You trashed the Jehovah's Witnesses besides Ken Ham.
That last paragraph is what is generally referred to as "a joke".
You've apparently never heard Reality Remix, Wednesday nights on ATS Radio… I do a lot of jokes -- that line was recycled from one that I told about Catholics a couple of months ago.

Sometimes I think so-called Christians like Ken Ham are actually hired to do exactly what he does. Make everyone think all Christians are just like him. As a former literalist. Even my former brothers and sisters wouldn't have said anything so ludicrous.

Well when you get down to it Ken Hams claim raises an interesting question.
He claims aliens are going to hell. Why, is it because they would be of a different culture and would probably not follow Christianity?
If that is the case then why is it he seems crazy to other Christians. Christians have been claiming the same thing about other cultures for centuries. Is it the alien part? If anything Ham is using the same reasoning I have seen Christians use over and over on all cultures terrestrial.
C.S. Lewis believed aliens, if they existed, would be unfallen. In That Hideous Strength, he referred to the vastness of interplanetary distances as 'God's quarantine precautions', designed to keep Earthly sin from infecting the rest of the universe.

Then people wonder why aliens wont make contact ...
People like that are one of the biggest reasons .. all they do is hold humanity back ...
That seems to be a worthwhile endeavor.
