A young earth creationist is accusing Sea World of "evolutionary indoctrination." Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, says the new dinosaur exhibit at the marine mammal park in Australia pushes Darwinism on children.
Ham's family visited Dinosaur Island, the new attraction at Sea World on the Gold Coast, Australia, which opened in June and will remain open until next summer. After the trip, his son-in-law concluded, "As we saw at Sea World, most parents had no idea what they were doing to their children by taking them to this new 'temple' of evolutionary secular humanism and letting them be indoctrinated in this anti-God religion."
Ham made additional observations on his blog Tuesday, saying that the exhibit has one purpose: "to convince children and mums and dads that Darwinian evolution is fact and that birds are actually dinosaurs (because dinosaurs supposedly grew feathers and became birds)." more >>
Pat Robertson has been accused by evangelical Christian and creationism proponent Ken Ham of "destructive teaching," after the televangelist stated that the existence of dinosaurs is evidence that Young Earth Creationists are wrong about the planet being 6,000 years old.
Christian Broadcasting Network spokesman Chris Roslan told The Christian Post on Friday, however, that "Dr. Robertson stands by his comments."
The controversy arose earlier this week when Robertson, co-hosting his "The 700 Club" program on CBN, dismissed the theory that the earth is only 6,000 years old, which Ken Ham, CEO and founder of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum, took offense to. more >>
LAKE FOREST, Calif. – Contrary to what many scientists believe, science points toward a creator of the universe instead of away from God, says best-selling author and Christian apologist Lee Strobel.
Speaking at a two-day Christian apologetics event at Saddleback Church in Southern California, Strobel kicked-off the series of weekend messages given by five different apologists by talking about The Case for a Creator.
"There are some scientists that will tell you that the evidence of science points away from a Creator. That it disproves the existence of a Creator," said the atheist-turned-Christian and former legal editor of The Chicago Tribune. more >>
Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), a Catholic, said in a recent interview that the age of the Earth is a mystery as there are multiple theories out there.
"Whether the Earth was created in 7 days, or 7 actual eras, I'm not sure we'll ever be able to answer that," he told GQ magazine for its December issue.
The 42-year-old senator, who is considered a rising star in the GOP, is part of the Catholic Church. Rubio was born into a Roman Catholic family, later attended The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when he and his family moved to Las Vegas, and then left after he felt "called back" to the Catholic Church when he was 12 years old. more >>
In a tongue-and-cheek political jab, critics of Georgia's Republican Congressman Paul Broun have started a campaign to push famed naturalist Charles Darwin as the write-in candidate against Broun in the upcoming Nov. 6 congressional election.
The small, grassroots campaign was begun by Atlanta-based radio talk show host Neal Boortz, a self-described libertarian political commentator, who said Broun's previous comments about evolution being "straight from the pit of hell" makes the Republican Party look bad.
"It makes Republicans look like knee-dragging, still-tending, tobacco-spitting Neanderthals," Boortz said on his radio show, "The Neal Boortz Show," earlier this week. more >>
An atheist group in San Diego, Calif., is planning to protest the unveiling of two new expansions to the Creation and Earth History Museum that will be celebrated on Saturday, Sept. 29, with the group's leader describing Americans' belief in creationism as dangerous.
"The main idea behind the protest is to get media coverage to let people know that creationism is false pseudo-science. Most people that are angry enough to see our education dumbed-down will take part and participate," said Bruce Gleason of the Backyard Skeptics of Orange County in a phone interview with The Christian Post on Friday.
Gleason is expecting around 40 people from different secular groups to participate in the demonstration at the Creation Museum, which is opening two new exhibits. "The Tabernacle" is a 2,015-square-foot expansion that features a theater seating presentation on the Old Testament tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, and the Holy of Holies. "The Age of the Earth Cave" exhibit, on the other hand, presents rare minerals said to contain a date that defends a Young Earth creationist view that the planet is 10,000 years old, offering also a 300-square-foot experience of touring an underground cavern. more >>
