MORNING PAPER

First of all - side note: I HAVEN'T BEEN ABLE TO ADD / ADD-BACK PEOPLE RECENTLY.  So I apologise.  I don't know what the prob is, but I get a blank screen (taskbars are OK) everytime I try to add.  Tried tweaking my security settings - no luck.  I think this is my own comp's prob, but if it's happening to anyone else please let me know.

On to the news of the world...

Image Tyrannosaurus rex was a strict vegetarian, and lived with Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden.

There were dinosaurs of every kind aboard Noah's ark. Some dinosaurs managed to hang around until just a few hundred years ago. The legend of St.George slaying the dragon? That probably was a dinosaur.


Exhibits showing all this and more will be at the Creation Museum, a $27 million religious showcase nearing completion in Northern Kentucky.

The museum, in Boone County near the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, is being built by a non-profit group called Answers in Genesis. It is scheduled to open on Memorial Day. Museum and Northern Kentucky tourism officials are expecting it to be a boon to the region, bringing in at least 250,000 visitors in its first year.

It already is getting media attention. Newspapers and television stations from Europe, Asia and Australia have visited, and CNN was there Friday.

And a bit of religious sanity, for measure:

"My confidence in venturing into science lies in my basic belief that as in science so in Buddhism, understanding the nature of reality is pursued by means of critical investigation: if scientific analysis were conclusively to demonstrate certain claims in Buddhism to be false,then we must accept the findings of science and abandon those claims."
