Hey, Hey — Hambo in the UK — Update

We remember how thrilled you were a month ago when we wrote Hey, Hey — Hambo in the UK, so we know you’ll be even more excited by the latest from Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.

This just appeared on Hambo’s blog at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Register Today for UK Creation Mega Conference October 24–26, and Brunch with Ken Ham October 28. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

In just a few short days [Ooooooooooooh!], I am headed across the pond for our annual UK Creation Mega Conference, October 24–26, 2019. In West Midlands, I’ll be speaking on Genesis and the state of the church and culture, how we’re all one race, and how to raise godly children in an ungodly world. And it’s not too late for you to join me and the other apologetics speakers as we “contend for the faith.”

Wowie — it’s just a few days away! Then he says:

As a lead up to this conference, Dr. Jeff Zweerink from Reasons to Believe and I debated issues regarding the book of Genesis, the age of the earth and the universe, death before sin, the days of creation, and much more on Premier Christian Radio in the United Kingdom. You can watch the debate here: [Video embedded in Hambo’s post].

And that’s not all! Hambo tells us:

Registration to our three-day event is still open, but you’ll want to register right away. [Oh yeah!] This Mega Conference is sure to be a wonderful time of equipping, encouraging, and fellowshipping. [Fellowshipping!] You’ll also hear from Dr. Georgia Purdom of AiG–US. We will be joining our AiG–UK team, including general manager of AiG–UK, Simon Turpin, Professor Andy McIntosh, Professor Stuart Burgess, as well as Dr. Voddie Bauchum Jr., Dr. Stephen Lloyd, Professor Steve Taylor, and Paul Garner.

What a bunch of intellectual giants! Hambo continues:

You can find a full schedule on the events page of our website. [Link in Hambo’s first paragraph, above.] Some of the topics being covered by this group of experts include:

• Sex or Gender: Which Did God Create?
• Dinosaurs: New Insights from Creationist Research
• The Genetics of Adam and Eve [Wowie!]
• Refusing to be Silent on Biblical Creation
• And more! [Ooooooooooooh! More!]

Overwhelming, isn’t it? Let’s read on:

Make plans to join us for this faith-building conference designed to help you “contend for the faith” in a culture increasingly hostile to the truth.

The rest is about a couple of post-conference events Hambo has planned, and we know you’ll click over there to learn about them. You don’t want to miss this thing, dear reader. It’s the most important event to happen over there since the Battle of Hastings!

  1. I sincerely doubt that “creationist research” can add any useful insights about dinosaurs. Green screen Annie? And as for the genetics of Adam and Eve. did the creationists find DNA in their bones?

  2. Sounds like a conference AG Bill Barr would be comfortable attending after his diatribe at ND.

    “The genetics of Adam and Eve.”

    Does this mean they’ve found a gene for sin?

    “Professor Andy McIntosh, Professor Stuart Burgess, as well as Dr. Voddie Bauchum Jr., Dr. Stephen Lloyd, Professor Steve Taylor, and Paul Garner.”

    So, 3 professors, 2 Dr.’s, and one Paul Garner. A bit of a loser in the credential wars, eh, Mr. Garner? Is Ham trying to make a point?

  5. Karl Goldsmith

    That debate posted on youtube last month, is just two creationists arguing about the age of the earth. Who the hell wants to watch two idiots.

    He wrote: The New Creationism: Building scientific theories on a biblical foundation with a forward by Snelling.

    His claim is that the Bible is a complete never changing package of truth whereas science is an incomplete ever changing package of human failings except when it supports the Bible then it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread.

    Paul Garner has an MSc in geoscience from University College London, where he specialized in palaeobiology.

    This seems to be the only reason as with two years ago that he is included when AiG is in the UK. He is doing the “Dinosaurs: New Insights from Creationist Research”
