Ken Hamm, the founder of the Creation Museum, that travesty of science education in Kentucky and head of the Answers in Genesis Web site has put the whole battle between science and religion into a crucible and muddled it down to the single most important point of contention: Was Adam and Eve real? Hamm told The Christian Post, "Once we reject Adam and Eve, the rest of the scriptures fall like dominoes." And that's the crux of the whole Christian dilemma. If Adam and Eve didn't exist as the first couple on earth, created with the rest of the universe 6,000 years ago, then Christianity is a lie. Hamm admits it.
So if Genesis is not really history then Christianity is nothing but stories and fables. It means there was no original sin. It means that we didn't need Jesus to die for those sins, because they did not exist. And that's why Hamm is leading the cause to make sure everybody, starting with little kids, follows his delusion. He can't admit that it has been scientifically proven beyond any doubt that the world is billions of years old and that all living things have evolved. That is as much a fact as gravity and it has just as much proof, not merely anecdotal evidence, but clear, unadulterated scientific proof. And, like all Young Earth Creationists, Hamm "sees no evil."
But his admission speaks volumes. Adam and Eve were not real. There was no worldwide flood. The universe was not created in six days. There was no original sin. Jesus did not die for our sins (or maybe he did but it was in vein). And Christianity is just one big fat deception. These are not my beliefs; these are facts. Facts are, by definition, bits of truth that are supported by lots and lots of empirical evidence. Once everybody realizes that simple fact, we can all stop wasting time believing in legends and start doing the real work of self improvement and helping the whole of mankind.
