"Racer. Did office a free gift of salvation to save us from what we did. So then we have to say okay. We'll had explained the fossil record while if there was a global flood. Four thousand three hundred years ago approximately. You'd expect to find billions of dead things. Married in rock lies down by water. The and that's what you find all of the earth and the more you look at the fossil lies like the grand canyon. They will lay down catastrophically. They could not have been laid down slowly over millions of years and so the fossil record is not the graveyard of millions of years primarily. The graveyard of the flood reminding his jaw. God judges wickedness but he provides an octa salvation. Like the of no a picture. Jesus one door to go through to be say. What a difference when you believe. God's would and reject a man's false ideas of millions of years don's word makes perfect sense and in fact one of your resources. I remember reading where your people had made a rock. You made a rock in your lab. It was thirty days old and they took it to these other scientists who do the carbon dating and they asked him how. How old is this rock. And they set all millions of years old. This rock is is so old and then you're people replied. Well you know that's kinda funny 'cause we just made it thirty days ago so well you know there's been lots of instances like manson helen's when interrupted a may eighteenth nineteen eighty and in the nineteen nineties. They dated the lava dome that then sealed off the ball qena and it dated to hundreds of thousands up to a few million years. Old has been you know Laba come out of the ground a new zealand. And they know when it comes out of the ground. And that's when zero years old when they dated at diced and millions years old is to show that all these dating methods have all sorts of assumptions at certainly on ballot. There's been a lot of research done on that but there's nothing in observational science that goes against the earth and the whole universe being just thousands of years old as you would get from adding up all the dates in the bible from the days of creation through allows genealogies. Yes and i urge our listeners. To please go to answers in genesis when you're teaching your children. There is so many references up a plethora of information and materials for you to teach your children the correct theology..

"Wants to attack you crack away foundation just like he wants to crack away the foundation of our children and in their minds and he wants to also destroy revelation with the misconceptions of different viewpoints about revelation as well as he wants to attack the beginning and the ending and everything else in between will fall if people listen to that so i think it's very important that our parents know the truth about genesis and teach the children the truth about genesis and so that leads me to the second question. In your many books you express. How important is to know that the earth has not been around for millions of years. Please touch upon how fossils prove the earth is not millions of years old according to the word of god and he comes another one of those issues in regard to apologetic okay and that is if you look at the younger generations. We actually did research on this. We published a book number years ago. Called already gone where we actually had a researchers. Go out and find. Those young people primarily millennials. It used to go to church now. Go to church and ask them. Why do you go to church and low the issues. I build up with things like science evolution you know. Can you believe the bible is true in this day soham but one of the issues that comes up over and over again if you look at. The atheists said a really becoming more aggressive in a culture today and what. These young people said one of the issues that they bring up over over again. How can you believe in a loving god with all the death and suffering in the world you see if you just look at it the world today you see death you see disease. Uc suffering and the idea. Is that in the. Where's you'll god of love. Now what's i got to do with millions of years almost everything 'cause you see the idea. Millions years in modern era came out of atheism of the eighteen. Hundreds when people who under explain everything without god by natural of naturalism. his atheism and that's become the basis about public education system. Today when people explain you everything without god said. The fossil lies went laid down by the global of nosedive though les dan of millions years before man and so many of church leaders and took that millions of years and say we'll put it in a gap between genesis. One one two and so came about the gap theory you know. We reinterpret the days of creation. Daij theory and many christians and i'd say the majority christian leaders from what we have researched in seen in the majority of bible colleges seminaries would say you can believe in millions years. It doesn't matter. That's not an issue of salvation. Because you know you can be christian and not believe a million g is bobble. Doesn't say you have to reject million years to be saved right while. Here's the thing when it comes to the of millions of years we've got to understand that then what you're saying is if you look at the fossil record..

