Ken Ham Carnival!

You may have heard that Ken Ham is opening his freak show circus Museum of Creation “Science” in Cincinnati on May 28th. There will be protesters picketing. Hopefully there will also be people who will come in and laugh out loud at each exhibited piece. I also hope that the media coverage will be funny – and that is where we in the blogosphere can help.
Archy has all the information about it and has suggested a one-day carnival (an apt name for the thing, for once) of sorts which will appear on May 27th on Pharyngula.
So, write something and send the Permalink to PZ or blogswarm it by linking to the carnival. PZ will actually take the best quotes from each entry – a good idea if the blogswarm brings the carnival up high on the Google searches that day when all the journalists are trying to cover the story.
If you are better at drawing or photoshopping than writing, Left ‘Toon Lane is organizing a cartoon contest for the occasion and PZ will showcase those as well.
Now go, be creative and have fun!

  1. Eh, I’m gonna opt out.
    The entry I’m gonna write is why I as a Christian and a scientist am very bothered by this creation museum — but that’s not the kind of thing I’m going to send to PZ.

  2. By all means do Rob. The more varied the philosophical predispositions among the critics, the more collective credibility we have. Our target audience is heterogeneous, so why not have a heterogeneous approach as well? Don’t think none of us militant atheists can appreciate the effectiveness of less aggresive approaches.

    That may be true of you, but I wrote of PZ long ago.
    My views of PZ are something along the lines of Phil Plait’s new views of Patric Moore : http://www.badastronomy.com/bablog/2007/05/08/patrick-moore-blows-it-big-time/

  4. You compare PZ to a sexist? I don’t think that had the desired effect on me.
