Inside the Creationist Museum

Post categories:

Up All Night interviewed Ken Ham of the Creationist Museum . The museum has been dubbed by Eugenie Scott, director of the National Centre for Science Education, as a “creationist Disneyland”. (There are some photos purporting to be of the inside of the museum here. )

But if you find yourself swayed by creationism some in the blogosphere would like you to consider an alternative. Blogger Bobby Henderson has popularised a pasta-based creation story :The Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Bobby's tongue-in-cheek argument is that his account of pasta based creation was just as valid as those of the hard-line creationists, and deserved a place in the curriculum of American schools too (creationists have argued in several US states that their account of the origin of species should sit alongside The Origin of Species in schools). No word on whether a Flying Spaghetti Monster theme park is planned yet, but I'm sure it would have a great cafeteria.
