COUNTING On fans slammed Jessa Duggar’s husband Ben Seewald for teaching his kids that “God made the beach” instead of about science.
Ben, 25, and Jessa, 28, share three kids – Spurgeon, five, Henry, four, and Ivy, one – and they had a little Bible lesson during a recent beach trip.
Ben Seewald was slammed for not teaching his kids science
The two boys wanted to watch TV, but their mom said that was only when it was dark out, so Ben decided they should learn a little about the beach from the Bible
He asked the young kids: “God made the beach, did you know that?”
The boys shook their heads and said they didn’t or they didn’t remember, and then their dad went on to tell them that God controls the water and tells it where to stop, which is why it doesn’t come over all the sand.

Fans were upset Jessa Duggar and Ben’s kids were being ‘brainwashed’
Fans on the Without a Crystal Ball Instagram page slammed the teachings, with the account first writing, alongside a clip from the YouTube video: “This is what happens when you take the Bible so literally.
“Science tells us that tides are a result of the gravitational pull from the sun & the moon…Ben & Jessa are the examples of what happens when science is rebuked & not taught to children.
“Now they are passing it on to their kids.”
Counting On fans agreed and slammed the Duggar duo for the “super cringe” lesson.

“OMFG,” one simply wrote, while another said: “Perpetuating stupidity. He’s so gross.”
Others said it was “the most awkward interaction with children” they have ever seen, saying it was “Cringeworthy.”
Many blasted them for only teaching the Bible and said “that science should be taught as well and kids should not be brainwashed liked this.”
When Jessa shared a photo gallery from the oceanside escape her family went on, she didn’t include talk about the Bible lessons in her caption.

Her husband Ben was slammed last month for his comments about the Capitol Hill riots
Fans slammed him and told him to ‘sit down’
He said: “With the unrest in America these days, the easy thing to do right now is to go on social media, point fingers and self-justify.
“The hard thing to do is to examine OURSELVES. To pray. To weep. To intercede before God for this nation and the people in it.”
“Preaching this to myself too. God help me. God help us,” Jessa’s husband said.
