I have been to the cretin museum, on the tour with PZ even! :D my overall opinion; ummm, NO.

Mongoloid? The old, somewhat offensive term for someone with Down's Syndrome?

This is a fail on so many levels.

Are they saying that both Homo Erectus AND Neaderthal evolved from Noah having sex with his children???

11/23/2010 5:12:02 AM


...words fail me.

ETA: @Alcari: Well, it kind of almost makes sense, what with all of that incest going on.

Based on the other labels, the one labeled "Caucasian" is obviously mislabeled. It should read "Fucker".

Is this the poster they give you for winning the "Terry Mortenson Fundamentally Racist Prick" award?

Massive genetics FAIL.
And everything else FAIL too.

11/23/2010 5:55:52 AM


Seriously? This is what you are going with?

11/23/2010 5:57:22 AM


Fractal failure

11/23/2010 5:57:35 AM


Oh Gawd, mongoloids, negros, caucasians and homo erectus?

Fuck you, you inbred sisterfucker.

11/23/2010 6:02:01 AM


Wow, thats a whole lot of racism going on there. Mongoloid, WTF!

11/23/2010 6:14:47 AM


@Mudak: Sort of, but backwards. Traditionally, humans are classified into three super-races: Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid. Down (forget his first name) described a number of mental retardation syndromes, including one that he referred to as Mongoloid idiocy (the term "idiocy" being a technical term at the time), because it was accompanied by certain facial features similar to those of East Asians, even in those of non-East Asian descent.

11/23/2010 6:16:29 AM


@Lordy: Mongoloid, Caucasoid, Negroid - somewhat outdated terms, but nothing inherently pejorative about them. The misuse of the term "mongoloid" to refer to someone with "mongoloid idiocy" (Down Syndrome) derives from the use of "mongoloid" as a racial term, not the other way around.

No, just plain no. It should be illegal to teach this obviously flawed "science" to children.

11/23/2010 6:32:10 AM


Well... unfortunately the world was already inhabited at the time when God created Adam&Eve. The Sumerians were quite confused about this "God" and his pointless efforts at creating light, grass, and even two people (because light, grass, and people were already there) ;->

Please be made in 1810

Mister Spak

Why don't they include photos of Neandertal, Homo Erectus and Cro magnon? And why didn't they include Homo Heidelbergensis? And Lucy?

11/23/2010 6:45:42 AM


Add to this some scripture:

"And he said, Cursed be Canaan; a servant of servants shall he be unto his brethren.

"And he said, Blessed be the Lord God of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant.

"God shall enlarge Japheth, and he shall dwell in the tents of Shem; and Canaan shall be his servant." (Gen 9:25-27 KJV)

...and you have the exact argument made 150 years ago to justify slavery.


11/23/2010 7:02:04 AM


You forgot Australoid and Capoid:

Doctor Whom

All that has happened since Noah? I think I'll stick to modern science; the idea that evolution didn't happen requires evolution to have happened at too great a rate.

11/23/2010 7:06:31 AM


Can't be this stupid. Please, I pray to Jesus H. Christ that there aren't people in this world that are this stupid.

Your poster needs more arrows. You're missing a few skulls in there, buddy. Of course, you're also a fucking idiot so what did I really expect, right?

Ah, the old "superevolution" argument. I wonder if Mr. Mortenson would still say that Homo erectus and Neanderthals are descended from Noah if he knew that they were not as intelligent as modern humans. (There is no meaningful difference between Cro-Magnons and modern humans, so why are they listed, I wonder?) And nice subtle racism there, using outdated terms to refer to blacks and Asians, but not whites.

11/23/2010 7:39:39 AM


Totally offensive. These terms are outdated and shot through with racism. Also, this is not biblically accurate. The different races and cultures didn't spring up right after Noah's flood. In fact, this didn't happen until the Tower of Babel, when God scattered the nations and gave them different languages.
