Let me say this much: I have to admit admiration for the pure balls-out, high-octane creationism thatís on offer here. Not for the Creation Museum that mamby-pamby weak sauce known as ďIntelligent Design,Ē which tries to slip God by as some random designer, who just sort of got the ball rolling by accident. Screw that, pal: The Creation Museumís God is hands on! He made every one of those animals from the damn mud and he did it no earlier than 4004 BC, or thereabouts. Itís all there in the book, son, all you have to do is look. Indeed, every single thing on display in the Creation Museum is either caused by or a consequence of exactly three things:
1. The six-day creation;
2. Adam eating from the tree of life;
3. Noahís flood.
Really, thatís it. Thatís the Holy Trinity of explanations and rationalizations.
That's from John Scalzi's report on his long-awaited trip to the Creation Museum in Kentucky. He also has a 101-photo slideshow, which is a must-see. John's captions and the comments are high on the snarkiness scale.
Back in June his commenters raised $5,118.36 to fund his trip there; he donated it to Americans United for Separation of Church and State.
I'm ashamed to say that, while I own Old Man's War, I haven't read it yet.Posted by Linkmeister at November 13, 2007 11:34 AM | TrackBack
