Catholic Apologists reason why god made dinosaurs.

Nothing surprises me anymore. I was talking to an evangelical just recently, and when I mentioned original sin, he got a confused look on his face and said, "Original sin? What's that?"

@Obfuskation - sounds like someone was pulling your appendage.

My mom believes that crap. I groan inwardly any time she says something about it. Ugh...

Whenever they can't explain something, Christians always have that "The Lord works in mysterious ways" option, which of course is a conversation stopper.

The Catholic World Congress ended today here in Ireland. I heard some people being interviewed on the news and I can honestly say that nothing they said made sense. It was all just happy platitudes about Jeebus and rhetoric about revival of the spirit and the truth of the gospel. Pure simple minded drivel for weak minded sheep. Over one thousand male priests dress up in robes praying to a non existent god that they may grow in faith in these challenging times. WTF! The next news item was about the successful launch of the Chinese rocket into space with a woman on board. That’s what they get for being such a godless society :-)

WTF???? Yep, me too... times like this... give up.

This is where I am totally embarrased and mortified as an Australian and I apologise profusely - the frigging loony tune that started this supposed museum is an Australian - who goes by the name Ken Ham. Is it possible to say, that somebody just happened to find him under a rock - and adopted him, or something!!!

One laugh out loud moment was when the Creation Museum pulled a video of  Adam and Eve after learning that the actor that plays Adam owns a free love website.

Dear Folks:

We have another Creation Museum here in southern Oregon near Medford. We keep driving by on our way to the river, but never stoped. As a natural history hobbist, I would rather spend our hard earned dollars on the rafting trip, than getting into a debate tizzy over Jesus fries.

@Suzanne - I visited your link for Ken Ham, and while on the site, found a link for Creationist and Young Earth advocate Kent Hovind, who, as we speak, is doing his proselytizing from a Federal prison cell, where he is spending 10 years for tax evasion.

I discovered that it is not just Kent Hovind, but rather, Dr. Kent Hovind, "Dr." Hovind having been granted a Doctorate in Who-the-hell-cares from Patriot Bible University, which, though franchised in a number of major cities, is actually operated from, and by the lone of, a double-wide trailer in the mountains of Colorado:

<style="text-align: center;">Patriot University Headquarters

For years, "Dr." Hovind has declined to publish his Doctoral dissertation, but thanks to the good people of Wikileaks, that information is now available to any and all in PDF format, simply by clicking on the underlined phrase above.

Basically, Hovind expresses his opinion during the first third of the work - that evolution is the source of all evil and is also a religion, and as such, should be prohibited from being taught in public schools - and then repeats the same opinion twice more, in slightly different words, some badly misspelled (the "Bib Bang theory"), to complete the thesis.

If the "work" had any saving grace (can I say that here?) whatsoever, it would be in this single sentence: "Chapter nine discusses the "best evidence" evolutionists have for evolution, that is, archaeopteryx."

And they said I would never amount to anything --
