Revealing clientele

Bill Nye the Science Guy, humanist of the year, science educator and entertainer, and all-around interesting fellow, apparently stopped briefly at the Creation “Museum” to take a quick picture of the exterior, and then moved on. How do we know? Ken Ham was watching.

Bill Nye (“The Science Guy” of PBS-TV fame) visited the Creation Museum for…… 2 minutes this past week. He only stopped in front of the museum to take photos. In our photo attached, he is standing in the driveway in front of the museum. He did not go inside. Including the drive in and out the gate, he was on-site for a total of 122 seconds. He was last year’s “Humanist of the Year” – see my blog: <”>>

You have to admit, though, Kenny…the lies inside the “museum” are obnoxious, the guard dogs and tasers aren’t particularly inviting, and now the revelation that the staff creepily obsesses over surveillance footage is more than a little off-putting. It’s an extraordinarily paranoid place.

Perhaps Ken will be happier with another guest, one who has begged special permission to visit the Creation “Museum”: Jeffrey D. Bornhoeft. He’s more of a Creation “Museum” kind of guy.

An Ohio man — who killed his ex-wife’s new husband but was found not guilty by reason of insanity in 2000 — has received permission to leave the state to visit the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky.

It will mark the first time in 11 years that Jeffrey D. Bornhoeft will be allowed to leave Ohio for a trip his father said he is taking because he has become involved with a church since the shooting death.

The court-approved trip, which is scheduled for Saturday, is the latest step toward freedom for Bornhoeft since Nov. 7, 2000, when a Warren County jury found him not guilty by reason of insanity in the shooting death of Jamey Johnson, 23, of Dayton.

During his trial, authorities said Bornhoeft had his ex-wife, Shawn “Candy” Johnson, on the phone as he fired three shots at close range from a .357-caliber revolver into the back of Johnson’s head while he slept in a Lebanon apartment. Bornhoeft then threatened to turn the gun on himself during a three-hour standoff that ended when he surrendered to Lebanon police.

He may be a cold-blooded murderer, but at least he’s not a humanist.

Oh, and just in case you were making plans…Saturday is probably not the best day to visit Ken Ham. Although I am looking forward to his blog post in which he brags about how Jeffrey Bornhoeft actually came all the way into the “Museum”, and just loved the exhibits.
