Ham's "Godless" Evolutionists
Then, Ham states that 'evolutionists' are convinced there is no God. Another lie. Only creationists can convince anyone that there is no God. They preach under a false pretense that anyone refuses to comply to their beliefs is convinced there is no God and is an atheist. That's just plain wrong and entirely unbiblical. Many "evolutionists" are Christians who believe and acknowledge Christ, who died to save us all from our sins, to be our Lord and Savior. Ham stubbornly refuses to acknowledge this. To him, Old earthers, theistic "evolutionists", biological "evolutionists", all those who oppose young earth views, Christian and non-Christians are all “god-haters" because they won't agree and support his views. If that's not a message of hate and bigotry, then I don't know what it is.
How are "evolutionists" godless? How are they convinced there is no God? How do they teach others that there is no God, while young earth creationism does it all so clearly? Young earth creationism does such a perfect job convincing people there is no God, it's ok to sin and commit atrocities thinking who's to stop them from doing it, and that it's better for everyone to become atheists. Only do creationists make a liar out of God and His Word by claiming He did just as what the Bible says, only to find that He really didn't do what the Bible says and thus making God and His Word into an lying untrustworthy resource about how all things came to be so many years ago.
At the very bottom of page 49 there is a Bible verse ripped out of context and twisted to fit Ham's distorted view. It's I Corinthians 15:39 which reads in the NIV, “All flesh is not the same: Men have one kind of flesh, animals have another, birds another and fish another.” It seems the verse alone speaks out against evolution like Ham wants it to. It doesn't. When put back in full text, the verse is actually speaking on the resurrected body brought to life by the Power of God and how it is different than any other body known. Thus, the verse has nothing to do with evolution. Read the entire chapter in First Corinthians 15 carefully in full context and you'll see what I mean.
No Sin To Accept Evolution
On pages 50 and 51, the kids are seen observing a scene in the Garden of Eden of Adam and Eve tasting the forbidden fruit in a mist of dinosaurs and modern animals browsing away which includes a fictional Carnotaurus, with wrongful head and forelimb arrangement, wrongly eating bananas (real Carnotaurus ate only meat) and a fictional Psittacosaurus, without a quilled tail, holding a pear in its hands (No pear ever grew in Psittacosaurus' day in reality). On page 50, Ham stupidly regards evolution a sin (since when?) and claims stupidly that we are so 'lead astray' by the 'evolutionists' teachings such as the concept of millions of years for instance because we are sinners who inherited the sins of what Adam and Eve after what they have done in the Garden of Eden. How stupid Ham's Idiocy can get? The truth is the other way around.
What Ham teaches is NOT True Christianity. This nothing bad, sinful, and god-hating found within its scientific facts and theories. It is the teachings of young earth creation that have lead the people astray and making them into mental, deluded, sick minded people and\or god-haters who engaged in atheism and agnosticism and refuse to have anything to do with God and\or take a much different form of Christian viewing. There is no way can people be lead astray by exposure to scientific facts. The YECs themselves who are the ones responsible for leading the people astray with their stupid lies, giving their gullible followers what they're ears are all itching to hear, YE horse &^%$!
Not A Dinosaur Book, But a Book Promoting Young Earth Propaganda
Proof that this is not a dinosaur book! Pages 52-53 shows exactly the reason why this is not a true dinosaur book, but a full fledge propaganda book to indoctrinate and brainwash children into believing in the huge young earth lie. The following two pages show a scene where the kids are reading their Bible. Right next to them, there are a stack of books, all books written by you know who. The boy points to the bible and tries to tell a caricature of an evolutionist that what the bible say about earth's history is true. But the faux evolutionist caricature holds out his hand and refuses him. Holding in his hands are 3 books by Darwin and on the table is an ape man skull and a book about evolution. Behind him is a large banner that shows the strawman style natural history of planet earth.
This scene clearly confirms the book The Dinosaurs of Eden: A (sic) Biblical Journey Through Time to be not a dinosaur book, but a propaganda book plastered with dinosaurs images from top to bottom to lure children into hating anyone who oppose the young earth lie and believing a false bible story about a world that never was, just like all forms of creationist propaganda literature past and present.
Ham's Hypocritical Accusation
Ham, on page 52, falsely and hypocritically accuses 'evolutionists' of being "willfully ignorant" of the truth, like what II Peter 3:5 tells us. Creationists have long asserted that the verse in II Peter was warning the reader about evolution and the people who advocate it according to the passage. This is false. Peter is not referring to evolution when he wrote that passage. He never knew what evolution is, let alone what is science back then. The verse when put in full context warns the reader against those living in the End Times who refused to believed that Jesus was coming back to earth soon. They acknowledged that the earth was created by God, but thinks everything have stayed entirely the same since then. Peter, on the other hand, objects to this. Peter wrote that in the beginning, the same water that God cause land to rise from was the same water that brought along the Flood to the world, the known world, not the global world mind you, to punished mankind for his sins.
