REVOLUTION AGAINST EVOLUTION FOURTH EDITION 2020
There seems to always be a need for an easy-to-read general purpose creationist book targeted toward high school students that is up to date. In 1986, the first edition of Revolution Against Evolution was published and 2,500 copies were distributed, though it was initially designed for a Bible Training Institute class. It was reprinted in 1993 and in 2013 it was updated and made into an e-book. Now, we have re-edited this book and brought it up to date with the current creationist research. Most of the arguments presented in the original book remain effective, and speculations originally made have been confirmed with more thorough research and visits to the sites mentioned in the original. The new version will sell for $9.95 and the chapter titles are:
Order from Disorder
Historical Geology and Fault-Finding
Animals that Could not have Evolved
Proteins, DNA and the Cell
Which Model is Best?
The Stars and Planets
Evidence Versus Myths
Issues and Answers
FLIGHT FROM THE ABSOLUTE
Writing both in French and English, Paul Gosselin is an independent researcher specializing in ideologies, belief systems and religions. He holds a Masters in Social Anthropology and is the author of the French book, Hors du ghetto (on culture and the arts). His Flight From the Absolute series involved years of investigation into Western ideologies and belief systems, in particular, postmodernism. Gosselin has been known to make his own pizza and boeuf braisé from time to time… He has lived in Nova Scotia, California, Vancouver Island, Hull QC and currently resides in Quebec City. Paul discusses on Revolution Against Evolution the puzzle of postmodernism as the predominant philosophy in our culture. It has no rational basis, as it is a rejection of the Enlightenment concept of science as Truth as well as the Christianity as a basis for morality. It is a self-centered religion where truth is relative to a person’s whims and emotions.
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE CREATION MESSAGE IN INDIA
This is an interview with Kancherla Sirish, a school teacher in India who describes the importance of the Biblical message of creation to Christianity in India. Christians form a very small minority in India, and face some unique challenges in their culture in presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ. The majority of people in India are Hindu, and another minority religion is Islam. Hindus serve many different gods, and to them Jesus Christ is just one other god to add to the pantheon of gods they serve. In addition, they believe that theirs is the oldest religion going back many eons in time, and to them the evolutionary worldview is compatible with their Hindu religion. Sirish is instead teaching the Biblical model of creation and found support and comfort in the Revolution Against Evolution book that was sent to him in 2004.
GRAND CANYON GEOLOGY
We have made quite a number of trips to the Grand Canyon since the first one in 1999, but there are always new things to learn. There are two competing creationist models for the formation of the Grand Canyon, but they are quite similar. Dr. Stephen Austin proposed a breached dam that came from post flood lakes behind the canyon in the Navajo land. Michael Oard believes that sheet runoff after the flood caused a channel to be carved through the mountain. At the great unconformity near the bottom of the canyon, the bottom layers are tilted, then planed off smooth, and new layers deposited on top. The Devonian Temple Butte formation appears in some places, but in one place on the North Kaibab Trail, it is missing and the layers above and below are interbedded. In Sedona, the layers that appear at the Grand Canyon are 1,000 feet lower and the Schnebly Hill formation that forms the red rocks there is missing at the Grand Canyon. All of these anomalies are better explained in a catastrophic world-wide flood model.
CREATION TOURS IN SECULAR MUSEUMS
Steven Craig Policastro is president of the International Association for Creation, and he is organizing local creation groups to provide tours of local state and national museums from a creation perspective. This is becoming a very successful use of the educational materials provided to us through our tax dollars, and though our point of view differs from what is normally presented in these museums, he has not received much opposition to his tours. He has, however, prepared a statement that he will give to people who challenge his right to do so.
CARVED IN STONE BY TIMOTHY CLAREY – A BOOK REVIEW
Carved in Stone is Timothy Clarey’s March 2020 book release, and it is a massive, beautiful work outlining his case for Catastrophic Plate Tectonics, also known as CPT. Catastrophic Plate Tectonics is one of several creationist flood models that we describe in our updated book Revolution Against Evolution, and in our recently released version, we discuss CPT along with the hydroplate model, vertical tectonics, meteorite bombardment, the water vapor canopy theory, and the curious mention in Genesis of the division in the days of Peleg. All of these are discussed in Timothy’s book and is well worth the investment to read.
