I may have told this story before. A few years ago I was at the British Museum in London, gazing lovingly at their well maintained collection of priceless treasures purloined from every nation over a period of centuries. It's a matchless trove, a veritable wonder... Anyway, I was at the Assyrian/Babylonian/Middle East end of the Museum, having a gander at ye *original* tablet whereon is recorded the Epic of Gilgamesh.

Some dude rocks up and calls people together - I thought "Brilliant! A talk about the interesting artifacts, I shall bend mine auditory sensors bequeathed to me by millenia of evolution thither". Except it wasn't Sad It was some eejit talking about how the museum dating, the tablet translation and all were most certainly wrong because it was written in the Bible that X...

As I was leaving a nervous young man handed me a pamphlet with a cartoon caricature devil in tight red pants on the cover. I kept it as a memento of how FUCKING sad Christians have to be, to be proselytizing in a museum, and how laughable the whole affair was. I mean, it was the laziest load of bullshit I've ever had the misfortune to encounter. Here at the museum you have rooms full of beautiful, unique artifacts, detailed explanations of how they know what they know of the cultures that produced them, and I'm handed this crappy little pamphlet about God and the devil, quoting goddamn *Bible* verses.

The Islam dudes were there too, handing out their pamphlets, but what I appreciated about them was the pamphlet was religious, BUT all it was about, (minus the guff about Allah the beneficient and merciful) was that there was an exhibition of Islamic artifacts currently running, and would I be interested to take a look. Also they had the common decency to do their shit in the public space *outside* the museum, and not accost people inside.

You and I need to go to the Creation Museum in Kentucky and pass out atheist pamphlets.

I’ve been to the museum, the Brits certainly have been collecting stuff during their round-the-world tours.

If you pay for a plane ticket and my ticket to the Creation Museum (and split a hotel room), I would hand out atheist pamphlets with you FC. Tongue

I'm in too! I would love to meet a bunch of non-believers in Kentucky and tour that "Ark" park. Would be epic!

I'm only 5 hours away from there. *sigh*

Well, thankfully I've gotten my new place in Kansas City and will then be a whopping 8 hours away. I can live with that distance. Five hours is too close to the brain-damage-gravity-well for comfort.

Sounds like we have the makings of the Magnificent Seven or the Seven Horsemen of the Apocalypse.
