Creationism

A Blog Around The Clock

Category archives for Creationism

First, as I reported earlier, Archy persuaded PZ Myers to host a one-time carnival about the opening of the Creation Museum – and here is the carnival – a lot of good stuff to read. I especially liked the only (so far) on-the-scene report by Martha Heil. I also tend to prefer posts that try…

Ken Ham Carnival!

You may have heard that Ken Ham is opening his freak show circus Museum of Creation “Science” in Cincinnati on May 28th. There will be protesters picketing.

Mike has a great idea

Three out of ten Republican presidential candidates raised hands in the recent debate indicating they do not believe in evolution. Jason has an excellent round-up of responses (Arianna Huffington rocks!) with some good comments by readers as well. How can you help combat scientific ignorance?

Did I frame that wrong?

Suckered?

OK, admit, how many of you really got suckered? (in reference to yesterday) Quite a lesson in credulity and perception for many…(yup, I was in on the joke from the very beginning/planning/execution stages)

At an IDC conference – Jason reports

Jason drove down to Knoxville and attended an ID-Creationist “conference” and lived to tell about it. And tell he did, in five installments: One Two Three Four Five All the usual suspects were there and all the usual nonsense was spouted, but the most interesting part was the Subway-line conversation Jason had (in Part Four),…
