Tour of the Creation Museum with a Sarcastic Sci-Fi Writer

John Scalzi, writer of Old Man's War and the Whatever blog, was dared by his readers to go check out the Creation Museum. He did. And then posted an awesome review/photo tour complete with snarky commentary:

And this is, in sum, the Creation Museum. $27 million has purchased the very best monument to an enormous load of horseshit that you could possibly ever hope to see. I enjoyed my visit, admired the craft with which the whole thing was put together, and was never once convinced that what I was seeing celebrated was anything more or less than horseshit. Popular horseshit? Undoubtedly. Horseshit hallowed by tradition and consecrated by time? Just so. Horseshit of the finest possible quality? I would not argue the point. And yet, even so: Horseshit. Complete horseshit. Utter horseshit. Total horseshit. Horseshit, horseshit, horseshit, horseshit. I pity the people who swallow it whole.

Awesome, and well worth a read. H/T to Boing Boing for this one.
