OK


Here are 5 of them.


1)  Evolutionists would rather attack them, than debate them (Creationists).

Evolutionists claim that evolution is a scientific fact, but they almost always lose scientific debates with creationist scientists. Accordingly, most evolutionists now decline opportunities for scientific debates, preferring instead to make unilateral attacks on creationists.
   Scientists should refuse formal debates because they do more harm than good, but scientists still need to counter the creationist message.[3]
The question is, just why do they need to counter the creationist message? Why are they so adamantly committed to anti-creationism?

2)  Science can not prove the existence of cavemen.

It is almost entertaining to consider the lengths evolutionary scientists go to prove the existence of prehistoric cavemen. They find a misshapen tooth in a cave and from that create a misshapen human being who lived in a cave, hunched over like an ape. There is no way that science can prove the existence of cavemen by a fossil. Evolutionary scientists simply have a theory, and then they force the evidence to fit the theory. Adam and Eve were the first human beings ever created and were fully-formed, intelligent, and upright.

3)  Evolutionists, secularists, atheists hate them (Creationists).

Yes, it’s sad to read the ignorant, mocking, and attacking comments that were posted to this item. But it does illustrate the hatred many of these secularists have for Christians.

You see, the atheists are actually insecure in their beliefs. Not only that, but atheists in many ways have managed to censor information concerning creation from the public -- they have been involved in getting legislation to protect the teaching of evolution in public schools and thus stop students from even hearing about creation. These secularists do not want people hearing about the evidence that confirms the creation account in the Bible.

Now that a well-respected personality like Bill Nye will be debating me on the origins topic, many of these atheists are worried. They just do not want people to hear such a debate! But why would they be so worried if it is so obvious that evolution is true?

4)  Socialism requires that government becomes your God.

When you hear this attack on religion, it's not really an attack on religion. The fundamental basis is this. Socialism requires that government becomes your God. That's why they have to destroy your concept of God. They have to destroy all your loyalties except loyalty to the government. That's what's behind homosexual marriage. It's really more about the destruction of the traditional family than about homosexuality, because you need also to destroy loyalty to the family.

5)  Evolution is a Religion; so preventing the teaching of Creationism is unconstitutional.

By the same token, if secularists or others want to have only evolution taught, they should establish private humanistic schools for that purpose. For evolutionists to insist that their evolutionary religion should be subsidized by the taxes of creationists is both arrogant and unconstitutional.

As I asserted in this post's title:  Creationists say the Darnest Things.

Just my opinion, some observations -- not "provable" facts, at least not provable by me (as commenters in my posts often demand of me).  To my evidence-demanding critics, this I will fully disclaim: "providing absolute proof, on anything, is not in my wheel-house."  These blockquotes are meant merely to promote further thought, and hopefully more insightful humanity-building discussions.

But these "darn" examples, which I found rather quickly, are also posted as "barometric observations" of the cultural "victimization wars" now brewing in America's once-grand melting pot. Things that some Creationists have said, which often portray them (Creationists) as the aggrieved victims, in some secret Secular War, being aggressively waged against them, and their very "creative" brand of Christianity, time and time again.  ... Often bringing with it, the incendiary charge that "Secular Progressives" are denying them "their Liberties."

Another "unprovable" charge I would assert, that intentionally distorts and misrepresents the plain civil melting-pot facts.  But that is a post for another day.


Regarding the current, persecutory framing, which will no doubt precede the upcoming Debate:

I for one, hope the Bill Nye the Science Guy, hands Ken Ham the Creationist Guy -- his pompous hat!  I for one hope Mr Nye ignores the house rules, requesting him to check-your-brain-at-the-door, in this 'duel of religious belief systems', darned Debate.

For the sake of Freedom of Speech; for the sake of the Pursuit of Science ... among other things, I hope Science kicks Creation's watery, deep foundations ... as it was once, historically put.
