He does this in a scientific way, presenting evidence for creation instead of only refuting evolution without firm evidence creation. While making a case for creation, he also emphasized on the prebiotic soup theory, pointing out major faults at the very base of the argument. Rana made solid arguments for creation and against evolution, but also held a balanced view over both by considering evolution as a real possibility, of course, siding with creation when the evidence was studied.
