Young earth creationists are in fact mentally retarded. They have no curiosity, no drive to understand the world around them, citing a book of bronze age myths as fact, while dismissing not only biology, but every discipline of science. How many great minds are stifled by this nonsense? They are nothing more than a dangerous cult of ignorance.

There has been speculation that the Ark Encounter project is in jeopardy, and Ham admits financing the project has been more challenging than anticipated. The project will now be built in phases and there has not been an official groundbreaking at the site, which was initially projected to open in 2014.

You mean building a giant boat supposedly meant to hold every single one of earth's creatures (from at most 4000 years ago), but has absolutely no practical use beyond looking at it, is in financial jeopardy? You're kidding me

I shouldn't be so amused by this, but the fact that some wackadoo who wants to build an ark replica is named Ham is some funny shiat.

I rode my triceratops to work this morning so I am getting a kick.

ftfa, in regards to the noahs ark project: Ham insists that the project is moving forward and said the $5 million in donations listed on the Ark Encounter is just a portion of the total fundraising effort.

sooo... yeah, if you six people who donated a million dollars each all read this together... yeah, that five million is just part of it. promise.

I am a triceratops denier. There was no such critter.

It was just a young torosaurus.
 
2012-07-10 03:20:10 PM  
so wait, if they build the life sized ark, does this mean if they can't fit one of every animal in the world on it that the ark story isn't real?
 
2012-07-10 03:21:01 PM  
When they realize just how big Noah's Ark actually had to be in order to hold all the animals, how come they don't say, "You know what? I think I'm going to look into this atheism thing I keep hearing about."

While most all scientists maintain dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years, Answers in Genesis teaches that the world is only a few thousand years old and dinosaurs roamed the Earth until very recently.

tlchwi02: so wait, if they build the life sized ark, does this mean if they can't fit one of every animal in the world on it that the ark story isn't real?


The excuse for that is "kinds"; there were only two of every "kind" of animal, rather than every modern species. The "kinds" just changed over time into all the modern species.

/But evolution is still fake, because Jesus.

Sadly, advertising in Sacramento makes sense, this place is rife with tribalists.

I wouldn't say that. I'm sure there are YEC scientists. Just none in relevant fields.

They're Job Creators.

Just think how many therapists are going to cash in on "My Mom made me think we were going to 'Jurassic Park' at Universal Studios in Orlando but we ended up at the Creation Museum. It was that very day, while I looked at a shoddily-built Adam and Eve with blond hair and blue eyes walking a velociraptor on a leash under a sign that said 'SCIENCE FACT!' that I said to myself 'You know, I'm hearing a lot of good things about Crystal Meth and how I can get some by renting out my orifices.'"

To be fair, the "Triceratops = Torosaurus" thing is pretty heavily disputed. Not like "Brontosaurus = Apatosaurus".

/Still think Brontosaurus is a better damn name.

I grew up down the interstate from one of the worst stylized efforts to create dinosaurs. Cabazon , California and the Wheel Inn Restaurant did more to ruin dinosaur actuality than anything ever. Until now.

FTA: While most scientists maintain dinosaurs have been extinct for millions of years, Answers in Genesis teaches that the world is only a few thousand years old and dinosaurs roamed the Earth until very recently.

A stunning example of shiat-quality journalism. If you're too lazy to explain which claims are true and which are fiction, it's time to find another line of work.

Just because someone claims something doesn't mean it deserves to be treated as though it were a valid theory.

He's saying they don't count because to hold those beliefs you have to reject all the tenets of science. A fair position. On the other hand this is America, and anyone can call themselves "scientist" or for that matter "reverend" without any relevant qualifications or beliefs. *waves flag*

In other news, not a whole lot of scientists actually believe (any more) that dinosaurs are extinct. Quite a few believe they can be observed flying around in your back yard right now. Just saying.

I love watching Road Runners for that very reason. They seem so dinosaur like, espcially since the moving away from the thought of what dinos looked like when I was a kid (70s) that had such odd notions on dinosaur stance, movement, etc.

The problem is that any jackass can call themselves a "scientist" regardless of their actual qualifications or their willingness to follow the scientific process.

Since they so vehemently deny science, surely they won't rely on any of its discoveries in their "museum", right? Things like electricity, lighting, computers, speakers, display screens, plastics and polymers?

... right?
