Anywhackjob, where was I? Ummm, oh yes. thordaddy's educated-sounding five-dollar-words brought to mind that goofy practice of the Christian/Evangelical/Fundamentalist recruitment gurus (There I go again, mixing religious terminology!) wherein they attempt to disprove knowledge gained through the scientific method. The most obvious and ludicrous example is of course Christo-paleontology, so that's the one I'm going with. Plus it's an easy target, and if I do very much research, I'll get too angry to write.
Someday I'm going to visit the Creation Museum in Kentucky, but I'll be sure to bring a barf bag. And a handkerchief to stuff in my mouth so as not to offend with my snorts and barks of mirth (in between bouts of nausea.) I don't know if the above image is from said museum, nor do I give a

|I'm crying "foul!" It's f*ing smiling at me!|
In conclusion, (yes, now I'm lecturing you...) this is a frighteningly perfect example of the kind of
