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...]

God’s Not Happy

Someone using the zip line, a new attraction at the Creation Museum, was struck by lightning. I checked the source, and it isn’t The Onion. Surely, if the core belief of Answers in Genesis is true, namely that removing God from so-called natural phenomena by appealing to scientific explanations is inappropriate, then God is displeased [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.

Read the entire post. From [Read More...]

Do Young-Earth Creationists Worship the Devil?

Young-earth creationists claim that the being who made the Earth and humankind is neither trustworthy nor honest. Their concept is of a God who makes the universe look like it is a particular age, and the Earth look like it is a particular age, even though they were created much more recently, and then condemns [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...]
