Okay, so adding to the list of things that humiliates Kentucky on The National Media Stage, we have Exhibit A: The Creationism Museum in Northern Kentucky. For me, every mention of this travest is like a reminder of a big, festering sore that just won’t go away, but is not able to be covered up, so that EVERYONE. CAN. SEE. IT. ALL. THE. TIME. There simply is no escape.
Well, thanks to the wonder that is Boing Boing, I cam across this brilliant photo-essay and review of said museum. Here’s my favorite quote:
First, imagine, if you will, a load of horseshit. And we’re not talking just your average load of horseshit; no, we’re talking colossal load of horsehit. An epic load of horseshit. The kind of load of horseshit that has accreted over decades and has developed its own sort of ecosystem, from the flyblown chunks at the perimeter, down into the heated and decomposing center, generating explosive levels of methane as bacteria feast merrily on vintage, liquified crap. This is a Herculean load of horseshit, friends, the likes of which has not been seen since the days of Augeas.
And you look at it and you say, “Wow, what a load of horseshit.”
Brilliant! Go and check out the rest of the review by John Scalzi. It’s a great read, and a necessary exposure of the evil that is The Creationism Museum.
