In a rant last night, Creationist Ken Ham went off on atheists, simultaneously blaming us for suppressing the “truth” of Noah’s Ark while crediting us for inspiring a bigger, better Creation Museum than the one he had originally set out to build:
To state the obvious, no one’s worried that Ark Encounter will “open the eyes of millions.” We’re worried it’ll shut their brains off. That’s the general frustration with his brand of fundamentalism. There’s no critical thinking involved. You won’t hear Ham telling anyone to get in a lab or run some experiments. It’s just “believe and regurgitate.”
If atheists caused him to build a bigger museum in a different location, that’s news to me. Considering building permits are signed and construction begins long before the opposition to the content inside hits a fever pitch, it’s hard to believe he signed all the papers, heard atheists complaining, and then said his version of, “The wall just got 10 feet higher.”
Given the time he posted those tweets, it sounds like atheists are getting under his skin and giving him nightmares. So at least we’re succeeding on that front.
