Why Slow and Steady Wins the Race in Social Media

A lot of the times, new business pop up and their owners are so excited about this new venture that they think they need to see quick growth on social media. This mindset may lead them to make some rash decisions such as buying followers or spending too much on ads. And it may look impressive to investors to have gained over 1,000 followers in under a month, but savvy investors know there's more to it than that. And the day-to-day consumer probably won't even pay attention.

Let's get this out of the way right at the front: Do not buy followers. No one knows for sure, but it's estimated that about 15% of social media accounts are bots. That's 15% of about 3 billion. So, if you had every bot on Twitter following you, it would bring your follower count up to about 450 million. Sounds impressive, right? It does right up until you realize that bots aren't buying your products or telling any real people about you. You could make the case that the high number of foll…

Not Gonna Take It

"Darwin has for many people become a sacred cow.

"There's a sense that if you criticise Darwin you must be some kind of religious nut case.

"We might as well have said Einstein shouldn't have said what he did because it criticised Newton."

-Nick Cowan
Former head of chemistry at Blue Coat School, Liverpool

Imagine that. Darwin? Sacred? What, you mean, like, he started a religion? Or maybe he's the unwitting head of a religion started in his name?

Ya know what? Maybe evolutionists are right. Maybe Creationism has had its day in the sun. Maybe it's time for it to move on to make way for another point of view. It has, after all, been monopolizing the market for about . . . six . . . thousand . . . years. Yeah. How 'bout a little competition, eh, God? We don't need Your operating system on every PC, do we? (The problem with that is God made the computer, not just the software . . .)

"There's little enough time with the school curriculum to deal with real science like climate change, energy and the weather.

"This [creationism curriculum] is quite frankly a distraction that science teachers can well do without."

-Phil Willis
Commons science and technology committee

Ok, seriously now. Where do secularists get off demeaning Creation Science in such a dismissive manner?? Have you completely lost all sense of your scientific imperative to study every possible aspect of a given problem? And yes creation is a possible aspect! The fact is, Darwin fanboys, you don't have any more conclusive proof of a Big Bang than we have of God, so get off your high horse. Your fossil records are chock full of unexplained "evolutionary gaps," your theories have absolutely no testability and your "evidence" can be easily explained without your precious evolutionary process.

The fact is they are hiding God from us. They think that if they close their eyes we can't see Him. They think that by calling God a myth and a fairytale that they can lead us into the same deception they fell into themselves by someone else saying the same thing who came to believe it by someone else who said the same thing and somewhere down the line there's someone who got disillusioned because their finite minds couldn't wrap around some aspect of God that seems impossible in our three dimensional understanding; whether it's the Trinity or his omnipresence or even why bad things happen to good people. And for some reason they can't understand any of the relationship between creator and creation. They don't understand that a comic book character isn't going to understand its artist, or a fiction book character isn't going to understand its author - in the same way it is absurd and downright arrogant to think that if there is a Creator we should be able to empirically prove His existence.

Look, I'm open to the fact that maybe you just don't want to believe it. But I will systematically have each one of my extremities removed before I willingly allow you to call Creationism a fairytale. A half-witted glance at the Answers in Genesis website will tell you that people who believe in Creation are not dimwitted neanderthals who take every word they hear at face value. They test, they examine, they study and just like you guys "prove" evolution, they prove Creation.

The bottom line is that, as far as real science goes, both evolution and creation are on the exact. same. level. and I'm sick and tired of being told I'm stupid just because I believe in something that you're to stupid to understand! (and I am, too.)
