Creationist Ken Ham: Richard Dawkins isn’t an atheist because the Bible says so

Creationist Ken Ham says evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins isn’t really an atheist — because atheists don’t really exist.

Ham, the founder of Answers in Genesis, said the Bible taught that everyone was endowed with an innate knowledge of God, even if they choose to deny it. In his blog post he promoted Monday on Facebook, he wrote that Dawkins had “made an interesting admission” during a 2013 appearance on The Daily Show.

“I don’t know what happens to us” when we die, Dawkins told host Jon Stewart, “but I know that our consciousness is wrapped up in our brains. I know that our brains rot.”

Ham, whose group operates the Creation Museum in Kentucky and is building a Noah’s Ark-inspired theme park, concluded that Dawkins couldn’t “prove his atheism”

“So Richard Dawkins, a man who is so certain there is no God, is not totally certain about what’s going to happen to him when he dies,” he wrote. “And yet he speaks with certainty as he tries to indoctrinate people to believe in his religion of atheism!”

Ham added that the “Bible clearly teaches there are no atheists,” citing Romans 1:18–21.

“God’s Word clearly states that He has put the knowledge of God within each of us. We all know there is a God. There are no atheists!”

Ham isn’t the only figure to dispute the existence of atheists. Reality TV star Si Robertson, who is featured on the show Duck Dynasty, recently claimed atheists don’t exist because “our calendars are based on Jesus Christ.”

Donald Trump’s worst fear has come true — it is why he’s been spiraling out of control since the election: report

Published

Writing in the New York Times this Thursday, Dan Barry says that in the wake of the 2020 election, President Trump has run head-first into the epithet he's long used to slander others.

"Loser."

Speaking to the Times, former Trump business associate Jack O’Donnell pointed out that the first thing Trump calls someone who's wronged him is "loser."

“That’s his main attack word. The worst thing in his world would be to be a loser. To avoid being called a loser, he will do or say anything," he said.

In reality, Trump has been a loser many times over. "In fact, his greatest success flowed not from real estate but from the creation of a popular alternate-reality television persona — Donald Trump, master of the boardroom — that he ultimately rode to the White House," Barry writes. "But his famous aversion to the label of loser has now reached its apotheosis."

People would come out on their porches in the evening to rally for the health workers — to say, collectively for just a minute or two, that we were thankful for the effort.That spirit seems years away to Anna Halloran.“There’s a large segment of the population that hates the health department right now, that thinks we’re lying,” says Halloran, a communicable disease epidemiologist in Spokane, Washington.Halloran works for the Spokane Regional Health District, which recently fired its top health officer, Dr. Bob Lutz. He was sort of the Dr. Anthony Fauci... (more…)
