Killing Wonder With a Giant Ark

The above quote comes from Paul Wallace’s great blog post, “Ark Encounter and the death of wonder.” For a survey of the many lies told by young-earth creationists, see the post “Are Noah’s ark and flood literal scientific facts?” on the blog Science Meets Religion, which concludes: “Not only is this approach scientifically untenable, it [Read More…]

Young Earth Creationism Attacks the Bible

As we lament the grand opening of the Ark Encounter, here are some links to blog posts that I have been meaning to share related to that topic. Hemant Mehta was one of several voices online to point out that the use of modern construction machinery to make the Ark Encounter replica of Noah’s ark [Read More…]

Noah’s Brother

Depending on where you are coming from, you can regard this as highlighting the absurdity of trying to treat the YEC interpretation of the flood story as factual, or as laying the groundwork for another theme park, Ark Encounter II. [Read more…]

Swing By and Pick Up the Llamas

Yesterday’s Bizarro comic highlighted the absurdity of the Noah’s ark story when taken literally. One has to either have the Earth so completely changed and reshaped that it would involve a greater cataclysm than anything the Bible explicitly states or the geological record bears witness to, or one has to imagine other people in other [Read More…]

Making the World a Better Place

It depicts God acting like an immature human being, one who would happily wipe out everyone else in order to have a bit of peace and quiet, or [Read More…]

When God Closes a Door

When I saw this quip that Phillip shared on Facebook, I immediately thought that it deserved to become a meme, on the sort of demotivational poster I’ve made above. If you like it, please share it! [Read more…]

#NoahWins

Saturday’s Non Sequitur connected Noah and Twitter. It isn’t the first time such a connection has been made: [Read more…]

Did Noah Get Tax Incentives?

This meme image from God of Evolution made me laugh. It is really funny, if you think about it. Ham is claiming to be able to replicate the ark which he believes was a real thing. He also apparently cannot afford to do it without an injection of cash from multiple sources as well as [Read More…]

Unsinkable

I shared a link on Facebook to Hemant Mehta’s blog post, which points out the irony of Ken Ham running an advertisement on a billboard in Times Square complaining that religious freedom is allegedly under attack. Steve Caruso responded by adapting Ham’s billboard to feature another supposedly unsinkable ship, and I’ve shared it above.   [Read more…]

Ken Ham Announces Scaled Down Ark Park

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