Everyone knows that today is the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. We weren’t going to write about it because it’s far from our usual subject matter. But nothing is beyond the scope of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), 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.
We have long known that ol’ Hambo is the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. It now appears that he has a superior understanding of 9/11 too. His article at the AIG website is Remembering 9/11 Fifteen Years Later. We’ll give you some excerpts with bold font added by us, and Hambo’s scripture references omitted.
After an introductory paragraph reminding his readers what happened on that date, he says:
The events of 9/11 sparked a national question: “If there’s a good God, how could He allow such death and suffering?” This question will likely be on the lips and minds of many again today as they reflect on the 15-year-old tragedy. To answer this question we need to look at biblical history.
Hambo knows where to go for information! He would be a great national security advisor. Here’s his analysis:
God originally created a perfect creation: “Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good [scripture reference]. There was no death or suffering in this original creation [scripture reference]. God gave the first two people, Adam and Eve, the command not to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and told them “for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die” [scripture reference]. … Adam and Eve chose to rebel and sin against their Creator. Their choice brought death and suffering into creation. … Death and suffering are not God’s fault — they are our fault in Adam. Terrible things like terrorism are the result of sinful human beings living in a cursed and broken world.
Aha — 9/11 is Adam & Eve’s fault! Yes, that explains everything. Let’s read on:
Our world is hurting. 9/11 brought terrorism more into the public eye, and acts of terror have continued both here in America and abroad in many nations since 2001. It’s easy to feel hopeless when you turn on the news and hear about yet another terrible tragedy. But for those who have trusted in Christ, there is real hope.
After some bible talk, Hambo can’t resist saying this:
By the way, for secularists who believe in evolution and say that it must be taught as fact to public school students, death is a necessary part of the evolutionary process — therefore evolution is then responsible for death and suffering.
This is an absolutely brilliant analysis! Here’s more:
And death is the end — with no hope! Evolution’s a religion of hopelessness and meaninglessness. How different from the wonderful message of the sure hope of the gospel!
Hambo goes on a bit longer, but we’ve given you the best of it. Now go forth, wiser than you were before.
