scottydoesntknow: The zip line attraction opened this spring to help the religion-themed museum attract a wider audience.

LOL. Pretty soon they're going to be putting evolution exhibits just to drum up controversy.


I was just there with my dad a few weeks ago. They actually get around the "animals fitting on the ark" problem by explaining that Noah only had to bring two of each "kind" of animal, and one of the examples given is that Noah only had to bring one pair of wolves. Wolves, dogs, coyotes, foxes (yeah, foxes), jackals, etc. are all the same "kind", and after the flood subsided, the wolves reproduced and their offspring dogs, coyotes, foxes, jackals, etc. over time.

I almost blew up in the museum. THAT'S EVOLUTION, YOU DUMBASSES! (Except the foxes, who were just kinda thrown in there like they belonged when they don't really.)

Amos Quito: Working in mysterious ways?


When god saves you from the tornado, it's divine intervention; when he trashes your house and everything you love, it's mysterious ways. Is it rational? No. But neither is believing in a merciful but vengeful and spiteful sky friend.

Here's the thought I had the other day that I would like the Christian Anti-Science Museum to answer:

If it took God two days (48 hours; 5th and 6th day) to create all of the animals of the air, sea and the beasts on the ground, then why did he go through all the trouble of having Noah round up two of everything and put them on a boat?  Couldn't he have just flood the earth and then, when the waters receded, just spend a day or two (since he wouldn't have to worry about the sea animals since they were inexplicable spared) and drop a new toy box of animals on the earth?

Seems it would have been WAY easier than to have Noah travel all the way to - say - the Australian continent to grab a couple of kangaroos, kiwis, and koalas and bring them back to his boat.

(Also, if the ark rested on a mountain in Turkey, how did those Aussie animals get back to Australia?  And how did the panda get back to China?  And what did it eat on the ark, since it requires 20-30 lbs of bamboo per day?  And what did it eat on the journey back to China?)

/ you can't really believe this crap.... can you?

Zeus does not approve of your false idolatry.

Or, he was aiming for the Torchdown Jesus Mark II about 40 miles north, and missed.

scottydoesntknow: FormlessOne: Did anyone else ask "why does the Creation Museum have a zip line?"

Seriously, how does that communicate whatever bizarre message they're pushing? Do guests strap on fake wings and take a "Tour of the Angels" or something? I mean, it has to fit into their idiom somehow, right? Otherwise, they're just another Christian-based theme park.

One of the side-link 'Related' articles talks about just that. Link

Basically they aren't as successful as they'd want to be. 1.9 million visitors in 6 years is not very good (Houston Museum of Natural Science gets 2 million per year). They're adding some other attractions, including some that have nothing to do with religion, to attract more people.

I guess you could say they are evolving to survive.


But considering some of those attractions are injuring people...they may not be...*dons sunglasses* intelligently designed.

I'm gobsmacked that I can't find a copy of that Gary Larson (?) 'tune. Oh well, there's always this one...
