If you're not part of the solution...

The local paper had an insert today for the Flintstones Creation "Museum", in anticipation of their dinosaur exhibit opening July 4:

As my brother noted, they seem to be really stressing dinosaurs, perhaps to disassociate themselves from the real lunatics.

What really offended me was that they've gotten deals with various hotels that will offer reduced rates if you mention the "museum":

Country Inn & Suites, Drawbridge Inn, Sheraton, Courtyard Marriott, Hyatt Place, are rewarding indoctrinating people with the belief that the universe is only 10,000 years old by offering them reduced rates. Possibly more than those; their website lists a few other hotels on its website, telling people to "Be sure to ask for the 'Creation Museum' rate."

On the positive side, two of those coupons are discounts to establishments inside the "museum" itself: Noah's Café and the Dragon Hall Bookstore.

And as an aside, I am bemused by the notion of biblical literalists advertising that they are open 7 days a week.
