Dumb Things Christians Believe - The World Mocks God's Word

Darwin's 200th anniversary, Hebrews 11:3, Creation, Mockers
Newsweek magazine mocks Christian belief in our Creator...

In 2010, the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin's birth, Newsweek published a list called "Dumb Things Americans Believe" and creation was on that list.

A Gallup poll that year had shown that 25% of Americans still don't believe in evolution.

There are many reasons (scientific and theological) to reject evolution, but the most compelling reason for Christians is this: 


The Bible says God created the world "very good" and death, decay, and pain came AFTER the fall of man because of man's sin. Evolutionists believe millions of years of death, decay and pain preceded the presence of man on earth. 

Evolution's acceptance is not based on logic or science. It's based on man's inclination to trust the theories of man more than the teachings of God (1 Corinthians 2:6-16). 

For "by faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible" (Hebrews 11:3). 

We all have faith in something, some of us in God, and some of us in man. Now which sounds dumbest to you?

  1. I think it takes more faith to believe in evolution than it does to believe in creation, lol! If an auto store had an explosion it would not make a car, right?

    It's amazing how science "proves" the missing link and then later that link turns out to be the part of an arthritic cow instead of a person or something, lol!

    Just popping back over to say that the new "Making Your Home Sing Monday" linky party is now live and ready for your posts! http://www.momstheword--livingforhim.blogspot.com/2013/06/when-your-husband-wont-pick-up-after.html

    1. Yes, Nan, like so many other things in our world, it is really a matter of faith. Science does not prove evolution.

  2. Great post Gail! I was just reading about this very subject today on the website of Pastor Greg Laurie, I wanted to share an excerpt from it with you,

    To say that all of the beauties of God's creation came about randomly is ridiculous. The person who believes in the theory of evolution makes a choice to believe it. I believe they make that choice because the lifestyle they want to live has no place for God. If there is a Creator, then there is a God. If there is God, then there is a Judge. If there is a Judge, then there is a judgment. And if there is a judgment, they will have to stand there one day. So they have to try to find a way to write God out of the script - Greg Laurie

    Be blessed!

    1. Yes, Diana, I believe that Satan is behind this theory that has so confused and twisted modern man's thinking. And I believe it is convenient for many in our culture who want to be free of God's principles and morals.

      Unfortunately, there are also many people mislead without understanding that evolution is faith-based, not science-based. In fact, one study showed that many Christians believe God could have used evolution to create. We really need to understand that it is not science vs. faith. It is faith vs. faith.

      Thanks for your comment.
