This is one of the most exciting things we ever saw 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 Go on an African Safari with AiG’s Drs. Tommy and Elizabeth Mitchell. Wowie! Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Earlier this summer, AiG’s Buddy Davis (dinosaur sculptor, musician, and adventurer) traveled with David Rives of Creation in the 21st Century to South Africa to lead a photo safari with the tour group Living Passages.
We posted a few times about Rev Rives’ journey to Africa, but we didn’t know he was with anyone from AIG. Hambo says:
The trip was quite popular and went so well that Living Passages is arranging another trip way down south, this time with medical doctors Tommy and Elizabeth Mitchell of Answers in Genesis.
From their website, Living Passages appears to be a creationist travel agency. We didn’t know there were such things. Then Hambo tells us:
This creation safari [Hee hee!], taking place June 7–17, 2019, is sure to be an incredible trip — you know, you can’t go anywhere with the Mitchells without having a great time. [Right!] And their biblical, creationist worldview teaching during the trip is sure to encourage you and your family.
We can’t imagine a better way to travel! He continues:
Enjoy deluxe accommodations, searching for the “Big Five” (the five big mammals: elephants, lions, leopards, rhinos, and Cape buffalo), an optional walk with lions [No way!], hunting, fishing, relaxing at the spa, a horseback safari, stargazing in the Southern Hemisphere (which has different constellations than we have up here) [What?], wild game feedings, and much more. There’s something for everyone on this trip of a lifetime.
Your Curmudgeon has no intention of taking a walk with lions. And what’s that about different stars in the Southern Hemisphere? Hey — that means the Earth isn’t flat! Hey, Hambo — that’s heresy! Let’s read on:
And anyone who signs up and later sends me a photo of Tommy on an elephant, I will send them an autographed copy of my new book, Gospel Reset.
That alone would make the trip worth while. One last excerpt:
Register by October 19, 2018, and enjoy the lion’s walk for free. [Whoopie!] Learn more and see a schedule of events on the events page of our website.
We briefly visited Hambo’s events page. They say the safari cost starts at $3,269 per person — and that doesn’t include airfare. Very reasonable!
We don’t know about you, dear reader, but rather than tour Africa with Hambo’s AIG people, your Curmudgeon would rather visit the Lake of Fire. At least it won’t cost anything.
