2012 is shaping up to be a BAD year for atheism and evolutionism! Great new charts and developments!

On December 26, 2011, we said we wanted to help make 2012 the worst year in the history of Darwinism. Is there any proof and evidence that 2012 is shaping up to be the worst year in the history of Darwinism and atheism? Yes, there is! You have come to the right place!

We have some exciting news concerning a key creation vs. evolution battleground area of the United States plus some additional charts to share with you.

Charts indicating that atheism is heading for trouble in the USA in 2012

As can be seen in the upper graphs of the Google Trends graphs below, people are showing less and less and less interest in atheism and prominent atheists in the first part of 2012 especially beginning in April:

Everything is big in Texas - especially grassroots anti-evolution campaigns!

Today we spoke to a key Texas opponent of Darwinism who has examined the Question Evolution! Campaign. The call went extremely well! In June of 2012, we will begin working on spreading the campaign in 3 key areas of Texas initially and then spreading the campaign throughout the state. Yippie-yi-yo-ki-yay! Move over little Texas evolutionist doggies, big ole' Question evolution! dog movin' in!

We have a list of 500 Texas churches and their contact information which we will be using in this second phase of Texas outreach.

As we indicated in an earlier post, Texas is a key state when it comes to buying science textbooks for schools because they buy so many and have a significant effect on the United States textbook market. See our previous post: Reporting on the initial phase of our Question Evolution! Campaign group's outreach for Texas

Texas Christians and Christians throughout the world, it time to run evolutionism out of your community!

Help spread the word about the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists and watch the decline of world interest in the shallow foolishness of Darwinism and atheism accelerate!

How stale and boring is evolutionary indoctrination? Is the public fooled or are they suspicious? What is the trend?

Is the public tiring of hearing evolutionary bunk? How stale and boring is evolutionary bunk and evobabble? Is there a way to measure it? Can we see how much public interest in evolutionism has waned in the last 7 years?

You are going to be amazed on how boring Darwinism nonsense truly is!

Does the public want a change?

The year 2009 was the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth and it also was the 150th anniversary of the publication of his racist work On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life.

An October 27, 2009 article entitled The More They Know Darwin, The Less They Want Darwin-Only Indoctrination declared:
According to an international poll released by the British Council, the majority of Americans -- 60% -- support teaching alternatives to evolution in the science classroom. The percentage is the same for Britons, despite the fact that both countries have been inundated with pro-Darwin media coverage in this super-mega Darwin Year.

Of course, the British media reporting this are chagrined. Britain is the birthplace of Charles Darwin and his theory of evolution, and the official-sounding British Council, the UK group behind the "Darwin Now" campaign that commissioned the Ipsos MORI poll, have spent precious resources educating the world about Darwin. Now some believe the poll shows that efforts by Darwinist organizations aren't working.

Clearly many in the public are suspicious of the lies of Darwinists and believe something is amiss. Since the Scripture declares that the beauty. majesty and design of creation testifies to the existence of God, this is hardly surprising (Romans 1:18-22, Psalm 19:1-4).

Is atheism insipid and boring? Does it make people's eyes glaze over?

Since World War II a majority of the most prominent defenders of the evolutionary position which uses methodological naturalism have been atheists. This is the type of evolutionism promoted in public schools.

A few relevant quotes about atheism:

"Among the repulsions of atheism for me has been its drastic un-interestingness as an intellectual position. Where was the ingenuity, the ambiguity, the humanity of saying that the universe just happened to happen and that when we're dead we're dead?" - John Updike

"I have a fundamental belief in the Bible as the Word of God, written by men who were inspired. I study the Bible daily. Opposition to godliness is atheism in profession and idolatry in practice. Atheism is so senseless and odious to mankind that it never had many professors." - Sir Isaac Newton

Google trends for the search evolution

As can be seen in the upper graph of the Google Trends graphs below, people are showing less and less and less interest in "evolution" during the period from 2004-2011:


As you can see in the upper graph of Google Trends graphs above, the public is showing less and less interest in evolution.

