This is your big opportunity to help 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: Help the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum Win “Best Religious Museum” 2020.
That’s right — Hambo wants you to help not only the infamous, mind-boggling Creation Museum, but also his exact replica of Noah’s Ark known as Ark Encounter. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
USA Today is featuring a “10 Best” contest for their “Reader’s Choice 2020,” and one of the categories is “Best Religious Museum” in the US. Twenty religious attractions are featured, and two you will probably recognize: the Ark Encounter and the Creation Museum, of course.
What a thrilling contest! If you click on that link (it takes you to the website of USA Today), you’ll see an amazing list of places one can visit. Hambo says:
We need your help to win! The “Reader’s Choice 2020” designations are decided by popular vote. As of the time of this blog posting, the Ark Encounter is sitting at number one and the Creation Museum at number four. We’d love to see the Ark and the museum finish first and second on the list. Please consider voting for your favorite attraction at this link
You will note, dear reader, that we’re including Hambo’s links. We want to make this easy for you. He tells us:
You can vote for one attraction every day [What?] from now until Monday, February 17, at noon Eastern Time. Voting is very easy; you don’t even need to fill in an email address. Just click on the word “vote” under the image of the Ark or the Creation Museum.
Hambo’s droolers are being told to vote for his tourist attractions over and over again — every day! That didn’t sound right, so we checked out the rules at the USA Today contest website. Those are the rules! They tell everyone to do it. Here are their official Readers’ Choice rules. They say, in bold font no less: “Limit one (1) vote per person, per category, per day.” So Hambo is just playing by the rules.
His post ends with this:
Please visit this link [see above] to vote daily [Yeah, daily!], and then be sure to share this contest on social media so your family and friends can vote as well!
Okay dear reader. Hambo wants your vote — or rather, your votes, so go ahead and give him what he wants. Or maybe you’ll want to vote for a different item on the list each day. Some of them look interesting. It’s up to you.
