Is Ken Ham a Wackaloon?

Ken Ham appears to be unhappy that P. Z. Myers called him a wackaloon, but clueless as to why.

Ken, partly it’s because you don’t allow comments at your blog. Open your blog up for discussion, you might learn something.

It ain’t that the majority is silent, it’s that the wackaloons are deaf. Ham seems confused. He thinks Myers is worried that God exists. Myers is worried that Ham is a wackaloon. Those two statements are quite different, and mutually exclusive independent. God’s existence doesn’t change the fact that Ham is a wackaloon, and God’s existence is not conditional on Ham’s being a wackaloon.

Ham is a creationist who spends millions of dollars annually lying to children. Ham, it would appear to a rational person, does not believe God exists, and so thinks there is no penalty to be paid for doing this. “Wackaloon” might be a gentle term.

But, should creationists be allowed into the Pentagon without a full body search? People who don’t think radiation works in predictable ways should be kept far, far away from nuclear weapons and those who play a role in triggering them, I think. What if they required a sanity test before allowing people into the Pentagon?

    I think you mean “independent”, not “mutually exclusive”.

    Hey, Ed, can I do a bit of blog-whoring here? I have a post on the subject and PZ’s thesaurus of insults at Bad PZ.

    Then it would be a big, empty building.

    Next question?
