That drawing was produced at great effort by the elves in our art department. It’s the creationists’ view of the universe. We had to leave out the Moon, because the little fellows were too exhausted. You can see a man — the climax of creation, and certainly no kin to no monkey — standing on the immovable flat Earth which is supported by pillars, and the sun goes around the Earth. Our world was created to be the principal focus of divine attention. That’s how the bible describes things, so that’s what a true creationist believes.
Now we have a new essay from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum.
The title is “We’ll find a new earth within 20 years”. We emphasize that was it was written by ol’ Hambo himself, so you know it’s important — and absolutely authoritative. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
I’m shocked at the countless hundreds of millions of dollars that have been spent over the years in the desperate and fruitless search for extraterrestrial life. Even Bill Nye “the Science Guy,” in our recent debate, happily gloated about tax dollars being spent toward this effort. And now, secular scientists are at it again.
Of course, secularists are desperate to find life in outer space, as they believe that would provide evidence that life can evolve in different locations and given the supposed right conditions! The search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man’s rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!
Hambo’s right — we’re desperate! Here’s more:
A UK news site recently reported, “Aliens are out there. We’ll find a new earth within 20 years.”
Hambo doesn’t provide a link, and we can’t find that UK story, but he’s talking about this, which was reported by ABC News: NASA predicts finding evidence of extraterrestrial life within 20 years. Let’s read on:
You see, according to the secular, evolutionary worldview there must be other habited worlds out there. As the head of NASA, Charles Borden, puts it, “It’s highly improbable in the limitless vastness of the universe that we humans stand alone.” Secularists cannot allow earth to be special or unique — that’s a biblical idea [scripture reference]. If life evolved here, it simply must have evolved elsewhere they believe.
Those accursed secularists! They hate the biblical teaching that the Earth is special. They’re gonna get what’s coming to them — for eternity! Hambo continues:
The Bible, in sharp contrast to the secular worldview, teaches that earth was specially created, that it is unique and the focus of God’s attention [scripture references]. Life did not evolve but was specially created by God, as Genesis clearly teaches. Christians certainly shouldn’t expect alien life to be cropping up across the universe.
Yeah — alien life is un-Christian! Here’s more:
Now the Bible doesn’t say whether there is or is not animal or plant life in outer space. I certainly suspect not.
The bible doesn’t mention bacteria either. We assume ol’ Hambo believes they don’t exist. Moving along:
And I do believe there can’t be other intelligent beings in outer space because of the meaning of the gospel. You see, the Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation.
No salvation for aliens! Even if they do exist, they’re all going to hell! Another excerpt:
Jesus did not become the “GodKlingon” or the “GodMartian”! Only descendants of Adam can be saved. God’s Son remains the “Godman” as our Savior. … To suggest that aliens could respond to the gospel is just totally wrong. An understanding of the gospel makes it clear that salvation through Christ is only for the Adamic race — human beings who are all descendants of Adam.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Salvation is only for the “Adamic race.” You heard it from Hambo: Jesus is a racist! On with the article:
Many secularists want to discover alien life hoping that aliens can answer the deepest questions of life: “Where did we come from?” and “What is the purpose and meaning of life?” But such people are ignoring the revelation from the infinite God behind the whole universe. The Creator has told us where we came from: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
Stupid scientists! Why don’t they listen to Hambo? He’s got all the answers. One last excerpt:
We need to start proclaiming the authority of God’s Word from the very first verse — even on the subject of alien life! For more information on the supposed existence of ETs and other common questions about a biblical worldview, I encourage you to order [AIG book promotion deleted].
So there you are, dear reader. You heard it directly from ol’ Hambo. If aliens exist, they’re going to hell. And if you think they exist, that’s where you’re going too.
