State of the nation 2

Following President Obama’s annual “State of the Union” address, biblical apologist Ken Ham will soon offer his “State of the Nation” speech, highlighting how far the U.S. has wandered from its moral foundations, and calling Christians back to their biblical roots.

...

“Many Christians have been duped into accepting a false idea: that there is a ‘neutral’ position they can take in regard to social issues,” Ham said. “Some Christians even accept the myth that the U.S. Constitution declares that there should be a separation of church and state. They are hesitant to inject Christian beliefs into politics. “God’s Word, however, makes it clear that there is no neutral position,” Ham continued. “God’s people need to unashamedly and uncompromisingly stand on the Bible and its absolute standards. We need to proclaim a Christian worldview and the Gospel, all the while giving answers for the hope we have.”

...

“We need to learn what we can do to call America back to the only sure foundation—biblical authority,” Ham explained. “We need to stand unashamedly upon God’s Word in the face of a skeptical society and find out how we can do more than just watch our country slip into a moral quagmire.”
Fair use claimed
A video of the "speech" is at the linked site.

AiG on Facebook[edit]

http://www.facebook.com/AnswersInGenesis Do I want to subscribe to this or not? On the one hand, it lets me keep tabs on it; you can't just say creationism is silly without listening to what the latest claims are. But on the other hand, I imagine it would kill my sanity pretty quick. Scarlet A.pngnarchist 16:57, 28 July 2010 (UTC)

Dinosaur nonsense on this weird website!!![edit]

In the kids section of Answers in Genesis, it actually says there were only 50 kinds of dinosaurs!Just tell me, exactly how insane are these people?Thedoctor80 (talk) 19:45, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

You might not have the same understanding of the word "kind" as them. WẽãšẽĩõĩďWeaselly.jpgMethinks it is a Weasel 19:52, 21 October 2010 (UTC)

PLUS, HERE IS STUPID A QUOTE: It’s important to remember that these scientists made conclusions about the fossilized footprints based upon their evolutionary beliefs. One scientist even admitted that it was hard to draw conclusions about animals based entirely on their footprints.Creation scientists look at the same fossilized footprints and make vastly different conclusions based upon the Bible, which we know to be true.

The witness of Genesis[edit]

Hi, I'm the kind of person who sees what is missing in arguments. Here's a few observations if anyone is interested. Feel free to use these observations as your own if you like them.


I'm quoting from here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Genesis_creation_narrative (can someone fix this reference for me?)


1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Ok, who is narrating this story, God? If so, does he normally refer to himself in the third person?

What was God doing before the beginning? When was time created? Where did God come from? Why did God create heaven and earth, was he bored?

1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 1:4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

Ok, God has a voice that he uses to command whatever to make stuff for him, and eyes for some reason since he apparently needs light to see in the dark even though he is God and doesn't need them.

And again, who is watching all this, his wife?

It goes on and on, God said, did, made, saw, etc., until...

1:26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.

Now, who is this "us" he is talking to? So God looks like a man? Great, God has a penis.

1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.

Yeah, yeah, God created a woman to be Adam's friend, cuz God's not a queer, right?

1:28 And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth.

Basically, God says, "Adam and Eve, if you want more people, make them yourself". I guess God's getting tired of creating, so he gave his people genitalia so he could watch them make more people for him.

Let's see, Adam and Eve had three kids, and two of them had kids. Where did those kids mothers come from if there were only four people on earth?

Ok, I'm tired of this fairy tale. Somebody please take over.

Cain married his sister. There were no genetics problems at the time.208.114.32.160 (talk) 18:41, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
Why were there no genetic problems? I've often heard creationists say incest wasn't a problem just after the fall but they never come up with a reason why. Christopher (talk) 20:35, 11 May 2017 (UTC)
This is sort of a “better late than never” answer to @Christopher, but I think the reason behind the fundie “incest, no problemo” line (apart from the obvious need to ignore that bible stories are largely non-factual, of course) is the same that they use to prop up claims for the fantastically long biblical lifespans. If I recall correctly, (some) fundies claim that, prior to original sin, genes were “perfect”, hence there were no diseases and no genetic mutations/ailments and I think I’ve also heard this magical pseudo explanation of “perfection” used as the reason why carnivores ate plants in the Garden of Eden (due to some fundies’ need to harmonise the description of Eden as a place without death).

The photo of Adam and Eve's variable-ethnicity children is ridiculous... why?[edit]

I am by no means a YEC, but the article doesn't really explain what's so bizzare about that photo. I can't tell what's wrong with it. Skadooshbag (talk) 22:31, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Satire[edit]

Why don't we joke about AiG's competition with CiM?

Answers in Genesis does what Creation MinistriDON'T! 170.81.7.69 (talk) 22:26, 26 August 2018 (UTC)

List of people attacked by AiG[edit]

Ken Ham is not just at war with other religions, he’s at war with his own.

I have compiled a list of well-known Christian leaders who have been attacked by AiG with direct links to the AiG website. I call it the Wall of Honor.

It includes virtually everybody who’s anybody.

I do not wish to intrude or violate COI rules since it is on my website and nowhere else.

Anyone care one way or the other?
