Two pillars of evolutionary belief and atheism are rickety and cracking severely

Global atheism and evolutionism are crumbling while global Christianity and creationism are growing rapidly around the world and there is plenty of data and evidence to support this claim. See: Global atheism/agnosticism are shrinking and global Christianity/creationism are growing rapidly

In an article entitled Two Pillars of  Skepticism Leon Jaroff and Paul Kurtz died this weekend Smithsonian.com declared:
Leon Jaroff, the man who founded Discover Magazine in 1980, has died at the age of 85. Paul Kurtz, a philosopher, was only a year older than Jaroff and also passed away this weekend. Together, the two men represent some of the founding ideas of the modern skeptic community.
We have compelling information/data that Paul Kurtz left no significant legacy. See: Paul Kurtz, the father of secular humanism, is another atheist failure without a legacy and PZ Myers proves Paul Kurtz, the father of secular humanism, was another atheist failure without a legacy

Let's see what kind of legacy Leon Jaroff left.

Taking an axe to the rickety pillars of evolutionism and atheism
It certainly seems as if these pillars of evolutionism and atheism are cracking doesn't it? Imagine the effects on these cracking and rickety pillars of evolutionary belief and atheism when the well designed and aggressive anti-evolution grassroots Question Evolution! Campaign with its15 questions for evolutionists campaign is unleashed upon them

Evolutionists and atheists, the Question Evolution! Campaign axeman cometh!  2012 and 2013 are going to be HORRIBLE years for evolutionism and atheism. 


Making 2012 be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism

Making 2013 be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism.

Also, consider this:

Currently global atheism is shrinking in terms of adherents and it is expected to shrink at an accelerated rate due to demographic factors and other factors as well. On the other hand, global Christianity and global creationism are rapidly expanding. The Question Evolution! Campaign can certainly serve as a catalyst for the continued shrinking of global atheism plus assist in the current rapid expansion of Christianity.

Professor Eric Kaufmann told a secular audience in Australia: "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us."

Refuting evolution


  1. Interesting. I really like the fact that your "references" for the above article(s) are all from within this same website that makes the assertions. No conflict of interest or biased information here (some said sarcastically). And if portions of referenced articles do happen to originate from totally independant sources they are all cherry-picked and do not offer any real value without any counterpoints.

    Also, within one of your many referenced articles there is this gem of an opinion:

    "Evolution teaches us there is no God, no heaven, no hell, and that people are nothing more than advanced pond-scum, and morality is arbitrary to whatever the majority of chemical reactions do at a given moment in time."

    As a person who regularly performs scientific research, and having two MS degrees I do not know where you obtained this information from. In all of my reading on this subject I have no clue where evolution reportedly teaches me that there is no God, nor Heaven, etc., ...

    Sure there are numerous atheists that believe in evolution but I never knew that being an atheist was a requirement for believing in evolution.

    I think that the main problem within the debate on evolution vs. Biblical Creationism is that most people on both sides of this debate feel that the answer is entirely black and white, that "the belief" has to be totally one way or the other when in all liklehood the true answer is somewhere in between the two extremes. In other words, it is most definitely not all black and white but rather is comprised of numerous shades of grey.

    I happen to be a lifelong Catholic and I most definitely believe in God but I also believe in evolution. In my mind one is not mutually exclusive of the other. I also do not believe in the theory that the Earth is relatively young as biblical creationism implies. Having read the Bible a number of times and referring to it often, I do not believe everything within the bible is meant to be taken literally. In my mind some parts of the Bible are a literal account of actual events while other parts of the bible are stories, or other 'types' of literature. The Bible is literature, as is any book filled with language. It has: Law, History, Wisdom, Poetry, Song, Fables, Gospel, Epistles, Prophecy, and Apocalyptic Literature.

    In summary, a belief in Christianity and God does not necessarily mean that you cannot also believe in evolution, and vice-versa.

    1. Sarah,

      A few points:

      1. re: my references

      As a person who has two MS degrees, one would hope that you would not employ the genetic logical fallacy.

      Yet, unfortunately that is what you did. I guess this is another case of pride coming before the fall! See: genetic fallacy at: http://www.fallacyfiles.org/genefall.html

      The consensus of economics professors did not see the 2008 financial crisis coming.

      An American study found that forty-five percent of college students achieved no significant improvement in their critical thinking, reasoning or writing skills during their first two years of college. After four years, 36 percent displayed no significant increases in these so-called "higher order" thinking skills. See: http://www.mcclatchydc.com/2011/01/18/106949/study-many-college-students-not.html

      A very large percentage of college students are graduating and finding out they are unemployable and saddled with a lot of debt. See: http://www.forbes.com/sites/ccap/2011/04/05/the-higher-education-bubble/

      So much for the prestige of academia!

      2. Other than saying that you do not believe that Genesis should be taken literally and that you have read Genesis often you offer no proof, compelling evidence or sound argumentation that Genesis should not be taken literally. Sadly, this is another case of you behaving illogically.

      One can perform a task repeatedly wrong, but that does not make it any more correct. There are plenty of people in various fields with years of experience, but they never get any better. Practice does not make perfect. Only perfect practice makes perfect. If you go into something with misplaced assumptions, you are not going to achieve optimal results. This is not another case of pride being a problem for you. Creationists are well aware of the Bible containing various classes of writing, but that does not make Genesis be mere myth.

      Creation Ministries International, on the other hand, offers sound reasons for a literal interpretation of Genesis and offers evidence (Bible exegesis, historical evidence, etc.): http://creation.com/creation-compromises-questions-and-answers

      Although this resource, deals with New Testament Bible exegesis, it does offer helpful information on Bible exegesis: http://www.godward.org/archives/BS%20Notes/Basic%20rules%20for%20NT%20exegesis.htm

      Also, see this resource re: avoiding fallacies when doing historical analysis/investigations: http://questionevolution.blogspot.com/2012/09/origins-science-and-avoiding-logical.html

      3. 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.

      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

      4. It is unfortunate that I had to point out cases of you behaving illogically or pridefully. Yet, I do believe it was warranted. Usually, prideful people are not open to correction and become angry or indignant when corrected. Hopefully, this will not be the case with you.

    2. Sarah,

      5. Since WWII, the prominent defenders of macroevolution have been atheists/agnostics: http://creation.com/a-whos-who-of-evolutionists and http://creation.com/refuting-evolution-chapter-1-evolution-creation-science-religion-facts-bias

      It is not a mystery that atheism/naturalism/evolutionism are allies. See:
      http://creation.com/the-religious-nature-of-evolution Also, Darwinism in schools and universities employs methodological naturalism rather than a going where the evidence leads. See: http://creation.com/creation-answers for an examination of the evidence

      The evolutionist Dr. Scott Todd, an immunologist at Kansas State University, epitomized irrational evolutionary denial of the evidence for creation in his correspondence to the science journal Nature. Dr. Scott wrote: "Even if all the data point to an intelligent designer, such an hypothesis is excluded from science because it is not naturalistic".

      6. Please see the false compromise fallacy: http://changingminds.org/disciplines/argument/fallacies/false_compromise.htm
