I just can't get over how fucking broken you have to be to think being created in an adaptable but flawed and vulnerable form and dropped into a world of pain and cruelty has more dignity to it than the idea that the wonder of this world full of snow capped mountains and puppies and strawberries was sculpted and built by microscopic natural processes over billions of years.
It is not about dignity for these people, but comfort.
His "dignity" speech may be what disturbed me most about this whole thing.
Really, when you get down to it, that's the whole crux. They don't think there's any dignity in just being human, in "merely" being alive. They shirk from the knowledge of their own existence.

Ladies and Gentlemen, let's hear it for these proud products of my home state. "Scientism, it's being taught by people, who by in large don't know enough about science to spit on." Incredible smugness in this video.
Bonus: Stifled snickering at 6:38

This is all Bush's fault.

Psalm 93:1. Take that, Copernicus!

When you're "taking back astronomy", don't forget to take back "porch monkeys." It's a bullshit package deal.
Also, take the cross off that church and slap a Wal-Mart logo on it. Look familiar?

"If the science you're doing contradicts the Bible, then its not science"
"The starting point of secular science is often that man, independent from God, can determine truth."
"Science all confirms the Bible."
There's a gap in logic big enough to drive a cruise ship through it. And they keep talking about the natural laws of the universe, and then saying that science's explanation is just chance and chaos. No recognition of the contradiction at all.

I like how the old guy justifies his faith by listing things that he is afraid of. Clearly if you are frightened by things, they are not true.

The parallels between sci-fi fandom and this are strong. The exhibit on "how did dinosaurs fit on the ark" just makes me think about when people talk about how the hallways in the Starship Enterprise had to have been laid out, etc.
- A big ass timeline that starts with 4,000 BC
- The vilification of Descartes...even though his Meditations, which start with "cogito ergo sum", end with what's essentially a "proof" of God.
- every time they showed a child having their mind raped

Look at all the coloring books behind the so called scientist.

I've been to the Creation Museum and I highly recommend it.
