This is another short one from the Institute for Creation Research (ICR) — the fountainhead of young-earth creationist wisdom. The title is “Experience” Answers to Your Questions. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis:
My name is Ernie Carrasco [Hi, Ernie!], and I work at the ICR School of Biblical Apologetics.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Then he says:
I grew up believing that every word of the Bible is true. [How Wonderful!] But in my late teens and young adult years, I was often confronted with the challenge of defending the Bible against the story of evolution.
How did Ernie respond to the challenge? He tells us:
The only defense I could offer was “the Bible says.” That defense sufficed for me, but my challengers were never impressed.
They weren’t impressed? The fools! Ernie continues:
I discovered ICR about 12 years ago and learned that good science confirms the truth of God’s Word.
Ah — good science confirms the bible — and that’s the kind of science they do at ICR. Let’s read on:
I am excited about the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History because it will provide young and old alike with the tools they need to give an answer in addition to “the Bible says.”
We’re excited too! Here’s another excerpt:
In my work at ICR, I receive many questions about Noah’s Ark and the global Flood. One exhibit in the Discovery Center will include a 1/60-scale model of the complete Ark as well as a life-size portion of the vessel for visitors to walk through.
Why would anyone go to see ICR’s ark, when Hambo’s ark is 60 times bigger? Ernie gives you what he thinks is a good reason:
Nearby, a four-foot globe will demonstrate the Flood’s progress all over the earth.
A globe? That’s not how the bible describes the world — see The Earth Is Flat! Here’s more:
Visitors will “experience” the answers to their questions. And more than that, they will understand God’s grace through such a catastrophic event.
Huh? Killing almost everything on Earth was an act of grace? Maybe. What do we know? And now we come to the end:
I hope you will join me in prayer and financial support to see this wonderful project come to fruition.
Ah, it ends with a request for money. That’s good creationism!
