Hambo’s Videos Have Had Thirty Million Views

This may be the best news we’ve ever seen 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. In fact, it may be the most amazing news we’ve ever seen anywhere!

Hambo’s new post is titled Answers in Genesis YouTube Channel Hits 30,000,000 Views! Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:

What a milestone! Our Answers in Genesis YouTube channel — which features thousands of videos to help Christians defend their faith and to challenge unbelievers with the gospel message — recently reached 30,000,000 views! [Gasp!] Praise the Lord! Think of all the people being impacted by these powerful videos.

Ooooooooooooh! Thirty million views! Think of all the drooling creationists who found satisfaction at Hambo’s YouTube channel. Aren’t you thrilled? Then Hambo displays his modesty:

We give God the glory for bringing so many people, from all around the world, to our channel to learn his truth. I also want to thank two different groups:

Who are the two groups? He tells us:

1. Our incredible staff! We could never do what God has allowed us to do without the dedicated and talented staff he brings to us. A huge “thank you” to the many teams and individuals involved with our YouTube channel, including video production, content creation, editing, uploading videos, social media, graphic design, and more.

Hooray for Hambo’s incredible staff! Who else does he want to thank? He continues:

2. Our generous donors. Your generosity to this ministry enables us to continue producing top-quality content that reaches millions and millions of people around the world. Thank you for faithfully giving to this ministry. The Lord has multiplied and blessed what you’ve given.

Hambo’s donors must be thrilled beyond description. Are you one of them, dear reader? Well, good for you! Here’s our last excerpt from Hambo’s splendid post:

Thirty million views — wow! Praise the Lord for what he’s done.

Your Curmudgeon is impressed. Hambo is way ahead of us. This humble blog has no staff and no donors, which is probably why — although we’ve had millions of views — the number isn’t even close to thirty million.

Hambo, the Curmudgeon salutes you!

  1. I just became the 30,000,001st visitor. Wtf – all comments are turned off?!
    What does that mean?

  2. I’d like to point out that more than a third of those views were from his videos with Bill Nye where Ham looks foolish. He has four videos that have over a million views and two feature Nye. 30 million views isn’t that big of a deal for a channel that is seven years old.

    “The Lord has multiplied and blessed what you’ve given.” I’ve always wondered what the hell that means. Ham is probably the biggest beneficiary of the misguided generosity of misguided flock. Yes, Jesus saves but Moses invests.

    hans435 What it means is that the channel owner turned the comments off. Nobody is allowed to comment on Ham’s videos. If the few other creationist channels on YT that allow comments are any guide, most comments would be versions or iterations of “Praise the Lord!”. But there would certainly be expressions of dissent as well, and maybe even cogent and reasoned opposing arguments, although I admit that those are rare on YT. Nevertheless, deleting all opposition as soon as it appears is tedious and time-consuming, so Ham doesn’t bother with it.

    Ham looks foolish in the Nye videos, and only lurching droolers fail to see it. But that, of course, is not the point. The lurching droolers are Ham’s audience. They keep him in the manner to which he has become accustomed. Maybe Ham would like to have a wider audience, but there are problems with that. It involves moving into demographics that are nothing but trouble. People who might think for themselves, for instance.

    No, best to pick only the low hanging fruit. Thirty million views. If only ten million of them are genuine marks, that’s enough for Ham Enterprises to prosper. And that’s enough for Ken Ham. For now.

  5. Is Ham’s YouTube channel monetised?

  6. We give God the glory for bringing so many people

    Passive aggressive self-glory disguised as God glory. Aw shucks God chose little ol’ them.

    PT Barnum was right, except he completely underestimated.
