How many brain-warping clunkers can you find in this new post by 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: Firefighters Save Trees That Outlived the Dinosaurs . . . But Was That Millions of Years Ago? Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
Devastating wildfires have been burning throughout my home country of Australia for several months now. [We heard about it.] Firefighters and others have been working tirelessly, risking their lives, attempting to save people, homes, animals, and more from the fires. And one of the things they successfully saved was the only known grove of Wollemi pines — a species of tree I love talking about. Why?
He tells us why:
Well, this particular type of trees is believed by evolutionists to be older than the dinosaurs, according to secular dating. [Secular dating? Yuk!] They were thought to have been extinct a long time. That is until 1994, when an officer with the New South Wales National Parks and Wildlife Service ventured into a small canyon (the location is still a secret) and saw trees he didn’t recognize. Biologists later realized these were the trees believed to have gone extinct many millions of years ago. Yet they were alive and well in this small canyon.
Wikipedia has an article on Wollemia nobilis, which isn’t exactly a pine, but it’s close enough. To some extent, Ol’ Hambo is reasonably accurate so far — but it quickly gets wild. You’ll see. He says:
Amazingly (actually not at all that amazing when you think about it), the trees hadn’t changed in millions of years — they looked just like their fossil counterparts. I guess they must have forgotten to evolve — despite the massive changes that were supposedly taking place on earth at that time (such as the extinction of the dinosaurs).
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! There are trees all over the planet that are evolved descendants of the trees Hambo is talking about. Actually, his remarks are the same as asking: “Why are there still monkeys?” But hang on — it gets better. He tells us:
The Wollemi pine is a reminder that evolution is just a fairy tale. [Hee hee!] It didn’t happen! These trees are part of a kind created on day three of creation week. Many of them were buried during the flood just a few thousand years ago, but some survived and their progeny can be found growing wild in a secret location in Wollemi National Park.
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! He continues:
But since, to our knowledge, dinosaurs have indeed gone extinct since the flood [Groan!], these trees indeed outlived the dinosaurs! But only by a few millennia (or even a few centuries), certainly not by millions of years.
There’s a bit more to Hambo’s post, including some pictures he says he took of the trees, but we’ve already seen the good stuff so we’re leaving him here. Hey — did you count the clunkers? He included creation week, young Earth, recent dinosaurs, the Flood, fairy tale evolution, and what else? Let us know if we missed anything.
