He begins by quoting John 1.1 in the NKJV. Not the Greek, but a translation. As such, he writes, In this verse, the Greek word logos is translated “word.” There is much that could be said about the word’s deep meaning in regard to Jesus being the Word, the Creator who spoke the universe and life into existence (Colossians 1). via Should BioLogos Be Called “ContraLogos” Instead? | Around the World with Ken Ham. From there, he only gets worse. His argument, all of his arguments really, are based on a translation and not on what the theological emphasis behind
This is the trailer: Ham is characteristically freaking out – almost as much as the Dagon worshipers in one of those books of Daniel. Oddly enough he calls out the Jews for his support, although he doesn’t really understand much about Second Temple interpretation of Noah from the Jewish perspective nor even modern rabbinical commentary. This is apparent because he like wise misses the material, at least in the trailer in his preview (of a movie he hasn’t seen), present from the pseudepigrapha. Reading Ham makes this movie that much more seeable.
If people really knew the Bible, con-men like Joel Osteen and Ken Ham would be out of business. – Bryan Bibb Read the post…
Yesterday, in a rant against scholastic investigation into Scripture, Ken Ham makes the startling statement: Now, there is not a single statement in Scripture affirming polygamy… Hold up there, Kenny.

I mean, we have 2 Samuel 12.1-11 where God chastises David through the Prophet Nathan about the incident with Bathsheba. Several statements affirm polygamy is God’s gift to David (2 Samuel 12.8) and that the removal of polygamy from David is a sign of
I and other bloggers have written posts on the school tests demanding that the correct answer to the age of the earth is 6000 years. The school in question has been named as the Blue Ridge Christian Academy. Several bloggers have since responded to this news as well. Ken Ham has likewise responded with his usual calm, measured demeanor: It seems that since the last presidential election, atheists have grown more confident about having something of a license to go after Christians. These secularists want to impose their anti-God religion on the culture. They are simply not content using legislatures
Any casual student of human behavior will recognize that straw man arguments and other logical fallacies usually indicate the presence of either an untempered or irrational mind. Such is the case with the latest assault posted by Ken Ham on his Facebook wall (of persecution). James and others have responded to the clear indication that Ham has some sort of unhealthy fascination with the good (and real) Doctor McGrath. As the latter has shown, Ham has a demonstrated in a very unstable response revealing it is not AIG who is getting to McGrath, but the other way around. What
Someone brought this up in the blogosphere, and considering that I love to dabble in various things, such as linguistics (I am stuck on the aurality of fanny and fancy in U.K. English at the moment), I figured I’d show case some of the silliness here. If you don’t want to watch it, click here to see a demonstration of the above insanity. Way back when, when I was but a young lad, I heard this from a young earth creationist guild. Watching this video brought that rumor back. Anyway, before you get all hizzy-pizzy, I want to call attention to
