This has been a day with no news whatsoever, so we’ll mention something that appeared yesterday at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
It’s titled Explore Days: Science from a Foundation of Faith. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The vast majority of museums, schools, and other institutions teach science from a naturalistic (really atheistic) perspective. [Gasp!] This, of course, includes evolutionary and millions of years teaching.
It’s a tragedy. But help is on the way! Hambo says:
Well, we’re excited to be offering hands-on, full-day science workshops at the Creation Museum that teach science from a foundation of faith in God’s Word and the truth of creation as recorded in Genesis.
Hambo has written about his creationist indoctrination camps before — see, e.g.: 5 Days of Hambo’s Creation Science. He tells us:
These workshops are called Explore Days and will build up, rather than tear down, your children’s faith, while they learn about what God has made — and how to defend the Christian faith. They’ve been extremely popular, usually selling out well in advance. Young people in grades 4–12 will love doing real science [Hee hee!] and growing in their knowledge of both God’s Word and his world.
What an opportunity! He continues:
Just some of the fascinating topics covered during these full-day workshops at our Northern Kentucky museum are:
• Human anatomy
• And much more!
At Hambo’s website, each of those topics is a link. We took a look at Zoology. It begins with a bible quote, and then says:
Phew! What’s that smell? It’s the animals in the zoo. Have you ever wondered how to care for zoo animals or how God fit all the animals on Noah’s ark?
That question goes unanswered — except, perhaps, at the actual teaching event. We also looked at Dinosaurs. That too starts with a bible quote, and then:
On what day did God create dinosaurs? Did dinosaurs evolve into birds? Were dragons real? Were dinosaurs on Noah’s Ark? If you want answers to these questions, then Explore Dinosaurs is for you!
Thrilling, huh? Here’s our last excerpt:
Each workshop is taught by an expert in the field [Hee hee!] and includes hands-on workshops, along with biblical worldview teaching. These workshops have been so popular we’ve changed from holding just one a month to two or three each month. But they are still expected to sell out quickly, so be sure to register your child early to ensure a spot.
Okay, dear reader. Sign you kids up now — before it’s too late!
