An Example of How Answers in Genesis Does Violence to the Bible, and Not Just Science

Recent discussions with young-earth creationists have illustrated well how young-earth creationists do serious harm to the Bible, and not only science, in their bizarre attempts to treat the Bible as though it were a scientific textbook and science textbooks as though they were someone’s Bible.

How Young Earth Creationism Denies The Creator (1 Picture = 1000 Words)

I thought the picture above (which a friend shared with me on Facebook – since it was done privately, I won’t attribute it to him unless he says it is OK to do so) said everything that needs to. The young-earth creationist denies God in many ways: twisting the Bible when it suits them; demeaning [Read More…]
