How to debate a evolutionist part one

This will be a compiling of many hours, and several years of debating evolutionists online and running 3 forums on the subject. If the creationist is going to be any good at representing God and His creation, then he will have to learn the evolutionists tactics, and mindset in order to be effective in debating. And when evolutionists act bad during a debate it actually reveals more than what is realized.

  • Name calling: Name calling usually happens when the evolutionist actually has no more science to present and therefore needs to stereotype or destroy the creationist’s credibility (AKA attacking the messenger). If the creationist credibility is not intact, then what they say won’t have much bearing. This is because the evolutionist can never be wrong, so to cover for his or her inability to continue on the same level of debate, they resort to these tactics. Because why else do these things if their science can still defend their theory? So name calling is actually a good thing, because it shows that you just out debated the evolutionist and that is all he or she had left to defend their beloved theory. Pointing that out takes the power of name calling away from them.
  • Name calling up front: When the evolutionist starts with the name calling up front in the debate, then you are wasting your time. This upfront name calling is an indication that the debate will be based more on their hatred for you for what you believe more than anything concerning evolution or creation. In this type of situation it is best to just bow out of the debate. This is because it will start out bad and only get worse. The goal of the evolutionist in a debate like this is to get you to react unchristian like then hold that against you and never let you forget. Even up to posting what you said or did on several blogs and websites. That is why it’s best to bow out because they will control the debate with this tactic and you will never get a word in edgewise and the thread will become derailed.
  • Stereotyping: Stereotyping such as saying you are a flat earther etc… Is just another tactic that shows the evolutionists weaknesses. To get mad at stereotyping or name calling is to give the control of the debate to them. To point out that this is not science and that you are disappointed that this is the best they can do gives you the control of the debate. Losing your cool to act unChrist like is never an option. Either you, as a believer in Christ, enter into the debate with the intent of being a good representation of Christ, or to what point do you debate?
  • Carrying it to far: If you find it easy to push the buttons of the evolutionist you are debating, and they just get more mad with each post (which can be funny sometimes). It’s best to apologize and just bow out. This is because quite a few evolutionist have huge egos that if bruised they will hold a grudge. One that can lead to internet stalking. Now you might think that the laws that exist will protect you. But that is not the case. And if you do bring someone to court, you pay the fees that can exceed 100,000 dollars. And if you lose they can sue you for defamation of character and use the case you lost as evidence costing you even more money. And if they live in another country, you might as well forget it. International court system cost twice as much, and the laws that govern it are different.
  • Defusing the question instead of answering the question: Defusing the question is not the same as answering it. Instead the evolutionist will try and make your question sound unimportant. Saying things like: That does not matter. Or that’s not a problem for evolution. What you need to do at this point is make your next post only on what does not matter, or what’s not a problem and ask why do they use a cop out excuse instead of not scientifically answering the question? At this point you can watch them squirm to answer you.
  • Never take pride in what you believe: No debate on any forum is going to change the whole world’s view. Your debate is just a speck that can reach a few people for Christ (like a small ministry). Taking pride in it makes you react badly and will put what you say on the same level as the evolutionists you debate. And your pride will set a bad example of the God you represent. It is okay to get frustrated and make your debate opponent answer your questions. It is not okay to take out that frustration through words that would be the will of the flesh. If you cannot control it, back out. There is no shame where there is no pride.

Here are some other things you need to know about debating evolutionists:

  • Because they usually belong to a group of evolutionists who debate creationists YECH (young earth creationist haters). They will take everything you post that they cannot answer and have their friends help them answer it by posting what you say on one of their forums to be dissected. You are basically debating 5-10 evolutionists at one time even though you will never see them. This is usually the reason why their answers always look good. Up to ten people helping them can make things look that way. But then again it also shows that it takes that many evolutionists to debate one creationist. Ironic.
  • They like to take the words micro and macro and say or imply they are exactly the same thing. The reason this is done is because micro-evolution is observable. Macro-evolution is not. So to make macro sound like it’s proven and observable they will say it’s the same thing. Things like: Micro to infinity = macro. Or given enough time anything can happen.
  • The “time excuse” is their form of the “God did it” excuse they often complain about when we say: God did it. The time excuse is used when things are not observable. Time excuse is also used as a board type answer to imply that time answers everything concerning evolution. Their famous phrase: Given enough time evolution can change anything into anything.
  • They love to join Christian forums under false world views. Claiming “agnostic” or “theistic evolutionist” allows them to play both sides. But you can always tell which side they are on because when they are cornered, evolution will always be their choice.
  • There are those who love to evangelize for evolution (convert to their belief). You can always tell who these people are because they will find someone who is not sure about creation, and they will try to befriend them and then convert them. Science needs conversion? They will defend evolution as if they were preaching it. In others words, almost all of their posts will sound like a sells pitch for evolution.
  • Evolutionists like to imply absolutes where absolutes don’t exist by saying things like: Evolution is a true proven fact with mountains of empirical evidence. Exalting a theory to a level without providing all the evidence to the claim is an unfounded remark. Just start saying prove it, which is a big order, and they will quit.
  • They love to play cloak and dagger games. They will use different user names at every forum they debate on because they don’t want the creationist to be able to Google their user name and be able to find out who they really are at their own forums, and that they are militant atheists (atheists whose goal is to rid the world of Christians). As long as they can use that deception and hide in the shadows, they will role play worldviews to see which one gives them the best angle to promote their agenda. This is also why they have user names that are not even a word in most cases. That’s so when they are Googled, it goes to a dead-end.
  • They often will try to make your evidence live up to standards that they cannot make theirs do. Two standards that are needed to learn the definitions of are: Scientific method. Empirical evidence. And make sure that you learn them from credible sites. Once done you will find that these two things cannot be met on several levels by evolutionists who defend their beloved theory.
  • Peer Reviews. This is a favorite that the evolutionist like to hit a creationist over the head with constantly. The fact of the matter is, the only peer review paper they will accept is one done by another evolutionist who thinks like they do. That’s like going to a court where the judge has been bought off to rule against you. From their end it would be like doi
    ng a paper that has to be peer-reviewed by creationists. How would they feel? Would they think they will get a fair shake? No more than a creationist should from getting peer from an evolutionist. What this basically boils down to is bias. They know a evolutionist will “never” approve a creationist paper as to the main reason they will bring this up.
  • The common ancestor idea. When you say that they claim that we evolved from chimps, they will deny this and say that we share a common ancestor. The object of doing this is to get the creationist to quit beating their dead horse. The idea of man coming from chimps has had so many holes shot in it, they don’t want to deal with it anymore. So if they can get you to agree to “common ancestor” idea they get you to quit pointing out their mistake. And by the way, what do they keep comparing our DNA to? Chimps right? Ironic isn’t it.
  • Evolutionists like to only answer the parts of your post that they can. They will skip the rest in hopes you won’t notice. There are 2 ways to counter this. 1) Keep pointing this out until they address them. 2) Start doing the same thing until they point it out and just say: That’s the way you were debating. And of course they will say: Where did I do that? And you show them. To make things easier it’s best to make the list of what they skip as you go on your pc. Then you can just copy and paste.
  • Reversing the burden of proof. When you ask them for evidence as to show proof, they will often twist the question back in your direction and make it sound as if the burden of proof is upon you. Don’t let the evolutionist do this. Just point out that when they meet your criteria you will meet theirs and that you asked first.

What I find ironic about all this is that there has to be so much deception to prove what is deemed to have been already proven.

Truth 😔

Unfortunately many wont listen.....:(

Mabey your shame is justified... You should probably stop. Also you aren't going to change any minds by lying and editing videos to make non believers look bad. You're doing the opposite of what you claim your intentions are.

There is no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus who walk after the Spirit and not according to the flesh. Those who live according to the flesh will also be judged by it.

But shame isn't the motivation for sharing the love of Christ. Obedience resulting from irresistibly loving Him is our motivation.

I Can't even begin to fathom what an eternity without God looks like 😣 Being totally separated from him

We are called to do our fathers business period

Yeh , so stop please.

"It shames most of us to consider what percentage of our time we spend warning the lost of their terrible danger." Imagine if 50% of the people in the world follow a different religion than you, and they consider you "lost" while you in turn consider them "lost." Or if instead of just 2 religions, now there are 100 different religions with different variations of them and different sects, different denominations, with different interpretations, etc. Every group thinks every other group is "lost" while they are not. How do you resolve which of you ACTUALLY ARE "lost" and hold incorrect beliefs, besides your merely saying it over and over again? If their simply telling you that you are "lost" does not convince you, how could you fault them for doing the exact same with you? That would be a height of hypocrisy. Welcome to religion 101. If we want to determine what is true and false beyond just asserting so, we need objective reason, evidence, facts, and logic. That is far more reliable and successful in history than people simply stating that other people are wrong, I am right, etc. Until actual reason, evidence, facts, and logic are presented for someone's religious claims, it would be irresponsible to believe those religious claims. It would also be hypocritical to criticize the religious beliefs of others, when their basis for holding them is the same as your basis for you holding yours (they have "faith" in them, even if the evidence is not there).