"Millions years doesn't matter which has undermined the authority of the would hasn't told them apologetic to defend their faith. We've lost them from the church. And then they build a secular worldview. And if you build you foundation on man's would not god's would then ultimately anything goes judges twenty one twenty five when there's no king to tell them what to do everyone does what is right and his own is what are we see permeating across america and across the whole western world moral relativism as we see a gay marriage and abortion and racism and euthanasia and pedophilia and job transgender. And that we see which all have the same problem people build a thinking man's would instead of god's would and that's why you know deuteronomy. Six god instructs the to be teaching children when you sit down when you rise up when you woke when you lie down in one hundred percent of your time your training your children where to give them that biblical foundation from god's word yes i love your material and in your book you call it a sunday school faith. We're given our children to sunday school. Faith they only have faith that they get from going to sunday school or some Bible stories we read to them and what we're doing is just not enough. We have to do so much more. Don't you think so. Well you know it's not just a matter of what we call bob stories in fact. We even have a problem with that because today the woods story with their modern vernacular has come to mean fairy tale and kids. Have the idea you learn these stories. Church by real. Stop At school or on tv. Or something like that and see. The bible tells us always be prepared to give an answer for what we believe to give a defense. As i peter three fifteen the thing is it's one thing for you to know what the bible teaches. It's another for you to be able to deal with the secular attacks about i and that's what is being a great neglect and i think there's been a neglected two major areas in regard to raising children from the church and from our christian families. That is number one. There's been a to teach them how to answer the secular attacks about day. I mean genesis. Three we read that. The devil came to eve and attack the authority of god's would did god really say genesis three one and pull in. Second corinthians eleven. Three says the devil's going to use the same method onassis need and that method is to get us to down to not believe the word of god i call it. The industry attack and the genesis tree attack manifests itself in different ways downstream. His if you think about a peter and paul didn't have to answer questions about carbon dating in martin. Luther didn't have to deal with. Donoso is with donald. Martin would carbon dating a martin invention but the head to deal with those sorts of attacks on god's word but today the teaching of evolution millions of years and what's happened in the secularization of the education system and television and so on the questions..

"Hello and welcome to raising christian kids. I am just so excited to have this guest on my show and his name. Is ken ham. Ken ham is one of the top biblical apologetic speakers in north america. He is the president. Ceo and founder of answers in genesis. Us the highly acclaimed creation museum in the world renowned arkan counter as an author. He has sold over three million copies of his impressive collection of twenty six bestselling adult and children's books focused on the relevance and the authority of the book of genesis husband father five and grandfather of eighteen. Ken has a heart for passing on a legacy of faith and truth to the next generation as well as equipping others to defend their faith and share the message of salvation. Thank you can for being on the show today. It's great to join you. Leeann talk about this topic before driver. Big passion in regards to raising children. Yes absolutely we need to raise. We need a revolution on how raising our children. Otherwise we're going to be in a lot of trouble here shortly and so that leads me into the questions that i have for you today. The first one what do you think the world will soon look like if parents grandparents teachers ministry leaders. Don't step up to raise the next generation. According to this chamois prayer in deuteronomy chapter six. Well you know if you wanna know what it's gonna look like. I think you could look at what looks like today. And what we've seen happened catastrophically over the past few years. You know one of the problems we say whole western said we are losing the younger generations from the church. And if you look at for instance. England i mean church. Attendance is down about four percent and is very similar in you know strada and across the rest of the united kingdom europe because is even the rest of europe is much less. But if you look at america if you look at some of the statistics That have been compiled over the past few years by secular research groups pew research forum for instance back in two thousand and ten showed that when you divide generations up into groups according to win though a born so the greatest generation boom before ending twenty eight fifty six percent of they went to church. But as you go down through the silent and then you come to the baby boomers which are pot of thirty two percent and then you come down to generation x and generation y. The millennials and you find with the millennials. It's a well. You'll getting down to eighteen percent. This is back in two thousand ten and then you've got generation z. Now then generation alpha which is the youngest ones but if you look at modern research in two thousand eighteen jesus daughter explorer life and that when you look at those young generations now it's down to eleven point three percent in other words we are losing coming generations from the church and then when you look at generation z. George bonner whose christian research have found the twice as likely to be atheist as any previous group and other words twice as likely to be a is even the millennials and the recent research by the gallup poll found that they Six die say that sixteen percent of generation z. lgbt whereas if you go back to you know the the older generations over seventies it was like one point something percent but now sixteen percent lgbt. And then what's happening as they become secularized by the public education system much of the church's compromise. God's word hasn't told them the foundation from genesis. Said you can believe in evolution..

