The Curmudgeon knows your innermost thoughts, and we’re aware that what you really want is to find a great creationist university for your children’s education. We’re here to help.
Just wait ’till you see what we found at the blog of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He’s famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the mind-boggling Creation Museum.
Ol’ Hambo has just posted Partnering with a Creationist University. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
One of the most-asked questions I receive at conferences and from visitors to the Creation Museum concerns whether I have a recommendation for a Bible college or university that has a strong creationist emphasis that their teenagers could attend.
Yes, everyone wants his kids to grow up to be creationists So what’s Hambo’s answer? Here it comes:
Sadly, there are very few creationist universities (or Bible colleges or seminaries, for that matter) in the world — and only one we know of that has a creation-based geology degree program — Cedarville University in Ohio (only about 2 hours from the Creation Museum)
Here’s a link to the Cedarville University website. Okay, back to Hambo:
This past week, we opened a new exhibit at the Creation Museum — sponsored by Cedarville University. It’s called the Cedarville University Mining Company sluice.
Mining? We didn’t realize there was creationist mining, but now that we think about it, it makes perfect sense. Let’s read on:
Cedarville University has come alongside the Creation Museum for yet another fun and teachable activity — this time involving geology. Guests will be able to “mine” their own fossils and gemstones and then identify them. There will be workshops at the sluice to teach about geology and the wonderfully created items that are discovered in each bag of dirt, which costs only $6.00 (including tax).
Only six dollars? Amazing! Hambo continues:
Participants will also be able to get additional information about geology from Dr. John Whitmore (who heads up the geology program at Cedarville) through a special link from Cedarville University. The fun never stops at the Creation Museum!
Whitmore writes for AIG, and he was a speaker at AIG’s First conference on creation geology. Here’s more:
AiG’s molecular geneticist, Dr. Georgia Purdom, is a Cedarville alumna, and there are others associated with AiG (spouses or children of staff members, for example) who are current students or graduates of this university.
Wow — sweet Georgia Purdom is a Cederville graduate! It must be a terrific school! One last excerpt:
Thanks, Cedarville University, for sponsoring a great addition to the Creation Museum!
Well, dear reader, you were looking for a creationist university, and now you’ve found it. We are pleased to have brought you this information.
