We had spent several days visiting all sorts of geological, astronomical, and pioneer sites in New Mexico, Colorado, and Wyoming. Now it was time to stop at a place that is devoid of science, even though they call it the “Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum.”
Instead of explaining the truth about dinosaurs and known history, this “museum” purveys Christian mythology as fact, even showing dioramas where raptors walked side by side with humans.
The employees of this “museum” felt compelled to follow us around as if we were common criminals. Eventually their curiosity got the best of them, and they finally confronted us to determine our intentions. We just wanted to check out their museum, nothing more. But now that we had an audience, I asked some simple questions like “What did the carnivores eat after they departed the Ark?” and “Why didn’t god tell Noah to load the Ark up with eggs, instead of living birds, insects, turtles, and other shell-based animals?”
They didn’t really have compelling answers, in fact, one of the workers was impressed by my second question. It’s not every day that I think of something that appears to be a better plan than God’s plan. Just another day in being awesome.
