Real Museums welcome all people, including those who tell people different stories about what they see at the museum. However, it's just infuriating to see news reports about the (sic) Biblically Correct Tours invading a normal museum and teaching stupid lies to small children right in front of the many people who come and enjoy their visit at the National Center of Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado and other museums around it.
I applaud the great patience, the virtues, and the tolerance of the curators and the scientists working at the museum towards the group. But, as for me, I would not be able to tolerate them at all. If I was the curator of that museum, I would throw them out and tell them not to come back to the museum ever again because they have no right to insinuate themselves into authentic natural history museums just to spread poison into the minds of people, especially children, with stupid lies in the face of valid physical evidence pointing to the contrary and I have zero tolerance for creationists who spread lies for God, say it's all true, and used the Bible like a magic charm to help get rid of competition and gag those who wants to oppose their views openly.
Through twisted logic, Rusty Carter, a creationist scoundrel who's one of the ringleaders behind the tours, indoctrinates hapless homeschooler families to young earthism by using the most dim-witted, stupidest of statements ever thrown to a hapless child.
"Museums are the secular temples of our day. If you watch people walk in, especially in (Denver's) Museum of Nature and Science, they fold their hands reverently, they speak in hushed tones, they don't let kids touch." says Bill Jack, the founder of the program (stupidly).
Response: NO museum is a temple where we go and worship the artifacts that are on display over there. Museums are a place where people can go and learn about the past. It's a special institution strongly dedicated to preserving the roots of the past, whether it's the natural past or the historical past, so that people can learn about who we are, where we come from, and how we got here. There is a special reason as to why museum curators don't let people touch the artifacts. They don't want anything to happen to the artifacts and much of the artifacts at the museum are highly fragile and breakable. They speak in hushed tones in many cases so that people and students can concentrate on their scientific studies and observations without having loud noises and other distractions disturb them and break their concentration.
How do they like it if we have a group of evolutionists and atheists take a school full of kids to a creationist "museum" like Ken Ham's Crackhouse every day and go around exposing every lie and and every deception the museum contains inside and out, doing exactly the very same way these 2 scoundrels are doing to natural history museums in the Colorado area? If they're not going to respect the natural history museums and the people who work there to make the museum be everything the museum stands for, then why should we respect the creationists and their creation "museums?"
Here's some of the most idiotic statements the ringleaders of the Tours spits out to their gullible tourists are.
THORNE: "We can look at the genealogy that's contained both in genesis and in Matthew. We can piece enough history together with enough families to trace our heritage all the way back to Adam and Eve. And from the time of the fall on forward, roughly 6,000 years has passed."
If that's so, then how do you explain civilizations dating back to 10,000 years such as China, Japan, and Egypt? Nope, I guess you can't. Using genealogies, which may have gaps in them and eventful dates in the Bible, which are out of order in many cases, to calculate the age of the earth and the universe don't really add up. There is nothing biblical about the earth being created 6,000 years ago at the time of the Egyptian Predynastic era and the construction of Stonehenge.
GALLAGHER: "Most scientists will tell you that's nowhere near the time needed for evolution."
Yeah there is! Ever heard of young earth evolution, a form of evolution that teaches all animals developed instantly and rapidly from the original animals since creation and the flood?
JACK: "Because evolution is not good science. It's a pseudoscience, but it does one thing well. It gets rid of the need for God."
It doesn't and Jack knows it! That kind of statement Jack displays is no different than Tom Cruise's attitude towards psychiatry. The only thing that does get rid of the need for God is creationism itself who makes God into a liar when they say the world is young while the scientific evidence says "No way."
"According to evolution, millions of years ago, there were dinosaurs and lizards. And millions of years later, they turned into things like turtles, and iguanas, and ostriches, and polar bears, and chimpanzees"
A dumb, lying statement only an idiot will believe! Evolution, in reality, teach NONE of these things!
"The museum's displays are mere fiction and just artwork."
Exactly what Ken Ham's Crackhouse has! The Creation Museum and Family Research Center's only displays mere fiction and just artwork!
These are all excerpts from CNN's Transcripts of The Debate Over Intelligent Design that aired on November 25, 2005. You can read all about it here.
Then a few years later, Dinochick gave out this article that really made my blood boil about those scoundrels giving out tours at a real prestigious museum in Colorado, mentally abusing the minds of children with stupid lies, the most brain dead of idiocy, and nonsense beyond nonsense. How can any museum ever, EVER allow such things to occur!? :mad:
Such things like that really affirms and solidifies John Stear's truthful opinion that poisoning children with lies and ignorance is one of the worst forms of child abuse ever performed. Indoctrinating children into false teaching is one thing, but doing it at a hallowed, prestigious museum is murder!
Look at what the 2 knuckleheads are teaching to the kids!
"Standing in the lobby of the Denver Museum of Nature & Science, Bill Jack and Rusty Carter pointed to the enormous teeth on the reproduced skeleton of a Tyrannosaurs Rex, and told a group of children and their parents that the fearsome T-Rex was really a vegetarian.
They said the T-Rex was vegetarian because at the time of the Creation, there was no such thing as death, so a T-Rex could not have eaten meat. There was no death until Adam and Eve ate forbidden fruit from the tree of knowledge, they continued, and God's revenge was to curse the world with death
There was such a thing as death before Adam and Eve ate the tree of knowledge. Have you ever heard of plant death? What about the Tree of life? If there was no such thing as death, then God would've never bothered to put the Tree of Life in the garden in the first place. An if Tyrannosaurus rex was a vegetarian, then all of the features of a carnivore God put in T.rex would have been totally worthless. Now get a load of this headache,
"Jack asked, 'If this creature was designed to eat meat from the very start, what would he have to do until Adam and Eve sinned and death entered the world? What would he have to do?' The children replied in chorus, 'Starve.'</em>
'Fast and pray for The Fall. Is that likely?' Jack asked. The answer is, everyone look at me and say, 'No.' Try that with me.' 'No!' the children replied."
Starve? Fast? Pray? Ha! Since when did God gave an animal that can't think and reason the ability to fast and pray for it to be set up for the Fall? This is a statement only an idiot will believe! If starvation, fasting and praying to be duped doesn't make T.rex suffer, the indigestion of plants will! Plants and fruit will make T.rex sicker than a dog. His stomach as well as his claws, teeth, and eye facing forward is not designed to digest plants, but only meat instead.
I'm not going to look at the article to spare myself from a long lingering headache. You just going to have to take some Excedrin pills and see the article for yourself… if you dare.
Having creationist scoundrels come along and loudly advertise their ignorance and slander is the last thing one could ever see and hear in a real, authentic museum. It is very sickening to see a relaxing visit to a museum get ruined by annoying scoundrels, like these two men, who openly preached about a scenario that don't exist and say that all of what the museum displays is all a lie, the Bible's all true, God says so, evolutionists will burn in Hell, Blah Blah Blah.
