Agnosticism: Still boring and useless! Google Trend and Google Ngram data

We all know that atheism and Darwinist pseudoscience are both useless and deadly boring (see: Darwinism is stale and boring) .

Below is some data from Google trends showing that world interest in agnosticism is going down (please allow a little time for the graph below to load on this web page):

Mark these words down agnostics: 2014 is going to be the WORST year in the history of agnosticism!  And 2014 is going to be the best year that global Christianity/creationism have ever had in their respective histories. See: Explosive growth of global Christianity/creationism

Google N-Gram Data for Agnosticism

The Google Ngram produces graphs of how frequently words/phrases are used in the  5.2 million books digitized by Google Inc.  The database covers books from 1800 to 2008 A.D.

The Google Ngram data for agnosticism:

Meanwhile, the Bible outsells all other books on the planet! Over 100 million copies of the Bible are sold or given away every year.

If only agnosticism was like Christianity and had an abundance of exciting evidence showing it was a credible worklview (See:  Evidence for Christianity ).   Instead agnosticism is as exciting as a bucket of manure and unfortunately for agnosticism,  a bucket of manure is more valuable and has more practical uses.

Evolution's Achilles' Heels

Saturday, January 25, 2014

Peer-reviewed mainstream science journal says Darwinism "Has Pretty Much Reached the End of its Rope". How will Darwinism completely die off?

Evolution News published an article on February 6, 2012 entitled Peer-Reviewed Paper Concludes that Darwinism "Has Pretty Much Reached the End of Its Rope" which declared:
An interesting paper was recently published by David Depew and Bruce Weber in the journal Biological Theory. The paper bears the title "The Fate of Darwinism: Evolution After the Modern Synthesis." Its abstract summarizes the article's contents:
We trace the history of the Modern Evolutionary Synthesis, and of genetic Darwinism generally, with a view to showing why, even in its current versions, it can no longer serve as a general framework for evolutionary theory. The main reason is empirical. Genetical Darwinism cannot accommodate the role of development (and of genes in development) in many evolutionary processes. We go on to discuss two conceptual issues: whether natural selection can be the "creative factor" in a new, more general framework for evolutionary theorizing; and whether in such a framework organisms must be conceived as self-organizing systems embedded in self-organizing ecological systems....
The second point of interest is the paper's claim that "Darwinism in its current scientific incarnation has pretty much reached the end of its rope." Furthermore, as the authors argue,
...it is largely because Lamarckism, saltationist (sudden) mutationism, and inner-driven orthogenesis, to name the most enduring alternative traditions in evolutionary biology, failed to become mathematized empirical sciences with at least a foothold on value-neutrality that Darwinism still rules the evolutionary roost

If you still have any doubts that evolutionism is intellectually dead, then I highly suggest reading this work on the origin of life: Origin of life

Isn't is curious that the peer-reviewed Journal of Creation has never said that biblical creationism is nearly at the end of its rope, but a secular mainstream science journal recently said that Darwinism is "nearly at the end of its rope"?

Having a hard time breathing Mr. Darwinist now that the trap door has been released on the Darwinism gallows?  The reason I ask is that you are at the end of your rope and not merely near the end of your rope! It is no coincidence that you cannot satisfactorily answer the 15 Questions for evolutionists because you are most certainly at the very end of your rope and having great difficulty justifying your pseudoscience in your own mind and in the minds of well-informed creationists.

So how will Darwinism completely die off?

Barring the second coming of Christ, Darwinism will probably completely die off thusly:

1. Western Christians must significantly  increase the dissemination of their message. This is already happening via the 3 largest creationist organizations and other creationist organizations, but it needs to be done to a much greater extent and I see this beginning to  happen.  However,  Darwinism is not going down without a fight and Darwinists will endeavor to brainwash young people to a greater degree.  Christians must not take this lying down.

2. Liberalism which ideologically and financially supports Darwinism is beginning to show signs of financial strain (Eurocrisis, gargantuan 17 trillion dollar Federal government debt load in the United States which continues to climb, etc.).  This financial house of cards could collapse anytime now. But even if it does not collapse,  there is definitely going to be serious austerity measures being forced onto the Western World within a generation.

This is going to impact the funding of pro-evolution public schools and universities which are currently churning out many unemployable young people with useless degrees who are not ready for a very competitive job market. Private religious schools educate students more economically and do a better job of creating productive citizens. Expect to see the trend of more vouchers for religious schools and the trend of a growing homeschooling movement continue.   See:  Coming public school funding crisis and Private schools are more cost-effective

Question: How many cases of students engaging in murderous rampages do you see in Christian schools? Answer: None! Darwinists cannot say the same about the pro-evolution  public schools.

