American evolutionists, the Republican creationist fertility advantage is growing.

The Republican Party in America is populated with more religious conservatives who support creationism than the rival Democrat Party.  

Recently,  Mark LaRochelle at Human Events reported: 
As we have pointed out before, this approach backfired the last time it was tried, in 1986. It’s Democrats who face demographic extinction, due to the “fertility gap.”

In terms of fertility, “the GOP has a lead over the Democrats among white women and among younger women at all levels of income and education,” according to political scientist Eric Kaufman. And this “Republican fertility advantage,” he says, is growing.

Behind the Democrats’ “baby bust” is liberalism. As reported, Arthur C. Brooks, president of the American Enterprise Institute, observed, “according to the 2004 General Social Survey, if you picked 100 unrelated politically liberal adults at random, you would find that they had, between them, 147 children.
“If you picked 100 conservatives, you would find 208 kids. That’s a ‘fertility gap’ of 41 percent.”

“The growing Republican fertility advantage largely derives from religion,” according to Kaufman. In his 2010 book, “Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century,” Kaufman argues, “across denominations, the fertility advantage of religious fundamentalists of all colours is significant and growing. After 2020, their demographic weight will begin to tip the balance in the culture wars toward the conservative side, ramping up pressure on hot-button issues such as abortion. By the end of the century, three quarters of America may be anti-abortion.”

Advancing the Question Evolution! Campaign in America

Our Question Evolution! Campaign group mainly consist of Americans and Canadians although we have other members outside these two countries. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to aggressively promote the 15 questions for evolutionists in the United States.  This weekend we are contacting a number of creationist groups in the United States.  There are over 150 creationist groups in America who specialize in the promotion of young earth creationism.

 America is a key batteground  in the creation vs. evolution war.
