This is what you’ve been waiting for from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. It’s at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry. The title is Microraptor Discovered with Lizard in Its Belly. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The more scientists dig into the fossil record, the more exciting and surprising fossils they discover. Recently, scientists announced the discovery of a new species of lizard inside the stomach of what they call a microraptor, a type of supposed “gliding dinosaur” [Hambo’s scare quotes] (really, it’s a bird) from northeastern China.
Wikipedia has an article on Microraptor, the transitional species that Hambo insists is a bird. Anyway, for the latest discovery he links to this article in New Scientist: Unknown species of lizard found inside a gliding dinosaur’s stomach. Then he says:
It’s so well-preserved, they can tell the bird swallowed the lizard head first! The researchers believe these fossils were exquisitely buried during a series of volcanic explosions some 130 million years ago. But there’s a better explanation!
Ooooooooooooh! Hambo has better explanation! What could it be? He tells us:
This fossil is found in the same region that boasts remarkable fossils of stick insect — with the fragile wings still visible. Now, if this were the only region in the world where we find such exquisite fossils, we might be tempted to think this was just a one-off series of volcanic eruptions. But we find fossils that are incredibly preserved all around the world, in all levels of the geologic column.
Fossils all around the world in all levels of the geologic column? What could account for that? Hambo knows where to find the answer:
Rather than appealing to either slow-and-gradual processes or a series of small, localized catastrophes over many millions and millions of years [That’s for Darwinist fools!], it makes much more sense to view the geologic record, including the fossils, through the lens of the history in the Bible.
Yes — that makes infinitely more sense! Let’s read on — oh, wait. In the next excerpt, Hambo has some stuff in quotes, and at the end he attributes the quoted material to “my friend Buddy Davis’ song ‘Billions of Dead Things,’ available in our bookstore.” No doubt you want to click over there and buy a copy. Anyway, Hambo informs us:
You see, as I’ve said many times before [and Darwinists won’t listen], if there really was a global flood as described in Genesis, we’d expect to see “billions of dead things, buried in rock layers, laid down by water, all over the earth.” And that’s exactly what we see!
Ooooooooooooh! That’s what we see! And now we come to the stunning end:
This little bird and lizard are merely another example of catastrophic burial and remarkable preservation. This bird was buried catastrophically, just after finishing its lunch, during the global flood of Noah’s day only 4,350 years ago.
How much more evidence could you possibly want, dear reader? If you’re not a believer after this, then don’t complain about the fate that awaits you. You deserve to spend eternity in the Lake of Fire!
