What has the world come to? Next thing, he'll be disavowing the attack on Noah's Ark by fallen angel-stampeded T-rexes.

According to the article:

Maybe from the products you author and market to children, like Dinosaurs of Eden.

From that book, here’s an old-timey caravan through the desert, with a woman and child riding on a fancy saddled Gallimimus:

What's the problem here? Ken Ham both does and does not believe in saddled dinosaurs. Since when has a bit of cognitive dissonance ever been a problem for fundies?

:lol: that was hilarious, vms, thanks!

Ken Ham is not only becoming irrelevant, he has become a laughingstock.

1. Comfort is truth.

2. An assertion that you can comfortably make because it is well received by ignorant superstitionists is therefore true.

3. The same assertion, received unfavorably by educated, ethically concerned and sarcastic commenters, is embarrassing and therefore untrue. It follows that since a man ridden by the Holy Spirit will not lie, such an untrue assertion has never been made.

I think these three points illustrate the fundy's operational regard for the idea of truth and honesty. Read 1984.
