Crazy–Even for Ken Ham

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/07/21/creationist-ken-ham-calls-to-end-space-program-because-aliens-are-going-to-hell-anyway/#.U81rLCNLKuI.email
Spock, ET, Marvin the Martian, ALF, Mork, the Third Rock from the Sun group and many other lovable aliens are all going to hell, I guess. In the pictures I have seen of this guy, his hair is combed, and his shirt is buttoned up. He looks like he has bathed recently. How can that be? Who takes care of him? I would think that a guy this crazy would be bouncing off the walls of his rubber room. I think that this supports what I have long said. The chief danger of creationism, or any other such extreme nonsense, is that if you believe that, then you will believe anything (except the truth, of course). Further, as Voltaire observed long ago, anybody who can make you believe absurdities can also make you commit atrocities.

If aliens have souls, then there is no reason for them to be going to Hell - there may not have been a Fall from Grace on their worlds, and they may be paragons of virtue.

If they don't have souls, what bit of them goes to Hell anyway?

I suspect that there may be aliens sitting on other planets who'd find the existence of Ken Ham utterly implausible. Sadly for us, they'd be wrong.

And he hasn't read Ezekiel, where the space visitors are clearly described (allegedly). Anyway, I gather there's a move to put "religious icons" on the moon - why would that be, in not to either welcome them or to convert them as they fly in?

Ken Ham wrote:“You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. 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,”


Out of interest, does the bible actually say this?

If god can divinely inspire scribes here on earth, why couldn't he inspire intelligent organisms on other planets? Who is to say aliens don't have their own divinely inspired Christian narrative? I can just picture it:

"A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...."

Surely they can acknowledge the salvation of Jesus and be accepted into heaven too?

Surely the implication here is that all non-human life in the universe, including that on our own planet, is doomed to a lake of fire?

But if that were so then mankind would not be God's favorite little creation; they'd be the naughty kids sent to their room for spoiling their supper while the good little kids had fruit for dessert. What creationist will want that?

Just when you think the blithering idiocy can't get any more blitheringly idiotic, some slack-jawed fool of a cretinist opens their mouth and sets a new Guinness World Record for wet-brained imbecility. There are slime molds with higher IQs then Hambone.

This is why religion is such a festering boil on the face of humanity. It encourages its adherents to fabricate drivel like this. Worse still, you can imagine what would happen if we did discover other life forms on other planets. Wanktards like Ham and the creepy Dominionists would probably call for a "holy war" against them.

Trouble is, there are enough polydactylous inbreeds in the Bibble Belt to lap this up.

If aliens ever do get around to abducting a human, let's hope it's Ken Ham. That way they could conclude that life on this planet has not advanced beyond vegetation and therefore presents no threat to the aliens.
That credulity should be gross in proportion to the ignorance of the mind that it enslaves, is in strict consistency with the principle of human nature. - Percy Bysshe Shelley

Hence my use of the phease "It's petunias time again, folks" as an alternative to "oh no, not again". :mrgreen:
