Hambo’s List of Recommended Publishers

This is exciting news from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. At the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry, he wrote: Answers in Genesis Launches CreationPublishers.com. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

While out on the road, AiG speakers, representatives, and I are frequently asked two questions: “How do we choose a good Christian college?” and “How do we find a solid, Bible-affirming homeschool curriculum?”

Not surprising. Those are the two most important questions in the world — to drooling creationists. Hambo says:

Well, several years ago we created our CreationColleges.com website [link omitted] to answer the first question, and now we’re very excited to announce the launch of CreationPublishers.com to answer the second question!

Isn’t that wonderful? Now, both of you important questions can be answered. After that he tells us:

If you’re familiar with our Creation Colleges site, you know it’s a place where you can find a list of Christian colleges that hold to biblical authority and AiG’s tenets of creation. To determine if the school is eligible to be on our list, we send them a “Tenets of Creation” document and ask for the president to sign it. We then give the academic dean, Bible department chair, and/or science department chair an opportunity to sign as well. On our site you can see which chairs at which schools signed the document. CreationColleges.org is an excellent place to start your college search.

Those are obviously the best colleges! Hambo continues:

Well, our brand-new Creation Publishers site is similar. [Ooooooooooooh!] We submitted the same “Tenets of Creation” document to various homeschool publishers and asked the president or CEO if they agreed with it and could sign it. We also gave the lead writer, content editor, and lead marketer an opportunity to sign. You can see who signed the document on our site.

Hambo doesn’t fool around. If he says a publisher is a creation publisher, you can believe it! Let’s read on:

Some homeschooling curricula are actually beginning to uncritically include evolution, millions of years, and other teachings (e.g., the big bang) that contradict Scripture. [Gasp!] Parents must be careful and discerning about what curricula they choose to use in educating their children.

Hambo’s right — you gotta be careful. He explains:

Just because it’s for homeschoolers doesn’t mean it’s Christian or that it stands on biblical authority — or that it takes the stand on biblical creation that it should!

Some publishers just can’t be trusted! Here’s more:

CreationPublishers.com is an excellent resource to help you start your homeschool or Christian school curricula search. While you still need to use discretion in what you purchase, Creation Publishers is a great starting place, and we’re pleased to make this helpful resource available to parents and teachers.

And now we come to the end:

Learn more at CreationPublishers.com — and be sure to tell other homeschoolers and Christian schools about this new site!

We used Hambo’s link and looked at his new website. Only six publishers are there. One of them is AIG itself. Another is Master Books. We know that name because they’ve published Hambo’s books — see Ken Ham — Self-Published Genius?

Okay, dear reader. With ol’ Hambo’s seal of approval, you’ll know who publishes the best science books — the ones that teach The Truth.

    Some homeschooling curricula are actually beginning to uncritically include evolution, millions of years, and other teachings (e.g., the big bang) that contradict [AiG’s idiosyncratic interpret of] Scripture.

    Then again who other than YECs believe the Bible is a science and history book?

  2. “We submitted the same “Tenets of Creation” document to various homeschool publishers and asked the president or CEO if they agreed with it and could sign it.”

    ….and promised to publish their name in return for a small donation fee….

  3. Meh, a quick look and they’re all private christian schools with things like “Bible” in their name, and most accreditation are just for “Christian” schools.

    Ie, none of the important big schools that anyone cares about.

    While out on the road, AiG speakers, representatives, and I are frequently asked two questions; 1. What’s it like to be superstitious, psychotic AND a writer of fairy tales and b. what is the fascination with talking donkeys ?
    Regards, General Haig,( leader of the scottish regiments destruction in world War I such that 10% of scottish men perished)? Immortalized inside the grounds of Edinburgh Castle and only steps away from the 1 o’cock gun embrasure.,

  5. Karl Goldsmith (@KarlGoldsmith)

    The claimed websites are just links to a page on AiG.

    Haig is celebrated in Scotland as the Scot who killed more of the enemy than any other. The enemy English, that is.

  7. “we send them a “Tenets of Creation” document and ask for the president to sign it.”
    Brrrr, I’m just reading a book about East-Germans and the way they experienced the GDR (in German: DDR). The Stasi did the same. Just replace Creationism with Marxism-Leninism (and no, dear SC, that’s not the only form of socialism as about all voters for Donald the Clown prefer to believe).

  8. Are Liberty and Bob Jones on the list of creation colleges? Or are they, we must infer, insufficiently biblical?

    And what about Bob Jones publishing and creationpublishing?

  9. Our Curmudgeon helpfully directs us:

    With ol’ Hambo’s seal of approval, you’ll know who publishes the best science books — the ones that teach The Truth™.

    But…but…in our glorious new Age of Endarkenment, we have Guiliani’s assurance that “Truth isn’t truth!”

  12. A Day in the Life:

    I read the news today, oh boy
    God’s Word had just been compromised
    And though the news was rather mild
    Ken Ham was not amused
    He was just about frothing at the mouth
    Now we know just what it takes to make the Hambo’ wild

    He blew his mind out in an Ark
    He hadn’t noticed that the crowds had thinned
    And though the crowds were very small
    Ken had to count them all
    Now he knows how many a**holes it takes to fill the Ark’s Main Hall

    We’d love to prove Ken wroooooooonnnnngggg

  13. The college list is interesting, with many (most) in the Appalachians. That’s a region with a rich musical heritage, especially bluegrass and gospel. Not that I believe the words, but the music is great. Curiously, I didn’t see Liberty U on the list.

  14. @Paul Braterman Bob Jones is on the list. I don’t see Liberty. But I do see an exciting link to a Ken Ham Daily newsletter. I am perplexed as to why our dear SC never apprised us of this valuable learning resource.
