Thank god the Museum of Animal Perspectives exists to post videos of what it looks like to walk through the woods from the top of a wolf’s head. But actually, this one is pretty good: Laughing Kookaburras
God made dirt and dirt don’t hurt, right?
“Their first big exhibit is a perfect example of the principle in action. It’s a model of a dinosaur dig, with two men working away at excavating the bones. There is a video accompanying it in which the two views are presented. The younger Asian fellow in front says, and I paraphrase, “This animal died about a hundred million years ago. Its body dried in the sun for several days before being slowly buried under layers of sediment in a local flood.” Then the avuncular creationist says, “I see the same bones, but I believe this dinosaur was killed suddenly about 4400 years ago in a huge global flood, which buried it deeply all at once.” And then he goes on to explain that see, they have the very same evidence, but he understands it in the light of God’s word.”
Here’s a quicky: a castle constructed from various drugs, 1978-1980, from the Science Museum, London. “A castle constructed from pills, capsules and medicine containers, built by the East London Health Project during the preparation of a poster relating to multi-national drug companies.” We got your uppers, downers, greenies, whiteys, blueys. WMD, y’all.
Here’s a funny story on ExhibitTricks about a prospective board and their consulting inquiry to open the World’s Best museum. When asked to elaborate, all they could come up with was, well, it should be really really big, and, you know, high tech. Imax. The Best! They could not even explain why they wanted a science museum. We guess science just lends itself to the biggest and best exhibits ever!
Well this is some bullshit, John Conyers, D(issapointing), MI, who used to busy himself fighting quixotic but honorable battles to impeach BushCo, is now trying to block open access to science journals.
And yes, the bill’s sponsors are getting donations from journal publishers. What a world!
