This one was found 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. It’s titled Letter Sent to AiG Highlights Incredible Accomplishment, and it was written by ol’ Hambo himself. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
We recently received a letter at the AiG ministry that I thought I would share with you. It’s a letter from a mom, Jennifer Campbell, who hopes to visit the Ark Encounter someday. [A great ambition!] She wrote us because she’s very proud of her daughter Caroline for an incredible accomplishment she finished last year: [What was it?] Caroline has written out the entire Bible by hand, “word for word, book by book”!
Wowie! For the moment, your Curmudgeon is stunned. But we must go on. Hambo says:
The mother shares that it took her daughter ten years to finish writing out the Bible [Gasp!] and that “we have researched and have found only a handful of people who have done this and none with a disability.” (Caroline has Down Syndrome.)
After that he tells us:
Caroline’s incredible feat has been written about in a variety of places, including the newspaper clipping her mom sent to us:
A copy of the newspaper article is embedded in Hambo’s post. Among the wonders revealed therein is the fact that:
Over nearly ten years, the plucky twenty-eight year old from Beaufort filled 43 plastic binders with 10,493 pages of note paper displaying her crisp penmanship.
More than ten thousand hand-written pages? Your Curmudgeon is in shock! Hambo gives us a few bible quotes, and then finishes with this:
It’s wonderful to see someone who has put so much time and effort into writing out God’s Word. What a great way to slowly study through Scripture, meditating on the truths found in it, from Genesis to Revelation.
Your Curmudgeon is overwhelmed! What’s your reaction, dear reader?