The bible is not only neutral of evolution (meaning "unfolding"), it's entirely irrelevant to it. Although I admit I get real mad when people at church claims that evolution didn't occurred when God created everything, in a way they're right. Evolution has zero to do with origins. Instead, it has only everything to do with after god created everything. Evolution simply means "to unfold and change." When God made the Heavens and the Earth, He made all things possible for all things to change over time. Just because an animal, plant, or human is fully formed to perfection doesn't mean they can't change and modify over a period of time. All around us we see evidence of evolution at work in the past as well as in the present. The nylon bug is the best example of evolution being witnessed at work.
Ham, willfully ignorant himself, just like all young earthers, states that the scientists who accepts evolution are all sinners and those who accepts his false “Literal Genesis” story are all true Christians. Sorry, Ham. This is not True Christianity. Christianity does not work that way and is not what the Bible teaches. This is just Ham and other creationists' way of shoehorning irrelevant subjects into the bible that speaks nothing about them and keeping followers in line, behaving very much like the self-righteous Pharisees in Jesus' time, gaining fame, fortune, money, and power, gaining the whole world, only to be forced to forfeit their souls in the end (Mark 8:36). And this demagogue, on page 53, claims God is going to destroy the world with fire as told in II Peter 3:7 (That's irrelevant to evolution, dinosaurs, science, and the past, too.) which He thinks is the final Judgment of God. But this is not what Revelation 20:11 - 15 says when it comes to what the Final Judgment will be like. Instead the Final Judgment will be like what is told here.
Ham's Claim About The Restoration Of Eden
Now, Ham, on page 54, claims a New Heaven and a New Earth will appear on earth that will be exactly like the Garden of Eden before sin came into the world. But Rich Deem does have a saying about this. So will I. The only difference between the Garden of Eden and the New Heaven and Earth is there will be no tree of knowledge and snake to tempt them to eat the fruit of it. No one will be tempted to do wrong like the snake has done. No one will tell them that they will die if they do something out of line like eat a certain fruit, in fact there will be no death occurring in God's Kingdom, period. No day and night occurring in God's Kingdom, and a huge big city of gold and jewels and a crystal clear sea running through it on a big tall mountain with bright lights shining from God all occurring in the New Heaven and Earth. The Garden of Eden has a day and night. This, the Future Kingdom, is completely unlike the Garden of Eden where it has the tree of knowledge, tempting snake, day and night, vulnerability to temptation, and threats of death. If the wolf and the lion will eat straw like cattle as for told in Isaiah 11, then God should have those 2 animals evolve all attributes and features of what it takes to be a plant-eater. Chewing molars, huge guts, fermenting bacteria, and a complex digestive system instead of wasting His creative resources on the animals by giving them wrongful attributes to use. Otherwise, the passage is a metaphor of Israel living in peace, eating alongside, making friends with her neighbors who were once her enemies at one time. The lion and other big cats, the wolf, the bear, and the snake represent the enemy nations of Israel. When the New Kingdom is established, even Israels' worst enemies will become her closest friends.
Now, Ham begins to indoctrinate children on page 56 and continues all the way to the end of the book to believe in Jesus, his own way. All the other YECs do the same thing with their materials and preached their own version of the salvation message while refraining from telling the people that their teachings are all 100% flawed. As a matter of fact, it seems they are not at all interested in preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ at all, but instead be interested in preaching nothing but young earth dogma. They just throw the gospel message in there to win followers into their group. Page 56 depicts the 2 teens observing, on the New Testament monitor, symbolic images made up of the Bible, a gold stairway to Heaven, and a rainbow arch. Page 57 simply shows lost souls falling and suffering in Hell. These 2 pages commits the worst act of blasphemy and sacrilege when they preached the gospel only to render the Gospel into a huge lie when they create an unwanted false dilemma that makes people unnecessary choose evolution over God. This kind of abuse in my opinion is what really drives Christians away from church, cause people to lose their faith in God, and become atheists.
Using the Gospel message to indoctrinate people into dangerous and destructive dogma, which young earth creationism all a part of, that is filled with nothing but empty, unfounded claims and malice, destructive heresies, hate, fear, hostility, emotionalism, unfounded assertions, mudslinging, bigotry, bickering, money extortions, hypocrisy, falsehoods, racial slander, more slander, stupid lies, ignorance, fallacies, self-righteousness, empty threats of Hell, human reasoning, and man made teachings in disguise of God teachings, is completely nothing but total sacrilege and blasphemy indeed.
