Creation Museum Highlight Tweets 1:30-6:30pm

Earlier today I liveblogged the highlights of the first 5 hours of Creation Museum discussion from the official twitter feed of PZ Myers and the Secular Student Alliance Trip (#Creozerg). Click here for those highlights.

Now this thread features the rest of the major tweeting from the afternoon, picking up where I left off with tweets in descending order from oldest to newest (with a few moved for continuity). And please when you’re done, stick around and check out my regular Camels With Hammers posts on philosophy, ethics, and atheism!  The right hand of the screen offers a long list of my original remarks.

Creation Museum Kid Kicked Out

RobsterFCD PZ is now an official Kentucky Colonel. #creozerg

Matt_Hone #CreoZerg I would understand someone getting kicked out for a swear on their t-shirt. But the Ariane Sherine slogan? How is that offensive?

the_sun_and_i The theme park sounds disappointingly stupid. Was a good time had by all, at least? Will a good time be had later this evening? #creozerg

noisician “Adam sinned so you could enjoy bacon.” – revelation from outing to Ham’s Foley creation museum #CreoZerg

pzmyers @CRVW1607 They kicked him out, but it was as we were leaving anyway #creozerg

dreikin Watching #creozerg & wishing I was there. Be interesting to see how my smart conservative christian grandfather would react to the museum…

mephikristiles #creozerg #cmtour It’s that bad. They’ve got some seriously offensive crap up.

acrossthebridge “Adam sinned so I could have bacon” t-shirts requested, t-shirts made: http://tr.im/vUhr #creozerg

DoubtingFoo #creozerg They shouldve worn bible quote shirts like “Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones.”

lousycanuck @pzmyers I thought that was John Lithgow!! #creozerg

Avatar1_normal Kimbo_Jones so how long until selective memory prevents the museum folk from realizing atheists are nice people? #creozerg

antimattr Seems like the tour of the Creation “museum” was awfully short. Apparently there’s not much to see? I’m shocked!

Kimbo_Jones RT @nojesusnopeas: #creozerg: The “How to turn ‘Jews’ into ‘Greeks’” nonsense explained: http://tinyurl.com/kthbr5
cj_wood @pzmyers “the only surprise was how intellectually dead the place was” 300 rational thinkers? its got to be an intellectual record #creozerg

SpontOrder #creozerg stop whining about the money, they spent the museum spent it all on extra security.


antangil http://twitpic.com/d1y50 … But it’s not us doing it! #creozerg

Worlds Not Safe

alaneckert #creozerg So did all of the carnivores have to sign an oath of vegitarianism to be able to get on Noah’s Ark? Or was there a great “un-sin”?

303dk ok, wtf is that? RT @antangil http://twitpic.com/d1y50 … But it’s not us doing it! #creozerg

NeuroPunk @303dk That’s what’ll happen if everyone suddenly believes in evolution and turns atheist! #CreoZerg

antangil #creozerg the door picture was part of the “what happens without god” section

otakursed Funny how that flood “hypothesis” of theirs doesn’t validate any of the other myths that incorporated that into the story #creozerg

calebcoch #creozerg No dinosaur with a saddle? Did they remove everything else that was rediculous? Did you see anything that wasn’t bolted down?

antangil http://yfrog.com/6gs3rj a bit more of the propaganda from #creozerg

Creation Museum Gods Word is TrueCRVW1607 Every point on this board is incorrect. And yet, they still call it “truth”. Amazing. http://yfrog.com/6gs3rj #creozerg

seelix That was a beautifully constructed, impeccably “designed” load of crap. #creozerg

N566237496_1381649_1821_normal antangil #creozerg more Adam-bashing: http://yfrog.com/15utkzj

Creation Museum Red Tooth and Claw

brentrasmussen #creozerg – Not to worry folks. Ken Ham is praying for you. http://bit.ly/14Rm8X

regardless of their attitude, they will hear the message of biblical authority and the gospel. We pray God will open their hearts to the truth—even though, like those in Romans 1, they “suppress the truth in unrighteousness.”

regardless of the creation/evolution issue, these people oppose anyone who believes in God, regardless of whether they accept Genesis as literal history.

lerogue @antangil #creozerg “Cosmic Aging”? http://yfrog.com/5gmygbj — *insert “Scanners” explody pic here*

Creation Museum cosmic agingantangil #creozerg Adam-bashing was a recurring theme, sadly. http://yfrog.com/0put7wj

Creation Museum WeedsNeuroPunk @antangil So we have Adam to thank for weed…err I mean weeds??? #CreoZerg

cyberlizard RT @antangil: #creozerg Adam-bashing was a recurring theme, sadly. http://yfrog.com/0put7wj < Surprised they weren’t blaming it all on Eve.

cj_wood I hear the creation museum’s number have been down recently, what with their flock being busy with town hall meetings… #creozerg

lewd_intentions If it’s all Adam’s fault, why don’t men have periods? #creozerg

lynnwilhelm @NeuroPunk #creozerg Eve isn’t mentioned because women were chattal and the responsibility of men–I’m sure that’s why it’s “Adam’s sin”.

Scrabcake #creozerg @lynnwilhelm how come being chattel has never let me abdicate responsibility for stuff?All of the downsides & none of the upsides.

Ibis3 RT @antangil: #creozerg Adam-bashing was a recurring theme, sadly. http://yfrog.com/0put7wj //Adam sinned so I could use a weedwhacker.

antangil #creozerg how bout a bit of flood-type humor? http://yfrog.com/3oppdj Lava? Really?


Creation Museum Ark 2Headbhang #creozerg What?! No weed before Adam’s sin!? And they called it the Garden of Eden?? Pffft.

pzmyers #creozerg weird moment: they have a big display pushing Hamite theory of African origins. Sneaky racism prob sails over most visitors heads.

Creation Museum Fossils FloodTheEvilOther @pzymyers: Also, Eve is very hot in a dark haired Nordic way / Adam: ‘Yeah, I took the apple… Meh… *So* worth it…’ #creozerg

cj_wood Epic RT for GREAT JUSTICE @pzmeyers #creozerg Also, Eve is very hot in a dark haired Nordic way. Insight: Eden must have been in SwEDEN.

johnjsal Eating the forbidden fruit is the greatest thing that happened to humanity…it gave us knowledge! (Ok, it didn’t REALLY happen!) #creozerg

andyinsdca @pzmyers Hey, saddles are only 4000 years old, how can you have a saddle and a dinosaur at the same time? #sarcasm #creozerg

mosssm It is like a natural history museum went bizarro. I kept checking all the animals for goatees. #creozerg


islanddave so Noah’s Flood was so forceful it carved out the Grand Canyon, but was calm enough that fresh and saltwater didn’t mix. #creozerg

Were saddled dinos pre-Applegate (the Fall)? If so, where did the leather for the saddles come from?

rtpt #liberal bumperstickers #creozerg ..a dead fish skeleton…”Militant Agnostic: I don’t know and neither do you” are good ones I have seen
