America once stood on the foundation of God's Word. But that foundation is crumbling -- even in the church -- and being replaced by man's word, observed one Christian apologist.
"Whatever we (Americans) once were, we are no longer. We have changed," said Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, in his second State of the Nation address on February 16, 2010, according to the Christian Post website.
Part of the problem stems from what students are learning in science class, Ham believes. Students are being told that science can only explain things and events using natural causes, and the supernatural explanations of natural events are outside the bounds of science.
Ham quoted an article titled "Fading Faith" that appears in the latest edition of "Free Inquiry" -- a magazine of secular humanism -- that states, "A historic transition is occurring, barely noticed. Slowly, quietly, imperceptibly, religion is shriveling in America, as it already has in Europe, Canada, Australia, Japan -- across the developed world. Increasingly, supernatural faith belongs to the third world. The first world is entering the long-predicted Secular Age, when science and knowledge dominate."
