(Courier-Journal)   Oh Kentucky. First you get the Creation Museum and then Ark Encounter and now folks want to build Creation Science Hall of Fame there. Do you realize that even Florida and Texas are starting to snicker behind your back?   (courier-journal.com) divider line 171

I think it'd be fun to visit these places just to gaze at exhibits created by those with such an entirely different view than my own.

Bill Nye could've shortened his speech on why teaching Creationism to children is dangerous by just pointing to this.

That anyone seriously believes this stuff, or considers it "science" is a blow to humanity, and our progress as a species.

Let's see, we have a leaflet about Creation Science Hall of Famers or Famous Jewish Athletes.

I often think it would be good to have one state for refuge for the religious nuts. I think Kentucky just went to #1.

There is one thing I know about Kentuckians: If a daring fellow annoys, what e'er his strength or forces, they'll show him that Kentucky boys are alligator horses.

It should probably be a state that can easily be detached from the mainland should the levels of derp reach dangerous levels.

/maybe Florida or Delaware?

For anyone stumping for Kirk Cameron to be inducted as part of the inaugural class, I'd like to remind you that it's the Creation Science Hall of Fame, not the Creation Science Hall of Very Good

At this point in his career, Cameron's closest comparables are Lisa Welchel and Willie Ames. And I'm sorry, that just doesn't pass CSHoF muster.

What exactly would one have to do to get into the Creation "Science" Hall of Fame? They don't do actually science, or anything rational for that matter.
 
2012-08-27 09:43:31 AM
You can't mix "Creation" and "Science". That's just stupid. Religion and science just don't mix.

Why, it would be like having a "Church of Scientology" or something equally inane.

They specialize in the science of creating bullshiat.

I'm unfamiliar with the Ark Encounter, does it include Dinosaurs like the creation museum?

It's not actually built yet, but I'm sure that it will. I remember seeing a photo from the Iowa State Fair of a Noah's Ark exhibit that had a miniature triceratops figure inside it.

Oh man, the creation booth at the Iowa State Fair is the height of 'If I talk really fast, this bullshiat sounds like science'. I don't mind if they fool stupid adults with that, but I feel like it's a real shame that they use cartoons, bright colors, and 'fancy words' to lure in children as well.

Welcome to the beetle wing of the Ark Experience. Here we have recreated how Noah was able to store a pair from each of the 450.000 species of beetles. This wing of the museum cost only $15 billion and took only 60 years to build. Now, we move on to the spider wing...

Right. The "science" of creating the Earth and all its creatures in seven days, from nothing, by a sky man.

Science!

Right after we bring back studies phrenology and astrology to replace psychology and astronomy.

As a Kentuckian, I'm ashamed of this but not the least bit surprised.

the only 3 letters he needed to know was U. S. and A.

Pretty sure that is for the adults.
Kids have built in BS detectors.
By the time they are in puberty, they've convinced themselves that they are undercover operative spies, trying to figure out what the core mission to all the BS actually is.

Did this story ever make it to Fark? I remember submitting it but no greenlight. In essence you had the national group that accredits schools and testing procedures tell the state that students are behind in Biology because they don't understand evolution and the state's reaction is "Well, can't you just fudge the standards a bit for us? Cuz, we just don't believe in Scientific mumbo-jumbo here."

"We're simply saying to the ACT people we don't want what is a theory to be taught as a fact in such a way it may damage students' ability to do critical thinking."

Critical thinking, huh? Ok.

Story after story like this and people STILL believe in fairy tales? Oh my gog! If I talk to an imaginary person people will call me crazy, but if a large group does it, it's religion? When men of the cloth or with authority say god has spoken to them, people rejoice! but if I say god speaks to me, I'm crazy? guess I'll never understand how people can so easily be fooled into believing that tripe.

I for one hope the Hall of Failed Science Exams exhibit really teaches Kentucky's children the state's underlying message: Skoolinz dum. USA! USA! USA! USA!

Delaware's not nearly big enough. Besides, I'd then lose my easy access to tax free shopping and cheap booze. So let's just stick with Florida.

It seems that, based on their list of honorary inductees, they are scientists that predated the whole "debate" over the age of the planet and universe (daVinci, Newton), or scientists that worked in unrelated fields (GW Carver). It doesn't seem to include any, you know, creation-sympathetic geologists, astrophysicists, anthropologists, etc...

And then they're inducting the founder of the Creation Museum.

Why is it that a group based in New Jersey wants to build their little religious bigotfest in Kentucky?
 
2012-08-27 10:38:38 AM
NO NO NO NO NO NO.

Dammit rest of Kentucky, us Louisvillians are trying to make this state into something nice and the rest of you, save Lexington, are farking it up. Quit sucking up our tax dollars to build your bullshiat.

Same shiat happens in Virginia with the rest of the super conservative state relying on the income they gather from the liberal NoVA area.

kd1s: Why is it that a group based in New Jersey wants to build their little religious bigotfest in Kentucky?


Because our governor -- a Democrat, at that! -- gave a mess of tax breaks to the last snake oil salesman to build his mouth-breather trap, and when there's an idiot handing out money in the hopes that other idiots will pay to see what you're offering, you don't ask questions, you just take that idiot's money.


/God damn Kentucky.

Why do these papers print the derp? It's a creationist attraction, not a creation science attraction.

It seems like they're all a bunch of stenographers these days.
