THEISTIC EVOLUTIONISTS’ ATTEMPT FAILS as THEOS, a ‘public theology think tank’ funded by the Bible Society, finally publish a 152 page report on UK creationists called “Doubting Darwin”. THEOS’ Nick Spencer states in his foreword “THEOS openly adheres to a position of theistic evolution”. In spite of this he does admit that, “For those who have publicly argued that belief in God and belief in Darwinian evolution are compatible, some of the findings in Doubting Darwin will make uncomfortable reading. The report was funded by the Templeton Foundation, well known for its commitment to theistic evolution, but was carried out by an independent non-Christian group of researchers.

The final report reveals that creationists are not a bunch of incompetent fundamentalists as often portrayed by their opponents, and that many of them state that it was the scientific evidence which convinced them evolution was wrong. The report also argues that the creationist message is very coherent, arising from a world view which is consistent, and based on biblical teaching. One section in particular reflects this as it puts forward a very accurate summary of the gospel, as illustrated in this
extract:

  “Many creationists, therefore, do not see the Fall as simply a historical account (although they would claim it is that) but as a fundamental part of a Christian worldview, with which evolution is incompatible not just at a factual level but also on a theological level. And there are theological reasons to doubt the veracity of evolution that go beyond the Fall presented in the text of Genesis and the Old Testament. The Fall also presents an understanding of humankind as having sinned and as needing salvation. This leads directly into the narrative of Jesus and his position as the saviour of mankind. In fact, the centrality of the Fall to this aspect of Christian theology means that creationists cannot see the account of Adam and his rebellion as merely metaphorical or symbolic.” (p54)

This is remarkably accurate given that the report’s authors were non-Christian. On the other hand, THEOS’ Nick Spencer’s admission that, “For those who have publicly argued that belief in God and belief in Darwinian evolution are compatible, some of the findings in Doubting Darwin will make uncomfortable reading,” will hopefully force the Bible Society and THEOS to face up to the inconsistencies of their own false teaching and hopefully result in them turning away from commitment to
Darwin’s world view, which included Darwin’s description of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a “damnable doctrine”.

Though representatives of many groups were interviewed by the researchers, the only creationist actually named in the report is John Mackay. To DOWNLOAD the full report click HERE
