Charles Darwin is Still Haunting

Have you ever been haunted? I have. Charles Darwin haunts me. Don't get me wrong, I have never seen a ghost (or a flying saucer, for that matter), and reject the idea that they are the spirits of the departed who come a-calling. For information on those specific topics, I refer you to "Are Ghosts Real?", follow-up, "Ghosts, Experience, and the Bible" and "Aliens, Evolution and the Occult".

Like so many other words that are bandied about, "ghost", "spirit" and "haunt" have different meanings based on the context. I am haunted by the ghost of Darwin, and also by versions of his worldview, evolutionism. Everywhere you go, you can't escape the spirit of evolutionism. (There, you have to rely on the context to get a handle on those words.)

I'll be watching at TV documentary about cats, and they drop in that "it evolved this feature", so the spirit of evolution appears. Some entertainment piece, and guess what? Those owlhoots must feel compelled to shove in some "fact" about evolution that has nothing to do with the story. (Naturally, there are science fiction stories that are dedicated entirely to the subject, but some of us can suspend disbelief and watch the show anyway.) Over and over, evolution is assumed to be true and presented as incontrovertible fact, whether on . Of course, evidence against it and disagreements among evolutionary scientists are omitted. The truth of the Creator is simply left out as well.

Evolutionism is a worldview, and treated like a religion with Darwin as a religious figure. Don't believe me? Post a joke about Darwin, or even a quote where he admits flaws in his hypothesis, and the Evo Sith come riding at you like an unholy cavalry charge to protect the object of their adoration. Look around at all of the Darwin and evolution pictures, anti-Christian images (like the Jesus fish symbol with legs, for one), public events (even government sanctioned, but the "separation of church and state does not apply because humanistic religions are favored), textbooks, artwork and so much more — but contrary evidence is censored; "science" must be "protected". Praise to Darwin and his wonderful theory! Darwin's spirit is haunting us everywhere. Bible-believing Christians and creation science ministries are working hard to negate that phantom, despite the further apostasy of Pope Francis.

Worst of all, Darwin's haunting the church, intimidating and deceiving people into compromise. Some of us hold to the authority of Scripture, not the ever-changing whims of man-made science philosophies. Here's an article that covers that church-haunting aspect quite well. It was written a while back, so a couple of references to events and things that are going to happen, have already happened. But that little thing doesn't ruin the rest of it.
On February 12, 1809, in the modest town of Shrewsbury, England, Susannah Darwin gave birth to her now-famous son Charles in their family home called The Mount.

Darwin’s Presence Where He Was Born
That was roughly 200 years ago, yet as you walk through the town of Shrewsbury, you sense Darwin’s influence (his “ghost”) all around. Darwin Street, Darwin Terrace, Darwin House, Darwin Gardens, and the Darwin Shopping Center are just a few of the landmarks that honor and immortalize this man.

Andy Stanley, Frank Turek, and Bad Theology

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Andy Stanley has been disappointing some people, and causing quite a few to be alarmed by his opposition to the authority of Scripture. (Note: Do not be confused.  Charles  Stanley is his father, senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Atlanta, Georgia, and heard on In Touch Ministries . I've found most of his teachings to be doctrinally sound, and he upholds the inerrancy and authority of the Bible.) Unfortunately, megachurch director Andy Stanley has been saying things that are destructive to the truth, including recommending the false teaching of theistic evolution. Gray wolf image credit: US National Park Service While shooting from the hip can be a good thing, someone claiming the title of pastor should reign himself in . Stanley was disrespectful of small churches, then apologized later . In another instance, " What  did he just say?", Stanley may have used a very bad word in a sermon.

A Cowboy Bible?

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen Before I get going on this, I'd better clarify something, even though many of my regular readers (and podcast interview listeners) know: my "cowboy" moniker is not earned. It's a nickname I picked up a few years ago, and it shows my cowboy attitude. I don't know nothin' 'bout no hayburners; tell me to saddle up a horse and ride, I'd probably get kicked, fall off, and land in poo. So, I need a guide. Yes, I lived in the West — the west side of Michigan. Anyway, being a cowboy at heart has helped me get things done. My father had a cowboy attitude as well, which is something I learned from testimonials at his funeral. Anyway, adding some Western-style lingo in posts and articles adds color and personality, I reckon, even though I usually have a conversational style for the most part. Assembled from components at Clker Clip Art A while back, I was looking for cowboy Bibles and came across the " Simplified Cowboy Versio

Poor Excuses for Rejecting Creation

So often with various kinds of conversion experiences where people get all worked up about something — then the excitement cools. Books are untouched on the shelves, no interest in lectures (videos or otherwise), but they have a smattering of knowledge. Image source before modification: Pixabay /  Spencer Wing This is especially sad when someone believes in Jesus Christ but then falls away (Matt. 13:18-23). In a similar way, someone can become excited about biblical creation science but get discouraged and distracted by philosophies, intimidated by militant atheists, harassed by college professors, teased by friends, and so on. There are some who claim to be "former creationists" that have saddled up to ride with the Old Earth brand (or even with professing atheists), but when they have discussions with knowledgeable creationists, it is discovered that they only had superficial knowledge of biblical creation science. Worse, their theology (which is intertwined with it) is als
