Stoning Creationists on the Age of Rocks

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

As biblical creationists, the rocks thrown at us are doubled. Not only do we deal with angry atheopaths, but from professing Christians who are trying to do God a favor by ridiculing and "refuting" creationist views. Apparently, God does not mean what he says, even when God wrote in stone that everything was created in six days.

Religious compromisers who support atheistic evolutionism often try to pose questions we cannot answer. Michael Roberts asked, was answered by CMI, but is unrepentant.

It is amazing how theistic evolutionists (TEs) and other old earth creationists (OECs) reject the Bible, preferring instead to use atheistic interpretations of evidence and phenomena against Bible-believing Christians, even dreaming up hybrid creation accounts so they can have both their naturalism and a pretense at believing the Bible. I have written about theistic evolutionists who are adored by atheists (see "Rocky Reefs, Autumn Leaves Without Fruit"), since atheism and evolutionism ride for the same brand (see "Why Orthodox Darwinism Demands Atheism").

People like to throw challenges to each other in the form of things like, "Ten Questions for [Your Group]". Christians will offer these to atheists and those in other false religions hoping to prompt thinking and to prick their consciences. Unfortunately, these are usually misguided and need to take a more presuppositional approach. TEs, OECs, and others take a naturalistic approach when they want to slap leather with biblical creationists, trying to dispel us of the notion that God's Word is true, and also trying to get us to saddle up and ride with the anti-creationist brand.

Michael Roberts is an OEC Anglican priest (read: not conservative) who has been riding the owlhoot trail, shouting at biblical creationists from a distance for years. His publication of "10 questions to ask a young earth creationist" in late 2018 attracted the attention of Steve Risner. He was also noticed by Creation Ministries International, who effectively exsanguinated his weak objections — repetitions and all. The article was split into two parts. You can read them at "10 answers from biblical creationists—Part 1" and "10 answers from biblical creationists—Part 2".

Roberts played the victim card in this post. I saw that Paul Braterman (who is a self-appointed censor, evolutionism evangelist, and bigot who uses bad logic like "Creationism and evolution – why do some people deny more than two centuries of science, and how do we reach out to them?", conflating science with evolution) had to join in. They said CMI "attacked" Roberts, but instead, CMI gave logical answers to his "10 questions" article.

The weblog comments read like a support group. They are also full of bad logic and misrepresentation while they evosplain why we are "wrong" — no surprise there. Atheist Braterman took some biblical material, saying, "You do your best to sow wisdom, but some seed falls on very stony ground". Not hardly! Unbelievers are enemies of God (James 4:4, Phil. 3:18, 2 John 1:7) who need to repent. We do not need what passes for wisdom in the minds of God-rejecting secularists or compromisers (1 Cor. 3:19, Rom. 11:33, 1 Cor. 1:20).  Wisdom and knowledge are in Christ (Col. 2:3, Prov. 1:7), not the philosophies of those who suppress the truth in unrighteousness (Rom. 1:18-23).

It is because of professing Christians like Roberts and his ilk who attempt to undermine biblical truth and our faith that creation ministries are needed. You may want to read this article about the mental starting points of OECs. Yeah, we've seen the evolutionist "message of hope", and evolutionism is an abomination. We stand on the Rock of Ages.
