Not to worry, there are enough of us within an hours drive to insure that that guy goes completely crazy within a year and goes back down under.

With my recovering Baptist upbringing I have a solid foundation with which to ask all the right questions during the tours.

Questions like "If Noah took two dogs onboard the ark and then, after they left the ark on Mt Ararararararat they became the 387 breeds currently recognized doesn't that mean they EVOLVED?

Or, let's ask a question about population and let the Creationist answer with Creation based Math: If we create a simple formula using today's population of ~6 billion, and figure in the starting population (8 individuals), and the starting time (4360 YBP), we get an annual growth rate of about 0.0047. Since that IS what happened, according to creationists, and it IS the only possible explanation for today's human population then...

At Christ's death there were only about half a million people in the whole world!

At the time the Israelites entered Canaan, (about 1180 BCE) we get a world population of 2024! By the time you divide that up between Egypt, Canaan, the rest of the world, and Israel, that leaves maybe 6 or 7 people for the Israelite army!

If we go back to the time that the Jews were expelled from Egypt, in 1560 BCE, we get a world population of only 340 people!

In 2300 BCE there were only about 10 people on Earth! How did fewer than a dozen people build the pyramids?

See, and they say tourism in Kentucky can't be fun.

Kentucky has already done more than its share in providing the world with a reason to live.

One of the most important paleological sites in the world is in Glen Rose, Tx, about an hour southwest of Dallas. The Paluxy River Valley is loaded with fossilized dinosaur tracks exposed by the river eroding sediment until it exposed the bed rock and its hundreds of fascinating dinosaur tracks. Some nut opened a "creation museum" across the street from the site. He was caught chiseling fake human footprints into a sauropod track.

Did you have to serve time, or were you only fined for that FoTL?

I am sure you can count on the fact that the last person on earth who would be involved with a creation museum is me. You on the other hand, was probably their first sucker, er, ah, I mean customer.

I don't need a museum, I was there................ When they find the cartridge cases that killed all the dinosaurs, remember it was me that shot the bastards..

Doesn't that population math assume that nobody ever dies? The Bible certainly talks about a lot of people dying. My question is this - how many kids did each of the 8 need to have (on average), carried out exponentially, to be able to account for everyone that died after the floods?

Further west is the Permian Basin, from which one of the Palaeozoic eras takes its name.

In my lifetime, I have seen disproportionate amount of goons and cavemens hailing from that particular part of the US. How fitting then it is to name a prehistoric period in light of them.
