Taking Texas And The Nation Back

Creationists spend $27 Million to cripple children’s minds!

Posted by bosskitty on May 21, 2007

We must honor the millions of funda-mental-ists who contributed to the new Family Sized Creationist Museum. Their byline: PREPARE TO BELIEVE! Breaking news: Adam and Eve frolicked with the dinosaurs!

The Creation Museum, opening May 28, 2007, presents a “walk through history.” Designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director, this state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life.

Oh my! I am flipping through the bible pages now to find the dinosaurs in the story of creation. What am I missing?

Thank you Laura Hornsby: Associated Press

The $27 million Creation Museum, a few miles south of Cincinnati, tells a biblical version of the Earth’s history, asserting that the planet is just a few thousand years old and man and the giant lizards once coexisted.

The educators say its exhibits, inspired by the Old Testament, are geared toward children but lack scientific evidence.

“When they try to confuse (kids) about what is science and what isn’t science, scientists have an obligation to speak out,” said Lawrence Krauss, an author and physics professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.

Scientists say Earth is several billion years old, and that the first dinosaurs appeared around 200 million years ago, dying out well before the first human ancestors arose a few million years ago.

Well, the disneyland of truth has arrived. The alternative to centuries of truth seekers has hired a Marketing firm, Joseph David Advertising, who provides a unique presentation so “we can better learn where our guests are coming from.”

You may as well enjoy researching all the other versions of creation that existed before the scientific method was applied to the question, ‘where did we come from’. You might try the creationist “Fossil Park”. Don’t stop there, there are stories from every culture in the world. Lists: University of Georgia, Amsterdam 6th Grader course, Rutgers University. Then of course there’s Wikipedia.

These stories are all educational, but, they still do not trump science. Why do they want to cripple our children’s minds? Remember, three Republicans raised their hands to announce they believe in creationism! Read the posts on Republican candidate Brownback’s supporter blog, Blogs4BrownbackThey disclaim any official status with the campaign, but their posts are rather enlightening.

I am truly appalled and a little scared ….

    Appalling, scared…Yes!
    The rise of these freaks into positions of control over school boards and thus curriculum was Step One.
    Determined to fight this expansion of creationist crap: Step Two.

    Thanks Mirth, I’ve just complimented ToTheRight,Org blog for exposing Brownback. This nut case really thinks he can brainwash ALL of us. Stepford Wives, move over. We will be the Stepford Christian Theocracy if we let these morons take over again. Even some Republicans are showing concern …

    Even during the middle ages with education all but non-existent for the masses of people and what their was largely controled by the Catholic church, the truth was still able to survive thanks to a few who preserved the lessons of previous era’s. They are a scary force to be sure, but the fundamentalists will lose in the end. They will be a dangerous force to be reckoned with in the near future, that is a certainty but their turning their backs to science will put them at a disadvantage they won’t be able to overcome.

    D-day, history repeats so often, I just wonder why humans try to kill each other faster than mother nature can. Humans, again, create their own disaster when it comes to politics.

    BossKitty:
    What is the matter with you of course Adam and Eve frolicked with the dinosaurs! Their names were Pebbles and BamBam.

    Brownback is a complete nut job. He apparently believes that the Bible is an historical document instead of a book of lessons. But then if you pick and choose your reality instead of proven science you would believe as Brownback does.

    From Brownback’s blog:
    No one–not Copernicus, not Kepler, not Galileo, not Newton, not Einstein–absolutely no one has proven the earth to be moving.

    Excuse me but the aero space program proved that the earth moves and account for it on all of their missions.

    Personally when I elect any official, I am not voting for a religion. I am sick and tired of the Christian religion being shoved in our faces. Christians seem to forget that they are not the only religion on this planet.

    Christian’s complete disregard for other is beyond irritating. Their ideas are worse than backward. If their beliefs are slightly threaten by science or opposing views, they retaliate with false and outlandish statement.

    Brownback and the rest of the religion nuts in this country need to be raptured before the next election.

    I truly must forgive everyone who dismisses science as a conspiracy. I know God does. America allows those released from mental hospitals to walk the same streets that we do. America should also have sympathy for those caught up in the growing cult of the Christian Identity Movement. They have every right to believe what they have the ability to understand. But! They have no right to impose their twisted beliefs onto other people!!! Where are the CULT-Busters when you need them.

    To be fair, Blogs 4 Brownback isn’t officialy endorsed by Brownback. As far as I can tell, it’s just some person with a wordpress account who likes his politics.

    That doesn’t mean we can’t make fun of it, of course 😉

    Chen, “Brownback coordinates with this Web site and allows it to campaign on his behalf as his main online presence.” That tells me all I need to know about this guy.
    Don’t forget, I spent 20 years at NASA helping to make up the science that irritates them and insults their cult beliefs.

  10. ChenZhen said

    I didn’t see that quote anywhere.

  11. bosskitty said

    Sorry Chen, I was referencing Blogs4Brownback in the list of creationist sites to view. Brownback still was one of the 3 republicans who raised his hand when asked if anyone believed in creationism. In the ‘about’ for that page is a disclaimer: “a blog dedicated to the election of Senator Samuel Brownback (R-KS) to the Presidency of the United States in November of 2008. We are not affiliated with the Brownback campaign, and our views do not necessarily reflect the views of Senator Brownback.” Thanks for pointing this out. I’d rather be accurate than funny. Although, he still raised his hand …

    The BBC went to this Museum and they took a scientist specializing in Evolution. It was pretty funny. The woman scientist was very nice. She said the museum was first rate. Then she comented on the T-Rex playing with the little girl. She asked, “so what do you think that T-Rex ate?” The creationist said only plants and the scientist said, “Well, those are mighty sharp teeth for eating plants are you sure there wasn’t a little girl wrapped in those leaves?” You probably can find the broadcast on the BBS website. I’ll do some sniffing around to see if I can find it.
