As first reported by PZ Myers, Ken Ham was invited to speak at a Pentagon prayer breakfast.


Now, besides the obvious problem of a gov't institution supporting a religion, it's Ken bloody Ham!

Maybe they did it just for the promise of killer promotional material? "Come join us for Ham and eggs."

No, but seriously, this is scary shit. Anyone who thinks the forces of rationality are winning in the world needs to reconsider. We are led by witch doctors who consult oracles informed by entrails and incense. Times are bleak.

We never had any sort of "prayer breakfast" crap I was in the service. But the Pentagon is as big a pack of liars as AiG, so it's birds of a feather, I suppose.

I wonder when they'll start teaching the Fable of Genesis along with the UCMJ in boot camp.....

Sorry, couldn't resist.

Would you eat them with a putz? Or with someone who's really nuts? Could you, would you with a fool? From the shallows of the pool?


Uncertainty may make you uncomfortable. Certainty makes you ridiculous.

Why not question something for a change?

And Ken Ham gets all upset, displays his contempt while calling for tolerance, and is, in general, an idiot.

PZ has a few choice words in reply.

I caught that and added a mild comment of my own.

An excellent vocabulary, has our Dr. Myers!
