Essay: Cutting off the air supply of atheism
A number of Christians have written books to combat the recent books of militant New Atheism authors such as Richard Dawkins. For example, there were a number of Christian books published in response to Dawkins' book The God Delusion.
Atheism is a religion. And atheists, time and time again, take away the religious liberty of Christians in order to promote their false religion. Evolution is the air supply of atheism. Directly confronting atheism can be useful. But, the best way for Christianity to prevail against secularism is through preventative medicine. Reaching young people with the gospel and discipling them is a first step. Yet to truly prevail against atheism, cutting off the air supply of atheism is crucial.
The grassroots Question evolution! campaign can reach countless young people before evolutionists indoctrinate them in high school and college. The widespread teaching of evolution is having grave consequences on Western World Christianity and young people are leaving churches in large numbers. In Europe, secularism is rampant.
The direct approach of confronting atheism is important, but the indirect approach of preventing atheism through the cutting off of its air supply is also far more efficient. If Christendom is going to conquer secularism, it makes perfect sense to do so in the quickest and most efficient manner possible. Let's cut atheism off at the knees and vigorously spread the Question evolution! campaign on the internet and in our local communities.

Decline of global atheism and the explosive growth of global Christianity
In 2011, the American Spectator declared concerning research published in the International Bulletin of Missionary Research:
|“||The report estimates about 80,000 new Christians every day, 79,000 new Muslims every day, and 300 fewer atheists every day. These atheists are presumably disproportionately represented in the West, while religion is thriving in the Global South, where charismatic Christianity is exploding."||”|

Since World War II a majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the theory of evolution which employs methodological naturalism have been atheists. In 2011, a campaign called the Question evolution! campaign was launched by the biblical creation organization Creation Ministries International which is a worldwide "grass-roots movement to challenge the anti-Christian dogma of evolution". The focus of the Question evolution! campaign is on "15 questions that evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer." The 15 questions posed to evolutionists (and undecided individuals) can be found HERE The campaign will be primarily conducted in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa.
