Why the US is Falling Behing the Rest of the World in Math and Science

A new Creation Museum has recently opened to further the claims of stupid people that Evolution isn't real, the Earth is 6000 years old and that Adam and Eve rode dinosaurs to church every Sunday. This museum is built based only on what is written in the book of Genesis, which is clearly the unedited work of God.

Ken Ham, the CEO of this soon to be out of business museum said: "We are going to answer the questions Bryan wasn't prepared to, and show that belief in every word of the Bible can be defended by modern science." "The Book of Genesis is true from the first word to the last."

What the museum doesn't address is the following:

A. Who wrote Genesis? If there was no man the first 5 days, then how would anyone know what really happened? Was it Moses? Moses wasn't born until several hundreds of years later.

B. If God said, "let there be light" on the first day, yet didn't create the Sun, Moon and Stars until the fourth day, then how could there have been "light" on the first, second and third days? And what was a "day" in those first "4 days” if the Earth wasn't revolving around the Sun? And how did the Earth stay in place so long without the gravity of the sun to keep it there?

C. How do species that no one knew existed, in a place that modern man didn't even know existed, show up in the 20th century with no previous record of their existence? Are we to believe that Noah went to the forests of Indonesia to take the Komodo Dragon back to its natural habitat after the flood? Did he then stop by Australia and drop off the Kangaroos as well? The Pandas in China, the Buffalo in North America or did he just plant a vineyard and get drunk after the flood? Anyone who knows the Bible knows the answer to this question.

D. Why are there no human fossils in the strata layers that the dinosaurs are found in and vice versa?

E. If God made Man and Woman after everything else on the 6th day in Genesis 1:27 , why did he again need to create animals in Genesis 2:19 and why did he have to make woman again in Genesis 2:22? Did man come first or did animals come first. Genesis 2:19 implies that animals were not created on the 5th day but sometime after he made Adam. And was Eve made at the same time as Adam as it says in 1:27 or from Adams rib some time later?

F. In Genesis 2:13, Eden is described as a place that has a river that also runs through Ethiopia along with the Tigris and Euphrates which we know share common areas in both modern day Iraq and Turkey. Even people who don't believe in science can't dispute modern day maps and can plainly see that Ethiopia is no where near Iraq or Turkey and that no river which runs through Ethiopia also runs through Iraq or Turkey as they are separated by the Red Sea and modern day Saudi Arabia. So if the author of Genesis is clearly wrong about the location of the Garden of Eden, what else is he wrong about? This proves that the author had nothing to do with God. God, the creator of the Earth, would have known that a river in Ethiopia did not run through Mesopotamia. I didn't even create the world and I know that the Amazon River doesn't run through Indiana and that the Tigris doesn't run through Ethiopia.

G. In Genesis 4, after Cain kills his brother, Cain is sent out of Eden but protected from vengeance for killing his brother with a mark. Who did he need protection from? Why was he worried about other people killing him? What other people? The Bible has only described 4 people so far. That being said, where did Cain's wife come from and if a City named Enoch (4:17), after their son, was built by Cain, who comprised of this city? Three people don't constitute a city. Clearly Cain’s wife didn't come from Adam and Eve because later Adam and Eve conceive Seth to replace Abel.

H. In Noah's flood, Genesis 7:20, the floodwaters were described as rising 15 cubits, thus covering the earth and the mountains. A cubit is less than two feet so that means, since the Bible is 100% accurate, that the flood waters rose about 23 feet. Most mountains are taller than 23 feet high so apparently the flood didn't cover the entire planet or mountains were really short back then. The Ark supposedly rested on top of Mount Ararat which is 16, 854 feet, much higher than 9 cubits. We know from Genesis 6:15 that the Ark was 50 x 30 cubits so there is no way that a cubit could be confused with a unit of measure such as a mile.

I. The tower of Babel in Genesis 11 is supposed to explain why there are many different languages but it doesn't explain why there are several different races. If Caucasians, Asians, Blacks, Middle Easterners, Indian (sub-continent), Aborigines and Inuits all evolved to look so different in a short period of 5000 years, why aren’t there more races of people by now? How come Japanese people are still born looking like Japanese people? Why haven't they turned into Mexicans yet? And if God was really in Heaven and not a few thousand feet up in the clouds, why would he be worried about a tower reaching him? What did he have to hide, why did he need to stop the tower from being built?

J. Speaking of different races, are they just going to ignore Neanderthals and fossil records of other species of early man? Why don't Neanderthals ever show up in the Bible? It's obvious they existed. If they are now willing to accept the fact that dinosaurs once walked the Earth, they have to also accept the fact that Neanderthals walked the Earth and also explain their place in the time line. Evolutionists can explain it, can you?

K. Who is "we" and "our" in the creation story that God is apparently talking to? Was he talking to the author of Genesis?? Who created this other person? Who created God for that matter and what had he been doing since the beginning of eternity and if he was just always there, how is that any different than someone saying the universe was just always there?

