With all the tax money spent to sell evolutionistic flimflam, why are only 5% really fooled?


Short Answer

Various polls give numbers around the 5% mark for naturalistic evolution, however that number may be artificially high due to peer pressure. Evolutionists tend to be quite coercive, belittling any who disagree. A higher percentage believe in theistic evolution. It seems that there are actually very few, much less than the 5% suggested by the polls, who think that they are descendants of fish. Evolutionists are exasperated by this, of course, knowing that they have owned the media and the schools for decades. Evolution isn't science.

Sadly, since the paragraph above was written, this statistic has changed and the Evolutionists have made headway. They did it by moving away from logic and moving toward emotional arguments, personal attacks, coercion, peer pressure, and rationalism. This is working for them.

Detailed Answer

You can see why the 5% are fooled. A full 5% of the population believe in evolution as it is taught in our schools. Another poll put that figure at 10% Whatever we hear repeatedly begins to seem to make sense. If we hear the same story over and over, we stop analyzing it... no matter how dumb it is.

The kind of evolution that is taught in the schools is very hard to believe. It defies the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Yet, a full 5% are fooled.

Sadly, some people have been brainwashed into holding onto ridiculous presuppositions/simple-minded assumptions. The assumptions are filters and a way to censor out any information that supports the existence of God. They set up a web of rules to filter out God. They will only accept those things that conform to Naturalism, materialism, and uniformitarianism. Naturalism claims that God does nothing. Materialism claims that there is no God or spiritual realm. Uniformitarianism claims that there was not creation and that there was no violent worldwide flood, as the Bible and numerous other historical accounts record. Whatever they observe that does not conform to this complex filter is censored. The way that it is censored can take several forms. The ungodly may boldly proclaim that, though the data appears to support God's version and refute the version of the ungodly, yet it still must be interpreted to mean just the opposite of what it does mean. A backup method that ungodly people use is to prophecy that in the future, science will be able to explain what they see as an anomaly. If that fails, they will hide the data, set it aside, or lie to keep the public from knowing the truth. The data clearly demolishes the story of the ungodly and clearly supports the reality of the Creator God, His Bible, and His abiding Presence in His people. When confronted with the obvious, a closed-minded ungodly person says, "I can't understand it." They are willingly ignorant because they refuse to hold God in their knowledge. The reality is that these people, for whatever reason, don't what to know the Creator. They don't want to truly know Jesus, their Creator.

"Articles frequently appear in the evolutionary literature bemoaning the fact that creationist ideas simply won't die. Evolutionists have had near total dominance in education for decades, but people still don't accept evolution. "What are we doing wrong?" they ask. I think it's because they are trying to convince people of something that is foolish, offensive, and obviously wrong. Most people just aren't gullible enough to believe they came from a fish!"
Dr. John Morris, President of ICR.

Dr. Morris seems to suggest that the polls may yield an unrealistically high number, though. The numbers of 5% to 10% may be artificially produced by peer pressure and the idea that intellectuals all believe in evolution. Of course, the whole concept of the intellectual is a bit silly and pretentious, but it is human nature to be pretentious.

Very few people think they are the descendent of a fish as both theistic and naturalistic evolution claim. Even fewer think that they descended from a rock, as naturalistic and some theistic evolution also claims.

Consider the complexity of the atomic particles and the order of them. The New Agers and Secular Humanist Religionists in the public schools are teaching that these atomic particles somehow created themselves, while the first law of thermodynamics says that matter and energy cannot be created or destroyed. No exception to the First Law of Thermodynamics has ever been found.

The Evolutionists will tell you a half truth about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The Evolutionists will tell the half truth: "The Second Law of Thermodynamics only applies to isolated systems, so it's not relevant to evolution, because the Earth is an open system." This is a clever lie. Here is the part of the truth that they are withholding: the Second Law of Thermodynamics was derived using theoretical isolated systems, but it applies to all systems, and can only be overcome locally and temporarily in open systems when stringent conditions are met. Not only that, but we are not talking about the Earth. The Earth is just a subsystem of a much larger system called the Universe. The Universe is an isolated system. Evolutionists claim that Evolution took place in this isolated system, but the Second Law of Thermodynamics tells us that their story is a myth.

(More information on the Second Law of Thermodynamics can be found here & here & here & here & here)

(More information about the scientific Laws of information can be found in Without Excuse by Werner Gitt, a description of the scientific Laws of Universal Information. See also: Information Theory Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4. Here is another interesting article.) More is constantly being learned about information and about the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Evolutionists tend to hide in the weeds of the unknown with an argument from ignorance: "If you can't prove, by empirical science, that evolution is impossible, then it happened." By empirical science alone, we can only prove probabilities. The probabilities show the Big-Bang-Billions-of-Years-No-Flood-Molecules-to-Man story to be a bazaar hypothesis, a story that is so improbable that it should not be considered. However, empirical science is not a tool that can prove anything to be true or false absolutely. For absolute proof, we have revelation. God says that He created everything. He is the One Who enforces the laws of nature. He is the One Who will judge all of us in the end. We know that because we know Him presonally through the indwelling Presence of Jesus Christ and the moment-by-moment instruction of the Holy Spirit.

The New Agers and Secular Humanist Religionists also teach the idea that lower forms of animals have evolved into higher types of animals. Consider what they are saying. They are teaching that random chance can add to and organize the information in the DNA of a cell. That would be directly in conflict with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. The proven Second Law of Thermodynamics says that this cannot happen. No exception to the Second Law of Thermodynamics has ever been found. Evolution has a troubling information problem.

And these are only two of the many crazy fabrications that the New Agers and Secular Humanist Religionists present to students in an attempt to brainwash them into the Evolutionistic fantasy.

A much higher percentage, around 40%, of people fall for some version of the "God-guided-the-evolutionary-process" theory. That theory would not violate the First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics, but it does not fit the observed world around us. There is certainly no scientific evidence for that theory, though it is not as wild as the theory that is taught in the State's New Age and Secular Humanist School System. I suppose this theory would be used by those who don't want God to be in control. It could be a desperate move by those who don't completely want to deny that God exists but don't want to follow His ways as he laid them out in the Bible.

People may deny God to be politically correct, but they know in their minds that He exists, even if they don't personally know Him. That's why God says that they are without excuse.

Kind of makes you wonder about the other things they taught you in school, doesn't it? Makes you want to do a little research to see what real history and real social studies would be like.

Here's a hint. Check out what you learned in Health class. The things that they taught you there would either kill you or give you a miserable life. Hope you didn't listen to that junk.

Romans 1:19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God has showed it to them. 1:20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: You see? You know because God has showed it to you and to all of us.


Evolutionists, having almost total control of the media and the public schools for decades, are amazed that they can't seem to get more than about 5% of all people to say that they believe in naturalistic evolution.

"I am convinced that the battle for humankind's future must be waged and won in the public school classroom by teachers who correctly perceive their role as the proselytizers of a new [counterfeit "faith:"] a religion of humanity that recognizes and respects the spark of what theologians call divinity in every human being. These teachers must embody the same selfless dedication as the most rabid fundamentalist preachers, for they will be ministers of another sort, utilizing a classroom instead of a pulpit to convey humanist values in whatever subject they teach, regardless of the educational level preschool day care or large state university."
The Humanist, January/February 1983, "A Religion for a New Age."
