There was a global shattering of irony meters caused by the latest entry 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.
The title of ol’ Hambo’s post asks: Why Don’t More Scientists Believe in Creation? Great question! Why don’t you, dear reader, believe in creation? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Our many talented speakers and I clearly show how observational science confirms God’s Word.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Then Hambo says:
And yet, despite the overwhelming evidence that supports the Bible, many people still reject biblical creation. Why do so many, including scientists, fail to see the truth of the history of God’s Word?
Verily, it’s a great mystery. Let’s read on:
Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson, the newest addition to our research staff here at AiG, shared in a recent interview why he thinks so many scientists reject biblical creation, despite the evidence that confirms God’s Word:
Before we get to that, here’s Jeanson’s write-up at AIG. They say he has “a PhD in Cell and Developmental Biology from Harvard University,” and was “formerly with the Institute for Creation Research.” Harvard must be proud of him. His write-up in the Encyclopedia of American Loons says he has “a Medical PhD from Harvard.” Okay, here’s what Jeanson says:
I believe surveys say around 97% of professional scientists hold evolution. Understandably many people want to know why, if the evidence for biblical creation is so compelling, so many scientists still reject it. Well, the same surveys show that probably at least 70% of professional scientists are non-Christians.
Egad — what’s wrong with those people? Why are they all heathens?
Also, most people go through the public school system, and they hear from an early age just evolution. They never hear, and they are not taught even to consider, an alternative hypothesis. So they are taught from an early age to suppress the truth, and so this is just the fruit of an educational system that ignores the opposition.
Horrible! This is the last quote from Jeanson:
Also, by and large, they just don’t read our literature. They’re ignorant.
They must have loved that guy at Harvard. Now Hambo continues:
Sadly, many people are blinded to the truth of the history recorded in God’s Word because they are actively suppressing the truth in unrighteousness, as Romans 1 makes clear. It’s not that they need more evidence — they have all the evidence they need, but they suppress it.
He’s talking about you, dear reader. Here’s more:
But, thankfully, God often uses AiG and other creation ministries to get people thinking and questioning what they have always believed.
Yes, what would we do without Hambo’s website? This is the end of his post:
I encourage you to share AiG resources with your friends and family to encourage them to think, question what they believe, and be pointed toward Jesus Christ and the salvation that He offers.
Okay, dear reader, you know what you have to do. Go forth, and tell everyone you know about the wonders to be found at AIG.
