We hope this thrills you, dear reader, as much as it did us. It’s from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. We found it at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: “I Don’t Know the Words to Describe” the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum.
We too don’t have the words to describe Hambo’s mind-boggling Creation Museum, and his exact replica of Noah’s Ark known as Ark Encounter. Well, we do, but they wouldn’t be appropriate here. Anyway, here are some excerpts from Hambo’s post, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
We receive so much mail and email from those who are excited about the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter. It really gives us encouragement to know that so many in the younger generations want to stand boldly for the Lord.
Yes, it must be wonderful. Then he says:
I thought I’d share with you today a typical letter we were blessed to read recently from a child, as we receive so many like this on a weekly basis.
His post includes a picture of the hand-written letter. It’s difficult to judge, but it looks like it was written by a third-grade child. Then he gives us the letter’s contents in text we can copy. Here it is:
Dear Mr. Ken Ham,
Hello Mr. Ken! My family and I recently visited the Ark and Creation Museum. [Lucky kid!] I don’t know the words to use to describe how amazing this experience was! I thank God that there are still people like you! I want to thank you and everyone else who helped build the Ark and Creation Museum.
It gets to you, doesn’t it? The letter continues:
I also want to thank you for all the debates you have done! Wow! God has truly blessed you! I cannot thank you enough for all that you do. I know you have been persecuted throughout your life [Huh?] but God told us that would happen (2 Timothy 3:12). He also tells us to rejoice when we are persecuted in Matthew 5:11–12 (my favorite Scripture). So next time you are being persecuted remember to REJOICE!
That’s the letter. Then Hambo tells us:
Praise the Lord with us for all those children that we’re helping parents raise up to stand uncompromisingly on the Word of God beginning in Genesis. We certainly need more children like this.
And that’s all there is, except for some promotional stuff. Well, dear reader — did the letter thrill you? We’ll say only this: If Hambo allowed comments on his blog, we might get a more accurate picture of things. But if people are already motivated to visit Hambo’s museum and ark, maybe they all react like that.
