(Re) Prepare To Believe

This news is about month old now, but that's what happens when there are 15 million links waiting for the limelight on the ultra-slow CINCINNATI revisited posting conveyor.

Anyway, just passing it along since I had a related, previous post on the subject.

Photo/text from source: "Ken A. Ham President and Chief Executive Officer of Answer in Genesis stands with a mechanical Utahraptor at The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky, in 2007. For a group of paleontologists, a tour of the Creation Museum, which has been dubbed a 'creationist Disneyland,' seemed like a great tongue-in-cheek way to cap off a serious conference."

Remembering the day that this article landed in my inbox, I wasn't at all prepared to believe that another article on our local museum was making the national rounds. As much as it's interesting to hear continual negative reviews of the museum's libretto (from Christians to non), I think these kinds of articles (such as mine here) only perpetuate receipts for its contrived propagatory ilk. In other words, everyone is drawn to the circus sideshows, but it doesn't help in the actual education and evolution progression of society... that is, unless you're predisposed to believe.

On that note, relax while listening to this fitting little diddy by the Desert Rose Band.

• NOTE: In an effort of complete transparency, especially in this age of ultra-touchiness, I'm not bashing any religion as a whole here. I was married in the Catholic church, and have family members that are quite devoted to their particular sects. I just personally think that throughout the ages, science & technology has continually aided in disproving aspects of
certain teachings. That being said, it'll be interesting to see where we'll end up in another 1000 years.

Edit 8/5/9: Bad news for its kin down south.
