Ken Ham Has Trump-like Twitter Meltdown Over Ark Photos

It may be time for a new game — who tweeted it, Donald Trump or Ken Ham?

This morning, the Huffington Post published an article referring to a new exhibit coming to the Ark Encounter in Kentucky. Based on photos tweeted by Ken Ham on Thursday, it appears the “life-size” unfloatable ship will soon feature a diorama that, as Ham puts it, depicts the “wicked population in the pre-Flood world.”

The photos he included in the tweet seem to show a gladiator-type battle ring with a giant — yup a goddamn giant — about to murder a human with some kind of a spear, while a dinosaur — oh yeah, a friggin’ dinosaur — comes charging in to join the fight.  Yup, that’s just how I imagine the world was 5,000 years ago. Nailed it, Ken.

Now, to be fair, it’s unclear whether the dinosaur was invited to the fight or is breaking-and-entering.  Also, we’re not sure yet whose side it’s on — the giant or the humans.  Man, I can’t wait to see how this ends.  But I digress.

Upon encountering this delicious depiction in the Twitterverse, Ed Mazza from HuffPo was compelled to bring it forth for the rest of us to witness and be saved. Or maybe he just wanted to rip it to shreds.  However, Mazza’s level of self-control is to be commended. The only negative thing he really said about the diorama was at the end of his piece, “There is no scientific evidence for a race of giants.”

Ed, you missed a few things.

  • There is no scientific evidence a global flood occurred.
  • There is no scientific evidence the earth is only 6,000 years old.
  • There is no scientific evidence that dinosaurs existed alongside humans.
  • There is no scientific evidence that the book of Genesis is true.

The list goes on.

The best thing about this story is that it appears Ken Ham saw the HuffPo article, or possibly a similar takedown of his tweet by another media source, because soon afterward, Ham launched into a Twitter tantrum focused on “fake news,” the “mainstream media,” and their “anti-Christian agenda.”

Right, because Ken Ham is a reliable source of what’s real and what’s made up.  Someone please call the irony police.

Ken’s latest tantrum reminded me of a previous one I covered when Ham lashed out at the Washington Post over their article about We Believe in Dinosaurs, a documentary about the building of the Ark Encounter and America’s relationship with science education.

Keep ’em coming, Ken. Your persecution complex is keeping us entertained.  On a serious note though, I’m just glad all the giants were killed in the flood.  Phew!
