Ken Ham: The Cause and Cure of Racism

You don’t want to miss the latest from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. His new post is titled What “Black and White” Twins Teach Us About Supposed “Race”. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:

Several years ago I wrote an article for our Answers magazine titled “It’s Not Just Black & White.” This article looked at several examples of what are referred to as “black and white” twins — fraternal twins where one is dark skinned with black hair and the other is light skinned with fair hair.

[…]

The Biggs twins, Millie and Marcia, are in the news again because they are entering middle school in Birmingham, England. Their mother, who is light skinned (their father is dark skinned), had to explain to school staff that the girls are indeed twins. Reportedly, “some of their teachers were shocked, and strangers are often baffled when they find out the girls are related, much less twins.”

Okay, but what does that have to do with evolution and creationism? Hambo says:

Why are people so shocked by these twins? Because they’ve been indoctrinated with the idea of supposed “races,” an idea fueled today by evolutionary thinking.

BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Right. Before Darwin and his abominable theory, no one ever even thought about race. All humans, everywhere, lived in perfect harmony. Then he says:

Because all humans are descended from Adam and Eve, we’re all one race, or “one blood” as the Apostle Paul puts it in [scripture reference]. This is confirmed by observational science — humans are one species, Homo sapiens sapiens, and the supposed “racial” differences only account for .012% of the differences between humans.

Back in the days when everyone believed in the bible, no one even noticed racial differences. Hambo tells us:

The reason for the slight differences, such as skin tone and eye shape, between people groups is primarily because of the event at the Tower of Babel [scripture reference]. This division of languages broke up the human gene pool and isolated groups from one another. Certain genetic variations became prominent in different groups. … There’s just one race — the human race. We look different because of what happened at the Tower of Babel.

It would probably shock ol’ Hambo to learn that (except for the Tower of Babel stuff), that was also Darwin’s view. In Racism, Eugenics, and Darwin, we quoted his book The Descent of Man, Chapter 21 – General Summary and Conclusion, where he says:

Through the means just specified, aided perhaps by others as yet undiscovered, man has been raised to his present state. But since he attained to the rank of manhood, he has diverged into distinct races, or as they may be more fitly called, sub-species. Some of these, such as the Negro and European, are so distinct that, if specimens had been brought to a naturalist without any further information, they would undoubtedly have been considered by him as good and true species. Nevertheless all the races agree in so many unimportant details of structure and in so many mental peculiarities that these can be accounted for only by inheritance from a common progenitor; and a progenitor thus characterised would probably deserve to rank as man.

Hambo continues:

There’s only one solution to racism — a change of heart so people will build their thinking on God’s Word and believe the true history of the world. Racism, as well as other social issues such as gay “marriage,” transgenderism, and abortion, are all moral issues that are symptoms of a foundational issue — rejection of God’s Word. America’s racism issues will not be solved until hearts and minds are committed to the true history in God’s Word and the salvation message.

There can be no doubt, dear reader. Hambo has the answers. You must turn away from Darwin and all the evil that he has brought into the world.

  1. True to form Ham-bone has no idea of science and shows his stoopidity in high form! But even worse is his belief that other people are so stoopid that they believe his words, he is an insult to thinking people everywhere!

  2. Flailing.

    Ken Ham is flailing to retain some vestige of relevance in the 21st century.

  3. Michael Fugate

    Wikipedia on George Wallace…
    At graduation exercises in the spring of 1964 at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina, Wallace received an honorary doctorate. At the commencement, Bob Jones Jr., read the following citation as a tribute to Wallace:

    “Men who have fought for truth and righteousness have always been slandered, maligned, and misrepresented. The American press in its attacks upon Governor Wallace has demonstrated that it is no longer free, American, or honest. But you, Mr. Governor, have demonstrated not only by the overwhelming victories in the recent elections in your own state of Alabama but also in the showing which you have made in states long dominated by cheap demagogues and selfish radicals that there is still in America love for freedom, hard common sense, and at least some hope for the preservation of our constitutional liberties.

    Just sayin’.

  4. And of course, the only way people can truly understand the “true history of the world” is to pony up $40 for his Ark Encounter Church^H^H^H^H^H^HPark, or the Creation Museum, where he tells you why the Bible is the only authority you need (except for needing his displays to convince you of that).

  5. Now we are told that Noah`s son, Ham, was the first of the black race, but the Xian`s guide to insanity fails to mention how one of the most populous races, the Asiatic, including Chinese, ever kicked off. Maybe the Asian ancestor was on the other boat?

  6. “Back in the days when everyone believed in the bible, no one even noticed racial differences.”

    Yes and that very clearly explains why those bible thumping states in the Southern US considered black slaves to only be 2/3rd of a white person, but without any voting privileges or freedom. Oops. And then there are the Mormons who use the alleged curse of Ham to explain why blacks were inferior. Oops again. Why was the biblical god always telling the ancient Hebrews that they could kill or enslave non-Hebrews? Another mystery.
