This speaks for itself

Answers in Genesis have probably outdone themselves with this one. We won't even bother to debunk it, it seems almost self debunking!

From here. Our emphasis.
Are YOU Evolutionized?

by David WrightJuly 9, 2007

Evolution can become so ingrained in our thinking that we don’t even notice it. Our government schools and universities are entrenched in evolution, from biology to philosophy and even English class. There is no escaping evolution after we graduate, either. We encounter it in the newspaper, on the radio, on television, and in blockbuster movies. So, how do you know if you’ve been evolutionized? Here are a few questions to find out:
  • Are tribes in the South American rain forest more primitive forms of humans than we are?
  • Did dinosaurs live before humans?
  • Were the people who lived in caves and used simple tools not very intelligent?
  • Did Noah lack special tools or equipment to build the Ark?
  • Are the stars older than the earth?
  • Is there more than one race?
  • Does it take millions of years to form fossils, oil, coal, or diamonds?
  • Did Adam have to learn how to speak, read, and write after he was created?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you’ve been evolutionized to some degree, and the more times you responded “yes,” the more evolution impacts your thinking. Evolutionary teaching so permeates our culture that it can affect every area of our thinking, including what we believe about the Bible. This sort of evolutionized thinking has even permeated our churches.

That is why it is more important than ever for Christians to be discerning and weigh every thought against the truths revealed in God’s Word. If you examine each question more closely, you will see how your answers must be different from evolutionists’ if you start with God’s Word.

It is the duty of Christians to “demolish arguments ... and take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ” (2 Corinthians 10:5, NIV).


  1. Hmm, I'm evidently not totally evolutionised yet because I don't accept their assumption that evilutionist=racist. Pot, kettle, black. I also wonder what people in caves they have in mind. And I must answer "no" to the Noah question - he neither had nor needed tools because there never was any Ark. While I suppose the plot required that Adam could talk at some point, is it ever asserted that he could read and write? (I honestly don't know.) If so, what language, what script, what on and what with?

  2. This article was written by a layman. It lacks scientific or theological precision, and logical flow of thought.

    For that reason it is a poor article to hold up here to counter Creationism. It doesn't.

    It actually achieves little in either direction, of course.
