Grassroots biblical creationism vs. state evolutionism and state atheism. Which is stronger?

Michael Ruse, an atheist and evolutionist science philosopher declared: “Evolution is a religion. This was true of evolution in the beginning, and it is true of evolution still today.” -

Given that many children are force fed the atheistic religion of evolutionism in public schools, I thought I would share some related information and let you judge for yourself on how sustainable state atheism/evolutionism will be against grassroots efforts such as the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists.

Below is an excerpt from an interesting article by Paul Froese entitled Forced Secularization in Soviet Russia: Why an Atheistic Monopoly Failed that I thought I would share with our readers:
Atheists waged a 70-year war on religious belief in the Soviet Union. The Communist Party destroyed churches, mosques, and temples; it executed religious leaders; it flooded the schools and media with anti-religious propaganda; and it introduced a belief system called “scientific atheism,” complete with atheist rituals, proselytizers, and a promise of worldly salvation. But in the end, a majority of older Soviet citizens retained their religious beliefs and a crop of citizens
too young to have experienced pre-Soviet times acquired religious beliefs. This article seeks to explain why atheists, with the full support of a totalitarian state, were unsuccessful in secularizing Russian society.

I encourage you to read the whole article plus I offer a few other resources which are related:

United States and state evolutionism

In the United States state evolutionism and evolutionism in general appears to be weak and growing weaker.

In 2011, the results of a study was published indicating that most United States high school biology teachers are reluctant to endorse the theory of evolution in class.

In June of 2012, a Gallup survey was released indicating that creationism was recently rising in the United States. In addition, in recent times there has been a number of anti-evolutionism bills passed in state legislatures.
