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

Published

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.”

Florida Republican Matt Gaetz admits Trump’s legal defense was ‘like an 8th grade book report’ — only worse

Published

Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) admitted that President Donald Trump's team of lawyers weren't quite the legal eagles that he thinks they might be, said Politico reporter Andrew Desiderio.

Questioned about his take on the way the case is unfolding in the Senate, Gaetz said that the House presented it like it was going to be on "cable news." For many that may be an insult, but it appears to Gaetz that was a compliment.

Desiderio said that Gaetz then lamented that the White House presented their case more like “an 8th-grade book report.”
