I'm not sure what I'm more depressed about, the existence of this "museum" or the fact that people pay money to go visit it and believe it as truth...

Oh definitely the latter. There are always nutters doing nutter stuff. They are one offs. The problem occurs when the ideas of the nutter spreads and people actually believe the nonsense.

Of course we could be completely wrong and the guy who built the museum is a genius knowing there are enough bible thumping people out there to make money from !!!!!!!!!!!

I'm no creationist, but I am absolutely astonished that so many people have their panties in such a colossal bunch over this thing. I mean honestly.

Because it's funded by the state and is tax exempt. A for-profit company shouldn't be legible for either.

Oh, and the discrimination against people who aren't "believers" who might want a job there.

*sigh*

Yes I know. I actually can read, (in spite of many accusations to the contrary). But it's a drop in the bucket as far as potentially misused funds, and it is a grey area as far as that goes as well.

I'll stand by my bewilderment at all the manufactured, (and downright silly) outrage. To repeat:

I mean honestly. And now with an added Good Grief, for additional emphasis to twist those knickers of yours just a little more.

Well, you wouldn't want to let them out. Look what happened at Jurassic Park! These raptors are bad news. I sure wouldn't want the job of cleaning those cages.

In 2011 the US Supreme Court upheld a decision by the 9th Circuit that said Christian based organizations can hire only people that affirm the organization's statement of faith, and can fire people who reject it. It was the World Vision case.

it's kind of odd, the judge upheld the idea that gov't funds could be used for this,
but then turns around and says that they are exempt from anti-discrimination laws and can only hire christians because of the ministerial aspect of the museum.

were any federal funds used for this? and is it possible that some states don't have to acknowledge the separation of church and state?

And how is that any different from hiring only blacks, only whites, only men, only women, etc?

I'm sure there would be millions of people against that law (and I'm betting the Supreme Court) if it was Muslims instead of Christians.

They chose not to hear the case which is not the same thing as upholding it, also, this is a for profit company that built the ark while World Vision was deemed a humanitarian organization.

Mandela effect - Unapishtim





Utnapishtim, or Utanapishtim, is a character in the epic of Gilgamesh who is tasked by Enki (Ea) to abandon his worldly possessions and create a giant ship to be called The Preserver of Life. He was also tasked with bringing his wife, family, and relatives along with the craftsmen of his village, baby animals and grains.[1] The oncoming flood would wipe out all animals and humans that were not on the ship, a concept that was mirrored by the biblical story of Noah's Ark. After twelve days on the water, Utnapishtim opened the hatch of his ship to look around and saw the slopes of Mount Nisir, where he rested his ship for seven days. On the seventh day, he sent a dove out to see if the water had receded, and the dove could find nothing but water, so it returned. Then he sent out a swallow, and just as before, it returned, having found nothing. Finally, Utnapishtim sent out a raven, and the raven saw that the waters had receded, so it circled around, but did not return. Utnapishtim then set all the animals free, and made a sacrifice to the gods. The gods came, and because he had preserved the seed of man while remaining loyal and trusting of his gods, Utnapishtim and his wife were given immortality, as well as a place among the heavenly gods.

That means the lower court ruling was upheld.

Can Victoria Secret refuse to hire obese women?

It does not mean the Supreme Court upheld the ruling, it means they chose not to hear it, there is a legal difference.

Fair enough.

And Answers In Genesis is a non-profit organization.

As models or just a part of the company?

If just a part of the company, no. As obesity wouldn't stop them doing there job, unless there was a specific health reason.

If as models, yes. The models clothes (or lack thereof) are specifically designed for a certain sized person to model.

BTW, Victoria secret models have nothing to do with a theme park. Why would you need to believe in a god, let alone be a young earth believer, to sweep a floor, pour drinks, serve food etc?

Answers in Genesis is technically not the owners of the ark.

I would visit that theme park. Daily.

Only way it could be better is if they served my favorite kind of beer.
