An Amazing Ark Story from Ken Ham

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.

  1. “P.S. Little Stephen plans to use his AiG education to become a gas station attendant or maybe a greeter at Wal-mart!”

  2. Holy Cow, just looked at the pictures. Little Stephen must be big (and bearded) for his age… that’s at least 4th grade quality lego work!

    My name is Stephen and so this caught my eye. My namesake has talent, no doubt about that. Maybe one day Steve will discover the world of science and make a real contribution there.

    no animals? what’s an ark without animals?

  5. With those manifest Lego skills, Stephen could go on to join the ranks of all those creationist engineers. Who knows? he could even end up working for NASA.

    According to Hambo, the place is full of them.

  6. After looking at the photos of the Lego Ark and Stephen, my guess is that Stephen has some sort of developmental disability. We should say no more on the subject, other than lament the fact he has creationist parents.

    Ken Ham, however, is fair game, because his mental disability is self-inflicted.

    As always, Ole Ken Hambo lies. Telling lies is what he does.
    “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.”
    ONLY BECAUSE, Ken? What about the sleazy politicians who give you taxpayers money and tax breaks? There’s that too. You should be more honest, there might be a hell. You never know, Ken.

  8. Halfway ontopic, the Babylon Bee takes the mickey out of Ken Ham.

  9. Well if you don’t teach this nonsense at an early age it never sticks.

    Scary thought that these people not only vote, but hold positions of authority over us.

  11. Ironically, an ark made from real bricks would float as well as the HAMster’s fake boat.

  12. Don’t worry RSG… the only spectrum Stephen is on is the homeschooling spectrum. Some go on to win spelling bees, some go on to make lego copies of a touristy ark encounter.

    @Zetopan – “Ironically, an ark made from real bricks would float as well as the HAMster’s fake boat.”
    Well, very briefly. It would implode in seconds.
