Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has said that his Ark Encounter project, the life-sized replica of Noah's Ark, was built to be part of what he calls the "front lines of the spiritual war" going on in America.
"We are in a spiritual war right now in the U.S. Generations of young people have been raised to believe that they evolved, there is no God, and they make the rules. But, as Christians, we know that 'we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places (Ephesians 6:12)," Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog earlier this week.
"That's why we built the Creation Museum and are building the Ark Encounter. We want to reach as many people as we can with the message of biblical authority and the Gospel of Jesus Christ," he added. more >>
Creation Museum CEO and President Ken Ham has spoken out against evangelicals who embrace evolution and deny that Adam, the first man, was created by supernatural means.
"Evangelicals who embrace evolution have a few proposals for interpreting Adam, including that he's the head of a tribe, an archetype of humanity, or that he did not even exist," Ham said on Tuesday, and linked to an article by Answers in Genesis' U.K. General Manger Simon Turpin.
In the article, Turpin argues that an increasing number of evangelicals today are losing their faith in a literal interpretation of the creation account in Genesis, and do not believe that Adam was created by supernatural means. more >>
The Creation Museum's Ken Ham has accused Google of promoting what he called the "atheistic religion of naturalism" with its front page illustration of evolution on Tuesday.
Google's drawing, or Doodle, featured an illustration of "Lucy," an Australopithecus specimen considered by scientists to be an early human ancestor.
"Google Doodle highlights where our culture is headed. Our supposed evolutionary ancestry is increasingly being celebrated — but it's nothing more than a major tenet of the religion of naturalism," Ham wrote on his Answers in Genesis blog in response. more >>
Is faith in God just a holdover from our evolutionary past? That's what some scientists are saying, but their explanations are more like science fiction.
If there's one area of science that shows how ill-equipped naturalism is to make sense of the world, it's evolutionary psychology — the study of how evolution shaped the way we think, feel, and act. Even among outspoken Darwinists, this field is known for sensationalism and outright nonsense.
Take one study from Newcastle University that claimed to explain why boys prefer blue and girls prefer pink. The scientists' answer? Because tens of thousands of years ago, our male ancestors had to watch for predators silhouetted against the blue sky, while women had to focus on gathering berries, which are usually pink. I'm not kidding. This was published in a peer-reviewed, scientific journal. more >>
Ken Ham, CEO and president of the Creation Museum, has announced that the grand opening of the Ark Encounter will take place on July 7, 2016, at Williamstown, Kentucky, and will initially be open for "40 days and 40 nights."
"We are so excited that the construction progress and schedule landed on this 7/7 date. Genesis 7:7 states that Noah and his family entered the Ark. So it's fitting we allow the public to enter the life-size Ark on 7/7," Ham revealed.
In anticipation of large crowds, the Noah's Ark project will operate for 40 days straight, before starting normal hours of operation on Aug. 15. more >>
Hillsong NYC Pastor Carl Lentz was featured on Comedy Central's "The Nightly Show" on Thursday, where he debated the compatibility of religion and science with famous astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson.
While partly a comedic segment, the two offered their views on whether scientific discoveries harm religious belief, with Lentz stating that religious people shouldn't be afraid of science.
