Question Evolution! Campaign and its effect in 2012 so far as far as the dissemination of the 15 questions for evolutionists. The email was written by Gary Bates the CEO of Creation Ministries International (CMI) - USA. We have a copy of that email below.
In addition, our Question Evolution! group will soon have some major news to announce in December of 2012 as far as our efforts and our continued efforts in 2013.
In 2013, we will penetrate far more deeply into the marketplace of ideas with the Question Evolution! Campaign and other related efforts. See: Making 2013 be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism.and Making 2013 be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism. - Part 2
Why will we increase our reach substantially in 2013? There are two major reasons.
Two reasons why our efforts will increase in 2013
1. We have the momentum and now is the time to increase our efforts and not diminish them. Global creationism is increasing in adherents and creationism in many developed countries such as the United States, the UK and France is growing as well. In addition, belief in biblical creation is exploding in China and Latin America.
Belief in biblical creation is on the rise in the world
American young earth creationism increased in recent months - Gallup survey
Evangelical Christianity rising in the UK and challenging the status quo
French scholars say evangelicalism is likely the fastest growing religion in France
China: World's biggest atheist population about to see a big decline
Rise of young earth creationism in Mexico
Creationism is growing in Brazil and spilling into its neighbors
2. Once a creationist bear gets a taste of defeating evolutionism blood, he acquires a taste for it. We are going to devour a lot of the evolutionist market share in 2013 and the remainder of this decade.
Evolutionists, you have to come out of your cabin sometime. And when you do, expect to be mauled by the 15 questions for evolutionists. We are going to tear into evolutionary nonsense with our 15 questions for evolutionists claws without ceasing in 2013.
There will be running away from the Question Evolution! Campaign bear in 2013. It will be faster and more powerful with each passing day of 2013. Evolutionists prepare to have your evolutionary nonsense have its arms, legs, head and torso receive some additional Question Evolution! Campaign bites.

Gary Bates CEO of CMI-US on effects of the Question Evolution! Campaign in 2012
A message from Gary Bates, CEO.As in the previous years I have written to you, I am pleased to say that the number of churches and individuals reached through direct CMI ministry increased yet again. This year, our team made 1,200 presentations globally, and 320 of those events were right here in the USA.
But this increase in events is multiplied many times over when you consider CMI’s distinctive: to train and equip the believer with answers so they can reach others. The heart of our ministry isn’t to merely speak to as many believers as we are able, but to give them the confidence and tools to reach their families, friends, coworkers, etc, exponentially increasing our reach. Simply, equipping believers works! It encourages and motivates them to not only be confident about what they believe, but it emboldens them to reach others.
Due to the depth of our scientists and other qualified staff, CMI has demonstrated the ability to respond quickly to the claims of evolutionists and even other organizations who compromise God’s Word by attempting to reconcile evolution and/or millions of years with the Bible. For example, Peter D. contacted us to say:
However, this year brought in lots of unprecedented comments from an unexpected area. You might recall that our theme this year, Question Evolution!, was spearheaded by a simple tract called 15 Questions for Evolutionists. Well, in reality it wasn’t that ‘simple’. The questions were
very well-thought-out objections—in fact, challenges that we felt evolutionary theory had no answer for. It was compiled by our staff biologists (an area where CMI is particularly strong) and the idea was to have something easy for our supporters to distribute.
but this year a significant group has been newly reached.
I can honestly say that dealing with such responses time and again, with an attitude of gentleness and respect, is very taxing not only in terms of time and resources, but also emotionally. However, it is also immensely encouraging. One never tries to take it personally, and as the CEO, one often feels protective of fellow staff under your watch. Of course, many of us have walked the same road as these misguided souls, being former evolutionists ourselves. Many of these protagonists, up until this time, had never heard a reasonable defense of why Creation and design might actually be true.
So, we are now squarely in the sights of many evolutionists. The more we penetrate, the more active the opposition becomes. There has been an increased level of interaction with skeptics who are constantly sending us correspondence in an effort to show how the Bible is wrong. They have even threatened to disrupt our meetings—in churches! But I repeat, this means that they are hearing creation answers for the first time, and for this, we are thankful. As Leon B. astutely observed when he wrote:
Please understand that at this stage we want to keep our light ‘under a bushel’ just for a moment. We are being watched, and no doubt even mentioning the project in this letter will cause the opposition to mount even before the first word has been published. We don’t want to give the opposition advance opportunity to undermine the information, and close people’s minds.
However, stay tuned for our January CMI Prayer News when the details will be revealed.
Because of the need for relative secrecy, we have not been able to bring this project before you until it was well advanced. As such, in the short term, we have taken a step of faith and used seed money from our general funds, which supports our day to day ministry—our outreach to churches and our internet campaign/question answering etc. We cannot cut back on core ministry. We include testimonies in our letters simply to show you the effectiveness of using biblical creation to reach people. Like Gerrit V. who wrote to thank us for our resources. He said:
And to those who already support us on a regular basis, thank you so much. Would you please consider a special end of year gift that will enable the ministry you support, to not only continue, but to start 2013 at full steam as we endeavor to finalize our exciting new book and DVD project?
In anticipation of your gift, we would like to offer you some free gifts. You can use the enclosed response slip to do so.
Thank you so much for partnering with us
