Creating a creationist majority in America and bringing down the walls of Darwinism
Samson is one of the great heroes of the Bible. He called on God for strength and was able to utterly destroy the Philistine's pagan temple. Can the temple of Darwinism be brought down in America and in the world?
Christianity has conquered destroyed false ideologies and false religions in the past.
1. Can American creationists capitalize on their recent gains and momentum and creationist majority in the United States? If so, what will it take to get this job accomplished?
2. Can American Darwinism and world Darwinism be completely destroyed? If so, how can this best be done?
These are two vital questions because America is a key batteground in the creation vs. evolution war.
How Darwinism will be conquered in America
We have posted a number of articles relating to how these secular ideologies are globally declining and/or increasingly being challenged, are often very vulnerable to proselytizing by competing worldviews, perform badly in debates, have fundamental and glaring flaws and often attempt to suppress competing worldviews. See: Evolutionary belief and atheism/agnostic are unsound worldviews and browse our collection of articles as well.
Young earth creationism is very prevalent in America and so initially starting our Question Evolution! Campaign groups efforts primarily in the United States makes a lot of sense - especially since many of our groups members are in the USA. Of course, American momentum with the campaign make a perfect springboard to spread it around the around. America has a lot of ethnic groups inside it with contacts around the world. Many cities have multiple ethnic group churches inside of them (Spanish churches, Korean-American churches, Chinese Churches, etc.).
So what will it take for creationists to achieve a creationist majority in America? A Gallup survey recently estimated that 46% of Americans are young earth creationist. It would be great to get it up to 55- 60% and beyond.
Hitting weaknesses, strong attacks and frequency of attacks
Defending Christianity is important and so is providing refutations of opposing worldviews.
The famous Chinese general Sun Tzu wrote: "Invincibility lies in the defense; the possibility of victory in the attack."
Strong teams have a good offense and a good defense. So what is the best way to combat Darwinism?
Using the military analogy again, in order for artillery attacks to be successful they have to have: a firing plan, accuracy, sufficient speed of firing and have sufficient breaking power in terms of shell size.
One of the things I like about the grassroots Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists is that it focuses upon the significant weaknesses of Darwinism at very critical points via relevant questions and content. So this establishes a good "firing plan" and hits at the core of evolutionary beliefs in a relevant and accurate manner.
We are also looking into make the presentation of the questions via tracts and online presentations be more user friendly based on helpful feedback (simpler sentence structures, organization of the questions such as giving the most important questions first and then having an additional questions and advanced questions section).
Is it possible to ramp up such an effort using volunteers?
Consider what the Christian website Gotquestions.org is doing through volunteers in terms of increased traffic to their website. We will use data from the web traffic tracking company Compete.com which measures the amount of unique visitors to websites which shows they had 800,000 unique visitors in April of 2012.
Pretty impressive what they are doing with Christian volunteers isn't it? There is not reason why creation evangelism can't be ramped up significantly through volunteers as well.
We are also talking to internet evangelists as internet evangelism is reaching tens of millions of people in recent years. For example, in 2011 Global Media Outreach and Network211 collectively gave about 150 million gospel presentations and have achieved excellent results. Internet evangelists have offered to send us traffic via their web efforts and we are presently working on implementation of some of these ideas in terms of them being done in the most optimal manner.
Also, perhaps Creation Ministries International will wish to increase their internet evangelism on their domain Creation.com in order to bring new visitors. Who knows what will develop? Historically, Christians have been very adaptable and resourceful in terms of getting their message out (Christian radio, printing press and the Reformation) and the recent embracing of internet evangelism by Christendom is a very exciting development.
Since fundraising can provide additional resources in terms of increasing the speed of attacks on evolutionism, we want to develop a fundraising team. A fundraising team can do things such as online fundraising, raising money through Christian evangelism grant writing, etc.

Paying the price
How was this victory achieved? It was done through innovation, hard work and teamwork.
Here are some select quotes of the actor who played Coach Herb Brooks from the movie Miracle which was based on this history making hockey game:
"We also need to change the way we play the game. My plan is to adopt a new style.
A hybrid of the Soviet school and the Canadian school. A combination that requires the highest level of conditioning, speed, creativity, and most of all, team chemistry."
Concerning playing against the Soviet Team: "But I also know there is a way to stay with this team. You don't defend them. You attack them! You take their game and you shove it right back in their face. The team that is finally willing to do this is the team that has a chance to take them down. The NHL won't change their game, we will. The rest of the world is afraid of them. Boys, we won't be. No one has ever worked hard enough to skate with the Soviet team an entire game. Gentlemen, we are going to work hard enough."
"Lets be idealistic, but lets also be practical."
I do think that creativity, hard work and having your team work collectively faster and more efficiently than the opposition can work miracles in many endeavors.
Christianity has much to gain by defeating Darwinism, the timing appears to be ripe given the growth of both biblical Christianity and creationism around the world and the shrinking of global atheism and agnosticism. See: Timing is right to combat Darwinism
