Ken Ham Announces Plans to ‘Confront Racism’ With New Tower of Babel Exhibit

Tim Chaffey: “By eliminating our true history, evolutionists are left with a false view of humanity. Thus, they explain the so-called racial differences through the lens of a fundamentally racist philosophy.” - C.Leaders

Folly!

I can see how the Tower of Babel explains how we're different races and ethnicities, but I'm at a loss to consider how the exhibit will make the point that racism is wrong.

On the light side, the smart aleck in me (99.4% of me it seems sometimes) wonders whether AIG's next step is to have a "Harem of Ahasuerus" exhibit, complete with the world's largest collection of Orientalist art, to argue against polygamy and fornication.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

Well that would attract me!

Whether or not this is a great idea, "folly" seems a strong word for it. Ham has long focused on Gen 1-11 and this is simply more of that. This would be folly only if the rest of it is folly.

The point of racism being wrong is fairly easy to see. Babel reminds us that we all came a "common stock." The division over languages led to a division of the gene pool such that certain genetic characteristics (now things attributed to race) were lost from certain segments of the spread out population. Racism is wrong because they aren't different, they don't have a different heritage.

In the end, I am not a fan of Christian theme parks in general. I have been to both the creation museum and the ark, IMO, they are interesting and well-done but way too expensive. There is no return value for me. I think the commercialization of Christianity leaves a lot to be desired. But to include the tower of Babel in a discussion or presentation of Gen 1-11 is certainly reasonable.

Didn't building the first Tower in Babel end badly?

Yes, but why? (We don't have to guess. The Bible tells us.)
