Get Down & Dirty with Hambo’s Creation Scientists

This is your big chance, dear reader. You’ve always wanted to go out into the woods with a bunch of creationists — and now you can do it! It’s all explained by Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo) — the ayatollah of Appalachia, the world’s holiest man who knows more about religion and science than everyone else.

The latest post at Answers in Genesis (AIG), Hambo’s creationist ministry, is titled Be a Paleontologist for a Day at Caesar Creek Lake, Ohio, October 2, 2021, and it was written by Hambo himself! Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

Adventure, excitement, and getting into the dirt [Wowie!]: that’s what you can expect with our upcoming Explore Day at Caesar Creek Lake, Ohio [Link omitted!], where you get to be a paleontologist for a day — and you get to take home what you find!

Ooooooooooooh! It’s everything you ever wanted! Hambo then says:

This event, taking place Saturday, October 2, 2021, is part of our popular Explore Days programs [Link omitted!] at the Creation Museum, but it’s open for adults and taking place off-site (about 60 miles from the museum) at one of the region’s most popular fossil-hunting sites.

Amazing, isn’t it? But wait — there’s more! Hambo he tells us:

You will be fossil hunting alongside Dr. Andrew Snelling, the geologist behind the new ground-breaking Grand Canyon research, and Dr. Gabriela Haynes, a PhD paleontologist actively involved in research.

What an honor it will be to hunt fossils with two of Hambo’s creation scientists! It’s almost beyond imagining! He continues:

Kids, ages 12 and up, can attend teaching sessions, too [Oh, how wonderful!], and will be able to ask questions, learning from two scientists with a biblical creationist worldview — where else can you find such an experience?

Verily, we are overwhelmed by such an opportunity. Who wouldn’t be? And now we come to the end:

Space is limited and will likely fill up quickly, so don’t miss out on this exciting experience. Register today at CreationMuseum.org. [Link omitted!]

Okay, dear reader — this event is only two weeks away, so get started on making your arrangements. It’ll be the experience of a lifetime!

    ‘HOW TO DO IT’

    KEN (mid-sentence): … but first, here’s Gabriela to tell you how to become a palaeontologist.
    GABRIELA: Hello Ken.
    KEN: Hello Gabriela.
    GABRIELA: Well, first of all take your Bible and pop yourself along to AiG’s Explore Day at Caesar Creek Lake and learn everything there is to know about palaeontology in one day, and then when the secular scientific community sits up and takes notice of you, you can jolly well quote the Bible and show them how to see everything from a biblical creationist perspective so they’ll get everything right and there’ll never be any confusion again.
    KEN: Thanks Gabriela, that was great.
    BODIE: Fantastic.

  2. Hey, I love to look for fossils. Ohio sound like it has some interesting examples. This sounds like a good place. I assume one can keep what one finds. One can always ignore the creationists on hand. And if it’s a n open park one doesn’t have to be with the creationists anyway.

  3. “This is a fish that drowned in the Flood.”
    “How does a fish drown?”
    “Say after me, “This is a fish that drowned in the Flood”.
    “That doesn’t make sense.”
    “You can hear only my voice. This is a fish that drowned in the Flood. Say it.”
    “This is… a …”
    “…fish that drowned in the Flood.”
    “… fish… that” Gulp. “Drowned in the Flood.”
    “Another soul saved to Jeezus!”
    “I feel so… liberated.”
    “You certainly have been.”

  4. @Dave Luckett
    Fresh water fish can die from being in salt water, salt water fish in fresh water. Would that be called “drowning”? In any case, Bible does not give us guidance about the fate of aquatic life in the Flood. Not that that determines what Bible devotees have to say.

  5. I would watch wikipedia’s “List of films considered the worst” before I would go field tripping with creation scientists. If I wanted to go field tripping with creationists scientists I would watch Avatar (2009) or Dune (2021) because those should be in the list but are not for some reason.

    Caesar Creek is open to the public for fossil collecting. It has been a bit picked over anytime I’ve been there. I hope this backfires on Ham. If the kids get interested in fossil collecting, they will eventually have to look at non-creationist information such as identification guides and more technical information.
