Much is being said   about AIG's new, laughably insane Creation Museum.  It strike me that, while  many sciencey types will no doubt be visiting and commenting on the museum over the next few weeks, it would be fun to have a vew from ATBC's. . .err. . . uniquely irreverent perspective.

With that in mind, I think it's time to call for volunteers.  Who will be the courageous man/woman/gender neutral person to brave the dangers of the creationist propaganda jungle?  Who among you is willing to shell out the big bucks for the Industrial-strength Irony Meter needed for such a venture?  I call on you, O Brave Midwest and Easterners, to do your duty and spare the rest of us, your geographically-challenged allies, from the agony of waiting any longer.  The Creation Museum must be mocked viciously--and soon!

Whoever is willing to undertake this dangerous mission will, upon your return, be lauded with great praise, massive quantities of beer* and more homosexual innuendo from DaveScot impersonators than you could possibly imagine.  So, do we have any volunteers?

If I lived in the area I'd probably do it, although the thought of giving $20 to AiG is quite a deterrent.  It's not so much spending $20 as it is giving it to AiG.

Next time I am in Kentucky I will see if I can slit my journey, use some hotel points and visit the place.

Gotta be a riot if you take the right attitude  :D

I don't know who did this

There's some good photos of some of the exhibits.  All we need now is the witty ATBC commentary!

In its attempt to denounce the old age of the Earth, it noted examples of gaseous versus solid planets and their rotations around stars, as well as how "planets and other bodies" can bend light to make it travel faster through space toward Earth--which would refute claims that the Earth must be old enough to see the light of stars many lightyears away.

This is the starting point in the actual teaching of creationism, and is probably why it seemed so awkward to hear about "God's divine plan." Fellow audience members were in awe of the spiraling views of space, and gave their own "amens" and "mmhmms" as the narrator mentioned God's majesty.

Where's the stork? I'm offended!

What I want to know is, who did Eve's hair, and was/is he one of those folks in the Bible who lived for hundreds of years? Maybe he's still around? I need to get my hair done.

I saw exactly that same dress in a shop in Guayaquil! It cost $1500. *Whew!* :)

well, maybe, but they certainly weren't allowed in today!

I found that the height of hypocrisy; Hammy, apparently desperate to show how creationism IS science, refuses entry to the museum to scientists!

I also find it a nice representation of the creationist mindset in general:

desperate to prove they have the "facts", but refuse to listen to criticism.

:O Oh, yeah, yeah...I know...I was just testing... :D

Look, I just want to say one thing: I don't think we should ever, evah give Hammie's museum ONE RED CENT!

Find some way to sneak in, folks - find out when they're having a party, some shindig, and talk your way in or sneak in - I've done it. Just be cool, have some pretext, and you can get in. Don't give them any money! Puh-lease! :) Pretty please with shimmies on top.

I am hoping that Raven is right in his/her posts that this "museum" will backfire on the creationists and just show most people how ridiculous this argument is.

OTOH. According to the Times (of London) 50% of the USA population believe that evolution is wrong.

Is that figure (half) correct?

I have every intention of visiting it -- life has become dreary and I need a good laugh. I'll probably go late this summer, just before the fall surf fishing season when more important matters are at hand.

Count me among those who think that this might come back to bite AiG in the ass. It is already being held up to ridicule and I doubt that will decrease. I do not think it will become either the recruitment tool or the gold mine that Ham dreams of. On a smaller scale, it's been done before.

