You remember all the excitement about the creationist conference in the UK which was staged last year by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. Sure you do. We wrote it a couple of months ago — see Hey, Hey — Hambo in the UK — Update.
The thing must have been a roaring success, because ol’ Hambo is announcing another one. This just appeared on Hambo’s blog at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry: Join Us in the UK for Our World Religions Conference, October 30–31, 2020. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The United Kingdom, like much of the Western world, is a melting pot of cultures, peoples, and religions. How can Christians follow Christ’s command to share the gospel with others who have very different (even very foreign) views to us? [Just keep preaching, whether they like it or not!] Get equipped to boldly share the gospel with those of many different religious backgrounds at our World Religions Conference, taking place at The Kings Centre in Oxford, Oxfordshire, October 30–31, 2020.
Ooooooooooooh! If you go to Hambo’s conference, you’ll get equipped. Here’s Hambo’s website for the conference, with all the info you need about registration and pricing. He says:
This two-day event [Two days? Wowie!] features teaching from a variety of experts, including Simon Turpin, the director of Answers in Genesis–UK, and Roger Patterson, one of our curriculum writers (and a former Mormon) and a frequent guest on our Answers News live program. These Answers in Genesis speakers will be joined by Dr. James White, Dr. Jay Modha, Derrick Morlan, Dr. Alan White, and Dr. Nagy Iskander.
That’s a lotta names! One looks familiar. We wrote about Nagy Iskander two years ago — see Creationism in Scotland. He’s a friend of Hambo’s, known as “one of Europe’s most active creationists.” Getting back to Hambo’s post, he tells us:
Don’t miss this opportunity to be equipped to share the only message that truly saves — the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you’re nearby in the UK or Europe (or elsewhere!) register today [link omitted] to join us at this incredibly powerful event.
You gotta go, dear reader, if you wanna be equipped. Hambo continues:
This event helps show the phenomenally diverse aspects of the Answers in Genesis ministry. We are not just about the age of the earth or creation vs. evolution.
Wowie — Hambo is involved in diversity! Well, not that kind of diversity. Let’s read on:
We are an apologetics, biblical authority ministry. We are helping to raise up generations with a truly biblical worldview — so they will be able to contend for the faith in our ever-changing culture.
Ah, so that‘s Hambo’s version of diversity. Here’s the end of his thrilling post:
We try to keep on the cutting edge of the battles raging against God’s Word. That way, we can effectively equip Christians and challenge non-Christians as we proclaim the truth of God’s Word and the gospel.
Yup — Hambo stays on the cutting edge. You can usually find him there with his replica of Noah’s ark — except when he’s visiting the UK to teach those heathen The Truth™! We won’t delay you any longer, dear reader. You’ve got to start preparing for the big UK adventure.
