Archie: The Jurassic Pigeon

HU-HEY THERE KIDS! I'M ARCHIE, THE JURASSIC PIGEON! I'm just one of many attractions at Answers In Genesis' brand-spankin' new Creation museum.

You should come visit me, and I'll introduce you too my friend Carl, the coconut-eating T-Rex, and we can all go have some fun surfing on plate-tectonics.

But there are some people out there that don't want you to come over and have fun at my place, people that says our museum in anti-science. Well that's not true, folks. Just look at this banner link from the AIG website:

Of course it's not "anti-science". Just look at all those test-tubes I filled today. You can't have that many test-tubes and be "anti-science". If anything, the museum is "pro-science", with each additional test-tube of my urine making it more scientific. And not only are there test-tubes, but they are being examined by an attractive female scientist that hasn't bothered to tie back her hair before entering the lab as to avoid cross-contaminating the samples, so you know the Creation museum is just as scientific as an episode of C.S.I or House.

And I'm not just godless atheist evolutionistic scientists that hate God's museum. No, apparently there are some Christians that don't like it too. Christians like Pastor Bob Cornwall. Sadly, these Christians that believe in evolution are called "half-born" Christians. Just listen to what John Whitcomb, co-author of The Genesis Flood and professional elderly opinionated person, has to say:

What do you think becomes of these ‘half-born Christians’ you mentioned?

They become very susceptible to all the spiritual diseases that Satan and our own sin nature make available to us wherever we live, move and breathe. We find distortions, denials, and rejections of every basic moral standard the Bible establishes for us as His creatures and His people. We therefore need the whole armour of God, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God—a two-edged sword, not half a sword, or a broken or rusted one, but one fully designed by the Holy Spirit to deal with the enemy (Eph. 6:12–18). Without it, we become dangerously vulnerable. The enemy is not some little force that can be easily crushed by our finite human resources. It’s Satan, the god of this world (2 Cor. 4:4), and he will attack us at the weakest places in our armour. And if we’re not really solid on the whole Bible, we won’t be able to stand.

Now I don’t believe that a true, born-again Christian can lose his salvation, but he can lose his effectiveness, and at the judgment seat of Christ before which all Christians must appear, we are warned repeatedly that we could be ashamed before Him at His coming (1 John 2:28), and suffer great loss—not our soul, but our reward—at the time when Christ appears (1 Cor. 3:10–15).

Whitcomb is right. The Bible is a collection of divinely-inspired middle-eastern literature that encompasses a wide variety of different genres and is therefore meant to be taken as all literally. And Christians that don't believe in the entire literal Word of God (except for certain parts that are supposed to to be taken figuratively, like Romans 13:5-7) are more prone to falling into sin than those who place their trust in man's incredibly fallible, well-researched, and peer-reviewed empirical knowledge.

And what's even more sad is that those kind of Christians lose their effectiveness in being "salt and light" in the world around them. I mean, sure there are guys like Dr. Francis S. Collins, Head of the Human Genome Project, whose work will help bring upon many medical advancements that could help save millions of lives, but that's not really helping the Kingdom of God. No, it is when creation-scientists like Ken Ham build rock-solid super-logical scientific arguments that teaching Evolution in public schools leads to mass-murder that Christ is glorified.

So be sure to keep on your guard, kids, against the deceptive tactics of the Enemy. Especially his most insidious tool of deception: Hard, physical evidence.

Half blood? What is that? what's the problem in believing in evolution? Just because am a Christian I have to believe that men were created exactly in the way Genesis says? Come on that can't be right.
