A recent article at Answers in Genesis points out that there is an interesting trend occurring at the Creation Museum. It seems that some of the visitors to the museum are not coming because they are excited to see what’s going on. Instead there are many committed atheists coming to understand the “enemy”. Even more interesting than that is the fact that some of these atheists understand that the battlefield is for the hearts and minds of the coming generation, the children.
Here’s a revealing quote:
Christians must understand the nature of the change that has occurred in our culture. No longer do the secularists just mock Christians from afar. They are now actively campaigning to indoctrinate children in an anti-God philosophy—to teach them to be secularists and atheists. These secularists are no longer passive. They accuse Christians who are training their children in biblical truths of being “child abusers.” (They’ve even likened Christianity to a deadly virus.)
Of the 900,000 people who have visited the museum in the last 2 ½ years, many have been secularists/atheists. They frequently express their dismay that the many children they see here are being influenced by biblical teaching.
One secular humanist professor said he was worried about the Creation Museum because “children may come away confused. And that means we’ll have a harder job convincing them.”
You see, this professor wants to take your children and indoctrinate them against God—and he is furious that the Creation Museum has made his teaching job harder!
