Ken Ham Alarm Bells

Having sat through a debasement of science at a Ken Ham talk, I should not be surprised at the old trick of circular reasoning he is trying to pull. Namely, if someone says this do not listen – they are anti-god. Whatever evidence they have say the god of genesis trumps whatever backs up your statement.

As Christians, we need to have a mental security system where an alarm goes off when aspects of this anti-God religion are presented. Here’s what should happen when you hear or read the following:

“Millions of years” should set off a mental buzzer that says, “warning—this is an attack on biblical authority—this is a buzz word to say there was no global Flood.”

“Evolution” should set off a mental buzzer that says, “warning—this is an attack on biblical authority—this is a buzz word to say creation by God was wrong.”

“Feathered dinosaurs” should set off another mental buzzer that says, “warning—an attack on biblical authority—this is a buzz word to say creation by God was wrong.”

PZ Myers points out the Microrapter, and the evidence that dinosaurs were before birds. See more of his blog here.

Basically if you can never ever be proved wrong, that is not a basis to say you are right. Beware circular reasoning, it will make your head spin.
