The Creation Museum event is over a week away and the publicity is starting.
Steve Goble from the Mansfield NewsJournal is fascinated with the museum:
Perhaps, like me, you harbor a morbid fascination for the infamous Creation Museum near Cincinnati.
Maybe you’ve even opined that you’d prefer to have your skin peeled off — followed by a bath in orange juice — than spend a day at the Creation Museum.
There’s this morbidly curious side of me, however, that wants to see the vegetarian velociraptors.
He encourages readers to join the Secular Student Alliance on our trip there.
I really liked this excerpt from the article:
This field trip with Myers might be enough to get me inside the place. Walking through with a group of science geeks would be a blast; it’d be sort of like Mystery Science Theatre 3000, only we’d be heckling exhibits instead of bad sci-fi movies. Everyone would be racing to get off the best one-liners. The comedic competition alone would be intense.
Now that’s an aspect of this trip that hasn’t really been discussed.
With so many atheists (nearly 250 at last count) coming together for this event, I wonder how different their write-ups will be. No one wants to read 200 blog postings covering the same info.
We’ll all be trying to get different pictures, have different experiences, talk to different people… collectively, I imagine this will be more than you ever wanted to know about the museum
