97% of the world's population growth is taking place in the developing world, where 95% of people are religious.


On December 23, 2012, Professor Eric Kaufmann who teaches at Birbeck College, University of London wrote: 
In my book, Shall the Religious Inherit the Earth?: Demography and Politics in the Twenty-First Century, I argue that 97% of the world's population growth is taking place in the developing world, where 95% of people are religious.

On the other hand, the secular West and East Asia has very low fertility and a rapidly aging population. The demographic disparity between the religious, growing global South and the aging, secular global North will peak around 2050. In the coming decades, the developed world's demand for workers to pay its pensions and work in its service sector will soar alongside the booming supply of young people in the third world. Ergo, we can expect significant immigration to the secular West which will import religious revival on the back of ethnic change. In addition, those with religious beliefs tend to have higher birth rates than the secular population, with fundamentalists having far larger families. The epicentre of these trends will be in immigration gateway cities like New York (a third white), Amsterdam (half Dutch), Los Angeles (28% white), and London, 45% white British.
Global trends are inevitably going to impact the Western World

Professor Eric Kaufmann, who is an agnostic,  told a secular audience in Australia: "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us." As early as 2020/2021, Western countries will see a significant reversal of secularism/atheism/agnosticism and that trend will accelerate.

Olé! Olé! Olé! Hispanic American creationism is winning mucho battles over Hispanic American Darwinism

Hola, Señor Evolutionist! Hispanic American creationism is winning mucho battles over Hispanic American evolutionism. 

Time magazine reported in April of 2013 in an article entitled The Rise of Evangélicos:
According to the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, more than two-thirds of the 52-million-plus Latinos in the US are Catholic; by 2030, that percentage could be closer to half, and many are joining evangelical Protestant ranks. 
Also, see this article at Huffington Post: Rise Of Hispanic Evangelical Church: Time Magazine Discusses Influence Of Latinos In America's Religion

Evolutionists, you will have a lot of splainin' to do on why you can't satisfactorily answer the 15 questions for evolutionists of the  Question Evolution! Campaign. - especially after we translate the campaign into Spanish! Olé! Olé! Olé!

Traditionally, evangelical Christians are far more likely to be biblical creationists than Roman Catholics. Yet, there are some changes happening in the Roman Catholic church.
 

Reuters reported in 2007:
"Bible-based criticism of evolution, once limited to Protestant fundamentalists in the United States, has become an issue in France now that Pope Benedict and some leading Catholic theologians have criticized the neo-Darwinist view of creation...

These American concerns caught notice in Europe after Vienna Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn, a confidant of Pope Benedict, attacked neo-Darwinist theories in 2005 in what seemed to be a move to ally the Catholic Church with "intelligent design."...

Herve Le Guyader, a University of Paris biology professor who advised the Education Ministry on the Atlas, said high school biology teachers needed more training now to respond to the increasingly open challenges to the theory of evolution.
American evolutionist hombres! You will never surpass the growth of Hispanic American creationism! We are like a fast moving Chevy!

Victory! Time magazine reports that theological liberalism gained ground during sexual revolution, but conservative Christians are winning now through higher procreation and re-evangelization of West

In the Western World, liberal Christianity gained ground during the sexual revolution which caused a lot of splinter Protestant denominations and groups, but now they are not reproducing. Conservative churches are winning war now in the West through higher procreation and evangelists arriving from the developed world to re-evangelize the West.

Read this fascinating article by Time magazine: In the War Over Christianity, Orthodoxy is Winning

Victory!  Liberal evolutionists at mainstream news organizations are now admitting defeat!  And evolutionists have no plan to turn things around!

Creationist volunteers spent thousands of dollars on a successful Question Evolution! Campaign event and pro-biblical creation outreach


I just received an email about a successful Question Evolution! Campaign and pro-biblical creation outreach that some committed volunteers spent thousands of dollars on. Later this week, I will have even more exciting news about some events which will insure there is a lot of forward momentum in order to make 2013 be the WORST year in the history of  Darwinism. See: 2013

Below is an email and some pictures of the event plus a picture of the event is featured above (the email was slightly changed - for example, crossing out the people's names to protect their privacy).  I will be sharing more pictures in subsequent posts. In the picture above, please notice how the young man in the dark shirt is raptly focusing his attention on the Question Evolution! tract directly before him which features the 15 Questions for evolutionists.   No doubt this young man received a strong dose of  anti-Darwinism inoculation while visiting the Question Evolution! Campaign booth!

Email from an excited Australian Question Evolution! Campaign volunteer

G'day Team, 
Tumut NSW held their annual Festival of the Falling Leaf on the weekend. Noeline and her 
daughter Virginia put a lot of time, money and effort into the stall. The dinosaur showbags
were each individually stamped about 10 times - Five dinosaurs on the front, five on the back.
They poured thousands of dollars into this and many hours.