"That's just fine. I realize it doesn't matter if the universe cares by existing. It doesn't matter if there's not a divine plan. It just means that what we do with. And for each other becomes all the more critical. Human solving human problems, humans helping each other people being there for people enhancing the human experience making the most of these temporary moments on this earth, Ken ham. Good luck with the book could luck with the book. I'm sure it's gonna play great to the evangelical homeschool crowd, these pod people who were not unlike what I was twenty some years ago thirty some years ago who existed in a microcosm of reinforcement and constant confirmation bias. I'm sure they're going to say, yes, yes. Now evolution has again definitively been debunked. Of course, I wonder why God your specific God wouldn't part the curtain of the skies himself and just sort of debunked the whole thing and tell us what he or she wanted. No, no, no, Ken ham has been charged to go out and do battle to speak on behalf of God and debunk this evil devil. Born science of evolution, good luck. With that with that. And for anybody else who might be watching this circus from the periphery just know that I became the happiest in my life. When I walked away from this magical thinking, and the people that I know and the eighth easiest community in the eighth east movement, the people who I interact with online and at conferences and events in or stops gatherings. And whatever these people I asked them point blank. Would you ever go back would you ever take the pill that puts you back in the matrix? And you never knew any different, and you were happily blissfully ignorant and your religious life was what it was I've met no one I have met. No one who ever said they'd go back because there are more fulfilled. Living an honest life truthful life on their terms, they're more fulfilled. Their more emotionally and intellectually healthy when they're not having to cram. The magical thinking this dogmatic religion into the round hole of reality. They are happier. Because now they're not born with guilt and shame and all this bullshit stuff that they're supposed to carry that was infected unto them by their ancestors. They get to be themselves. Whatever that means when it comes to their identity their goals their value system, their sexuality, they are completely liberated. They are unshackled from the tethers of superstition. They would not go back and atheism. Honestly, it's not an inoculation against adminis- or the harshness of life. But I would rather live a hard reality. And then a happy fantasy, and I think most people would agree and by embracing that in our own lives. We are. In fact, happier and more well rounded and more fulfilled people can ham. Good luck. With the book pal? You're gonna need it..

"But he does he requires blood sacrifice. And so he makes his son God man on earth. Born of a virgin like other. Other gods pre Christian God's its whole other deal there. And then he is pinned alternately too few pieces of wood disappears for three days. And this is chronicled decades after it supposedly happened by people whose names, we do not even know and then translated in retranslated over a period of two thousand years. So that's not even the fundamentals of the faith can be agreed on by apologised like can ham. Yes, I don't believe the story. I've got a few doubts. Yeah. And all the guilt and shame you toss in my direction is just it just bounces off. I mean, what are you talking about? What's that mean that goes around, and they're talking about someone who's trying to attack you in in with threats of hell, they might as well be Ken ham might as well be threatening to punch me in my oral. It has to be eternal life must be eternal to have. Meaning are you shitting me? I'm drinking a Cup of coffee right here. It's delicious. Little bit of splendor and half and half perfectly mixed. I love this Cup of coffee. You know, this'll be over. I'll finish the entire Cup. And probably the next fifteen minutes. And then it will be gone. Was that Cup of coffee not worth drinking? You know, your favorite pieces of music. Have a limited time span if I hear a favorite song in my life. It's only five four five six minutes long. Maybe a longer piece of music, twelve minutes long. And then that piece of music has a final note is that not a piece of music worth listening to is it not still beautiful. You can fall in love you can love someone who has a temporary life. Maybe they die before you do because that love was temporary. Was it not worth having this whole idea that something has to last forever to be valuable is absolutely ridiculous? The very