"Here’s how to understand the Creation Museum: Imagine, if you will, a load of horseshit."
10 years ago
Science is going to have to do a lot better than "logic" and "reason" to win my heart and mind -- otherwise those nifty dioramas are going to win right quick.
"A total of 250,000 visitors on November 2, 2007." "75% of the contributions averaged around $100 per gift."
Looks like a real money spinner.
I can't stop thinking about all the people that $27 million could have fed, clothed, educated, and medicated.
educate them, TUM!
It kind of looks like a really boring museum for 19.95. And, of course, retarded. But boring, first and foremost.
This museum is like a cargo cult. "If we have some glossy placards and dioramas, like you get in science museums, people will believe us instead of them!"
What's the old line? Reading
doesn't make a person Communist, but because one is Communist, one reads
SOunds like something a damn pinko Commie would say.
Don't be hatin' on my socialized-medicarin' home.
I demand animatonic Minoans playing with Dimetrodons!
The only way I would ever go to a museum like this is either kitsch value, the ability to mock it quietly with my companions, or both. However, I saw this beautiful animated commercial, animals in a forest and so on, on TV a few months ago. Imagine my consternation at the end of the spot when I learned it was for the Creation Museum (which is a few hours away from me). I don't think I've seen the spot since, but it
worth seeing if you like pretty animations.
Oh, ha ha ha - you can watch the commercial on the museum's website, or you can
watch it... on... GodTube
. (*sigh* - of
This just makes me shake my head in appreciation of how full of wonder is the world. Which is ironic in a sense...
Is Dave here?
You got the stuff?
Highlights From the New Peer-Reviewed Creation Science Journal
Bah. What a load of crap. Surely there must be a joke in there somewhere.
What do you call a convention of creation scientists? A revival! Please pass the snakes.
lol! By coincidence I've just finished reading "Monkey Girl - evolution, education and the battle for America's soul". It's about the Dover, Pennsylvania intelligent design trial. What a great read. The school board in Dover got took over by a bunch of creationists and they essentially make huge fools of themselves. Michael Behe appears on the witness stand and basically collapses under cross-examination.

Jesus sent Darwin, then he sent Godwin.

The evolution of Creationism
Insist That People Coexisted With Dinosaurs…and Get an A in Science Class!
Sounds like a very marketable skill in today's society...
Just give free thinking a chance. for example, I got a bad grade in anthropology for saying
monkeys have culture.
The readings even included research to back up my claim, in that food preferences changed first among the young capuchin monkeys before affecting the moms, and finally the old guard males. Like with humans. But the prof insisted on his definition: that only humans have culture. I'm not against evolution though. Just for dissent if it can be backed up.
The evidence may be on the moon.
