So, what are the top 10 internet languages?
Why is translating the Question Evolution! Campaign to Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese and Italian important to help turbocharge creation evangelism?
What languages should be a priority in terms of translating the Question Evolution! Campaign ?
What is the most efficient way of extinguishing Darwinism so it is tossed on the dust heap of failed materialistic ideologies?
Why is important to translate the Question Evolution! Campaign into multiple languages?
On September 5, 2012, we posted an article about the importance of translating the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists into multiple languages.
Namely, we discussed translating the upcoming Question Evolution! booklet and the Question Evolution book for middle school students into multiple languages. We also discussed that ideally some languages would have free e-books in order to make significant and fast inroads into cultures of modest means such as Latin America and China. Plus, we discussed dubbing future Question Evolution! videos.
Due to world cultures having a greater effect on each other due to global communication and immigration, it is important to have a global efforts.
Systematically and strategically collapsing Darwinism
To better understand the important of attacking evolutionary belief in a systematic, strategic and global manner please examine these 5 resources:
1. Reducing global evolutionary belief through the wide distribution of free Question Evolution! e-books and videos in multiple languages
2. Globally the worldviews of atheism and non-religious (agnostic) are declining while global Christianity is exploding in adherents
3. Why are the years 2012 and 2020 key years for Christian creationists and pro-lifers?
4. Global decline of atheism and the rise of global creationism. Hurray for the Question Evolution! Campaign!
5. Our group's plan, strategy and tactics for advancing the Question Evolution! Campaign
What top 10 translating priorities should the Question Evolution! Campaign have?
Top Ten Online Language Populations
There were 565,004,126 English speaking people using the internet in May 2011, representing 26.8% of all the internet users in the world.
Statistics compiled and updated on 31st May 2011 by Internet World Stats shows that the top 10 languages on the web were:
1. English: 565,004,126 (26.8% of total worldwide internet users) with a 301.4% growth rate between 2000 and 2011.
2. Chinese: 509,965,013 (24.2%) / +1,478.7%
3. Spanish: 164,968,742 (7.8%) / +807.4%
4. Japanese: 99,182,000 (4.7%) / +110.7%
5. Portuguese: 82,586,600 (3.9%) / +990.1%
6. German: 75,422,674 (3.6%) / +174.1%
7. Arabic: 65,365,400 (3.3%) / +2,501.2%
8. French: 59,779,525 (3.0%) / +398.2%
9. Russian: 59,700,000 (3.0%) / +1,825.8%
10. Korean: 39,440,000 (2.0%) / +107.1%
According to Science, the National Research Council (CNR) of Italy helped to fund and promote a creationist book that was edited by a vice-president of CNR.So we know that recently creationist thought was present at a top level of the Italian scientific community.
I would add Italian to the list of languages that the campaign should be translated into since the Roman Catholic Church is still heavily influenced by Italians and the Roman Catholic Church still heavily leans pro-evolution. In addition, for the short term Arabic will not be priority for reasons I will shortly explain.

However, Reuters reported in 2007:
"Bible-based criticism of evolution, once limited to Protestant fundamentalists in the United States, has become an issue in France now that Pope Benedict and some leading Catholic theologians have criticized the neo-Darwinist view of creation...
These American concerns caught notice in Europe after Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a confidant of Pope Benedict, attacked neo-Darwinist theories in 2005 in what seemed to be a move to ally the Catholic Church with "intelligent design."...
Herve Le Guyader, a University of Paris biology professor who advised the Education Ministry on the Atlas, said high school biology teachers needed more training now to respond to the increasingly open challenges to the theory of evolution.
In addition, translating the campaign into Arabic would have to be integrated with internet and offline general Christian evangelism through the formation of strategic alliances. There are Christian ministries focusing on the Arabic and Muslim populations via the internet and via offline methods. Generally speaking though, Darwinism hasn't made much inroads into the Muslim population except those indoctrinated via colleges and universities.
An article entitled Islamic view on evolution reports:
A 2007 study of religious patterns found that only 8% of Egyptians, 11% of Malaysians, 14% of Pakistanis, 16% of Indonesians, and 22% of Turks agree that Darwin's theory is probably or most certainly true, and a 2006 survey reported that about 25% of Turkish adults agreed that human beings evolved from earlier animal species.
So at this time, I am not sure how high a priority translating the campaign into Arabic would be. I would say translating the campaign into Italian would be more important.
Below are resources which show why translating the campaign to Spanish, Portuguese, French, Chinese and Italian could help turbocharge world biblical creationism:
Young earth creationism growing in Latin America
Rise of young earth creationism in Mexico
Creationism is growing in Brazil and spilling into its neighbors
Creationism growing in France
Creationism is growing in France
French scholars say evangelicalism is likely the fastest growing religion in France
The future of European Darwinism and atheism is bleak
China and Christianity, atheism and creationism
World's biggest atheist population about to see a big decline
