FREAK Shots: Creative Science

A reader sent us this picture of a “Creation Museum” and a medical lab side-by-side in Santee, California. Sure, it’s no diapers-and-condoms bundle, but interesting nonetheless.

    Even more interesting – they are owned by the same person/company according to the ‘museum’s website!

    In Jerusalem, there is “The Institute of Science and Halacha,” which makes for an interesting name, even if it is something of a misnomer (the institute actually certifies electric/electronic devices as “OK” according to Jewish Law).

    Stretching really hard to make something out of nothing. And the point is…irrelevant.

    Why do you assume there is a dichotomy? Just because they reject Godless Materialism, doesn’t mean they reject the scientific method or for that manner most of modern science. This seems to be the same tired formula of Science =Fact, Religion=Opinion and Fact > Opinion. Only to superficial thinkers.

    It’s called “hedging”, isn’t it? If the lab is destroyed by a thunderbolt, attendance and profit at the museum will go up.

    I tend to agree with Chris’ comment above.

    Every time something like this comes up I’m reminded of the South Park episode about evolution. At some point early in the episode Stan asks “Can’t evolution be the answer for how, now why?” and proceeds to get berated by a teacher.

    Rejecting evolution IS rejecting A LOT of modern science!
