The Lost World


well, wait, there's more. Kidz Art, for one. And a dress-your-lamb-of-god game. And, truly, proof [scroll down for the photo] that dinosaurs still walk the earth. Take that, Chas. Darwin.

As a fan of violent weather I salivate at the thought of the whole earth's history happening in 6,000 years (to say nothing of the birth and death of many, many stars). A complete ice age every thousand years and the continents moving about as fast as you can swim. Erosion events like the Grand Canyon would have been done as if with rivers of concentrated acid or something. The Himelayas formed during Ben Franklin's lifetime!

Most recent encounter I had with a Creationist was my 9th grade biology student Mike, smartest kid in his entire class, might be a Bronx Science valedictorian someday. He approached me after class to politely protest that me using the word "evolution" made him angry.

The site appears to be a hoax, and yet... who has that much free time?

you want me to believe the Zounds Abstinence Shorts are a hoax?

"These boxer shorts feature the Zounds YRM logo with the inspirational words "Radically Abstinent, Saved & Saving it!" A great way to show the youths that abstinence is "where it's at"."

But really, it seems nearly impossible to tell if the site is a hoax. Mr. Hirmes, please help. Maybe if we pray on it.

that has to be the finest use of a .us domain name i've seen.

All I can say is I wish I had the work ethic of whoever put that site together. Protestant or otherwise.

okay, judging by a google search, I'm willing to admit the possibility that the site is hoax:

Though more deadpan than even CLUI. And more genius, as in its refutation of the heresy of Triclavianism, the belief that three and only three nails were used to affix Chirst to the Cross.

Did a whois on the domain. Googled the phone number listed and it comes up as the tech contact for some porn sites among other things. The company itself, Idea Flood Inc is "an intellectual property generation and holding company specializing in core Internet advertising and operating
technologies." Okey dokey. Then again, they're just the registrar, so there may not be any direct connection. What I really want to know is what high school year book or company prospectus they stole all those "About Us" headshots from.
