This is really good! It’s from Answers in Genesis (AIG), one of the major sources of young-earth creationist wisdom. AIG is the online creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia.
Ol’ Hambo didn’t write this, but that’s not important. It’s great stuff! AIG sometimes answers their mail when people send in questions, but today they’ve really outdone themselves. You can find it here: Feedback: The Creator of Plants (and everything else) vs. Zombies.
Here’s the question they got:
You guys are crazy. I understand that your belief in a cosmic Jewish zombie who was his own father who wants you to symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically accept him as your master will remove an evil in your soul placed there by a rib-woman who was convinced by a talking snake to eat from a magic tree is clouding your perception of scientific evidence, but all your doing is confusing Christians who can’t afford to go to college or are uninterested in REAL science. You should be ashamed of your selves and I hope this is a spoof website.
We told you it was great. And then, patiently, line by line, AIG responds to it. They really do. We won’t bother to excerpt their response because that would spoil it for you. If you’re interested you’ll click over there to see what they say. But we will give you AIG’s final paragraph, with scripture references omitted:
You may have sent your email thinking that it would rile us up. Instead, it actually saddens us that someone would spend time railing against the Creator — a Being that you allegedly don’t believe exists. Why would it even concern you if you truly believed God didn’t exist? But you know the truth and are suppressing it in unrighteousness. We will pray that you will humble yourself, turn from your sins, and call out to the Savior to save you from the eternal punishment we all deserve.
In other words: Repent, letter-writer, or you’ll end up in the Lake of Fire.
