Question Evolution! Campaign and dramatic structure
One of the things I love about the Question Evolution! Campaign is that it is a story within a story within a story. In addition, people involved in the campaign are going to have personal stories. Also, I will explain how the campaign is following what literary analyst call the dramatic structure.
The overarching story and primary story
The overarching and primary story is God's plan. If you want to begin to understand God's overarching story, it requires reading the Bible.
The second level of the story
The second level of story in the creation vs. evolution battle is the global rise of Christianity and biblical creation belief and the global decline of evolutionism, atheism and agnosticism. which includes the decline of internet atheism. See: Decline of internet atheism and evolutionism
This story is like three dimensional chess game which is a type chess played on multiple boards at different levels (See: Three dimensional chess ). The reason it is like three dimensional chess is that you have different levels of society, various segments of society and multiple geographic areas of the world affecting each other.
Eric Kaufmann using a multitude of demographic studies argues in an academic paper entitled Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth? Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century the decline of atheism/agnosticism in terms of its global adherents is an established trend that will persist for the foreseeable future and the rate of decline will accelerate. Some of the factors causing this trend include: the fertility rate differential between secularists and religious people, immigration and global communication.
Kaufmann told a secular audience in Australia: "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us."
The third level of the story - Question Evolution! Campaign
Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists.
A primary reason is that they cannot answer these 15 questions and the questions upset their evolutionist apple carts.
However, there is also a second reason why the campaign aggravates evolutionists and that is because they do not understand what literary analyst call the dramatic structure.
The dramatic structure consists of:
2. Rising action
3. The climax
4. Falling action
5. The conclusion
Exposition/introduction of the Question Evolution! Campaign
The exposition/introduction was Creation Ministries International coming out with the initial 15 questions for evolutionists, the tracts, shirts, some of their initial responses to evolutionists, their 16 videos on the questions, etc. See: Question Evolution! Campaign videos produced by Creation Ministries International
In addition, there is there was the exposition/introduction from the fans of the campaign such as Shockofgod videos and this blog. Also, we have people working on a Question Evolution! book for middle school students.
Rising action of the Question Evolution! Campaign
Of course, this is the exciting part of the campaign and involves the wide dissemination of the campaign right before the unveiling of the Question Evolution! book for middle school students and the Question Evolution! booklet.
You can see the rising action stage of the campaign graphically below:

One of the fun aspects of the rising action part of this story is that it is not only full of known entities (for example, Duane Gish, John Sanford and Ian Juby endorsed the campaign), but it also full of mystery and intrigue. If you follow this blog it is you know that the Question Evolution! Campaign story is filled with mysterious Texas creationists, American creationists, Canadian creationists, New Zealand creationists, Australian creationists, Peruvian creationists, Swiss Creationists, Filipino creationists, etc. etc.
“Let your plans be dark and as impenetratable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.” - Sun Tzu
"Be extremely subtle, even to the point of formlessness. Be extremely mysterious, even to the point of soundlessness. Thereby you can be the director of the opponent's fate." - Sun Tzu
Another example is that while there is a known plan for our group carrying out the Question Evolution! Campaign as part of the exposition/introduction part of the Question Evolution! Campaign story (See: Our group's Question Evolution! group's plan - We used this blog to help form our plan), this plan has some mystery contained within it. Our plan indicates: "In addition, it is always a good idea to unleash surprises on the opposition so we have some of those planned as well."
Now could I describe our plan more fully? Of course, I could. But that would spoil the surprise for evolutionists, atheists and agnostics! We can't have that, can we? We do have a very good plan though and it is working. On the other hand, evolutionists, atheists and agnostics have no plan to halt their inevitable decline. See: Evolutionists, atheists and agnostics: What is your master plan to reverse your decline?
The middle and end of the stories
