was published, explicitly stated that it was impossible to talk about the skeletal structure, musculature, brainpower, or appearance, in short about any characteristics of this life form.1
The sole source of all the fuss about the fossil in question is Darwinists’ baseless claims to have obtained this life form’s mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA). In contrast to the main DNA in the cell, mitochondrial DNA is DNA in the mitochondria and that belongs to the mitochondria alone. Consequently, it is impossible to obtain an organism’s genetic information or physical characteristics through mtDNA analysis. Darwinists think that they can determine the forebears of a life form by means of mtDNA analysis. The Darwinist claim is that by this technique it is possible to determine that this living thing comes from a different lineage and is a new species that left Africa and came to Asia 40,000 years ago, and that mtDNA analysis can determine its forebears in a more comprehensive manner. Both content and technique are illusory, however.
For many years, Darwinists claimed that the mitochondrion, an organelle with its own DNA and responsible for producing energy in the cell, was transmitted by the mother alone, and that changes in mitochondrial DNA components could be followed from mother, to grandmother to great-grandmother and thus back to the very earliest forebear. They claimed that a single branch of a family line could be followed directly on the basis of mtDNA analysis and that the starting point of the first mythical hominid could thus be established.
But the Darwinists’ claims about mtDNA were totally refuted by two scientific studies, the first in 1999, the second in 2002.
Scientific Evidence That Denies Darwinists' mtDNA claims
Two reports in Proceedings of the Royal Society on 7, March 1999 has shown that this Darwinist assumptions about mtDNA is unwarranted. It was discovered that population of a tiny Melanesian island possessed mitochondria in their cells inherited from theirfathers. Nature, despite being a Darwinist magazine, confessed that these findings have overturned the mtDNA assumptions.“2
A similar report was published on New Scientist magazine website and it was revealed that ninety percent of the mitochondria of a Danish patient came from his father. In the same report, regarding the blow to the evolutionist biologists’ assumptions, it is stated that, “Even if paternal DNA is inherited rarely, it could invalidate many of their findings.”3
Most recently, an article in the journal Annals of Human Genetics reported that all the mitochondrial databases published to date and on which Darwinists relied had been inaccurately processed.4 (You can access the details of the information about mitochondrial DNA here.)
As we have seen, the general belief concerning mtDNA has been refuted by research conducted over the last 10 years in particular. But Darwinists insist on disregarding this report, which appeared in the best-known Darwinist scientific journals and still try to impose their claims about a supposed common forebear on the basis of mtDNA analysis.
Therefore, the definition of a “third species” on the basis of mtDNA analysis applied to the finger is completely deceptive.
Why Are Darwinists So Alarmed by a Different Line?
There is only one answer to this question: Darwinists have produced myths on the basis of an utterly fictitious scenario. In their view, fictitious hominids descended from a fictitious common ancestor emerged over various periods of time, with only Homo sapiens coming down to today. Darwinists have been unable to prove a single one of their claims, and a new branch that would overturn all their accounts represents a new dead-end and a new difficulty for them.
The real facts about this discovery are as follows: The pinky finger fossil discovered belongs to a human being. That human being is the same as man living today. In the same way there are different human races in the world today – Eskimos, negroes, Anglo-Saxons, Caucasians etc. – so there were different races in those times. This life form represents one of the races alive at that time. The ornaments found beside the fossil in question, such as a bracelet, clearly show that these life forms had the same concept of decoration and beauty 40,000 years ago that we have today. Johannes Krause from the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology in Leipzig, Germany, who conducted research into the fossil, made the following statement about the findings to BBC News:
"We have ornaments, there is a bracelet, so there are several elements in the layers that are usually associated with modern human archaeology."5
The Neanderthals are in fact one of these human races. They are not primitive in the way that Darwinists maintain. They are no different to human races today. The sole basis for the speculation about them is that they are extinct. In the same way that extinct species of ape are constantly used as tools of Darwinist propaganda, so this race is also made the constant subject of Darwinist deception because of its being extinct.
