Question Evolution Day is an important way for creationists to present information that Darwinists neglect, obscure, and misrepresent. Some evolutionists do not realize that there's another side to the story, having been saturated in propaganda. Proponents of particles-to-propagandist evolution work very hard to find something shiny to present to their peers for accolades and more grant money. Unfortunately, much of this involves circular reasoning, arguing from presuppositions, dreadful research, ignoring alternative explanations, and dishonesty.
Just over two years ago, Bill Nye the Incompetent Guy debated Ken Ham. He used numerous logical fallacies and sneaky debate tactics (such as "elephant hurling", firing off additional questions when Ham only had two minutes to respond, and each question would require substantially more than two minutes), outdated science that creationists had already addressed, and more.
One of his ill-researched remarks was about the feasibility of Noah's Ark. Since some people were unable to build large ships, it's obviously impossible. (Hasty generalization and fallacy of exclusion, anyone?) Ancient Chinese ships are one example that give lie to his claim. Billy also said that we have the Grand Canyon, and there should be many of them all over the world. They exist. Lots of them. Answers in Genesis assembled a passel of debate answers that the average person has not bothered to read. Why? Because creationists are dismissed and denigrated — but the evidence is available.
Atheists and other anti-creationists like that Nye tinhorn are unwilling to examine the evidence, and cherry-pick information to bolster their microbes-to-monkeys evolutionary presuppositions. They also misrepresent what biblical creationists actually believe and teach, then congratulate each other on their "brilliant logic". Not hardly!
A video from Ian Juby's Genesis Week has some excellent material. It deals with the canyons that Nye conveniently neglected (as well as some new ones that have been discovered), and then he takes some anti-creationists to task. I strongly recommend that you spend half an hour and watch "Canyons Everywhere".
Question Evolution Day is more than a novelty or a chance for creationists to be heard. We can present evidence for creation and refuting bad science presented to proclaim the puny god of evolutionism. Hopefully, we can encourage some evolutionists who have not seriously considered the scientific and biblical evidence for creation to question evolution. After all, they are not given enough evidence! Worse, the Evo Sith patrol the Web and other places to fire off bad science as if it was proof.
There is a Creator, and he makes the rules. We can find out what he has to say in the written Word of God.
