Creation Museum’s Ken Ham: ‘Bill Nye Really Doesn’t Understand Science’

It was bad enough when Dr. David Menton and Dr. Georgia Purdom of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum responded to Bill Nye the Science Guy with a video all about how evolution makes no sense.

Now, Creation Museum founder Ken Ham himself is jumping into the fray:

Ham talks about Bill Nye’s “agenda” (teaching science!), uses Nye’s Humanism as a strike against him, and attacks Nye for being an engineer who promotes science (as if there’s no connection between the two fields).

To point out the problems with this video would take a long time.

So I’ll summarize it in a sentence: Ken Ham is ignorant. Really ignorant. (Ok, two sentences.)

He’s so ignorant, in fact, he actually criticizes Nye for failing to teach people to think critically. I repeat: A Creationist just criticized somebody else for not teaching people how to think critically.

I was going to call Ken Ham a liar, but he’s not a liar. He’s just so self-deluded that he actually believes his own tripe. He really believes Genesis serves as credible science text.

As a Redditor pointed out, getting called scientifically ignorant by Ken Ham is like a blind person telling you you’re ugly. They have no idea…

Oh. And, as always, Ham has disabled comments on the video so no one can point out his mistakes in a place where children might be able to see it.

I actually emailed the Creation Museum a few days ago to ask if they disabled comments due to the difficulties of moderating them… which I thought could be an easy “out” for them. But they still haven’t responded to the softball question.
