  • Southern Baptist pastor Rodney Kennedy responds vigorously to an attack by Ken Ham here. A sample:

Ken Ham:

. . . people believe as we do at AiG (Answers in Genesis) because they take God at his Word — their beliefs come from God's Word, not Ken Ham!


“Taking God at his Word” may be the most subjective statement in Ham’s criticism. In what way can this be reality when millions of other believers make the same truth claim but come to different conclusions? There’s no ambiguity in Ham. He’s certain that he and his followers take God at his word. He never says, “I believe that the Word of God teaches this or that.” He insists that the Word of God is the same as the Word of Ham in spite of his denials.

Ken Ham

From his Wikipedia page:

Kenneth Alfred Ham (born 20 October 1951) is an Australian born Christian fundamentalist, young Earth creationist and apologist, living in the United States. He is the founder, CEO, and former president of Answers in Genesis (AiG), a creationist apologetics organization that operates the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter.

Ham advocates biblical literalism, accepting the Book of Genesis creation narrative as historical fact and believing the universe and the Earth were created together approximately 6,000 years ago, contrary to the scientific consensus that the Earth is about 4.5 billion years old and the universe is about 13.8 billion years old.
