From Hank Hanegraaff’s book “Fatal Flaws”:
Creationists and Christians should be greatful of the candor of doctrinaire evolutionist Colin Patterson when he admitted:
For over twenty years I thought I was working on evolution … [But] there was not one thing I knew about it … So for the last few weeks I’ve tried putting a simple question to various people and groups of people. Question is: “Can you tell me anything you know about evolution, any one thing, any one thing that is true?” I’ve tried that question on the geology staff at the Field Museum of Natural History and the only answer I got was silence. I tried it on the members of the Evolutionary Morphology Seminar in the University of Chicago, a very prestigious body of evolutionists and all I got was silence for a long time and eventually one person said, “Yes, I do know on thing — it ought not to be taught in high school.” … During the past ten years … you have experienced a shift from evolution as knowledge to evolution as faith … Evolution not only conveys no knowledge, but seems somehow to convey anti-knowledge.
