Amazing! Ken Ham chooses to celebrate an event where just about every living thing was condemned to drown, yet criticizes modern society for accepting homosexuality and abortion. Think on that for a moment. With a few exceptions, every living thing on Earth was unilaterally killed by the slow process of water filling their lungs. That’s every animal, every child, every adult, every new-born baby. Yet Ken Ham celebrates this as a good thing.

On the other hand, Ham rages against homosexuality as an abomination. In his twisted world, consensual love between adults of the same sex is as an abomination in comparison to every living thing slowly and deliberately suffering death as the air in their lungs is replaced by water.

He also rails against abortion, claiming millions of children are killed. I’m no expert, but I believe abortion clinics are run by well-meaning, well trained medical people who undertake what is probably an unpleasant procedure a...See More

As always, Pat, you make what may be the central point ... regarding Ham, the Hovinds, Pat Robertson, Joel Osteen, and the rest of them:

Religion Is A CON ... a con which may pay better than any other con in history, and when you combine that with P. T. Barnum's alleged words about one being born every minute, it's almost a puzzle why more people aren't tapping into that same pot.  What makes it so airtight is that it's a con which has the approval of the general public, because of all the supposed good it does.

That con has run for a considerable time now ... millennia, in fact, and it's paid off like topsy.  Question is, though, can it do it forever, or will the wormwood creeping in in the form of the internet and all the activities poking holes in religion deprive it of its airtight status?

Maybe he is insane, and then again, maybe he's not. I realize the idea of people having pet velociraptors is complete and utter ignorance. And, glorifying mass murder that makes Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Rwanda, and North Korea combined look like pikers, is inherently evil. 

On the other hand, how many tour buses fill up his parking lot? At $29.95 a pop for adults and $15.95 for kids, along with the profit from the food court, souvenirs, and overpriced knickknacks at the bookstore/gift shop, A postcard that costs $5.00 per 250 and selling for $1.50 per card is not a bad profit margin. I suspect he's raking it in from all the evangelical church trip and bible summer camp visitors. Does he really believe this crap? Maybe. Even probably.

However, what I suspect he really believes in is that which has motivated sanctuary keepers and conjurers from the priests of the temple of Isis to Joel Osteen. $$$$$$$

The universal prayer of everyone of the likes of Mr. Ham. "In God We Trust. All others pay cash."

Ken Ham is an idiot. Rebuilding Noah's ark would have no more effect than "finding" Noah's ark. (Like if they ever found it, there would be writing on the inside wall saying "Noah" and some crude pictures of animals.) How old would that wooden boat be now? How could you possibly believe that it still existed intact, if it ever existed at all?

This is all like arguing with my Christian friend yesterday. He thinks I'm almost coming out atheist, and says there is no evidence for evolution. God created us, he said. I asked him to explain wisdom teeth and the appendix. He changed the subject.

Ken Ham hasn't just drunk the Kool-Aid; he's taken baths in the stuff.  If his god said it or did it, that's good enough for him ... which makes me wonder if he likes to eat at Red Lobster or wears blended fabrics.

The selective vision of such people is truly frightening.  That he's allowed to speak before children who will likely believe every word he says is more so.
