A Scientist Reviews the Ark Encounter
Kentucky Gets an Ark-Shaped Second Creation “Museum”
A Walkthrough and Review of the Ark Encounter

By Dan Phelps, President, Kentucky Paleontological Society

https://ncse.com/library-resource/kentuc...ion-museum

There's a lot to dig into here, and it'll certainly keep you occupied for quite some time. I mean, we all know it and Ken Ham are bullshit, but it's fun to read someone with the accredited cojones rip it a new one.

RE: A Scientist Reviews the Ark Encounter
Thanks, EK, that is fascinating.

Only did a scan this time round, so many familiar fallacies!

Did find one if those unthought-about-but-obvious-once-you-see-them things . . .Sand. Takes a long time rolling back and forth in the tides for big lumps of rock to become small rounded ones, let alone tiny grains of sand! Take a while even with glaciation grinding away make the global volumes involved.

Thanks for the link. Like Gloucester I've had a skim through the article. Some dreadfully dishonest "science" in that Mythological Theme Park.

I will read the article tomorrow. I am off my face on med's right now.

Many thanks. Smile

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.

NCSE is great! They did the most definitive and awesome take down I've ever read on the flood myth.

Reading the review made my head hurt. Mis-information is so easily dessimated and afterwards so difficult to cast off.

I pity the kids who are taught this shit and then try and enter an accredited college or university.

Unless they were entering a science course involving biology or evolution would creationism vs evolution come up as an issue in entry requirements? I can see colleges glossing over it if it meant filling the rosters and getting the fees in.

RE: A Scientist Reviews the Ark Encounter
Thanks for posting. Ugh, the tweaking of science to fit into the Bible 'cause faith. The Statement of faith placards were so creepy to me. Basically, who cares what has been proven in modern times, go with the Scriptural ramblings of some ancient peoples instead. Also, their adding into the Noah story with how they *think* he might have handled various situations-i.e why there were no polar bears on the ark, what they did with the poo, the ventilation system, how freshwater/saltwater fish survived, how animals were fed their natural diet etc. was so incredibly ludicrous.

Oops, forgot how the college system works over there.