Peruvian Christian is performing additional Spanish translating for Question Evolution! Campaign

A Peruvian Christian by the name of Rafael has graciously volunteered to further translate the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists into Spanish plus he thinks he may find others to assist him. In a previous post, we wrote about the explosive growth of Christianity around the globe and Rafael and his fellow Peruvian Christians are living testimony of this fact.

Currently, the main 15 questions for evolutionists page has been translated into Spanish, but the various resources it links to have not yet been translated. For example, below each of the 15 questions for evolutionists, there needs to a link to a web page which further explains the importance of that question. You can see that being done on the English version of the 15 questions for evolutionists web page. It is important to educate people so they can explain to other people why Darwinism is wrongheaded.

Translating the campaign into Spanish will make the campaign accessible to Spanish speaking evangelicals in the Americas

Translating the campaign into Spanish, particularly for individuals in the Americas is very important.

Consider this:

A Canadian Christian news article reported:

Paul Charles Freston, a senior researcher at Baylor University and professor at the Federal University of Sao Carlos, Sao Paulo, predicted that Protestantism would eventually comprise 20 to 35 percent of the population in Latin America, the Latin America and Caribbean Communication Agency reported.

Also, it is estimated that there are 10 million hispanic evangelicals in the United States and the number of American hispanic evangelicals is growing.

Internet atheism: The thrill is gone!

Has internet atheism shown a big decline in market share? Is internet atheism losing to Christianity?

Consider these two questions:

1. Has the market share of leading atheist websites plunged in the last 5 years and in 2012?

2. Is global atheism/agnosticism declining and expected to decline in an accelerated fashion?

Before we provide some exciting data/graphs concerning internet atheism and skepticism, we first want to give you some relevant background information.

On March 19, 2011, we did a post entitled Globally the worldviews of atheism and non-religious (agnostic) are declining while global Christianity is exploding in adherents which indicated that each day there are now 800 less atheists in world, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostics) in the world and 83,000 additional people professing to be Christians. In that post not only did we indicate that atheism/skepticism are declining in the world, but the trend is expected to increase at an accelerated rate.

Is 2012 on its way to be the Worst Year in the History of Darwinism?

On December of 2012, we posted an article at this entitled Making 2012 the Worst Year in the History of Darwinism in which we said that we wanted to make 2012 the worst year in the history of Darwinism. Also, anyone who has followed the creation vs. evolution debate does not find it surprising that post World War II, the most ardent and vocal proponents of evolutionary belief have been atheists/agnostics.

But so far, how are things going for atheism/evolutionism in 2012?

Internet atheism has taken a fall in the last 5 years and in 2012

In 2007, the Bible believer Chuck Norris noted that atheists were making a concerted effort to spread atheism via the internet. As you you will soon see via the graphs below, it has been an abysmal failure! The atheist community flooded the internet with a lot of shallow, ill-reasoned fluff that many in the public quickly dismissed.

Atheists, you forgot one of the most important rules of Business 101: When you have a bad product, increasing the advertising budget is not going to make it a long term success! And atheism is definitely an errant worldview - see the web resources: Atheism and Atheism and skepticism - Questions and Answers

QUESTION: How is internet atheism/skepticism doing on the internet in the last 5 years and in 2012 according to leading web traffic firms?

Web traffic data on leading atheist and skepticism websites

Here are some web traffic graphs from leading atheists websites taken from the leading website web traffic companies of Alexa, Quantcast and Compete:

Ineffectiveness of internet atheists PZ Myers, Thunderf00t and others

Of course, the ineffectiveness of the agnosticism and evolutionism apologist Richard Dawkins can also be said of internet atheism apologists such as PZ Myers, Thunderf00t, TheAmazingAtheists and others. The big losses in internet traffic of leading atheism websites in recent years is not surprising since they often repeat the same inane and ineffective atheism talking points. Babbling on about unicorns, leprechauns and Santa Claus and other atheist claptrap only goes so far. See: Internet atheism: the thrill is gone

Thunderfoot's abysmal performance with his discussion with evangelist Ray Comfort helped further demonstrate that atheism cannot withstand cross examination. The same could be said of creation scientists largely winning the public creation vs. evolution debates

It is not at all surprising that no evolutionist has come remotely close to satisfactorily answering the 15 questions for evolutionists of the Question Evolution! Campaign

Why is the year 2020 a key year for Christian creationists and pro-lifers?

