I am writing in response to the article about Ken Ham on August 15. He was invited to speak in a number of churches in order to share his beliefs and I attended one of the services.
Speaking to a predominantly Christian audience, his aim was to educate Christians about how they can defend their beliefs against those who ridicule them. The article suggested that the speed of delivery deliberately 'gave listeners no time to think for themselves'.
He did speak very quickly as he only had a short time to cover huge issues. However, Mr Ham made constant reference to the need for Christians to be thinking about these issues and encouraged the audience to visit his website, www.answersingenesis.org in order to read online articles.
He also had a large selection of low-cost books for sale which explained the issues in a lot more depth.
