Admonitions to a Disappointed Young-Earther

August 23, 2015 by


This article was also published at SBC Voices by Ken Hamrick Recently, I came across a paper in the Journal for Baptist Theology & Ministry, written by Dr. Kenneth Keathley in 2013, entitled, “Confessions of a Disappointed Young-Earther.”[1] The piece is well done and gives an informative summary of the various arguments and supposed problems of the […]

Is Denying Evolution Just an American Thing? | Around the World with Ken Ham

December 16, 2014 by


In an interview with NewsMax, Bill Nye “The Science Guy” claimed that denying evolution is something that is unique to the United States and that the controversy is not a “problem anywhere else.” Now, he said this probably because America has access to more apologetics resources to support the biblical creation position than any other […]

It’s a Battle Between Worldviews! | Around the World with Ken Ham

December 15, 2014 by


A study conducted by a group of University of Alabama researchers has been making its way around the Internet, so I wanted to comment on it. This study highlights that the creation/evolution controversy is really a worldview-based battle. This study was an attempt to discover the role of religious belief in the acceptance of evolution. […]

The Debate Has Changed | Answers in Genesis

December 1, 2014 by


by Mike Matthews […] Within the first three minutes of the Ken Ham vs. Bill Nye debate, it was obvious how radically the creation-evolution debate has changed since the 1970s and 1980s. When Bill Nye “the Science Guy” quipped that creationism is not appropriate for children, the video went viral on YouTube. Ken Ham, president […]

A Discussion with J.W. Wartick on Recent Creation and Apparent Age

November 17, 2014 by


by Ken Hamrick Apologist J. W. Wartick recently posted an article on his blog, entitled, “Do Young Earth Creationists Advocate Appearance of Age?” He is an Old-Earth Creationist who argues that appearance of age would be deception on God’s part. I disagree, and have been engaging him in discussion in the comment section. You might find […]

Can Evolutionary Clues Cure Cancer? | Answers in Genesis

November 3, 2014 by


A physicist and an astrobiologist team up to explain to medical doctors how knowledge of evolution holds the key to curing cancer. Scientific American: Did Cancer Evolve to Protect Us? Curing cancer is high on everyone’s wish list for the 21st century. Could the key be billions of year’s old? A National Cancer Institute project […]

Exciting Happenings at Ark Property! | Around the World with Ken Ham

October 25, 2014 by


These are exciting times at AiG. The life-size Noah’s Ark project is moving ahead in leaps and bounds. This past week, the board of directors met at Answers in Genesis. They were given a detailed update on the Ark Encounter project, to be built off I-75 (between Cincinnati and Lexington, Kentucky). Because of the intense construction […]

Will “Creation” Be Dead in 20 Years? | Around the World with Ken Ham

October 23, 2014 by


Earlier this month, Bill Nye (TV’s famous “Science Guy”) appeared on Global News’s The Morning Show on October 1, 2014 and, speaking about people who believe in biblical creation, boldly predicted that “In another 20 years those guys will be just about out of business.” Other secularists (I recall some back in the 1970s) have made similar […]

Is the Ebola Epidemic Evolution in Action? | Answers in Genesis

October 20, 2014 by


by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell, Dr. Georgia Purdom, and Dr. Tommy Mitchell on October 20, 2014 The Ebola epidemic in West Africa has already claimed over 4,000 lives—more than all previous Ebola epidemics combined—and it is showing no sign of slowing. The first (and we hope the only) Ebola death on American soil occurred in Dallas, […]

“Creationism Is About … ” Well, the Bible! | Around the World with Ken Ham

October 17, 2014 by


According to a science and religion blogger with the not-so-reliable Huffington Post, the evolution/creation debate is not about science or even the Bible—it’s about gay marriage! Well, that’s certainly news to me! Writer Paul Wallace claims that he could never understand why creationists reject the “tsunami of unambiguous evidence that forces us to believe in […]

Review of Hugh Ross’s Navigating Genesis | Answers in Genesis

October 10, 2014 by


Dr. Hugh Ross’s Navigating Genesis: A Scientist’s Journey Through Genesis 1–11 is, sadly, a great tool for steering the uninformed and the gullible into a shipwreck of faith, not for removing stumbling blocks to faith as Dr. Ross misguidedly attempts. Guided by his devotion to the secular dating methods, Dr. Ross distorts the Bible’s claims […]

An Irenic & Vigorous Creationism Discussion at SBC Voices

September 23, 2014 by


by Ken Hamrick Most debates between Old-Earthers and Young-Earthers deteriorate to anger and ad hominem after about 100 comments. Recently, SBC Voices posted my article, “Helping Old-Earth Creationists Face the Supernatural Question,” which had been posted here. The discussion at Voices went to 308 comments before Dave Miller shut it down—probably for reasons of length. […]

Helping Old-Earth Creationists Face the Supernatural Question

September 16, 2014 by


by Ken Hamrick Instead of arguing for or against the scientific evidence, or arguing the merits of possible exegetical ways to reconcile Scripture with a billions-of-years chronology, I propose that—for the sake of argument-–we eliminate the evidence question all together. We can do this by accepting all the scientific claims at face value, and still […]

Recent Fiat Creationism: Rendering Evolution & Old-Earth Evidence Irrelevant

January 29, 2014 by


This article was written to answer the questions, “What if evolution were proven to be true? How would that affect your faith?”  by Ken Hamrick One of the best ways to defeat an opposing argument is to render its evidence irrelevant—establish that even if their evidence is accepted for the sake of argument, your position […]

How Long Will You Falter Between Two Opinions?

November 21, 2013 by


by Ken Hamrick 1 Kings 18:21 NKJV, “And Elijah came to all the people, and said, ‘How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.’ But the people answered him not a word. If the Lord is a God of supernatural actions, then believe […]

To Which Will You Give the Benefit of the Doubt: ‘Science’ or Scripture?

September 1, 2012 by


The whole framework of science versus theology is incorrect. Science can only observe what is observable. When they venture to explain origins, they venture out of the purview of science and into the purview of theology and philosophy.

Don’t Be Fooled: Day Means Day

August 19, 2012 by


The claim that the word “day” means only a measurement of time is not an accurate claim.
