I copy and pasted this from Huffington post.
Listen, I'm the guy who forever wants to "live and let live", as far as theist and atheist are concerned, but damn if guys like Hamm don't make that difficult. Listening to his bullshit is difficult. Imagine believing his bullshit.
Guy at work, pastor at a church, was listening in on a conversation I was having. Someone had asked the age of the planet to which i immediately answered, "4.5 billion years old". He quickly piped in and said, "that's crap. The earth is 10,000 years old. The science in the bible saids so. All you have to do is read the bible, a historical and scientific book if you look for it." So I asked "what about the dinosaurs". His response? "they couldn't fit into the ark". What about carbon dating? "That's crap that has been told by lying scientist to confuse us"... At about this point I told him "conversation over".
Here is Hamm in all his glory. Hate to be a hater but "god damn kook!":
Creationist Ken Ham, who recently debated Bill Nye the Science Guy over the origins of t..., is calling for an end to the search for extraterrestrial life because aliens probably don't exist -- and if they do, they're going to Hell anyway.
"You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe," Ham wrote on his blog on Sunday. "This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation."
The post was driven in part by NASA experts saying that they expect to find evidence of alien life within the next 20 years.
"It's highly improbable in the limitless vastness of the universe that we humans stand alone," NASA administrator Charles Bolden said last week.
But Ham, president and CEO of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., said we probably are alone. He wrote "earth was specially created," and the entire hunt for extraterrestrials is "really driven by man’s rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!"
If aliens do exist, however, Ham said even Jesus can't save them:
Jesus did not become the “GodKlingon” or the “GodMartian”! Only descendants of Adam can be saved. God’s Son remains the “Godman” as our Savior. In fact, the Bible makes it clear that we see the Father through the Son (and we see the Son through His Word). To suggest that aliens could respond to the gospel is just totally wrong.
I loved getting quarters under my pillow as a kid whenever I lost another tooth. Fairy tales can be supremely attractive even for some grownups. Mr. Ham is still a kid at heart I suppose.
The problem with aliens is that we don't know anything about them. How do we know that aliens are not vastly more devout about god and the bible than we are, and without all the hypocrisy or cherry-picking? They could show up, pull out their ray-guns, and unhesitatingly vaporize everyone who works on sunday or eats shellfish or wears poly-cotton blend. They could show up and institute biblical law where only the 10 commandments are enforced, and harshly; no such thing as justifiable homicide or self-defense, and don't even THINK about coveting your neighbor's wife's ass.
To ken ham I say: prove aliens are NOT more devout than humans.
