The blog Bible, Wheels, and Brains: Free Thinkers Exploring Religion, Science and the Mind nails a former Church of God minister who claims he left a devout belief in evolution to believing in creationism.
That former minister is Rod McQueen.
Reading McQueen's stories you would assume he was a devout evolutionist well trained in all of it's complexities through college and further study on the subject. So just where did McQueen get all of the nasty evolutionary understanding from? High school! High school educators had such a rich deep understanding of evolution that McQueen bought it hook line and sinker. The trouble is, if you asked a regular high school student today to explain evolutionary theory they could not do it. Most adults can't except for a few basics. Most high school students today can't even understand US and world history, so how in the hell do they understand evolution?
Rod McQueen has a ministry called "Dawn to Dusk" where he has many articles detailing biblical creation stories and mocking of evolution.
So what caused McQueen to see the light after such a deep in depth study at the age of twelve? All thanks and glory need to go to Herbert W Armstrong and Ambassador College! The source of all real understanding on ALL subjects.
Bible, Wheels, and Brains says:
Back in July CWH posted the supposed Confession of a Former Evolutionist which was written by a Rod McQueen, a long-time pastor in Herbert Armstrong's hyper-fundamentalist cult called the Worldwide Church of God. In his "confession" he said he "was raised on the milk of evolutionary theory. In year twelve at high school, our biology class required an in-depth study of the theory of evolution. I was zealous for what was taught. I swallowed the supportive evidence as if it were proof. Not mindlessly, mind you; I really felt it was quite compelling." OK - so in HIGH SCHOOL he was a convinced "evolutionist." What happened after that? He went straight from High School to study Theology at Ambassador College, founded by cult leader Herbert W. Armstrong! Here is what Rod says about his history on his own website:
"Former evolutionist" my ass. He was a HIGH SCHOOL KID who went straight into theology at a cult's own school! What a load of crap.
