Umm, 1906, but hey, they're making headway!. Turns out the circus side show is the cutting edge of creationist (and neo-creationist for you inteligent design loons) "science" education
. The Lost World Museum, a museum created to promote creationism has purchased the remains of the famed Cyclops Kitty as THE CENTER PIECE of their collection. That's right, a one eyed schnozless cat is all the proof some folks need to prove the fossil record was planted by evil liberal scientists
on labor day weekend 1973. Imagine what these folks would believe if they could get a two headed calf for the collection. Lobster Boy is proof that elves exist and cookies are their gifts to mankind! Kevin Padian, curator at the University of California Museum of Paleontology in Berkeley and president of National Center for Science Education said it best, "For them, 'The Flintstones' is a documentary."
I believe it was Job who said in Leviticus 3:16, "There's a sucker born every minute."S.O.L.
