Ken Ham on Charles Darwin's 200th Birthday

There is a short article on France 24, which highlights the stupendously uphill battle that science education has in this country. Ken Ham says it straight out:

Ham said, “What this museum is saying is that God created the world in 6 days, about 6000 years ago.”

Now the scary part:

The Page family, visitors of the museum, had theories of their own. Kelly Page, the father, claims that dinosaurs never went extinct. “Humans used to live 900 years, so reptiles actually never stopped growing. Dinosaurs are just big lizards. Now the lizards don’t live as long, so they don’t get as big.”

Great Googlymoogly!! Science education has completely failed Kelly Page. How do you combat nonsense like that?
