I have often found that since the evidence is not on their side, some skeptics resort to using fear tactics to attack Christianity.

Yes, he actually said it: creationism “may pose the greatest threat to the future of our children, your health, and the nation’s economy.”

This remarkable quote came from Arthur Caplan, who was chairman of the medical ethics department at the University of Pennsylvania and frequent TV commentator, when he once wrote in a major newspaper, The Philadelphia Inquirer. What prompted this venomous attack? Vice-presidential candidate at the time, Sarah Palin, apparently believed in creation and was on record as having said that students should be allowed to “debate both sides” of the evolution question. She also added that creationism “doesn’t have to be part of the curriculum.”

In Caplan’s eyes, this simple desire to allow children to discuss both sides of the issue meant “a vote for Sarah Palin, or any creationist, is a vote for change, all right, a change back to the lifestyles of the 19th century.” Attacks like these demonstrate better than anything I could ever say why the biblical apologetics ministry of Answers in Genesis is so crucial. We must be out on the front lines to combat the mixture of hysterics, misrepresentation, and scare tactics presented by secularists everywhere.