L. How does the museum deal with the "fact" that Angels have sex with human women and bore Giants? I would like to see that exhibit:

Genesis 6:
1And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them,
2That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose.
3And the LORD said, My spirit shall not always strive with man, for that he also is flesh: yet his days shall be an hundred and twenty years.
4There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.

M. If this museum is so accurate, why does Adam have a beard if he is only a few days old?

These would be a few of the questions I would like to see the creationist museum answer. What about you, do you have any of these answers?

A Savior Is Born

From CNN 9:14 pm EDT May 23rd 2007
Scientists report virgin shark birth

A hammer head shark, which has been living in an aquarium virtually all its life with 2 other female sharks, has given birth. Clearly this virgin birth is a miracle and the only logical explanation is that the father is God himself. The Messiah was later crucified by a stingray living in the same tank. God has not only sacrificed his only begotten son, but has now sacrificed his only begotten shark to save man kind from its sins.

I always wondered if it was a coincidence that hammer head sharks looked like the cross.

Behold, the Messiah:

Mock God, Reap His Vengeance

Moral Majority leader Falwell dies

Jerry Falwell, who has had a history of heart problems due to fact that he was a disgusting fat body, was found dead today shortly after breakfast. God has finally decided to punish Falwell for his life of gluttony and his complete defiance of God's will. Sure, he didn't sleep with men but gluttony is just as much of a sin as anything else.

Scriptures Jerry Falwell apparently failed to read:

Psalms 78:30
They were not estranged from their lust. But while their meat was yet in their mouths,
31The wrath of God came upon them, and slew the fattest of them, and smote down the chosen men of Israel.

Proverbs 23:2
And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.

Proverbs 23:21
For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty: and drowsiness shall clothe a man with rags

Proverbs 25:16
Hast thou found honey? eat so much as is sufficient for thee, lest thou be filled therewith, and vomit it.

Phillipians 3:19
Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things

Philippians 4:5
Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand

1 Corinthians 6:19
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?

1 Corintians 10:31
Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God

James 4:
2Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not.
3Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
4Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

Ezekiel 16:49
Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.
And just think, you thought Sodom was destroyed because of homos.

Deuteronomy 21:
20And they shall say unto the elders of his city, This our son is stubborn and rebellious, he will not obey our voice; he is a glutton, and a drunkard.
21And all the men of his city shall stone him with stones, that he die: so shalt thou put evil away from among you; and all Israel shall hear, and fear.
22And if a man have committed a sin worthy of death, and he be to be put to death, and thou hang him on a tree

Southern Baptists, in particular, have the highest rates of obesity at 27%. Other Protestant denominations like the Church of Christ, Pentacostals and Church of God come in at 22%. Obesity for Jews is at about 1% and Islam, Buddhism (ironically) and Hindus all have obesity rates under 1% according to a Purdue University study.

A look back on some of Falwells greatest hits:

On 9/11
"The abortionist’s have got to bear some burden for this because God will not be mocked. And when we destroy 40 million little innocent babies, we make God mad. I really believe that the pagans, and the abortionists, and the feminists, and the gays and the lesbians who are actively trying to make that an alternative lifestyle, the ACLU, People for the American Way, all of them who have tried to secularize America, I point the finger in their face and say: you helped this happen."

On Feminism:
"I listen to feminists and all these radical gals... These women just need a man in the house. That's all they need. Most of the feminists need a man to tell them what time of day it is and to lead them home. And they blew it and they're mad at all men. Feminists hate men. They're sexist. They hate men; that's their problem."

On Separation of Church and State and his tax exempt status:
“It is the responsibility of...every evangelical get serious about re-electing President Bush."

“The idea that religion and politics don't mix was invented by the Devil(apparently meaning Thomas Jefferson) to keep Christians from running their own country.”

On AIDS and the fact that the majority of AIDS victims are heterosexual:
“AIDS is the wrath of a just God against homosexuals. To oppose it would be like an Israelite jumping in the Red Sea to save one of Pharoah's chariotters.”

On other religions:
"I think Muhammad was a terrorist. I read enough of the history of his life written by both Muslims and - non-Muslims, (to know) that he was a -- a violent man, a man of war."
I guess I'm not really going to dispute that, but it almost makes this whole thing a big religious war doesn't it.

On the Teletubbies:
"He is purple -- the gay-pride color, "and his antenna is shaped like a triangle-- the gay pride symbol." "These subtle depictions are no doubt intentional and parents are warned to be alert to these elements of the series."

On how well Religious schools have worked in Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia:
"I hope I live to see the day when, as in the early days of our country, we won't have any public schools. The churches will have taken them over again and Christians will be running them. What a happy day that will be!"

On Jews:
“Is the Antichrist alive and here today?""because when he appears during theribulation period he will be a full-grown counterfeit of Christ. Of course he'll be Jewish."

On community relations and compassion for others points of view:
“And we're going to invite PETA [to "Wild Game Night"] as our special guest, P-E-T-A -- People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. We want you to come, we're going to give you a top seat there, so you can sit there and suffer. This is one of my special groups, another one's the ACLU, another is the NOW – the National Order of Witches [sic]. We've got -- I've got a lot of special groups.”
