That place is up near where my sister lives. She is a Christian and at one point wanted me to go see it with her. I saw a little bit about the dinosaur stuff on Religulous and when I described it to her even she admitted it was ridiculous. I just had to email her that link.

“I’m speechless,” said Derek E.G. Briggs, director of the Peabody Museum of Natural History at Yale, who walked around with crossed arms and a grimace. “It’s rather scary.”
I agree!

Quote:
Dr. Bengtson noted that to explain how the few species aboard the ark could have diversified to the multitude of animals alive today in only a few thousand years, the museum said simply, “God provided organisms with special tools to change rapidly.”

“Thus in one sentence they admit that evolution is real,” Dr. Bengtson said, “and that they have to invoke magic to explain how it works.”
And isn't that typical... the old "god did it" arguement with ZERO factual evidence to back the claim.

I want to know, if god is real and can do such miraculous things, why did he make people SO FRIGGIN STUPID?!?!?!

I live altogether too close to this thing. I was tempted to go check it out when I first heard about it but they charge like $22 bucks to get in and I do NOT want to give them my money.

They have a planetarium too... I wonder what that is like...

Instead of stars, they project a giant face with white hair and a long flowing beard!

It's funny but scary at the same time. The idea of a museum teaching all sorts of assumptions as "fact" is pretty scary to me, especially with the amount of people out there who will believe anything that they hear without giving any thought to it. It really shocked me to see that some Christian who went to visit the museum stated that schools should teach the crap that this museum is spreading!!! I don't blame the paleontologists for being pissed that their work is totally being discounted.

I don't know if anyone here follows the science blog Pharyngula, but they did a big trip to the museum last month with 285 science students. You can read about it here:

The Creation "Museum"

It's the next best thing to being there!

There was an episode of '18 kids and counting' where they visited the "museum" they showed quite a bit of what's inside. I was definitely hilarious! But totally scary, considering the Duggar's were teaching there children that it was real.

One of the good things is that what they teach is so patently false that some of the kids, given a chance at a good education, may be able to break free of the nonsense.

The Duggars, heh. I admit I watch their show, but only because it's like a bad trainwreck that you can't look away from. What I find really sad about them is that statistically, one of the kids is gay. Hello ostracism and conditioned self loathing! Hope their religion allows therapy 'cause some of those kids are gonna need it.