I understand that they have "rumbling chairs" in the theater..... Go figger.

the better question is:

is the poll data meaningful?

example:

from the article you posted-

 
Quote
Although attempts to reintroduce an element of creationism – rebranded as “intelligent design” – into science lessons have foundered, three of ten Republican presidential candidates said in a recent debate that they did not believe in evolution. Opinion polls show consistently that half of Americans believe that humans did not evolve but were created, along with all living creatures, by God 6,000 to 10,000 years ago.


emphasis mine.

there is a difference between the idea of "special creation" and acceptance of the general tenets of evolutionary theory.  Of course, there shouldn't be, but it does tend to throw off exactly what is meant when one uses the gallup poll data.  the article misstates the question that was asked, as the 50% number comes specifically from the HUMANS were created question, not "all living creatures".

that said, general confusion about evolutionary theory is high, and complete acceptance, DOES consistently run very low in the US.

IIRC, only Turkey had a lower rate of acceptance than the US. (either PT or Pharyngula had that poll data posted a few months back)

....and of course Harun Yaha is workin frantically to bring the US to equal Turkey's standard :)

Is there any real major difference?

Isn't it important to all practical use of the theory of evolution that humans are included?

What use would the medicinal side of evolutionary theory be if humans got created seperately from other creatures?

no, as i said, there shouldn't be, but there is.

this relates to the general confusion about evolutionary theory that DOES run rampant in the US (and many other countries, too).

the point is not that there isn't confusion on the part of americans, but that the poll questions are answered entirely differently depending on how they are phrased.

so, it's not accurate for that article to use poll data that say that americans believe in special creation to say those same americans entirely discount evolution.

see?

What I want to know is, due to the Museum, will T-Rexes eating coconuts now become a standard tenet of 'consensus Creationism'?  :p

I think the phrase 'Yabba Dabba Doo Science' needs to be used more than it is.

OK. Would I be wrong now in assuming that you have some problem with me?

You seem to be adressing me in an antagonistic tone in a few posts now. Have I said or done something to offend you? If so then please explain.

The article I linked seemed quite neutral to me.

that wasn't the issue, as I understood it, based on your question of whether 50% of americans discount evolution.

I merely tried to clarify what the poll data meant, and that the paper added embelishment that wasn't warranted by what the poll was asking, and confuses the issue of exactly what % of americans "discount" evolution.

there are lots of americans who i would say accept evolutionary theory, but make the "special creation" exemption.

Francis Collins as a well known example.

with the way the article you linked to phrased it, Francis Collins would discount evolutionary theory.

I hope that's clearer?

Most Americans believe in flying saucers and ESP, too.

But then, most Americans can't find Iraq on a world map.
Heck, about one in eight Americans can't even find the UNITED STATES on a world map.

Ken Ham.

Moreover, I think Hammy would be more than happy to convince you that he is an expert on all things, and that he has much to teach in every conceivable field of endeavor or study.

which reminds me, does Hammy put "Dr." in front of his name like Hovind does?

The question is like the classic:  "When did you stop beating your wife?"

If they phrased the question differently and more honestly:

"Kids, do you want to use scientific method, rational thought and observable evidence or an acient often contradictory document?"

I know most of you readying this board already said this to yourself, but I just had to say it out loud.

Edit:  I am about 4-5 hours away, but would make the trip if I had the opp to actually ask questions of those in charge.  (And if my redhead was willing to be waiting for me afterwards...)

All I'm saying is that I know how to make certain volatile chemical compounds in situ and can afford a return flight to Kentucky. I am not in any way suggesting we bomb the "museum" at night when no one's around, nor that I fly over and do it. Nor am I advocating that kind of deplorable direct action or asking for anyone to pick me up from the airport, flight number BA8763.

I just thought I'd mention that.

Louis - You're taking a BIG chance that DaveScot will tattle to Dembski, who will tattle to Homeland Security...

That said, I will meet you in Chicago, but have taken the liberty of changing your flight plan to leave June 1, as you Brits say, and have booked you first class from Heathrow.  Unfortunately, we will have to fly "Traveller" class to KY, but I think that's what KY Jelly was invented for, right?

Incidently, I had to put the 4,178 pounds on your credit card, hope you don't mind.  You may also note that it's only a 1-way ticket, but hey, you'll be a martyer for The Cause, and remembered here for weeks after you're gone.

