Statement of Ignorance

This is from the Statement of Faith of Answers in Genesis.  Take special note of statement f. 

The following are held by members of the Board of Answers in Genesis to be either consistent with Scripture or implied by Scripture.

  1. Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation, spanning approximately 4,000 years from creation to Christ.
  2. The days in Genesis do not correspond to geologic ages, but are six [6] consecutive twenty-four [24] hour days of creation.
  3. The Noachian Flood was a significant geological event and much (but not all) fossiliferous sediment originated at that time.
  4. The gap theory has no basis in Scripture.
  5. The view, commonly used to evade the implications or the authority of biblical teaching, that knowledge and/or truth may be divided into secular and religious, is rejected.
  6. By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the scriptural record. Of primary importance is the fact that evidence is always subject to interpretation by fallible people who do not possess all information.

Get that.  Anything that would appear to contradict the Bible cannot be considered to be true.  With one swipe of their pen they declare almost all of biology, geology, physics, astronomy, chemistry, anthropology and a great deal of history to be false.  This is why people like Richard Dawkins refuse to debate these people.  Like a little child they stick their fingers in their ears and refuse to listen to anything science has to say.
