Ken Ham Doesn’t Believe His Own Lies

Here’s the Creation Museum’s Ken Ham explaining the other day how people never rode dinosaurs (even though, in his mind, they lived at the same time):

Host: The last question we have here tonight, Ken, they ask: “How did men get the dinosaurs to not buck them off of their saddles when people rode them? Were the dinosaurs more domesticated and well behaved because there wasn’t as much sin back then? I’ve always wondered.”

Ken Ham: (pause) Well, I need to get paid overtime for this question… It seems we’re a bit over our time.

I don’t know where people get the idea that people rode dinosaurs. I mean, there’s no evidence in the Bible that that is so. When Job was looking at Behemoth, the description there… there’s nothing to do with people riding dinosaurs. We don’t know how people interacted with dinosaurs.

Where did they get the idea that you believe people rode on dinosaurs…?

Gee, I don’t know, maybe it’s the dinosaur in the Creation Museum that has a saddle on it so that kids (and PZ Myers) can get on top and take a picture:

But Ham says that’s just for fun. So it can’t be that…

OH! Maybe it’s the dude riding a dinosaur on the cover of Ken Ham’s book What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?:

Or maybe it’s the pictures of people riding dinosaurs in Ken Ham’s book Dinosaurs of Eden: Tracing the Mystery Through History

Lesson learned: Don’t believe the things Ken Ham pushes in his book and museum. Even he doesn’t buy into his own bullshit.
