Camels With Hammers pares down the first 5 hours of the twitter feed of visitors to the Creation Museum and offers you the highlights. Start reading from the bottom of the thread for chronological flow and then join the real time discussion at #cregozerg.

And please stick around and check out my regular Camels With Hammers posts on philosophy, ethics, and atheism! On the right hand of the top of the screen, you’ll find a long list of original remarks.
With no further ado, this morning’s liveblogging proceedings recapped in reverse chronological order:

12:37pm: RobertFCD Eating at Dino cafe. Brought lunch. Make sure you send SSA your stupidity sequestration credits.
12:37pm: RobsterFCD The Dino with saddle is Here! But reserved for 12 and under. Does shoe size count?

12:31pm Niall142 I wish I was going on this trip! DAMN YOU, ATLANTIC OCEAN!!
12:29pm RobsterFCD None of the theropods had feathers! That’s what you get for buying secondhand dinos.
12:28pm RobsterFCD The men in white movie was histerical. The creos have nothing new. It’s all old lies. Salt in ocean. Helium in zircon.

11:46am jbcrail Finished the tour. No incidents as expected. Everyone was well-behaved. Can’t wait to see commentaries from biologists.
11:28am ymberlenis Of course, I suppose the major flaw is that we are on the only habitable planet in the universe… right?

11:23 BlagHag: “That’s what she said”:

chomskyinthesky About 300 atheists in a Creation Museum. Check Adam out, God either created him without body hair or he shaves his armpits. Tsk!
