Creationist Wisdom — Example Eighteen

Your Curmudgeon has blundered into yet another lode of Luddism. There’s a new creationist website — new to us, that is — Who Is Your Creator? We can’t figure out if the question mark is part of their name. Sometimes they use it, other times not.

Their “about” section gives no history for this operation. We found something dated back in December of 2006, announcing their billboard campaign, so they’ve been around at least that long. The only name we see attached to this outfit is Julie Haberle. She’s said to be their founder.

Up to now, their main activities seem to have been their website and putting up billboards in Minnesota — and asking for money, of course. We assume it’s yet another operation cashing in on the ever-popular “Ask stupid people for money” business model.

Their message is being spread around by an outfit called PR Web, which describes itself thusly: “PRWeb, a leader in online news and press release distribution, has been used by more than 40,000 organizations of all sizes to increase the visibility of their news, improve their search engine rankings and drive traffic to their Websites.”

Ah, we’ve learned that PR Web is owned by Vocus, a publicly held company that provides on-demand Web-based software for public relations. Anyway, Who Is Your Creator appears to have added PR Web to their billboard campaign to spread their creationist message and beg for money.

Now that we know the players, this is the article being flung around the internet by PR Web: Surprising Results Reveal Genesis Account of Creation More Scientific Than Theory of Evolution . We’ll give you some excerpts, with bold added by us:

Keeping within scientific standards most commonly used by evolutionists, Who Is Your Creator [link omitted] has created a scientific narrative for the Genesis Account of Creation. By using those same standards, Who Is Your Creator also exposes the utter lack of scientific evidence for the origin of the universe, origin of life, and common descent.

Hey, this could be big! They not only claim they’ve got a “scientific narrative” for Genesis, but they’ve demolished evolution too. Here’s more:

Due to the biased media coverage of the upcoming worldwide Darwin Day celebration, Who Is Your Creator is stepping up its attack on the pro-evolution fabrications and misrepresentations that are commonly associated with Darwinism. To help with deciphering what is true and what is false, they are also producing a DVD that will be primarily geared towards students, parents, and churches.

Their efforts don’t seem to be “geared towards” scientists. Just as well, they’re already lost. Let’s read on:

The DVD will systematically present the evidence against each tenet of evolution, the evidence for the Genesis Account of Creation, and end with the Gospel message.

That must be quite a DVD. Continuing:

Evolutionists admit that there is NO direct observation for common descent …

Wow!

They also admit that they don’t know what mechanism(s) could cause enough genetic change to eventually change a fish into an amphibian, a reptile into a bird, a chimpanzee into a man, etc. …

Jeepers! Evolution has nothing going for it. Who knew?

Who Is Your Creator founder, Julie Haberle, comments, “Are evolutionists really interesting in pursuing the truth? While most people that believe in evolution are simply unaware of the lack of empirical science supporting it, many willfully turn a blind eye to current scientific research. In fact, evolutionary-based science has now been proven to be a menace to medical research and scientific progress.”

So there you are — the truth at last! Hurry over to Who Is Your Creator and send them your money. Do your part to bring down the evil House of Darwin.

    Looks like Elmer Gantry is alive and well. Anything for a buck, it seems.
