You are certain to be stunned by the generosity 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.
Hambo’s latest post is titled Free Creation Museum Admission Christmas Eve. [*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh — free admission! [*End Drool Mode*] We’ll give you some excerpts, with bold font added by us.
Hambo begins by addressing the shock you undoubtedly experienced when you read the title of his post:
Yes, you read that right — admission is free to the Creation Museum on Christmas Eve! Do you have extended family coming to see you this Christmas here in our tri-state area of Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky? As a reminder to the culture that God’s gift of salvation to us is free, we open the Creation Museum free to the public on Thursday, Christmas Eve. The museum opens at 10 a.m. and we close earlier at 3 p.m. to allow visitors and staff to get home and prepare for Christmas Day.
You’re not dreaming, dear reader. Hambo will let you into his creationist museum for free! Then he says:
Whether you have younger children or teens, it is especially important in these secularized times to bring them to the Creation Museum. Secularists are becoming increasingly aggressive in trying to reach young people with the message that God’s Word can’t be trusted and that man’s word is the authority.
Those horrible scientists! Only Hambo can save us! Let’s read on:
And if you have unbelieving friends or relatives, the gospel is very clearly presented in our Special Effects Theater in the program The Last Adam, so this is a great opportunity to share the gospel with them. And, of course, there’s also the petting zoo and camel rides to be enjoyed.
Hambo has a link to The Last Adam, so you can go to his blog, find the link, and figure out what he’s talking about.
Hey — what if you can’t get there on Christmas eve? No problem — Hambo’s generosity is virtually boundless. He continues:
Now, if you can’t make it Christmas Eve, then take advantage of our 2 Buy 2 promotion — buy two tickets and get two free — any regular admission during the day, ending December 31. Every day is a great day to come as a whole family to the Creation Museum.
There’s even more at Hambo’s post, but we’re too overwhelmed to go on. You’ll have to read the rest for yourself.
We are a bit curious, however. Hambo’s behavior is contrary to what one might expect. Night clubs, for example, don’t reduce their prices for New Year’s Eve. They usually raise them to take advantage of the expected throngs of people who want to celebrate that night. So why would Hambo reduce the price of his admission tickets during the holiday season, and literally give them away on Christmas eve?
It can’t be that he isn’t expecting crowds of people who want to get into his museum. That makes no sense. But then … why is Hambo doing this?
The only possible explanation is that ol’ Hambo is truly a great and compassionate creationist. What a guy!
