Do you know who is the greatest expert in all the world on the subject of climate change? It’s Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. He just posted this at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Should We Panic About the Climate? Get Answers at Our Easter Conference. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Panicking about the climate is nothing new — it’s been going on for decades (with few, if any, of the gloomy predictions coming true). But it’s recently been hyped to new levels. Younger people are promising not to have children. [Egad!] Scientists are again suggesting population control measures (we know that means the expansion of abortion, likely even forced abortions and sterilizations). [Really?] Politicians are suggesting radical, extremely costly environmental and economic policies. How should Christians think and respond to the perceived crisis?
Tell us, Hambo! How should we respond? He says:
We’ll be tackling this hot-button social issue at our Easter conference [link omitted], April 9–12, 2020. Learn from experts, including Dr. Calvin Beisner of the Cornwall Alliance, as they share research and thoughtful commentary on the subject of physical climate change.
We don’t know who he is, but Wikipedia has an article on the Cornwall Alliance, which tells us:
The Cornwall Alliance for the Stewardship of Creation is a conservative Christian public policy group that promotes the view that a free-market approach to care for the environment is sufficient, and is critical of much of the current environmental movement. In particular, the Cornwall Alliance rejects claims of global warming.
And that’s not all! Hambo will have others at the conference. He proudly informs us:
Others, including Ray Comfort, E.Z. Zwayne [president of Comfort’s ministry], and I, will be sharing on a different kind of climate change — the spiritual climate change throughout the West.
This conference will conclude with a beautiful sunrise service in the Answers Center, featuring a special message from Ray Comfort [Hee hee!] and worship led by Michael O’Brien. Then you can enjoy brunch at Emzara’s Buffet (located next to the Ark). This service was packed last year as many individuals from the community also joined us. We’re excited to be bringing it back again in 2020!
And we’re excited just reading about it. Hambo ends his post with this:
Register today — and be sure to bring your teenagers and young people! They need to hear the truth from God’s Word and a balanced perspective from science. (Churches, this is a wonderful opportunity to bring a youth group to the Ark Encounter and the nearby Creation Museum!). Register on the events page [link omitted] of our website.
You’ll going to the event, aren’t you? Of course you are! When you get there, tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya.
