Everyone knows who Richard Dawkins is. So does 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.
In what may be the most ironic post on the internet, ol’ Hambo has just written this: Dawkins’ Mind Is Closed.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Pause for a moment, dear reader, and savor the situation. Hambo — perhaps the world’s most clamorous creationist — says that Dawkins has a closed mind. In the immortal words of Bert Lance: “It’s like being called ugly by a frog.” Now you know why your irony meter blew out — and so did every other irony meter on Earth. They all need to be replaced.
We could stop right here and our point will have been made — but you want more, don’t you? Okay, we’ll give you some excerpts from ol’ Hambo’s post, with some bold font added by us for emphasis:
In an article titled “Atheist Richard Dawkins Calls It ‘Disgraceful’ That Presidential Hopefuls Are Creationists — and Reveals Which Religion Has ‘Maximum Toxicity,’” The Blaze website reports on a Fox News TV interview with prominent evolutionist Richard Dawkins.
We’re not familiar with that website, but the interview wasn’t on television. This is the radio interview Hambo is talking about. It’s 14 minutes long. Time well spent. Then Hambo tells us:
During the interview, Dawkins was asked “whether the atheist leader would ever change his mind about God, he said that he’s open to the idea. ‘Just show me some evidence and I’ll change,’ Dawkins said.”
That sounds reasonable. Here’s Hambo’s reaction:
Well, Dawkins has been shown overwhelming evidence by many people through books, discussions, a radio debate with my friend Dr. Andy McIntosh, and so on! In fact, God tells us that people like Richard Dawkins are without excuse (Romans 1:20). Dawkins reminds me of [bible, bible, bible]. People like Dawkins also remind me of [bible, bible, bible].
Overwhelming evidence indeed, but Dawkins’ mind remains closed. Let’s read on:
We need to pray for him. His heart is hard and he is blind.
Hambo is such a compassionate man! He continues:
So is Dawkins truly “open” to believing in God? Well, he pretends that he is willing to listen to evidence — but the evidence from his own life clearly shows that he refuses to believe despite the evidence. He is like the scoffers in [bible, bible, bible]. It is a deliberate act on their part to ignore the obvious and reject the truth!
Harsh words, but well deserved! Here’s more:
I’m reminded of what Abraham said [bible, bible, bible].
All that evidence, but Dawkins still won’t take heed. This is our last excerpt:
Dawkins has spent most of his life rejecting the writings of Moses, particularly Genesis, and trying to get as many people as he can to follow his rebellious lifestyle that leads directly to hell. Yes, we do need to pray much for him.
So there you are, dear reader. Will Hambo’s prayers have any effect? Will Dawkins open his closed mind? We fervently hope so. Otherwise, the poor fellow is doomed to the Lake of Fire!
