Hambo Cancelled a Post — Now What?

This is a problem we never encountered before. We found something we could blog about at the website of Answers in Genesis (AIG), the creationist ministry of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.

The title of ol’ Hambo’s new post was 3 Reasons to Watch Answers for Women Online, but the link to it no longer works, and Hambo’s article is no longer there. When we tested our link before publishing (as we always do), we got something at Hambo’s website that said: “Sorry, that link is missing.” So apparently they decided to take it down. Now what do we do?

It doesn’t seem right to publish our post anyway, because we quote stuff that’s no longer there. So what do we do with it?

The conference was going to be in March, and the ladies could attend in person or on line. Hambo had an ark-load of speakers lined up for the thing. Now … Poof! It’s gone — and so is the post we were just about to publish. We even had our closing paragraph ready to go, which was this:

Ladies, what are you waiting for? Register today! And for the men reading this — now you know where all the great women will be, so we assume you can figure out what to do about it. And when you get there, tell ’em the Curmudgeon sent ya.

Ah well, all of that is what might have been. Now we’re converting this post into an unscheduled Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You know the rules. Go for it!

  1. FrankB’s link worked for me. I also got it by googling “Answers for Women”. I’ve even copied it no problem. They’ve reached their Covid attendance limit,but

    “You can also join us LIVE from your home or church. Preorder your digital conference experience today for just $69.99 through Answers TV and you won’t miss a single session.”

    SC, have you been rumbled? If so, you need to construct an alter ego

  2. Scientists solve the mystery of why wombats have cube-shaped poo

    So far they have only explained the how, not the why–but my guess is, wombats were given this singular ability by the Malevolent Designer (cursed be he!) in order to frustrate the efforts of our beloved dung beetles!

  3. The latest in Answers in Genesis is about the Australian lung fish. It has the largest vertebrate genome, 43 billion base pairs, far bigger than the human 3 billion. But the AIG essay is not interested in the size of the genome.

    Does anyone know of a good starter book on junk DNA. I am waiting for Larry Moran’s book but that is still a work in progress.

  5. In the AIG article mentioned by TomS there is a quote from Sweet Georgie P: “based on the unobservable past”.
    Well, you know, within a couple of minutes that AIG article also belongs to the unobservable past afaIc. Then I can claim that it defended evolution. It doesn’t, you say, as I can check myself? No, that won’t work. Because my claim was what the article wrote in the past – which is unobservable.
    Before I forget – where you there, when I read that AIG article?
    Checkmate, AIG supporter. Ol’Hambo has defended evolution in the observable past. Everything you bring up against this is nothing but “a nice-sounding, fictitious story”.

  6. Important creacrap news – I learned about at the Dutch YEC blog Logos.nl:


    Really, that site should keep us busy in times that creacrap news is lacking and our dear SC remains silent.

  7. @FrankB: Indeed! “Raise $150,000 for Dr. Steve Austin to build a quarter-mile flume for use in recreating sedimentary conditions during the Flood.”

    Who says they don’t do real science?

    My guess is by looking at the list of speakers I counted 3 key note male speakers, possibly four if Tommye is a man’s name. Also the promoting article is written by Hambo, who of course is a key note speaker as well: My idea is that the women at Answers may actually have complained, a feminist revolution if such a thing is possible at Answers.
    If I had the aged Hambo preaching at me, I might after years of hearing his patronizing dribble, be a little pissed off as well, after all, it is a ‘Women’s Conference’.
