The belief that God is a remote First Cause who establishes the scientific laws and thereafter leaves nature to its own
The belief in the existence of one God who is viewed as the creative Source of the human race and the world who transcends yet is immanent (knowable) in the world
The key mechanism of evolution by which variance is introduced. These random mutations either help or hurt the species' chances of survival
the belief that all criteria of judgment are relative to a person's perspective or interpretation
Matter vs. Information
Matter is not all there is. It is distinct from information. Books contain pages and words (matter), but the thoughts that created it are abstract (information). It begs the question, "Who/What came up with the information if evolution is random and purposeless?"
The strategy of breaking a solid log (evolution) with scientific evidence (irreducible complexity, fossil record, etc.)
Becomes subjective once God becomes subjective. With this shift came different views on marriage, divorce, pre-marital sex, abortion, homosexuality, gender roles, etc.
Is not the answer as some Christians think since many Supreme Court justices were appointed by so-called conservative presidents (Bush, Reagan, Nixon, etc.)

Engel v. Vitale
One of (3) significant events that shifted the way we think because it banned official prescribed prayers from public schools because they "established a religion" and replaced it with a new religion that didn't need God.
Complex molecular mechanisms (i.e. sight and blood-clotting) couldn't have been preceded by functional, intermediate stages. An example of this is the mousetrap
Fossil records show that almost all of the major animal groups appeared suddenly, yet there is no fossil record showing they had any evolutionary ancestors
What evolutionists are really promoting since the empirical evidence does not support their "scientific" theory
Leaves our young people vulnerable to being indoctrinated with materialism--especially when they go off to college
Does not show single-celled organisms changing step by step into complex plants and animals.
What Carl Sagan said was needed to protect us from irrationality and keep us grounding "logical reasoning and investigative procedure"
