Ken Ham going after "compromisers", but hard!

Postby the_ignored » Sat Nov 18, 2017 10:03 pm

Review of Ken's book Already Compromised. He even directly goes after "intelligent design" bullshit artists, though of course for the wrong reasons.

In Already Compromised, Ham saves the bulk of his direct attacks on Christian academics and Bible scholar for his “Appendix A.” Throughout most of the book, his condemnation of Christian colleges and professors stays at a rather general level—in “Appendix A,” he gets very specific, and proceeds to call out and condemn a number of academics: William Dembski, Karl Giberson, Darrel Falk, William Lane Craig, John Walton, a number of professors from Calvin College (including Davis Young, Howard Van Til, Deborah Haarsma, Loren Haarsma, and Daniel Harlow), as well as John Collins and Bruce Waltke.

Ham’s reaction is predictable: “When a Christian reads [Dembski’s explanation], the average believer responds with, ‘What? This is bizarre!’ But it is more than bizarre—it undermines the authority of the Word of God. But please keep in mind…that I am not questioning anyone’s Christian faith” (174). He also calls out Dembski for essentially saying that he’d accept YECism in a heartbeat, but the fact is that there is just too much strong scientific evidence against it. Ham responds with, “It really comes down to the fact that Dr. Dembski accepts the fallible secular dating methods (based on numerous fallible assumptions) and uses their results to trump the Word of God!” (174).

I'm always a bit surprised that Ham is not a flat Earther too.
