I agree Govt. is villain - but do you deny Church is villain? Are they not in collusion in this, and we are the victims, two against one - the People?

Don't they amount to One Big Villain? Sure dey do.

Once again, the thread has veered off topic. Please continue discussion of anything other than the creation museum in a new thread. This is strictly for discussion of the Creation Museum.

Perhaps you have not read the thread entirely AND understood. I really don't see how anyone could CLAIM that.

The Creation "Museum", in the first instance of the first Post, was presented as an attack mounted with Taxpayer Dollars. In the process, we have been directed to detailed online criticism of the museum's content, and a large body of for-against argument on the points presented at the "Museum". The "Museum" content viewing is over now, and minuscule in comparison to the real question - who pays for this shit?

A better approach might be - change the label on the thread itself.

All of it largely irrelevant - if they do it themselves, which they MUST be free to do - the core remaining question is - why should everyone have to pay for it; for if I can be forced to pay for this, perhaps I will eventually be forced to pay for my own public execution as an Atheist.

The great ORIGINAL question remains - do we pay for it? If so, who is forcing me - and how - and for what purpose? The "Museum" is merely a beginning, illustrative point worth little - except as a single example among countless examples.

Argument means little if the result can't be tied together with the larger structure of reality.

OR split it at the point of derail and make two threads out of one. :D

I viewed the OP and read every post and understood it well enough to conclude it had veered off too much. It's no big deal to start a new thread, just as you have done. Very appropriate to do so, and it'll make for a good read, most likely.

Thanks, and no sweat, Loffler. I really just wanted to keep the portion of the Creation Museum tax issues separate from the thread when it became a broader topic. What would have been a better choice would be to split the topics, but provide linking to the original. The broader discussion was worthy of its own thread, in my opinion.

Looks like its been added now anyway, so it will keep rolling along nicely.

I haven't, but if I was anywhere near there and had the chance, I think I'd have to see it for myself.

My eyes crossed two minutes into the video.

It just doesn't make sense.
