This is what a Creationist ‘argument’ looks like

There's a part of me (a rather small and insignificant part) who admires the time and effort creationists employ trying to refute evolution. Think of how much time and effort these morons put into trying to prove that their invisible friend is in fact responsible for all the diversity of life on Earth. It's an ambitious goal to say the least, but do you know what makes it easier? Inventing shit! If Evolutio ...

Idaho creationists want their own monument to ignorance

Hey Idaho, were you feeling left out of this whole evolution-creation "debate"? Are you tired of scientists telling you that the earth is 4.5 billion years old instead of only 6000? Well, then you should donate every spare dollar you have to the Northwest Science Museum. Although they have yet to even raise enough money for their pathetic displays, it certainly hasn't affected their enthusiasm for this proj ...

Kent Hovind gets spanked

If you don't remember Kent Hovind, it might be because you've come into the atheism scene a little late. He's currently in jail for failing to pay taxes on a number of his enterprises, including a religiously themed amusement park called "Dinosaur Adventure Playland". This bastion to ignorance features not only depictions of humans and dinosaurs co-existing, but also a replica of the Loch Ness Monster. It's ...

Accommodation or confrontation?

Since arriving in Calgary, I made a simple promise to myself I would further my involvement in the local atheist community. It was therefore fortuitous that after only of few days of adjusting to my new surroundings, an opportunity to meet up with other atheists presented itself in the form of a lecture. Held at the University of Calgary last night, it was entitled "The Evolution-Creation Controversy". Dr. ...

Genesis Code, coming soon to a DVD bargain bin

I'm looking forward to watching this poorly acted piece of propaganda for a few reasons. 1) I get to watch Lance Henriksen's career continue to be flushed down the toilet, 2) It stars well known MMA fighter Rich Franklin, who also cut the ribbon at the creationist museum, and 3) I get to watch how Christians portray non-believers, which is always guaranteed comedic gold. I suppose it'll also be pretty hilar ...

Kentucky Gov. announces $150 mil creationism theme park

The creation museum is apparently only the tip of the iceberg for Answers in Genesis, which is partnering with Ark Encounters LLC to create a gargantuan 500 foot "replica" of Noah's Ark which will contain live animals, as well as a Tower of Babel, and a Middle Eastern village. The for-profit company wants to receive a tax incentive from the state, and it sounds to me like they have good changes of getting i ...

Vanity Fair reviews the Creation “Museum”

About 3 years late, the people over at Vanity Fair decided it was time to visit this mausoleum of ignorance, a testament to the strong desire of the faithfully ignorant to have their beliefs strengthened by any means necessary. The pictures in the article, strangely enough, were taken by actor Paul Bettany, the atheist actor who portrayed Charles Darwin in the movie "Creation". Watching it is on my to-do li ...

Ken Ham thinks he knows something

If you're not familiar with Ken Ham, then you are officially a fly by night atheist. How could you not know about this crazy Aussie? He's the man behind the Creation Museum, perhaps the largest and most expensive temple to ignorance ever created. With a 27 million dollar budget, and over half a million visitors since it opened in 2007, the Creation Museum is a snapshot in time, a reminder the human race sti ...

Creation museum says they have “indeniable proof” of the truth of their claim

I've written extensively about the Creation Museum because it represents the 'peak' of creation 'science'. Here is a museum that takes a serious stance as to the value of scientific understanding; which is to say they see little to no value in the principle. It's ironic, of course, that the museum uses the latest in robotics and animatronics technology (itself a product of our scientific endeavors) to suppo ...
