Creationists Auction Monster Fossil to Save Museum

A Creationist museum in Crosbyton, Texas hopes to get itself out of financial trouble with the proceeds from the sale of its biggest and best exhibit: the World's Largest Mastodon Skull. Called, "Lone Star," the reconstructed prehistoric fossil was auctioned yesterday for $191,200 to an unnamed buyer. The money may help the debt-ridden Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum stay open, hoping to avoid a legal shuttering and sale of its assets. Then it can continue to teach the public about the implausibility of Evolution. Their slogan: "Digging up the facts of God's Creation: One fossil at a time."

We wonder, though, whether some vile voodoo Evolutionists bought the skull and plan to exploit it at their own fly-by-night science museum?

Find out more about the Mt. Blanco Fossil Museum at their web site. Meanwhile, one of our fave Intelligent Design attractions, also in Texas, is the Creation Evidence Museum, just down the road from where man and dinosaur apparently walked together.
