Fairytale Land and Theorytale Land

Eric Hovind May 3rd, 2011

Dora The Explorer

My son was watching Dora the explorer this morning and they went to fairytale land. The magic words you had to say to get there were “once upon a time.”  Once inside fairytale land, just about anything can happen. Poor Boots ate the banana from the Wicked Witch and fell fast asleep. The only way to wake up sleeping Boots was to have a princess give him a hug.

Fairytale Land and Theorytale Land

As I listened to this while drinking my coffee, I couldn’t help but see the parallels between the Dora story of fairytale land and the evolution story of Theorytale land. How? Well, to get into Dora’s fairytale, you had to say “once upon a time.” To get into the evolutionists’ theorytale, you say “millions of years ago.” Once you are in the fairytale, anything can happen, just like once you’re in the theorytale, anything can happen. Think about it: In the Dora’s fairytale, she made rocks sing, got a magic brush that made her hair grow long, and brought the moon down to the earth; in the theorytale land of evolution, something can come from nothing, life can come from non-life, intelligence can come from non-intelligence, order can come from disorder, and structure can come from randomness—truly anything can happen.

In Dora’s fairytale, Boots ate a banana from the wicked witch that made him fall fast asleep. He could not hear anything, or see anything, or say anything. He went blind and dumb. Just like when you are in the theorytale land of evolution, you fall fast asleep and cannot hear the heavens declaring the glory of God. You cannot see simple truths and you refuse to listen to truly impeccable evidence that design demands a Designer. Instead, you swallow the idea of humanism from teachers who say things like: the purpose of life is the happiness of man, the natural world is all there is, there is no God and there are no absolutes. This deep sleep causes you to not be able to hear the truth, it closes your eyes to reality, and you can do nothing to wake yourselves up. The more you try to use your intellect to prove the humanism that you have been taught, the deeper the sleep becomes. Being deaf and dumb, you cannot see or hear the truth that so many people are trying to show you.

In Dora’s story, the only way to wake up the sleeping Boots was to give him a hug. In the evolution story, the only way to wake up the sleeping evolutionists is to do exactly what the Bible says to do—show them love, allow the Holy Spirit to work in their lives, and show them how their world view opposes itself. The best way to do this is to avoid some questions that the Bible describes as foolish. 2 Tim 2: 24–26 tells us that we should not only avoid foolish questions that just bring up arguments, but it also tells us that God can grant people the ability to repent so that they can see the truth. 1 Corinthians tells us that the unsaved person is blind and dumb to spiritual things and that they cannot see the truth.

To the Evolutionists:

I can promise you that you will never see the truth by trusting in your supposed autonomous ability to reason. You must look outside yourself to your creator. Acknowledge Jesus, even if you don’t understand everything, and repent of what you know you have done wrong. Then and only then will you have the opportunity to see the truth.

To Christians:

There are ways that we should not argue, and there are questions that we should not ask. Your job, as someone who has been revealed the truth, is to love as Christ has loved us and instruct those that oppose themselves (evolutionists) in a way that reveals their foolishness so that we can point them to God.
