This is an odd one — even for Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. It just popped up at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry, titled Go Spelunking with Buddy Davis in Cumberland Caverns. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Looking for some adventure in God’s amazing creation? [Yes!] Then grab your hiking boots and join AiG adventurer, singer/songwriter, paleo-artist, and sculptor Buddy Davis in beautiful Tennessee for a Creation Caving [link omitted] adventure through the spectacular Cumberland Caverns, March 16–17, 2019.
What does that have to do with creationism? Bear with us. Hambo says:
Buddy’s video, Amazing Adventures: Extreme Caving [link omitted], was filmed at Cumberland Caverns and he’ll be showing the video on location while you enjoy a delicious dinner inside the cave.
Wowie — dinner in a cave! It’s what we’ve always wanted. Hambo tells us:
You’ll also be entertained at a Buddy Davis concert, as well as hear some behind-the-scenes stories while you explore the caverns for yourself during a 1.5-mile hike. Encounter a waterfall, gleaming pools, and historical saltpeter artifacts — all underground! And, of course, you’ll also discover how the caves actually formed according the true history found in God’s Word.
The bible explains how caves were formed? We didn’t know that. What does the bible say about caves? All we know is the tale in Genesis 19 about Lot and his daughters. Here’s a bit of it (King James version, of course):
29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when he overthrew the cities in the which Lot dwelt.
30 And Lot went up out of Zoar, and dwelt in the mountain, and his two daughters with him; for he feared to dwell in Zoar: and he dwelt in a cave, he and his two daughters.
31 And the firstborn said unto the younger, Our father is old, and there is not a man in the earth to come in unto us after the manner of all the earth:
You know what happened next. What will happen during Hambo’s caving expedition? He continues:
And if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, tuck in for a night in the caves — but only after some wild cave spelunking.
Daughters optional. Let’s read on:
Crawl through tight crevices, scale up ladders, and get wet and muddy. [Yuk!] This hike is not for the faint of heart — and you’ll be ready to crawl into your sleeping bag when you’re done! — but it’s an unforgettable adventure exploring God’s creation. (And don’t worry, there are showers outside the caves!)
Sounds great! One more excerpt:
By the way, the Ark Encounter is about a four-hour drive from the caves, so maybe you can combine a trip to see the massive ship as well.
Okay, dear reader, now you have some decisions to make. Does Hambo’s adventure appeal to you? Really? Well, then click over to Hambo’s post. The links for signing up are all there. And for a real biblical experience, bring your daughters! Hambo will approve — see AIG Defends Lot’s Righteousness.
