Creationist Ken Ham: Science has ‘contaminated’ kids into believing in evolution and LGBT rights

Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham argued over the weekend that the church was losing younger members because they have been “contaminated” by learning about science in public schools.

In a post on his Answers in Genesis blog, the creationist warned that Millennials would “fundamentally change the culture and the church” if they did not turn away from secularism.

“I believe this is a huge warning sign to the church. When a generation no longer builds its worldview on the foundation of the absolute authority of God’s Word, the new generation begins to question everything it says, including its morality,” Hamm opined, lamenting that many young Christians “also believe science has disproved the book of Genesis and that the Flood did not occur during Noah’s day.”

“Doubting Genesis has had horrendous consequences,” he lamented. “It should come as no surprise that as generations are trained to disbelieve the Bible’s account of origins, they also increasingly doubt the rest of the Bible. That’s a part of the greater Satanic strategy that had its origin in the Garden of Eden.”

According to Ham, acceptance of same-sex marriage was a “direct result” of doubting the Bible’s creation story.

“It is the big ‘elephant in the room’ that most Christian leaders refuse to acknowledge. Or worse, they endorse compromise by accepting the evolutionary idea of millions of years,” Ham opined. “In most cases, the twentysomethings said their high school teachers convinced them not to trust the Bible!”

He added: “Let’s face it: children are being contaminated as a result of their secular education, the secular media, and their secular friends. In a world of no absolutes, evolution, sex outside marriage, gay “marriage,” attacks on gender distinction, humanism, and false religions—children are being tossed to and fro.”

Ham argued that the solution was to instill Christian doctrine into children by homeschooling them.

“When parents humbly start with the Word of God and build ‘from the foundation up,’ it makes a world of difference. Starting with the logical foundations of all the doctrine in Genesis, not trying to prove the Bible with science, but using the Bible to understand science, parents can teach children how to defend the faith by giving them answers to skeptical questions of the age,” he wrote. “This is how we need to teach our children—from the time they are born until the time they leave home.”

Video of the exchange was posted on Twitter by Nikki McCann Ramirez, a researcher at the watchdog group Media Matters for America.

Chad Wolf’s authority is ‘illegitimate’: Hispanic Caucus chairman demands DHS chief ‘resign in disgrace’

Published

Immigrant rights groups and Texas Democrats are urging a review on the legality of Trump administration immigration policies after a government watchdog found two of the White House’s top immigration officials are not legally eligible to serve in their respective positions.

The Government Accountability Office on Friday determined that Chad Wolf, acting Department of Homeland Security secretary, and Ken Cuccinelli, a senior official performing deputy secretary duties, aren’t legally qualified to hold those posts.

United We Dream, an advocacy group pushing for immigration reform, said the GAO’s conclusion calls into question the latest guidance from the DHS on the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, or DACA, program that was initiated in 2012.
