We are always being told by people like Ken Ham that: (1) only their version of religion can teach us morality; and (2) godless science is the path to depravity and the Lake of Fire.
So we’re curious to know what ol’ Hambo might say about something we found in Noosa News of Noosaville in Queensland, Australia: Poll: No young Icelanders believe God created the universe. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
NO Icelanders under the age of 25 believe the creation story that God was responsible for creating the universe, a new poll claims. The poll, commissioned by the Icelandic Ethical Humanist Association, claims that 93.9 per cent in the under 25 category responded that the universe was created by the Big Bang. Just over 6 per cent responded with ‘don’t know’ or ‘other’. None of the respondents, however, believed that the universe had been created by God.
It’s a good thing Hambo decided not to locate his creationist empire in Iceland. One more excerpt:
The Iceland Magazine, which reported the findings, added that the poll showed younger people and inhabitants of Reykjavík were the least religious. It added: “80.6 per cent of those older than 55 identified as Christian and only 11.8 per cent said they were atheists. At the same time 40.5 per cent of people who were 25 years or younger said they were atheists, and only 42 per cent said they were Christian.
That’s all the news. The rest of the article is about comments that some readers posted, so this is where we’ll quit. But if you’re planning to take a trip to Iceland, perhaps you should reconsider. If folks like Hambo are right, that country must be hell on Earth.