{shrugs, points at self}

Not a yank. Homeland who? Let them quiz me, just make sure they wear the gloves!

If MI5 or MI6 bash my door down and ask me nasty questions I will explain to them in terms they will fully comprehend that I was joking. The UK intelligence services are actually intelligent on occasion. Shock horror.

After all Mark Thomas (google him, the man's a comedy genius) once jokingly offered his columnist's fee for his work in the New Statesman as a bounty on George Bush, and he got way with it. I'm merely discussing the destruction of a "museum" of lies constructed by a dead eyed delusional Aussie import.

£4k? But a pittance. And I don't have a credit card, I have a limitless charge card. In fact, I have that card usually at precisely the same time I am having sex with Eliza Cuthbert. Ah if wishes were horses, beggars would ride.

"Welcome, to the world of tomorrowwwww!"

do they have the "Whalers on the Moon" exhibit, I wonder?

Why not? If The Flood caused the Grand Canyon, no reason there can't be whales on the Moon. (Who says the flood waters couldn't rise high enough to put whales on the Moon?!!1!)

Maybe we could sic The Crushinator on Hammie's Playhouse?

btw, my earlier post was a shameless reference to futurama, which i was reminded of by the "world of tommorrow" phrase.

they had an episode where fry goes to the moon...

and they've made it into a thempark (ala disneyland), complete with a hugely distorted history including a recurring theme of "whalers on the moon" being the ones primarily responsible for exploring the moon to begin with.

yeah, silly, I know, but if you saw it, you'd immediately recognize the parallels with Hammy's new crapseum.

I think even Fry, if he wandered into Hammy's crapseum, would have said the same thing he did in that clip:

"This is stupid"

Fry (after using the Smelloscope to smell Saturn (strawberries!) and Jupiter (pine needles!)): Just don't make me smell Uranus!

The Professor: Fry, they renamed it to get rid of that joke once and for all.

Fry: What do they call it now?

The man who plays Adam in a video aired at a Bible-based creationist museum has led a different life outside the Garden of Eden, flaunting his sexual exploits online and modeling for a clothing line that promotes free love.

After learning about his activities Thursday, the Creation Museum in Kentucky pulled the 40-second video in which he appears.

"We are currently investigating the veracity of these serious claims of his participation in projects that don't align with the biblical standards and moral code upon which the ministry was founded," Answers for Genesis spokesman Mark Looy said in a written statement.


Is that a fig leaf or are you just happy to see me?

Which stateroom accommodated the 350,000 species of beetles?

...

oh...apparently they just needed a couple--the variety is supposed to have recovered rapidly after that :)

...

If they recover that fast and diversify just as fast,...
Well heck then all he really needed was like 2 mammals, 2 amphibians, 2 birds, 2 fish, 2 insects and 2 reptiles.

Oh I see,..

Boy! God is a tricksy one! God made him lug around all those extras so that they would have food for the journey. Unfortunately they forgot that the had to keep 2 of every animal GROUP and accidentally ate cyclopses first..
(See I should write for the museum, I can make up all kinds of crazy BS) Also Jesus was actually Asian, and the first Ninja ever!

...

Say, who was hosting all of those obligate parasites, bacteria, and viruses?? You know, like tapeworms, polio, smallpox, cholera, plaque, diptheria, etc., etc., etc... Those gems of God's creation obviously survived the flood, too.

...

Also Jesus was actually Asian,

no, you're wrong.

he was mexican.

...

I hope they made a safe place for the termites. So much wood ... yum yum.

...

So, I guess the whole idea of this crap-a-rama is to not ask yourself any questions that would obviously pop into the mind of a 9 year old. That's how it makes "sense".

...

I'm gonna go with Pirate Jesus rather then Ninja Jesus.

...

Jesus was neither pirate nor ninja. Jesus was a zombie. Who else would rise from the dead?

...