Is the year  2020 a key year for Christian creationists and pro-lifers? If so, are there strong reasons and data to supporting this matter?

In addition, two additional important questions to ask are:

1. Is the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists helping Creation Ministries International reach more young people?

2. Are Question Evolution! Campaign activists taking steps to reach more young people? These are very important questions since crushing Darwinism will require reaching more young people (see our blog post Inoculating young people against Darwinism).

Consider this information from the web traffic tracking company Quantcast concerning the web traffic Creation Ministries International's website Creation.com:

Is the outreach to young people progressing?

As you can see Creation Ministries International's website traffic percentage wise is very favorable among the 18-24 age group.

We believe this is due in part to our Question Evolution! Campaign group's recent outreach to young people. In addition, our Question Evolution! Campaign group is presently working on making outreach to young people even better.

In 2012 it was reported there are 800 less atheists each day in the world

In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) reported that every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day (see: Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary - status of Global Mission report).

Global market share declining and atheistic societies and birth rates

In 2009, the book A sceptics guide to atheism indicated: "A worldwide poll taken in 1991 put the global figure for atheists at just 4.4% of the population. By 2006 it was estimated that only 2% of the world population were atheists."

Michael Blume, a researcher at the University of Jena in Germany, wrote "Most societies or communities that have espoused atheistic beliefs have not survived more than a century." Blume also indicated concerning concerning his research on this matter: "What I found was the complete lack of a single case of a secular population, community or movement that would just manage to retain replacement level."

Investigator Magazine had an interesting article published in 1990 entitled 2,000 years of Christian Increase which indicated that historically the percentage of the world population professing Christianity has been increasing.

2020 a key year for American Christians, creationists, pro-lifers and the world

Our Question Evolution!Campaign group wants to promote the 15 questions for evolutionists for the long term as we want to pave the way for some very significant things we see happening in 2020 and beyond which are expected to be very positive and significant developments for Bible believing Christians, pro-lifers and religious conservatives.

Consider this key information relating to the United States:

The Birkbeck College, University of London professor Eric Kaufmann wrote in his 2010 book Shall the Righteous Inherit the Earth? concerning America
High evangelical fertility rates more than compensated for losses to liberal Protestant sects during the twentieth century. In recent decades, white secularism has surged, but Latino and Asian religious immigration has taken up the slack, keeping secularism at bay. Across denominations, the fertility advantage of religious fundamentalists of all colours is significant and growing. After 2020, their demographic weight will begin to tip the balance in the culture wars towards the conservative side, ramping up pressure on hot-button issues such as abortion. By the end of the century, three quarters of America may be pro-life. Their activism will leap over the borders of the 'Redeemer Nation' to evangelize the world. Already, the rise of the World Congress of Families has launched a global religious right, its arms stretching across the bloody lines of the War on Terror to embrace the entire Abrahamic family.

Of course, we expect the above tipping point in America to positively affect the proliferation of biblical creationism as well - especially with the aid of the Question Evolution! Campaign.

In March of 2010, Eric Kaufmann wrote in Prospect Magazine:
More recently, conservative American Protestants have increased from a 40 per cent minority of white Protestants born in 1900 to a two-thirds majority among those born in 1975. The slight fertility advantage of conservative over liberal Protestants accounts for three-quarters of the rise.
On October 17, 2011,Chuck Warnock wrote:
 Conservative churches are growing and liberal ones declining because of a differential in the fertility rates of each group.   This demographic fact accounts for 80% of the “shifting fortunes of liberal and conservative Protestant churches” according to Chaves.  Apparently women in conservative denominations have borne an average of one more child than women in more liberal or moderate denominations.  Over several generations this difference becomes apparent and dramatic.

