Ray Comfort is an idiot; kind of like a credulous little kid. He even enjoys being the class fool by making his vague circumlocutions and totally fabricated remarks about science. He then goes on to admit that he has no knowledge whatsoever of science. He thinks he is being "cute." I consider him generally discredited and his hate for Catholics and all other xtian sects exhibits his insecurity and his need to demonize others. I see him as a pathetic dunce, at best.
Now we have Ken Ham
From the New Yorker Magazine:
"Dystopia in Kentucky"
".......The sixty-thousand-square-foot museum mimics the language, layout, and technical effects of state-of-the-art science museums: mastodon fossils and mineral crystals, soaring dioramas of life-size animatronic dinosaurs, several movie theatres, conference rooms, cafés, even a planetarium, and an echoing soundtrack of bird calls. But, as you pay your $19.95 and walk through the entry hall, there are clues that this is all a sophisticated sham.
The simulation serves a primitive ideology known as “young-earth creationism,” which promotes the idea that the earth is just over six thousand years old and that the fossil record appeared after the Flood, around 4300 B.C......" But hey, you all knew that.
Here is the tripe that I'm bitching about today.
He has an article up, "Too Many Theories?"
If you have a few minutes, and the stomach for bullshit, have a look and let us know what ya think of this shit.
Ham is bringing in millions of dollars but he did have a quiet mutiny among his minions last year.
I can see his followers donating money to the Kentucky monument to dystopia, but he was quietly testing the waters to try to build a Creation Museum on the Island of Saipan!
Oh! that would have been a coup d' etat, to place a monument to his silly beliefs on an idyllic Pacific island. And what a better place to hang out! He claimed that tourism would bring the visitors, but when Ham's minions discovered that most of the tourists were Japanese, who wouldn't even think of going to a pit of ignorance like that, they balked and the project was dropped. It is obvious that the Hamster considers himself a God, and makes his followers treat him like one, but he went a bit too far in this case.
[Disclaimer] After writing the last paragraph I was looking for some supporting documents but it seems that they have disappeared. So, rather than delete the paragraph please consider it anecdotal until I do find some cites.
Let's rip on him a bit!
Looks like Ham is still trying to make it happen.
"A controversial organization's bid to build a museum devoted to creationism on Saipan appears for now to be on hold due to a need for funding and land for the project, according to a spokesman. In a statement, David Crandall of the group Answers in Genesis said that building a museum on creationism-the belief that the biblical account of the Earth's origins is literal truth-in the CNMI is still on the group's agenda..........
In a 2007 statement that was signed by more than 800 scientists after the opening of the Creation Museum, the National Center for Science Education said that students “who accept this material as scientifically valid are unlikely to succeed in science courses at the college level. These students will need remedial instruction in the nature of science, as well as in the specific areas of science misrepresented by Answers in Genesis.”
This is outright fraud.
