This is a heart-warming tale from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: An Ark Made Out of Bricks. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
It’s always a joy to meet with our supporters, either at our themed attractions or on the road. We’re able to continue doing what we do only because of thousands of individuals and families around the world who give generously and pray continually.
Yes, we imagine it is a joy. Then he says:
At a recent donor event in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, I met a family who supports us. Their son, Stephen, had a unique item to show me — a Lego ark he’d built!
Ooooooooooooh! Hambo’s blog has several pictures of Stephen’s wondrous creation. We’ll wait while you click over there to enjoy them. All done? Okay, now Hambo tells us:
People of all ages love building with Lego bricks, and it was fun to see this Ark Encounter replica that Stephen had constructed. He included the towers the Ark is anchored to that house exit stairs, restrooms, and elevators, and he even featured the A/C units on top of the towers!
Just like the one Noah built! The tale continues:
Stephen’s parents shared this with me:
[Hambo quotes a note or something:] We very much appreciate Answers in Genesis and are so glad God brought AiG … [Hambo’s ellipsis] into our lives back in the early years of homeschooling our four sons. We’ve learned so much. [Hee hee!] … We began supporting AiG back before the Creation Museum was built and we were blessed to be able to attend the Behind the Scenes tour before the museum was open to the public. Thank you for your obedience to Christ. We pray for you, personally, and for AiG, on a regular basis.
And their son Stephen turned out to be a fine creationist. Isn’t that wonderful? Here’s our last excerpt:
We are very thankful for this family and so many other families just like them, who partner with us in reaching millions of people with the message of biblical authority and the gospel.
Well, dear reader, if that didn’t bring a tear to your eyes, there’s no hope for you.
