100,000 Gullible Visitors

Recently a Creation Museum opened up near Petersburg, Kentucky, portraying how life developed the way that creationists and intelligent-designers see it. In the two months it has been open, the museum has had 100,000 visitors, or about 1600 per day. It is packing the parking lots and making for long lines. What is going on here? A huge herd of lemmings galloping on their way to an abyss of falsity?

It is amazing how many people are fooled by this creation scam. The creationists have taken an allegorical myth out of the Bible and made it into what they believe is fact. There is absolutely no evidence for their thesis. The Bible is not evidence. Instead the evidence found on this planet, including radioactive rocks, fossils, and structural similarities of organisms, point strongly to evolution of life forms out of lesser forms. I don't understand why the propagandists for creationism and intelligent design spout out their mistruths. It reminds me of the violent spouting of Islamic mullahs in the Middle East. At least the creation sort does not cause violent outbursts like the Islamic sort does.

The biggest danger is if this many people are fooled into believing this creation malarkey, they can be fooled by much more dangerous idolatries, such as those coming from Hitler's mouth against the Russians, Jews, and blacks. It's time we question those in authority, especially those in our churches.
