P. Z. Myers shared a link to a wonderful account of a science teacher responding effectively to the inane “were you there?” question that Ken Ham and other ignoramuses think are clever. Click through to read it.
I was there, in a way. I was also in a supernova billions and billions of years ago.
were you there when matthew 5:22 was written? it is not necessary to act like a third grader and call names in order to make a point, and it is not following Christ. make your points in a respectful, dignified manner, and people can evaluate your reasoning. call names and you will be discounted as an immature child.
Indeed. Although we can perhaps forgive a child in school for still being immature, those adults like Ken Ham who encourage children to behave in this reprehensible way are the ones that really deserve criticism.
