We noticed that we were getting hits from another website, so we went over there to take a look. To our surprise, it was about something Ken Ham had written about one of our recent posts — Ken Ham Is Furious Over Clergy Poll.
As you know, Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), is the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He runs the online creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), one of the major sources of young-earth creationist wisdom. He also created the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
So we visited the AIG website, but we couldn’t find Hambo’s remarks. Then we Googled on some of the phrases he had used and discovered that ol’ Hambo is on Facebook, and his remarks are here. We don’t have a Facebook account, but somehow we were able to find it.
To spare you the effort of visiting there and finding his comment (you’ll have to scroll a bit, as it was written on 11 January) we’ll quote what he said. It’s so enjoyable that we’ll break it up into paragraphs for easier reading. Here’s what Hambo wrote:
Sometimes I like to give you examples of how people refer to us. Much of what is written by our opponents to me illustrates how insecure they are — as we’ve seen over and over again, name calling and personal attacks.
This week, I was sent the text of a blog from someone who seems to be obsessed with doing their best to express their anger at God by writing against AiG and me personally. This has been edited down to inlcude [sic] what was said about me as this person went through one of my recent blogs sentence by sentence.
I wouldn’t bother putting the link up for you as God’s people wouldn’t want to waste their time going to such a site — but you can pray for this individual — God knows who it is.
After that, ol’ Hambo quoted bits and pieces from our blog post. You’ve already seen what we wrote, so we won’t repeat it. Our post that offended Hambo received a comment from a creationist who seemed to be one of Hambo’s big fans. Perhaps she’s the one who alerted him to what we had written. If so, maybe she’ll take Hambo’s advice and pray for us. That would be nice.
