Adam & Eve & T rex

1:30 PM -- This piece on the Guardian Unlimited Website draws our attention to the Creation Museum, soon to open in Kentucky, just south of Cincinnati.

It's the brain (loosely defined) child of one Ken Ham, an Australian who is even loopier than your average creationist. For one thing, he insists the Earth is only about 6,000 years old, based on the goofilicious 17th century calculations of James Ussher (the then Primate of Ireland, though he's no relative of mine -- something on which he would insist as well). The Bishop fixed creation on the eve of October 23, 4004 BC. His scholarly tome is on sale in the museum bookstore.

Wackier still, though, is there are dinosaurs in Ham's Eden: "The first man walked with dinosaurs and named them all!" crows the Website. Also missing the Ark, apparently, were some Seuss-like critters, to judge from the site's "Museum Walk-Through":

Ham is "expecting 300,000 visitors a year. 'You've not seen anything yet,' he says with a smile."
