Ken Ham Doesn’t Like Atheist TV


To be honest, I’m pretty much completely ambivalent about Atheist TV myself. I don’t have a Roku and I’m certainly not going to buy one just to watch that channel. But Ken Ham is hopping mad about it and making all the usual stupid arguments we’ve come to expect from him.

Creation Museum founder Ken Ham recently broke his silence regarding his thoughts on the brand new Atheist TV channel.

“Laws of logic shouldn’t exist in a completely random materialistic universe that the atheists believe in-and yet they do!” said Ham, according to a Charisma News report.

“It is incredible that atheists spend so much time, effort and money arguing against someone that they don’t even believe exists! Where are all their books, websites and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny? This is because they do know God exists, but they are suppressing the truth in unrighteousness (Rom. 1:18).”

*yawn* Hey, I bet if it was nearly impossible to get elected without professing a public belief in the Easter Bunny, or if those who believed in the Easter Bunny controlled public policy based on the doctrines they derive from that belief, there would be lots and lots of books and magazines and websites countering the absurd idea that such a creature exists.

“Sadly, this new TV channel is not just targeting adults with a hopeless message of godlessness, but they are also trying to indoctrinate children into an atheistic worldview.”

I know, right? It would be kinda like if a group built museums and theme parks to teach blatantly false things to children. And then demanded public funding for it. But who would do that?

    He may want to actually talk with some atheist parents. I’m not sure how many kids are going to be watching AtheistTV.

    Huh. I thought these people keep saying that criticising another’s message goes against the principle of free speech?

    Ken Ham is making a false equivalence.

    The Easter Bunny is the same as fundie xianity. He is not.

    If the Easter Bunny had 60 million brain dead, glassy eyed followers, filled with hate and fear, and trying to take over the USA and destroy it, then we would be opposing his religion and his followers.

    We would not be opposing the Easter Bunny though. No matter how manty believe in him, he still doesn’t exist.

    You all laugh, but you’ll be sorry when the time comes to be judged by the Holy Bunny and you are sent to a horrible existence where there are no chocolate bunnies and jelly beans!

    Repent! Repent, I say!

    I have no particular interest in an Atheist tv channel, but if it pisses off Ken Ham then its work is done.

    I watched the Athiest TV channel. 24/7, it’s an eternity of nothing. The commercials, if anything, are a relief, from the yawning chasm of despair. The show on nihilist home decor isn’t bad, though.

     

    Where are all their books, websites and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny?

    He’s obviously not a follower of my work.

    … Ken Ham recently broke his silence …

    Don’t worry, folks: it was only a teeny one, and he hadn’t had it for very long.

    Ken Ham: Where are all their books, websites and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny?

    Bad argument. (Does he make any other kind? Rhetorical question.) Such sites exist; he just hasn’t looked for them. Snopes does a pretty good job, and provides six or seven print references. But the one I like is here.

    Yes, but to be fair, Atheist TV ain’t fond of Ken Ham either.

    It is incredible that Ken Ham spends so much time, effort and money arguing against evolution, a scientific theory he doesn’t even believe exists!

    A certain world weariness from Hambone seems detectable.

    It all seems rather pat, automaton and frankly traditionally ludicrous, considering that free channels are stuffed to the gunnel’s with religio mumbo jumbo and no one bleats about the airwaves being polluted with sweaty haranguing preachers..

    Hambone seems rather distracted and not his usual rumbustious self, that was a rather a cursory grump.

    Cash flow stagnating Ken…?

    here are all their books, websites and magazines that argue against the mythical Easter Bunny?

    How does Ken Ham know the Easter Bunny is mythical?

  13. anubisprime says

    Ichthyic @ 14

    How does Ken Ham know the Easter Bunny is mythical?

    Indeed…maybe someone should ask him if he was there?

    Gee, thanks Ken. I didn’t even know there was an Atheist TV channel on Roku.

    Now I’ll have to watch it endlessly. And make sure that every small child within 100 miles of me watches as well.

    Love the Streisand effect.

    Kevin Kehres, #16:

    lol

    That’s what I thought, too. I just acquired a Roku and I didn’t know there was an atheist channel. After this post appeared I looked it up and waddya know? There it is!

    Ken Ham could set up his own Roku channel, if he wanted. (Disclaimer: I have friends that work for Roku.)
