American superiority…RESTORED!

Earlier, I was mildly perturbed that Canada was leading my country in the cheesy science “museum” race; this is, of course, a race to the bottom. Scott Hatfield has come to my rescue, though, and sent in some photos of Carl Baugh’s double-wide “Creation Evidence Museum” which is surely one of the tackiest examples of creationist silliness in the country—although, when you get right down to it, Ham’s opulent exhibit is just this same thing with buckets of money thrown at it.

You also might be able to find a picture of Scott in here if you’ve been wondering what he looks like. Hint: he’s not the guy in the purple robes in the last picture.

Now that’s pure Velveeta. It’s going to be hard to find a “museum” cheesier than that — I might have a shot at it this July, when we make a trip to the Pacific Northwest. If we go by it, I may stop in at the creationist “museum” set up near the base of Mt St Helens, which from the outside, looks even shabbier than Baugh’s.

    Pretty sound reasoning, if you ask me.

    so many of these people seem SO CLOSE to realizing what a bunch of hooey they are hanging on to…

    then it usually just fades into a haze of denial and projections, like they forgot to take their meds for a day.

    Believe it or not, I heard this exact argument in a sermon just a few weeks ago. It’s one of the favorites of that bunch, closely related to the Easter version (if Christ never rose from the dead, then Christianity is false).

    As my logical friend MsEditor would say, “And the problem with that is…?”
