Creationists dont like The Clergy Letter Project, a strong, pro-evolution statement signed by over 13,000 Christian clergymen. Heres the Wikipedia article on it: Clergy Letter Project. The Project is exceedingly troublesome for creationists because it flatly contradicts their claim that one cant be a good Christian and also accept evolution.

“Ayatollah of Appalachia...”
It’s not really an argument, it’s just contradiction and name-calling. That’s what I see over and over again.
Atheists hate Ham like liberals hate Trump.
So, where do you stand with Mr. Ham?
I’m not a creationist.
Studies of biology textbooks and journal articles don't support the claim that "much of human knowledge" rests on the theory of evolution.
So, 13,000 clergyman are saying that the God they claim to worship didn’t really create life as we know it, although the Book they claim to follow explicitly says that same God is the Creator of all things? Hmmmm.
That’s not what the theory says. Read Darwin’s Black Box by biochemist Michael Behe; you can download it for free at https://www.goodreads.com/ebooks/download/49038.Darwin_s_Black_Box
Evolution has a basic problem. It has no starting point. When you nail an evolutionist down, they usually resort to the “seed of life” came from somewhere else in the universe. Otherwise, they have to acknowledge a “creator of the universe”, and, since that creator seems indistinguishable from God, they don’t want to do that. Making their problem even harder is the fact that their favorite theory of the physical universe has a beginning!
One of the real things that shows that Evolutionists don’t believe in evolution is that they support preserving “endangered species”. If they really believed in Evolution, the the extinction of an under-performing species in favor of a more adapted species would be desirable and would give them a chance to finally demonstrate the holy grail of evolution: a new species actually appearing by evolution from a preceding species.
Is that an argument? Are you claiming that an omnipotent God could not be responsible for life as we know it? To suggest that random mutations could be the cause of current life forms, much less the observable Universe is to engage in a fantasy that requires unlimited faith in the implausible.
And the evos story they put their faith in is even more out there than scientology. At least scientology’s wacko story has some purpose to it.
Because at the end of the evos story you cant ignore the last line, Its merely a random accident, all for No Purpose at all and has no inherent meaning.
Evolution deals with life and change in living entities, not the origin of life. Abiogenesis deals with the origin of life. They aren’t the same thing.
Well, a problem is that God tells us He not only created life, but specifically and personally created man. However, evolution leaves no room for that, since evolution is an impersonal and unintelligent process.
Those who believe in “guided evolution” do not believe in the theory of evolution any more than creationists, they just hope to shy away from a debate by pretending that they do.
“Evolution has a basic problem. It has no starting point.”
That is not evolution’s problem.
Real scientific argument there...usually one resorts to name calling when one doesn't have an intelligent rebuttal. I've never heard of Ken Ham beheading anyone or even threatening anyone so i don't where the "ayatollah" thing comes from. Mr. Ham just happens to believe what he reads in the Bible and wants others to come to believe it also so they spend eternity in Hell. Of course everyone has a right to choose for themselves what they believe, but they should at least have an intelligent argument instead of just name calling.
The Judeo-Christian diety has no starting point. A shared problem...
Are these the same fake “clergy” who ranks are filled with pedophiles?
Not exactly. The Jewish Sages identify the Ein Sof as the creator of the universe who is outside of space and time. Time did not start until the Ein Sof created the universe and manifested as Elohim, the three in one god head, that interacts with His creation. The first verse in the Bible can be translated as: “In the beginning [Ein Sof] created Elohim, the heavens and the earth.”
