Ken Ham is my straight man

Ken Ham really hates those weasely Christians who accept the phrase “millions of years” more than he does us atheists, I think. He really gets worked up over Biologos, but I only got as far as this paragraph:

If there was not one man Adam and one woman Eve, and a literal event of the one man Adam taking the fruit in rebellion and thus bringing sin and death into world, then one may as well throw the rest of the Bible away. It would mean what God wrote through Paul in 1 Corinthians 15 and Romans 5 for instance is plain wrong. If we are not all descendants of one man who sinned, then who are we, and why are we sinners?

Well, yes. You might as well throw the Bible away, Kenny boy, and it is wrong.

It really is that simple. Why can’t you see it?

Ham also has some highly twisted logic.

“The reason the age is such an important issue is, from a secular perspective, if you don’t have millions of years, you can’t postulate evolution,” Ham explains. “Think about it: if you believe in a young earth as we do — 6,000 years on the basis of adding up all the dates in the Bible — evolution is impossible. It can’t happen.”

To the creationists, what is true is whatever they want to be true, and they’re so limited in intelligence that they project onto us their attitudes: we don’t say the earth is ancient because we want it to be so in order for evolution to work, but because that is what the evidence tells us.
