The Creationists’ Museum

Please, stop reading my blog and go here for one of the funniest-creepiest posts ever, a description of a blogger’s trip to the Creation Museum. And skim the 600 (!) comments for more laughs. If you are too busy to click the link, here’s a samplette:

And this is, in sum, the Creation Museum. $27 million has purchased the very best monument to an enormous load of horseshit that you could possibly ever hope to see. I enjoyed my visit, admired the craft with which the whole thing was put together, and was never once convinced that what I was seeing celebrated was anything more or less than horseshit. Popular horseshit? Undoubtedly. Horseshit hallowed by tradition and consecrated by time? Just so. Horseshit of the finest possible quality? I would not argue the point. And yet, even so: Horseshit. Complete horseshit. Utter horseshit. Total horseshit. Horseshit, horseshit, horseshit, horseshit. I pity the people who swallow it whole.

And the photos! $20 for the admission ticket! And the step-by-step description of Christianism at its looniest. Just go there. And while you’re LOLing, remember, lots and lots of Americans believe this horseshit should be taught in our public schools as an “alternative theory” to evil-ution. God save us all.

Nice piece. Though I sense a certain bias against horses in the text. Horses are wonderfull animals and the product of their digestive tract is in no way inferior to yours or mine. Period. Just to make that point clear.

We went there last week, the exhibits were great and it was worth the money. Sure it was a laugh too.
