adam and eve: the truth revealed!

Salon has a piece today on my favorite museum. In the article, they run this beautiful image of Adam and Eve as they appear in one of the museum’s galleries. All is not what it seems, however. The second photo shown here was smuggled out at great risk to a fellow blogger. Look closely. Do you see what I see? Yes, Adam and Eve weren’t people at all. They were just oversized Rockem Sockem Robots!

    I know Linette won’t let me, but I’d love to take a photo of her and me in that same pose in our bathtub.

    They have, like, ZERO reproductive organs!
    That is NO WAY to go forth and multiply!

    (Eve’s top half is pretty hot, though).

    I assume a baby dinosaur will be perched on her right hand. Something is obviously distracting her there while Adam goes after those head lice.

    “Pay first, then you can touch.”

    This exhibit obviously depicts the genesis of the world’s oldest profession. I’m just wondering why the designers chose a swamp as the setting.

    It looks to me like he’s lactating into her hand.

    LOL!! Okay, Skinner, that’s enough! I just snorted coffee up my nose. Pesky critters, those head lice.

    Actually, she’s stopping him from smacking her upside the head for suggesting again that they go eat from the Tree of Knowledge. She catches his hand this time. The magic apple was there in the display, but some kid from the Church of the Last Temptation of Christ tour group took it and auctioned it off in eBay for thirty pieces of silver.

    Your post is funny, Mark, but the article is pretty scary. I guess I hope that it ends up failing and it ends up just being a bug waste of money. Or maybe better, that it barely turns a profit, but takes a lot of the money of the faithful so that they can’t use it for more nefarious useful purposes (like buying bomb paraphenalia for abortion clinics… (I’d like God to come down and tell me how to spell parephenalia!))

    So, Eve is obviously looking at Adam’s spunk in her hand and he is trying to get some of it out of her hair. I mean, that much is clear!

    One more thing… this This Modern World cartoon seems appropriate: http://www.workingforchange.com/comic.cfm?itemid=22368

    I didn’t mention it, but the first thing that I thought of when I heard about the $27 million project was Autoworld, the huge, failed attraction in Flint, Michigan. I thought that the Creation Museum, not able to bring in enough visitors to keep it up, would probably be closed within a decade. Lately, however, I’m not so sure. I think, because of the subject matter (remember, they also have exhibits on abortion and other hot button issues), they’ll be able to keep getting big checks from the conservative base… I think, in other words, that Ken Ham may have just built himself a goose that lays golden eggs.
