Ham – Teaching Science is just Like Being Hitler

He alone, who owns the youth, gains the future!” – Hitler

That’s what Ken Ham’s arguing in his latest blog post.

This is his  take on the notion that people wish to start teaching kids about science at an earlier age. Because teaching biology would entail teaching kids about evolution and that means Ken Ham cannot tell little children that magic did everything. The problem being that Ken Ham’s take on the world is understandable by 5 year olds.

Who have no problems believing that there is a fairy that goes around exchanging baby teeth that have fallen out for money. And so will have no problems believing that we were created by magic by a god.

Now, we at Answers in Genesis agree with the mechanism of what is called natural selection, as it’s part of observational science (which can be observed, tested, and repeated). Natural selection is just adaptation, involving changes using the genetic material already existed. It’s not molecules-to-man evolution—no animal kinds change into other kinds. (For more on natural selection, see our natural selection topics page.) However, the article’s author refers to “evolution by natural selection” multiple times and wonders why it is “so hard to understand and accept.”

Which just shows Ken Ham lost some battles repeatedly and has changed bits of his stance to avoid the normal hammering creationists take at the hands of science. He has shifted the goal posts. Shifted them so far that some of the stuff he demands evolution show evidence for are not even under the purview of evolution in the same way that demanding your plumber fix your fuse box would be considered “stupid”.

Remember this is Ken Ham. A man who doesn’t understand that the Elephant’s closest relative is a small squeaky furry mammal when elephants are not small, squeaky or furry. And who cannot fathom evolution. To him elephants are a kind.

To him bacteria are a kind. To this man Homo Sapiens Sapiens (A species) is on the same level as Bacteria (an entire Kingdom). What Ken Ham knows about biology is miniscule and sad.

It would be like a man trying to argue against NASA when he thinks the sky is painted on a canvas and there is nothing outside it. To Ken Ham? Not only does he have no idea about diversity but also thinks abiogenesis is evolution (A common creationist demand)

You see, secularists know that children observe changes in animals (like different dogs). They then equate such changes with the word evolution, and use this belief to brainwash the children into believing molecules-to-man evolution.

Which is why I suggest Ken Ham play with Canis Lupus Lupus and Canis Lupus Familiaris and see how many fingers he comes back with.

Or try petting a Cape Buffalo and Daisy the Cow.

See the scary thing is. Ken thinks god made cows just for us to eat…

That’s why it’s so important for Christians to teach children correctly—and help them understand that animals do change. But, none of the changes are anything like molecules-to-man evolution.

Basically? Ken Ham demands you make kids not understand evolution so he can flog more books about Molecules to Man Evolution being a real fake thing. (Like in that it is a fake thing that we really teach people about).

The wrong “theory,” according to these researchers, is really the biblical account of creation.

Because written human history predates the Bible’s start of the Universe. And we may as well imagine a real rabbit challenged a real tortoise to a race.

We must rescue our children from the anti-God influences of the culture before it’s too late. One way you can do this is by bringing as many children as possible to the Creation Museum. This year kids 12 and under are free (with one paying adult). 

Ken Ham is right.

Education kills gods. So in order to protect this all powerful almighty beast that desperately needs our love and worship he must guarantee a generation of ignorance.

So instead I will offer this.

Come to the British Museums. All of them are free. And learn something.

And to Mr. Ham? I will say this. You know very little about Christian Theology if you don’t know who Mr. Hitler up there is quoting. Yes it is easy to portray evolution as evil if you encourage people to compare us to Hitler. By that contrast all education of children is evil since Hitler spoke about evolution.

In addition? Hitler was (strangely) a pro-lifer. Only if you were an Aryan. Hitler also was anti-smoking. Hitler also liked dogs. Hitler was a bag of dick but there were some stuff he did or was a fan of that was common sense. Simply saying “Hitler did something so we must not” is moronic. Let us not ignore good things out there simply because Hitler liked them.

Cause Hitler liked sausages and beer.

And a final point here? Hitler was quoting a devout Christian quote. One that Ken Ham would probably not know being a Protestant but here it is.

“Give me the Child at Seven and I will give you The Man”

Francis Xavier

Founder of the Jesuits

    He’s a charlatan. His concern about “observational science” is complete bullshit; he puts his faith in a 2000 year-old collection of children’s stories – he’s in no position to critique anyone’s epistemology about anything.

  2. corwyn says

    He is saying Christians should be *more like* Hitler: “That’s why it’s so important for Christians to teach children correctly”

  3. Pierce R. Butler says

    The source of Hitler’s inspiration, as quoted above, is also the namesake of the current pope (not, as too many seem to think, that sissy from Assisi).

  4. Psychopomp Gecko says

    I think it would be horrible to give up epic rap battles just because Hitler enjoys doing them.

  5. Kevin Kehres says

    Dear Ken: You claim to put your trust in the bible. My question to you is: were you there? Did you see the bible being written? How do you know it’s divinely inspired, then? How do you know it isn’t inspired by the devil? Or an alien implant?

    Prove it’s not aliens, Ken. Then we can talk.

    Regards.

  6. StevoR : Free West Papua, free Tibet, let the Chagossians return! says

    Sounds like our Ham here has a bit in common with Boko Haram, terrorists, kidnappers, wannabe slavers and all round scumbags – the name meaning apparently “western education is forbidden.

    Both hate modern education and have a Dark Age mindset.

    Nice company you keep there creationist! (Not.)

    Tee-hee. :)