In 2011, the Oxford University journal Sociology of Religion published an article by Eric Kaufmann, Anne Goujon and Vegard Skirbekk entitled The End of Secularization in Europe?: A Socio-Demographic Perspective which declared:
“Silent” demographic effects can be profound in the long term. For example, Rodney Stark shows how early Christians’ favorable fertility and mortality rates when compared with Hellenistic pagans may have helped fuel a 40 percent growth rate in the Christian population of the Roman Empire over several centuries. This helped give rise to a population increase from 40 converts in 30 AD to 6 million by the year 300 leading to a “tipping point” which helped Christianity become institutionalized within the Empire (Stark 1996).
In Europe, where Darwinism is more prevalent in the world than in many countries, many of these countries had sub-replacement levels of birth.  See:  2011 European fertility rates  and  Photo: Evolution Less Accepted in U.S. Than Other Western Countries, Study Finds

In addition, Eric Kaufmann using a multitude of demographic studies argues in an academic paper entitled Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth? Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century the decline of atheism in terms of its global adherents is an established trend that will persist for the foreseeable future and the rate of decline will accelerate. In the Western World, due to immigration and the higher birth rates of religious people, Kaufman writes: "Committed religious populations are growing in the West, and will reverse the march of secularism before 2050." See also: Eric Kaufmann's website

Kaufmann told a secular audience in Australia: "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us."

Also, for those who are interested in knowing more about Professor Eric Kaufmann's work on this matter, he also published a book titled Shall the religious inherit the earth

There has never been a better time than 2012 to attack Darwinism via a grassroots campaign

As you can see, there are some powerful demographic forces lining up which are unfavorable to Darwinism in the United States and in the world. And as you can see young Christians raised in the faith are going to play an important part. Our group wants to lay the groundwork for a crushing defeat of Darwinism. That is why we are committed to helping make 2012 be the worst year in the history of Darwinism. And anyone who has read Creation Ministries International's website information on human life and abortion knows that creationists are definitely allies to the pro-life cause so this will be very helpful to the pro-life cause as well.

Never before has there been a worldwide grassroots campaign to attack Darwinism which has focused on a series of key and very powerful questions for Darwinists. I firmly believe that a grassroots approach is key to defeating Darwinism and the group of Christians that is willing to strongly advance an anti-evolution grassroots campaign will have a devastating impact on Darwinism. Such an approach can create a proliferation of creationist grassroots fires designed to burn down the forest of Darwinism. Evolutionists will be unable to stamp out these fires using their strong arm tactics which were documented in the movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed.

Furthermore, currently global atheism is shrinking in terms of adherents and it is expected to shrink at an accelerated rate due to demographic factors and other factors as well. On the other hand, global Christianity is rapidly expanding. The Question Evolution! Campaign can certainly serve as a catalyst for the continued shrinking of global atheism plus assist in the current rapid expansion of Christianity.

The timing is ripe for our grassroots campaign! Let us confidently press forward and achieve victory after victory for the biblical creation cause.

Globally the worldviews of atheism and non-religious (agnostic) are declining while global Christianity is exploding in adherents

In recent times, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) has been publishing statistics on the growth and decline of adherents for various worldviews/religions and they publish their findings in January of each year. Various Christian groups disseminate their research findings such as the International Bulletin of Missionary Research (IBMR).

In February of 2011, the American Spectator noted concerning a International Bulletin of Missionary Research (IBMR) report:

The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding. Over 600 million Christians, including millions of Roman Catholics, are charismatic or Pentecostal.

(As a theologically conservative Protestant, I do understand that not everyone who proclaims themselves a Christian is a bona fide Christian in God's eyes and there are people who are deluded and/or false teachers. See: Matthew 7:23, Matthew 7: 14-15)

In 2012 it was reported there are 800 less atheists each day in the world

In 2012, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary (GCTS) reported that every day there are 800 less atheists per day, 1,100 less non-religious (agnostic) people per day and 83,000 more people professing to be Christians per day (see: Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary - status of Global Mission report).

