Dispatches from the Creation Wars

The Madness of Ron Wyatt

I’m sure you’ve noticed an amusing commenter by the name of Elijah Saatori recently. He showed up in the comments of my post about Nick Matzke and displayed some serious crazy and stupid. Turns out he’s a Ron Wyatt acolyte, leaving a link to this post about Wyatt discovering the real Noah’s Ark. And he issued this very funny challenge:

One last chance to study the REAL Truth. Click my name above, IF you dare !!!!!

For those of you who many not know who Ron Wyatt was, let me fill you in: He was a con man. A fraud. He was either completely crazy or the most shameless liar you’ll ever hear of. On the creationist scale, this guy made Kent Hovind look credible — and that’s not exactly an easy task.

His alleged discovery of Noah’s Ark is about equal parts funny and pathetic. It’s so bad that even his fellow creationists laughed at him. And that wasn’t even his dumbest claim. I did a long post about him about 5 years ago that you should look at. Wyatt claimed to have found everything — the ark of the covenant, Noah’s ark, the real Mt. Sinai, the spot of the crossing of the Red Sea, and the funniest of them all, the real blood of Jesus!

He actually claims to have found the Ark of the Covenant and it had the dried blood of Jesus on it. And when he had that blood tested, it only had 24 chromosomes — proving that God actually impregnated Mary. Of course, he never actually produced the ark of the covenant, or the dried blood, or the tests on the blood. With Wyatt, there was always some conspiratorial reason why he couldn’t actually show you all the things he had allegedly found.

You have to be a special kind of stupid to fall for Ron Wyatt’s nonsense.
