Thanks for posting this. Quite a production...

It must be a most amazing coincidence, but I had many of those same thoughts myself a few months back! Hmmmm...

This was the entire quote of the creator of this video. Very interesting indeed.

"Although, I support Answers in Genesis stance against the Darwinist faith and the religion of NeoAtheism, the dubious apologetics of AIG has reached a new low. I can't hold back a public rebuke because they conspired to distort the sermons of the great Christian Pastor CH Spurgeon.

Pastor Spurgeon had no problem with the Earth being millions of years old and his sermons and books lead me to believe he held the Gap theory point of view which I happen to share.

This is from a sermon The Power of the Holy Ghost, June 17, 1855 by Spurgeon delivered in dated June 17 1855, which was before the publication of The Origin of Species, so the criticism that it is a compromise with the theory of Evolution is invalid.

I quote Pastor Spurgeon:

"We know not how remote the period of the creation of this globe may be-certainly many millions of years before the time of Adam. Our planet has passed through various stages of existence, and different kinds of creatures have lived on its surface, all of which have been fashioned by God."

Spurgeon, C. H. (1998). Vol. 1: Spurgeon's Sermons: Volume 1 (electronic ed.). Logos Library System; Spurgeon's Sermons. Albany, OR: Ages Software.

I happen to have all of 63 volumes of Spurgeons sermons in my libronix library so I know I have the original correct unaltered version. Apparently, the young-Earth organization Answers in Genesis doesnt want its readers to know that 19th century preacher Charles Spurgeon had no problem with an Earth that is millions of years old.

Compare the real version

With the Answers in Genesis version:

"For His invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse." (Ro 1:20)

AIG is giving men an excuse. Dishonest apologetics and creation science brings disgrace to Christianity and fuels Atheism. Please call AIG to repent and post a public apology.

Looks like the dishonesty of AIG on the creation and Genesis is just as dishonest as the futurist are with the Book of Revelation and eschatology.

Most of the YEC organizations, including AiG, are dispensational to the core.

The few that aren't (any besides Apologetics Press?) quote the dispensational YECs so frequently, that their entire YEC doctrine is compromised by dispensationalism.

I think it is ironic that on the same page that AIG misquotes Spurgeon, they have this in the sidebar:

Already Gone

In the first scientific study of its kind, the “Beemer Report” reveals startling facts discovered through 20,000 phone calls and detailed surveys of a thousand 20–29 year olds who used to attend evangelical churches on a regular basis, but have since left it behind.

Hmmm? I wonder if there is some correlation there?

Gary Demar wrote an article about that a few months back and there was some back and forth from AIG and Gary.We posted on some of it here.
