Ken Ham Denounces Darwin Day

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.

    “Yeah, Yahweh was there. Were you? Of course not, so what do you know?”
    Slightly retouched:
    “Yeah, Yahweh was there. Wes Kenny? Of course not, so what does Kenny know?”

    But, on a serious note, can we really expect AiG to explain away, or even mention, the inconsistencies in the Bible – such as the inconsistencies within Genesis itself? And which version of the Bible?

  2. I keep telling my friends in Australia to PLEASE TAKE THIS MORON back!…They refuse!

  3. Id the allotah dimwit wants to slam Darwin? Go ahead, as evilution WAS NOT invented by Darwin, it was an accepted theory before his book. He just looked for a method for it to work, and his book has been expanded to way past what he did.

  4. It says in the Bible that it’s God’s word. Apparently some haven’t considered that the devil may have written the Bible and cleverly claimed that it was God’s word.

  5. Just as the world was created at the beginning with the appearance of prior great age, so too the Bible was written with the appearance of being the product of Ancient Near Eastern culture.

  6. What do you expect,from a guy,who put Dino’s,on an Ark?

  7. Which version of the bible? Well, the original autograph, naturally. So it’s regrettable that not a single word of those 66-plus books has come down to us in the form of the original document, or even a fragment of one. Not even from the New Testament.

    It seems extraordinary that no-one thought it worth preserving ANY of the originals of these precious sources, and that God didn’t think it worth the bother of guiding anyone’s hand to take care of them for the avoidance of future doubt and dispute.

  8. We have the KJV which is more authentic than the origial manuscripts.

  9. “Darwin Day has nothing to do with abortion, gay marriage, or any other “social” issue.”
    Dear SC, who are you to question Ol’Hambo’s genius? Creacrap is a theory of everything, so everything has to do with everything!

    “Ignore Darwin Day”
    I will – until quite recently I didn’t even know it was a thing.The Lake of Fire will not be my destination anyway.

  10. DerekF thinks he’s clever:

    “But, on a serious note, can we really expect AiG to explain away, or even mention, the inconsistencies in the Bible – such as the inconsistencies within Genesis itself? And which version of the Bible?”
    Ol’Hambo doesn’t need to explain away anything, because nobody understands Holy Scripture as well as he does and he says there are no inconsistencies. What you perceive as such is nothing but the result of your stupidity. Which version of the Bible is also clear – the one Ol’Hambo recommends, because as our dear SC never gets tired to point out, Ol’Hambo is “the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.”
    Anymore stupid questions? No? Then you may have realized MNb’s Second Law of Creacrap: you can’t beat it.

    *Note: the First Law is that creationists are lying until proven otherwise.

  11. I for one applaud Hambo’s support for talking donkeys, talking snakes, pi equals 3 and a flat earth. Impressive. Would love to see Hambo’s checking account built on the gullibility of his pious fans.
