In Ken Ham‘s world, where up is down and right is left and evolution is a fairy tale, science advocates using #DarwinWasWrongDay — in mockery of his attempt to detract from Charles Darwin‘s birthday today — is just a sign that Creationism is winning:
We have already received many positive responses with people sharing the news with others, and as we suspected, we also got a lot of response from secularists. Shortly after we announced Darwin Was Wrong Day, the Internet exploded with responses both positive and negative alike. The secularists particularly took to Twitter — we obviously hit a nerve. But why are they fighting so hard against a God that they don’t even believe exists? Well, because they really do know that God exists, but they are suppressing that truth in unrighteousness (Romans 1:18–19).
We are thankful for the publicity! Even if they are mocking us, they are helping to spread the message that there are people who are speaking against this religion of naturalism and proclaim the truth of God’s Word. God can certainly take what they intended for harm and use it for good — to help others to realize the truth of God’s Word from the very beginning.
I’m straining to find a positive response to Darwin Was Wrong Day, but I think I’d have an easier time finding one of Judge Roy Moore‘s gay friends.
Make no mistake: The reason #DarwinWasWrongDay is such a hit is because it’s so easy to come up with other examples of people denying the obvious. It’s tailor-made for Twitter. Whatever Ham hoped to do with the hashtag, I promise you it backfired.
It’s not surprising, though. We’re talking about the same guy who thinks government neutrality amounts to religious persecution.
