We found an absolutely glorious article by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He runs the online creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), and he also created the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
The title of ol’ Hambo’s latest is Nine Year Old Challenges NASA. We’ll give you some excerpts, with bold font added by us, but first you need to see what Hambo wrote near the end:
Each time I give examples in my blog posts of children who have been influenced by AiG, the atheists go ballistic on their blogs.
We don’t know what the atheist blogs will do, but we’re going to play this straight. He begins like this:
I received a letter from a nine-year-old girl who has been brought up on AiG resources. She the following wrote to me:
“She the following wrote to me”? That’s what Hambo said. Anyway, we know you can’t wait for the little girl’s letter, so here it is:
I went to a NASA display of a moon rock and a lady said, “This Moon-rock is 3.75 billion years old!” Guess what I asked for the first time ever?
“Um, may I ask a question?”
And she said, “Of course.”
I said, in my most polite voice, “Were you there?”
Love, Emma B
Stunning, huh? NASA is undoubtedly reeling in chaos. Let’s read on from Hambo’s article:
Emma’s Mom wrote a letter to us with more information:
[From the kid’s mother:] Actually, Emma, age 9, asked a bit more, but I just copied what she typed for you. She was VERY excited to share it with you, since she’s been blessed to hear your teachings through your kids DVDs and Kids Answers.
Emma proceeded to answer that she thought the moon rock was probably around 6,000 years old, after the presenter asked her how old she thought it was then since she didn’t believe it was 3.75 billion years old? Then the rep asked Emma how she came up with that? Emma answered, “The Bible. If the earth was made around the same time as the moon, wouldn’t they be the same age?” Emma answered.
There’s more in Hambo’s article, including photos. The little kid is proud of herself, the kid’s mother is very proud of her child, and ol’ Hambo is thrilled. He wraps it up with this:
Praise the Lord, Emma has such a strong foundation in God’s Word and won’t fall for the atheist lies in their attempts to shake their fist at their creator God.
We won’t fulfill Hambo’s prophesy by going ballistic about this. It’s sufficient merely to tell the tale. What you make of it, dear reader, is up to you.
