Ken Ham is an Australian-born Biblical creationist best known as the founder and president of Answers In Genesis (AIG), a Christian apologetics organisation that promotes a literal interpretation of the Bible and defends a young Earth view of creation.
He argues that everything was created in six days, approximately 6000 years ago.
Well, actually, he doesn’t argue that.
It’s what the Bible says (in Genesis).
Ken advocates for a scientific explanation for the origins of life based on a Biblical worldview.
In addition to his work with AIG, he was also instrumental in the establishment of the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter (a life-size replica of Noah’s Ark).
Ken joined me for a conversation about Biblical creation and why it matters from a scientific, historical and cultural perspective.
He also made a valid point about how much of modern Christianity, especially in the West, has become too diluted and inclusive (which are points echoed by Doug Wilson and Samuel Sey).
