Progressive Christianity is a Threat to Ken Ham’s Deceptions

Ken Ham has gone on record as saying that progressive Christianity is dangerous. This is good news. Any authentic Christianity ought to seem dangerous to oppressors and charlatans and the narrow-minded. Otherwise, we are doing it wrong. Among the ironic things Ham said was this gem: Apparently they call this sort of thing ‘Progressive Christianity.’ [Read More...]

Ken’s Ark

PZ Myers shared the above graphic, which uses a comparison to illustrate the problems with claiming that the Noah’s ark story is a factual one. But it seemed to need to be updated, given the fact that Ken Ham’s ark replica park is sinking. And of course, like so many conservative Christians, he is happy [Read More...]

Christianity or Young-Earth Creationism? Time to Choose

It is time for conservative Christians to say goodbye to young-earth creationism once and for all, just as they did with slavery. It is hard to take a dramatic step, but a moment arrives when you simply cannot persist in doing evil any longer and retain even the pretense of being a Christian. That moment [Read More...]

Darren Aronofsky Beats Ken Ham for Noah’s Ark Realism

Peter Chattaway shared this sneak peek of the upcoming Noah movie starring Russell Crowe: Compare what you see in the Answers in Genesis ark park and its anachronistic depiction of Noah’s workshop, about which Fred Clark recently posted: Of course, talking about “realism” in different types of depictions of a story that is not realistic is [Read More...]

Ken Ham’s Authority on Dinosaurs

A writer, as the old saying about reporters goes, is only as good as his or her sources. Whom does Ken Ham quote for information about dinosaurs? Take a look at this: That’s right. He goes straight to one of the leading authorities on dinosaurs in recent years, namely Michael Crichton, author of Jurassic Park and The [Read More...]

Contesting Faith, Truth, and Religious Language at the Creation Museum

As the Butler STS blog mentioned today, my colleague Brent Hege will be giving a brown bag lunchtime talk about the Creation Museum tomorrow. It should be very interesting! [Read more...]

Creation and Evolution: The True Stories

I had barely posted on the fact that the story of Noah's ark makes at least slightly more sense when one includes hyper-fast evolution, when the blog The Layman's Answer to Everything posted about the story of Noah's ark being a parable of evolution. When the metaphorical flood comes, the fittest survive. Then Chris Brady [Read More...]

A Hebrew Grammarian’s Real Answers in Genesis

Robert Holmstedt normally blogs about Hebrew grammar. But the nonsense Answers in Genesis spouts about the Bible and not just science has irked him enough to comment. Here’s a taste of what he wrote in a recent blog post: If a person’s view of the authority rests on reading Genesis scientifically and so his or her [Read More...]

Answers in Genesis according to the Uncyclopedia

Today I had my attention drawn to the “Answers in Genesis” entry on the Uncyclopedia. It begins as follows: Answers in Genesis is a satirical Christian ministry that parodies the genuine Pastafarian ministry Answers in the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It aims to portray Christians as mouth breathing, arm swinging retards who sit on their high horse [Read More...]

Cowboys and Dragons

It sounds like it should be the name of a TV show for children. But it is instead a display at the Creation Museum. This is the sort of thing that Ken Ham wants people to believe: The photo is courtesy of John Loftus’ recent blog post about his visit to the Creation Museum. Answers [Read More...]

Seraphosaurus?

I am grateful to Michael Heiser for making me aware of Ben Stanhope's blog, “Remythologized,” and more specifically his post about a visit to the Creation “Museum.” It includes a discussion of Ken Ham's attempt to treat the seraphs of the Bible, winged serpentine beings, as pterosaurs or something similar. Read the entire post. From [Read More...]
