What's worse, not only are they atheist, but they are prolly Liberals as well, and don't own one gun between them. Oh, the humanity!
Hey! I resent that remark.

I'm a liberal, and I'm armed to the teeth!  ;D

There are a few threads here about the Ark Encounter boondoggle/theme park, but this is the first that came up in a search and the mountebank Ham's response ties into the title, so . . .

"Ken Ham Is Furious That Newspapers Accurately Report Ark Encounter’s Attendance" | Patheos

Quote
As we learned a week ago, Ark Encounter is not doing as well as it was a year ago. Not only is attendance declining each month compared to the same time last year, it’s declining at a greater rate each month.

Ken Ham never wants to admit this. So like Donald Trump, whenever the media reports the facts, he responds by calling them “fake”… as if they made up the numbers Ark Encounter literally submitted to the city. Ham’s argument is that attendance is up… but the media only covers paid tickets, not the people who walk through the doors, many of whom get in for free because they’re kids or people with lifetime passes.

The Lexington Herald-Leader recently reported on all of this — backing up its claims with numbers — but Ham isn’t having any of it. He cares about math as much as he cares about science. So he’s lashing out with an article all about “media bias.”

My favorite response may be this one where he just tries proving his point by breaking out the A-word:

Quote
The ultimate source for this article is not AiG but local atheists who have continued to voice their disdain/hatred against the Ark (and Creation Museum) and do all they can to spread misinformation in their failed attempts to undermine the phenomenal success of the Ark and Museum attractions.

[Continues . . .]
"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken

 If you want to find a liar find a theist.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Is Ken Ham having a go at trying to start some Fake News in hope that it will go viral?

I would likle to express my gratitude to the people of the USA for providing a place for little Kenny to prove how utterly stupid he is.  Especially because that place is not Australia.  Please keep him, we don't want him back!

You're welcome -- he does rather blend in here.  (I wonder if cannibals would take him if we buttered him and put parsley behind his ears?)
