We are sometimes overwhelmed by the wisdom of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. This is one of those times. At the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry, he just posted Why Is Atheism a Bankrupt Religion? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Whenever I call atheism a religion, I immediately receive backlash from atheists, who claim they have a “non-belief.” But what’s their non-belief? [Yeah, what is it?] It’s a belief there is no God [Gasp!] and all life (and matter in the universe) is the result of naturalism. [Yuk!] So, they have a religion, a worldview, through which they filter everything.
Those hell-bound atheists don’t know what they believe, but Hambo knows, and he explains it for us. He says:
And they have beliefs as well: right and wrong are relative; everything evolved by chance through random processes; the universe began with a big bang; and more. [It’s madness!] And these ideas must be accepted by faith (a blind faith). Actually, it’s a faith that lacks credibility. Their faith is in a bankrupt religion.
Even a fool would be convinced at this point, but that’s not all. Hambo tells us:
Atheism can’t answer the fundamental questions we all ask: Who am I? Why am I here? What happens when I die? [He’s right!] Sure, atheists attempt to answer these questions, but it’s not an ultimate or authoritative answer — it’s just someone’s opinion. Without the Bible, there’s no ultimate answer to these questions. And atheists can’t explain where the laws of nature and laws of logic came from. What they call “natural processes” can only be explained by an intelligent designer.
Ooooooooooooh! An intelligent designer!
The rest of Hambo’s post is a promotion for a video he’s selling. It begins like this, with his links omitted:
Mark Spence, VP of outreach at the Living Waters ministry [That’s Ray Comfort, a/k/a “Banana Man.”], recently sat down with Billy Hallowell, the host of PureTalk, a Pure Flix interview program (you can find this show on Facebook), to answer this question . . . and discuss how to reach atheists with the gospel message.
Okay, that’s enough. Now it’s up to you, dear reader. Are you going to cling to your false religion of atheism, and suffer the inevitability of eternal torment, or will you embrace the message of ol’ Hambo? It’s up to you.