The balloons were a huge hit - They had dinosaurs on them. Our stall was well received. A number
of people said that they would renew their Creation Magazine subscription. The dinosaur showbags
were tailored to the individuals or families. All of them contained at least one Creation magazine,
creation comic and "A Question of Origins" dvd. Of course, they were filled with an assortment of
many tracts  such as the Question Evolution! Campaign tracts.  There were also lollies, miniature
dinosaurs, etc.

One bloke just wanted anything to do with geological formations. The fossil stand created a lot
of interest also. The bloke standing with his family was a Tumut pastor. He thanked us profusely
and asked us to set up a table after his church service.  (You will see a pic of him putting his
number in my phone with a small dinosaur, using the tail.)

It really was a great stall but my words just cannot do it justice. Thank you to all who made this

possible, especially XXXXX  XXXXX, her daughter Virginia, husband Ken, Ron and Denise XXXXX for
supplying the Question of Evolution dvds, and CMI.

We'll be back next year and in the meantime, will be looking for other opportunities.

Pete

More bad news for liberals, pro-aborts and Darwinists - religioustolerance.org has lost a LOT of web traffic!



My Christian creationist and pro-life friends are definitely not fans of the website religioustolerance.org which is a website which spews evolutionist nonsense and pro-abortion nonsense and fails to present alternative viewpoints adequately.  As you can see above, the website religioustolerance.org lost a LOT of web traffic in 2011 and 2012.

Do not be surprised if their website loses a lot of web traffic after 2013 because 2013 will be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism. See: Biblical creation belief will grow in America in 2013 and  2013: A terrible year for Darwinism

In 2013, 42 states in America have introduced legislation imposing limits on abortion access. Expect more pro-life legislation - 2013 will be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism

On April 27, 2013, it was reported that in the United States, 42 states have introduced legislation imposing limits on abortion access. Considering the United States has 50 states, 42 is a considerable number of states enacting these type of laws.

Furthermore, in 2012 biblical creation belief in the United States saw a surge in growth and in 2013 biblical creationists will be more unified and engage in more grassroots activism.  See: Biblical creation belief will grow in America in 2013

Why does this matter? Biblical creation belief fuels Christian theological conservatism which in turn fuels pro-life activity.

Consider:

 The Birkbeck College, University of London professor Eric Kaufmann wrote in his 2010 book Shall the Righteous Inherit the Earth? concerning America:
High evangelical fertility rates more than compensated for losses to liberal Protestant sects during the twentieth century. In recent decades, white secularism has surged, but Latino and Asian religious immigration has taken up the slack, keeping secularism at bay. 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 towards 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 pro-life. Their activism will leap over the borders of the 'Redeemer Nation' to evangelize the world. Already, the rise of the World Congress of Families has launched a global religious right, its arms stretching across the bloody lines of the War on Terror to embrace the entire Abrahamic family.
A survey of 1535 people, conducted by the Australian National University, revealed that belief in evolution is associated with moral permissiveness. See:  Morals decline linked to belief in evolution  If you teach people that they come from animals and that are merely animals and they will often act like animals.

In addition, evolutionary and atheistic ideology often leads to more abortions in societies and leaders of these ideologies have often been at the forefront of pushing abortion. See:  Evolutionary thinking and the pro-life vs. pro-abortion movements in 2012/2013

Secular Belgium is crumbling. A golden age of Belgium creationism is dawning. Also, North American creationism will continue to expand


The April 2013 edition of the International Bulletin of Missionary Research declares concerning Belgium:
The number of Protestant churches has grown significantly over the last several decades, almost doubling since 1980. In addition, some of the largest Protestant churches in Belgium today were started after 1980. Church membership statistics are more difficult to establish. In 1980, on the basis of school registration statistics and church membership rolls from 190 churches, historian Emile Braekman estimated the number of Protestants in Belgium to be between 90,000 and 100,000. By 2010, the number of Protestants in Belgium was estimated at 150,000, with the largest population percentage (6%) in Brussels.

In 2012, even without the independent churches, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches made up 35 percent of all Protestant churches in Belgium. The growth rate of these churches between 1980 and 2012 was approximately 7.8 new churches per year, a stronger rate of growth than that of even the golden years of church planting among the non-Pentecostal denominations before the Second World War, which was 3.3 churches per year. If the current growth continues, Pentecostal and Charismatic churches will represent half of all Protestants in Belgium within the next fifteen or twenty years.

The growth of immigrant churches, especially in Brussels and other major urban areas, is strongly linked to the growth of Pentecostalism, but immigrants are not the only reason behind the increase. Many Belgians themselves have been drawn to Pentecostalism, even within immigrant-led Pentecostal churches. Pentecostalism has become, as Allan Anderson demonstrates in his 2004 monograph, a global faith, with a dynamism that seems destined to leave its mark on post-Catholic secular Belgium.  

