As you know, Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, is the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. But did you know that he’s also an expert on the existence of intelligent alien civilizations?
It’s true. He just posted this at Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Study: We Probably Won’t Hear from Aliens (Because They’re Dead). Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
Scientists have been searching for signals and messages from intelligent extraterrestrial beings for many years now and so far have turned up nothing. In a recent study [We probably won’t hear from aliens. But by the time we do, they’ll be dead], scientists “updated” the Drake Equation, a mathematical equation that estimates the number of detectable civilizations throughout the Milky Way. They concluded that, if we do receive signals from an alien civilization, the aliens who sent it are probably already dead.
Ah yes, the Drake equation. The estimates it produces are always being updated due to the number of planetary systems now believed to exist, but it’s still unknown how common life — and intelligent life — actually is out there. Hambo says:
Are they dead, or is it simply that they never existed? Sort of reminds me of those people who talk about “missing links”: are the links missing because they haven’t found them, or did they never exist? Well, whether aliens or missing links, I don’t believe either has ever existed.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Hambo has written several times telling us that there aren’t any aliens out there. The last time we blogged about it was Ken Ham Says Aliens Are a False Religion. But we’ve never seen him — or any creationist — dismiss aliens and missing links at the same time. Hambo tells us:
The researchers reasoned that if a civilization lasted less than 100,000 years — the time they assume it takes light to cross the galaxy — the odds are almost nonexistent that we will receive that broadcast while the civilization still exists. Essentially, they think these signals would be “ghost signals” from a dead alien civilization.
Yes, if the aliens were at the opposite rim of the galaxy when the signal was sent, and if they all died out since then. Two big ifs. Hambo continues:
[T]he article on this new Drake Equation research ends with the news that one researcher “is now working on a paper about what it means that we’ve found [no signals] so far.”
But Hambo already knows. He announces:
What it means is that there aren’t any intelligent alien civilizations out there! And that’s exactly what we’d expect starting with God’s Word.
Why don’t those fools listen to Hambo? He explains:
The Bible tells us earth was formed to be inhabited, and it’s to earth that Jesus came to save us, not to another planet to save another race of beings. You see, Adam’s sin broke all of creation [scripture reference], so if there are other intelligent beings out there, they suffer the effects of Adam’s sin, but, because they aren’t descended from Adam, they can’t be saved. Jesus came to die for Adam’s race — not Klingons or Vulcans!
Yeah — phooey on Klingons and Vulcans! One more excerpt:
The belief in aliens (which really comes from an evolutionary worldview) is a huge theological problem. On top of that, all this searching for them is nothing but a waste of time and money, though discoveries about the universe along the way point to the glory of the Creator God if one just looks [scripture references]!
That’s all you need to know about aliens, dear reader.
