My mother-in-law is a Jehovah's Witness who "walks in the truth." We always go to her when we want to know something because, hey, who better?

They're just afraid everyone will find out about Man-Dinosaur Marriage, which was clearly outlined as God's Favorite in the Lost Book of the Bible - Diplodocus 5:19

Shut the f*ck up Ham, you con.

Creationists are stupid people, this isn't exactly surprising at all.

Never say or imply "a creationist" because there is only one, and he is Ken Ham.  It should always be referred to as "the creationist."
 
2017-04-14 09:32:36 AM  
The truth is being covered up by the lack of evidence.  Isn't the lack of evidence just more evidence that it's a realconspiracy?

FTA:  Standard scientific evidence shows dinosaurs died out 66 million years ago

I find the inclusion of that first world troubling because of its utter lack of necessity.

Nice of these folks to broadcast their ignorance so clearly so the rest of us know to avoid them.  Expressing a belief in creationism is kind of like poison dart frogs having bright colors- it's like natures way of saying stay away.

Humans lived with dinosaurs, and they still do. Why just a few weeks ago I saw a group of children gathered around a TRex skeleton at the local museum.

It is a cover up, but we're not the ones that created the hoax. The subterranean lizard people are descended from dinosaurs, and they don't want the surface-dwellers to know the lizard people have been in charge THE WHOLE TIME!!!

On an unrelated note, chickadees are probably the most appropriately named animal in the whole world.

What amuses me about the Ken Hamm types is that we all know that they know that their claims are all bullshiat.  They twist and turn in their arguments, trying to find something, anything at all really, that can be used to support their side of the argument in spite of overwhelming evidence against them, just to be able to keep the grift going.

It's the only choice they have, really, without admitting defeat.  Oh, and don't forget to stop in the gift shop, and remember to tithe this Sunday.

They're not creationists, they're opportunists.  They would declare beanie babies as a distinct evolutionary line if it meant continued power & money.

Oh, yeah, Ham.

He's easy to ignore. He's just advertising his brand.
 
2017-04-14 09:46:11 AM  
Pfft. What does Ken Ham know? Was he there? I don't think so.

But Mr Ham believes this is a cover-up and humans and dinosaurs shared Earth at one point, and the latter was eventually wiped out by the great flood.

Um, that's not completely accurate, but this is The Daily Express so not so surprising there.  That might make some sense (in a nutbar biblical view anyway) to think that the dinosaurs went extinct because of the flood.  But no, that's not what Ken Ham says.  He claims that dinosaurs we actually on the ark, but I don't think he's given any explanation why they no longer exist.  Brilliant.

Trey the Explainer has some amazing videos on this sort of stuff pointing out how insane young Earth creationists are in what they point to as proof.
 
2017-04-14 09:50:46 AM  
Humans and dinosaurs, living together; mass hysteria!
 
2017-04-14 09:51:10 AM  
Why does he care about evidence? He said straight up that nothing would persuade him from his literal interpretation of the bible, so who needs evidence?

Onomatopoeiacally speaking, of course.

I have an early illustrated version of the bible complete with video from 4,000 BC.  I have it locked in a vault.  What are you going to do about that?!

Umm...not really, no. Ham has been an incessant anti-science aussie jackwad for decades. Nye had nothing to do with that, nor did he gain any "credibility" in that debate with anyone who didn't already believe the same asshattery that he does. There's a reason he's based in Kentucky, and it's not because it's well known for fostering an enlightened and scientifically literate population.

IIRC, the dinosaurs were great sources of food and materials (bones, hide, etc) after the flood, so Noah and his brood hunted them to extinction pretty quickly after getting off the boat. Yes, I know there is nothing in the Bible that even remotely hints at this. And yes, I know that Ham and others of his ilk are the type of conman that would make PT Barnum blush.

It won't be long before a creationist comes in with a rambling jumble of words conflating different subjects with tortured logic.  Try to get one to sit still on one particular aspect of their claims so it can be examined and they will do their best to move to a different subject.

There IS this great display at the Creation Museum (Yeah, we went once.) that explains remains in rock layers in terms of how high particular animals managed to climb before the flood waters overtook them. It's a hoot (for anyone with a three-digit IQ).

Ask four creationists about dinosaurs and the Ark, and you'll get six different stories.