temporary nature of this life, the finite nature of our existence. And the things we have in the relationships. We have the things that we do the fact that it's not eternal is what makes every single moment. Most precious, and I don't have to have my purpose spoon. Fed to me by the authors of some superstitious. Holy book. I can self generate my own sense of purpose. And Barker's got a great book. It's a play on the Rick Warren book who had written a purpose driven life. Dan Barker had written a book called life driven purpose? We generate our own sense of purpose. Why in the world would you have to have your purpose handed to you by somebody else? This is who you are. This is what you're like. This is what you think. What you'll do? This is how you'll live. This is how you'll die. How pathetic and existence is that what a wasted existence is that it's crazy. I'm just saying. I feel the urgency of every moment in my life so much more now than I am not a believer in heaven that everything will go on and on and on and on and on and my life doesn't have to be eternal for it to be important to me. And those around me Ken ham is essentially pitching slavery is pitching. Slavery of the mind slavery of the heart and by affect slavery of the body. And he's selling it as freedom. This is insanity. And it's not up to the rest of us to make sure that can him is able to understand the basics the basics of evolutionary science. I think at this measure, he is simply a creature of confirmation bias. You know, he's got people who are going to confirm what he already thinks. He's not interested in the overwhelming avalanche of evidence. Four abolution evidence. I wasn't even aware existed until I came out of the faith myself. And I started to become honest with myself about what is and is evolution threatened to my specialness. Right. I was no longer a handpicked soldier adopted by the most powerful king and the universe to go on a divine mission. A lifelong mission with eternal reward mansions in heaven streets of gold. Pearly gates. I am not that important the universe doesn't give a shit whether or not I exist, and that's just fine..

I'm not completely oblivious to why he may have quoted me in the article, but it's not like, and I don't care what ham or anybody else. The Ray comforts of the world. The William lane Craig's of the world. It's not like people who are watching this video who are participating on my Facebook page Twitter page YouTube channel coming out to my speaking events, the people who are involved in the skeptical movement as a whole it's not like we see an article or receive a book released by Ken ham and lo and behold there is angel song in a heartless and there were rays of. Golden light coming down from on high. And they rush rush to Ken HAM's, Arkan counter or creation museum or answers in Genesis website and say, I was so deceived. I was so wrong. So cloaked and sin. I Slough off the sinful ideas, and now embrace younger creationism and a literal bible. Thank you can him. Do I think that happens ever know? Oh, no doubt. Ken ham may think that and he may sell that narrative. It's not like a more about somebody hearing this and going needed to go by Ken HAM's book right away. A man I need to go in and supplement this man's income his ministry income and personal income with my book dollars. Nobody's gonna do that they're going to wait. And there may be somebody like, you know, Hugo and Jake or somebody else will will actually review it for the rest of us. Just like I paid the admission a discounted admission to the creation museum and the Arken counter. So that I could then come and tell you about it. So you could just pretty much save your money like the mystery has been solved. Okay. The article says and this is posted. Of course, it answers in Genesis dot org.

That was awesome. He said with the new year celebrations and resolutions behind this. I'm sorry. Sorry to have to do this. I'm going to give you a most pessimistic outlook for twenty nineteen. Now as discouraging as this is I really want this letter to encourage our supporters like you who are behind the ministry of answers in Genesis, the pessimistic outlook doesn't come from anyone here at AIG. I hope that two Cy of relief. Exclamation point. And fact with each year that passes and there have been twenty five years since we started a I g we continue to see. God's goodness and faithfullness at a g just AIG over and over again here as we look forward to twenty nineteen. I'm excited about what God will accomplish in the year ahead that optimism, however, can't be said of eighth east Seth Andrews done done. His thoughts are summed up in two of his sentences.

