The entertainment never ends at the blog of Ken Ham (ol’ Hambo), the Australian entrepreneur who has become the ayatollah of Appalachia. He’s famed for his creationist ministry, Answers in Genesis (AIG) and for the mind-boggling Creation Museum.
We imagine that ol’ Hambo is once again red in the face, foaming at the mouth, and rolling around chewing the carpet. He just posted Scoffers Running Scared! BWAHAHAHAHAHA! What a title!
It’s about his Ark Encounter project, a religious theme park under construction in northern Kentucky. This time he’s enraged at some unfavorable press coverage in Australia. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
You just have to shake your head, remember we are in a spiritual battle, and pray for the scoffers — and also remember they are not really scoffing at us, but scoffing at their Creator God who tells us [scripture reference].
Yes, the scoffers aren’t scoffing at Hambo, they’re scoffing at God himself! Sometimes it’s difficult to tell the difference. Then we’re told:
This headline appeared in an Australian news source (PerthNow) on July 23rd (ironically, while I am still in Australia): “Aussie behind bizarre and ‘scary’ life-size replica of Noah’s Ark.”
BWAHAHAHAHAHA! They said Hambo’s project was “bizarre,” and they ran that story while Hambo was in Australia. How insulting! What else did they say? Here’s one brief excerpt from the Australian article:
Those behind the project have been frequently mocked with some calling the creationist idea – set to feature dinosaurs alongside Noah and his animals – “scary”. While such ostentatious displays of the Christian faith might be expected in America’s bible belt, it’s actually an Australian ex-pat who played an instrumental role in the project.
How disrespectful! Let’s return to Hambo’s article:
At first I thought I was reading a tabloid — but this supposed news source is owned by News Corp Australia. It was started by the Australian Sunday Times in 2006 as an online local news source. News Corp Australia seems to own most of the major newspapers in Australia, including quite a few other media outlets and brands.
Gasp! News Corp Australia is a Rupert Murdoch company — just like Fox News. How could they write such an article? Hambo continues:
You see, the life-size Noah’s Ark project is “scary” to those who scoff at God’s Word. And based upon the focus of the article and utterly poor reporting with made up diatribe against the project, I really wonder if it is the author Nick Wigham who is scared. If these scoffers do not change their ways as I pray that they do, they should really be scared of the fact that one day they will have to bow their knee to God who created them: [scripture reference].
Aha, that explains it. The journalist is afraid. Here’s more:
Just as in Noah’s day, when God shut the door to the Ark the judgment came, so one day in the future God will shut the “door” to our “Ark,” the Lord Jesus Christ, and then the final judgment will come. I’m sure when the scoffing world in Noah’s day saw the door to the Ark shut and then the Flood began — they were running scared. Those who continue to scoff should be running scared, as they will have to face the God of the creation one day: [scripture reference].
Those responsible for such an outrageous news story will end up in the Lake of Fire. Moving along:
My conclusion is that these scoffers are running scared — scared that Christians will be able to practice the free exercise of religion, and tastefully and professionally challenge people concerning the truth of God’s Word.
Are you one of those frightened scoffers, dear reader? Hambo understands your motivation. One last excerpt:
The exciting news is that the life-size Noah’s Ark is well advanced in construction and will open sometime around the middle of next year (2016).
The rest of Hambo’s post is puffery about his Ark project. We’ve seen it all before. And so we leave ol’ Hambo, probably still rolling around on the floor in rage. Why can’t the great man get any respect?
