Does Ken Ham Have a Brain: And Other Easy Questions About Creationism Sep 20, 2006
Let's imagine for a moment that the special creation hallucination peddled by this book is absolutely correct, and that the author's credulous logic is equally impeccable:
Adam and Eve didn't have belly buttons - after all they were created as fully formed thirty-somethings. They were never nourished in utero via a placenta and umbilical cord. Since Adam was never an embryo or fetus he didn't have nipples either. During development all mammalian embryos follow a female template until about six weeks, when the male sex chromosome kicks in for a male embryo. The embryo then begins to develop all of its male characteristics. Consequently men are left with nipples and some breast tissue. But Adam was never an embryo and God wouldn't mark him with any feature that would imply that he ever had been - hence no nipples. Note to Ham: Please update the exhibits at your insane and inane "Creation Museum and Family Discovery Center" accordingly. And while you're at it loose the silly St. George slays the dragon sculpture. It's right next to the dinosaur with a saddle!
Adam also named all the animals on the sixth day of creation, and he remembered all of their names. How did he accomplish this mnemonic feat? Simple really - Adam had a perfect brain uncorrupted by sin and the curse. He was smarter than Witten, Hawking, Sagan, Feynman, Einstein, Darwin, Newton, or Galileo. Over a lifetime of 930 years a super intellect like this should have realized astonishing philosophical and scientific insights, along with numerous technological advances - but according to Genesis Adam wasted a millennium and left behind a course and brutish Earth where unabated superstition clouded minds, religious gibberish and priestly oppression reigned supreme, slavery flourished, shamans cast out demons, parents stoned sons or daughters, and astronomical phenomena like solar eclipses and changing seasons remained awesome mysteries.
Time to switch back to reality mode - Ham can't even ask the right questions or separate sense from nonsense. Absurdities abound when erroneous presuppositions based on the bipolar conceits of biblical literalism and inerrancy are used to look for "scientific" or "historical" answers in Genesis. Mythical symbolism and allegory encode a different worldview. Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof and Ham utterly fails to persuade.
Books like "Did Adam Have a Belly Button? And Other Tough Questions About the Bible" pop up whenever Ken Ham has access to crayons and paper. Also avoid "Did Eve Really Have an Extra Rib? And Other Tough Questions About the Bible" (reviewed separately). If you like the tough questions genre read "Letter to a Christian Nation" by Sam Harris (available on this site.com).
Lots of fun!!! Feb 26, 2006
Great book! We had hours of fun going through this book. So many great answers. The author is a wealth of trust worthy information and is fastly becoming one of my favorites! If like this book you need to get the sequel - Did Eve Realy have an Extra Rib? Both books are a Good sourse of information for that home bible study for the person who always seems to ask those hard questions.
One of the best books ever written! Jun 11, 2003
Ken Ham keeps amazing me with his ability to take his extensive knowledge of scripture and science, and show how they coexist.
