Norfolk ministers in anti-evolution campaign

EvolutionDownham2009: Four Downham Market church ministers are launching a campaign to counter the widespread public perception of Darwin’s theory of evolution as fact.
The “Fact or Theory” campaign is being organised by David Bizley, Pastor of Downham Market Christian Fellowship, Andrew Sankey, Downham’s Senior Methodist Minister, Major Martin Whybrow of Downham’s Salvation Army, and Judith Grundy, Church of England Vicar of the Denver group of parishes.
The campaign will begin in February, when headteachers and councillors in the Downham Market area, as well as Christopher Fraser, the local MP, will be sent a pack setting out the evidence against evolution.  A copy of a booklet entitled “The Delusion of Evolution” will be enclosed with the pack.  Later this year, it is intended to send the pack to all MPs nationally.
David said: “We feel that the Lord has placed this campaign on our hearts.  As 2009 marks the 150th anniversary of the publication of Darwin’s ‘On the Origin of Species’, now is the time for Christians to take a stand and regain the ground that evolutionists hold in the public consciousness.
“We intend to make this a national campaign, initially by sending a copy of ‘The Delusion of Evolution’ to all of the country’s MPs.  However, we will need help with funding – I estimate that the cost of purchasing, packaging and posting the booklets to each MP will be in the region of £2,000”.
If you would like to make a donation towards the campaign, or to get involved in any way, please contact David on (01366) 384474 (church office), (01366) 386787 (home), or at
