Okay. First of all, there’s going to be a Robo-Noah/Loch Ness Jesus: Psychic Apostle team-up and/or spin-off comic. I feel like that’s something the world needs.
Secondly, I actually paid a trip to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky (sorry, not linking to it). On our way to Tennessee for a family vacation/wedding, I spotted all kinds of signs for the “museum” and was previously aware of its location. With a certain degree of reluctance, my wife agreed to let me stop in on the way home.
On the way back, I pulled into the museum lot, which was pretty full considering that the place was scheduled to close within the next ninety minutes. My wife refused to go in, so she took the kids to a free petting zoo that they had on site. The kids got to see and pet both a Zorse and a Zebronkey…I am guessing the irony featuring of two man-made species was lost on the Creation Museum.
Inside, I sort of stumbled around the place in a bewildered daze. It’s not that anything that I saw was at all surprising as much as it was unsettling. It was also depressing how many people were inside just eating it up and nodding their heads in approval at signs that assured them dinosaurs, indeed, lived with humans and were afforded safe passage on Noah’s Ark.
I could go on and on about the wretchedness of the Creation Museum and its willful ignorance and what almost has to be consciously bullshit claims. There are many others who have discussed this place ad nauseum. All that I can do is offer my personal experience with the “museum”. I will have more to say at my regular blog; however, what I will say for now is that, in my estimation, the purveyors of this nonsense are likely either completely delusional and whacked out on goofballs, or they are deliberately spinning boners. There may be another option in there somewhere, but I don’t know what it is. I mean, they genuinely think that unicorns and dragons are real….
I will leave you with one last item. Below is the video I shot with my phone of one of the animatronic Noahs explaining just how he managed to get at least fifty kinds of dinosaurs on to his boat. Unfortunately, I missed recording the part where he talks about feeding the fire-breathing dragons, which God also led to him so that they could safely be stowed on board. Enjoy! (Or be depressed, whichever.)
I will post my full story, complete with pictures, over at my blog.