Gotta admiyt...pretty cool that Noah built that all by himself in short period of time too. I think even Chuck Norris would break a sweat doing that. Oh God helped? That makes sense then. It was one of those "I know it's impossible, but it has to be done so do it anyway."

Oddly enough, that building looks like a bank in the ArsTechnica article.  I wonder why?

Thats an interesting dress Eve seems to be wearing.  Shouldn't she be nude in the era before sin?  Putting a dress on her is against the biblical tenet, surely?

If that’s supposed to be a replication of the ark, then AIG has gone a tad overboard (pun intended). According to the bible the ark was three stories high, not five.

ROTFLMAO! *Claps* And that's my favorite episode of Robot Chicken BTW.

*Slaps head* Hey! I've got an idea for a testable hypothesis!

Let's flood the Creation Museum with water for 40 days and 40 nights, and see if the exhibits sort themselves according to the strata that we see in the fossil record, with the paper mache trilobites below the dinosaurs and the flowering plants above the trees.

You telling me there isn't any Flood-themed water park in the joint? What a rip-off! :)

that's a fantastic idea!

and I mean that seriously.  there was an excellent protest run by a group that was flooding buildings in downtown Santa Cruz to halt the incursion of big chain coffee and clothing and book stores.

it worked; well to some extent, anyway.

the city council got the message, canceled many of the contracts, but the council was replaced about 2 years later, and the chains moved right on in after that.

still, I think it made a splash.

But you also have to flood the drain system so water floods up from the deep. Make sure it's comes out at a decent pressure otherwise it won't qualify as a fountain.

Ken Ham may have animatronic dinos and the Fall of Man Bungee Jump, but we've got teh real Hi-Tech!

Wow.  That is indeed a Terrific Tard-Mine.  One of your favorite boards?  

Perhaps we could have a contest?  Our All-American Tards vs. your Irish Tards?  Winner to take on The Euro-Tard Champion?  

For the Tard Of The Universe?

I hate to sound jingoistic, BUT, our All-American Tard Lineup is going to have some awfully Tarderrific performers:

Sal, DaveTard hisself, Joe G, BA77 (filter included)... AND MANY, MANY MORE!

The rules commission of course will have to rule on Densye O'Leary.  She is Canadian, but performs most of her tard here in The States...

Nah, I only go there to make sure that the local boys are maintaining standards. (They do). Besides, my handle has already been nabbed there, so I have to post as Crocoduck Rex.

The One True Tardlode is in Murka, not Yurrp. There are very good reasons for this.

SHIT! THOSE MOFOs.

Well, I never have given them any money, so the promise that I NEVER WILL hasn't got much sting. They have not really lost anything. That is a problem.

Ok. Which one of you CBEB'S has the 'Expel' button? I think it's high to use the damn thing, otherwise why even have it.

In case you haven't seen this yet, looks like the zoo backed down:
Quote
A promotional deal between the Cincinnati Zoo and the Creation Museum was scuttled Monday after the zoo received dozens of angry calls and emails about the partnership.

The promotion was billed as “Two Great Attractions, One Great Deal” and offered a package deal on tickets for the zoo’s annual Festival of Lights and a museum event called Bethlehem’s Blessings.

The deal appeared on web sites for both institutions Friday, but it was pulled by the zoo Monday morning after complaints about the partnership started pouring in.

I just added an update for my blog:

Update: The Cincinnati Enquirer reports that the Cincinnati Zoo has removed the double ticket package with the AIG Creation Museum. The CZ flacks apparently still don't get it, saying that they did so because all the negative feedback was a "distraction". So don't expect them to get it right in the future; they have not indicated that they have had a learning experience.

I get the strong sense that most of the staff are away for Thanksgiving, leaving FTK's less-intelligent cousin with the keys.

Is that the one who fathered her children or her husband?  Obviously, I'd conclude that the one of lesser intellect is the one who married her but one never knows.
