This is Ken Ham, the owner of Answers In Genesis and the unintentionally hilarious Creation Museum.

He’s being slightly disingenuous here, because his own site reveals his actual approach to astronomy: “By definition, no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the scriptural record.”

What he means, therefore, is: “Nothing in my religion contradicts a 6,000-year-old Earth.” And if he had just said that, I wouldn’t be writing this blog post.
