We know if we stand on a corner in Spanish Harlem and yell "MARIA!!!" only one female will answer.

Well........he's right. We, like our great ape and monkey cousins, are descended from earlier hominids. All kinda depends on what anyone means by "ape-like." This being true, if we take God's Word as the starting point, we got nothing because we don't have God's word. If we use the bible...we still got nothing as God is not described. He could be pure Ape for all we know.

Now.....if you take 16th Century religious art......we got a Charlton Heston looking dude. Still kinda ape looking...depending on your esthetics.

By `God`, I suppose Ken Ham means `The Celestial Peeping Tom`.
How do you know Mr Ham, you weren`t there!

If anyone wants to know about the way Ken Ham and his followers think, please go to youtube and search for `Bill Nye vs Ken Ham, the Ark Encounter`. You will be amazed at the level of ignorance portrayed by a supposedly educated man (Mr Ham). You cannot teach logical absolutes(from the religious perspective) by using faith. It just doesn`t work. It can`t work.

Well first problem with Mr. Ham's statement is "God's Word"

Firstly, prove there is a god;
Secondly, if you can prove the above, then prove god said what Mr. Ham claims.

If you can't prove the first point, then the argument is all over. So it is all over.

There's also Paulogia's youtube channel where he responds to Ken Ham's weekly podcasts with his own his videos called Ham & AiG News, like this example:
