George H. W. Bush (1987). I miss this man so much….. he is a true Christian :) (via ricksantorum-2012)
When I posted that sign I really wanted you guys to come back and tell me it was fake. I’ve known about the Creation Museum for years, but never really gave much thought to what they actually exhibit there. Clicking on the link above led me to a trip to the museum taken by Skeptical Monkey, and these are just a few of the horribly ignorance inducing things in that “museum”:
This is just a small sample of what children who enter this place are exposed to. These outright lies and inaccuracies are beyond harmful! People paid to built this place, it’s been open since 2007. In those 5 years how many children have walked through that building and had these lies fed to them? How many young minds have been warped by things that aren’t even plausible? The image of a human co-existing with a dinosaur is alarming and rage inducing. Their explanation that human bones weren’t found with dinosaur bones because they weren’t buried together infuriates me. How insulting can one place be?
I usually go after the religion and not the religious, but for this particular post, I’m calling out the people who run this place, and the parents and churches who take their children there. Normally I can laugh off something like this, but when children are being harmed, it pisses me off. Yeah, I meant to say harmed, and I challenge anyone to tell me why this is not harmful. How can one possible justify this?
The silver lining exists that not all Christians believe this rubbish; I sure as hell never did. However, I have also admitted here several times that the biggest conflict I had was trying to reconcile what I knew to be true with what my religion told me was true. To simply relegate the things that didn’t make sense to the “wonders of God” was never enough for me. So while the majority of Christians may not bring their children to this awful place, the fact that it is still open makes my heart hurt for the children who have been exposed to it. ~ Kim
