Petition to Our Seventh-day Adventist Church Leadership

Dear Randal Wisbey, Ricardo Graham, Don Schneider, and Jan Paulsen: We, by signing this petition, reaffirm our belief in a literal six-day creation as expressed in Genesis 1. We are concerned in regards to the alleged teaching of theistic macroevolution as fact in some of our Adventist colleges and universities. And we lift our voices in agreement with the open letter from ASI Missions Inc. "that this dialog move to a point where parents and prospective students have a full disclosure ... so they can make informed decisions...."

    5 years ago Comments: This petition is retarded. The universe is 13.25 Billion years old and the earth is 4.5 Billion years old. Not only is Darwinian evolution with natural selection as the driving force essentially correct, creationism is a blatant denial of facts and the very nature of reality. The big bang occurred, the universe is expaning, abiogenesis occurred on earth, and evolution lead to the differentiation of a few bacteria into hundreds of millions of species. You are all stupid. If god exists he will surely send you all to hell for blatantly ignoring the true grandeur of this universe. Evolution does not denigrate you or god, it gives a peak into the true complexity, beauty, and patience that can be found within a gods mind. Fools.
