Our brain is still swirling from something we saw at the website of Answers in Genesis (ol’ Hambo’s online ministry). They just posted this: Answers in Genesis Website to Undergo Rapid “Evolution”.
They’re trying to be cute with that title. Their drooling fans are rolling on the floor, laughing at the thought of any evolution at AIG. But they have no idea how funny their article really is. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Sometime tomorrow the Answers in Genesis website will undergo rapid “evolution”! Actually, much intelligent design over a few years has now enabled us to release our all-new, fully redesigned AiG website Saturday, May 17. Check it out on Saturday and take it for a “test-drive.”
It’s evolution. No, it’s intelligent design! Get it?
All over Appalachia, creationists named Billy Bob and Billy Ray and Bubba are saying: “Hey, yeah — I get it now! Golly, Martha — they had me goin’ there for a minute! [*Slap knee*] Har-de-har-har! [* Wheeze*] That was funny!”
What a keen sense of humor those AIG folks have! Are you enjoying the joke, dear reader? You shouldn’t — not yet. Their joke, like their creation science, is tragic. Actually, the funny part is coming next. They tell us:
According to Wikipedia, “Responsive web design (RWD) is a web design approach aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience …
[Blah, blah, blah]
This new infrastructure and total redesign puts the new AiG website at the cutting edge of web technology. Very few Christian websites have implemented such technology. We think you will be amazed at all the changes. It’s like trading in your 20-year-old car for a Rolls Royce!
That’s it. The “evolved” website will appear tomorrow. So what’s the joke? The joke is this: AIG insists that they and everyone else should have the most primitive concept of the universe imaginable. They’re proud that they reject everything learned in the past 3,000 years, since Genesis was written. But while they wallow in their self-imposed ignorance, they eagerly embrace the latest trend in web design, and they’re bragging about it.
But that’s not all. This “cutting edge” website evolution is going on at the same time they’re about to build an “historically authentic” replica of Noah’s Ark. Come on, this stuff is funny!
So take your Curmudgeon’s advice: Unplug your irony meter for the weekend. Those things are delicate, and there’s no way they’ll survive the “evolution” at AIG.
