Enyart Debates Hannam on Theistic Evolution

Evolution Debate* God's Philosophers author James Hannam debates Bob Enyart on Theistic Evolution: The acclaimed writer James Hannam earned great reviews for his important work, God's Philosophers.

* British Darwinist's Assessment of Debating Bob: After this debate, infamous evolutionist PZ Myers copied and pasted the following quote, written by well-received British author and Darwinist James Hannam, about young-earth creationist Bob Enyart:

* What About Bob? "Richard Dawkins once said that 'if you meet somebody who claims not to believe in evolution, that person is ignorant, stupid or insane (or wicked, but I'd rather not consider that).' It rapidly became clear that Bob was none of these things. For a start, I know a fair bit about evolution and genetics. But when it came to familiarity with the arguments, he was way ahead of me. On epigenetics, RNA/DNA chemistry, and animal physiology, I was hopelessly outclassed. Bob is not ignorant. And it is pretty clear he is neither stupid nor insane. He came across, in fact, as extremely intelligent. So perhaps he is wicked? Well... I am sure he is nothing of the sort." -British Author and Darwinist James Hannam

* Theistic Evolution Debate: Part 1 of 3! Fundamentally Darwinism is the theory of an unguided process that has resulted in the diversity of life on earth. Theistic evolutionists defend Darwinism but claim that God guided the process, which seems to lead to the internally inconsistent claim of a guided unguided process. In this special edition of Real Science Radio, one of the topics discussed is the nature of physical (and other) laws and a claim that Einstein made about physical laws (which claim Bob agrees with and James finds interesting).

us-belief-in-creation-vs-evolution.png* In a Third of a Century, Creationism Holds, Theistic Evolution Declines: Over a 32 year period, the Gallup organization has asked Americans about human origins. While of course surveys are often inaccurate and people's views often more complex and nuanced, and even self-contradictory, than polls tend to reveal, notice the general trend. The godless view, that humans evolved without any kind of divine involvement, more than doubled from 1982 to 2014. The young earth creationist view mostly held steady, within the survey's margin of error, from 44% to 42%. That staying power exerts itself against the onslaught. Consider the Darwinist propaganda funded by hundreds of billions of dollars spent through public school teaching, TV entertainment networks, Hollywood messaging through a high percentage of their films from animated children's movies to scifi, biased government grants, the mainstream news media and publishers including virtually all magazine and newspaper editorial boards, all of the cable science, discovery, and National Geographic networks, and through the official teaching of the Roman Catholic Church, all mainline Protestant denominations and most Protestant seminaries and Bible colleges. But then, if Gallup shows a determined continued belief in young-earth creationism, as their third option described, "God created human beings within the last 10,000 years or so", then where was the defections from belief that enabled the materialistic view to about double?  Not surprisingly, it came from a camp that can roughly be called, very roughly, theistic evolution. During the 32 years of these surveys, those who held that "Humans evolved with God guiding" lost nearly ten percent of that camp, dropping to just over 30% of the population. No wonder.