In 2012 an article entitled  Atheism in decline by Nigel Tomes declared:
The IBMR publishes yearly figures for religions (and non religions) around the globe. Their latest numbers, hot off the press (Jan. 2012) show some interesting trends.

1. Atheism is in Decline
In 1970 atheists (those avowing there is no God) numbered 166 million worldwide; that was almost one-in-twenty—4.5% of the globe’s population. By 2012 atheists’ number is estimated at 137 million. That’s a decline of almost 30 million. Since world population is growing, atheists’ share declined to less than one-in-fifty—under 2% in 2012. Put differently, every 24 hours there are 800 fewer atheists in the world! Atheism is in decline.
2. Agnosticism is in Decline
In 2000 agnostics (those who “don’t know” if there is a God) numbered 666 million, 10.9% of the world’s people. By 2012 agnostic’s number is estimated at 661 million--a decline of 5 million. In relative terms by 2012 agnostics represent less than one tenth (9.4%) of world population. Every 24 hours there are 1,100 less agnostics in the world. Agnostics are also in decline.
Added together these two groups make up a declining share of global population. In 1970 atheists and agnostics accounted for one-in-five (19.2%) of the world’s people. Based on current trends by 2025 they will represent less than one-in-ten (9.7%). Their population share will fall by half in 50+ years.

We encourage you to examine the entire 2012 article by Nigel Tomes entitled
Atheism in decline as it has some encouraging news about the growth of global Christianity.

Also, please see our previous post on Christian theological conservatism and religious conservatism growing in the world while the decline of global atheism is expected to accelerate: Why are 2012 and 2020 key years for Christian creationists and pro-lifers?

Global market share declining and atheistic societies and birth rates

The Birkbeck College, University of London professor Eric Kaufmann using a multitude of demographic studies argues in an academic paper entitled Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth? Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century the decline of atheism in terms of its global adherents is an established trend that will persist for the foreseeable future and the rate of decline will accelerate and affect the Western World. See: Why are the years 2012 and 2020 key years for Christian creationists and pro-lifers?

Also, for those who are interested in knowing more about Professor Eric Kaufmann's work on this matter, he also published a book titled Shall the righteous inherit the earth

In 2009, the book A sceptics guide to atheism indicated: "A worldwide poll taken in 1991 put the global figure for atheists at just 4.4% of the population. By 2006 it was estimated that only 2% of the world population were atheists."

Michael Blume, a researcher at the University of Jena in Germany, wrote "Most societies or communities that have espoused atheistic beliefs have not survived more than a century." Blume also indicated concerning concerning his research on this matter: "What I found was the complete lack of a single case of a secular population, community or movement that would just manage to retain replacement level."

Investigator Magazine had an interesting article published in 1990 entitled 2,000 years of Christian Increase which indicated that historically the percentage of the world population professing Christianity has been increasing.

New Atheism reported to have little to no effect on atheism evangelism

New Atheism is a new form of militant atheism which started in the period between 2004 and 2007. The New Atheism movement has not had much of an impact in terms of gaining new adherents to atheism. In a March 10, 2008 USA Today article Stephen Prothero wrote:

Numbers lie, but they also tell tales untrustworthy and otherwise. So the key question stirring around the much discussed U.S Religious Landscape Survey released in late February by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life is what tale does it state about the state of the union.

For some, the story of this survey, based on interviews in multiple languages with more than 35,000 adults, is the strength of American Religion.

Not too long ago, I wrote that American atheism was going the way of the freak show. As books by Christopher Hitchens and other "new atheists" climbed the best seller lists, I caught a lot of flak for that prophecy. But atheist make up only 1.6% of respondents to this survey....

The Scientific Method and Answer to Reader Response from Ike SDSU, 5/17/2012


Reader Response:
Here is a comment, left in its uncensored form, from one of our apparently evolutionist readers self-identified as IkeSDSU from 5/17/2012.

