    I want to go! It sounds better than the wax museum of the life of Jesus Christ in Gatlinburg.

    Clearly, many people are into duct tape, although the center of the interest would have to be in Philadelphia, PA.

    However, even in California, duct tape has its uses:

    Do some people actually believe Intelligent Design or is it just some big joke?

    I hope you're not saying you believe in evolution, Red, because that means your chances of winning the Republican nomination for president just went down the toilet.

    Not only do some people believe it, but, they're pushing it on their kids as science. Like this museum, trying to pass itself off as science. Want to see a great movie? Jesus Camp.

    I loved Jesus Camp. The Right Queer Rev. Ted Haggard makes an appearance in that (unaccompanied by his rentboy and presumably not wired on crystal).

    I thought it was the Great American Horror Movie. I saw the movie after the Ted stuff happened and didn't know he was going to be in it. What a shock. What a surreal country the US has become.

    This may sound dumb but is creationism the idea that God made everyone and everything just 7000 years ago aka Intelligent Design?

    OW--I saw Jesus Camp too. Scary and fun at the same time (well, fun if you are a perv headin' for hell in a handbasket like I am!!). But I would have to question whether or not the Rev. Ted was wired or not. Maybe not on meth for that, but my gawd, if that's how he NORMALLY acts, How the heck did he ever manage to attract a congregation! He was pretty spooky, if you ask me.

    Swiftjock,

    "...This may sound dumb but is creationism the idea that God made everyone and everything just 7000 years ago aka Intelligent Design?..."

    Creationism is indeed the former, but wasn't it 6,281.5 years ago? :-)

    "Intelligent Design" either explains away all the geological, paleontological, and astronomical evidence that science accumulated by claming that God did that too...created all that evidence 6,281.5 years ago, or, that there is a creator that put all in motion at the beginning of "time." In either case, some Being did it, although most conservative religionists seem to be wedded to the most illogical former two explanations.....

    John

    Man and dinosaurs co-existed according to many creationists. How's that for trampling science?

    A pathetic ploy to integrate an already faulty and preposterous claim to the pragmatic realm of science. Creationists and adherents of the teleological argument believe that "God", this supreme, omniscient being, created life ex nihilo through perceived notions of purpose, order, and design. Because something cannot be observed while it is ocurring is not indicative of its non-existence; evolution HAS been observed, just not while it is happening. Our complexity is, in fact, due to the differential survival of replicating entities- not "God."

    I would not doubt that this waste is in anyway associated with Liberty University, which claims to have 4,000( 1,000) year old fossils of dinosaurs.

    If there is one thing I fear the most it is creationism and its devout religious followers... their ignorance is the greatest plague... of BIBLICAL proportions.

    I refer you ALL to Richard Dawkins. A truly inspirational and revolutionary scientist.

    I recommend The Dawkins Delusion by Alister McGrath and The Edge of Evolution by Michael Behe.
