If the dream of a New Jersey group comes to fruition there could be another creationist attraction located in Northern Kentucky.
Founders of the Creation Science Hall of Fame, which now exists only as a website, would like to develop a brick-and mortar structure along Interstate 75.
“When we have the funds, we would like to locate on the highway, about halfway between the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter,” said Terry Hurlbut, secretary/treasurer of the group. “What better place to locate than between these two attractions? We envision that as people fly or drive in to see them, we will be a stop along the way.”
Oh good, just what I needed within shouting distance of my apartment, first the Scientology Church Of Greater Cincinnati, now the Hall Of Wildly Misappropriated Science Heroes.
The Creation Science Hall of Fame was developed as a website in 2009 and is devoted to sharing the beliefs of creationism.
It includes a directory of living and deceased inductees and a brief profile of each.
The section dedicated to deceased inductees begins with the Renaissance period.
The list includes Leonardo da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, Samuel F.B. Morse, Louis Pasteur and George Washington Carver.
Living inductees include Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis and the Creation Museum.
Isaac Newton’s ghost is going to knife him some Kentuckians, dammit.
On the other hand, if the place has an animatronic Nikola Tesla on a velociraptor, I’m stealing it before the place accidentally gets napalmed and covered in bees. Evolved bees.
