"Usually, even a non-Christian knows something about the earth, the heavens, and the
other elements of this world, about the motion and orbit of the stars and even their
size and relative positions, about the predictable eclipses of the sun and moon,
the cycles of the years and the seasons, about the kinds of animals, shrubs, stones,
and so forth, and this knowledge he holds to as being certain from reason and experience.
Now, it is a disgraceful and dangerous thing for an infidel to hear a Christian,
presumably giving the meaning of Holy Scripture, talking nonsense on these topics;
and we should take all means to prevent such an embarrassing situation, in which people
show up vast ignorance in a Christian and laugh it to scorn. The shame is not so much
that an ignorant individual is derided, but that people outside the household of faith
think our sacred writers held such opinions, and, to the great loss of those for whose
salvation we toil, the writers of our Scripture are criticized and rejected as unlearned men.
"If they find a Christian mistaken in a field which they themselves know well and hear him maintaining his foolish opinions about our books, how are they going to believe those books in matters concerning the resurrection of the dead, the hope of eternal life, and the kingdom of heaven, when they think their pages are full of falsehoods and on facts which they themselves have learnt from experience and the light of reason? Reckless and incompetent expounders of Holy Scripture bring untold trouble and sorrow on their wiser brethren when they are caught in one of their mischievous false opinions and are taken to task by those who are not bound by the authority of our sacred books. For then, to defend their utterly foolish and obviously untrue statements, they will try to call upon Holy Scripture for proof and even recite from memory many passages which they think support their position, although they understand neither what they say nor the things about which they make assertion."
St Augustine of Hippo (354 - 430 AD), Commentary on Genesis

Ken Ham's Creation "Museum"
Ken Ham has made a career out of spreading misinformation and lies about evolution and the age of the earth. His creation "museum", a monstrosity dedicated to nonsense, was built for an astonishing $27 million, donated by uneducated individuals who couldn't think of anything better to support. Really, the mind boggles at the minds of so many Americans (and not a few Britons) who still think that the world is only 6,000 years old and that a worldwide flood laid down the rocks. What then of ancient civilizations and cave paintings dating back to 25,000 BC? Or ice cores going back 420,000 years? Or varve formations at least a few million years old? Ken Ham and his ilk do not adequately account for any of this, instead asserting that all the dating methods are wrong and that there is a huge conspiracy on the part of scientists to keep the general public from believing in God. Nothing could be further from the truth. Find out more about Ham here and here.
