For your weekend entertainment, dear reader, we visit 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.
Hambo just posted Answering Atheists — Our Powerful Easter Conference. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
During Easter week atheists are gathering in Cincinnati, OH — in the backyard of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter — for their national convention.
Hambo doesn’t provide a link for that event but we found it: American Atheists 2019 National Convention. He describes Cincinnati as the backyard of his creationist tourist attractions. We’re not told how the people of that city refer to Hambo’s location. Anyway, then he says:
That same week (April 17–21, 2019) we’re hosting our own conference at the brand-new Answers Center at the Ark Encounter — Answering Atheists, and one of our special guest speakers is well-known evangelist, Ray Comfort (who loves to engage atheists).
Wowie — Hambo’s convention is designed to answer the godless, hell-bound atheists, and Ray Comfort will be there. In case you didn’t know it, Hambo and Comfort are buddies — see Hambo & Ray Comfort — The Dynamic Duo. After that he tells us:
And we’re encouraging believers and atheists alike, in fact everyone, to attend. We will cover a large range of topics: biblical, scientific, philosophical, etc.
It sounds great! Maybe you should make plans to be there. Hambo continues:
This five-day conference (culminating in a sunrise service Easter morning) will answer questions such as:
• Who created God?
• Does creation science make testable predictions?
• Why do Christians believe the Bible?
• Is there evidence of the resurrection?
• How do you share the gospel with an atheist?
• Does it matter what one believes about Genesis?
Also, we will have special movie nights.
There’s no one in the whole flat world who knows more about those things than Hambo! Let’s read on:
Speakers include AiG’s [Who cares?] and me. Joining us will be Dr. Christopher Cone, president of Calvary University, Dr. Jason Lisle of the Biblical Science Institute, and Living Waters’ Ray Comfort, Mark Spence, and Emeal “E.Z.” Zwayne. WOW! What a line up!
Very impressive! Another excerpt:
And I’m excited to say that all of the Answering Atheists sessions are included with purchase of our special multi-day pass to our attractions. … There are passes for families, couples, or individuals. This is the best value to allow you to attend each day of the conference and experience everything these attractions have to offer. You can view pricing and other conference details at [link omitted].
We had to visit that link to see what the thing costs. For one person the price is $199. For couples it’s $249. For families, $499. And parking is included! Hey — this is interesting:
We will be offering the atheists at their conference a special deal for them to visit the Ark and the conference sessions.
It’ll be interesting to see how many of them accept Hambo’s offer. This may be their best chance to learn The Truth™ so they can avoid the Lake of Fire. That’s Hambo’s hope too, as he states at the end:
Please join us in praying that many believers will be equipped and encouraged through this event and that many atheists will attend and will have their beliefs challenged and their faith in atheism shaken — and most of all that they will realize their need for Jesus Christ as their Savior.
So there you are, dear reader. Mark your calendar and make plans to attend Hambo’s glorious event in April. Unfortunately, your Curmudgeon won’t be there — but don’t let that discourage you. And if you go, be sure to let us know what we missed.
