Prepare to be blown away by this new evidence from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. At the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry, he just posted Sea Creatures in Ohio? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
When you think shells, fish, and other sea creatures, you probably don’t think of Ohio. After all, it doesn’t exactly feature seaside living! And yet there are fossils of sea creatures found throughout that state, as well as in many other landlocked areas. [Gasp!] The common evolutionary explanation was that, at some point, Ohio — the state neighboring us to the north — was covered in a shallow sea. But what if there’s a better explanation?
Whoa — hold on! Why wouldn’t there be fossils of sea creatures in Ohio? Even a casual glance at a map reveals that the state borders on Lake Erie. The Wikipedia article on Ohio says: “To the north, Lake Erie gives Ohio 312 miles (502 km) of coastline, which allows for numerous cargo ports.” And Lake Erie is but one of the five inter-connected Great Lakes, the largest group of freshwater lakes on Earth.
Anyway, Hambo says he has “a better explanation.” What could that be? He explains:
We find billions of fossils of sea creatures literally everywhere — from the tops of mountains to completely landlocked prairies. This phenomenon means that at one point the entire globe had to be covered with water. [The whole globe!] Evolutionists typically appeal to shallow seas or something similar at various stages throughout history. They certainly wouldn’t say that this happened all at once. But the Bible tells us otherwise.
Ooooooooooooh! What does the bible say? Hambo tells us:
The Bible describes a world-destroying global flood. [Gasp!] It would’ve ripped up miles of sediment, redepositing it in layers, trapping and burying organisms in those layers. And, of course, since this was primarily a marine catastrophe, the majority of the fossil record is made up of marine creatures.
Wowie — that explains everything! Hambo continues:
Well, you can discover some of these fossilized marine creatures yourself on a paleontological adventure [Link omitted.] with geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling and paleontologist Dr. Gabriela Haynes [AIG creation scientists], September 7, 2019.
The rest is all about that grand intellectual adventure which awaits you, dear reader. If you’re interested — and who wouldn’t be? — then click over to Hambo’s blog for the details.
Meanwhile, we have to adjust our thinking to accommodate the fact Ohio is proof of the Flood. This won’t be easy, but it’s the only way to avoid the Lake of Fire.
