First it was the Discovery Institute — see Discoveroids Have Big News for Darwin Day. Now 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: A “Darwin Day” Challenge for Creationists and Evolutionists. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
February 12, the birthday of Charles Darwin, is recognized by many evolutionists as “Darwin Day.” Well, that’s right around the corner, and I have a challenge for both creationists and evolutionists on this “Darwin Day.” [Oh goodie — a challenge!] For evolutionists — here’s your challenge. Download (or order a physical copy) of the powerful book, Replacing Darwin, by a scientist with a PhD from Harvard University, Dr. Nathaniel Jeanson.
We’re ignoring the links in that paragraph because we discussed Jeanson and his book a couple of weeks ago — see Hambo Presents The Latest Creation Research. Now Hambo says:
You may be wondering why someone with a PhD from such a prestigious school as Harvard is a creationist! Well, he has very good reasons — and that’s why I am challenging you to read his book. I think you will be quite surprised by what you read. It’s probably not what you’re expecting!
No, dear reader, you won’t be surprised. It’s what you’d expect from a home-schooled youth — see The Mind of Nathaniel Jeanson. Hambo tells us:
You see, in my experience (and Dr. Jeanson says the same thing), most evolutionists don’t actually know what modern creationists believe. [They believe that science leads to the Lake of Fire.] Instead, they have a rather archaic view of creation and don’t understand that creationists actually make testable scientific predictions based on models! [BWAHAHAHAHAHA!] That’s the gold standard of science, and creationists do that! Replacing Darwin lays out one of those predictions and also shows some serious problems with evolutionary ideas, particularly in the field of genetics.
In our earlier post about Jeanson’s book we quoted Hambo making the same claim about creationism’s scientific predictions, but — like now — we were never told what those predictions are. Anyway, he continues:
But don’t just take my word for it [No problem!] — check out the evidence for yourself. I challenge you, in honor of Darwin’s birthday, to challenge yourself to read Replacing Darwin and consider its claims.
You wanna read the book, dear reader? Go right ahead. Then tell us what you’ve learned. Meanwhile, let’s read on:
For creationists — here’s your challenge. You still have time to order copies of Replacing Darwin from our online store and have them arrive in time for “Darwin Day.” [But you gotta hurry!] I challenge you to order a few copies to hand out to evolutionists you may know. [Groan!] Please give them the same challenge I gave my evolutionary readers. Then, pray that the truth of God’s Word will impact their hearts and that the Holy Spirit will give them eyes to see.
If Hambo has evidence that evolution is wrong and creation is right, he won’t need Yahweh to intervene. The evidence alone will be sufficient. And now we come to the end:
You can find Replacing Darwin at AnswersBookstore.com. [Link omitted.] It is a revealing look at natural selection, genetics, and Darwinian evolution.
Okay, dear reader, now let’s get serious. Do you have the courage to accept Hambo’s Darwin Day challenge? Then go for it!
