Evolution Weekend… Who Needs It?

Dr. Michael Zimmerman, the atheist who started the pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project and Evolution Weekend, has written a new post at the liberal Huffington Post called, Evolution Weekend: Now More Than Ever! He begins his post with blatant misinformation: “For the past 11 years, hundreds of religious congregations, congregations from a wide array of religious persuasions…

The Greatest Story Ever Told Versus The Greatest Story Ever Sold

Another Superbowl Sunday has come and gone, but a far more significant battle is going on next Sunday – a battle for our very pulpits! Creation Weekend 2017 is quickly approaching. For those who aren’t aware, every year atheist Dr Michael Zimmerman, the fellow behind the pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project, encourages churches to celebrate an…

Pig in a Poke: Why Evolution Weekend Fails As An Example of Reasoned, Civil Discourse

Atheist Michael Zimmerman is promoting his Evolution Weekend as an example of reasoned, civilized discourse. Writing for the HuffPo, Zimmerman claims that: “Thousands upon thousands of Christian clergy members, from Baptists to Quakers and from Methodists to Episcopalians, Lutherans, Roman Catholics and many more, have stated as clearly as possible that their religion and modern…

Evolution versus Christianity: Why You Really Do Have to Choose

I once said God could have used evolution and that we had to allow for long ages in the days of the Creation Week. The following excerpt from my book, Defending Genesis: How We Got Here & Why It Maters, explains my dilemma at that point and why we really do have to choose between the authority of God’s Word and the claims of men who’ve interpreted the evidence by science chained to pure naturalism, despite claims to the contrary by Michael Zimmerman and BioLogos.

On the Compatibility of Christian Faith & Evolution: Which Atheist is Lying To Us?

This weekend, atheist Dr. Michael Zimmerman is once again encouraging churches to preach Darwin from their pulpits. He claims that his Clergy Letter Project, signed by over 12,000 members of predominantly liberal clergy, shows that evolution and Christianity are compatible so long as we define religious truth as dealing with doctrine and morality and scientific…

Evolution Weekend 2012 Is Pretty Much A Bust Here In West Virginia

It just ain’t happening, folks. On a whim, I decided to call all of the congregations from right here in West Virginia who were slated to participate in atheist Dr. Michael Zimmerman’s infamous Evolution Weekend to confirm whether they were in fact participating. I hadn’t heard anything [at all] from the seven churches and synogogues…

Ark Wars: More Willful Ignorance About Dinosaurs, Noah’s Ark and the Ark Encounter

As most of you know, I debunked a rather poorly-conceived video on YouTube in which humanist Barry Lynn of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State attacked the up-coming Ark Encounter attraction. Lynn condescendingly referred to the Ark Encounter as the “Ark Park” and offered mockery and misinformation. Here’s how Lynn described it: “…I got into a…

Have Biblical Creationists Abandoned Orthodox Christianity? A Response to Jonathan Dudley’s ‘Christian Faith Requires Accepting Evolution’

Jonathan Dudley, author of a book called ‘Broken Faith: The Abuse of Science and Faith in American Politics,’ has written a piece over at the liberal HuffPo called “Christian Faith Requires Accepting Evolution.” It’s not just the grandaddy of non sequitur – it’s just plain wrong! And it’s too obviously a plug for his new book,…
