Australian Journalist Asks About Ken Ham: ‘How Did He Get Out?’ February 6, 2014

Australian Journalist Asks About Ken Ham: ‘How Did He Get Out?’

A few days ago, we saw the Secular Coalition of Australia (SECOA) issue a tongue-in-cheek press release apologizing for Ken Ham in advance of his debate against Bill Nye the Science Guy.

But I don’t think John Birmingham, writing on his Brisbane Times blog, is joking in his apology to the state of Kentucky titled “For God’s sake, how did he get out?“:

Well this is embarrassing. A Queensland man has travelled to Kentucky, of fried chicken and fundamentalist fame, and made them look like Stockholm at the Nobel Prize after-party.

I’m sorry, Kentucky, that Ken Ham had nothing better to offer in argument than biblical passages and a weird new division between ‘observational science’ and ‘historical science’ which seemed to be based on a deeper categorical separation between ‘confusing thinky stuff often involving big sums’ and ‘awesome bible stories which would be even more awesome with a hard-rockin’ but not too hard Christian rock soundtrack.’

I promise you, Kentucky, this will not happen again.

Damn right it won’t. Or else I’m going to figure out a way to ship all of Texas to Queensland.