Now, there are new people coming out of the woodwork on on the opposite side at. Yeah. Like, these guys have said anytime that there's going to be more pseudoscience or just more ridiculous delusional ideas out there in the public. There's going to be a counter movement. And we are that we don't just. Have to respond to people that have been around for ten twenty years. We didn't respond to the people who are just now cropping up with the same ideas in the relevant because of their brand new people. Now, we we've had a growth and development of new ideas, when you base, your ideas, more so on on science and something that's willing to grow and inform itself based on new data than you get that they have a lot of the same arguments lot of the same ideas. And so it a lot of the time it is diversifying the ways that we respond to them. I mean, like Thomas often says that he responds to this kind of nonsense and a really laser focus in inter way with animations and Thomas just really animated guy. Anyway. So even when he's on camera. That's how it goes telltale talks about extremism. He introduced me something that I recently covered even on my channel called the bite model and Steven Hassan's work who savings on is is a cult expert. There's not a lot of people talking consistently about colts. Before telltale lease. And then for me, I like talk about the bridge between alternative medicine, and and atheism were or skepticism just skepticism about religion in general. And so there's ways to diversify all of this stuff. So you don't just have to cash in on the alot cows as we call them. Sometimes there's there's also things that have always been around ideas have always been around and problems that have always been around that just haven't been tackled in a laser focus way yet. And that's exactly the problem that we're all trying to solve yet. Still people assume that I don't think the bible is the word of God. Because I've never read it the reality is that I don't think it's the word of God. Because I have the same goes for other religions people say you're not a Muslim because you've never studied the Koran. Yes, I have they'll say you're not a Buddhist because you've never studied Buddhism again. Yes. I have for every religion out there. There's a non-believer who has studied that extensively and still does not believe to great examples are Bart Erman for Christianity. In Abdulah, Samir for Islam. I. I understand that it can be difficult to accept that. Someone might have studied your ideas extensively be in the right, mind and still have reason to reject them because that suggests that your ideas or flawed, but that's not an excuse to egotistical assume or assert the ignorance of someone with which you disagree. You mentioned alternative medicine abuse seen the as a two. To political cartoon or something about a mother rushing or child into the emergency room because he'd overdosed..
"ken ham" Discussed on Relevant Podcast
"Scenario will choose. Comedy decisions hiring made by bicycles. Does he is? You know, I am a hard heart advocate for all this odd. Thomas stuff like bring it on like deci walk out the front door picks me up takes me want to go. And I'm playing candy crush the whole time. I never even have to look at the road. These bikes and skiers you have to drive them. But they would return by themselves. You know, I'm just saying everything's going to get the better the more like the Jetsons. The better I'm in love Jetsons. What do you have hook? All right. So I've got a we'd talked about a little bit on the site. And I'm gonna get opinions on it. I I'm sure the the slice involves someone who needs no introduction here on this podcast. Our friend of the pod Ken ham who runs runs. Genesis. Which operates the creation museum, and the arkan- counter these sort of twin like kind of a combination of a theme park and a bible study and. Sort of pseudoscience argument for six day creation theories that you got out there in Kentucky. So he has been apparently. And this Nick sense something that can him with do has been inviting local public schools to take field trips to come in to the creation museum and the Arkham counter. So he can so they can come out there and get a a sort of what will call a counter narrative to the scientific -ation. They're probably getting and their wrote on coal science education. He's giving a ball. Make sure they're here. The whole, you know here here in every theory. Well, this has run afoul of a group called the freedom from religion foundation, which is a big atheist legal group, and they take it upon themselves to keep an eye on the separation of church and state and make sure that nobody's crowd. There's not too much crossover. So they are obviously pretty upset about Ken ham asking these public schools to take field trips to the creek museum in the arkan- counter because they say that that is proselytism that's us how public school. It's that's that state funding and they're coming. They're spending their time instead of getting a real science education there come into Ken handed getting his sort of doctored version of what's going on. And I have been to the crash music. Yeah. Has not been we didn't wanna tame not media's word for we wanna see it for ourselves. We went, and I can tell you this like it was incredibly well. Done right. Like, the quality of the displays in the buildings and all this his shockingly while done, and and it the misnomer to me it was the name. It's be the creation museum because -plication a museum would be educational, right? Yeah. It was not it was entertainment educational. They had a dinosaur with a saddle on it in there. Dinosaur with us. Create everything at the same time. And so so they had a big displays they had amazing displays and stuff, and it was like the bible stories of Genesis come to life. I mean, there's an arc. There's a all these things. And so my thing is if they called it the Genesis experience or something like that. Whereas like, you know, like the holy land experience here in Orlando versus like meant to be the biblical theme thing where we bring the bible stories to life. Great. But by calling it. The creation museum does implicate that there's an entertainment our educational value to it. And there really isn't. I wanted it to get more into the young earth creationist theories. And and why or a spouse, you know, the view I wanted to get into the nitty gritty to learn. Okay. They believe this. They believe that. But they didn't do that. So this criticism is true..
