It’s no secret that Answers in Genesis’ Ken Ham has issues with reality. His decades-long war on it is proof enough of that. But in a Facebook post yesterday, he took that animosity to new depths, describing reality-based science lessons as a form of child abuse.
Intellectual child abuse: when kids are taught they’re just animals in an evolutionary process. This morning I taught kids the creation/gospel message!
The young people today in Alabama learned they’re not made in the image of an ape — they’re created in the image of God.
In his mind, it’s okay to teach kids that the only escape from burning in hellfire for all of eternity is to accept a set of rules and ideas without question, and that this escape is a manifestation of the most perfect love mankind can aspire to.
But real science?! We can’t let that happen now, can we?