Ha ha ha, you creationists, just keep on burying your head in the sand. If you can't see it, it isn't true right? People that are real scientists don't believe your crap and you campain is just waste of time. It will never be taken seriously since you will never let it be analysed using the scientific method. "Because it says so in this book" doesn't hold up. Just stay ignorant, you are only hurting yourself as the world passes you by. 
Here is an answer:

So, Ike, have you used the scientific method to confirm or disconfirm either the Bible or the textbooks proclaiming evolution?  Do you believe evolution because “it says so in your text books” or have you performed actual experiments? Somewhat hypocritical, don’t you think? Particularly when evolutionist scientists consistently have to admit they are wrong and that evolution just does not have the evidence to back it up step-by-step.

Ike, let’s look at the scientific method and evolution.  This is what the majority of the 15 Questions for Evolutionists are about. To follow the scientific method you observe something, form a hypothesis, and perform experiments attempting to prove or disprove your hypothesis (confirm or disconfirm).  Once you achieve consistent results you either reject your hypothesis as disproven or you refine it to the conditions of the experiment confirming it.  From here more experiments are done to confirm your refined hypothesis in order to disprove it, or confirm and possibly further refine it.  Once this point is achieved, others also conduct experiments and if the results consistently confirm your hypothesis, it may be advanced to become a scientific theory; at which point it continues to be critically tested by others and either becomes accepted or rejected.

We’ll look at one simple example.  Is it scientifically established that any creature of any kind has ever been witnessed to reproduce a creature of another kind as required in the General Theory of Evolution? Has it ever been observed in nature?  Has it ever been observed in a laboratory?
The scientifically observed and tested answer to this question is, ‘”No, no living creature has ever been witnessed to reproduce a different kind of creature as required by the General Theory of Evolution.”

Due to this scientific observation that living creatures are always, one hundred percent of the time, reproduced by another living creature of the same kind, the General Theory of Evolution (often referred to as goo-to-you, pond scum-to-plumber, microbes-to-microbiologist, etc.) is dead in the water.  The number one requirement for the General Theory of Evolution to be true has already been scientifically disproven by the scientific method.

By the way, there are the statements in a certain historical text that have been scientifically confirmed as accurate:

“And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed after his kind, and the tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, after his kind:...”
“..great whales, and every living creature that moves, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind, and every winged fowl after his kind:...”
“...bring forth the living creature after his kind, cattle, and creeping thing, and beast of the earth after his kind: and it was so.”
“...made the beast of the earth after his kind, and cattle after their kind, and every thing that creeps on the earth after his kind: ...”
Ike, please show me your evidence confirmed by the scientific method where any of these statements of fact have been scientifically disconfirmed.  Have any of these creatures been scientifically shown and confirmed to have brought forth any offspring that were not of their own kind? No, they have not.  They have always been proven to bring forth offspring only after their own kind.

We have a text that in its original autograph is over 3,000 years old that is wholly consistent with testing and observation by the scientific method.  This is opposed to your belief in the General Theory of Evolution which is here disproven by the same scientific method you claim we ignore.

So, Ike, who is playing ‘ostrich’ and burying their head in the sand?



By the way, Ike, would you like to actually attempt to answer one of the 15 Questions for Evolutionists?

Barack Obama’s evolution: racism and same-sex marriage

When we consider the basic definition of “evolution” as indicative of the production of new species via mutations and natural selection via a blind, thoughtless process we note that the term “evolution” is quite often misused and applied to that which it does not pertain.

For example, in a trailer to the movie “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” the world “Evolution” appeared on the screen. Yet, the movie was not about evolution but about purposeful, goal driven, intelligent design since the premised was generic manipulation by scientists (see a two part article here and here).

Likewise, “evolution” is in the news again. Searching Google on Friday May 11, 2012 AD at 6:35 a.m. for “‘Barack Obama’ evolution” specifically searching within “Past hour” we get 948 returns, searching within “Past 24 hours” we get 40,400 returns, “Past week” and we get 137,000.

