If you teach evolution, or if you know anyone who does, you should know about this. It’s described by 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 posted Genesis Apologetics Has a New Mobile App! Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Contrasting the biblical position on origins with secular evolution often requires tackling several controversial subjects like radiometric dating and the age of the earth, the geologic column, dinosaurs, etc. Taking these subjects head-on, the group Genesis Apologetics [link omitted] strengthens the faith of God’s people (teens and younger students most of all) by grounding them in biblical truth and equipping them to discern error.
Sounds like a great outfit. Hambo says:
Genesis Apologetics’ doctrinal position on creation aligns with our statement of faith [How wonderful!], and GA often acts as a conduit for our research [Research?] and that of the Institute for Creation Research, presenting that research in simple and engaging forms to rebut the evolutionary teachings that students receive in public schools. [Hee hee!] The majority of GA’s training is provided free of charge. They also offer training programs, like Debunking Evolution [link omitted], which are great for equipping high school students in local churches.
Okay, we get it — they’re another source of Oogity Boogy! Now what? Hambo tells us:
Some of our PhD experts have helped edit their latest videos, so the nearly 17,000 Genesis Apologetics’ viewers — including pastors, parents, and students — can experience up-to-date answers [From 1,000 BC!] to the most-pressing creation vs. evolution questions through practical and easy-to-understand web, video, and written resources.
After all that build-up, he finally gives us the news:
And now, Genesis Apologetics has a new mobile app! With school starting around America and other western nations, this app can be a great tool for students who are getting “evolutionized” in almost all government-run schools.
Wowie — a creationism app! Hambo doesn’t mention it, but the Discoveroids had an app years ago. We posted this back in 2012: Intelligent Design? There’s an App for That. Anyway, he continues:
This easy-to-install app addresses most evolutionary topics covered in public schools between the 5th and 12th grades! Sections include: Debunking Evolution Theory; Fossils & Transitional Forms; The Age of the Earth & the Bible; and more.
What a great tool for your students! Here’s the last of it:
I encourage students and parents to download this informative and easy-to-use app today! It can be installed on iPhones and Androids. Learn more at GenesisApologetics.com [link omitted] or find the app on the iTunes App Store or on Google Play.
So there you are, dear reader. If, in the middle of your lecture, a student is furiously fiddling with his smart phone and then raises his hand, you’ll know what to expect.
