Ken Ham thinks he knows something
If you’re not familiar with Ken Ham, then you are officially a fly by night atheist. How could you not know about this crazy Aussie? He’s the man behind the Creation Museum, perhaps the largest and most expensive temple to ignorance ever created. With a 27 million dollar budget, and over half a million visitors since it opened in 2007, the Creation Museum is a snapshot in time, a reminder the human race still has a long way to go before being able to officially call itself “enlightened”.
Ken commissioned a study recently. Turns out young evangelicals are abandoning their faith in droves, and Ken thinks he knows why. He believes Christians are allowing secular values to poison the minds of children, and the only solution is a literal interpretation of the Bible. If kids are rigidly taught the Earth is only 6000 years old, then they are less likely to be negatively influenced by pesky things like science and logic.
Ironically, I think the reasons so many evangelicals are leaving their faith is actually BECAUSE of all the deception on the part of evangelical ministers. Once young adults realize they have been lied to and deceived, why would they stick around? The truth is, Ken, with today’s modern technology people are becoming more and more informed, and it’s almost impossible to keep kids ignorant. Don’t you think they’ll be bitter when they realize your creationist “science” is a bunch of bullshit nonsense?
Thanks for the study though, Ken. You confirmed something I’ve always believed; that evangelism is on it’s way down. The future looks bright, Ken; just not for you and your ilk.