This is because Barack Obama and Joe Biden have come out of the we want more votes closet and endorsed same-sex marriage. They have made reference to the “evolution” of their views on the subject—which is a quaint way of saying flip flop—and the pop-culture-media has parroted their terminology.

Yet, this was not evolution as that would denote a blind random chance rather, this was intelligent design (how intelligent it is, is another question). In fact Barack Obama was honest enough to admit that the basis of his announcement was political expediency as he specifically planned to come out, “before the election and before the convention.”

Within that context the low hanging fruit definition of evolution is being used, the one that causes so very many conflicts and so much confusion which is to define evolution merely as “change,” “change over time,” etc.
Look at a textbook such as Campbell and Reece’s Biology (6th ed. Glossary) and you will find evolution defined as:

All the changes that have transformed life on Earth from its earliest beginnings to the diversity that characterizes it today.

It is with this definition in mind that evolutionists will ask Christians whether they believe in evolution and when the Christian responds in the negative the evolutionists dismisses Christianity as the stuff of delusion. This is because with this definition in mind, when the Christian says, “I don’t believe in evolution” what the evolutionist hears is, “I don’t believe that living organisms change.”
Lesson to be learned is: always define your terms so that when you are asked about your belief in evolution the first thing out of your mouth is not “Yes” or “No” but, “What do you mean by ‘evolution’?”

Sadly, Barack Obama himself has been the victim of Darwinian racism as throughout his campaigning and presidency he has been often likened to a chimp or some sort of ape.

This was done for the very same reason why Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi propaganda minister, complained about having to compete against the Olympian and African American Jesse Owens. It was because, within his evolutionary worldview, it was like making humans (Aryans) compete against a deer or gazelle as Owens was seen as evolutionarily closer to animals.

The misuse of the term “evolution” and the racist employment of concept of “evolution” are two very good, important and more relevant reasons to join the Question Evolution! Campaign. Ask that the term “evolution” be defined and then ask the 15 questions for evolutionists.

The Creation and Earth History Museum and the Question Evolution! Campaign are teaming up!

The The Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee, California (San Diego, California area) and the Question Evolution! Campaign are teaming up to take a dinosaur sized bite out of evolutionary belief!

The big effect creation museums can have in reducing evolutionary belief - the Alberta experience

The Creation and Earth History Museum currently has a large amount of visitors each year and has aggressive plans to increase their annual visitors. The museum, which is free to visit, is very impressive and very educational and they offer a virtual tour of their museum. Creation museums can have a big effect on reducing the amount of evolutionary belief in a large geographic area. For example, see what a big effect creation museums had in Alberta in our post about Canadian creation museums.

Strategic partnership

The owner of this creation museum was aware of the Question Evolution! Campaign and is very open to forming a mutually beneficial relationship. For example, he expressed a definite interest in carrying the Question Evolution! tracts and Question Evolution! t-shirts in the Christian/creation store which is attached to his museum. In addition, he is open to incorporating some of the 15 questions for evolutionists into his museum. Now in turn, we can assist him in growing the campaign in his area plus let people know about his museum. Also, we could help him get creationist speakers for his museum. Was there ever a better match made in heaven?

Evolutionism and atheism is doomed which must be very debilitating to atheists and evolutionists who want to continue their sinful lifestyles


Dogmatic atheists and evolutionists, we know that you cannot answer the 15 questions for evolutionists so it must be very mentally debilitating to see the grassroots Question Evolution! unfold before your eyes - especially since you want to continue your sinful lifestyles. Plus, a key ally of evolutionism is atheism and global atheism is shrinking and it is expected to shrink at an accelerated rate. So-called "liberal Christianity" is shrinking too! It must be so sad to be an evolutionist and/or atheist.

And meanwhile global Christianity and Bible believing Christianity is rapidly expanding in the world! It is such a good time to be Bible believing creationist! Hallelujah!

Faster, stronger, higher! We're not stopping. We are not giving up. Get used to the campaign evolutionists because it is not going away and it is expanding.