All too often you hear people say “ you won’t change my mind”. It’s not a mind transformation. It’s a heart transformation. The Devil is good at what he does. He influences your mind with human rights, Scientology, Evolution, and Religion. He uses all worldly platforms in education, music, movies, books, worldly traditions, politics and all to manipulate your heart. We indulge in the desires of the flesh and sin because it “FEELS” good. Christianity is not a religion. Following Christ is not a religion. It is a way of life and the only way to Heaven if you believe there is one. And there is, as much as there is a hell. And every individual who has ever lived on this little blue rock from the beginning of creation will go to one place or the other. God gives us free will. To make a choice. Once that choice is made solid in your heart, then your destiny is sealed. It now becomes God’s will. It is written “THY WILL BE DONE”. On earth as it is in Heaven. Don’t be foolish. Life on this earth is as a vapor. One minute your here. The next your gone. You are not promised time. Who knows when death will call them? Anyone? Do you know? Are you willing to risk hell forever to find out you were wrong that God doesn’t exist? Your choice. Don’t harden your heart to the warnings that come from God Himself.

In case another person asks me again, Ray’s quote is why I comment here. You just can’t stay out of the lives of others... The only “lost” people are the ones who’ve flushed their intellects for a sales pitch about a product that doesn’t exist...?

True, I am working on that... prayers would help!

There are some great answers on here! Thank you for sharing who God has used to mature you in your walk with Christ!

I’d have to say David Wilkerson in the beginning of my walk. His sermons were so powerful and convicting. I’ve listened to just about all of them and a lot of them more than once!!! Now Joe is keeping me on my toes and growing in the faith! I learn so much from him!!! God bless you all!

The first was David Wilkerson, then David J. Meyer of Last Trumpet Minstries.

David Pawson, Reuben Torrey, Leonard Ravenhill, Dan Jennings, Casey Whitaker, Raymond McMahon, Joe Webb, Joe McClure and Dan Corner.

Walter Veith. He teaches a lot on Biblical prophecies and church history. Always pointing out false teachings going on in the world.

Pastor Erwin Lutzer helped me get out of gnosticism with his teachings on new age I praise God for him and his biblical foundations. And currently Dr. Michael Heiser is helping me dig much deep in the Hebrew scriptures and the Greek new testament!

Adrian Rodgers, John Hagy, D James Kennedy, Charles Stanley, Robert Jeffress, James Dobson.

Warren Wiersbe....his Be Series books have been some great advice. Adrian Rodgers and Ed Hindson too. Love Jacob Prasch.

Dennis and Cathy strouse!

Corey Trimble from the Experience Community Church in Murfreesboro, TN. He is a teacher who takes his congregation through the Bible one chapter a week, breaking it down verse by verse. Also Joe Schimmel, Chad, Tony, and whoever else’s involved in good fight! You guys have helped me grow so much! I’m on the east coast but I hope one day to meet you when I visit family in California!

Pastor Hank Lindstrom Calvary of Tampa

Michael Pearl - No Greater Joy Ministries.

Billy Gowan, Charles Stanley, Jentzen Franklin, Smith Wigglesworth.

I like John MacArthur and Piper

Bill McCabe. Teacher of my first bible study in Burbank Ca where I was also baptized! Where I met a friend that led me to BLESSED HOPE CHAPEL in Simi Valley! 🙌🏼

Derek Prince has many solid biblical teachings on YouTube. He was a humble man and had a close walk with the Lord. He also has written many books.

Chuck Missler, Ray Comfort, Steven Anderson, John Piper, Paulo Junior, Agenor Duque, Todd Friel, Ken Ham, Carl Kerby, etc.

Reverend Collins a days senior my pastor, one of my first biblical teachers rev Richard Andrews, a co-worker of mine pastor Robert hund, but I've also learned a lot of lessons from guys like dr.

John MacArthur and Charles Stanley.

James Jacob Prasch - extremely gifted of God teacher to the Body of Christ.

Pastor Charles Lawson and Chuck Missler.

Rev. Verne Gerdes from Bath, Illinois. He read the Bible through every year and had read it around 60 times. Before he passed away in the hospital and he wasn't concious in the "real world" he quoted scripture for 2 days before he died. What an inspiration.

OEC debate was over quickly when I challenged him to use the Bible only. OEC is not supported by the Bible. ~ Issac ... See MoreSee Less

OEC = Old Earth Creation. Means they believe God used millions and billions of years to create. And the days are not literal 24 hour days. And there is a huge gap aka gap theory, and God created the earth twice. Google Old Earth Creation.

I'm actually reading "Old Earth Creationism on Trial", and the authors are developing the same conclusion.

As funny as TULIP is, we as sincere Christ followers should be following up with prayers for the truth of God's word to be 👉understood. Many are deceived in these days we are in and it is very alarming to me...

What atheists have refuse to tell us since day one. That they fudged the numbers, and if you unfudge them the actual percentage is about 70%. Listen and see for yourself. And no the video is not done by creationists. It's done by atheists who are trying to justify what they did.

Now if creationists had taken evidence and went this far, do you think the atheists would accept this, or call us liars?

No we are not. We are no % chimp. "26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them."