You can read our replies concerning the invalidity of the Darwinist deceptions regarding the Neanderthals here and here.
Flores Man, also used as evidence for the idea of different human races in these reports, and which is still the subject of speculation despite having been refuted countless times by the scientific evidence, and despite this actually having been announced in Darwinist references, was also brought up. Today the scientific world knows that Flores Man is a human species suffering from disease. You can read our response to the claim in question here.
Darwinists, Who Are Unable to Account for Mitochondria, DNA Or a Single Protein in DNA, and Their Hopeless Speculation
It will here be beneficial to recall a most important fact about the Darwinists left helpless in the wake of all these scientific statements refuting their deceptions and who made such a furor about a single fossil pinky finger: Darwinists ARE UNABLE TO ACCOUNT FOR A SINGLE PROTEIN IN THE DNA IN the mitochondria inside that fossilized finger.
How is it that people who are left so helpless in the face of a single protein, and unable to back up their scenarios about the beginning of life, can still speculate about human species, produce a picture of a human being on the basis of a single fossil pinky finger and come up with stories that are so illogical they would make a child laugh? This analysis made on the basis of a single pinky finger fossil is so astonishing that it would normally be utterly humiliating to espouse such a claim. But the Darwinist indoctrination that has deceived the world for the last 150 years has now legitimized such illogicalities in their own eyes. Darwinists, who for years,
- Have maintained that the first cell formed spontaneously in muddy water, even though they could not produce a single protein in the laboratory,
- Claimed that all species turned into one another as a result of random mutations, despite knowing full well that it is impossible to add genetic information and that mutations are fatal,
- Regarded apes (or, according to their latest claims, an odd creature representing the forerunner of the ape) as their ancestors
- And who ascribe all the glorious diversity of life on earth and the astonishing complexity at the molecular level to CHANCE alone,
can still claim such illogicalities. This tale is related in a quite matter of fact manner in the world’s best-known magazines and on web sites and by very eminent scientists. These professors hold conferences on the subject and shamelessly look people in the eye as they relate this unbelievable nonsense. They have no qualms about showing them the shameful pictures of human beings they produce from a single finger fossil.
It is Sufficient to ask Darwinists to account for the formation of a single protein in order to eradicate Darwinist claims
When Darwinists stand up and use such illogical accounts as a propaganda tool it will be appropriate to ask them to account for the formation of a single protein. Since evolution is a lie, all Darwinist claims are of course refuted immediately in great detail by the scientific evidence, as we have seen above. But what really demolished everything to do with evolution, the thing that completely silences Darwinists, is their inability to account for a single protein.
Darwinists no longer have the field all to themselves. Scientific evidence will always be brought forward to confound every new tale they come up with. They will always be reminded how a single protein demolishes their theories. Some people, lacking sufficient knowledge on the subject, may mistakenly think that Darwinists will be able to account for proteins in the future. Every new discovery made regarding proteins shows that their structure is unimaginably complex and possesses an order and discipline that far exceeds human abilities. Therefore, every new finding deals a new lethal blow to Darwinism. Time and science constantly work against Darwinism.
Darwinist trickery can never prevail. Because this is the law of Almighty Allah. This false theory will be condemned to a huge disappointment and failure across the world. Our Lord shows us the evidence of this collapse in countless and magnificent forms. The destiny created by Almighty Allah will manifest itself in the finest manner.
Yes, everything in the heavens and earth belongs to Allah. Yes, Allah’s promise is true but most of them do not know it. (Surah Yunus, 55)
Saturday, March 6, 2010
There is not one single piece of evidence for Darwinism. For that reason, for the last 150 years Darwinists have used a different technique to providing evidence; clamor and demagoguery.
