Young-Earth Creationists Don’t Believe That Creation Was Finished in Six Days

I have been having an interesting conversation on Facebook with someone who describes himself as a young-earth creationist. I was surprised when this individual said that it is a problem for Christians who accept evolution that God is said thereby to have made diseases and other things which Christ fought against. It seems to me [Read More...]

Admiral Ackbar on Genesis 3

Joel Watts shared the above photo on Facebook. I remember some people not getting the point when I shared the meme image with Admiral Ackbar at the Last Supper warning “It's a trap!!!” I wonder whether this one will be any different. As soon as I saw the image, it reminded me of another image [Read More...]

Rotating Earth vs. Biblical Literalism

This is what Ken Ham and other young-earth creationists would stand for if they were at least trying to be consistent Biblical literalists. This is not a parody, it is a genuine argument for the flat and fixed Earth viewpoint. To any young-earth creationist reading this, I would like to know whether or not you accept [Read More...]

Accepting the Bible

Praising the Bible is not acceptance of the Bible, and idolatrously attributing the divine attribute of inerrancy to the Bible, when the Bible itself condemns idolatry, most certainly isn’t acceptance of the Bible. Only accepting what the Bible actually says, even if it doesn’t agree with your claims, assumptions, and doctrines about the Bible, is [Read More...]

Ken Ham’s Kind Provision of Evidence to Support Fred Clark’s Contentions

In a comment on my post in which I shared a quote from Fred Clark about how various leaders of the “Religious Right” are similar to/different from Rev. Sun Myung Moon, I was asked for evidence to support those claims. Fortunately, Ken Ham was kind enough to provide it on his Facebook page. Ham described [Read More...]

Creationists Vote to Ditch Genesis 1-3 for Being Soft on Evolution

News from the future: At their 2025 annual meeting, a well-known young-earth creationist organization decided to finally take the step of removing Genesis 1-3 from their canon of Scripture. “It was long overdue,” said the organization’s longstanding president (who changed his name to an unprintable squiggle after discovering that his surname referred to a meat [Read More...]

Mined Quote from James Barr

There’s a quote, attributed to James Barr, which is popular among young-earth creationists. Here is the quote: Probably, so far as I know, there is no professor of Hebrew or Old Testament at any world-class university who does not believe that the writer(s) of Genesis 1–11 intended to convey to their readers the ideas that: [Read More...]

Do Young-Earth Creationists Deny that God Spoke Creation into Existence, or Creation out of Nothing?

It illustrates the selective literalism of young-earth creationists, that they never seem to realize the ludicrous conclusions they end up drawing could be outdone by still more bizarre ones if they were consistent in their literalism. As an example, consider the repeated references in Genesis 1 to God speaking. For speech – literal speech – [Read More...]

Don’t Follow the Way of Sinners, O Young-Earth Creationists!

In a conversation with a young-earth creationist here on this blog, I was struck by the irony of the fact that he offered, as one reason for rejecting evolution, the teaching of Scripture that we should not follow the ways or teachings of sinful human beings. How right he is, and how wrong at the [Read More...]

Young-Earth Creationists Substitute Words of Men in Place of the Word of God

Time and time again I have heard young-earth creationists say that one has to choose between what humans say about the origins of the cosmos and of human beings on the one hand, and the Word of God on the other. From a Christian perspective, this is exactly right. And young-earth creationists have chosen the [Read More...]
