Time to Say It: Creationists Aren’t Christians - They’re a Cult
I think by now most who follow my writing know that I am not a fan of creationists. In fact, the more I speak with several of them, the more I think these people are suffering from severe mental illness. They’ll literally say that all scientific data is “just a theory” and that none of it is provable, yet they’ll cling to the “truths” inside of the Bible because they view the Bible as some kind of factual history book.
When I attack creationists, they think I’m attacking Christianity - which isn’t true at all. As most people who follow me know, I’m a Christian. I’ve probably written nearly 100 articles defending my faith.
Because I believe Christianity goes far beyond the Bible. In fact, while I won’t deny that I do believe the Bible does have some basis for facts hidden within its text, I see it more as a guide book for those who might need direction. I don’t see the Bible as a word for word factual depiction of history. That’s ludicrous.
And while these people might call themselves Christians, and they’re more than free to do just that, I can’t view these people as Christians. I see them as people suffering from some form of mental condition. And while that might sound harsh, it’s just the way that I feel.
To really believe that dinosaurs and man walked the Earth together; that a man named Noah built an ark that housed every animal on Earth and lived to be 900 years old; that the science behind the speed of light isn’t valid; that the Earth is only 6,000 years old; and the Earth was made in 6, 24 hour days is insane.
