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 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...]
