Creation Museum Opens

I have a confession to make: when it comes to the evolution vs creation debate, it bores me to tears. As far as I can tell, this is not a winnable debate because to quote Stephen Jay Gould, religion and science are non-overlapping magisteria. But it's important news, and thank goodness a lot of people still find it worth discussion. Especially this week, when the Creation Museum, a museum full of fictive dioramas based on the Bible and nothing else, opened in New York.

  • 500 Years of Female Portraiture on Youtube via Shelley Esaak on About.com's Art History
  • Caral, a 10 minute video on the ancient archaeological site of Caral-Supe, from Peru, in Spanish. Lots of others are linked in the sidebar.
  • In Transit, 15 minute video on a famous archaeological 'dig' on a van used on the Ironbridge project, from Greg Bailey on TAC (their 100th!). An interesting introduction to archaeological methods.

It’s too bad you’re bored. Maybe you should go to the Creation Museum! There actually IS much overlap between Creationism and Evolutionism (not to be confused with science). They both use the exact same evidence but look at it with different “glasses”. They both believe in micro “evolution”, but evolutionists like to confuse the issue by using proofs for micro evolution to prove macro evolution, for which there is not a shred of solid evidence. And that is just the beginning…
