Creationist group fundraises with Alaskan cruise

http://www.answersingenesis.org is set to open their "Creationist Museum":http://www.answersingenesis.org/museum/ recently "profiled":http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/programmes/from_our_own_correspondent/6549595.stm by the BBC in less than 2 months. If you'd heard about it before and wondered what exactly is going to make such a place (or a "creationist cruise":http://www.answersingenesis.org/events/details.aspx?Event_ID=5256) all that different, I've done the research. From their website: *What is so different about this museum?* ??Almost all natural history museums proclaim an evolutionary, humanistic worldview. For example, they will typically place dinosaurs on an evolutionary timeline millions of years before man. AiG’s museum will proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and will show that there is a Creator, and that this Creator is Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:15-20), who is our Savior.?? That's right, dinosaurs existed concurrently with humans, in fact the predatory ones were even vegetarians because "before the sin of Adam, the world was perfect. All creatures were vegetarian." Too much creationism around for your taste? Enjoy some secular science at the "National Center for Science Education":http://www.ncseweb.org/default.asp.

Chimps seen hunting with spears

Evolution happens. Whether it’s a dog breed artificially selected to be long and hot dog-like or a group of people adapting an economic system that seemed to have worked for their more prosperous neighbors, things evolve. As yet another example of primate intelligence and social evolution happening right out in nature, Senegalese chimps have been seen using spears to hunt bushbabies. This report comes as complete hearsay with absolutely no evidence but it’s still so damned exciting I just had to share it. Apparently the full story will be published in the next issue of “Current Biology”:http://www.current-biology.com/ but here’s a “synopsis”:http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/6387611.stm from our friends at the BBC.
