Evolving Thoughts

They're in the money

Jim Lippard shows what the primary focus is for the creationist organisations. Follow the money as Deep Throat said. Recently, Answers in Genesis split into two, an American site (which garners some $10mUS per annum! and pays it's "directors" accordingly) remains known as "Answers in Genesis" while the international version, which will occasionally criticise it's creationist colleagues unlike the US rump, will henceforth be known as "Creation Ministries International". Ironically, AiG is run by an Australian, from my current state Queensland, name of Ken Ham.

I'd love to know how much CMI brings in. Creationists often accuse "evolutionists" of raking in the money, but apart from a very few well-funded evolutionary biology departments, and Richard Dawkins' named Charles Simonyi chair at Oxford, I really can't think of any that even vaguely approach these sorts of revenues and salaries...

I'm clearly in the wrong line of work.
