The trauma of the election is now past, at least for most of us. For those who are able to resume our customary discussion of The Controversy between evolution and creationism, we turn to a new post by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. The title is A Flood of Evidence — A New Book from Answers in Genesis!. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
I am very excited to announce the arrival of a brand-new resource in our bookstore — A Flood of Evidence: 40 Reasons Noah and the Ark Still Matter. Whenever I am out speaking or greeting people here at the Creation Museum or the Ark Encounter, I get many of the same questions about the Flood and Ark over and over again.
[*Begin Drool Mode*] Ooooooooooooh! [*End Drool Mode*] A new book! Hambo goes on to say:
This new book, written by me and my son-in-law Bodie Hodge, answers many of these questions, such as:
• How many people died in the Flood?
• Doesn’t it take millions of years to form rock and rock layers?
• Could Noah fit all the animals on the Ark?
• How could God kill all those innocent people in the Flood?
• Where did all the water come from and where did it go?
We can answer those questions. No one died in the Flood because it never happened. Yes, it takes millions of years to make rock layers. No, all the animals couldn’t possibly fit on one goofy boat. God can kill all the people he wants to kill. And as for the water, it came from the Seventh Planet, the one that dare not speak its name, and that’s also where it went.
But you’re not interested in the Curmudgeon’s answers, or in our Top Ten Reasons Noah’s Flood is Mythology, so let’s return to what Hambo says:
Now there are many books on Noah’s Ark and the Flood already in print. Why did Bodie Hodge (well-known AiG speaker/writer — and my son-in-law) and I decide to write another one?
That’s twice Hambo told us that Bodie is his son-in-law. Anyway, to satisfy your burning curiosity, he explains why they wrote the book:
Well, we really wanted an easy-to-read book on the Flood to answer these top questions that we repeatedly get. We wrote it for the average person so that it’s not too technical and not too “childlike.”
In other words, they wrote for the typical drooling ignoramus who cares about such things. Hambo continues:
So we thought it was important — especially with the Ark Encounter bringing the Flood and Ark into the public eye — to provide a layman resource to give Christians basic answers to the most common questions about the Flood. This book is perfect for people wishing to learn more or for believers to share with their unbelieving friends.
Yes, it’s perfect! Let’s read on:
Ultimately, we don’t just want to convince people there was a global Flood and a Noah’s Ark — we want to point people toward the Savior, Jesus Christ. This book contains a strong gospel message connecting the one door of the Ark that Noah and his family passed through to be saved, with Jesus Christ, the one Door [scripture reference] who offers salvation from God’s coming judgment.
Then there’s a convenient link to where you can order the book. You are going to buy it, aren’t you?
