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.

Chinchillazilla: 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.)
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. LinkBasically 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.
