I detest Ken Ham and his kind. About 5 years ago I had a good discussion with PZ Myers about it when it was first proposed. I said then that I would lampoon the Ark in the Park as a lark whenever I could. Imagine if Noah and his wife Joan of Arc went around telling everyone that the world was only a few hundred years old and that god intended to drown everybody plus all the animals. But it is when I remind myself of what he intends to do to the minds of young children that I turn into bad company!!
Why is Mary in a glass box? Shouldn't her worshippers be allowed to touch her?
Catholics are really into their worship of idols and icons. The glass box is to stop them licking her.
Q: What do they call the poorest medical student in each year's graduating class?
Read the article about the ark because I just think Hamm and his ilk are a scream. I keep reading that more and more people are fleeing religion and embracing secularism. It can't happen fast enough for me.
