Getting Answers

The special guest speaker at the CHEC conference was Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis. His foundation just built a huge creation museum in Kentucky. I would love to go there next year as a family!

Ken Ham talked about not thinking of the bible as just a religious book and then going somewhere else to learn about science, history, etc. He showed how the bible specifically discusses anthropology, archeology, astronomy, and lots of other sciences. It just all makes sense when he explains in it simple, easy to understand terms.

We also listened to a class he taught on Saturday about how the theory of evolution led directly to the promotion of racism. We bought the video of that class and also a video, Fearfully and Wonderfully Made, about the amazing complexity of the womb and the process that an egg goes through to be fertilized and lead to birth. It shows that evolution couldn't possibly have developed this system because if even one part didn't perform it's amazing function life would not have been able to continue. Mammals, including humans, could never have produced off spring (not to mention the fact that males and females would have had to miraculously evolved their interworkings at the exact same time since men's "little guys" can't make it to the egg without the direct help of the womb.)
