The Smithsonian-Ray Comfort
I finally had the privilege of visiting the amazing Natural History Museum at the Smithsonian Institute, in Washington D.C. I wanted to see the undeniable evidence for evolution that had so often been talked about by its believers.
We inquired where we could find the evolution exhibit and were told to go past the dinosaur exhibit, and there we would find the Neanderthal display.
We carefully followed the directions through the skeletons of all sorts of horses, amazing dinosaurs and all kinds of God-created creatures. Suddenly, there is was…the crowning glory of the Smithsonian Institute's evolution display--a family of hairy dummies looking like a cheap window display of a Halloween store. It was underwhelming.
I was reminded of my disappointing experience at Paris's "Museum National D'Histoire Naturelle Grand Galerie De L'Evolution." The French also had exhibits of thousands of God's creatures, and tried to justify the name of the museum by displaying one copy of Origin of Species and a stuffed monkey with a "Lucy" sign on it.
An insightful scientist once said that evolution has done nothing for humanity. Time has proven him wrong. Evolution has become a massive money-making business. The faithful flock to buy books, bones (do a search on the massive fake fossil industry), DVD's, magazines, made-for TV documentaries, and it all evolved from nothing but the molehill of one man's imagination. The whole-hearted embracing of the Theory of Evolution without empirical proof, is a sad testimony to the gullibility of the human mind.
P.s. A comment from "Carl":
"I had a similar experience when I took my son to the evolution exhibit at the Los Angeles Museum of Natural History last year. Other than a few pictures and diagrams and dioramas with figurines, there was nothing. Since there are literally thousands, if not millions of fossils that could be used to demonstrate the past evolution of an animal, why were they all 'in storage'? It's a huge museum with more than ample floor space but they didn't have enough space for an evolution exhibit? The fake diorama used up enough space to exhibit genuine fossils to show evolution rather than diagrams and figurines. I also had the same experience at the New York Museum of Natural History back in 2001."
A question from a skeptic
"Could anyone of you believers tell me when the end times will happen, besides soon. It seems to me that the end times have been preached by man ever since the time they created their fictional deities." Jonathan
Here are some of the "signs" of which the Bible speaks. Nation will rise against nation. Wars. Earthquakes in various places. Money-hungry preachers will deceive many and slur the name of Christianity. It predicts a forsaking of the institution of marriage, an increase in knowledge (think of the computer era) and an increase in travel (think of air flight, train, car, etc.). A belief in "fables" (Santa Claus, etc.), and a general denial of the world-wide Noahic flood. There will be an increase in dietary concern, a forsaking of the Ten Commandments, and Israel (Jerusalem in particular) will become a huge unsolvable problem for the nations of the world. Life will become fearful for many, and men will have heart failure because of concern for the things that happen on the earth. The Scriptures speak of a cold hypocritical religious system with a mere "form of godliness."
There will be skeptics of Christianity who will particularly mock the thought of the Second Coming. The Bible even perfectly predicts your philosophy and the reason why you mock the thought. It says you will say that these signs have always been around, and you will do this for two reasons: 1. because you don't realize that God is not subject to the dimension of time (a day to Him is as a thousand years to us), and 2. because of your love of lust. However, the big "sign" to look for is the Jews re-possession of the city of Jerusalem. That happened in 1967. For the first time in 2,000 years without a homeland, they obtained Jerusalem, and they now occupy that holy city. Despite all this, Jesus said that the gospel must be preached to the ends of the earth, and we are trying to do that in the hope that people like you will come to your senses. There's a reason why we are so concerned for you. This is because the first time Jesus came, He came a harmless lamb to suffer for the sins of the world. The second time He will come in perfect Judgment, as the conquering King of Kings and Lord of Lords. The sky will part,there will be a great noise, lightning, and incredible power. The Bible warns that He will come in a holy wrath, to punish murderers, rapists, thieves, liars, fornicators, blasphemers, adulterers, and the disobedient. It will be so fearful, humanity will call for rocks to fall on them to hide them from His power. Here are some details of what will happen:
"... and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed" (2 Thessalonians 1:7-10).
All these signs are deliberately hidden from the proud by what you are deceived into thinking is a fictional deity, in a Book you think is nothing but mythology. Your sin against God is way more serious than a heart attack. We are talking about where you will spend eternity: Heaven or Hell. If you are not sure what to do, today go to www.needGod.com.

I had the occasion to visit your page following a related link on "the Smithsonian" from Google. Although a hindu, I had little trouble following the crux of your arguments. Your doubts about evolution are entirely valid and indeed, should be asked by all. Still your conclusions are somewhat suspect. Without going into a religious debate, I had always believed that the universe was created almost an infinite time by ago an all-encompassing energy termed "Brahma" or "God". These seemingly contradict christian gospels, although I cannot claim my beliefs are more valid than yours. Do your views reflect your/your groups' personal belief or do they represent a general christian worldview ? It would be interesting to follow the debate.
