Many people don’t want the Bible to be True. There are 2 types of willful ignorance:
“Both varieties of wilful ignorance flow from not wanting there to be a Creator to whom we are accountable. Some people know where the light-switch is, but won’t flick it, remaining in the dark. Others have turned the light on, and quickly turned it off, not liking what they saw and not wanting others to see it either…
…Some of the wilfully ignorant flatly reject the information disseminated by biblical creationists.
There is nothing wrong with rejecting something fallacious. Indeed, Christians are exhorted to “test everything; hold fast what is good” (1 Thessalonians 5:21). It’s a sound principle for everyone. But if an evolutionary hypothesis is genuinely refuted, it should be discarded. Often, however, a rescue device is substituted instead—an evolutionary just-so story. But it will not withstand scrutiny because stories are not science…
…The coffin of evolution has many nails, frequently hammered in by its own supporters.4 To Band-Aid their pet ideas, evolutionists continue to spin elaborate fabrications that supposedly explain everything, but end up explaining nothing very well (see Having your cake, and eating it). To them, the alternative is unthinkable. Napoleon is said to have remarked: “Man will believe anything, as long as it’s not in the Bible.” The inspired words of the Apostle Paul (Romans 1:25) accurately diagnose the human heart:
… they exchanged the truth about God for a lie and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever! Amen.”
