my 67 tries to start itself

what happened was i drove my 67 camaro 350 4 speed back home after a drive and parked it for 4 days because the weather was bad. When i tried to start it nothing happened, so i tried to jump it and that didn't work. I tested the battery and it reads 0.1 So i charged it with a pro battery charger. The battery tests 12.6 but when i try and connect the battery cables back on the battery the engine tries to start. I think i probably need a new ignition switch but i don't want to go through unnecessary effort if i'm just way off. I would appreciate any input, i haven't been working on cars for awhile now because i just got out of the Marines so please talk to me like i'm dumb. THANKS!

Check the connections on the starter and make sure they are not touching each other or ground.
