Evangelical Australian young-Earth creationist, Ken Ham, is taking his tour around various churches in Northern Ireland next week. Ham, along with others, set up the Creation Science Foundation in Queensland, though this sounds like a bit of an oxymoron to me. He later founded the Creation Science Ministries, later renamed Answers in Genesis. The Christian ministry specialises in young Earth creationism and promotes the belief that the initial chapters in Genesis should be taken as literally true and historically accurate.
On his website Ken answers many of the tough questions such as ‘What really happened to the dinosaurs?‘ and ‘was there really a Noah’s Ark and Flood?’. He refers to the idea of “millions of years” as a “disease”, answers the age-old question ‘why did God create us’, ‘why we don’t all have the same skin colour?’ And many others. He also includes many pictures and charts to aid his “scientific*” explanations. *Bible
