This is the sort of thing we like from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo). He’s the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia, famed not only for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG), but also for the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and for building an exact replica of Noah’s Ark.
Ol’ Hambo’s new post is Bill Nye Called Who “the Messiah”? We imagine he’s red in the face, foaming at the mouth, and rolling around chewing the carpet. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
During a recent interview at the Ark Encounter construction site, I was quite taken aback when a TV reporter with Channel 7 Australia, a major network in my homeland, asked me on camera if I was a messiah!
What’s wrong with that question? After all, the reporter had to realize he was talking to the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Hambo says:
Since that time I have kept wondering why he would ask such a bizarre question. I’ve never in my life been asked anything like that. … But I just discovered why the reporter asked his question. Watch this trailer that is advertising the Channel 7 program Sunday Night that will air on Australian national television this coming Sunday evening, and you’ll find out why the reporter posed the question.
We haven’t bothered to look, so we’ll let Hambo explain it to us:
Before heading to Kentucky to interview me, the reporter, or someone on his team, apparently interviewed Bill Nye “the Science Guy” of TV fame who debated me two years ago … . And Nye told the TV crew on camera that, concerning me, “his followers believe that he’s the Messiah.”
Ah yes, Bill Nye, who made a big mistake by debating with Hambo. Hambo has never stopped talking about it. Let’s read on:
Before I comment on that incredibly blasphemous statement (and I wait to see the full TV program this weekend to get more of a context as to why Nye said that), I want to offer an observation: I believe Bill Nye is under conviction concerning his atheistic views … . Nye’s secular worldview is based on the foundation that autonomous man determines “truth,” whereas my worldview is based on the foundation of the absolute authority of God’s Word.
A blasphemous statement from an atheist — what else would a creationist expect from someone who calls himself “The Science Guy”? Hambo continues with the most damaging thing he can say about Nye:
Nye is one of the featured speakers at next month’s Reason Rally in Washington, DC — advertised on Google as the “world’s largest atheist party.”
Gasp! Here’s more:
Is Nye an atheist? … [I]n our debate, Nye made it quite clear that he believed the entire universe and life came into existence by natural processes. And because naturalism is atheism, I would argue that his beliefs are more of those of an atheist. As a result, some people are now realizing that he is really “Bill Nye the evolution guy” or “Bill Nye the atheist guy.”
Nye is headed for the Lake of Fire! Moving along:
I have asked many of our staff members if they had ever heard any AiG supporter refer or allude to me as something like a messiah, and of course they have never heard such a thing.
Hambo can always get an honest answer from the AIG staff. The rest of his post is bible talk and promotion for his Ark park, so we’ll quit here. Quite a rant, wasn’t it? It looks like Nye’s reputation is down the drain.
