Ken Ham Fears Christian Colleges will be “the Next Generation Harvard”
The Ken Ham-reality disconnect, as unwittingly reported by the Christian Post:
While Ham recognizes that “there are a handful of colleges that will take a stand,” he told CP that Christian colleges are on the path to becoming the next generation Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth and Princeton.
Oh, Ken. No. There’s no risk of that.
The point Ham is trying to make is that Christian colleges are becoming altogether too secular to raise God’s chosen. Just look at this data from a survey of faculty from 200 Christian campuses:
While nearly all respondents expressed their belief in the inspiration of the Scriptures (98.1 percent), less than three quarters of respondents (74 percent) affirmed their belief in the inerrancy, or total accuracy, of the Bible. Nearly 19 percent of respondents rejected the belief that the Scriptures are infallible or incapable of failing.
See? A full quarter of these institutions believe the Bible may not be completely accurate! Nearly a fifth reject the idea of biblical infallibility! Utter madness. Some of these schools may even have fully-functioning Biology departments!
Ham’s big fear is that rejecting the inherently ridiculous and easily disproven claims of young earth creationists will lead the innocent youth to “accommodate other beliefs such as homosexuality and abortion.” That’s right, kids – science is a gateway drug to other radical reality-based thinking. Just say no!