3. Global creationism is growing fast.  Creationist immigrants are flowing into Europe. In France,  evangelicalism was recently named the fastest growing religion by scholars. Meanwhile, global atheism/agnosticism have been shrinking for about 10 years.  See: Global Christianity vs. global atheism/agnosticism

Will Darwinism completely die off?

Since Darwinism is intellectually already dead, it comes down  to creationist getting out their message in bigger and bigger ways, the Darwinist old guard dying off and Darwinist pseudoscience continuing to be debunked through new scientific findings.  The Christian church killed off the Roman gods. It can kill off Darwinism as well.  Christians, will you take part in this process of destroying Darwinism? Start spreading the creationist message today if you have not started already.  Ask your friends to take the Question Evolution! quiz.  Much work needs to be done and Christians cannot afford to be complaisant.

Evolution's Achilles' Heels

Creationists continue to celebrate The Daily Beast's candid submission that "2013 was a terrible year for evolution". Evolutionists, 2014 is going to be even a WORSE year for Darwinism!

Evolutionists, mark this down: 2014 is going to be even a WORSE year in the history of Darwinism! I guarantee it! 

If we use recent history as a guide, no doubt biblical creationists are going to roll out some glorious pro-creation and anti-evolution campaigns in 2014. It is going to be tremendous. One thing I am looking forward to though is the Evolution's Achilles' heels campaign

There are going to be a lot of limping evolutionists in 2014!

The pro-evolution news website The Daily Beast declares "2013 Was a Terrible Year for Evolution". Meanwhile, global evangelicalism is G-R-O-W-I-N-G!

On January 2, 2013, a leading news website The Daily Beast, which is a liberal leaning pro-evolution website, declared that:

2013 Was a Terrible Year for Evolution

Never mind the increasing evidence—64 percent of white evangelical Protestants reject the science, and professors at Christian colleges are attacked if word gets out they teach it.
Evolution did not fare well in 2013. The year ended with the anti-evolution book Darwin’s Doubt as Amazon’s top seller in the “Paleontology” category.
Americans entered 2013 more opposed to evolution than they have been for years, with an amazing 46 percent embracing the notion that “God created humans pretty much in their present form at one time in the last 10,000 years or so.” This number was up a full 6 percent from the prior poll taken in 2010. According to a December 2013 Pew poll, among white evangelical Protestants, a demographic that includes many Republican members of Congress and governors, almost 64 percent reject the idea that humans have evolved.
Darwinists, this Question Evolution! Campaign blog predicted that 2013 would be the WORST year in the history of Darwinism and a leading pro-evolution news website echos that 2013 was a BAD year for Darwinism.

 A review of Darwin's Doubt: “It’s hard for us paleontologists to admit that neo-Darwinian explanations for the Cambrian explosion have failed miserably....Meyer describes the dimensions of the problem with clarity and precision. His book is a game changer.” (Dr. Mark Menamin, paleontologist at Mt. Holyoke College and coauthor of The Emergence of Animals)

Why is it hard for Darwinian paleontologists to admit they failed miserably to explain the Cambrian explosion? According to Darwinists, the the evolutionist scientific community goes where the evidence leads and evolutionary "science" is self-correcting! 

How is global biblical creation belief doing? 

In the summer of 2012, it was reported by Australia's Church Missionary Society that since 1989 Christianity’s has seen its most widespread growth ever and that evangelicalism is now a truly worldwide movement. See: Global Evangelicalism: 3 aspects of growth

In 2009, evangelicalism was growing fast in 40 countries. See: Evangelical growth. Generally speaking, evangelical Christians are much more likely to be biblical creationists.  Even in some secular countries like the Czech Republic evangelicalism was reported to be growing in 2009.  See: Evangelical growth   

Operation World declared that there were about 550 million evangelicals worldwide in 2010 and the World Christian Database said there were 700 million "Great Commission Christians". 

The Lausanne Movement declares concerning Operation World's (OW) estimate:
OW’s theologically-based estimate of 550 million evangelicals is significantly higher than the WCD’s structural estimate of 300 million. However, other categories of the WCD must be taken into consideration, namely, 600 million Pentecostal/Charismatics and 700 million Great Commission Christians, all of whom may overlap with the Evangelical total. OW’s total falls between the WCD’s estimates for Great Commission Christians and Evangelicals.
In 2012, French scholars said evangelicalism is likely the fastest growing religion in France.

The British scholar and agnostic Eric Kaufmann told a secular audience in Australia about the global resurgence of religion (particularly theologically conservative religion): "The trends that are happening worldwide inevitably in an age of globalization are going to affect us."
