Introduction

Topic Overview

Creationism is the belief that life, the universe and everything, began when God said ‘go!’. He apparently did this mere thousands of years ago and we have record of this in the first book of the Old Testament. ‘What kind of chump would believe something simply because a book says it is so?’ Well according to high profile ‘creationists’ such as Ken Ham and many others, there is actually a huge body of scientific evidence that confirms the truth of the book of Genesis. If you dig deep into the ground you will find ‘billions of dead things buried in rock layers laid down by water all over the earth’. You would have to have a lot of faith in the Gods of secularism, immorality and cannibalism to believe such a fact isn’t solid proof of Noah’s Flood. And a talking snake.
