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 ...

More stupidity from the Creation Museum

The Creation Museum apparently has a petting zoo, and one of the animals they have is a zonkey (usually referred to as a zebra mule). This creature is quite obviously infertile, but despite the fact the obvious conclusion as to why a zonkey cannot produce offspring should be that they are too genetically different to do so, the brilliant minds at the museum actually think this is evidence of creationism. Th ...

Sex scandal at Creation Museum

So, the Creation Museum, still so new to the world, is already getting embroiled in a sex scandal. An actor who appeared as Adam in a video the museum uses to help tell their story of how the universe was created also has or had a little risqué website on the side. The site shows some rather graphic photos and promotes a 'free love' attitude. The horror. This, of course, has gotten the officials at the Muse ...

Creation Museum set to open

If you're unfamiliar with Ken Ham, the relatively famous (or is it infamous) creationist, you will know him soon enough. Ham is part creator and director of a new Mecca for young earth creationists, a 27 million dollar facility designed by Patrick Marsh, whose visual flair helped engineer the Jaws and King Kong attractions at Universal theme park. The museum hopes to attract a quarter million visitors each ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

And the title of “Second Worst Museum” goes to…

Last week I wrote an article featuring the completion of the Creation Museum in Petersberg, Kentucky, which is opening today. However, there is another museum, in Roswell, New Mexico that ranks perhaps as the second most credulous institution in America, and a recent article on CBC.ca prompted me to write a bit about it. As far as mythology is concerned, it's hard to beat the Roswell story. In 1947, a farme ...

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 ...
