Most of you are familiar with The Imminent Demise of Evolution: The Longest Running Falsehood in Creationism. It was inevitable that the greatest joke in the history of science would attract 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. He’s the brains behind the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum — which has become the North American Mecca for the mindless.
At Hambo’s personal blog we found The Death of Darwinism. Yes, dear reader, Hambo and AIG have officially become part of the greatest joke in the history of science. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
The past few days Answers in Genesis staff and a team of volunteers have been distributing over $50,000 worth of DVDs, books, and magazines to thousands of government school teachers and administrators at the National Education Association annual conference in Washington, DC. One of the AiG staff members who has been manning the booth at this conference sent me the following:
Try to imagine it, dear reader. There, at the country’s biggest convention of unionized school teachers, is an AIG booth handing out creationist literature. What follows is Hambo’s quote of a report from one of his people at the convention:
The theme for this year’s outreach at the annual NEA conference is “The Death of Darwinism.” The NEA (National Education Association) is the nation’s largest labor union in America, with over 3 million members, and which primarily represents public school teachers. It is one of the most liberal organizations in America today, promoting homosexual behavior, abortion, etc. It is a tremendous blessing from the Lord that AiG has been able to donate tens of thousands of dollars’ worth of creation and gospel materials for the past 16 years to the “NEA Creation Science Educators’ Caucus” to be freely distributed to thousands of school teachers.
The NEA has a “Creation Science Educators’ Caucus”? M’god! Let’s read on:
This year’s banner, “The Death of Darwinism,” has a two-fold message: First, life only comes from life, also known as the law of biogenesis. True operational science (as famously demonstrated by Louis Pasteur in the 1800’s) has shown that life never comes from non-life.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We can’t count how many times that old clunker has been debunked. See Common Creationist Claims Confuted. The report from the NEA battleground continues:
Secondly, the origin of life is actually the Lord Jesus Christ. The Bible proclaims Jesus Christ as the eternal life from whom all things have been created. “All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life …”
Okay, that’s solid creation science. Here’s more:
Darwinian evolution requires life to have spontaneously generated from inorganic matter millions of years ago. Observational science has disproven this outdated notion of spontaneous generation even in the minds of evolutionists, yet Darwinists dream that it must have happened at least once millions of years ago. That’s not science; that’s blind faith.
It’s good to see that AIG is opposed to blind faith. Moving along:
Christians have the true history of the universe, as found in the Bible. Our faith is based upon the Word of God and cannot be shaken by the vain imaginations of Darwinists. The Bible clearly proclaims that Jesus Christ (eternal life in 1 John 1:2) is the Creator of the universe, from whom all life comes and true science, such as the law of biogenesis, confirms this.
The NEA must be impressed. At the end of that thrilling report, ol’ Hambo adds a concluding paragraph:
Starting this weekend, 3,000 copies of the evangelistic Check This Out DVD [link omitted] will be given away to mostly unbelieving school teachers and administrators (along with thousands of other DVDs, books, and magazines). Praise the Lord, we are also able to encourage and strengthen the few Christian teachers who are NEA delegates.
At the very end, Hambo provides a link to the Creation Science Educators Caucus. It’s worth a brief look, if only to confirm that such a thing exists.
Hey, this NEA convention may be Hambo’s big breakthrough. If he gets the teachers’ union on his side, his influence will be enormous. Why don’t the UFO abductees do stuff like this?
