Ken Ham is cheating Kentucky out of millions tax dollars

I have been investigating the fraudulent activities of Ken Ham and his Answers in Genesis organization and his newest venture The Ark Encounter in which Ham is using millions of dollars in tax rebates to build a theme park based on the genocidal flood story in Genesis.Ham has continued to deny any wrong doings and claims the project is not taking taxpayer money for this project, ignoring that by avoiding paying taxes, he is in fact taking money.Well Ed Hensley, an amazing activist has … [Read more...]

Ken Ham climbs into bed with white supremacist group

Is Ken Ham in bed with white supremacists?According to a blog posted on Americans United’s blog, he seems to be: We don’t know how Ken Ham feels about white supremacists, but he clearly has no problem partnering with one. If the company you keep says a lot about you, what does Ham’s relationship with Michael Peroutka say about him? Michael Peroutka is the founder of the Institute of the Constitution, a Christian nationalist group that supports white supremacists, and Peroutka is a current m … [Read more...]

Ken Ham thinks he thinks he has found 10 evolutionary myths and he is wrong


Answers in Genesis are an endless provider of material for this blog it seems, as they have recently posted their Top Ten: Myths about Evolution, and as you can imagine it is a beautiful fabrication of straw men and make believe.They lack even the most fundamental understanding of not only science and the scientific method, but for people whom claim to study this stuff everyday, they have less than a middle school understanding of evolution.The danger this causes is that they sell others … [Read more...]

Americans United sends Kentucky governor a letter condemning Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter discrimination


In a story that broke right here on Danthropology, the discovery that Ken Ham's Ark Encounter was hiring for positions to work for the for-profit theme park was being done by the non-profit Answers in Genesis in an act to hold employees to a religious test.The Ark Encounter has applied for an $18 million tax incentive for the project, but is in clear violation of the law, disqualifying them from such an incentive.Federal and state laws prohibit for-profit business from discriminating … [Read more...]

Ken Ham’s 10 facts that prove creationism – Debunked

Ken Ham

As an ongoing theme for this site, I will be addressing claims against evolution, this is one of the reasons I call the blog Danthropology, not only is it the greatest pun you have ever heard, but I am an anthropology major, more importantly, evolutionary anthropology.So I take great interest when creationists like those at Answers in Genesis present their “facts” for creationism, and like the gift horse they are, they keep on giving.Earlier this week they told us about the common myths a … [Read more...]

Ken Ham’s warning to Christian leaders: God hates compromise!

Ken Ham has issued a warning to all Christian leaders who do not teach the Bible as the literal truth. Yes—God hates compromise! Contamination destroys. This is Ham’s response to me saying that my parents never lied to me about the Ark and taught me the Bible as metaphor instead of literal truths, mainly because my parents are not idiots and understand how ridiculous most of the biblical stories are.I keep asking Ham to address the ongoing employee discrimination happening at the Ark Enc … [Read more...]

The dishonesty continues from Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis


As discussed in a previous post, Ken Ham has denied that the Ark Encounter is hiring any employees, yet lists a job on the Answers in Genesis (AiG) website for an Ark Encounter Position. I mentioned this to him on Twitter, but of course he simply denied. @danarel This is an Answers in Genesis position not Ark Encounter— Ken Ham (@aigkenham) August 11, 2014What it appears is happening here is that AiG is hiring employees for their non-profit and having them work on … [Read more...]

Ken Ham took his dishonest rhetoric to the radio and I called in


So earlier today I caught wind that Ken Ham would be appearing on a radio program called CrossTalk to discuss the “attacks” on this new project The Ark Encounter.Now Ham and myself have had some good back and forth already, see here and here for some history, but this is the first time I was able to speak to him “in person”.I was dumped onto the air a bit at random so I scrambled to get my thoughts together and asked Ham to defend some of the comments he has made, like telling everyone th … [Read more...]

The dishonesty continues as Ken Ham responds, but only to cry persecution


Ken Ham keeps insisting that I am anti-Christian because I don’t believe in his ludicrous myth that a genocidal flood killed everyone on the planet except Noah’s select few and a handful of animals.Sorry Ken, but even my Christian parents told me that was a fairy tale when I was growing up. But of course, you will pull a no-true-Scotsman fallacy and claim they cannot be Christian if they deny your interpretation scripture, but I digress.You almost got it right on Facebook: "No, his hat … [Read more...]

A response to Ken Ham’s erroneous accusations


In a recent series of tweets, I called out Ken Ham's Ark Encounter for the proposed $18 million in tax incentives the project applied for in an effort to help fund breaking ground on the long delayed project.The Ark Encounter is an amusement styled park owned by Answers in Genesis, the same organization who runs The Creation Museum, and the park is based around the biblical myth of Noah's Flood.Ham plans to recreate the ark for tourists to walk through and learn how a 600-year old man … [Read more...]
