Making a Monkey Out of You?

On our drive up to Eugene we came across a billboard just as we crossed into Oregon.  It was very amusing and made us laugh (but not for the reasons that the creators of the billboards meant):

The group (whoisyourcreator.com) is based in Minnesota.  Here is what the website ‘About Us’ has to say:

Who Is Your Creator uses media, including display advertising, to raise awareness of the serious misrepresentations and lack of scientific proof for the theory of Evolution, Naturalism and Darwinism.

Who Is Your Creator is a 501(c) 3 public charity registered in the State of Minnesota and donations are tax-deductible as provided under the IRS tax code. (Who Is Your Creator has no paid directors or employees.)

We believe that God is The Creator, and that Jesus is The Way, The Truth, and The Life. Our hope is that we can Advance His Kingdom by countering the false foundations for the faith of evolution and to offer Christians more opportunities for sharing the Gospel.

(The people and organizations quoted or linked on our site do not necessarily reflect our beliefs, views and/or opinions. They are strictly used for reference.

I think it is amusing that they are trying to show that there is ‘serious misrepresentations and lack of scientific proof for the theory of Evolution, Naturalism and Darwinism’ when everyone knows that there is no scientific proof that ‘God is the Creator’ and that ‘Jesus is the Way.’  It is all based on belief.  At least with the theory of evolution is based on observations and scientific exploration, while believing in God is not scientific at all–it is all based on belief.  That is why evolution should be taught in science class, but creationism should not–that should be taught in a religion class. 

I personally find creationism an easy way out for those who really don’t want to think about the complexities of life.  It is much easier to say, the human body is too complicated to understand, therefore it was created, instead of trying to figure out where we came from.  But that is just my opinion…

    They want to raise awareness of the serious misrepresentations yet by implying that evolution says we came from monkeys, they are making serious misrepresentations.  Primates evolved from the same species tree, man did not evolve from monkeys.  Can they at least try to make their points without obvious lies? (oh yeah, nevermind)

    I too, saw a billboard like this near Athens, Georgia.  I am a high school science teacher and right now am reading essays about the characteristics of life.  One kid wrote, "Evolution is the accumulation of adaptations.  Well, I don\’t know about me using evolution, but apparently some scientists believe we were all monkeys at some point.  So, according to these scientists, I was descended from monkeys that adapted into humans."
    My question is, "Who is telling them monkeys turned into humans?"  Of course it sounds ridiculous–  the misconceptions about evolution are 99% of the problem with why people do not "believe" in it.  My answer is, "If you do not believe in evolution, they you do not understand it."

    Hey!  Thanks for the message.  I wonder how they are bankrolling all of these billboards.  I\’m sure paying for all these is not cheap.  I guess the answer to your question of who is teaching people that we are from monkeys is the church.  They have a vested interest in making sure the idea of evolution stays within the realm of lies.  They then can turn around and make fun of it because of the lies that they are telling.
