    You want to see what a Christian Nation has brought us?

    And the construction of the Ark, to which the state of Kentucky donated a 30 million dollar tax break to cover expenses (as a tourist attraction), but which apparently was not a technical problem to Noah and his sons. They had lots of boatbuilding knowledge, equal to today’s monster tankers.

    Gretchen Jennings, editor of Exhibitionist, wrote that creationist museums like the Creation Museum are not museums at all, and said that if they applied for accreditation as museums, their applications should be denied.[4]

    As of 2014, no creationist museums have been accredited by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM).[81] National Center for Science Education (NCSE) director Eugenie Scott characterized the Creation Museum as “the Creationist Disneyland”.[82] Writing for the NCSE, Daniel Phelps called the Creation Museum “the Anti-Museum”, while PZ Myers called it “Ken Ham’s fabulous fake museum” in a 2007 post on his Pharyngula blog; other mainstream scientists derisively dubbed it the “Fred and Wilma Flintstone Museum”.[83][84][85] In a 2013 blog post, Ken Ham responded to such criticisms by writing that the Creation Museum is a true museum, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary and the AAM’s website.

    It’s not “time”, it’s development. If a zygote is as valuable as a child about to come out of the womb, then we should be taking all possible measures to save every fertilized egg. Women should be required to go to the doctor immediately after sex and be sure it implants. They should be nurtured and kept healthy for that first month so they do not spontaneously abort. Your “what have we become” question must be answered for that time, or it is meaningless.

    Well, that’s the Chinese way. From the moment the mother-in-law is aware that the family has an heir, she orders special herbal soups to be served to the daughter-in-law every morning as nourishment for the new family blessing. The young mother gets foot massages to improve her blood circulation and chi flow for the duration of her pregnancy. It’s an heir, an auspicious family blessing. Its not a zygote. This is why they see us as white devils.

    A)  You don’t really believe that do you.  Okay, I’m sure it’s that way for the fairly princes, but in the real world, it’s tough to swallow.

    B)  What’s with the Chinese way – disconnect from reality is disconnected from physical reality no matter what language you’re doing it in.

    C)  Yeah a zygote is a potential heir – we’ll if it’s a guy, what about the girls?

    D)  The mantle of personhood is awarded to those who survive the birth canal.
