Air Date: February 10, 2012
Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Ken Ham
Ken Ham is the Founder, President and CEO of Answers in Genesis and the highly acclaimed Creation Museum which has seen over a million visitors. He’s a biblical apologist and author of numerous books including: “Already Gone”, “Already Compromised”, “The Lie: Evolution” and numerous other works.
February 12, 1809, is the birthday of Charles Darwin, the man typically credited with popularizing evolutionary theory. In our day, February is the month when many churches throughout America celebrate what’s known as “Evolution Sunday”, an effort that’s been going on since 2006.
Some of the denominations that support “Evolution Sunday” include the United Church of Christ, Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), Presbyterian Church-USA and American Baptists.
On this Crosstalk you’ll learn about atheist Michael Zimmerman who started this effort through the Clergy Letter Project in Wisconsin. After Jim reads this letter, Ken explains why, when using the term “science”, a distinction must be made between observational science used to prove things in the present and the unobservable theory of evolution which proponents claim occurred in the distant past.
