Adam and Eve and Dinosaurs?!
« on: June 01, 2007, 06:04:14 PM »
The $27 million Creation Museum, a few miles south of Cincinnati, tells a biblical version of the Earth's history, asserting that the planet is just a few thousand years old and man and the giant lizards once coexisted.

Creation Museum = Stupid.

Hey, I live in Cincinnati, and if you saw most of the residents you'd realize that there' s no way evolution could be a beneficial process if these people have somehow improved upon the neanderthal example. :troll:  Seriously though, the greater Cincinnati tri-state area is one of the most conservative in the nation, although we did somehow elect Jerry Springer.  It's funny, the word liberal is still a dirty word here.

I saw a video on this the other day.  It really is very sad to hear it cost 10 million dollars to build.  It'll be less said when I burn it to the ground.

Yeah, I heard about this on NPR over last weekend. There's a nice little stint at the end of the museum that goes on about how abortion is a sin and is destroying humanity, an animatronic teenager browsing internet porn (totally serious here), and some other blatant Christianity-funded values.

I think I'll check it out next time I'm in Cincinnatti :ganishka:

$20 for an adult ticket?! That's highway robbery! I don't need to pay $20 just for someone to tell me the obvious truth!

I guess a bizarro museum like this might be funny to visit when you know what to expect, but I admit I'm a little bit taken aback by how far these people are willing (and able) to go...

I feel bad for Kentucky.  Every time they try to change their image into that of a pseudo-eastern, pseudo-midwestern state like Ohio, something like this happens.  Hey, at least they still have snake handlers.

I'm actually considering joining a few fellow students in protesting this thing (on behalf of the Jesuit understanding of Science and evolution), but I'll probably be too lazy to go through with it.

Read about this on ABCNews.
Quote
The Creation Museum, designed by the same man behind some of the attractions at Universal Studios in Florida, is a $27 million, high-tech sensory experience with animatronic dinosaurs and a movie theater with seats that shake.
no question about the target audience here.
But the best quote, and probably some sort of an award  :chomp: goes to:
Quote
"In an evolutionary world view, why should you have things like absolute morality? Why would it be wrong to kill someone?" said Jason Lisle, of Answers in Genesis. "I'm not saying that evolutionists aren't moral. I'm saying they have no reason to be moral."
I'm not sure that protesting this thing would do much good though, in the end it'll just create a lot of publicity.

In the same vein, did anyone see the nightline episode with Kirk Cameron & Ray Comfort debating the atheists?

Wow, maybe, just maybe, all the stories in the Bible aren't true, but were created for symbolic value. 

But personally I agree with Kierkegaard's assessment that to truly be a Christian you have to be completely trusting to the point of insanity.  So that if an "image" of god told you to build this horrendously stupid, expensive museum... you'd do it unquestionably, without knowing if you've truly lost your mind, and are merely praying to the ceiling fan.

Anyway if they were really trying to support the Bible... they'd build a Christian homeless center with all that money.  Anyway, saving people's lives gets people devoted to Christianity much easier than shoving "knowledge" down there throat.

Or, who knows, maybe senseless propaganda will save the world. Propaganda Power! the only force powerful enough to destroy the evil villains, "free will", and inquisitive thought.

That's wrong on so many levels, but considering it won't do anything to give it the ass-kicking it so rightly deserves... I won't break it down.

To me, a friend would never help my dream. Thats not something that anyone is compelled to do.  The reason for someone to live is to advance towards their own destiny. If theres someone who tramples over that dream.  He will stake his entire heart and soul and fight against that person.  Even if that person is me.

To me, I feel that a friend is someone who is my equal

Hey man, where are you getting this "science" from anyway? A book!? Just like the Bible, except your book wasn't written by GOD!

Funny memory on this topic, in high school there was a list of books we could do reports on, listed among them:


The Bible............................................ By GOD.


That's verbatim. =)

Hooray for a forum where nobody is committing the irony of hating/mistrusting completely reputable science over their internet connection.  Anti-evo's make my brain hurt.

Do you think if you got a bunch of people together, started a cult and made up a few bs ideas and theories, that they would build a museum for it?

I was thinking something along the lines of weird aliens and eating placenta, but the Scientoologists got there first, so I'm out of ideas.

I think all of Christianity's attempts to both belittle science AND use it for their own purposes is pretty...I dunno. Hypocritical?

Also this museum is some kind of insecurity compensator, like a tiny-peckered man driving a big diesel truck.

Just my thoughts on it on two hours of sleep.

Or a tiny-peckered, battered child with a big ass sword, but I'm not referring to anyone specific.  :guts: :guts: :guts:
