Bryan Fischer Award Nominee: Ken Ham

The Bryan Fischer award is given to those who display a total lack of self-awareness, accusing their opponents of their own worst sins and attributes. Young earth creationist Ken Ham pulls off a rare double axel of stupid, combining psychological projection with a clear violation of Godwin’s law by comparing a new humanist website for kids to Hitler and calling it brainwashing.

They claim they are not proselytizing — but that is exactly what they are doing. They are aggressively preaching their anti-gospel message in the hopes to capturing the coming generations of kids.

As Adolf Hitler said: ““He alone, who owns the youth, gains the Future!”
(–Adolf Hitler, as quoted in Nazi Conspiracy and Aggression, vol. 1 (Washington, D.C.: United States Government Printing Office, 1946), p. 320)

Many Christians seem to be blind to the spiritual battle going on around us. The atheists are moving to aggressively do what they can to secularize the culture and try to get rid of Christianity. These people are some of the most intolerant around.

Now remember, this is a guy who tells blatant lies to kids about the world being 6000 years old. And this is the terrible, Hitler-like “brainwashing” that he is so verklempt about:

Oh, the humanism!

    It somewhat telling that “think for yourself and learn as much as you can” is seen as an anti-gospel message. I actually agree, but I’m surprised to see their side acknowledging it.

    I’m sure there’s a better term for this, but I call this just “stand pat thinking,” the idea that your point of view is the only possible one, and no others need even apply for consideration. It’s not even circular, because circular thinking at least gives an illusion of motion in thought, moving from premise to conclusion, then back to premise, and so forth, round and round. “Stand pat” doesn’t even have the virtue of the appearance of motion; premise and conclusion are the same thing in a closed mind; and it makes it easy to dismiss all other points of view as, simply, nonexistent for all practical purposes.

    Ken Ham would agree with Martin Luther’s statement that “Reason is the greatest enemy that faith has.” Come to think of it, so do I!

    Ken doesn’t care what you say about him. A spike in the donation graph is the only thing that interests him.

    They claim they are not proselytizing — but that is exactly what they are doing. They are aggressively preaching their anti-gospel message in the hopes to capturing the coming generations of kids.

    I wonder just what Ham thinks he is doing when he has a roomful of kids, often 4 or 5 years old, chanting “Were you there?” If that isn’t trying to own the youth, what is?

    His complaint, therefore, is that atheists are taking a page out his and every other church’s playbook and his fear is that the atheist message of thinking will be more effective.

    Because everyone knows that Hitler’s agenda was all about teaching young children critical thinking skills, and providing health care.

    The news isn’t all bad.

    1. Attendance at the Monument to Modern Plastics aka the Museum is down year over year.

    2. AIG itself is losing money. Hard to see why since all they sell is trash.

    God is in charge and everything happens for a reason. God doesn’t seem to like creationist conmen.

    AiG Kids’ page: 34 errors, 23 warnings (HTML 4.01 Strict.)

    Sure wish Ken Ham would at least “proselytize” for valid HTML.

    So Aig kid’s page says:

    “The word mammal is man-made, meaning that it is a method of classification defined by people.”

    What about the word god? It’s pretty clear that it is a method of classifying invisible beings defined by people.
