How did creationists in Alberta, Canada create a 21% drop in evolutionary belief in their province? Can a similar and more efficient method be used to accomplish even better results?
How can the 15 questions for evolutionists of the Question Evolution! Campaign be used to achieve big drops in evolutionary belief?
What is the underlying reason why creationists won some legislative victories recently in the United States?
Is it enough to win legislative victories? In other words, how can legislative victories best be capitalized on to keep the momentum going?
Why Darwinism is a bullying ideology and not science
A review of the book Slaughter of the Dissidents reads:
In his Preface to the 1959 (100th anniversary) edition of Origin of Species, Professer W.R. Thompson, FRS, detailed the shortcomings of evolutionary theory, and then commented: “It is therefore right and proper to draw the attention of the non-scientific public to the disagreements about evolution. But some recent remarks of evolutionists show that they think this unreasonable. This situation, where scientific men rally to the defense of a doctrine they are unable to define, much less demonstrate with scientific rigour, attempting to maintain its credit
with the public by the suppression of criticisms and the elimination of difficulties, is abnormal and undesirable in science.”
Slaughter of the Dissidents gives a detailed report on the educational establishment’s efforts to insulate evolutionary theory and philosophical naturalism from critical assessment. It describes the suppression of critical views, and the victimisation of dissenting teachers and pupils in schools, and students and faculty in universities.
The movie Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed also showed what a bullying ideologues many Darwinists have become. Not only do they use the power of the state to indoctrinate young people into a false ideology, but they bully dissidents as well.
Anti-evolution legislative victories in the United States
In recent years the United States has seen some anti-evolution academic freedom legislative victories in the states of Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Mexico, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas and Wisconsin (see: Proliferation of Academic Freedom Bills Is Darwin Lobby's Worst Nightmare).
But are legislative victories enough? Shortly, we will explain how Canadian creationists in Alberta, Canada achieved a 21% reduction in evolutionary belief in their province and why we believe even better results can be achieved.
Why militant secularism is a house of cards and explaining the recent creationist legislative victories
The Birkbeck College, University of London professor Eric Kaufman 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.
Furthermore, Eric Kaufmann recently wrote concerning the Western World: "Committed religious populations are growing in the West, and will reverse the march of secularism before 2050."

Biblical creation organizations and their supporters doing outreach and anti-evolution books being published and other initiatives are having an effect on Darwinism. At the same time, demographic factors are at play too. Both help explain the legislative victories of creationists in the United States recently. And of course, without the help of Christian legislators, lawyers, judges and activist these creationist legislative victories could not have happened.
Are creationist legislative victories enough? Why did Alberta, Canada see a 21% reduction in evolutionary belief. Is there an even better way?
In December we relayed to our readers how Alberta, Canada creationists achieved a 21% reduction in evolutionary belief in their province through creationists educating the public (see our post: Why Canadian belief in evolution will crumble under the assault of the grassroots Question evolution! campaign).
I am not aware of similar reductions in evolutionary belief through creationist legislative victories through the academic freedom bills which were mentioned above.
The key to defeating Darwinism is education and developing a skeptical mindset to Darwinism. That is the reason why Albertans were able to create a significant drop in evolutionary belief.
Academic freedom legislation is like having a gym membership. Having a gym membership merely gives you the potential to work out. Unless you do workouts which are effective you are never going to create a strong body. In short, educational "workouts" are the answer.
The Question Evolution! Campaign with its 15 questions for evolutionists educates people in a systematic and concise way on the many weakness and inadequacies of Darwinism.
Bringing the biblical creation message and education to the people
In addition, I personally have never gone to a creation museum like the ones they set up in Alberta, Canada to educate people. I am all for creation museums and I plan on visiting one in the future.
Yet, at the same time, with the high cost of gas and the fact that some people are going to be far from creation museums, it does make perfect sense to bring the creation museum to them through grassroots tracts and programs like the Question evolution! campaign. In previous posts, I indicated that we want to develop more and more Question evolution! materials as time goes on.
Militant Darwinism and atheism is doomed - let's put it out of its misery
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.
As you can see, militant atheism and secularism is doomed. Let's help bury it. Let's rapidly accelerate its unraveling via the Question Evolution! Campaign Take action today!
