        1. Hello again. You linked me here from our previous discussion, http://questionevolution.blogspot.com/2012/12/an-evolutionist-tries-to-grab-moral.html , and you gave me an unsatisfactory answer that everyone, in order to believe in creation must believe in a Christian God. Now, I have not been able to look through these yet, because most of them are links to pages with more links, and I'd rather not have to go through a link bureaucracy to find beliefs which may or may not be your own. So, I challenge you with the same question again. If you do achieve a "total victory" against Darwinism, how will you explain creationism to people whose religion and/or personal beliefs contradict the idea of a creator? This time, could you please answer with your own ideas instead of linking to pages in an effort to confuse people? I would appreciate it, and I would love to hear what you think on the matter, or are you not confident enough in your creationary beliefs to answer the 1 question for you in your own words?

          1. Dear Jacob,

            I am happy to direct people to quality resources though for those who are genuinely seeking.

            At the same time, I know that human beings are naturally lazy. We have to push ourselves to do much better. I am a human being and I know this is true.

            Non-Christians, especially atheists/agnostics, often like to be intellectually lazy while at the same time falsely claiming to be very diligent about examining the substantial evidence for Christianity. In short, they live in a cocoon of self-imposed ignorance because they really don't want to know God. Of course, this is totally unacceptable and I am not going to put up with insincere people who want to waste my time.

            Sadly, many atheists/agnostics want to waste the time of Christians time and send them on fool's errands of composing material to support Christianity even though they do not want to know God and there is plenty of high quality information already out there on the internet. I will not allow this to happen to me. Jacob Fisher, I believe this is what you are doing.

            Even without great diligence the evidence of creation speaks loudly for a creator. Uneducated people can look at nature/God's creation and know there is a creator. However, men are sinners and like to suppress this knowledge.To see what he Apostle Paul wrote about this matter please read Romans 1: 18-32.

          2. Thank you for responding without links. It has finally made me feel that I am talking with a human, and I thank you for that. I wanted to clear up any misconceptions I had of you, and hope to do the same here.

            1) I am a Christian, and as such, I don't hold anyone's beliefs against them, unless they are harmful to their fellow people. I have never ever held creationism against you. What I have held against you is how you tell your message. You want to force everyone to believe in a Christian God in order for them to believe what you say. While there is nothing wrong with Christianity, or converting people to it, there is something inherently wrong with forcing your beliefs on others.

            2) The point I was trying to make was, I don't know what your actual beliefs are. To be more specific, I don't know which of the links you personally believe in. I have come to the conclusion that you believe in everything beyond these links, as you have not indicated otherwise. This is fine; however, some of the articles don't make sense considering the theme of this blog (creation vs. evolution). For example in this article: http://creation.com/images/pdfs/cabook/chapter13.pdf it is stated that Noah perhaps only brought one type of equestrian and one type of dog. Now, this implies that any and all diversity in these species happened within the 4000 years after the ark, a thing you (and many other creation sites) claim couldn't happen over the course of 4 billion years.

            3) As I have stated previously, I have no problem with your message, but I do have a problem with how you say it. You automatically assume that anyone who speaks ill on your blog is an evolutionary atheist without morals. There are some people who see your message as only reaching out to those who already believe it. Now why is this? It is because you attack anyone who questions your legitimacy in any form, whether it is someone just trying to tell you to ease up on atheists and evolutionists, or someone who is verbally attacking you. Another thing that makes your work inaccessible to everyone is the fact that none of the articles have brief summaries for those who want to understand but either don't have the time or will find themselves lost under the mountains of words. Not everyone has enough time in their lives to devote even an hour a day to read everything you and other creationists write. What would help bring these people in is, rather than spending time dragging down atheists, evolutionists, Darwin, and Dawkins, you should spend your time helping to clarify your message so that everyone can understand exactly what you are pushing to replace (not be taught next to) evolution in schools.

            Which brings us to:
            4) Why are evolution and creation so irreconcilable? Our God is a God of process. Seeds don't immediately spring out of the ground as full grown plants. Animals aren't born grown. Eggs don't turn into adult chickens. Tell me, which would be more miraculous: God creates everything in six days, and rests on the seventh, or God creates a small seed ~14 billion years ago that expands and grows into many different types of galaxies, which may have their own star systems, which may have their own planets, which may have their own life, which grew from the careful placement of atoms in The Very Beginning? I find that number 2 is much more miraculous, and much more in line with what God would do. God does everything he does so that it can be understood without him. That is how He instills faith. He makes it so that people can believe that He had nothing to do with it. This is what faith in God is. It is the belief in a God who created and permeates the universe, and who has given us the freedom to believe whatever we believe.

            Thank you for the time you spent reading this comment. It is truly a pleasure talking with you.

          3. Jacob Fisher,

            We are offering to address the central issues with you and if you are sincere, you will take us up on our offer.

            Specifically, We are going to give you the opportunity to present to tens of thousands of people the notions that macroevolution occurred and that macroevolution and biblical creation are reconcilable . Personally, I don't believe your convictions are every strong about these matters. And given the lack of support for such notions, this would not be at all surprising. See: creation.com/creation-answers

            Are you willing to have a debate centered around the 15 questions for evolutionists (see: http://creation.com/15-questions )
            via a recorded oral debate which would be distributed to tens of thousands of people. Are you willing to do the same concerning the notion that evolutionism and biblical creation are compatible ideas?

            If you are confident in your evolutionary beliefs, please make the necessary arrangements via this free chat room: http://login.meetcheap.com/conference,89538844 You can make the necessary arrangements with the chat room moderators Shockofgod or VivaYehshua. Alternatively, you can email Shockofgod via his YouTube email at http://www.youtube.com/user/shockofgod

            If you want to know more about the debate, any and all questions should be directed to Shockofgod or VivaYehshua

            There will be no future communication with you via this blog until you accept this debate offer and carry through with the debate.

          4. Hey, i need to point out first that I am a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ as my personal Lord and Savior and am studying to be a youth pastor. I have been doing a lot of research on the scientific side just to have an understanding of their side; Evolution, The Big Bang Theory, even Abiogenesis. it's hard for me to actually pinpoint flaws when Atheists continue to make claims there viewpoint is entirely accurate and has no flaws. It bugs me, especially seeing as i understand perfectly well that the Big Bang says that energy and space trace all the way back to a black hole in which exploded. The question is going to continue to surface to where the Black hole came from considering Black holes only form when stars explode. Anyways, i have researched these and apparently none of my arguments get through to this dude. He Just says the burden of proof lies with the person who believes God to exist. How do i combat that?

            There's one other thing, The Young earth creationists. I have faith in what they are doing with their evidence, but do you know about anything about this website: If so, can you help me in understanding the problem with old earth creationists and young earth creationists. Is the evidence from the creation museum accurate? This would be awesome if you knew anything about it. If not, let me know

          5. Benjamin Gingrich,

            Ask him if he would be willing to come to God on God's terms.

            "Look at Satan's reason for rebelling against God. It's not that he doesn't recognize that God is greater than he is. He does. It's just that he doesn't want to play by anybody else's rules. This idea that it is better to reign in hell than to serve in heaven is Satan's motto, and it turns out that this is also the motto of contemporary atheists such as Christopher Hitchens." - Dinesh D'Souza
