It’s always good to hear from the creation scientists at Answers in Genesis (AIG). That’s the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.
Their latest post is titled Ape-Men, Adam, and the Gospel. The author is Dr. Terry Mortenson, who “holds an MDiv and a PhD in the history of geology. He has lectured in over 28 countries and formerly served for 26 years with Campus Crusade for Christ in the United States and in Eastern Europe. He now serves as an author, speaker, and researcher with Answers in Genesis.” Here are some excerpts from Terry’s post, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
How many times have you seen pictures showing a sequence of monkey-to-ape-to-man evolution? Evolutionists dogmatically claim that Lucy (the famous australopithecine), Homo erectus, Cro-magnon, Neanderthal man are our part-ape, part-human ancestors. They also tell us that the DNA of chimpanzees and humans is 98–99% the same. It’s a proven scientific fact, they constantly say.
That stuff must be very upsetting to folks like Hambo and his creation scientists. Terry says:
And those images and claims have been very effective. A 2017 Gallup poll revealed that 57% of Americans believe that we did evolve from less advanced forms of life over millions of years.
It hasn’t changed much according to the Gallup Poll Creationism Results for 2019. Terry tells us:
Although creationists and evolutionists look at the very same fossil and genetic evidence, they interpret that evidence very differently because of different starting assumptions. Creationists start with the eye-witness testimony of the Creator in Genesis. Evolutionists start with an anti-biblical, naturalistic (atheistic) worldview.
Creationists start with The Truth™, and evolutionists are all fools! Terry continues:
So, which view really fits the facts and makes sense of the evidence? [Can you guess, dear reader?] During my presentation at the 2019 Answers for Pastors and Christian Leaders conference, October 8–10, I will present compelling evidence that human evolution is a lie by:
• showing that “Lucy” was 100% ape [See Ken Ham Ain’t No Kin to Lucy];
• showing that Neanderthals were 100% human [See Hambo Says Neanderthals Were Fully Human];
• exposing revealing statements by leading evolutionists [quote-mining];
• illustrating the deceptive nature of evolutionist art [in contrast to religious art];
• explaining that human evolution is absolutely incompatible with God’s Word and that real science [i.e., creation science] confirms the literal, historical truth in Genesis about Adam and Eve;
• revealing why this issue matters enormously for the gospel and how it relates to the catastrophic, moral revolution in America.
That’s going to be a great presentation! Let’s read on:
Young people in particular have lots of questions about human origins. [Yeah, they wanna know about the birds and the bees.] I encourage you to come and glean solid scientific and biblical answers on this vital question so that the adults and kids in your church are not part of the 57% of deceived Americans.
Don’t be part of the deceived 57%, dear reader. And now we come to the end:
