Today we have even more evidence that there is nothing unknown to Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else. His latest post at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), his creationist ministry, is Do We Need “Economy-Wide Lockdowns to Halt Climate Change”?
Ol’ Hambo has posted about climate change before — see, for example: Ol’ Hambo Explains Climate Change. But today he really gets to the heart of the issue. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
If you want to understand the agenda of the radical climate change activists (and there are many in important political positions) and what will happen if they control the culture — read this opinion piece, We need to act boldly now if we are to avoid economy-wide lockdowns to halt climate change.
We didn’t read it because it isn’t necessary. Hambo will tell us what we need to know. He says:
These activists and politicians want to totally control your life, shut down the economy, and shut down your freedoms. [Gasp!] Life would never be the same again. Essentially, they worship the creation (Romans 1) and want the creation to have dominion over people — while they have dominion over those they can control.
Do you worship the creation, dear reader? You might, even without realizing it, so you should keep reading. Hambo tells us:
When people do not build their worldview on the true history of the world as given to us by God in the Book of Genesis [Ooooooooooooh! The Truth™!], they will make wrong decisions and hurt people. How should we apply a biblical worldview to this important question?
Hambo gives us three guidelines for applying a biblical worldview:
1. Man was given dominion over creation by God to use it for man’s good and God’s glory (Genesis 1:28).
2. Everything in nature is not “good,” as everything is groaning because of sin (Genesis 3; Romans 8:22). This means man should be looking after the environment by doing such things as forest management to ensure forests don’t have a build-up of fuel that can allow destructive fires to occur.
3. They must understand Noah’s flood caused massive climate change, produced an ice age [Not biblical!], and has caused climate change ever since. Such change can occur quickly. And God promises in Genesis 8:22 that “While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.” So those radical politicians who claim man will destroy the earth in a few years are totally wrong.
He explains what all that means:
The point is, God has revealed to us in his Word that massive changes have occurred that affected this world: sin, the curse, the entrance of death, the flood, and so on. [That’s a lot of changes!] When politicians reject this history, they will make destructive decisions. Romans chapter 1 details what happens when people worship the creation rather than the Creator.
Hambo doesn’t give us a link to that scripture reference, but we’ll take his word for it that bad things happen when people don’t worship the way Hambo thinks they should. He continues — no, actually he’s done, and he ends his post with this:
Learn more about a biblical worldview of stewardship in Dr. Gordon Wilson’s book, A Different Shade of Green [Amazon link], or the current issue of our biblical worldview magazine, Answers. [Link omitted!]
That’s it. That’s the whole thing. Now you know the true story about climate change — thanks to ol’ Hambo.
