Apparently, Ken Ham called foul on Dan Wilkinson, for his column that held Ham (and more specifically, the inflexible and scientifically unworkable picture of the Christian faith he propagates) responsible for young Christians’ mass exodus from the church. Hammy’s main beef with Dan was that he offered no research to back up his point.
Well, here you go, K-Ham. We echo Wilkinson’s assertion that the false dichotomy between faith and science that you and your like-minded cronies perpetuate is largely responsible for the modern-day church’s irrelevance (particularly within intelligentsia), and we offer the following two points of evidence in support. See here for the results of a five-year study by the Barna Group that indicated the church’s perceived antagonism toward science is one of the top reasons young adults are leaving it, and here for a personal story by a young woman who indeed left her faith after learning that her parents and church family had lied to her about evolution.
We don’t expect any amount of evidence to dissuade K-Ham from the idea that he’s sort some of divinely appointed crusader, but perhaps we can give those who follow him blindly something to think about.
