On Ken Ham


John, this your countryman is the king of fundamentalists. The Curmudgeon does pretty good job responding to his outlandish claims.

Ham claims, without an iota of shame, that

Without appealing to Genesis, there is no foundation for marriage. Abortion becomes perfectly acceptable if we aren’t made in the image of God. Get rid of spare cats or spare kids — what’s the difference? Why should we have two genders if God did not make them male and female in the beginning? Genesis provides the answers to those questions.

One wonders whether he lived all his life in a cave. People around the world have been getting married even before some white man with a gun and a bible set foot on their lands. How do people follow him and listen to his crazy shit?

    I would like to know his story. Just read his wiki and he was a science teacher.

    And again, to the world, I apologise.

    The Bible lays the foundation for homosexuality. If there were so few women worthy of mention, and so many men of renown, who’d settle for less? And having to procreate with ones own sister has always been distasteful…except to god.

      The bible lays foundation even for how to take another man’s wife and not feel guilty about it, send him to die in a war

      well…in some South Asian cultures women are considered so untouchable and “sacred” that tribal elders (distastefully) get their rocks off with 12 year old dancing boys. I can only imagine how an American solider from, say, Mississippi, reacted when attended an Afghan “celebration” in the hinterlands?

        Aah, the bacha bazi (boy play) where the American soldiers were instructed to turn a blind eye. We defended their right to that. Unbelievable! Good point!

        This sounds to me extreme or is this a case of me suffering from ethnocentrism?

          Well….this brings up a broader question: Bacha Bazi exists and has existed for centuries. It is not universal, but it is not extreme at all in rural areas.

          https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bacha_bazi

          Westerners and western influenced people find this extremely distasteful. It is certainly contrary to many of our cultural mores. How universal are cultural mores like safety of children, distaste for exploitation, etc.? Is it wrong to express such concerns, or mere ethnocentrism?

          One can then generalize this to so many things. SLAVERY is prevalent throughout human history. Does that mean it is wrong, merely “ethnocentric” to protest? Central American nations slaughtered the losers of sacred ball games and cut out the hearts of sacrificial virgins to ensure the sun rises in the morning. This is horrific to a westerner…am I allowed to express this horror or must be silent because of cultural sensitivity? Donald Trump represents a deep rooted trend in American culture. How disrespectful of Maka and others here to question the Make America Great Again movement! for that matter, there is a decades old (centuries old?) tradition of the tribal “Big Man” in African culture. Is Maka’s (understandable) distaste not the result of cultural prejudices he has learned through a too-westernized education system?

    40% of the US supports trump and about 90% worldwide believe in a mystical god of unbelievable cruelty and judgement.
    So what does that tell you about the human race and it’s intelligence and susceptibility to fantasy.
    We have 21st century technology and science and 8th century rational thinking abilities. What could go wrong?

    Ah yes, the answer: Because it pleased the Lord.
    And why did it please the Lord? Even the Lord can’t say.
    So much for all the answers.
    Hammy is a very stable genius.

    Of course, all of his pontifications pre-suppose a belief in the existence of an omnipotent being that orchestrated both the known and the unknown universe. Remove that assumption and all of his arguments amount to nothing. They become inconsequential and worthless. Naked hugs!
