Battleground God: a challenging quiz game to test your consistency regarding matters of Deity. Excerpts from my results:
Congratulations! You have been awarded the TPM medal of distinction! This is our second highest award for outstanding service on the intellectual battleground…. The fact that you progressed through this activity without being hit and biting very few bullets suggests that your beliefs about God are internally consistent and well thought out….
You rejected evolutionary theory when the vast majority of scientists think both that the evidence points to its truth and that there is no evidence which falsifies it. Of course, many creationists claim that the evidential case for evolution is by no means conclusive. But in doing so, they go against scientific orthodoxy. So you’ve got to make a choice: (a) Bite the bullet and say there is evidence that evolution is not true, despite what the scientists say. (b) Take a direct hit and say that this is an area where your beliefs are just in contradiction. You chose to bite the bullet.
Interesting stuff. The parts regarding evolution jarred me a bit, as I realized just how separate we evangelicals are from the rest of the “rational” world in not regarding evolution as a proven and foregone conclusion. This despite the fact that, unlike most modern Protestant evangelicals, I am not a “young-earther.” My current outlook on creationism is a deliberate agnosticism — or more like a case of Orwellian doublethink — which hovers between “literal P.O.V. old-earthism” and plain old “theistic evolution.”
Hey, put those stones down. We’re brothers in Christ regardless of our differing creationist stands, right, fellow Christians? I said, put the stones down! No, NO!!! AUGH!!! (*repeated pelting sound*)
