'Friendly' Creationist Billboards Mock Atheists

| by Michael Allen

Ken Ham's creationist organization Answers in Genesis has placed what he calls "friendly" and "cordial" billboards in San Francisco and New York City.

The billboards read, “To all of our atheist friends: Thank God you’re wrong.”

The billboard includes the group's web address, AnswersinGenesis.org, which hosts a press release about the billboards:

Answers in Genesis (AiG), sponsor of the billboards, is engaging atheists and other secularists with a cordial message that encourages them to visit AiG’s website to read articles and watch a video that present the case for God’s existence.

...In a friendly way, we want to reach out to people in secularized parts of the country and share the hope we have in Christ. Atheists live in a world of ultimate meaninglessness and purposelessness. But the good news is that God sent His Son to offer the free gift of salvation. There is purpose and meaning in life. And we thank God for that.

Ham also states that 6-7 billboards are planned for the Los Angeles area.

Besides atheists, Ham has also opposed Christians who believe the earth is billions of years old, instead of thousands of years.

Back in March, he spoke out against Pastor Robert Jeffress who suggested the earth could be 13 billion years old, notes The Christian Post

Ham also accused Pat Robertson of "destructive teaching" when he disagreed that the world was thousands of years old.
