Most of you know that when Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, came to the US from Australia to begin his creationist career, he first worked for the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom.
We’ve always imagined that ICR has been envious of the success Hambo has enjoyed since he left them, first with his infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and now with his recently completed Ark Encounter, which he claims is an exact replica of Noah’s Ark.
No longer content to lurk in the shadow of their successful protégé, ICR is planning to expand their role in the alternate reality of creationism. This just appeared at their website: ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History. It’s very brief, and it features a video which we haven’t looked at. Here’s what they say, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The Institute for Creation Research hopes to soon begin building the Discovery Center for Science and Earth History.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] Isn’t that wonderful? They tell us:
It will combine cutting-edge science and technology for an immersive experience that showcases God’s handiwork throughout the universe.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Yes — if someone from the Babylonian Empire were somehow transported to our time, he would undoubtedly agree that ICR’s Discovery Center was indeed a presentation of cutting-edge science. Then they ask:
Can you imagine how many lives will be changed?
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! No, we can’t.
Now here’s where you fit in, dear reader. ICR humbly requests:
Prayerfully consider how you can partner with us in this exciting project that will unlock the mysteries of Genesis for generations to come.
At the end of the post there’s a link titled Donate today! You’ll have to go to the ICR article to find that link. Then let your conscience be your guide. We know you’ll do the right thing.
