The blinking letters of the wall display of our Drool-o-tron™ said WorldNetDaily (WND). As you know, WND was an early winner of the Curmudgeon’s Buffoon Award, thus the jolly logo displayed above this post.
Our computer was locked onto this article at WND’s website: Will Congress go ape for National Darwin Day? It’s a “WND Exclusive” by Bob Unruh, a long-time WND writer, and there are already 59 screaming comments on their website.
We recently wrote about Another Darwin Day Resolution in Congress. That was in the House of Representatives. Since then, our friends at the National Center for Science Education (NCSE) have reported about a similar resolution in the Senate — see Darwin Day resolution in the Senate. Which of those is WND talking about? The start of their article doesn’t make it clear, but later we learn that it’s about both of them. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
A Democrat resolution in Congress to create a federal Charles Darwin holiday in honor of the theory of evolution is an attack on Christianity, contends Ken Ham, the young-earth creationist who founded Answers in Genesis.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] WND is quoting a genuine expert — 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. Unruh tells us:
“It’s because they’re intolerant of Christianity and want to replace it with their own religion,” said Ham, who has appeared on news programs such as “The O’Reilly Factor,” “Fox and Friends,” “The Situation Room” and “Good Morning America.”
Wow — Hambo has been all over the place. Later, the article mentions that “He’s debated the evolution with Bill Nye, the ‘science guy,’ and his Creation Museum has attracted millions of visitors.” Hambo must be an expert. Let’s read on:
Atheist groups have applauded the effort. The holiday would celebrate “the achievements of the biologist Charles Darwin and affirming the scientific consensus supporting the theory of evolution,” the Secular Coalition For America said in a statement.
Egad — with a name like that, the “Secular Coalition” must be really evil. Unruh continues:
Ham told WND the resolution is a sign of the nation’s current move to suppress Christianity and promote beliefs such as evolution. While America was built on the Judeo-Christian ethic and worldview, secularists are becoming more and more intolerant, he said, citing demands to remove Nativity scenes, crosses and other representations of the nation’s faith heritage from public view.
Aaaargh!! See Is America a “Christian Nation”? Back to WND:
“Evolution is a religion of this day,” he [Hambo] said. It’s the atheist trying “to explain life without God.” Faith undermines atheism’s assumptions, he said. “They want to replace it with their own religion,” he told WND. “The intolerant atheists now increasingly are trying to impose their religion on the culture as a whole.” He asserted the premises of evolution “lack credulity” and require a “blind faith.”
All we can say to that is BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Moving along:
He told WND the same tactics used on those who believe God created the world in six days are being used on skeptics of global warming theories.
We’ll skip the material on global warming, and we’ll also skip Hambo’s babbling that ““There are two different kinds of science: observational and historical.” Here’s another quote from ol’ Hambo:
“So creationists don’t deny science – we deny the evolutionary interpretation of the evidence.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! We’ve written a lot about that — see The Curmudgeon’s Guide to Creation Science.
The rest of the article is more praise for Hambo, and more quotes from the great man about various policies of Obama involving climate change, gay marriage, and abortion. Hambo declares that God will not hear Obama’s prayers because:
How could God hear this plea when the iniquities of this nation and the president area so great?
Verily, Hambo sounds like the prophets of old. We’re not surprised to see that WorldNetDaily fully supports Hambo’s thinking. With opposition from Hambo and WND, the Darwin Day resolutions are doomed.
