Therefore, we know very little about his background including whether he has any siblings or not. Ham has also not revealed the school where he started his schooling life but at least we know he is a learned man. This is because, it is clear that after graduating from high school, he enrolled in the Queensland Institute of Technology. He graduated from the University of Queensland with a Diploma in Education.

His passion for looking at the deep religious life he has today was influenced by a book he read written by Henry M. Morris and John C. Whitcomb. The book was titled The Genesis Flood, and he made it his favorite book when in college. After graduating from the University of Queensland, he moved to Dalby, Queensland, and started teaching science in one of the high schools there.

His children are also family people and have given Ken and his wife a total of 16 grandchildren but their names are not available for now.

Is Ken Ham Gay?

Ham might be secretive but it is very clear that he is not a gay. The fact that he has been married to Marylin for decades now and together they have 5 children is enough to prove that he is straight as far as his sexuality is concerned.

Professional Career

he started teaching at a certain high school in Brisbane in 1977. After meeting John Mackay who was also a teacher at the same school they became good friends as they both believed in Young Earth Creationism. The fact that his students believed so much in their evolutionary science textbooks that contradicted the Bible put a fire in his bones. It is for this reason that he decided to stand up and do something about that.

This is what led to the birth of Creation Science Educational Media Services and Creation Science Supplies which he founded together with his wife. The company provided resources that taught creationism in the public schools of Queensland.
