Creation Museum

I'm sure you've heard about it by now. Here are a couple of my favorite pertinent quotes:

From a blogger who chronicled his attendance of the museum (and took lots of pictures):

The wise white paleontologist doesn’t need that whole “carbon-dating” bullshit, for he only needs the Bible to tell him how old these fossils are. Meanwhile, the Asian paleontologist uses all that so-called “logic”, “reason” and “scientific method” to come to the ridiculous conclusion that these fossils are from many millions of years ago. Whatever, Confucius! Put down those science books and pick up the Bible, that’s all you need to get to the truth!

From the May 31st issue of The Economist:

The debate about the origins of everything is presented even-handedly. Some people trust God, accept that the universe is 6,000 years old and will go to heaven. Others trust human reason, think the Big Bang happened 14 billion years ago and, having abandoned God, are quite likely to start browsing the Internet for pornography or commit genocide.

Bloggers snark all the time, but when you draw this level of sarcasm from The Economist you are really accomplishing something.
