Answers in Genesis CEO and President Ken Ham has said that Christians who believe in evolution are compromising on God's truth, which can also lead to falsely justifying adultery and other "sinful tendencies."
"One of the problems with compromise in one area of Scripture is where do you stop compromising? If Christians accept the idea of human evolution, then why not accept the idea that our sinful tendencies are really just evolved tendencies?" Ham asked in a Facebook post on Monday.
"But this completely changes the Bible's definition of sin and why we sin and face the penalty of death for our sin, 'Therefore, just as through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned' (Romans 5:12). A belief in evolution strikes right at the heart of the Gospel!" more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against the upcoming Disney Pixar film "The Good Dinosaur," which he said is likely to have evolution themes. Ham also said that even though some find the idea "ridiculous," there is "plenty of evidence" to show that dinosaurs and man once lived together.
In a blog post on his Answers in Genesis website earlier this week, Ham commented on the upcoming "The Good Dinosaur" movie, about a relationship between a human boy and a dinosaur, which is set to be released in November.
Ham noted that it's rare that Hollywood portrays dinosaurs and humans living together, but said that that the film's trailer exposes its "evolutionary presuppositions." more >>
A Louisiana school district is speaking out in defense of teachers who use the Bible "to present alternative viewpoints" when teaching on evolution, despite claims from secular scientists that teaching Creationism is "unconstitutional and scientifically-misleading."
Josh Rosenau, spokesperson for the National Center for Science Education, a nonprofit that promotes the teaching of evolution in schools, asserted on the group's website that "one in eight high school biology teachers advocate for Creationism, even though it's 'unconstitutional,'" in response reports that some teachers in Bossier Parish Schools based in Benton, Louisiana, are using the Bible when teaching on evolution.
Rosenau's comments were a reaction to an article in the left-leaning Slate magazine that reportedly acquired emails from faculty in Bossier Parish wherein a science teacher was said to be teaching about Creationism in the classroom and using materials that included the Bible. more >>
Montana students have a constitutional right to go on a public school field trip to a dinosaur museum, despite threats from secularists that a lawsuit would follow, according to a legal group based in Florida.
The Liberty Counsel, a conservative legal group, contacted officials at Glendive School District last Thursday regarding the public school system's cancellation of a field trip to the Glendive Dinosaur & Fossil Museum after administrators received a letter from the Washington D.C.-based secular group, Americans United for Separation of Church and State, threatening a potential lawsuit if the students went on the field trip because the museum teaches the biblical view of Creation.
The secular group's threat of a lawsuit led to the school district's decision to cancel the field trip for its elementary school students. more >>
The Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has responded to separate claims by two former Christian NASA astronauts who said that it is possible for believers to accept science and evolution and the idea that the universe is several billions of years old, by arguing that such beliefs go against the Bible.
Ham argued in a blog post on Answers in Genesis that such scientists "are ignoring many theological and scientific problems — and once again are confusing observational science and historical science."
Ham responded to two articles — one from May, in which Leslie Wickman, a scientist and former astronaut who once served as a Hubble Space Telescope engineer, argued that science and religion are not incompatible. more >>
