Yes, dear reader, you read our title correctly. Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the genius who brought you the website Answers in Genesis (AIG) and the mind-boggling Creation Museum, is attacking Stephen Hawking, the renowned theoretical physicist.
You see, ol’ Hambo is not only the holiest man in the world, the one who understands scripture better than anyone else, and who knows more about biology, geology, and astronomy than all the world’s scientists put together, but he also knows infinitely more than Hawking. Verily, ol’ Hambo is the greatest human who ever lived. His new essay will prove it to you. The title is “Science Offers a More Convincing Explanation”.
For several days, the press has been quoting from an interview Hawking gave recently, during which he said that he’s an atheist — as if there had ever been much doubt. But the press treated it as a big deal. One of the first stories we saw was a week ago, from NBC: ‘I’m an Atheist': Stephen Hawking on God and Space Travel.
Now Hambo is reacting. This is how it starts, and one phrase from Hawking is the title of Hambo’s essay. The bracketed material in this paragraph was inserted by Hambo:
Theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking recently said in an interview that, “Before we understand science, it is natural to believe that God created the universe. But now [what he calls] science offers a more convincing explanation.”
Observe, dear reader, that ol’ Hambo’s insertion clearly suggests that Hawking doesn’t know what science really is — but of course Hambo does. That kind of confidence comes naturally to a man who knows with absolute certainty that he speaks for God. Here are some more excerpts, with bold font added by us and scripture references omitted:
Hawking has spent much of his life and career trying to show that God is not necessary for the creation of the universe but that naturalistic processes can account for everything. Why does he spend so much of his time trying to fight against Someone he doesn’t even believe exists? But does “science” really offer a better explanation than Scripture?
You didn’t know that Hawking has spent his career in an anti-God crusade? Hambo knows it. Let’s read on:
Well, this reminded me of my debate with Bill Nye “The Science Guy” last February. … [L]ike I said to Bill Nye during the debate, “there is a book” that tells us where everything — including atoms and consciousness — came from.
Hambo’s book tells us everything! He continues:
Even though Hawking says that science (and by this he actually means unobservable, unrepeatable, untestable historical science) has made the idea of a Creator obsolete, Scripture makes it clear that Stephen Hawking knows that God exists but that he is suppressing this truth in unrighteousness. Trusting in naturalistic historical science gives Hawking a feeble way of explaining life without a Creator. As [scripture reference] explains, he has exchanged God’s truth for a lie. So the “science” he is referring to is really his religion — his blind faith to explain the universe and life without God.
Let us pause to summarize what ol’ Hambo has said about Hawking: Hawking: (1) doesn’t know what science is; (2) knows that God exists, but is so unrighteous that he denies it; (3) denies truth in favor of a lie; and (4) has blind faith in his “science,” which is really a religion. There can be no doubt — Hambo is not only all-knowing, but he’s also a warm, compassionate example of what religion is all about. Here’s more:
Hawking goes on to clarify a point from his famous book A Brief History of Time, where he says that eventually scientists will “know the mind of God.” He explains that, “What I meant by ‘we would know the mind of God’ is, we would know everything that God would know, if there were a God, which there isn’t. I’m an atheist.” He later declared that “there is no aspect of reality beyond the reach of the human mind.”
Uh oh. Hambo doesn’t like that. Here’s what he has to say about it:
This sounds very similar to Satan’s sly words to Eve in Genesis 3:5, “you will be like God.” Humanity — right from the beginning — has always tried to become like God but it has always resulted in tragic consequences. So what Hawking has declared is nothing more than the same old lie the devil gave to Adam and Eve.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! In addition to all his other slurs, now Hambo says that Hawking is like Satan!
There’s not much else to Hambo’s rant, so we’ll leave it there. And now you have a choice, dear reader. You stand at a fork in the road. Whose path will you choose to follow? Will it be that of an unrighteous, truth-denying, Satanic liar like Hawking, or a warm, loving, godly man like ol’ Hambo?
