We have big news today 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 Go Behind-the-Scenes of AiG Short Film New Beginning at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Many people are familiar with the Genesis account of the flood and the ark. [Oh yeah!] But have you ever thought about how Noah and his family may have felt as the only world they knew was destroyed outside the ark by the raging floodwaters?
We’ve always wondered about that. Does Hambo have any insights? Eagerly, we read on:
Well, we’re excited to share with you an emotional and spectacular perspective on the flood account in the brand-new AiG short film, New Beginning.
Ooooooooooooh! Hambo’s movie is emotional and spectacular! He says:
This short film follows Shem’s wife as she writes down her memories of the evils of the pre-flood world and her time on the ark, and her perspective on the new world they’re now living in.
Wowie! Hambo has made a movie about a memoir written by Shem’s wife! How does he have access to this information? This is big news indeed! He tells us:
New Beginning really brings the account of the flood to life and offers a fresh and thoughtful perspective I believe you will enjoy.
Who wouldn’t enjoy Hambo’s movie? Then there’s a trailer of the movie you can click on. We haven’t looked at it. He continues:
New Beginning was largely an in-house project, with many of the characters — including the lead — being played by Answers in Genesis’ employees in departments as diverse as international outreach, IT, fabrication, Answers magazine, and more. They did a phenomenal job, and we’re thankful for their hard work and dedication to this project.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Hambo didn’t even have to hire actors. He’s so fortunate to have such great people working at AIG. Let’s read on:
The set, costume, and prop designs were also done by the talented team in our design studios. [Ooooooooooooh!] Unbelievably, the pre-flood world set was constructed almost entirely of cardboard and foam, but you’d never know it by looking at it! The ark scenes, along with the pre-flood world sequences, were also filmed in our design studio on a specially built set that could actually rock and move. The outdoor scenes were filmed at a beautiful location in Washington state.
This must be the greatest movie ever made! We’ll skip a bunch of promotional stuff. Aha, here’s one last excerpt:
Eventually, a longer version of this intriguing film will be played for guests to enjoy at the Answers Center, our state-of-the-art, 2,500-seat multi-purpose auditorium under construction at the Ark Encounter.
Wow — that’s really exciting news! Okay, dear reader. We know you want to click over there to learn about this move made from the diary of Shem’s nameless wife. Go ahead, click over there and check it all out. Then let us know what you think.
