In response to the clergy letter project and evolution Sunday, we now have the creation letter project and creation Sunday:

Creationist response to the pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project
“If I told you earthly things, and you believe not, how shall you believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” –John 3:12

The pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project currently has a list of nearly 12,000 ministers who affirm that evolution is true and that the Genesis record is a teaching myth like Aesop’s Fables. Since 2006, they have successfully promoted the celebration of an Evolution Sunday in churches throughout the world. The Clergy Letter Project is often cast in the faces of Creationists to insinuate that we are merely a fringe element of Christianity, because there has not yet been an answer to their challenge. Our silence is used as an admission of our alleged irrelevance.

It is disgusting that this modern-day Goliath gets to mock the people of God, flaunting the compromise of some of our ministers as if it represented the majority opinion, with no answer in kind.

The Creation Letter Project now provides an opportunity for Christians, clergy and churches who affirm Biblical Creationism to answer the challenge that the Clergy Letter represents. Please read the Letter [below] and prayerfully add your signature if you agree with it:

“Observable, testable, repeatable science has brought us many benefits and innovations. The founders of modern science were Creationists, “thinking God’s thoughts after Him.” Most of the disciplines within science were founded before Darwin or by scientists who actually rejected his theory. The Scientific Method itself is based on the idea that an orderly creation can be rationally understood because it was designed by an Intelligent Creator. Creationists today continue to practice normal, experimental science without need of evolution.

Evolution is not observable, testable, repeatable science. It’s a belief about the past, an atheist Just-So Story seeking to displace the divinely revealed Creation record. It’s based on the flaw of naturalism, which begs that all problems must have a natural explanation, so God isn’t needed. This stands directly at odds with the Biblical claim that God’s existence, eternal power and Godhead are self-evident in His Creation, for it excludes an Intelligent Creator from all consideration. Faulty assumptions lead to faulty conclusions! Sadly, statistics demonstrate that children taught godless evolution as scientific truth reject religious truth wholesale! It’s time to judge this tree by its fruit!

The Bible stands as the inerrant, revealed Word of God. As such, the conclusions and speculations of fallible, finite men should be weighed in light of the revelation of an infallible, infinite God – not the other way ’round. Let God be true and every man a liar!

Some claim to take the Bible seriously but actually hold man’s word as their true authority, so long as it calls itself science; where it disputes the Genesis record, they denigrate the Word of God to mere Bible stories in the tradition of Aesop’s fables. After swallowing the camel of the Resurrection and supernatural miracles, they strain at the gnat of a historical Creation week.

We do not follow cleverly devised fables. While the Bible is NOT a science textbook, the Word of God is true and accurate in all it records. Jesus affirmed the truth and authority of God’s Word, mentioning Creation, Adam and Eve, Abel, Noah and Jonah as matters of fact. Though some object that religious truth is of a different order from scientific truth, Jesus refuted this false dichotomy when He asked Nicodemus, “If I have told you earthly things, and ye believe not, how shall ye believe, if I tell you of heavenly things?” [John 3:12] The very reason Jesus literally died and rose again is a world cursed by the literal Fall of a literal Adam!

We the undersigned affirm the truth of a Biblical, literal 6-day Creation and strongly discourage any Bible-believing Christian from endorsing or celebrating an Evolution Sunday. Evolution is a lie which undermines both Biblical authority and the foundational basis of the Gospel. We urge churches to send a clear message  of the enduring authority of God’s Word by celebrating a Creation Sunday instead of the Clergy Letter Project’s proposed Evolution Sunday. We urge school board members to fight for the integrity of our science curriculum by insisting that evolution’s mortal flaws be published. We ask that science remain science, so that truth may remain truth.”

*The Creation Letter Project is sponsored in part by the Kanawha Creation Science Group

If you agree with our mission, add your signature below!

Who Should Sign

1. If you are a Christian who believes in the literal, historical truth of Creation as related in Genesis, you should add your signature to let people know that there are Christians in your city and state who take a stand for Biblical innerancy.

2. If you are a member of the clergy who believes in our mission, you should add your signature to send a message that there are ministers in your city and state who believe in a literal, 6-day Creation. The pro-evolution Clergy Letter Project has nearly 12,000 signatures from members of clergy. We believe there are as many, if not more, who believe the truth of Biblical Creation and are willing to boldly stand up for that truth. If you are a member of clergy, please indicate that you are when you add your signature and we’ll add your name to the Clergy for Creation page.

3. If you are the pastor of a church who intends on holding a Creation Sunday, you should add your signature to let Christians in your area know that there is a house of worship in their area that will be doing so. If your church will be having a Creation Sunday, please indicate this when you add your signature and we will add your church’s name to the Creation Sunday Celebrations page.

This sort of item is perfect for the YEC News thread. That's what it is there for.