- Darwinists resort to all possible means to cover up the fact that the theory of evolution is a deception. Academics and scientists questioning evolution and espousing anti-Darwinian views are hurriedly removed from their posts and silenced.
- They attempt to portray the fraud of Darwinism as a highly complex scientific reality. They try to deceive people with complicated formulae and unintelligible terminology. They take advantage of science and people’s respect for it, even though there is nothing scientific to the theory whatsoever.
- They engage in loud and long demagoguery and resort to charlatanry instead of giving scientific responses to people holding other views. Since they are unable to provide any real scientific evidence at all, they imagine that they can invalidate the definitive proofs of Creation by making so-called jokes and using a mocking, improper tone. They imagine they will thus be able to deceive people, even though the evidence is plain for everyone to see.
- They try to prevent people thinking and investigating the true facts. They imagine that only in this way can they prevent the fraudulent nature of Darwinism being exposed. They try to prevent people thinking by means of demagogic accounts and complicated, incomprehensible articles adorned with grotesque-looking formulae.
- Some foreign pro-Darwinist publications are the best example of this. None of these can ever say, “Yes, there are 100 million fossils that prove Creation, and we rebut these in any way.” They never mention the amber containing organisms exactly as they were millions of years ago. They never raise these issues because they know only too well that they all totally refute Darwinism. They merely resort to plenty of unintelligible demagoguery of no scientific value.
- They apply pressure to ensure that students holding anti-Darwinist views are expelled from their schools. For example, in a report on the subject in the British weekly The Observer, Darwinist scientists are reported to say that “if religion stops their students accepting evolution, there is no point in them staying at university.” This is a clear statement from the mouths of Darwinists regarding the Darwinist technique of menaces and intimidation.
- One of the demagogic techniques most frequently employed by Darwinists is the claim that the financing for Harun Yahya’s matchless works that have stunned the whole world comes from outside Turkey. A report that recently appeared in The Observer claimed that the activities in question were backed from Saudi Arabia. Yet it is quite evident that Saudi Arabia attaches no importance to the subject of evolution and that the state has no anti-evolutionary policy. If the Saudi Arabian administration really wanted to engage in anti-evolutionary activity there is no doubt that it would not do this in Turkey. That would be meaningless. The Saudi government has sufficient money and resources to carry out wide-ranging activities in its own country. The demagoguery that Darwinists engage in on this subject is highly illogical and utterly ludicrous.
- It was also suggested in the same paper that poor schools in Turkey were grateful for Harun Yahya’s books. This is another demagogic technique. Harun Yahya’s books are read right across the world because they are of scientific value and make the true facts crystal clear. It is wealthy European countries and America that read these books the most. People buy and like these books because they tell the truth. But Darwinists are unable to swallow this.
- Another aspect of the same demagoguery is the claim that Darwinist scientists are afraid to speak out. In fact these scientists have no fear at all of speaking to the proponents of Creation. Their fear lies in having no evidence in favor of Darwinism despite all the millions of proofs of Creation. There is no reason why they should not take part in debates of this kind if they did have any scientific evidence of their own. They are unable to respond to the 100 million fossils that prove the fact of Creation, and are unable to admit that proteins cannot form by chance. They know that they will be faced with clear and incontrovertible scientific facts during the course of any debate. And they have no answers to them.
- The Council of Europe’s attempt to have the teaching of the Atlas of Creation in schools banned, also described in The Observer, is one of Darwinists’ best-known so-called intimidatory techniques. They imagine than banning books will stop people accessing the scientific facts. The fact is, however, that permitting no alternative view to the one-sided teaching of Darwinism in schools is a disgrace to Darwinists themselves. Fascism is still taught as an opposing view in schools of philosophy that teach communism. Alternative theories to the Big Bang are still taught regarding the formation of the universe. The situation in this example is even more terrible, because Creation is a fact proved by scientific evidence, whereas Darwinism is just nonsense.
