Ken Ham is best known for being the President of the Answers in Genesis (AiG) ministry and the Creation Museum who encourages Young Earth Creationism (YEC). The museum opened in 2007 at Petersburg, Kentucky. He’s become a multi-millionaire through deception and being an evangelical charlatan. Young Creationism involves taking the book of Genesis literally and believes that the Earth is no older than 10,000 years. The pseudoscience of creation science is one that the YEC promote, despite the courts of the United States claiming that it has no scientific basis and is instead a religious view, or attempting to promote a religious view, as described in the Edwards v. Aguillard case. It completely disregards the Darwin theory of Evolution, despite its abundant evidence, and as the below picture shows, Ham believes that Dinosaurs lived alongside man, which must amuse Palaeontologists no end.
Ken Ham is an advocate for the creationism story in Genesis where God allegedly built the universe and all within it in six days, and that we are all descendants from Noah, who built the ARK in preparation for the Great Flood. YEC believe that all of the world’s fossils were displaced around the world during the flood, and claim Genesis explains the world’s geological history. Obviously the YEC reject the age of the universe, and the theory of the Big Bang, and replace it with the pseudoscience of creationism. Most scientists that study the Earth, Universe, carbon dating and evolution, frankly think that the YEC are indoctrinated and brainwashed beyond help, and that charlatans like Ken Ham are exploiting weak-minded people for profit and religious advantage.
“Evolution is a religion; it is not science” – Ken Ham
Amusingly the above quote is exactly how science views creationism, yet Ken Ham promotes this belief, but does he really believe it, or is it advantageous for him as he saw a market he could scam, as there are many vulnerable religious people in America.
“What are the minimum figures for animals on the ark? Researcher Arthur Jones, writing in the Creation Research Society Quarterly in 1973, simply put these qualifications at a family level and did the numbers.4 He arrived at about 1,000 families (and equated this with kinds). This would be about 2,000 individuals taken on the ark.” – Ken Ham
Scientists claim that there are currently over 10,000 species of birds, with many species lost to extinction. Where were the species of birds during the Great Flood? They’d have to land at some point. Without over exaggerating, scientists claim that there are between 1,000,000 and 5,000,000 species of insect, with a very high percentage being beetles. Where were these during the Great Flood? There are over 1,000 species of cattle, so how has Ken Ham concluded that there were just 1,000 species and 2,000 individuals on the ARK. Just visit any zoo that’s trying to breed endangered animals and see how difficult it is to get two animals to breed.
The biggest issue I have with the likes of Ken Ham is the deceit and wilful ignorance. He claims that secularism is destroying the west, and refuses to acknowledge that secularism is the only fair way to protect his religion, and other religions. He cries about LBGT wishing to force their rights onto other people, but demands that Christianity, and creationism be the only way. He’s such a hypocritical fool. He claims that evolution is a religion. If it’s a religion, it’s the only one with any evidence. He’s everything that’s wrong with Christianity inside one body. He promotes his vindictive propaganda on social media every day, and is in reality no more than a troll, who fills his bank with money received through deception. I’m sure his God would be extremely proud!
