"What Do You Think of 'Answers in Genesis'?"

Great article on Sociobiology. I am just now getting into this stuff on a layman's level. Always hated this stuff when I was a kid. But now as a minister, I realize how important it is to the foundation of our Christian beliefs. What do you think of Ken Ham, and the Answers in Genesis stuff? I have found it a great help. Also...the more I study on both sides of the aisle about evolution, the more I am convinced that the Genesis Story has been told as history and is accurate. What do you think? Thanks for listening!  

Thank you for the kind comment concerning my article. This way of thinking also takes on the titles of evolutionary psychology, evolutionary sociology and evolutionary medicine. Seems sociobiology got a bad name in the late 70s and early 80s, being characterized as a renewal of social Darwinism and for being anti-feminist. The ideology is the same, just a different name.

I had met Ken Ham and had him in my home before he ever came to the U.S. to work with ICR. He had a few rough edges back then (criticized Americans and my wife in particular for even offering "iced" tea [the National Drink of Texas! ;-) ]. Unfortunately, he wasn't kidding). I presume he has softened his criticisms with maturity and having lived in the States for several years now. Ken and AIG are fulfilling a vital role in the effort to supplant Darwinism in American education. However, since Probe does not take a definitive stand on the age of the earth (see our article "Christian Views of Science and Earth History," http://www.probe.org/docs/viewscie.html for our explanation), we are not likely to make the short list of recommended apologetics ministries. However, I receive their material, have kept up with their activities, and look forward to the completion of their museum.

Thanks again for your encouragement.
