    Damn, this sounds scary as hell...total BS about Adam and Eve and dinosaurs living together and there being dinosaurs on the Moses' ark, presented as fact.

    Here's a little snippit:

    That bit about the chameleons is absolutely frightening. How can straight up misinformation like this be taking place......

    What a waste of money...it could have gone to a more reasonable cause like the 'Mac Pro for Psychofreak fund' (PM me if you're interested in contributing)

    There. Fixed it for ya, OutThere.

    How anybody over the age of 6 can not realize that Genesis is a fairy tale is beyond me.

    Maybe instead of railing against this stupid museum, we should put it into its proper context. Can we find a donor to open a Star Trek museum on one side of this place, and Santa's Workshop on the other? We'll hire curators who will insist that they're real too.

    Its more likely that the 'storylines' of Star Trek are happening in galaxies far away than the stories in Genesis are real for this Earth :)

    I always found it amusing that the fundamentalists that are dead set on believing Genesis as a verbatum report on the day to day process of creation are consistently short on details about the incestuous relationships that by definition had to exist if the entire human race descended from two people. I want to know who supposedly slept with whom and which branch of the family turned oriental, which one turned white, etc. What magical moment did incest change from being a necessity to being a sin?

    I was going to stay away from this, but that place is messed up. I looked at the photo tour- simply frightening.

    Whoever she is, she came from Toledo, not animals. I'm not so sure there's a real big difference.

    it's all complete crap but I did want to comment on the chameleon part. I had jackson's chameleons and when they got pissed off they turned a dark shade, almost black and glared you down with their strange independetly moving eyes. The chameleon's mood does show in their colouring, however their reasoning for it and claiming it's not a survival thing is absurd.

    Who needs hard science when fairy tales will do? Its all about control, Its hard to tell who is worse our own federal govt or the churches. Both want the peoples minds & $$$ and both will lie their butts off to get it. Im starting to think we are a product of de-evolution.

    if ppl want to be ignorant, there is greatest freedom to do so in the Greatest country of the world, unfortunately, when large population going that way, so does the country as a whole, too bad human natural is to be easy rather than accepting the hard truth.

    We used to have a beautiful Madagascan chameleon along with various other reptiles. There was a Green iguana, a Tokay gecko, a Sudan plated lizard, the chameleon and a common garter snake all in the same shed at one point! Most of the time we saw the chameleon he was BLACK with rage defending his branch. :eek: :p

    They are amazing creatures. It was great watching him home in on a locust or cricket with those freaky eyes. They'd line up and focus together and he'd moved back and forth, side to side getting his aim ready to strike. And the little grippy feet pads! Ouch! They hurt! :p

    It's so saddening to see this "museum" teaching the future generations things that are so blatantly wrong. The true beauty of nature and science behind it being taught in this way .... *sigh* :( Where do you start?
