6. Brain surgery for Ken Ham. jk http://textsincontext.wordpress.com/2012/05/03/creation-young-earth-ham-nye-genesis-one/
lol. In truth, the antics of Ham and his ilk could be worked into a terrifying story, given a creative novelist or screenwriter.
I don’t know, I kinda doubt that the Nye debate did all that much to fund this fiasco. Some perhaps, but I will bet you a motel room gideon bible that Ham had to dip into his AIG slush fund to get this thing off the ground. As usual, the creationist tactic is to crow loudly about this or that, while they secretly and deviously pull strings behind the scenes. This will all pan out sooner or later, and we will get a better idea of what really happened.
Just my humble opinion.
And your humble opinion is welcome here any day.
The event gained worldwide attention, so I’m sure the whole marketing campaign effect was substantial for garnering investors (investing in what exactly, I have no idea).
No doubt, though, as you say, Ham probably had to initiate the project with funds of his own. Whatever the case, the “secret and devious” methods seem to be the only way they can jam creationism into the sphere of science.
I have of late eschewed bestowing titles upon certain bloggers for their baffling arguments in defense of such nonsense; I once had an ordained minister tell me the Exodus was ”fact” as there were Chariot Wheels on the bottom of the Red Sea. He was quite upset after he came to realise that your friend and mine, the incomparable, Mister Ron Wyatt ( deceased) was simply a shyster of the first degree. A real twat.
However, my favorite accolade is one that suits Ken Ham and sadly, Kentucky.
As Rod Stewart once sang …. “You wear it well….”
You can’t help but love the terminology that materializes when googling Wyatt, terms like “colossal fraud,” but on a serious note, I don’t think there’s anything more irksome to the progress of humanity than pseudo-science…or in his case, pseudo-bone-digger.
If Ham’s Ark gets built, however, it might be worth a trip to see the thing, a $100,000,000 proof of how ludicrous it is to posit Noah’s mythic ordeal as fact.
That is, unless they charge me to get in to see it.
Wasn’t there some bloke in Holland(?) that built a life size Ark as well a few years back?
When I read that funds were raised after the Ham on Nye incident I shake my head almost in despair.
These people walk among us for the gods’ sake.
Dutchman builds Ark:
Look’s like quite the undertaking, but come now, all the world’s creatures fit on that thing?
To all the Creationists out there, I can’t roll with that, sorry…
