Day at the Museum

Scientists study foes' ways at Creation Museum

Scientists are visiting the 'Creation Museum' in order to learn how they are portrayed:

...The real purpose of the museum visit is to give some of my colleagues an opportunity to sense how they're being portrayed," said Arnold Miller, a professor of paleontology at the University of Cincinnati, which is hosting the conference. "They're being demonized, I feel, in this museum as people who are responsible for all the ills of society...


I'm glad he used the term 'demonized'. That's the way most Dominionists and Eliminationists characterize anyone who does not subscribe to their myopic world view.

Oh man, the Noah's Ark story always gets me. There's no way all the species in the Earth could've fit in a boat! Even if they did, they would've eaten each other, fought etc. Some wouldn't even have been able to live in a man-made environment. But silly me, God can do anything--especially when it occurred thousands of years before anyone was around to witness it! But ask him today for a freakin' parking space--and I'm shit outta luck!

Yeah, the Ark would have to behave like Dr.Who's Tardis. Heh! But it's good for scientists to go there and get a dose of how they are perceived by the Jesus Camp gang.

We should tell them that the myth of the Ark was originally Pagan, and Noah was called Utnapishtim, whereas Nuah is the name of a Babylonian moon goddess. Then they'll have to abandon it, cos they can't have anything Pagan in their religion!

@Riverwolf: didn't you know, there was a Giant Room for Poo on the Ark? Eddie Izzard says so. Also, the dogs lined up along the side so Noah (who was played by Sean Connery) could get their ears to flap in the breeze. And the ducks were unfazed by the whole thing of course. And the fish - well obviously the angler fish and the coelacanth show that the evil scary fish were not drowned in the Flood ;)

(In case you were wondering, God was played by James Mason.)