"ken ham" Discussed on The Good Fight
"What I'm thinking of in particular here is the kind of Similac CRA of thority that we have examples in the creation science museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, I think founded by Ken ham where this is an additional complication of your analysis because it isn't alt- museum. It looks like a museum, but it doesn't really have the authority to explain what the items that are being showcased fossils and so on. But here you see an understanding of what religious commitment is that would have horrified someone like Kirkuk guard, right? You have a willingness on Ken HAM's hard to stake the worthiness of his religious commitment on something as trivial as the origins of this particular fossil the glass, right? And so there you have people who belong to what are in the end affect if communities, communities of people who come together for emotional reasons, none the less daring to enter the playing field of facts to stake everything on the establishment of facts where they are certainly most certainly at their weakest. They're planning. Moving in the big leagues without really being a qualified to doing. Doing is using bad as an additional argument. I mean, it seems to me like this sort of no one was about politics is that you have to play defense on your weakish us. But if if you don't, you don't get standing to speak, somebody want to win those that run. It's that you want to make sure that you don't ignore so much. You know, nobody's gonna listen to that topic. You can try and go on the offense on the cab. In a certain kind of way. That's the way of thinking about what European political parties perhaps after new on issues like immigration. A lot of the time they're trying to not talk about some of the fears fable from rusher. Rusher to instead, hey, let's talk about the economy. That's what we do in for woke us. And I think the problem with that is that you permission to speak, right? You're not taking seriously my biggest concern, right? I'm just not to strengthen what do you have to do this to have a pure and enough line on the people are sort of comfortable enough with right on this one issue, right? So that then when you say, hey, do you know what I'm gonna fight to make sure they have money in your pocket, people wound, they're going to be willing to listen to you and it seems to me like a similar strategy going. Interesting. You know, what is it called creation science fact museum. They don't want to the fact that they need to play defense on that. That when you go into biology classroom, the teacher sessile, but what about this fossil which are so old, you can say, actually, no is three thousand years, but would make take a position as the set claims, but the age of the fossil. It is motion that one is you permission to believe which to be anywhere and plausible way of thinking about the into action of reason to any case. You want to believe, and you still have to latch onto some veasley full. It is just gonna guess give that explanation much easier house that you would if you didn't want to believe that. So interesting. And I think I agree with you. It's worth noting just to continue on the topic of pseudoscience moment longer because I really do think it's a very, very useful point of access to politics. Like if you think about, for example, why did Trump start tweeting in two thousand fourteen or fifteen about vaccinations autism? There's nothing all via sleekly useful for his political ends about the anti vaccination, except that it's a form of sowing distrust by. Right. And so does science is perhaps far more relevant than it seems at first glance..

