Some of you are probably still clinging to Darwinism, insisting that the bible is irrelevant to the world today. Well, get prepared for a shock. We have some evidence — real evidence! — that is certain to change your mind. It’s 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 posted A Shark That Eats Its Veggies? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A news item [from Fox News: ‘Vegetarian’ shark discovery: First omnivorous species of sea predator stuns scientists] caught our eye this week. It was reporting on a study [from Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Seagrass digestion by a notorious ‘carnivore’] which found that the bonnethead shark (a smaller relative of Hammerhead sharks) actually eats and digests seagrass.
Ooooooooooooh! Wait — what are we drooling about? What does it mean? Hambo says:
Now, scientists have noticed these sharks eating seagrass for several years but, perhaps influenced by their evolutionary worldview [the fools!], had assumed they were just eating the seagrass to get at crabs, shrimp, or small fish living in and around the seagrass.
The scientists were wrong! Hambo tells us:
But when researchers fed some captive bonnethead sharks a mostly seagrass diet, they noticed that the sharks did just fine. … Samantha Leigh, the study’s lead author made a couple of fascinating quotes in her Fox news interview.
[Samantha Leigh says:] “We have always thought of sharks as strict carnivores, but the bonnethead is throwing a wrench into that idea by digesting a fair amount of the seagrass that they consume. Given that bonnetheads have a digestive system that resembles that of closely-related species that we know to be strict carnivores, we need to re-think what it means to have a ‘carnivorous gut’.”
Wow! But what does this mean? Hambo explains:
When you start from a biblical viewpoint [the only way to start!], this study is not surprising at all. God created animals as well as humans to be vegetarian right from the beginning (Genesis 1:29–30). Evolutionists frequently bring up “strict carnivores” like sharks as supposed evidence against certain animals ever being vegetarian, thinking they are disproving what Scripture says. [The fools!] But time and time again, animals thought to be only carnivores are found to be vegetarian or omnivorous.
Amazing! He continues:
This just further illustrates what the Bible says, that in the pre-Fall world there were no animals eating one another, no bloodshed, and no death. At the Fall, death, bloodshed, disease, and suffering entered all of creation, which now groans because of sin (Romans 8:20–22).
Once again, the bible is shown to be correct! And now we come to the end:
So a mostly vegetarian shark shouldn’t (and doesn’t) surprise us — it just gives us one more small glimpse into what life must have looked like when God called everything “very good” (Genesis 1:31).
Now that’s persuasive! Don’t you agree, dear reader?
