Please Take Genesis 1 Literally

I am really tired of those pseudo-literalists known as young-earth creationists. I really want people to take the entirety of Genesis 1 literally, and not just the parts they find acceptable. Saying that you believe in creation in six literal days, but without a literal dome over the earth, and without the greater and lesser [Read More...]

“Intelligent Design Research” Means Listening to Elton John

Jerry Coyne has shared a close look at the details of a Discovery Institute promotional video. They have made backgrounds that are supposed to look scientific. But if you take a screenshot and look at the details, you find things like whiteboards filled with nonsense – and the words “Rocket Man.” What else do you [Read More...]

Evidence from Answers in Genesis that Sunday School has a Positive Impact

  Answers in Genesis created the text image above. I think the evidence suggests that in churches where education is important, it has a positive impact, one that Ken Ham and his ilk would like to combat and undermine, and see replaced with indoctrination in their deceitful garbage.   [Read more...]

It Is Still A Lie

The above quote comes from a post by Jim Kidder in a series that is in turn inspired by a series by David Macmillan about being a former young-earth creationist. See too Dan Arel documenting an example of Ken Ham’s dishonesty regarding the Ark Encounter project.   [Read more...]

Science Denial Tactics

Ken Perrott shared this useful image with Sean Carroll's list of tactics used by science-deniers for more than a hundred years. Some of them claim to be standing on “the unchanging Word of God,” when the reality is they are standing on unchanging tactics of deception, which haven't changed because they continue to be effective [Read More...]

The Best Thesis Defense

  I smiled when I saw the above XKCD cartoon on Facebook. But from a more serious side, despite the saying that “the best defense is a good offense,” that isn't true in the world of arguments and reasoning, whatever its validity may or may not be in the realm of sports. No matter how [Read More...]

Attacking Genesis

A Facebook friend shared a post of mine on his wall, and it led to interesting discussion. I wrote the following in a comment: Why not pay attention to the clues to the genres of the texts that we find within them, correlating them with other literature? When we encounter a text with a talking [Read More...]

What “Biblical” Means for Ken Ham

God of Evolution shared a Facebook comment on an Answers in Genesis post, and since the coment is brilliant, I decided to share it: This is required reading for all who oppose the way Answers in Genesis misuses the Bible for their own gain. The article presents zero instances in which Jesus refers to a [Read More...]

Jesus and the Aliens

Hemant Mehta shared the image below, offering it as a response to Ken Ham’s silly remarks that we should not be looking for aliens, since they are doomed to hell because God became man and not Klingon: IO9 also had a piece dealing with the range of Christian responses to the possibility of extraterrestrial life.

Ray Comfort Hates Science and the Bible Equally

I am pretty certain at this stage that Ray Comfort is someone who is intentionally trying to make Christianity look bad. Just look at this Facebook post of his, which P. Z. Myers shared on his blog: Ancient people often thought that the dry earth is situated above the chaotic waters from which they were [Read More...]
