We love to blog about Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, because there’s no other place on the internet where you can find entertainment like his latest post: Secularists Are Afraid for Children to Learn the Truth about Creation. Isn’t that a great title? We’re afraid that children will learn The Truth™. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Secularists fear when Answers in Genesis overcomes censorship and exposes school kids to evidence for creation and against evolution. You could even say these secularists throw tantrums when myself or our AiG scientists expose the lie of evolution and millions of years to the world and teach the truth of creation.
We always imagine that when Hambo is ranting like this, he’s red in the face, foaming at the mouth, and rolling around chewing the carpet. But here he’s saying that we’re the ones who throw tantrums. You gotta love it! Then he says:
Christians are happy to teach children about the various views of origins, but many atheists want children taught naturalism to the exclusion of all other views. My kids know more about evolution than most evolutionists — we’re not afraid to teach them about how to understand different views.
We don’t want to think about what goes on in the minds of Hambo’s kids. After that he tells us:
Atheists are afraid for people to think critically about origins since people would then understand that evolution is a religion.
[*Groan*] Not that again. See Hambo Says Evolution Is a Religion. By the way, Hambo uses the words “secularist,” “atheist,” and “evolutionist” interchangeably. It’s all the same to him. The rant continues:
Notice how insecure atheists are? They can’t have their belief critically analyzed, so they legislate to protect it in public schools. Atheists are so insecure that they don’t want anyone seeing nativity scenes, crosses, or any other Christian symbol for fear that people might start thinking for themselves.
You’re insecure, dear reader. Let’s read on:
Many secularists demand that no one acknowledge God in public places so they can impose their atheistic religion on the culture instead of allowing the free exercise of religion. The “separation of church and state” nonsense is nothing but a ruse by secularists to impose atheism on the education system and the culture. Where is the phrase “separation of church and state” in the First Amendment?
[*Groan*] We’ve pointed out a few times before that “checks and balances” doesn’t appear in the text of the Constitution either, nor does “limited government,” or “federal republic,” or “popular sovereignty,” or many other phrases that are nevertheless routinely used to accurately describe the Constitution. So it is with “separation of church and state.” When Hambo raised that same issue earlier, we wrote Ken Ham Unhinged: Creationism & Theocracy Too, in which we quoted letters from James Madison, the man who drafted the First Amendment, stating that the absolute separation of ecclesiastical and civil authorities was the Amendment’s purpose. But Madison’s opinion is nothing compared to Hambo’s. Here’s another excerpt from his rant:
Atheism is a faith that doesn’t make sense of the world and is not supported by observational science. It’s a blind-faith religion. For Christians, we believe “by faith,” yes, but it’s a faith that makes sense of what we observe and is confirmed by observational science. Those who reject creation are without excuse because God has made it evident to all that He created the universe and all life [scripture reference].
Hambo’s faith makes sense, and it’s confirmed by science. But you, dear reader, are an idiot. Here’s more
When you ask a secularist to list their evidence that the laws of nature arose by natural processes, they have no answer! These laws were created by God.
[*Groan*] The laws of nature are descriptions of the natural world, based on observation. They didn’t “arise” by some process. Things exist. They are what they are and behave as they do, rather than miraculously being what they are not and behaving some other way. It’s the creationist’s world of miracles that can’t be explained.
Hambo goes on with still more things secularists can’t explain:
Ask evolutionists for the best evidence for evolution — they’ll give you some story and will usually point to speciation (which is not evolution!). Try to get a secularist to explain how life with its DNA could have arisen by natural processes — they’ll give you some story, but they can’t explain it. Actually most evolutionists don’t really know why they believe what they do; they just regurgitate what they were indoctrinated in at school.
But Hambo can explain everything. The explanation is Oogity Boogity! You gotta be an idiot not to see it. Here’s one more excerpt:
Do you notice how irrational, illogical, inconsistent, and emotional many secularists get on social media when confronted with God’s infallible Word? That’s because it’s a spiritual battle!
Okay, that’s enough. We thank ol’ Hambo for a very entertaining Sunday rant.