"Bamboo, the panda, fresh greens for the herb of ores meat for the carnivores. How did the animals deal with muscle atrophy after so many months in confinement? Do they ever get cramps? I can't even imagine the smell all these beasts essentially existing in the world's largest locker room and allowing they had plenty of food. How did eight people shovel thousands of tonnes of animal waste out of a state. AM sized boat with only one window. How did they do it outside the window? How is life surviving the fresh rain waters mixing with the salt ocean water to make brackish mixture toxic to both the fresh and the ocean. Water animals did this sharks and the trout in the Puffer fish and the Marlins just hold their watery breath for over a year. Why would God have no ascend out doves to find land when God and no one had been on speaking terms only a few versus before remember God was telling him exact cubits and construction methods. And now he has no ascending dove out to do recon defined land. And since the ark has no motor, no sale and no rudder, it would've made absolutely no difference that could have been thirty feet from land and they would have simply helplessly drifted right on by when the boat finally did doc, what did everybody eat the animals and plants it already been killed in the flood destroyed. I didn't see anything in Genesis about Noah and manna. Know these details are not imp-. Portent my friends. What is important is that no way and his family, then repopulated the earth over five thousand ethnic groups in about four thousand years. And then no, the one righteous man worth saving. Spent the latter part of his life naked and drunk, and his story would be documented in an anonymously written book. And in modern times would be memorialized by Ken ham who somehow sold the state of Kentucky on the construction of a one hundred million dollar paperweight. It would be a monument, my friends to both the church and the state that rolling sound. You hear being our founding fathers in the authors of the constitution rolling in their graves Lord. Bevin would smile approvingly from his mansion chamber, and y'all way still surprised that his genocidal flood didn't really solve the problem of human imperfection that ended up totally sung for Jesus who as God within have to impregnate a teenager with himself for yet another biblical death. I am here today, my friends because I was. Enoch Trinadad with the actual verses of this story, I was taught warned was told every freaking day that I was born broken and I needed to be fixed. I was trained to distrust science and scientists. I've protected my own religious belief, a working to the beliefs and opinions of others. Like Ken HAM's Arkan counter. I was a monument to bad information, bad thinking, bad ideas, and now that I am free of all that nonsense, I am here because I think Kentucky, I think my country and humanity deserves so much more so much better than the awful fairy tale of global genocide the claim that you and I deserved it and the misuse of taxpayer money to sell lies to children. Ken ham, the evidence is in it is overwhelming. You built a monument to an event that never happened promoting religion, long debunked selling a lie that more and more people every minute of every day are rejecting. We are here. You and. A higher here today to remind people that it is nonsense that nobody needs an arc and that the real world story of humanism and humanity remains the one worth telling. Thank you all..

"Don't belong industry to piss demolish session anyway, the videos out there. You can find it on my YouTube channel, but just an interesting anecdote. I thought I'd share with you. I was at the Arken counter protest early this month and we were out there and beautiful day. We were protesting this, you know, hundred million dollar joke punchline in Williamstown, Kentucky. So all of a sudden we realized there are some religious people. Now, I don't know if they were sent by Ken ham or not. If they were from the arkan- counter or not. I suspect. This guy was, I know some were his name was ironically Seth. He was standing in a group of people and he was talking about his faith in Jesus Christ. And there were three eighth Theus Tsur engaging him. Everything was polite. Everybody was talking and listening and turn, and and so I just sat around in the sort of periphery and waited for a natural break in the conversation. I didn't want to jump into somebody else's engagement, but it was talking about, you know, his belief in his faith and his belief in his faith. It was all tied into Jesus. He was obviously a bible, believing literal bible, believing Christian. And so he was asked if you challenging questions and the group and a natural break in the conversation finally occurred. And I jumped in and try to little street at Pistole Malla Joma guy. Right? Which was essentially using questions to determine how arrived at his belief in how he determines what is true. And so I think we were talking a little bit about the authorship of scripture and how do you know that the stories about Jesus were true since he was staking his faith upon them who wrote the gospels and why don't the gospels agree?.