If Darwinists had the evidence to prove their theory, and if they genuinely believed that their theory was true, then they would very definitely feel no need to resort to demagoguery, to try to hide the evidence for Creation, and to attempt to intimidate scientists and other proponents of Creation. The main reason for Darwinists’ banning books, mockery, long demagogic accounts and unwillingness to engage in debates is that Darwinism is terrible nonsense that has deceived the world for the last 150 years.
But all these measures, clamor and demagoguery have come to an end now that the existence of 100 million fossils supporting Creation has been made public. People have now seen the daylight. And there is no point in trying to tell them it is still dark outside. The scientific facts are in front of everyone’s eyes. The Darwinist lie has been unmasked. From now on, by the will of Allah (God), Darwinists will always be defeated no matter what demagoguery they resort to.
Darwinism is such terrible a lie that,
- For 150 years it convinced people that living things had evolved.
- It convinced people they were descended from ape-likes.
- The theory was treated as a scientific one, even though it possessed not a shred of scientific evidence.
- Efforts were made to give the impression that intermediate forms existed, though not a single one has ever been found.
- Although not a single protein has ever been manufactured in the laboratory, the diversity of life was still ascribed to chance.
- All of humanity was indoctrinated with the lie that unconscious, uncontrolled, inanimate atoms combined together in a random manner and gave rise to states, civilisations and scientists who examine their own cells in the laboratory.
- In doing all this, of course, it used only lies, fraud and demagoguery.
Darwinism is such a terrible lie that the proponents of this ideology had no hesitation over producing hoax fossils and exhibiting these for 40 years. Darwinists have made a habit of resorting to fraud in order to invent intermediate fossils. They have no reluctance over taking fossils of perfect living things and using them to invent a whole evolutionary scenario. They have countless scenarios about the imaginary first cell, but they are unable to account for the emergence of even one of that imaginary cell’s thousands of proteins. They say that mutations cause evolution, but they have been unable to endow a single living thing with any advantageous trait by way of mutation even in the controlled laboratory environment.
For that reason, they have sought a solution in fraud. Helpless in the face of the fossil record’s failure to support their theory, Darwinists have taken fossils belonging to flawless life forms and interpreted them according to their own desires, and have even resorted to blatant fraud.
They manufactured the Piltdown Man hoax, exhibited for 40 years, by adding the jaw bone of a recently deceased orang utan to a human skull, and the Nebraska Man fraud by producing representations of him and his supposed family on the basis of a single boar’s tooth. They have engaged in propaganda to the effect that natural selection causes evolution, by adding feathers to dinosaur fossils or pinning peppered moths to the trunks of trees. For years, the portrayed the Coelacanth as an intermediate form, and were surprised when it transpired that the creature was still alive today. They came up with an imaginary “scenario of equine evolution,” although horse fossils dating back 53 million years were identical to horses alive today, but eventually had to confess that this, too, was a fraud.
They tried to use hoax embryo drawings to explain the supposed evolution of man. But they then had to retract that false scenario when Haeckel, the author of the drawings, admitted that “many hoaxes had been perpetrated in the name of the theory of evolution, and that he therefore had no compunctions about doing so.”
In short, Darwinism is a lie. EVOLUTIONISTS FEEL THE NECESSITY TO CONCEAL FOSSILS because their hoaxes have constantly been exposed, and because all genuine fossils refute evolution.
Darwinists Hastily Hide away a Fossil the Moment They Find It, As They Did with Cambrian Fossils
Fossils are one of the main forms of evidence to refute evolution. One hundred million fossils unearthed from the various strata of the earth and revealing that living things remain unchanged since the moment of their first creation represent an insoluble dilemma for evolutionists. The fact that each one of the fossils they should have used to verify their own theory in reality confirmed the truth of Creation lead Darwinists to hide fossils away. They were unwilling for people to see and know about them. They did this a great deal in the past and are still doing it today. They spend hours, many pages, talking about the false demagoguery of evolution. Yet to date they have said not a word about the one hundred million fossils that currently exist. Millions of fossils have been unearthed as a result of a constant stream of excavations all over the world. But there are no museums in which Darwinists exhibit these. They have never put them on display. We know that millions of fossils have been unearthed, but they are nowhere to be seen. And this is a Darwinist strategy used all the time.
