While celebrations are on-going this year to mark Charles Darwin's bicentenary, there's at least one place that won't be toasting his memory - a creationist museum in Kentucky, US.
(Excerpt) Read more at news.bbc.co.uk ...
It displays the levtovers from the “Ripleys Believe it or Not” roadshow...
Wondered if you were interested...
Show clips from the Flinstones...
Simpletons and crazies.
The interesting thing about this museum is that I understand that certain significant people came by that museum (those people having to do with Evolution and the support of that idea) to have a ‘look-see” around the place and get an idea of what was going on there.
In a news report (it was last year sometime that I read it), these people were quite upset about that museum. The way they put it was that the material in the museum was so well presented that they were very worried that any of the students that came there to see it (and any of the public, in general) would be persuaded against the idea of evolution... LOL...
Now, I have to wonder, with all the schools teaching it..., why would they be so worried about one little museum? :-)
I haven’t been there yet, but that’s one museum that I want to get to, as soon as I can.
Maybe not publicly, but privately the curators at this museum most certainly thank God everyday for Darwin. For without him, they wouldn't have their big money making scam.
Without Darwin, these creationist might have had to actually get real jobs. Without any real other skills, somehow I doubt they would be able to live the extravagant lifestyles they currently do by fleecing the rubes.
Someone who is a skeptic of the skeptics.
My thinking is that the entire world is a Creationist museum. I marvel daily at the amazing creatures that we are blessed to share the world with. And what a wonderful world it is!
Blast me all you want for being 'simple-minded', but I just can't make myself believe that all of this beauty wasn't created by an intelligent, loving designer.
So all the smart people will be in h#%%? LOL!
AND... for those who would like some good information on the subject that the museum is presenting, you can go to this website...
It’s this organization that built the museum.
Why couldn’t God have created evolution?
Show us who is getting rich off the museum. Otherwise, I’ll take your comment as a hateful attack.
You asked — Why couldnt God have created evolution?
Well, basically because He said He didn’t... LOL...
“Maybe not publicly, but privately the curators at this museum most certainly thank God everyday for Darwin. For without him, they wouldn’t have their big money making scam. “
Bingo! It is not science that museums such as this are peddling, but rationalization. Unfortunately, they are packaging their rationalization as science and the naive faithful are buying it.
Evolution and Christianity are perfectly compatible, except for Christians of weak faith.
> ...the simpleminded...
Yes, only highly nuanced, intellectually complex minds could possibly grasp the concepts of such things as shrews turning into bats and dinosaurs turning into birds, having only random noise imposing pressure upon survival and vast mounts of time as the catalysts for such miraculous transformations.
Of course, only unwashed simpletons could possibly believe that a Supreme Being could have created all that we see around us, exactly as He wanted it to be, in a week’s time, taking a week, not because He could not speak all these things into existance all at once, if He wanted, but to lay down for us a metaphor for successful living; six of days out of every seven for work, and the seventh to rest from our labors.
Only idiots would believe that.
How many days per week do we have? With what celestial or terrestrial cycle is the seven-day week synchronized? Why do virtually all cultures share this cycle, even when they had been out of contact for eons, even when this cycle was not imposed upon them from another culture?
Why do we wear clothes?
Why is it wrong to kill, wront to steal, wrong to promote bastardy?
From what external, objective, transcendent truth do these laws descend?
