Rabble rouser Ken Ham and his biased Facebook fans

Creationist bloggers can be infuriating. If one has infuriated you by persisting in nonsense even when corrected, or refusing to reply to your criiticsm, you may feel driven to recording the fact. If so, you may register your disapproval here and hope a response is forthcoming.

Most of the reports I've seen refer - correctly - to rain damage. Something Looy ignores.

AiG didn't build on sand - it was shale.



There is further discussion and clarification here:

Ken Ham sounds off on Facebook today

Postby a_haworthroberts » Thu May 30, 2019 6:27 pm

''Alexa and the media across the world were happy to believe in a flood at the Ark Encounter attraction for which there is no evidence, and which didn't happen—but they won't believe in a flood for which there's overwhelming evidence (massive fossil-bearing layers) all over the world.
We certainly live in the era of fake news. Whether it's the Washington Post or any of many mass media outlets in the world, which fact-checking consists of quoting other fake news sources and adding fake news upon fake news. Some media (like AP) at least eventually somewhat corrected their false flood report, but in general, the media couldn't help itself but spread fake news. Most media outlets used this item to mock those who believe in the real flood that actually occurred, but made a mockery of themselves showing they are so eager to believe anything, even fake news, just to mock Christians. Most of the media is a joke and not interested in the truth.''

That's funny. When people try to fact check the claims of Mr Ham he refuses to co-operate.

Because he has no real interest in truth - and every interest in indoctrination by creationists.

And I see that the strident threesome (the main 'Answers News' presenters) are sounding off against scientists again today:

''Naturalists misinterpret Flood debris rafts.'' The bigots are apparently upset about this - because it doesn't fit with their 'biblical' history it would seem:

Rabble rouser Ken Ham

I suspect these fish all died rapidly and en masse before becoming buried (even if the aligned pattern might have been caused after they were dead). How would a 'global' - or violent local - flood do that?

Ken Ham answers 'the flood' to any unsolved science question. But if it was the 'global' flood, the pattern of this particular fossil is decidedly unusual.

Rabble rouser Ken Ham misusing Genesis

Postby a_haworthroberts » Fri Jun 14, 2019 2:23 pm

Just seen. Odds on Ken Ham and Answers in Genesis will NOT deal with this (even though Myers, unlike me, is well-known).
(I see two of them were also proclaiming their answer here, from just past 15 minutes:

But 'rapid burial' does not fully explain what happened on this occasion - many millions of years ago.
However, if you are a YEC the only thing the only catastrophe that can explain fossilisation in the past is a 'global flood' it would seem. And guess what there's one of those in the Bible.)
