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 >>
Pope Francis has slammed fundamentalism across religions, but warned that there are many Roman Catholics who believe they have "absolute truth" and are fundamentalists themselves.
The Vatican leader took aim at fundamentalism within the Church during an in-flight press conference at the conclusion of his three-country tour of Africa, calling it a "sickness that is in all religions."
"We Catholics have some — and not some, many — who believe they possess the absolute truth and go ahead dirtying the other with calumny, with disinformation, and doing evil. They do evil. I say this because it is my Church," the pope said, according to Catholic News Service. more >>

Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham responded to a recent story of the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby doubting God's presence in the wake of the Paris terror attacks, by stating that the Bible warns that things will only get worse.
"There have been many times that I've asked God why. But the Bible clearly warns that as we draw to the end of this present age, things are going to get worse. There are going to be wars and rumors of wars, famines, disease, earthquakes, pestilence, and these are just the beginnings," Graham said in a Facebook message on Monday.
