"[The bible is] a book of history, you can trust it's science."
Is this because of the rigorous fact checking that the writers did? The peer review it underwent? I don't knock faith or spirituality, so long as you don't use it to "prove" anything.
Now to build the FSM Museum, complete with animatronic pirates and lifelike latex noodly appendages -- donations anyone?
amongst the vistitors, i'd like to know the proportion of the credulous to the stoned.
The "science of the Bible"? Adam and Eve (clothed, of course) and dinosaurs cavorting together? For realz? Awesome!!!
I'm still waiting for an explanation of how 240,000 species of flies, including 3,500 species of mosquitoes, were kept on the ark.
Imagine my horror when I found out that the Creation Museum was being built a ten minute drive away from my childhood home in Northern Kentucky. Despite having fled this land of flattops and fag-bashing years ago, some part of me will always be a Kentucky Boy, so the blow to my hometown was an unexpected blow to my own identity. I had always clung to my stories of awkward outcast teenage survival in a sometimes dangerous small town, yet suddenly that town seemed even smaller and more backward. I felt betrayed.
In visiting friends and family still in Kentucky, I've since learned that the museum location was chosen, not because the area is such a hotbed of creationism (though is has it's adherents), but because the Cincinnati Airport, located appropriately in Northern KY, is central throughout the Eastern U.S. for fundamentalist christians. I was relieved to find that mention of the museum was often met with scoffing and eyerolls by the locals.
Still, any trip back home reminds me why I left. Mark Twain once wrote that when the world comes to an end, he's going to move to Cincinnati and live for another two years. I can't help but think, if only you cross the river into Northern Kentucky, you just may live for another ten.
I'm still waiting for an explanation of where all that water went after the flood.
@2. I really, really wish that a stoned trip to this museum was not totally geographically unreasonable.
I never thought I would suggest burning a book ever but I could do it to the Bible and the Koran. Yeah, I could really see myself burning it. BTW, did you know a higher percentage of Atheists have read the Bible cover to cover than Christians?
Dinos on Noah's ark, it's like Ken Ham melded my two most favorite movies, Jurassic Park and Water World, into one! Me wanty converty! Me wanty converty!
