Why Are Creationists So Dishonest?
Creationists have a small set of silly objections to evolution. No matter many times evolutionists debunk them, creationists keep presenting them yet again to debunk evolution e.g. If humans evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys? Even if the objection has been thoroughly explained and debunked a hundred times, the creationist pretends he has never heard it. Why are they so dishonest?

- They have no valid arguments. All they can use are bogus arguments.
- But that implies they know evolution is valid and creationism is wrong. Why do they keep defending creationism? They are under the delusion Christianity makes people behave. They fear if creationism were debunked, people would run about murdering and raping. So they feel the necessity to defend it with every dirty trick imaginable.
- Some people like Ken Ham make a living from selling people on creationism, theme parks, books, movies, lectures… Their income depends on debunking evolution, by hook or by crook. They need legitimacy and visitors who are Christian but not creationists. They have done a fair bit of research to put up a sophisticated defence of creationism. In that research, they can’t help but discover creationism is a crock. But of course that of course does not stop them from defending creationism with lies.
