The animals went in two by two, hurrah! hurrah!

The elephant giraffes and the kangaroo dinosaurs.

Yes, I know that doesn't scan, but that's how it really was. If you don't believe me, there's proof -- in the form of a model -- here.

What do you mean, that's not proof? Would a diorama lie? Anyway, it's all explained really clearly in the Bible.


Now perhaps I was daydreaming my way through all the Bible readings that mentioned dinosaurs, but I have to admit that I don't ever recall noticing dinosaurs in either the Old or New Testaments. And I think I would have noticed, because dinosaurs are cool. All kids love dinosaurs.[*]

Which is presumably why the Creation Museum so desperately wanted to include them, even though it means warping Bible study so far that it's about to go twang.

Why am I mentioning this? Well, as you know, the Internet is full of things and it seems that John Scalzi was sponsored by his readers to visit the place. His report can be found here... and his full set of amazing pictures can be found here. Trust me, it really will amaze you that anyone can waste so much money on such a heap of crap. Talk about tacky...

Anyway, thanks (I think!) to anghara for linking to Scalzi's blog.

[*] Apparently. I can take them or leave them myself and I don't remember ever having more than a passing interest, even when young.
