evolution darwin theory
Late in Charles Darwin's life, Darwin told the Duke of Argyll that he frequently had overwhelming thoughts that the natural world was the result of design.[1] See also: 15 questions for evolutionists

Dear New Zealand atheist and evolutionist Ace McWicked,

The British publication The Economist declared on February 12, 2019: "In Darwin’s British homeland... Only half the respondents felt certain that the theory of evolution was true...".[2]

Since World War II a majority of the most prominent and vocal defenders of the evolutionary position which employs methodological naturalism have been atheists and agnostics.[3]

The UK has experienced a remarkable drop in its fertility rate and now has a below replacement level of fertility.[4] Religious/creationist immigrants continue to pour into the UK.[5] In addition, overall fertility of foreign-born, creationist women is higher than that of UK-born women.[6] See also: Atheism and fertility rates and Growth of religious fundamentalism

On October 4, 2014, the Vancouver Sun reported that evolutionism is rejected by hundreds of millions of evangelical Christians and Muslims around the world.[7]

Specifically, the Vancouver Sun declared:

Creationism, a religious world view that adamantly rejects Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution, is on the rise among evangelical Protestants and most of the world’s Muslims.

It is not only the majority of residents in Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Indonesia and Turkey who strongly reject the teaching that humans and other species evolved over millions of years from less complex creatures. So do tens of millions of evangelical Christians in North America (as well as South America and Africa).

Overall, [Nidhal Guessoum, a Middle Eastern physics and astronomy professor] who teaches at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, estimates roughly 60 per cent of the world’s Muslims are creationists, including many living in the U.S. and Canada.

Even though poll results about evolution vary based on the questions asked, Salman Hameed reported in the journal Science that strong anti-evolution majorities exist in Turkey, Indonesia, Malaysia, Egypt and Pakistan. The latter is among Canada’s top six source countries for immigrants...[8]

In recent years Britain, the birthplace of Darwinism, has seen a large influx of Muslim immigrants. Most religious Muslims are creationists.[9] In the UK, between the years 2001 and 2009 the Muslim population increased nearly 10 times faster than the non-Muslim population.[10] See also: Islam and belief in creationism

The British newspaper The Telegraph reported in an article entitled Richard Dawkins: Muslim parents 'import creationism' into schools:

Prof Dawkins, a well-known atheist, also blamed the Government for accommodating religious views and allowing creationism to be taught in schools.

"Most devout Muslims are creationists so when you go to schools, there are a large number of children of Islamic parents who trot out what they have been taught," Prof Dawkins said in a Sunday newspaper interview.

"Teachers are bending over backwards to respect home prejudices that children have been brought up with. The Government could do more, but it doesn't want to because it is fanatical about multiculturalism and the need to respect the different traditions from which these children come."[11]

Richard Dawkins
Richard Dawkins is upset because a large number of children of creationist, Muslim parents tell their teachers and fellow students what they have been taught about the origin of life and the origin of the various kinds of plants/animals. And British teachers are bending over backwards to respect Muslim creationist beliefs due to the British government promoting multiculturism.[12]

Johns Hopkins University Press reported in 2014: "Over the past forty years, creationism has spread swiftly among European Catholics, Protestants, Jews, Hindus, and Muslims, even as anti-creationists sought to smother its flames."[13] See also: Evolutionary indoctrination

On December 2018, The Times indicated: "The number of atheists in Britain has fallen in the past year, according to a survey suggesting that more people are attending church, albeit irregularly."[14] See: British atheism

The Guardian published an article in 2017 entitled Nearly 50% are of no religion – but has UK hit ‘peak secular’? which declared:

But, Bullivant told the Observer that the “growth of no religion may have stalled”. After consistent decline, in the past few years the proportion of nones appears to have stabilised. “Younger people tend to be more non-religious, so you’d expect it to keep going – but it hasn’t. The steady growth of non-Christian religions is a contributing factor, but I wonder if everyone who is going to give up their Anglican affiliation has done so by now? We’ve seen a vast shedding of nominal Christianity, and perhaps it’s now down to its hardcore.[15]

Rapid growth of biblical creation belief in China

Regardless of whether some scholars are right and the 21st century will be an Asian century, China will likely have a growing influence in the world.

Evangelical Christianity is experiencing explosive growth in China (see: Growth of Christianity in China). China may have one of the largest populations of biblical creationists in the world by 2030 (see: China and biblical creationism).

To see the magnitude of the explosive growth of Christianity in China, look at THIS GRAPH ABOUT THE GROWTH OF CHRISTIANITY IN CHINA in a DW news story about Chinese Christianity (DW is a mainstream news outlet in Germany).

Jun-Yuan Chen Research Professor Nanjing Institute of Geology and Palaeontology was quoted in the Wall Street Journal as saying, "In China we can criticize Darwin but not the government. In America you can criticize the government, but not Darwin."[16]

Questions for Ace McWicked

You do realize that New Zealand has a below replacement level of births, don't you? How can New Zealand atheism/evolutionism survive an onslaught of religious creationists immigrants with higher birthrates in the decades to come?

If Britain, the fountainhead of modern evolutionism, will not survive this onslaught, neither will New Zealand.

By the way, how are those satisfactory answers to the 15 questions for evolutionists coming?

Don't miss this picture with a caption

The SS New Zealand Atheism going down in the 21st century.

Despite the ship taking on more and more evangelical Christians, religious Filipinos, born again Christians and Muslims according to one of his favorite websites Wikipedia, the New Zealand atheist continued to deny the ship was going down as it disappeared under the sea.

His last words were "In a world of globalization, New Zealand will NOT become desecularized. Stop talking about religious immigrants."

Ace McWicked: The atheist movement is dead and NZ atheism is doomed in a world of globalization

Ace McWicked, the sooner you acknowledge that the atheist movement is dead and in a world of globalization NZ atheism is doomed, the less mental anguish you will face in the long run. See: Decline of the atheist movement and Desecularization and Global atheism statistics
