“There is no such thing as consensus science. If it’s consensus, it isn’t science. If it’s science, it isn’t consensus. Period.” ~Michael Crichton
Have you ever noticed that, while our culture claims to promote tolerance, questions, and open-mindedness; it ironically does NOT tolerate questions or open-mindedness about the veracity of evolution? Yet, throughout the ages, every great scientist has been characterized by his/her willingness to challenge the status quo, instead of merely accepting it. And, if history has taught us anything, it has repeatedly revealed that the most brilliant scientists were once considered crazy by their contemporaries.
So, in the spirit of good science, and to honor the 206th birthday of the legendary biologist, Charles Darwin, we at Creation Today have joined forces with The Question Evolution Project and Creation Ministries International to encourage YOU to ask tough questions about the worldview famously attached to Charles Darwin’s name. There are many different ways to celebrate this occasion, here are just a few ideas:
- Local friends – join us at the Creation Store for a Free Movie Night.
- Invite friends over for finger foods and a movie about Darwin.
- Invite a Creation Speaker to come speak to your church or group.
- Find an event already planned for your area.
- Print “15 Questions for Evolutionists” and distribute in a public location.
- Join The Question Evolution event on facebook
- Use Question Evolution graphics on various social media outlets.
- Wear your favorite creation T-shirt.
- Engage the culture with tracts or signs about evolution.
- Remember to pray for seeds to be sown and that the Lord of the Harvest will open the eyes of the blind through the faithful witness of His children. (Matthew 9:38)
Three Movie Ideas for Question Evolution Day
There are many great resources you could use for this. Some are even available free online. Here are a few of our suggestions.
1. DARWIN AND DARWINISM – For the very first time in the United States, especially adapted for US TV and DVD systems, we present Paul Taylor’s documentary of Charles Darwin and his ideas.
Featuring John Mackay, Brian H Edwards and Dr Andy McIntosh, and filmed on location in Shrewsbury, Down and Westminster, this wide-ranging film analyzes Darwin’s ideas and show that they are incompatible with biblical truth.
The film is available on DVD for just $15! Get yours here while supplies last!
2. EVOLUTION VS GOD – (FREE!) Hear expert testimony from leading evolutionary scientists from some of the world’s top universities:
• Peter Nonacs, Professor, Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, UCLA
• Craig Stanford, Professor, Biological Sciences and Anthropology, USC
• PZ Myers, Associate Professor, Biology, University of Minnesota Morris
• Gail E. Kennedy, Associate Professor, Anthropology, UCLA
3. DARWIN ON THE ROCKS – Join the International Director of Creation Research, John Mackay, as we travel the globe collecting the evidence from Creation to the fall, to the flood and beyond. God’s Word has told us that the evidence is so clear it can be seen and understood, so that none have any excuse. See it for yourself on this great documentary.
