This one has already been all over the blogosphere, but it’s too much fun to pass up: Major Dinosaur Fossil Coming to the Creation Museum.
It’s from the pen of none other than Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), and it can be found at the website of his on-line ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), which owns and operates the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
I have some very big (I mean BIG) news to share with you! You will not believe what the Lord has dropped into our laps! And it fulfills a dream I’ve had for years.
There is no one more deserving than ol’ Hambo of having his dreams fulfilled. He explains:
You see, for decades I’ve walked through many leading secular museums, like the Smithsonian’s Natural History Museum in Washington — and the impressive one in London. I’ll have to admit to you: sometimes I’ve “coveted” their superb dinosaur skeletons.
Quite understandable. Let’s read on:
I also thought: why should it only be the evolutionist world that has access to such excellent fossils? Why not the Creation Museum, a place that honors God and His Word — and tells the truth about dinosaurs and their creation?
Yes, oh yes! The Truth™! We continue:
Well, “out of the blue,” we received a call from representatives of a foundation who wanted to visit the Creation Museum. During their visit, they were so thrilled to see the quality of the museum and its biblical messages. They had an idea. The foundation explained to us that through a series of events, it had obtained the fossil remains of a large allosaur dinosaur. We were told that their foundation wanted to donate this superb specimen to the Creation Museum so it could be used to help visitors know the truth of God’s Word and the gospel.
How thrilling! At Wikipedia, you can see some pictures of an Allosaurus fossil. Those big sharp teeth would have been ideal for devouring watermelons in the days before the Fall. Here’s more:
We learned many more amazing details about this world-class Allosaurus fossil, and its history. And it is a history that certainly did not go back more than 65 million years!
Certainly not! Moving along:
“Ebenezer” [AIG’s pet name for the fossil] was found articulated — that is, the bones were arranged in their correct anatomical positions relative to each other, rather than in a scattered assortment of bones (as dinosaur fossils are often found).
That’s obviously proof of the Flood. (All the scattered fossils don’t count.) Another excerpt:
I believe the Lord entrusted this incredible fossil to us because we have been faithful in standing boldly and unashamedly on the Bible’s authority, starting in Genesis. This is part of our mission to deliver the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
There’s nothing like a dino fossil to accomplish that noble task
The second half of Hambo’s post is a plea for funds so AIG can properly exhibit their fossil — presumably with humans happily frolicking around it. But we can’t help wondering — Why build a special exhibit for the fossil? There ought to be plenty of room for it in that replica of Noah’s Ark they’re building. But whatever they do, it’s going to be wonderful!
And so, dear reader, if you’ve been one of those secularist Darwinist scoffers who considered Hambo’s creation museum to be merely an oddball roadside attraction for rubes, now you’ve got to re-evaluate. They have a dino fossil! And that means … science!
