Don’t be misled by our title, dear reader. We’re not talking about Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Rather, this is about the latest post at the website of his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG). It’s titled Lizard Skin Highlights the Creativity of the Designer. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The more we study God’s creation, the more we realize how complex and beautifully designed it is. I was reminded of this truth when I learned about how the drab brown or pearly scales of the juvenile ocellated lizard change to a green and black adult lizard “using a computer-like process,” according to recent research.
Hambo is talking about this: The scales of the ocellated lizard are surprisingly coordinated, which appeared in the late April issue of Science News. He tells us:
Like many creatures, the ocellated lizard changes colors as it gets older. But, unlike other creatures, individual scales can flip-flop on their color as the lizard ages, based on what’s called a “cellular automaton,” which is similar to some computer programs.
Hambo quotes a bit from that article and then says:
This is a really neat design for something as seemingly humble as lizard scales.
Okay, it’s “neat.” After that profound observation he tells us:
The detail and creativity God has put into every part of his creation should never cease to amaze us and drive us to glorify the Creator.
Indeed. Every time we see a lizard, we sink to our knees in dazed wonderment. Then Hambo lashes out at all those lost souls who believe in Darwinism:
How can anyone believe all this design happened by natural processes over the supposed millions of years!
Anyone who believes that secular nonsense is a fool! Hambo finishes his brief post with this:
No, the hand of our Creator God is so evident to all; anyone who doesn’t believe is without excuse [scripture reference].
Hambo is right. The lizard makes it so clear that no one except a hell-bound Darwinist can deny The Truth™.
