The Ark Park has come to my attention. And in that, I noticed that they are actually going to have unicorns – UNICORNS – in the ‘exhibit’. Unicorns. As any former KJVO’er would know, the KJV has unicorns because it mistranslates re’em following the Greek, and not the Hebrew.
KJG Deuteronomy 33:17 His glory is like the firstling of his bullock, and his horns are like the horns of unicorns: with them he shall push the people together to the ends of the earth: and they are the ten thousands of Ephraim, and they are the thousands of Manasseh.
NLT Deuteronomy 33:17 Joseph has the majesty of a young bull; he has the horns of a wild ox. He will gore distant nations, driving them to the ends of the earth. This is my blessing for the multitudes of Ephraim and the thousands of Manasseh.”
Proving that Young Earth Creationists are still holding to the KJV (among other outdated data sets), Ken Ham (the modern day John Tetzel) has promised that unicorns (and dragons) will be in the Ark Park.
And then, in what I believe is rather childish behavior, uses a toy Sauropod dinosaur (and compares it to the bathtub Ark he says ‘IS’ Noah’s Ark!) to mock the project–and then adds the mythical version of the unicorn as if this is what we at AiG believe! AiG has a number of articles going back years, where we speak against the ‘fantasy unicorn,’ and deal with the meaning of the word in a scholarly way: http://www.answersingenesis.org/articles/aid/v2/n1/unicorns-in-bible
At the above linked article, you will find the same mind-bending/numbing ‘intellectualism’ which brings us to the present situation in American Christianity. They end not with actual facts, but the advantageous argumentum ad ignorantiam,
To think of the biblical unicorn as a fantasy animal is to demean God’s Word, which is true in every detail.
In other words – if you say, “No Ken, there were no unicorns. The Hebrew based text doesn’t say unicorns, but wild oxes, among other verifiable proofs,” then you are ‘demeaning’ the Scriptures. It is not the Scriptures which you are disagreeing with – but Ken Ham. Don’t confuse the two. This is just one of the many examples of Ham’s methodology. It is poor – beyond poor.
Oh… and there be dragons too!
But, while there are unicorns and dragons (which they use poorer and hypocritical methodology to say are dinosaurs) there will not be the Nephilim.
