You will be stunned by what we found today at the website of the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom. Their new post is titled Buried Secrets Can Be Worth Uncovering, and it was written by James J. S. Johnson, J.D., TH.D.
He has two middle initials, which is very classy, and he not only has a law degree, but he’s also a Doctor of Theology. He’s described at the end as “Associate Professor of Apologetics and Chief Academic Officer at the Institute for Creation Research.” Here are some excerpts from his post, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Buried secrets sometimes surface, revealing hidden things. However, if no one is willing to do some diligent digging, much of what is concealed will remain undiscovered. For example, last year some “grave secrets” were uncovered: human bones from a Viking cemetery concealed in a coastal cliff near Orkney’s Newark Bay. No gravediggers triggered the coastal cemetery’s discovery — stormy weather did.
He’s got a couple of footnotes to that information, but we didn’t think it worth the bother to pursue them. Then he says:
Sometimes discoveries, like this one, are unintentional surprises. But such fortuitous discoveries can be expanded by “digging deeper.”
Jimmy gives an example from the bible, but we’ll skip it. Now he tells us:
When Charles Darwin announced his theory, few bothered to “check under the hood” to see if there was an empirically verifiable process that substantiated his claim that natural selection serves as a substitute creator to think, favor (or disfavor), and select animals to survive.
Yeah, nobody bothered to look for evidence. They just let Darwin blather away. Amazing, isn’t it? But then something happened. Jimmy continues:
Thankfully, ICR’s Dr. Randy Guliuzza undertook the herculean task of digging deeper into evolutionist research literature and exposed the natural selection model as an etiological bait-and-switch scam like the Emperor’s New Clothes.
Ooooooooooooh! An ICR creation scientist disproved Darwin! Jimmy has a footnote for that, which links to a couple of ICR articles. We’re not going to bother with them. Oh, all right — here’s a link to one: Darwin’s Sacred Imposter: Natural Selection’s Idolatrous Trap. It’s from ten years ago, and the claim is that natural selection doesn’t work. Go ahead, read it if you like. To encourage you, Jimmy says:
Dr. Guliuzza patiently uncovered grave secrets and reported study after study, building a mountain of bioengineering research and analysis that not only refuted natural selection as a causal agent for life’s diversity but pointed irrefutably to the exquisite innate engineering the Creator has invested in every creature.
Amazing, huh? Darwin was utterly disproved, and ICR told the world about it ten years ago. Here’s our last excerpt:
Sound bites tickle ears, but the truth is often buried in fine print. At ICR, we strive to unearth the truth and provide readable articles on creation science informed by Scripture and biblical apologetics. And we simultaneously aim to report professional scholarship that has depth.
There it is, dear reader. ICR has disproved Darwin, but it’s been buried in fine print. Now that you know, go forth and spread the word.
