Ummm….

I was noticing my “stupidity” category only had one posting in it, when I stumbled across the perfect tidbit to change that fact: did you know they actually have a theme park for creationism?

Yup. It’s in Florida, and here’s what the website says:

The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.

Well, that about says it all. Who cares about science, right? I don’t get it. As if these ideas aren’t freely available in churches and Christian bookstores around the country, now they have to have their own theme park to inoculate young children in glorious 3-D?

Does this place have to pay taxes? Don’t even get me started if they don’t. Why should a theme park be exempt from taxation just because it’s based on the Bible? That’s about, oh, I dunno… fucking absurd?
