With Answers in Genesis’ Ark Encounter set to open in just a couple weeks, CEO Ken Ham is busy planning the next way AiG can help people experience the historical reality of God’s judgments: the Elisha Encounter.
As Ham told Totally Legitimate News (TLN) reporters earlier this week, “The Ark Encounter is a great opportunity for people to experience God’s providence for His creations that he saved from the flood, and see how real the history in God’s word is. But I wanted to explore ways that people could better experience the terror of God’s judgment as well.”
Enter: The Elisha Encounter. Inspired by the prophet Elisha-directed mauling of 42 children as recorded in 2 Kings 2:23-25, the planned exhibit will include female bears that will roam the grounds of the Creation Museum and Ark Encounter, tearing up any AiG detractors who visit.
In a statement to TLN reporters, an AiG representative explained, “We can train the bears to respond to specific words and phrases with an attack. Of course, ‘Go on up, you bald-head’ will be in their vocabulary, but we don’t see why we can’t include other phrases like ‘Evolution is well supported by evidence’ or ‘Genesis may have been inspired by Ancient Near Eastern myths.’ That should keep all true Christians safe, while allowing the bears to target compromisers.”
AiG is well-known for censoring other Christians who disagree with AiG’s extremely literal interpretations of Old Testament stories. Usually that is done on their web media, but this new exhibit offers an opportunity to keep the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum safe from the presence of dissenting opinions.
When asked if Ham was at all concerned about his own safety with female bears on the loose, eating people, he jokingly replied, “Not at all! Bears don’t like Ham!”
And hey — can you blame them?
