Ken Ham: Creationist Designs a Bicycle!

Prepare to be amazed, dear reader, at this astounding news from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. His post today is Creation Scientist Designs Olympic Bicycle. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:

If you followed the Olympic games that recently took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, you may know that the British cycling team put on a grand performance. They won eleven Olympic medals, including six gold, four silver, and a bronze. In contrast, no other nation at the Rio games won more than two medals in track cycling. Well, what you may not know is that a creation scientist was involved in designing their bicycles!

[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] He must have used the blueprints encoded in Genesis. More from Hambo:

Professor Stuart Burgess is a professor of engineering design at the University of Bristol in the United Kingdom. He has an impressive resume! He’s won multiple awards for his engineering design work, holds seven patents, and even designed parts of rockets and spacecraft for the European Space Agency. And he’s a biblical creationist who has spoken for Answers in Genesis both here in America and across the UK.

We’re not surprised. According to the Salem hypothesis, engineering types — and that often includes computer scientists — have a tendency toward the creationist viewpoint. Let’s read on:

Secularists like Bill Nye (TV’s “The Science Guy”) often say that creationists can’t be real scientists. Well, Professor Burgess is definitely both a real scientist and a creationist!

Yeah, okay. Hambo continues:

It’s ridiculous to claim that creationists can’t be scientists or engineers. Modern science was largely founded on the work of creation scientists! Secularists who make such claims about creationists conveniently forget the history of science.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We debunked that in Did Science Originate with Creationists?

The rest is just a promotion for some event in the UK where Burgess will be speaking. If you care, click over to Hambo’s post and check it out. We’re done here.

  1. From the description, it sounds like the good professor is an engineer, not a scientist. He’s no doubt good at it, but there is no “creation science”, to use an oxymoron, involved.

  2. It is far more likely that creationists tend to become engineers than engineers tend to become creationists.

  3. So some scientists are creationists? That no more proves creationism deserves to be considered science than the fact that Isaac Newton cast horoscopes for money proved that astrology did.

    and as noted above, Professor Burgess appears to be more an engineer than a scientist. Even granting him scientist status, though, it doesn’t seem that his expertise is in any field relevant to the creation/evolution conflict.

  4. Why do you suppose ol Hambone doesn’t mention the contribution the holy bubble made to Burgess’s designs? My guess is because it (and creationism) had no influence on his ideas for bike design.

  5. The earth and the whole universe is 6,000 years old and was created in 6 days because, …, bicycles? Why would they talk about this stuff if they had real evidence to back up their extraordinary claims?

  6. What a complete load of bollocks as the English say. He helped design some TEST EQUIPMENT – not the bikes themselves. Ham is clueless as to what design is.

    Having chosen to go to school for engineering, I will say my verbalized choice of mechanical engineering was because it was ‘real’, it confirmed what I observed in the world around me. i.e. it confirmed my intuition. So it must be with Burgess.

  8. Considering Professor Burgess is from the U.K. he has an impressive C.V. not an impressive resume.
