Responding to Protestors’ Propaganda

The efforts of protestors played a part in helping the Creation Museum’s opening be more publicized than we expected. Of course, the protestors outside the museum gates wanted a different reaction. They “meant evil . . . but God meant it for good, in order to bring it about as it is this day, to save many people alive” (Genesis 50:20).

The protestors, organized by a group known as Rally for Reason, distributed a flyer designed by DefCon titled “The Top 10 reasons why the Universe, the Sun, the Earth, and Life are NOT 6,000 years old: A Primer.” Although the handout is impressive looking, what is really the substance of it? Each alleged piece of evidence for billions of years they present is interpreted from their naturalistic worldview with the assumption that the universe is billions of years old . . . that is circular reasoning.

  • Picking and Choosing Evidence
    June 5, 2007

    Archaeological evidence provides information about many post-Babel civilizations, but constructing a timeline without a direct eyewitness elicits imagination.

  • Evolution—A Framework in Which to Interpret Evidence
    June 5, 2007

    Creationists agree that the diversity of life changes over time, but only in thousands of years and by variation within kinds.

  • Unreasonable Reliance on Dating Methods
    June 4, 2007

    The “geologic timescale” is full of assumptions and the timescale has changed drastically over the past 150 years.

  • An Example of Circular Reasoning
    June 4, 2007

    The fossil record is more like a record of the effects of sin when the Flood demolished the vast majority of life on earth, creating massive fossil graveyards.

  • Shining Right Away
    June 2, 2007

    When God created the sun, it was shining right away—not because the photons had taken a long time to travel from the core, but because God made the sun hot!

  • Uniformity or Catastrophe?
    June 2, 2007

    Most creation scientists agree that the continents were probably once together, for the most part, in a super-continent based on Genesis 1:9.

  • Light Travel-Time Problems
    June 1, 2007

    Several assumptions underly the claim that supernovae tens of thousands of light years away indicate an old universe.

  • Radiometric Dating—Not Infallible
    June 1, 2007

    There are plenty of indications that these radiometric dating methods are not as infallible as they would have you believe!

  • The Big Bang—A Hypothesis
    May 31, 2007

    The big bang is not an observable event that scientists can duplicate in the lab. It is a hypothesis about how the universe came to be.

  • Are All Stars Within 6,000 Light Years of Earth?
    May 31, 2007

    Light years are a measure of distance, not time. Apparently this argument attempts to insinuate that we believe the stars are only 6,000 light years away.

  • Rallying for Reason?
