If I ever do have a dull moment or two, there’s always the internet. Just a click or two away the world awaits! I know everyone has his/her own favorites, but at least a couple of weird things have caught my attention lately and I’d really like to share them with you.
A museum open in Kentucky in the spring of 2007 that presents an account of the origins of the universe–life, mankind, and man’s early history according to the literal interpretation of the Book of Genesis. Brought to fruition by an Australian who moved to this country in 1987, it’s called the Creation Museum, and hopes to recruit converts of all its visitors who aren’t Christians already. It rejects evolution theory, asserting that the Earth and all of its life forms were created 6000 years ago over a six-day period. Its exhibits incorporate the idea that humans and dinosaurs once coexisted, and that dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark, all in stark contrast to the scientific community’s determination that the earth is approximately 4.5 billion years old, and that the dinosaurs became extinct 65.5 million years before humans showed up.
I got not only a little glimpse into the Museum itself, but figuratively saw it myself in pictures, both word and digital, through the eyes of a science-based educated non-Christian in this blog post he calls “Kentucky Fried Creation.” If, like me, you’re interested in seeing but not really enough to go to the bother of actually going there, you may enjoy what he has to show and tell.
Now, if you’ve had trouble with the big “C”-word lately, no not cancer because as a survivor I’ve demoted that c-word to small letters; no, I mean the one that means elimination. Did I hear a yes somewhere in the back row? Would it surprise you if I say that you may be wearing the wrong bra? Does yours have an underwire? Actually, the last few years I’ve found it hard to find any other kind, and I don’t have a bust size that really requires underwire support. You may want to read this inspiring “weird science” post. Live and learn. Really!
Just in case, that’s not enough diversion for your Monday, I invite you to enjoy this YouTube visit with this toddler who has a lot of serious stuff to say. It takes her about four minutes if you can spare the time. Just a thought: this may possibly be the first female president of the United States. See for yourself:
