The video above is a one-minute commercial featuring Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia. He runs the on-line ministry Answers in Genesis (AIG), and the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
That commercial is getting a bit of attention on the internet because ol’ Hambo flat-out says:
You know, many of us would love to have the final proof that evolution’s a lie; the right scientific proof will silence those opposed to biblical creation forever, right? Well, no. You see, Romans Chapter one tells us that God has revealed himself to man in nature, so there’s no excuse for denying the witness of creation.
You heard him — he has no proof (other than scripture) that evolution is a lie. He also says:
You see, we can’t depend solely on our reasoning ability to convince skeptics. We present the evidence and do the best we can to convince people [of] the truth of God by always pointing them to the Bible.
Do you think he has any idea how devastating that is? Maybe we’re over-reacting. It probably doesn’t trouble Hambo to say those things because he knows that his followers don’t care. Ironically, his video is titled: “The Final Nail in Evolution’s Coffin.”
