From Ken Ham — The Real News on Aliens

We already know what Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else — thinks about the topic of extra-terrestrial life.

In Ken Ham: Aliens Are Going to Hell!, Hambo declared:

The search for extraterrestrial life is really driven by man’s rebellion against God in a desperate attempt to supposedly prove evolution!

He also said:

[T]he Bible makes it clear that Adam’s sin affected the whole universe. This means that any aliens would also be affected by Adam’s sin, but because they are not Adam’s descendants, they can’t have salvation.

Then, in Ken Ham: Geocentric Universe, No Aliens, he announced:

Despite a lack of evidence, scientists are becoming increasingly convinced that life will be found soon. … But from a biblical perspective we shouldn’t expect to find life in outer space.


So we have good reason to say that there isn’t intelligent extraterrestrial life, and it’s doubtful that there is even microbial life in outer space, though Scripture doesn’t completely rule out the possibility.

If you needed any further evidence, in Ken Ham Says There Are No Intelligent Aliens we quoted him saying:

One can postulate endlessly about possibilities of intelligent life in outer space, but I believe a Christian worldview, built on the Bible, rejects such a possibility.

Well, he’s at it again. Hambo’s latest blog article is Do Aliens Have the Answers to Life? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:

The idea of extraterrestrial beings is everywhere in our culture. Since the invention of television, we’ve seen countless cartoons, sci-fi films, and TV shows featuring aliens. … One thing these supposed aliens nearly all have in common is heightened intelligence, often revealing humans on earth to be so far behind in development that they’re practically primal.

Hambo thinks the whole concept is absurd. He says:

An evolutionist astronomer [obviously a godless fool!] once suggested that perhaps the reason we haven’t yet made contact with alien life is that aliens are ignoring us. He backed up this claim with the idea that aliens may have formed cliques, much like the ones high schoolers deal with every day, and humans aren’t cool enough to be in the clique. This clique is so exclusive that all alien groups have formed a pact to ignore us unintelligent humans.

After that he tells us:

Recently, Scottish astronomer Duncan Forgan refuted this idea, though he added that any assumptions are difficult to test with computer simulation because there isn’t any real alien data.

Hambo’s information on that came from this article at Fox News: Are aliens avoiding Earth? But Hambo knows more than everyone else, so he tells us:

Well, here’s the real news: real alien data will never exist because, well, aliens aren’t real! You see, people are always looking for something beyond themselves to explain life and the universe, answer their big questions, give them the keys to immortality and infinite knowledge, and offer them a sense of purpose. But when people deny the true Creator of the universe, they’ll look for anything to try to replace Him — no matter how ridiculous their ideas are.

That’s the real news, dear reader. Hambo continues:

Isn’t it interesting that they’re looking for everything God has already provided?

• Genesis 1:1 tells us how we got here: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

• Ecclesiastes 12:13 states our purpose: “Fear God and keep His commandments.”

• 1 John 5:13 explains eternal life: “These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God.”

• And Proverbs 1:7 provides the key to knowledge: “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge.”

Now you know everything you need to know. Hambo summarizes it all in his final paragraph:

When we look for answers outside of God’s Word, our efforts are in vain and even foolish. These evolutionists/atheists have turned what serves as simple entertainment for many of us into a passionate, expensive pursuit that will never give them the answers they’re looking for. Only a life pursuing our Creator will give us the answers and purpose we seek.

Okay, dear reader, that’s the whole story about aliens. Go now, and repent.

  1. He’s whistling in the dark. A recent estimate states that the universe contains about 2×10^12 galaxies and galaxies seem to contain about 10^11 stars. That’s a lot of stars and the odds are overwhelming against Ham’s biblical “evidence”.

  2. When we look for answers outside of God’s Word, our efforts are in vain and even foolish.

    What is the answer in the Bible for:

    What is the cause of the Grand Canyon?

    How many species of the cattle kind are there?

    How far does the Earth travel in one year?

  3. Ah, Ham now clears up the mystery of why there were no aliens admitted on the Ark. Every other populated planet in the universe equally suffered the universal flood that god sent down, and ever since that momentous time, no alien life has been able to repopulate their worlds, and, of course, why we are the only life forms in the universe on its only habitable planet.

  4. Basically, Ham is asserting that it has been “vain and foolish” to move beyond the bronze age. After all, our purpose in life is to fear an invisible being.

    Ken Ham in a nutshell.

  5. It’s rare to see the fundamentalist/ creationist type quote Ecclesiastes. I’m surprised to see Ham do it. That book of the Bible is usually treated like the red-headed step child among that set.

    It’s the same book that tells us in chapter 3: “19 For what happens to the children of man and what happens to the beasts is the same; as one dies, so dies the other. They all have the same breath, and man has no advantage over the beasts, for all is vanity. 20 All go to one place. All are from the dust, and to dust all return.”

    It isn’t very easy to square that with going to heaven to sing songs with Jesus.

  6. If astronomers find any extraterrestrial life, it will be due to evidence for it, unlike the Hamster’s mythological god thing (blessed be his/her/its name).

  7. abeastwood says: “If astronomers find any extraterrestrial life, it will be due to evidence for it”

    You must liberate yourself from your secularist dogma.

  8. So much nonsense there its not even worth trying to refute it all.

    The more he preaches, the more he exposes his absolute nonsense. We can just let him do all the work for us.

  9. Coyote, trouble is, as long as he keeps cherry picking the bible and adding his own ‘scientific’ responses, people will suck up to him.

  10. I spent all day Saturday with aliens: the local Comicon was fabulous & all proceeds from the concessions were donated to the Alternative Humane Society.

    Funny how all those people dressed up in imaginative outfits seemed so much more human and kind than most of these “godly” folks.

  11. When we look for answers outside of God’s Word, our efforts are in vain and even foolish.

    Then I guess the Hamster doesn’t get his flu shots, or use GPS to find driving direcons, or . . . ! After all, these things depend of “godless” science.

    And as I’ve written elsewhere, the existence or nonexistence of extraterrestrial life as no bearing on whether life on Earth evolved or not.
