Where you can read the relatively rational ramblings of a silly half-monkey, half-boy. This freak of nature is named Joel. He also responds to the name 'Bart Wang'.

I went to the Royal Ontario Museum today with Melanie. It was pretty interesting. There was that whole damned 'ancient Chinese art' exhibit (possibly the most boring exhibit I have ever seen). I really wanted to see the exhibit on the Underground Railroad but it was only a 20 minute movie - nothing else. The ossuary believed by some to be that of James (Jesus' brother) was there too. Very interesting.
The politics in that place are incredible. They noted that not everyone believes Jesus had full blood siblings (in order not to offend the Orthodox or Catholics). However, they also promoted evolution as the truth of the universe's origins. Now, like Forrest Gump said, "I'm not a smart man, Jenny," but I know at least a little about the fossil record and the alleged 'proof' of evolution. The Museum continues to promote the theory of gradual evolution, a position that most evolutionists have abandoned. Why? Because the fossil record does not demonstrate gradual evolution. Mark Ridley of Oxford University said, "...a lot of people just don't know what evidence the theory of evolution stands upon. They think that the main evidence is the gradual descent of one species from another in the fossil record... In any case, no real evolutionist, whether gradualist or punctuationist, uses the fossil record as evidence in favour of the theory of evolution as opposed to special creation" (New Scientist, June/81, p.831). Melanie and I noticed that there was no disclaimer that not everyone believes in the theory of evolution. I guess my position is not important enough to acknowledge. Wacky. Oh well...
