This must surely be an occasion when creationists will be celebrating and shooting off fireworks. It’s all coming together in what we’ve been calling the Great Creationist Coalescence (the GCC) of various creationist outfits. A previous example is in Discovery Institute Adopts a Jack Chick Argument, which links to some earlier occasions.
Today, in one glorious post, we have three giants of the creationist universe together at the same time, for the same reason. We learned about it because of the shattering of our Drool-o-tron™, right after it alerted us with its blaring sirens and flashing lights. The blinking letters of its wall display 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.
With its last efforts, the Drool-o-tron™ had locked our computer onto this article: Christian evangelist Ray Comfort’s take on ‘stupidity’ of secularism. Above the headline is a note telling us this is a WND Exclusive! We read it, and now we’re going to inflict it on you. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
It’s a powerful alliance between two of the most dynamic evangelists in the world. Ray Comfort, creator of the blockbuster documentary “180” and other powerful films, is about to debut his most explosive production, “The Atheist Delusion.” And the spectacular location for the premiere will be the Ark Encounter in Kentucky, the newly opened theme park created by Ken Ham and his organization Answers in Genesis. The premiere will take place on October 22 at 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
Wowie — this is the same thing we wrote about in Ray Comfort’s Movie & Ken Ham’s Ark. Now it’s being promoted by WND! That means three of our favorite creationists — WND, Comfort, and Hambo — are together in this one. Okay, we already know what WND’s article is all about, but let’s find out what they’re saying:
Comfort, who has produced many books and films as founder of Living Waters Ministries, is hopeful about the possibilities for evangelism in his newest masterpiece. Comfort also says the movie will help Christians understand the rational basis for their faith.
“Most people believe that there’s no evidence for God,” Comfort explained to WND. “It’s all a matter of ‘faith.’ ‘The Atheist Delusion’ will change that. In it we asked hardened atheists one scientific question, and they changed their minds about the existence of God, almost immediately. This film is a life-changer. Hardened atheists will hate it because it pulls back the curtain on atheism’s stupidity and on their motive.”
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] It’s a life-changer! Then we’re told:
WND Founder Joseph Farah hailed the movie as Ray Comfort’s “greatest work yet.”
This is obviously Comfort’s best work since Ray Comfort’s “Banana video”. Here’s more:
Comfort said his excitement about the project helped drive his desire to premiere the film at such an impressive location. “The thought was that there would be no greater place than the Ark to launch a movie like this,” he enthused. “Ken Ham is a personal friend and his ministry is greatly respected across the world. It’s a hard-sell to say that we have a film that provides irrefutable evidence for the existence of God. Having Answers in Genesis put their blessing on it has given it instant credibility with many.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Instant credibility indeed! After that, WND devotes a few paragraphs to praising ol’ Hambo. This is a small sample:
Ham told WND he is enthusiastic about the film because he sees Comfort’s efforts as complementing his own mission of defending the truth of Scripture. Answers in Genesis, which seeks to provide answers to questions about the Bible regarding creation, evolution, science and the age of the Earth, is well known for its Creation Museum. However, it really generated international headlines when it built the Ark Encounter, a full size replica of Noah’s Ark made according to the specifications given in the Bible.
After more of the same, WND tells us:
Ham bemoans the widespread acceptance of evolution, which he sees as an outgrowth of secularist control over the public education system as well as a failure by many Christians to learn apologetics. “Through the public education system, where naturalistic evolution is presented as fact to generations of students, an intense secularist indoctrination has occurred,” Ham charged. “Legislation is constantly being introduced to prevent the teaching of creation in schools so that students can’t hear alternative views. Because of that indoctrination and brainwashing throughout government schools and the secular media, it’s important that we overcome this censorship and get out vital information to the public.”
Skipping an ark-load of blather, we find this gem:
Comfort argues atheism is popular in this decadent time because it allows people to engage in degenerate behavior without guilt. He argues the evidence for God is so clear and compelling that those who cling to secularism are simply trying to avoid moral standards.
Comfort is talking about you, dear reader. There’s more of the same in the rest of WND’s article but we’ve seen it all before, so this is where we’ll leave them. It’s good to see that the Great Creationist Coalescence is growing stronger. That means there is hope that the evil House of Darwin will soon be tumbling down. Won’t that be wonderful? And now we need to install a new Drool-o-tron™.