Learning Nothing From A Dinosaur Bone
Pages 58 and 59: The kids observe a dinosaur skull while daydreaming of the times they spent in the Garden of Eden with Adam, Eve, modern animals, and the mythical dinosaurs. In the text on page 58, Ham want the reader to imagine that he/she has a dinosaur bone. Then he ask, “What can you learn from this piece of dead bone?” Answer, nothing! Nothing can be learned from a dinosaur bone when it comes to morality, Christianity, and the Bible. Ham tries anyway and dredges up lessons he thinks we can learn from a dinosaur bone, while in reality what those lessons will do is give people crap about the 6,000 year old lie, the global flood myth, the dinosaurs lived with man lie and others and lead then all into being brainwashed into engaging in bible distortions, blind faith, ignorance, and denial.
A Worst Comparison
Despite what Ham says on page 60-61, using Noah's ark as a pictured comparison to Jesus Christ will do us no good concerning about the conditions of the ark when it comes to worries over diseases, adequate maintenance, ventilation, food, exercise, pro
per places to dispose of animal feces, etc. When you enter into the ark or any wooden ship that has no adequate fixes or a proper physicality or maintenance, you may wound up being susceptible to diseases, malnutrition and other pitfalls of being inside a wooden ship. Just ask the African Americans whose ancestors were forced be crowded into wooden ships that are setting sail on a direct coarse to slavery in America.
Page 62 still has Ham engaging in blasphemous preaching while entirely setting the Christian faith up for the Fall and Page 63 only shows a menagerie of dinosaurs, a Dimorphodon pterosaur, a Tanystropheus, and an early Cenozoic mammal.
Using the Gospel to Swindle People
Now we get to the very last page of the book, which is page 64, where it shows the kids observing a Maiasaura feeding her young. Also on the page, there is also a written prayer to invite Jesus into the reader's life and 3 out-of-context Bible verses, two located in the text (Psalms 119:9, II Timothy 2:15) and one, a so-called memory verse (Psalm 119:160), is located at the bottom. All are taken from the King James Bible, which Ham thinks will challenge the reader to rely on blind faith in the young earth stupidity and falsehood rather than the truth.
Those 3 verses, when put in full context and interpret right, actually tells of people to love, cherished, and uphold the Law of Moses, including the Ten Commandments and Paul reminding Timothy to stick to the gospel of Jesus Christ and avoid godless chat and pathetic stupid arguments that only produce quarrels. Case in point; Young Earth Creationism, one of the many religious dogmas out there that has been known to be exactly what Paul is warning Timothy to keep away from when it comes to "godless chat" and "foolish and stupid arguments that only produce quarrels" as Paul puts it.
Then Ham encourages the reader to read 'the [sic] history book of the universe' (in large capitol letters) and give him money so that Ham and his cronies can boast about another sucker converted into their fold to add more cash to their pocketbooks and to shovel more crap to converts' mouth, head, and heart for more and more money. What did Jesus says about not serving God and Money (Mathew 6:24, Luke 16:13)?
And finally, we don't need to wait for the new heaven and a new earth to see the dinosaurs because we're already seeing them now, as birds.
Well, that's it! We've just come to the end of our mythic time traveling adventure through the fantasy world of the dinosaurs as told in the [sic] Dinosaurs of Eden book and have not learned a doggone thing from it. Indeed it sure is a very nice story to read about dinosaurs roaming happily in the Garden of Eden (only to be killed in the Flood and its aftermath). But, you don't want to believe it. If you really want to be drawn into a really great dinosaur time traveling adventure involving 2 kids, then check out Book 1 of The Magic Tree House series called Dinosaurs before Dark right here where 2 kids travel to the time of the dinosaurs in a large magic tree house that's full of books. A far much better alternative to Ham's delusional kiddie crap no doubt. If you really want to visit a real edenic world where dinosaurs roam happily alongside of humans, then James Gurney's Dinotopia series is highly recommended! Dinotopia, A Land Apart From Time (and its various sequels) is a fantastic sci-fi world where there is really a Dinosaur Eden on the island continent where dinosaurs and humans live together as equals; in peaceful harmony with each other. 100% guaranteed that there will be no flood, no slander, no bad diets, no stupid lies and no bad indoctrinations of any kind to be found on that island paradise. So journey all the way to this wonderful sci-fi fantasy world and remember, Breathe Deep, Seek Peace!
