Tomorrow, 12 February, is Darwin Day — the birthday of Charles Darwin. It’s no surprise that Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else — is in full Bah, Humbug! mode.
To express his revulsion, Hambo just posted this at the AIG website: “Evolution Sunday” Celebrates Darwin from the Pulpit. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Today in the United States is “Evolution Sunday,” the final day of “Evolution Weekend.” This weekend, celebrated near Charles Darwin’s birthday (February 12), is an attempt to encourage churches to preach Darwin from the pulpit. Evolution Sunday began in 2006 to promote evolution among religious communities and convince them that belief in God is compatible with evolution. Basically, it’s an attempt to encourage churches to reinterpret God’s clear Word in light of man’s fallible evolutionary ideas about the past.
That is abominable! Hambo wisely provides no links which could lead his drooling fans astray, but he’s talking about the Clergy Letter Project, which also sponsors Evolution Weekend. Then he preaches:
As Christians, we need to allow God’s Word to be our authority in all areas. God is the eyewitness Creator, who was actually there in the beginning and revealed what happened in his Word. Instead of trusting the ideas of sinful, fallible human beings who weren’t there, we need to trust the infallible Word of our perfect Creator who does not lie to us [scripture reference].
Yeah, Yahweh was there. Were you? Of course not, so what do you know? After that he tells us:
There’s an increasing push from the secular world for Christians to embrace aspects of the religion of humanism, including evolution, millions of years, gay “marriage,” abortion, and more. Pastors and Christian leaders need to be equipped to think biblically on these issues and to defend the truth of God’s Word so they can teach their congregations to do the same.
Darwin Day has nothing to do with abortion, gay marriage, or any other “social” issue, but Ol’ Hambo is on a roll! He continues:
Many Christian leaders are telling us today that God’s Word just isn’t clear on issues like the age of the earth, creation, or even marriage. They tell us that we need experts and outside materials (like Ancient Near East texts or other archaeological artifacts) to even begin to understand what the text means. But God’s Word is clear in its basic message, and we can understand it.
Hooray for Hambo! No one understand it better than he does!
The rest of his post is a plug a conference AIG will be giving for preachers, along with his tourist attractions — the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, and also Ark Encounter, an exact replica of Noah’s Ark.
The message is clear. Ignore Darwin Day — it’s a trap that will lead you to the Lake of Fire.