European Darwinism is doomed!  It's all over with the Darwinism fraudster fireworks kids. A time of real science is on its way!  See: European creationism is expanding and  Global creationism is expanding. Global atheism/agnosticism is shrinking

Is fraudster too harsh a word for Darwinists?  Consider this piece of information  I just read today: "The prominent Harvard evolutionary biologist Marc Hauser resigned in 2011 during an investigation by the Office of Research Integrity at the Department of Health and Human Services that would end up determining that some of his papers contained fabricated data." Will high profile Darwinists be exposed in 2013?  One thing for sure, 2013 will be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism. See: 2013

Expect the growth of American biblical creation belief to continue to grow and to blossom in North America

In 2012, the Gallup organization released survey data indicating the biblical creation belief is growing in the United States. We will disseminate the 15 questions for evolutionists  far and wide!

The New York Times, a major pro-evolution newspaper, had a terrible 2012. 2013 will be an even worse year

The New York Times website  is a very pro-evolution and pro-liberal ideology website that historically has had a significant ripple effect among other media outlets.   As you can see via the web traffic graph above courtesy of Alexa, 2012 was a terrible year for the New York Times and we predict that 2013 will be even worse.

Why will the NY Times'  readership likely grow worse and worse for the New York Times? 

In April of 2013, BeyondChron, a San Francisco online daily, reported:
The State of the Media report said over 30 percent of respondents, a growing number, are fleeing their newspapers and magazines because of deteriorating quality.

Why is this important?

Consider what the investigative reporter John Stossel declared as reported by Cybercast News:
While the newspapers reach only a fraction of people compared to the television networks, he said radio and television producers rely heavily on their contents. "The reason the Times, and to a lesser extent the Post, are so important, and they are, is because the TV and radio - all of the media - copy it sycophantically," he [John Stossel] said. "That's how bias at the Times becomes bias in other media.

We predicted that 2012 would be the worst year in the history of Darwinism and it was.  And we predict that 2013 is going to be an even WORSE year in the history of Darwinism! See: Making 2013 be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism.

Also, historically the New York Times and other major media outlets have been apostles of atheism and not objective in their reporting (see video below).  These media outlets typically give atheists a free ride.

The web traffic of the New York Times was pretty stable before 2012.


The stock price of the New York Times has lost a lot of value since 2001

College enrollment shows signs of slowing which means less post high school evolutionary indoctrination. Also, the ever shrinking role of tenured evolutionist professors and evolutionary biologists

A graph showing college enrollment in the United States and given the Eurocrisis and low performing European colleges and universities, it would not surprise me if Europe had a similar situation occurring.


The Wall Street Journal reported on April 18, 2013 that college enrollment has been facing a depressed market in the United States: Vital signs report: Depressed College Enrollment

A 2012 report indicates that "higher-education officials are fretting about ominous signs that overall college enrollment is starting to drop."  

Universities and colleges are a major source of additional evolutionary indoctrination and the likelihood of someone becoming a Darwinist goes up with post high school education. See: Evolutionary belief and education

An American study found that forty-five percent of 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. Students, particularly those who made poor college major choices, are angry that college does not adequately prepare them for the world outside of college and leaves them with a significant amount of debt.

And there is plenty of bad news coming in when it comes to the issue of college/university Darwinist indoctrination as you will soon see.

Secular humanist Paul Kurtz vs. the Christian Francis Schaeffer - Schaeffer wins hands down in the legacy department

The late Paul Kurtz is considered to be the "father of secular humanism" (a form of atheism). The late Francis Schaeffer was a Christian apologists who argued that Christendom had to do more to confront secular humanism, advance Christianity in the public square and he also argued against theological modernism.  Schaeffer was the author of the book A Christian Manifesto which a number of Christian and conservative political public figures say had a big influence on them.

The current web traffic on the Paul Kurtz website is so low that Alexa does not give it a ranking and lists its ranking as "no data" (See: Alexa - Paul Kurtz).  On the other hand, Francis Schaeffer has a number of websites dedicated to honoring his legacy and they all have rankings listed by Alexa. 

See:


Previously, we published articles on how Paul Kurtz left no significant legacy:

Paul Kurtz is the father of secular humanism and he recently passed away.  Up until a few minutes ago when an atheist was no doubt embarrassed by Paul Kurtz's  lack of a legacy, the atheist Paul Kurtz's book The Turbulent Universe had a zero Amazon rating.  The book Atheism for Dummies has a 4.5 Amazon star rating.

Publishers Weekly published an article which declared concerning Prometheus Books, which is a leading publisher of atheist books:
Prometheus Books has published in the category since its founding in 1969. This spring, Prometheus’ list includes five atheism titles, among them God and the Atom by Victor J. Stenger (April), 50 Simple Questions for Every Christian by Guy P. Harrison (Mar.), and The Outsider Test for Faith: How to Know Which Religion Is True by John W. Loftus (Mar.). Maxick credits the New Atheists with bringing what was a niche topic to a broader audience. However, since then, she says, “we haven’t seen the trend as impactful. The wave tapered off to a more traditional level of sales.
