Ken Ham was asked what Answers in Genesis would do next, after building a gigantic wooden boat on dry land in Kentucky, and now Mark Looy has confirmed it: they have big dreams. They want to build a copy of Solomon’s Temple. Don’t panic, though, they promise “it’s not going to be some kind of…

Well-deserved! Bravo!

This year’s Upchucky award, which is “bestowed upon that person or organization who persists in denying evolution despite a blizzard of empirical evidence,” has gone to a particularly deserving entity: Answers in Genesis. Their plan to build a giant “life-sized” model of a fictitious boat and use it to miseducate children is a brilliant example…

Loon appears on Atheist Experience

Ray Comfort called in to the Atheist Experience with Matt Dillahunty and Russell Glasser, and now you can watch the little twit twist and writhe and make circular arguments.

NIO is doomed now

The animal rights kooks were crowing about their ‘victory’ in intimidating one student, but that’s no victory at all.
