No Child Left Behind®

Kudos to evangelist Ken Ham, who instructs children “to reject much of geology, paleontology and evolutionary biology as a sinister tangle of lies.” Here’s an example of Ham’s good works:

“Emily Maynard, 12, was also delighted with Ham's presentation. Home-schooled and voraciously curious, she had recently read an encyclopedia for fun — and caught herself almost believing the entry on evolution. ‘They were explaining about apes standing up, evolving to man, and I could kind of see that's how it could happen,’ she said.

Ham convinced her otherwise. As her mother beamed, Emily repeated Ham's mantra: ‘The Bible is the history book of the universe.’”

You go, Brother Ham! I mean, ultimately, who cares if little Emily is left behind academically today, or in the marketplace tomorrow, as long as she isn’t Left Behind® when it really counts—during the Rapture?

Now, who’s up for a good old-fashioned book burning? I call dibs on the encyclopedia!
