RE: Kentucky Fried Creation

…Kentucky was labeled 'most ignorant state', because some fundies built a breeding shed for creationists?

This is from http://www.answersingenesis.org

“Why did you choose the Cincinnati area?
About 2/3 of America’s population can drive to Cincinnati in one day! In addition to those 170 million Americans, millions of Canadians in the provinces of Ontario and Quebec can also drive here in one day. Most convenient, the museum will be close to I-75, the busiest north/south interstate in America.”

Yes you are correct that this “museum” is located in Kentucky… but so is the Cincinnati Airport.

The creation “museum” has a map on their webpage, if you would like to get a better geographical idea of where it’s located.

Edwin Kagin, the state director for American Atheist, has expressed his concerns… along many student organizations from UL and UK.

Peace.

Here's the map from their web site.

I didn't realize Ohio was so small . . . and elliptical.

They must draw maps the same way they explain science.

Hey, I think this is the same place we dissed in a previous thread a while back. The place with the cheezy virtual tour.

Coulter

It looks like Ann Coulter is just saying stuff without supporting it just as Pat Robertson does regarding biological evolution. I think these people do not know what biological evolution is just as I did not until I found http://www.talkorigins.org , then Evolution 101 podcast, and then this podcast (interview with Dr. Zach). I personally do not want to listen to Coulter, because I seen no educational value in that, because her calims have already been studied and they are boring. Most people can say God did it, but a much smaller group can explain modular biology and so I think Coulter is much more interested in money than knowledge. Coulter does not understand biological evolution and yet she is telling people that is it not a fact and implying that biologists are nuts. There is an interesting article in Science http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/summary/313/5788/765 that I hope to get read sometime.

I think that if there was really good science education people such as Coulter would not be able to convice people that eolution is not fact simply because they those people would understand evolution unlike Coulter, but it is not the case and so many of us Americians do not understand evolution and yet we believe what others who also do not understand it say about it. The main thing is not to let any one such as Coulter take science away from what would otherwise be tomorrows scientists. I think it is okay for Coulter to say and write nonsense, but I hope that anyone reading that stuff of hers will read it analyticaly. For me I think it is just a waste of time and could just make me confused and require that I use my brain and think about what I am reading.

I like this podcast series a lot and I have finally learned what science is and why it is so important.
