The so-called “curse of Ham” is not even mentioned in the museum (and it’s certainly not in the Bible). In the museum, we simply acknowledge the names of Noah’s three sons, including the descendants of his son Ham, some of whom settled in North Africa.I'll give it to Ken Ham that he does not teach The Curse of Ham. I kind of believe him on that. However, he claimed that it is not in The Bible. Well, Ken Ham? Yes, it is the freak in there.
And Noah began to be an husbandman, and he planted a vineyard: And he drank of the wine, and was drunken; and he was uncovered within his tent. And Ham, the father of Canaan, saw the nakedness of his father, and told his two brethren without. And Shem and Japheth took a garment, and laid it upon both their shoulders, and went backward, and covered the nakedness of their father; and their faces were backward, and they saw not their father's nakedness. And Noah awoke from his wine, and knew what his younger son had done unto him. And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren. And he said, Blessed be the LORD God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant. Genesis 9:20-27You can argue the metaphors of these verses all you want, but nothing changes the fact that these verses were used to condone slavery for thousands of years. Slave owners here in the south claimed that they had the right to enslave black people because blacks are the descendants of Ham. I was even taught this in church, even though it was over a hundred years ago when slaves were owned.
Ken Ham even now claims that black people are descended from Ham. Even though, there is no historical proof of it. To his credit, he stops there. However, there is racism in the roots of creationism and fundamentalism. Ken Ham will deny it forever, but The Curse of Ham is still in The Bible and is in the beginings of fundamentalism.