One of the most significant examples of this is the fossils discovered in Canada’s Burgess Shale region in 1909 by the palaeontologist Charles Doolittle Walcott. He was quick to hide these perfect fossils, the result of 4 years of excavations and some 530 million years old, away.
The reason is that the 530-million-year-old fossils in question definitively refute and eliminate evolution. These fossils belong to a time known as the Cambrian Period. Yet according to evolutionists that was a time when nothing should have been alive apart from single-celled life forms, or a few multi-celled ones devoid of complex, basic structures. According to the myth of evolution, it was impossible for there to be anything else.
But these Cambrian Period fossils were the harbingers of doom for evolutionists. The fossils in question reveal that life forms from that time had the same complexity as living things today, and declare that the present variety of life, and even a greater variety, emerged all of a sudden. Moreover, no fictitious, primitive forerunner showing that these life forms were descended from others ever existed. These fossils exhibit a perfect complexity at a time when, according to evolutionists, living things were in a completely primitive state, and loudly declare that living things were created in a single moment, with the appearances they still possess today. This tolls the death knell of Darwinism and spells its total collapse. Darwinists have a habit of resorting to demagoguery on subjects they are unable to explain, but it is impossible for them to say anything at all about the variety of life that emerged 530 years ago.
Indeed, as the late Harvard palaeontologist Stephen Jay Gould has said, the fossil record, and Cambrian fossils in particular, was Darwin’s greatest worry:
That explains why Walcott, a dyed-in-the-wool evolutionist, RESORTED TO HIDING THE FOSSILS AWAY.
These magnificent Cambrian fossils WERE CONCEALED FOR 70 YEARS.
The Burgess Shale fossils only emerged into the light of day in 1985, when the museum archives were re-examined. The Israeli scientist Gerald Schroeder makes this comment on the subject:
The Parrot Fossil Concealed for 40 Years
The concealment of the Cambrian fossils was no isolated event. Hiding fossils is a Darwinist tradition. A 65-million-year-old parrot jaw fossil was hidden from the public gaze for many years because it reveals that parrots are living fossils that have remained unaltered for millions of years and thus invalidates the theory of evolution. That was the state of affairs until one researcher, a University of California, Berkeley graduate by the name of Thomas Stidham, decided to investigate the fossil collection in the Berkeley Paleontological Museum. Subsequent analysis of the fossil revealed that it represented the oldest-known parrot fossil to date and was contemporaneous with the dinosaurs. X-ray scans of the 13-cm fossil showed that a “K”-shaped feature on the fossil (constituting blood vessel and nerve pathways) is identical to that in modern-day parrots. Darwinists resorted to HIDING THE FOSSIL AWAY FOR 40 YEARS in order to conceal that fact.
100 Million Fossils Unknown Fossils
The Darwinist tactic of hiding fossils away continues in great secrecy even today. Most people are unaware that to date more than 100 million fossils have been unearthed across the globe. Specimens known as living fossils that reveal that life forms have never changed even over millions of years were hidden away by Darwinists for many long years, with only a few examples ever reaching the public gaze. That explains why people scanning scientific publications or the internet only encountered these few, well-known examples in their search for living fossils: there was a Ginkgo leaf, a nautilus, an okapi… For years, just about everyone imagined that the world contained just a few examples of living fossils and these were very seldom in any way surprising. They had no idea that that there were millions of living fossils, comprised of just about all life forms, wolves, horses, rabbits, turtles, and almost all species of fish, bird and reptile.
