Hambo Explains Climate Change

One of the many wonderful things about Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else — is that he keeps us informed about all the vital issues of our time.

Look what he just posted at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: 51% of Young Americans Think the World’s Ending from Climate Change. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

Is our world on the precipice of doom? Well, over half of young people [link omitted] in America say “yes,” believing humanity’s future is in imminent danger due to climate change. According to a recent survey, 29% of all American voters believe it is “at least somewhat likely that the earth will become uninhabitable and humanity will be wiped out” within the next 15 years. And when you filter those results for age, just over half of voters under 35 believe this.

That would be the so-called Millennial generation. They’re so wise! Hambo says:

This doom-and-gloom outlook has real-life consequences in how people live their lives, vote, and make decisions, including when and if to have children. “Birth strikers” are increasing in number as young people fear to have children with the threat of climate change, climate refugees, famine, and drought breathing down their backs. [Gasp!] But is this panic warranted?

Tell us, Hambo! Is the panic warranted? He goes on:

Dr. Alan White [Who?] recently spoke on this topic at our Creation Museum. His talk was broadcast live over YouTube as part of our Creation Museum Live! [link omitted] livestream series (airing every Thursday at 12 noon ET). I encourage you to watch it and equip yourself to think biblically and critically about this issue: [Podcast embedded in Hambo’s post].

Alan White is one of Hambo’s creation scientists. Here’s AIG’s bio info on the guy. Hambo continues:

Climate change is such a massive issue, especially for young people, that we’re hosting a special conference [link omitted] this spring to tackle the question. Taking place the week of Easter (April 9–12), and culminating in a moving sunrise service Easter morning, this conference will look at physical and spiritual climate change.

Ooooooooooooh! They’re going to talk about “spiritual climate change.” How wonderful! Let’s read on:

You’ll be equipped with answers to combat the panic sweeping through our culture, pointing people toward the hope of the gospel [Yes, oh yes!] and a perspective on supposed man-made climate change the mainstream media won’t give you!

You gotta go, dear reader! Mark your calendar for this amazing event. Here’s another excerpt:

I urge you to make plans to attend this conference. Bring your teenagers, college students, and other young people — they especially need to hear the truth [Ooooooooooooh! The Truth™!] on both physical and spiritual climate change that will be presented by Dr. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance, Ray Comfort of Living Waters, me, and many others. Register today. [Link omitted.]

Verily, it’s a gathering of intellectual giants! Now we come to the end:

And remember: “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease” (Genesis 8:22).

You gotta go, dear reader. And when you sign up, tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya.

  1. “summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease”
    For the first I suggest Ol’Hambo to visit some tropical countries. For the second he may visit either the North or the South Pole.
    What surprises me is that Ol’Hambo, with all his rants about the sinful nature of Homo Sapiens and his expecting of the Apocalypse doesn’t explain climate change in such terms. But of course compared to the briliant mind of a giant like the Ayatollah of Appalachia understand nothing.

  2. He’s right in part. Total human extinction through climate change is unlikely, although a reduction in the planet’s carrying capacity, which would be rather uncomfortable, may well be on the cards.

    The DI also trashes climate change science, albeit for different ostensive reasons

  3. Charles Deetz ;)

    A dangerous side effect of creationism. And, I’ll make a comparison …

    Only a few are willing to be “white nationalists”, but many are willing to be in the cult of Trump.

  4. Michael Fugate

    As if creationists weren’t promoting the “Left Behind” nonsense?

  5. Quick, somebody send the ayatollah a high school chemistry book, and maybe one on physics too,

  6. 51%? As usual, I think Kens numbers are way too low…. 🙂

  7. FrankB, God is rather specifically talking about the area around Israel in that case so, yeah, He’s right. Shockingly, it’s the creationist who messes this one up.

  8. @Jim Roberts: “God is rather specifically talking about the area around Israel in that case”

    Of course he is. He can’t talk about areas whose very existence he knows nothing of. I believe FrankB is well aware that Ham cares nothing for the text as it was understood by its author and his contemporary readers.

  9. “Sensus plenior is a Latin phrase that means “fuller sense” or “fuller meaning”.[1][2] It is used in Biblical exegesis to describe the supposed deeper meaning intended by God but not by the human author. Walter C. Kaiser notes that the term was coined by F. Andre Fernandez in 1927 but was popularized by Raymond E. Brown.[3]”
