I’m feeling a bit nauseous right now. I’m not sure whether I’m coming down with the flu, or whether it was merely the monthly arrival of answers update, the newsletter from Answers in Genesis, which is mainly a catalog selling garish lies.
Anyway, the reason I’m writing this instead of either puking into the ceramic shrine or tossing the rag into the trash is that Ken Ham has pulled his usual stunt of pulling a quote from some godless critic of his “museum” and wrapping a pious sermon around it, without attribution or linkage. In this case, the quote is from someone Ham refers to only as “a secular humanist” or “this secularist”, and here it is:
For me, the most frightening part was the children’s section. It was at this moment that I learned the deepest lesson of my visit to the Museum: It is in the minds and hearts of our children that the battle will be fought; and it is they who will suffer the most because of this.
Helpful fellow that I am, I will give the citation the neglectful fraud ‘forgot’ to make. The quote comes from Patrick of Ann Arbor, Michigan. Congratulations, Patrick! You know you’re doing good when the creationists start using your words in their fundraising!
Everyone should read the rest of his article on the Creation “Museum”, too — it’s the criticism Ken Ham doesn’t want anyone to see, after all.
Now I have to go throw this ugly mag away, and hope my symptoms disappear.
