The funny thing is that the founder of modern day YEC accepted there were many inconsistencies with YEC but his forerunners see nothing wrong with it!

 

I cant wait when Answer in Genesis comes back to my city; I have so many questions!

Sad... just so very sad :(

Absolutely infuriating!!  I agree, this is child abuse.  There's got to be a way to put a stop to this kind of bullshit.

Don't forget, this man, Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis and the primary person behind the Creation "Museum" in Tennessee, so that explains a lot. He has an agenda and it's all based on money. (Surprise.)

 

The saddest part was the woman that claimed it was "easier' to explain creation than evolution. She is a prime example of the failure of the education system in the U.S. "Don't make me think, spoon feed me the information!"

I agree. Child abuse is the best description.

This video is a bit older, but Jesus Camp is a great example as well.

Do you think there is there a way to legislate this out of existence?

Or is it too esoteric?

The level of ignorance is astounding. This is mind control.

Yes – It definitely is child abuse. I did not expect so many comments but it is reassuring that it is not just me that gets angry about it. To be honest “furious” would be a better word. Yes – they are the same scumbags that are building the “Ark in the Park” in Kentucky -

I have shown this to some Christians over the last few weeks. They say the same thing. “Oh that’s terrible – those poor children.” However they teach (or allow others) their own kids practically the same things. I tell them that “Noah or Adam and Eve did not exist – they are Myths.”

They never see the similarities. I even had a Jehovah Witness tell me that they had not told their 8 years old about Evolution because she was too young to understand it. Of course they are never too young to teach them about concepts like “Hell” or getting fucking “raptured”. All religions are like this except some are more screwed up than others.

I look forward to the day AIG set foot in my country. Bring the marshmallows folks.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men – Frederick Douglass.

Wow. Taxpayers will pay $37 million for that ark.

I'm guessing it can't be stopped because taxpayers fund all sorts of other fairytale venues???

Prayer doesn't work.  The damage is already done.  These people who abuse and indoctrinate kids this way should be tarred and feathered.  With any luck, some of these kids will be resilient and grow up to rediscover curiosity and inquisitiveness.

Morality IS subjective.  Our concepts of right and wrong are evolutionary products, based on our social structure and a need to maintain balance.  Even the animals understand the concept of altruism.  And if God sets "absolute rules", why do so many Christians have so many differing viewpoints on what is right and what is wrong?  Why was God always talking to people in the Bible, but not now?  And if something is good because God commands it, doesn't that make the concept of good arbitrary, as was often the case in the Bible?  And if God commands it because it is good, why not just cut out the middle man and say that concepts of good are intrinsic to our moral makeup?
