    "Convincing people to reject evolution—and the Big Bang, the age of the earth, and many other mainstream scientific ideas—was accomplished in part by portraying the scientific community as a cabal of elitist, politically motivated secularists conspiring with the assistance of Satan to undermine the traditional values of American Christians. This view of the scientific community resonated with conservative Protestants, bewildered by a world that they once controlled but that now seemed to be leaving them and their values behind. Such a view provides a reason to reject so-called “expertise” in favor of homey assurances that everything they needed to know about origins is in the Bible."

    So Ken Ham, an Australian, is the one that convinced people of America to be Young Earth Creationists. Yeah, that really makes a lot of sense... to an atheist numbnuts.

    Did you see the 'huckster' part? He is the one who created the 'creationist museum, where dino's and humans walk together, for a price of course.

    Sounds like huckster to me.

    There is nothing wrong with that. It is called capitalism. Don't you remember "The Flintstones" on TV years ago. They even made a movie called "The Flintstones" more recently and they made money off of that too.

    There were many other movies that were made with dinosaurs and people together. The sexy Raquel Welch was in one of the earlier ones and I am sure you must have heard of the Jurassic Park movies that had people and dinosaurs together.

    This "creation museum" is similiar to theme parks where people go on vacation for enjoyment. They need to take in money to keep it going and to pay workers. Some people might not have jobs if it were not for things like that.

    There are many types of museums that collect a fee to enter. I think the only ones that don't are funded by tax payer's dollars. You should be celebrating the creation of jobs rather than criticizing it.

    I doubt that even sunhouse would care what you think since you have already been proven WRONG.

    Hardly i reign supreme as a Bible student extraordinaire, all you have proven is what we have known already, you are incapable of rational thought.

    There is LOTS wrong with that. They actively spread the lie about creationism, reinforcing the programming inherent in religious activity.

    I don't know about you but I knew the Flintstones was just a story, a fiction for laughs.

    Your huckster buddy is not laughing, except all the way to the bank.

    This is a sick proposition.

    I think you are trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill. Like I said before, this is just capitalism at work. Other people have their evilution museums, so I see nothing wrong with one creation museum.
