This is great news for a world that needs more scientists. 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. He just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Raising Up Creation Scientists. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
A recent article by a secular blogger [Gasp!] claimed that children who aren’t taught evolution won’t get that spark of interest that propels them to become scientists. Well, at Answers in Genesis we don’t believe that you need to be taught and believe evolution in order to be passionate about discovering more about what God has made.
That makes sense. Hambo has several people on his staff with science degrees of one kind or another, and they’re all flaming creationists. He says:
And this certainly bears true throughout history — many of the greatest scientists of all time were Christians who studied nature for God’s glory (and many of them lived at the time of Darwin)!
He’s right. We have an entry on that in Common Creationist Claims Confuted. If you go there, scroll down to “Great scientists of old were creationists.”
After that he tells us:
We want more scientists like that, and that’s why we hold our Explore Days and Explore 5-Day Summer Camp [link omitted] at the Creation Museum.
How wonderful! AIG is gonna crank out a whole bunch of Isaac Newtons — but the ones trained by Hambo will be doing alchemy and searching for bible codes, the things that wasted so much of Newton’s potentially productive years. Hambo continues:
Explore Days are full-day workshops focused on a specific branch or discipline of science. They include hands-on activities, visual presentations, and guest speakers. It’s exploratory science learning — taught through the lens of a biblical worldview.
Is there any other way to learn science? Let’s read on:
Each of our Explore Days (designed for students in grades 4–12) features one of these fascinating fields of study:
Eleven topics are listed, including biology, geology, and astronomy. Try to imagine, dear reader, learning those subjects “through the lens of a biblical worldview.” Here’s another excerpt:
We hope one of these Explore days will spark a lifelong interest and passion for science in your child. And if your young person wants more than just one day of interactive science, we invite them to join us for [some other Hambo programs].
Okay, that’s it. Hambo’s announcement is now all over the internet, reaching into every creationist home. Imagine the, ah… flood of young people eager to learn science who will attend Hambo’s programs. A glorious future awaits them as creation scientists.
