Young Earth Creationist Ken Ham slammed the response he received from one atheist who took him on his challenge to explain how atheism is positive for children.
“This atheist’s ‘positive’ message for kids is nothing but a tirade against Christianity (which is the best he can do). He mocks those who believe in Adam and Eve, the fall, sin, and Jesus. Then, he borrows from a Christian worldview to make moral claims,” Ham, CEO and president of Answers in Genesis, said on Facebook Wednesday.
Ham’s comments were a response to Luciano Gonzalez of the Sin God Patheos blog, who on Saturday responded to an earlier Ham tweet that challenged atheists to explain what positive message they have for children.
“A world without deities has a significant impact on our role in the world and in the universe,” Gonzalez wrote as part of his answer.
“It means that every single person isn’t cursed to walk along a predetermined path where they at most make minor but already accounted for choices that do not alter the future but to decide their own fate and to make choices that will ultimately alter humanity’s future in ways they might not understand or ever even see themselves,” he added.
“It means that it isn’t wrong for boys to like boys or for girls to like girls, or for children to like both or neither.”
He went on to argue that it is positive to believe that there is no plan by God that allows for children to suffer, and to believe that the world doesn’t elevate humanity.