The sole reason for this is that Darwinists have kept these 100 million fossils carefully hidden away.
Why Do Darwinists Feel the Need to Conceal Fossils?
Because fossils refute evolution. The fossil record contains not a single intermediate form fossil. The entire existing fossil record, 100 million specimens, consists of perfect-looking, complete and flawless life forms. Living fossils comprise a very significant part of these 100 million fossils. The unearthing of just a few of these, even just 4 or 5, would sound the death knoll of the theory of evolution. That is why Darwinists have panicked when confronted by 100 million fossils.
In the same way that they felt they had to hide away the glorious living fossils from the Cambrian Period for 70 years, they are now trying to keep this magnificent collection that totally refutes evolution from being seen.
That is why Darwinists have made such great efforts to keep the fossil record covered up. The theory of evolution is totally discredited in the face of these 100 million fossils. And it is the Atlas of Creationthat has announced this. The Atlas of Creation has told the whole world of the existence of 100 million sublime-looking living fossils, just when Darwinists were least expecting it.
The Atlas of Creation: The Re-action Darwinists Never Expected
The Atlas of Creation has neutralised the Darwinist strategy. People have suddenly learned that there are more than 100 million fossils in the world and that not one is a transitional form of the kind that might verify evolution. This reality, that they were so keen to keep concealed, has now been put on public display, with full illustrations, and even in fossil exhibitions. People have seen and touched them. All these 100 million fossils are perfect, and all prove the fact of Creation. Some belong to perfect and extinct life forms, and most are living fossils. Darwinists found themselves confronted by the Atlas of Creation when they were least expecting it. People have been given full details of the proofs of Creation. Thus the Darwinists’ attempts to conceal these fossils for so many years has finally exploded in their faces.
The whole world is now aware of the invalidity of evolution. Presidents make unequivocal references to it. The entire world says it now believes in God, with 90% of people in polls conducted on well-known web sites saying they believe that God created living things. The theory of evolution, which was adopted officially in the whole world and protected by national laws, has suddenly become a questionable theory devoid of any evidence, and states are making considerable attempts to have it removed from the school curriculum. That is the result of fossils that had been carefully concealed finally emerging into the light of day.
The fake Darwinist success of the last 150 years or so, obtained through deception, fraud and the concealment of evidence refuting evolution, has suddenly turned to ashes. Darwinists have suffered a shock defeat, just when they thought that they had the whole world in their grasp and had turned their theory into an immutable law. This is a re-action, expected by Muslims and occurring at a time of God’s choosing. Because God has promised Muslims that He will eliminate falsehood and consolidate the truth.
A 165-million-year-old fossil spider discovered in the Daohugou region of Northern China is one of the oldest fossil spider specimens found to date. Another noteworthy characteristic of this fossil is that, as can be seen in the picture, it is perfectly preserved. Paul Selden, a paleontologist from the University of Kansas, says, “The level of detail preserved in the fossils is amazing.” (Archeology Daily News)
As shown in the picture, this spider that lived 165 million years ago possessed all the features of those living today. Having remained unchanged for millions of years, spiders represent a huge dead-end for the theory of evolution. Spiders always appear with the same characteristics in the fossil record, and are one of the proofs that living things never evolved. The spider in the picture below is 165 million years old, and there is no difference between it and present-day spiders.

THE COELACANTH THAT EVOLUTIONISTS CLAIM AS A TRANSITIONAL FORM IS LIVING IN THE SEAS AS A PERFECT LIFE FORM
"If I'd met a dinosaur in the street I wouldn't have been more astonished." (Jean-Jacques Hublin, The Hamlyn Encyclopædia of Prehistoric Animals, New York: The Hamlyn Publishing Group Ltd., 1984, p. 120)
According to fossils, fish emerged some 470 million years ago. The Cœlacanth emerged 60 million years after that. It is astonishing that this creature, which would be expected to possess very primitive features, actually has a most complex structure.
