Edu-macating Canada… Hey!

Museum Of Horrors

Little Museum Of Canadian Horrors

According to a new poll, about 58% of Canadians accept evolution while 22% think the human race was “created in their present form within the last 10,000 years”. The rest are unsure. What’s surprising is that the frozen, bacon munchers to the north are only slightly more scientifically literate than Americans. (A previous poll indicated 53% of Americans accept evolution). That 5% difference adds up to America having a $27 million dollar creation museum while Canada has a shack. But don’t despair, both American and Canadian Creationists use the same hackneyed arguments to support their pseudo-scientific nonsense. All the money in the world can’t pollish a turd.       

P.S. A visitor to the Canadian shack is quoted as actually saying, “We drove 2,000 kilometers to come see this museum.” Even if the price of a gallon of gas were 10 cents it wouldn’t have been worth it.

    True enough. What’s unfortunate though is that there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of people willing to ‘ooh’ and ‘aah’ a turd rolled in glitter which is exactly what this ‘museum’ is.

    Hi, Ray Russ

    “a turd rolled in glitter”

    It’s true. Some people do find a glittering turd appealing. But great science museums outnumber these song and dance establishments. There’s a UK creationist organization that frequently visits the London Natural History Museum. Of course, the members add their own Biblical interpretation to the exhibits. But it goes to show that real science is more beautiful than glitter.

    I’ve seen video and pics of Ken Ham’s creation museum in Kentucky, which cost a mere $25 million. It’s nothing in comparison to the new $500 million California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco. People demand content.
