Hambo Has a Thrilling Story

If you are one of those wretched, hell-bound secularist types — the sort who believes in Darwinism — you probably won’t appreciate this post 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), his creationist ministry: “We Read Your Book Dinosaurs of Eden … by the End … He Was on His Knees”. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

I recently heard from a mother thanking me for the impact our gospel-centered resources have had on her family, particularly her young son who surrendered his life to Christ after reading Dinosaurs of Eden, one of the children’s books I have written.

A children’s book had that effect? Amazing! Here’s a link to Hambo’s bookstore where you can buy the book: Dinosaurs of Eden. Then he quotes the mother’s letter:

For several years now it has been on my heart to thank you for your faithfulness in boldly proclaiming the truth. [Ooooooooooooh! The Truth™!] Our family has been greatly impacted by your ministry in many ways but one in particular I am compelled to share.

We have four children who have heard the gospel since birth. When our son, K, was seven years old, we read your book Dinosaurs of Eden — it was like watching a lightbulb switch on in him. Suddenly it all made sense to him and by the end of the book he was on his knees, surrendering his heart to Jesus!

Ooooooooooooh! Her seven year old son was on his knees! Isn’t that wonderful? Her letter goes on:

The Holy Spirit used this book to bring understanding, conviction, repentance, and trust. What deep joy to witness! I cannot thank you enough for this gift that so clearly articulates God’s great plan of redemption.

What could be greater than watching a seven year old boy repenting? Her letter gushes on a bit longer, and then Hambo shows us a letter the boy sent, now that he’s 13 years old. You can click over there to read it if you like, but it may be sufficient to know that the boy hasn’t changed his mind. He’s still a believer!

Here’s more from Hambo:

We love hearing from individuals and families who have been impacted for eternity because God has chosen to use this ministry in such a powerful way. All the glory goes to God and his Son for the fruit we’ve seen over all these years! This is what the ministry is all about!

Yup, that’s what it’s all about. Way to go, Hambo!

  1. “We love hearing from …..”
    I doubt it – the impact this story had on me is contemplating if Richard Dawkins was right after all. Religious upbringing can be child abuse indeed. That’s how I’ve been impacted – would Ol’Hambo really love to hear from me?!

  2. Yep, if the church and Hitler taught us anything hook the rubes while they are young.

    Dinosaurs of Eden is the Ken Ham book that shows people riding dinosaurs.

    “I don’t know where people get the idea that people rode dinosaurs.” Ken Ham

  4. Ham is a preacher…his lips are moving….he’s lying!

    It’s always a thrill when some snot-faced Christian punk starts yelling “JESUS H TAP DANCING CHRIST, I HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT!!!” and proceeds to cartwheel down the church aisle.

  6. “Now Jr., we want you to read this book and make a fair and balanced evaluation of what it presents, even knowing that if you don’t believe it you will rot in Hell, and never get to see Mommy and Daddy in Heaven after we die”.

    There, found the part that they left out of those details.

  7. Hambo created a future climate science, gun safety, evolution denying scientific illiterate who will spend his/her life being willfully ignorant?? Hallelujah…

    The idea of a parent telling their 7 year old child that he must repent for his sins is revolting. Richard Dawkins was right, this is clearly child abuse. Also, what happens if this kid actually learns something about what real scientists have to say about dinosaurs and realizes that his mother lied to him when he was a small child.

  9. Dinosaurs are hot on Ken’s website. The store gives you a selection of 41 goodies and the website shows 2769 hits.
    Who needs the Bible when ‘Dinosaurs of Eden’ does the job.

  10. But what of the dinosaur? It didn’t sin (I assume), so did it flutter off into the great sky after it passed away? And the same for its kin and kind?

  11. Not to be confused with
    The Dragons of Eden
    By Carl Sagan

  12. Ham forgot to say that the kid was an atheist before “finding the light dark” to give it that creationist seal of authenticity.

  13. My mother should have written a letter like that to Ed Sullivan, for showing me the Beatles when I was eleven:
    “— it was like watching a lightbulb switch on in him. Suddenly it all made sense to him and by the end of the book show he was on his knees off to his bedroom playing his guitar!”

    It reminds me of how often little donnie trump said things like “I hear all the time how awful XYZ is”. Does anyone believe it?

  15. Selling hard core righteousness and hypocrisy is big business and hambo-mambo has his finger on the pulse of this mass ignorance. big bucks…..

    Another potentially good mind thrown down the sh%tt@r. Poor kids.
