Thanks to Matt D. for pointing this one out.
"PETERSBURG --Tyrannosaurus rex was a strict vegetarian, and lived with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.
This brings whole new meaning to the term "Vegan with a Vengeance" (which is a great cookbook, by the way). Seriously, though... t-rex was a vegetarian? Was he strict vegan,...or was he one of those pansy-ass "I eat tofu, therefore I am vegetarian." types?
"There were dinosaurs of every kind aboard Noah's ark. Some dinosaurs managed to hang around until just a few hundred years ago. The legend of St. George slaying the dragon? That probably was a dinosaur.
Or, the whole damn concept might just be a LEGEND. Myth? A good story? See previous ark posts.
"Exhibits showing all this and more will be at the Creation Museum, a $27 million religious showcase nearing completion in Northern Kentucky.
Oh, but Christians really just want to save other humans and love thy neighbor...that $27 Million was for a good cause... if you consider keeping people undereducated a good cause. *dripping with sarcasm* What kind of exhibits do they have that prove creationism? Is there a laser-light show, ala Disney's Fantasmic (TM): wherein God's image is projected onto a fog of dry ice and fine mist...culminating in one big firework extravaganza. Maybe they spell out "God did it!" in sparklers or something? Come on! For $27 million, the proof better be there. Otherwise, they're just duping millions of Christians into spending their.... oh...hey... I get how this works now. I want to build a museum, too!!
"The museum, in Boone County near the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, is being built by a non-profit group called Answers in Genesis. It is scheduled to open on Memorial Day. Museum and Northern Kentucky tourism officials are expecting it to be a boon to the region, bringing in at least 250,000 visitors in its first year.
Well, the location is convenient. The can just have the guides stand out front and go "see...aren't the evolutionists silly? Do you think planes evolved? Or, are you smart enough to know that it was created by a creator?.", thereby committing logical fallacies every six minutes, daily, until the IRS shuts them down for tax fraud? Only in Kentucky could a museum sponsored by Answers in Genesis be considered a "boon" for tourism. *rolls eyes* Ok...well, maybe parts of Kansas would go for that.
"It already is getting media attention. Newspapers and television stations from Europe, Asia and Australia have visited, and CNN was there Friday.
Ooooooooh, media attention. What they fail to say is that the people from Europe, Asia, and Australia are going, "Those stupid-ass Americans are actually eating this shit up." What they fail to mention is that CNN was filming B-roll stuff of the airport. No "Faux News". yet?
"But mainstream scientists, who have dubbed it The Fred and Wilma Flintstone Museum, say the museum's message is just plain wrong.
How cool is that? See...scientists have a sense of humor. :) God is just the Grand Poobah of the Loyal Order of Water Buffalo.
The museum is based on a literal interpretation of the Bible: The world was created in six, 24-hour days, some time between 6,000 and 10,000 years ago. Humans appeared on Day 6, and they didn't evolve from anything.
Should be a quick tour. I'm imagining that scene, from the Simpsons, where Bart's class tours the office of the president of the cardboard box factory. "Everyone stay on the taped line and it will lead you around the desk and back out the door. Please, touch nothing!"
Ken Ham, an Australian who is Answers in Genesis' $120,000-a-year founder and president, says the museum opening will be a significant event in Christendom.
"No one else has ever built a place where you can experience biblical history and merge it with the science," he said.
Wow. I wonder what Hovind has to say about that? And, what about that place in Colorado? Seems to me that it's more like, "If you build it, they will come." Forget God... we've got Shoeless Ken Ham.
