I just received an email from a visitor to our website. She says:

“Your website states:

‘A high percentage of youth from evangelical homes and churches reject their faith or are seriously weakened because of evolutionary indoctrination and other anti-God philosophies taught throughout our society.’

You have it wrong—these youth leave because they join an intellectually challenging world and realize your cult has brainwashed them.”

I have to shake my head when I hear this kind of comment. I wonder if the youth have joined an intellectually challenging world or one that is intellectually challenged. Is it intellectual to believe everything in the universe came for absolutely nothing or that the first cell happened by accident against overwhelming odds (1 chance in 1 followed by 40,000 zeros), or that the human eye and brain just popped into existence?

We may try to be “intellectual” by concocting non-God schemes, but to me, it just doesn’t satisfy true intellectualism or even credulity. So who is brainwashed?
