God needs a Creationism exhibit in Tulsa!

God needs a Creationism exhibit in Tulsa!

For a change, here's something amusing on the religion front. The recent brouhaha at the Kentucky Creationism Museum, which last week was descended upon by atheist professor Dr. P.Z. Myers and some 300+ non-believers, along with the seizure for "tax fraud" of Dinosaur Adventure Land, the creationist theme park in South Carolina, have evidently inspired others to "honor" God with more wacky human works of the same ilk.

In this regard, a current candidate for the office of mayor in Tulsa, Oklahoma, has decided that what God really needs is a Creationism exhibit at the Tulsa Zoo! Yes, that's right, the God of the universe "needs to be honored in the city," according to Republican Anna Falling:

As part of that effort, Falling has resurrected a failed push for an exhibit at the Tulsa Zoo that would tell the Genesis story of God creating the world in six days and resting on the seventh, originally proposed by Christian activist Dan Hicks in 2005, Tulsa World reported.

The all-powerful, self-contained God of the cosmos "needs" something! In fact, he needs to be honored in Tulsa, of all places! You see, God is fascinated by Tulsa—and he really likes the silly Creationist museums, theme parks and exhibits that humans put together. So, we can be sure that God will nod his gigantic head in approval when more of these kooky displays pop up in American cities. What fun—the circus is coming to town!

But, seriously, would not such a god, were he real, be honored best by the daring and sublime critical thought exhibited most often by doubters in organized religion, rather than the extreme gullibility and simple-mindedness adhered to by bibliolaters and assorted other religionists?
