The Creationism Musuem… Must… Go… There.

January 4th, 2010 Comments off

At the Creationism Museum you can teach your little ones "real" history... like the "fact" that people rode Triceratops by putting saddles on them. Yep, good science.

There is a magical land about 5 miles west of Cincinnati where the beauty of imagination meets the batshit crazy of Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin. This land is the Creationism Museum.

Back when it opened, Ed Rothstein of the New York Times did a critical writeup of it, and Wired announced it was the last straw of crazy.  I can’t say I disagree with Wired on much of anything… least of all this.

I have long sought the opportunity or reason to visit Petersburg, KY to see the Museum, but have had no excuse to go to Cincy. I initially thought the museum was in the south-central part of Kentucky, in which case I could have driven up during a trip to Nashville, but there is really little excuse to ever intentionally go to Ohio, much less Kentucky. So, alas, I have to rely on the visits of others for photographic evidence of the insanity.
