Ken Ham’s new book

Just when you think these guys can’t get any more dishonest, here comes Darwin’s Plantation: Evolution’s Racist Roots. The tag line on the book is a quote from Ham: “Although racism did not begin with Darwinism, Darwin did more than any person to popularize it.”

Wow. More than Martin Luther, who helped make anti-semitism a favorite German pastime? More than Nathan Bedford Forrest, who helped the Ku Klux Klan grow to half a million members? More than Hitler? More than our Supreme Court in the Dred Scott decision? More than Richard Butler, founder of the Aryan Nations? More than Lester Maddox and Strom Thurmond? More than King Leopold II of Belgium?

This Charles Darwin?

Remind me, once Ken Ham dies, that I have to start a campaign to remember him as the person most responsible for popularizing piglet-raping. Truth doesn’t matter with Ham, so we can freely invent any crime we want and blame him for increasing its popularity. Anything goes, too — he’s certainly willing to stoop to any vileness to defame those he dislikes, so he can’t complain when he gets santorumed.

    Has anyone thought to ask him what the point of the book is, if any? Evolution could have been discovered by a collaboration between Hitler, Djenghis Khan, Stalin, Pol Pot and Barbra Streisand and it wouldn’t matter the slightest. (ok, but for a few chronological problems)

    A process by which pork is made even less kosher.

    someone should write a book and expose Ken Ham and his stupidity. Also the stupidity of all the creationists. Ken Ham only wants power over people who know nothing about science. It’d also be good to make a movie that would expose all the creationist nonsense which also would focus on the stupidity of all the televangelists, who make millions of dollars on poor people by talking a lot of nonsense in which they themselve do not believe. There are many examples, just turn on TV and those lunatics are all over the TV. Ken Ham himself doesn’t read the Bible, because if he had read it he wouldn’t talk nonsense. Bible talks about slavery, murder, hate etc. especially the Old Testament. Creationists do not even read the New Testament and do not even know the real teaching of Jesus. They do not even understand the real message of Jesus. The real science is about doing research, about discovering things, and creationism is about making things up,no data to support their claims. Ken Ham blams Darwin and the theory of evolution for all the bad things in the world. Does he know that Christians in the medieval times killed more people than Hitler and Stalin combined? Yes, Christians, they invented the killing of Jews, and not Hitler. There should be a book about it and a movie made that will show the real history and once and for all expose the idiocy of Ken Ham and his crack house, and all his lies. Ken Ham has done a lot of harm to our science education. He things that he stands for God, but he is wrong very wrong. When he’ll die he will get one ticket down to Hell for all his lies, and raping of childerns minds by feeding them with his nonsense. Therefore, whoever can come foraward to write a book and make a movie I talk about then it’d great. I’m writting a book titled “ID Lies Exposed”.
