Our clandestine operative in Kentucky, code-named “Blue Grass,” thought this was a particularly noteworthy post from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. The title is Two Museums, Two Science Programs, and Two Worldviews. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
The ability to study God’s creation — a rational universe we can make sense of — and do science is a great gift from our Creator. Science should move us to praise and glorify him. But, sadly, many worship the created creatures rather than their Creator. And many children are indoctrinated in government schools to think this way, instead of being encouraged to look to God’s Word, use that as the basis for science, and then do good science for God’s glory.
Wow! How can we use science to make sense of Hambo’s miracle-filled universe, the one described in Genesis? Perhaps he’ll explain that as we move along. Meanwhile, he says:
Jennifer Rivera, the Creation Museum’s education specialist … wrote about an upcoming science program for children at the Cincinnati Museum Center (about 20 miles from our museum). She contrasted it with the Explore days at the Creation Museum. She writes,
[Hambo quotes Jennifer:] This winter, two local museums in the Cincinnati area are providing science programs for children. Parents have the option of enrolling their children in the Cincinnati Museum Center’s Program on Wheels entitled “Evolution of Diversity” or the Creation Museum’s “Explore: Forensics.” As a parent, consider which program would engage your child in learning science from a biblical worldview and teach them the truth of God’s Word.
That’s a big decision for parents to make. Hambo tells us:
The Cincinnati Museum Center’s Evolution of Diversity program will “explore a timeline of major species evolution and extinction events.” During this hands-on workshop, children will supposedly be captivated by the evolutionary dioramas and fossil specimens, designed to convince them these faulty, man-made ideas are in fact true. Sadly, this is another example of indoctrinating children, with the use of visually alluring materials, into believing that everything came into existence through random processes over eons of time. If these children are just animals and the result of random accidents, then they have no purpose, no hope in life, and no basis for right and wrong.
Oh, how horrible! He continues:
Children leave these workshops convinced that the process of evolution is scientific fact, but this is not the case. Evolutionary processes have never been observed and are solely based on man’s faulty assumptions about the past and misinterpretations of the fossil record and other scientific evidence. Ultimately, evolutionary scientists are relying on blind faith when making their interpretations.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! There’s no blind faith involved at Hambo’s Creation Museum. He explains why:
In contrast, the biblical account of creation has been directly observed by the perfect eyewitness, Jesus Christ, who provides us with an accurate description of these events in Genesis. Beginning with the Genesis record and the timeline provided in the Bible, creation scientists are able to make intelligent, reasonable scientific predictions with logical conclusions. What we observe in the world is completely consistent with God’s Word! And by starting with God’s Word, children recognize their value and purpose within God’s creation. At the Creation Museum, children are taught real science through a biblical lens.
Yes, Hambo’s museum is based on real science! One more excerpt:
We are not ashamed to stand on the authority of God’s Word and present hands-on science activities with the Bible as our starting point. Our educational programs are designed to provide solid observational science interwoven with biblical truth.
The rest of Hambo’s post is about the wonders to be found at his museum. You can read that for yourself if you like.
And so, dear reader, you have a choice to make. Will you take your children to that godless Cincinnati Museum and expose them to evolution? Or will you take them to Hambo’s museum, where they can learn The Truth™?
