Critical Thinking Skills That Disarm Evolutionists

by Mike Riddle
Apologetics Symposium
Cedar Park Church
 January 4th, 2017


Science is the method through which theories are tested and re-tested. However, today evolution is guarded against such scrutiny and taught uncritically in our public schools. This pervasive defense of naturalism has led students to view Darwinism as the only accepted explanation for the diversity of life on Earth. This presentation will encourage critical thinking of scientific interpretations, and examine the bedrock evidence for the theory of evolution.
  • The critical thinking method
  • Three critical thinking questions
  • A power question
  • Words have meaning: fuzzy words and magic words
  • Red-flag words
  • Why the fossil record refutes evolutionism
  • If evolution is true what should we observe?
