In a previous post today, we wrote about a Question Evolution! supporter who come up with the idea of a "Question Evolution! Day" as a part of the Question Evolution! Campaign and its 15 questions for evolutionists See our post: A grassroots supporter of the Question Evolution! Campaign wants a Question Evolution! Day. Question Evolution! Day will be held on February 12. 2013
In response to our attention that some desperate Darwinists are making feeble attempts to defend their evolutionary belief - a belief we know is based on "gut feelings" and not sound science. See: Evolutionary gut feelings, "Belief in Evolution Boils Down to a Gut Feeling" and Evidence against evolution and for creation

It has come to our attention that Feb 12 2013 (Darwin's birthday) is going to be 'Question Evolution Day' so we thought- gee, that would be a great day to celebrate evolution and Charles Darwin's birthday!
If you are a product of evolution and have evolved bipedalism and a large brain, then celebrate evolution however you feel! Go to the zoo to observe similarities between yourself and our ape cousins, make a Darwin cake, read 'On the Origin of Species' or go to the botanical gardens to observe how human artificial selection has enhanced the look and scent of flowers.
I was made aware of this feeble attempt to defend Darwinism by a commentator on our blog who wrote:
Glad you brought up the religious cult nature part. There are groups set up on Facebook and blogs set up to mock Bob and his work. It shows the religious fundamentalist attitude of Darwinists. Another thing that shows fanatic religion is that they made a love of evolution day as a direct reaction to question evolution day www.facebook.com/events/427392470639731/A response to the Facebook evolutionist
1. The Darwinists completely failed to address question #6 of the Question Evolution! Campaign.
I cite Question #6:
Living things look like they were designed, so how do evolutionists know that they were not designed? Richard Dawkins wrote, “biology is the study of complicated things that have the appearance of having been designed with a purpose.”4 Francis Crick, the co-discoverer of the double helix structure of DNA, wrote, “Biologists must constantly keep in mind that what they see was not designed, but rather evolved.”5 The problem for evolutionists is that living things show too much design. Who objects when an archaeologist says that pottery points to human design? Yet if someone attributes the design in living things to a designer, that is not acceptable. Why should science be restricted to naturalistic causes rather than logical causes? See: Is the design explanation legitimate? and Video on Question 62. Creationists argue that similarity is not just explainable by creation, but predicted. Christian apologist JP Holding explains:
Homologous structures, far from pointing away from a designer of infinite wisdom, would have indicated to readers of the Bible in their time a designer who did indeed possess infinite wisdom and mastery over His creation. It is only because modern persons have arbitrarily decided that a certain degree of what they see as ‘originality’ is a proper means value that the evolutionists’ argument carries any apparent force.
To frame our argument against the evolutionists’ misuse of homologous structures requires us to have an understanding of certain values critical to ancient persons. Roman literature of the New Testament period tells us that ‘(t)he primary test of truth in religious matters was custom and tradition, the practices of the ancients.’ In other words, old was good, and innovation was bad. Change or novelty was ‘a means value which serves to innovate or subvert core and secondary values.’
By itself, this demolishes one part of the evolutionists’ argument and makes it, clearly, a case of arbitrary imposition of modern values. In a context such as the above, ‘radically different design’ would have indicated to an ancient reader either no deity, or else a deity whose means was chaos and instability, or a deity who did not have mastery over creation
3. The utter weakness of the homology argument. See: Homology and Embryology
4. Nowhere on this Facebook page did I see a creation vs. evolution debate challenge. Of course, we know that creationists tend to win the debates and that evolutionism cannot stand cross-examination. See: Creation scientists generally win the creation vs. evolution debates
5. Facebook can be a tremendous time waster - especially those who become obsessed with Facebook. See: Facebook Linked To Psychological Disorders In Teens and Facebook use can lower grades by 20 percent, study says
In the case of this evolutionist, there seems to be an abundance of the psychological malady called "denialism" as he is attempting to run away from the clear evidence of creation!
6. We throw down a Question Evolution! debate challenge gauntlet! A debate challenge to the Facebook evolutionist and all Facebook evolutionists:
Are you willing to have a debate centered around the 15 questions for evolutionists (see: 15 questions for evolutionists ) 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
