He Did Not Just Say That, Did He…?

Creationist Ken Ham wants to make sure you don’t see the movie Noah because — *gasp* — it’s not biblically accurate. In an interview, he explained his fear and gave the greatest sound bite ever:

If Faculty Members Don’t Accept Young Earth Creationism, This Christian College May Fire Them

Here’s how you know the college you go to is a really shitty one: Administrators force faculty members to sign pledges that they won’t teach real science.

That’s what’s happening right now at Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s named after William Jennings Bryan who defended Creationism in the Scopes Money Trial nearly a century ago.

“If he builds that ark, it’s my strong opinion, it’s bad for the commonwealth of Kentucky and bad for scientists based in Kentucky and bad for the U.S.,” Nye said. “And I’m not joking, bad for the world.”

Nye said he was “heartbroken and sickened for the Commonwealth of Kentucky” after learning that the project would move forward. He said the ark would eventually draw more attention to the beliefs of Ham’s ministry, which preaches that the Bible’s creation story is a true account, and as a result, “voters and taxpayers in Kentucky will eventually see that this is not in their best interest.”

And here’s Creationist Ken Ham yesterday, missing the mark as usual:
