Ken Ham Announces Scaled Down Ark Park

Yes, this is satire…I think. [Read more...]

Ken Ham, Whovian

I learned previously that Ken Ham is a Doctor Who fan. But a photo in a recent article on RawStory made it clear that he is a die-hard Whovian. I find it distressing enough that he is associated with my faith tradition as a Christian. But that he is a Whovian as well seemed too much [Read More...]

Historical Science, Jesus, and Evolution

One popular objection in our time to evolutionary biology is a bogus distinction between observational science and historical science. It is a slightly more elaborate – but no more persuasive – version of Ken Ham’s infamous “Were you there?” The irony is that this approach represents an attack on Christianity even more than it is [Read More...]

YEC: First Step Towards Atheism

It is entirely possible that Ken Ham genuinely believes that his life’s work is filling holes in the cracks in the dam that he thinks keeps the flood of atheism from sweeping over weak Christians. But as I’ve pointed out here before, the truth is quite different. The flood he fears actually includes much that [Read More...]

Dangerous Debates?

Some predicted that the overall harmful effects of debates such as Bill Nye’s with Ken Ham would outweigh the benefits. What do you think? Hemant Mehta shared a talk Nye gave recently in which he talked about the debate (among other things): IO9 shared a famous example of the danger of engaging a fanatic in debate. The article’s [Read More...]

Sleight of Hand

The fundamental problem with Ken Ham and his ilk is—and always will be—not science, but biblical hermeneutics. That is, how one understands and interprets the Bible as sacred writ. The sleight of hand trick that the Creationist overlords play on Christian flocks is: if they can convince people to interpret Genesis literally and without critical [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...]

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.

Were You There (When They Crucified My Lord)?

I saw the image above on Facebook, and thought that playing on the similarity was a cheap shot. But then someone added the “Were you there…?” quip, and that made it even funnier.   [Read more...]

How Fundamentalists Promote Atheism

The image below is a composite of a Christian response to the Ken Ham/Bill Nye debate, plus the scientific explanation of sunsets. It is frustrating that there are people who consider themselves Christians and yet seem to be making every effort to promote atheism. Why on Earth would anyone feel the need to choose between [Read More...]
