Testing Young-Earth Creationism

Cdbren, a young-earth creationist commenter who was caught engaging in dishonest practices on this blog a while back, has made a reappearance, this time to (among other things) complain about my focusing on chalk deposits like the famous White Cliffs of Dover as counter-evidence to young-earth creationism. But as commenter Ian pointed out, it is [Read More...]

It’s Real

I was recently asked by a friend whether the test in the photo below was real. Apparently it is, and comes from Blue Ridge Christian Academy. Click through to see the second page. It is disturbing that a child sent to the school by a parent who had no idea this garbage was being taught [Read More...]

Jeff Carter made this spoof movie poster:     [Read more...]

God of Evolution Responds to Ken Ham

The blog God of Evolution posted the above response to Ken Ham. Much more succinct than my own!   [Read more...]

Ken Ham, Moses, and Jesus

Ken Ham has posted a reaction on Facebook to an image I shared on my blog yesterday (you can read the comments from his cronies there). I’ll share the text of his Facebook post here and then discuss it: Come on James McGrath, do you really think stooping to such lows befits a professor at [Read More...]

Would Ken Ham Listen?

A friend on Facebook shared this with me: To paraphrase what Abraham said to the rich man in the parable in Luke’s Gospel: Ken Ham has the Bible and the evidence of creation. If he won’t listen to these, he won’t listen even if a voice comes from heaven. [Read more...]

Shamed By You Knowing Science?

Scott Bailey included this image in a recent post: One thing that struck me about it is that, if you don’t actually know English, you might not realize just how unsuitable a teacher the person who placed the advertisement is. Something similar is the case with science, and Biblical studies, and history, and many other [Read More...]

Noah’s Publisher

He was concerned with marketing to the young-earth creationist market, no doubt. Via Facebook   [Read more...]

Happy St. George’s Day!

I am sorry that I did not get around to wishing readers a happy St. George's Day until now. Perhaps it ought to be a young-earth creationist holiday. Ken Ham claims that the legends about St. George and the dragon are proof that humans and dinosaurs (including some that breathed fire, if the billboards for [Read More...]

Young-Earth Creationists are Full of Hot Air When it Comes to the Flood

Facebook friends have pointed out a few interesting tidbits related to the notion of a global flood in Genesis. One pointed out Genesis 8:1, which says: But God remembered Noah and all the wild animals and the livestock that were with him in the ark, and he sent a wind over the earth, and the [Read More...]

The Evolution of Language

In a post about five jobs a creationist cannot do, linguistics was included. Since some might be surprised, I thought I’d comment a bit more on that. Creationists deny linguistics, just as they deny evolution and astronomy and geology, because of an approach to Genesis which they think is literal. In this case, the story [Read More...]
