And it's fellow young-earthrs who "expelled" him. As you might suspect, PZ Myers has the details.



This wasn't a dictate from irate scientists or atheists, either: this decree has come down from his own people, fellow creationists who also believe the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that God shuffled every kind of animal on the planet into a big boat before drowning everyone else. Here's the official letter they sent to AiG:


Read on, it'll cheer you up.

Why did they do that? Because Ham was an intolerant prat and guess what? Some people don't like that.

The Board believes that Ken's public criticism of the convention itself and other speakers at our convention require him to surrender the spiritual privilege of addressing our homeschool audience.Please know that our Board is 100% young earth and we largely share AIG's perspective from a scientific standpoint. That is why Ken was originally invited and treated so graciously and extremely generously in Memphis and Greenville (far beyond what we do for other speakers or their ministries). Our expression of sacrifice and extraordinary kindness towards Ken and AIG has been returned to us and our attendees with Ken publicly attacking our conventions and other speakers. Our Board believes Ken's comments to be unnecessary, ungodly, and mean-spirited statements that are divisive at best and defamatory at worst.

History shows a trend with religious fanatics, if they don't have an out-group to attack, they will start in on themselves.

That is comedy gold though, poor Ken Ham... haha!
