Q. What do YECs and Richard Dawkins have in common?
A. They both equate acceptance of evolution theory with atheism.
I have seen it a few times now, from good Christians whose hearts are in the right place.
Here’s the most recent. Virtually every time this guy says “evolution”, he actually means “atheism”. (His dad joke game is great though ) https://youtu.be/shyI-aQaXD0
Where does this come from?
Is it possible that somehow they have been persuaded by their sworn enemy?
Could it be that the central figure behind the rise of Young Earth Creationism is Richard Dawkins?
Why do they do this? Was it not already understood in Biblical times, that the general adherence of Creation to patterns and laws of nature, in no way deletes God’s continual agency? Colossians 1:17.
