Dinosaurs were in Eden and on Noah's Ark.....

robinbloke seems to have beaten me slightly to this link but I'll repeat it here with some choice quotes thrown in. Some people really do scare me.....

Would You Adam N' Eve It...... Dinosaurs In Eden (Observer On-Line; Sunday 22nd May 2005)

"Gallup surveys have shown that about 45 per cent of Americans believe the Earth was created by God within the past 10,000 years."

"The museum forms part of a Bible-based theme park in Eureka Springs; the car park is full of cars and coaches from all over the country. To enter the museum is to explore a surrealistic parallel world. Biblical quotes appear on displays. The first has dinosaurs, alongside Adam and Eve, living in harmony. The ferociously fanged T. rex is likely to be a vegetarian. Then comes the Fall of Man and an ugly world where dinosaurs prey on each other and the first extinctions occur. The destruction of the dinosaurs is explained, not by a comet striking the Earth 65 million years ago, but by the Flood. This, the museum says, wiped out most of the dinosaurs still alive and created the Grand Canyon and huge layers of sedimentary rock seen around the world."

"Some dinosaurs survived on Noah's ark. One poster explains that Noah would have chosen juvenile dinosaurs to save space. An illustration shows two green sauropods in the ark alongside more conventional elephants and lions. The final exhibit depicts the Ice Age, where the last dinosaurs existed with woolly mammoths until the cold and hunting by cavemen caused them to die out."

"It was built in co-operation with the 'New Holy Land' theme park which re-created the biblical Middle East in the Ozarks. A huge statue of Christ, the largest in North America, looms over Eureka Springs. The site is the setting for The Great Passion Play, where each night in a 4,500-strong arena the last days of Christ are acted out. The play has attracted more than 7.2 million people."

"But creationism is seeking to become more influential in other parts of the country. In Kansas the state school board recently held public hearings on the validity of evolution and the teaching of 'Intelligent Design' (ID) in classrooms. The hearings were boycotted by scientists who believed they were rigged against evolutionists. The theory of ID holds that the world is so complex it must have been created, and has been dubbed 'creationism lite' by its critics. Kansas is now expected to recommend schools to include ID-friendly material in its science courses this summer."

"Creationism has found one high-level voice. President George Bush famously proclaimed: 'The jury is still out on evolution.' A CBS survey late last year showed that 45 per cent of Bush voters wanted creationism taught in schools instead of evolution, compared to 24 per cent of voters for John Kerry. 'Under the Bush presidency, we are clearly able to get a lot more done,' Sharp said."

(Meme) Suicide

Overdose. You don't like being depressed and you
care a lot about how your death will affect the
people around you but you just can't take it
anymore. You see this simply as a way of
getting out of the pain that consumes you. All
you want is a private and peaceful demise.

My God, It's Full Of.....Women?

Taking a break from inputting bloody tons of 7" singles onto E-Bay. Already bored with it, just hope a few of them sell....

Anyway, was looking at this weeks 'Angus World' and it looks damn fine. So fine that it's completely full of women.

Monday I'm catching up with mooncadet whom I've not actually seen since she moved up to London (naughty me). I have a feeling it's going to be more of a raid on my DVD collection on her part that a drunken catch-up though. She only wants me for my possessions I tell you....

Tuesday I'll be entertaining the lovely Belinda and hopefully dazzling her with my salad-making skills.

Wednesday I've double-girl goodness. Sarah is coming over and Lousia is probably starting to drop some of her belongings around. I guess it might even be triple-girly goodness as Jade might be joining her. We'll see.....

Thursday is games night this week and keeping up with the 'Girly' theme apart from Dom, Seth and myself we do have a female member of our little cabal. Nicole should be waving the charming feminine flag on Thursday night whilst trying to defeat us fellas over a borad/card game or two....

Friday....not sure what's happening on Friday as yet but Sarah will almost certainly be over.

All in all a busy old week for me coming up. I have Wednesday off to try and get some other work done (plus more ebay putting up...groan) .

I wish more weeks looked liked this one ;D
