Because if it's in the Bible, it must be true

O.K., maybe this doesn't really qualify as news, more like entertainment, but it's just so damn snarkilicious that I needed to share.

By now, most of you have heard of the Creation Museum which opened to great fanfare earlier this summer, in Northern Kentucky. For those of you unaware, it pays homage to the historical narrative put forth in the Bible. You know, the whole literal interpretation of the Bible, the part where the earth is 6,000 years old, Adam and Eve rode around on Dinosaurs, and Noah's flood created the dramatic landscape of the Rockies and Grand Canyon.

See Cubswin39's excellent diary about his trip there.

Ready? Good. Now, put down your beverage and follow this link to the Unicorn Museum website.

"Based on the idea of 'if it's in the Bible, it must be true', The Unicorn Museum promotes belief in the Biblical Truth of unicorns, a creature mentioned nine times in the KJV Bible. (My sister says that must be the Kentuckiana Justified Version)

"This website has been published as an act of protest by the Brotherhood of Fantasy Creatures (MiddleEarth Div.157) in response to the injurious actions of the Creation Museum.

"Our goal is to raise donations from the human population sufficient to place a Unicorn Museum billboard near the site of the Creation Museum. This will help build awareness in the human community of alternative fantasy creatures and help us regain our rightful place among the human pantheon of gods and monsters. Please Donate and help us reach our goal."

Check out the user submitted Billboard proposals and vote for your favorite! Then scroll down and see the shocking and disturbing Unicorn Hunter images!

I know it's hard to draw the line where snark ends and serious begins ... so let me explain a bit. The "Unicorn Museum" is a joke. The Billboard idea is for real. Their goal is to raise enough money to put up a billboard en route to the Creation Museum, the effects on families traveling to the CM I can only begin to fathom. Will they think it's one and the same? Will they ask mommy and daddy if they can go to the Unicorn Museum later that day? Will it perhaps knock a grain of sense into their consciousness, that maybe, just maybe, not everything in the bible is literally true?

I hope to sit back and watch the fun unfold.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
