AIG’s Latest Series Aimed at Refuting the YEE Teaching Taking Hold Amongst Creationists

In Ken Ham’s article, “Pausing for a Leaven Warning,” on the Answers in Genesis (AIG) website (, he makes the significant point that “even a small error can unlock a door leading to a major issue” in reference to laying out the efforts of the AIG staff of producing the series of articles about the “Young Earth Evolution” (YEE) movement taking hold among some creationists. They have dedicated numerous staff members to this series because of their extremely sincere burden at Answers in Genesis in upholding the absolute authority of the Word of God. “These articles are written to warn others that once a door to undermine that authority is cracked open, it can lead to an eventual domino effect. In other words, a small error can result in a major issue over time … [those at AIG] have found what they call ‘young-earth evolution’ ideas—where creationists have accepted some false evolutionary assumptions that have led to what we believe is error in a number of areas they believe and teach. So this current series of articles on ‘young-earth evolution’ has an overarching theme of responding to instances in which we believe some creationist researchers have, for unknown reasons, accepted various secular evolutionary assumptions unnecessarily. We believe this is opening a door to undermine biblical authority and could lead to others accepting more evolutionary assumptions and eventually giving up biblical authority. Now, if our assertion is correct, then this is a very serious issue, and so we need to take this very seriously indeed.” He then outlines the errors of most concern.

In its defense of the sanctity of the Word of God, AIG has met with a large amount of negative responses and attacks impugning the ministry, much of which involve emotional dogmatisms not upheld by the Scriptures, such as the shape of Noah’s ark (the Bible does not say it was box shaped or that Giraffes stuck their long necks out of the windows at the top to look at the rainbow!). This article reveals Ken’s heart for defending the Word of God in Genesis and the Pentateuch against heresies and the erosion of God’s truth by the various streams of corruption prevailing in our culture today. We need to heed God’s Watchmen like we have in the ministry of AIG. This article is highly recommend to readers with a sincere desire to preserve and promote the Truth in the Bible.

Raised a Catholic but became born again in young adulthood principally through reading Evidence that Demands a Verdict by Josh McDowell (I highly recommend it). I prefer the Reformed faith and subscribe to the Five Solas, but hold to baptism by immersion. I also hold to a continuationist view of the doctrine of Spiritual gifts. To me, the Bible is the inerrant Word of God, with a Christocentric theme in its entirety. I hold to an orthodox preterist hermeneutic and prefer the Postmillenial eschatology as the most biblical doctrine of God’s plan for His kingdom in Christ.
