The absurdities of Ken Ham and “Creation Science.”
How can a population of organisms reproduce and over time become several hundred species each of which has its own menagerie of characteristics? This is a fundamental evolutionary question for which many different mechanisms have been proposed as solutions over the past 200 years. With AiG’s Ark Encounter nearing completion Ken Ham is about to put on display his – and AiGs – own understanding of how thousands of species found their origins in a small number of common ancestors. In other words, he will be more visibly promoting his alternative view of the origin of species that he has been promoting for some time. However, most lay Christians and the general public are likely not familiar with this view I have called radical accelerated diversification. Unfortunately for Ken Ham, the very Ark that he will be promoting as a Christian theme attraction presents the most compelling observational evidence that undermines his own interpretation of the origins of species.
