If Your Church is Celebrating Darwin, Leave (and Donít Come Back)

The 200th anniversary of the birth of devoted Materialist and Evolutionist Charles Darwin was in 2009. It was that year that I first became aware of “Evolution Weekend.” Originally “Evolution Sunday,” Evolution Weekend is the product of The Clergy Letter Project. This project exists to promote the teaching of Darwinian evolution, especially within religious institutions. For example, the letter to Christian clergy, in part, reads,

"While virtually all Christians take the Bible seriously and hold it to be authoritative in matters of faith and practice, the overwhelming majority do not read the Bible literally, as they would a science textbook…Religious truth is of a different order from scientific truth. Its purpose is not to convey scientific information but to transform hearts..."

First of all, a common criticism from Darwinists of all flavors—from the true believers: ardent atheists, to the spongy “theistic evolutionists” (ironically seen as heretics by the faithful on both sides of the evolution debate)—is that Christians who accept the biblical account of the origin of mankind are making the mistake of reading the Bible (especially Genesis) “literally.”

God created the heavens and the Earth, everything we can see and everything we can’t.

Once you get past that astounding fact, isn’t the question of exactly how He did it or how long He took sort of...secondary?

In over one hundred fifty years, the scientific community has NOT uncovered evidence of the missing link.. Yet MANY scientists have tried to hoax us with 'irrefutable proof' ... which they all claimed was 'skeletal evidence' of Darwinism, and its ridiculous claims!
