Unsurprisingly, I’m a big fan of PZ Myers’ blog Pharyngula. Scientific smackdown of religion is totally my thing. Also: octopus!
He writes fairly often about this guy named Ken Ham, which is how I initially came to learn of his existence. Ken Ham is a young earth creationist and evolution denier from Australia, who has been in the US to spread the word about the literal truth of Noah’s Ark. He’s even been trying to build a Noah’s Ark theme park for years.
Excuse me while I go laugh my ass off.
Anyway, his newest “facts” involve humans having walked the earth with dinosaurs. Apparently he has “proof”. A fossil. I want to see this fossil. I want this fossil sent to the microanalytical lab on campus for testing. Seriously, we’ve got all your age dating needs! We can probably even find a way to get the analysis done for free! You know, for science…
