Uh oh, you guys. We evil atheists have made Ken Ham angry. You see, we “lashed out” at a Christian school in South Carolina after an image of a truly ridiculous “science” test given at the school was made public online and went viral. And now he’s clutching his pearls over it all. He even reveals the name of the school, which was previously unknown:
Today’s lead article on the Answers in Genesis website covers this issue in more detail—I have provided a link to it below. But before reading the article, take a look at the following quotes to give you an idea of some of the things that have been said by secularists who are undertaking this attack on Blue Ridge Christian Academy. The school received some vicious emails from atheists.
Many atheists are outraged over the fact that a Christian school is teaching biblical creation. Many of them didn’t believe that the question sheet was real, while others called the school irresponsible and ignorant for teaching that God’s Word is trustworthy. Some of the comments have been incredibly nasty. I’ve included a few below to give you an idea (though I’ve left off the web links because these atheist sites often have very objectionable content), with vulgar words removed as indicated by brackets:
And here are his best examples of “vicious” and “incredibly nasty” comments about the test:
Science is not trivial. If the school fails at science THIS dramatically (giving wrong information is worse than giving no information), how good they are with other subjects hardly makes up for it . . . I won’t get into a religious debate here but religion is not science and does not help us know about the natural world. The Bible is a [word removed] textbook on nature. Belief is not scientific and does not belong in a science class.
This science test was originally posted on r/atheism. Snopes.com picked it up thinking it was a hoax. Surely, no one with their wits about them would teach a child these things. Sadly, this is an actual test. This is what passes for “science” in at least one Christian school.
ABSOLUTE [word removed]! THIS IS A SOUTH CAROLINA’S SCHOOL’S SCIENCE QUIZ!
I truly fear for humanity.
See… I knew it…. and it’s from old hammy boy with his dino’s of eden [word removed]… It is a private christian school so you can’t really do anything but what the dad is doing…. and that’s take his daughter out… BUT how can you say that a child’s education is compatible with the standards of other educational institutions when they are being taught this [word removed].
Wow, how…mundane. It’s vicious and nasty to call bullshit “bullshit”? Incidentally, here’s the test, in case you hadn’t seen it:
