The world is paying highest tribute on the bicentenary of Charles Darwin’s birth on Feb12, 1809 on the ground that his work was an enormous advancement to the development of science especially in the last 150 years since the publication of his book On the Origin of Species in 1859. Charles Darwin wrote how each new species has arisen by descending with modification from an ancestral species due to natural selection. But Saint Vallalar has declared that god is only the cause for the creation of this universe and he is the cause for the lives inhabiting the universe. Unlike the scientists who have held that the relative universe has got its origin from a singularity which in their opinion was the big bang, Vallalar has held that the singularity is the Almighty itself. Arut Perunjothi Agaval of the Saint written in 1872 is the greatest scientific treatise of the origin of this universe and the cosmic design which govern the lives of all beings. It is manifest from there that the universal life was not projected from any singularity outside the Almighty and it is not a simple evolution through mere chemical reactions and physical processes engineered by nature but consciously designed by the divine will.
