So I took my granddaughter shopping last evening. When we arrived back to the car there’s a pamphlet under one of the windscreen wipers.
It boldly claims…THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS STATES: ENERGY CAN NEITHER BE CREATED OR DESTROYED
Therefore the Universe didn’t create itself.THE THEORY OF EVOLUTION
Says that everything goes from randomness to complexity.THE SECOND LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS
Says the opposite is the case.CARBON 14 DATING UNRELIABLE!!
A living snail was tested and the reading showed that it has been dead for 3000years!MOON-WALKERS DON’T SINK INTO HUNDREDS OF FEET OF MOON DUST!
Surprisingling, they found about ½ inch on the moon, showing that we have a very young moon of about 6000 years old!APE-MEN FRAUDS!!Pithecanthropus erectus
was found to be a gibbon. Pitdown man
(built up on a jaw bone of a modern ape and a human skull) and Peking man similarly were found to be frauds. Nebraska man
was based on a single tooth imagined to belong to a human skull. It was later proven to belong to a pig. FOSSIL RECORD EMBARRASSES SCIENCE! THERE IS NONE!
Darwin said that the fossil record would bear him out, yet more than 100 years after his death no one can find any “half fossils”. Where are the alligators with wings or the ducks with feet. THE LAWS OF HEREDITY
weren’t discovered at the time the theory of evolution was proposed in the mid1800s. These laws show that characteristics are passed from parents to offspring according to precise mathematical ratios unlike the random processes of evolution.TWO STARVING SHIPWRECKED SAILORS
were washed up on an island. After trudging in the hot sun for several hours, one saw a car half-hidden in the jungle. Excitedly, he yelled “Eureka! Someone lives on the island.” To which the other replied; “Nah! Don’t be stupid, the car just evolved by itself!”

Now apart from the obvious nonsense in this pamphlet, I was surprised to see that this supposed means of introducing Christ to the lost only had a brief mention of the Saviour on the back page with a couple of bible verses and some confused gobbledygook about *truth*. Included was an additional page claiming that there being no errors in the King James bible and instructions on how to avoid going to hell by praying the Salvation prayer they supplied. All in all, the message of the Gospel, seemingly nothing more than an addendum, was obscured by two obsessions; evolution and the rightness of the King James. And obviously, the pamphlet distributors had never visited Answers in Genesis where they would have received advice not to use arguments (I use the term euphemistically) that aren't honest, intellectually sound, logical, and the result of scientific research.
Now I agree that not much can be done to "spread the word" in a pamphlet like this; so if one is going to the trouble and expense of doing this sort of thing why not simply spread the word about Christ, (and I commend anyone for doing that) instead of obsessing over personal hobby horses?
