Disclaimer: Have you caught all the Pokemon? 

Sponsor: The Ark Encounter.

God of the week: Noah. Not really a god, but close enough?

Topic: Ken Ham's Ark Encounter in rural Kentucky. The nearly $100 million theme park based around rape and incest is receiving about $18 million in taxpayer money. We're a bit upset about this situation. Dan went to the Ark though, so you don't have to! He's ready to tell you all about it.

You can see pictures on the blog post.

Quote of the Week: To criticize a person for their race is manifestly irrational and ridiculous, but to criticize their religion, that is a right. That is a freedom. The freedom to criticize ideas, any ideas - even if they are sincerely held beliefs - is one of the fundamental freedoms of society. A law which attempts to say you can criticize and ridicule ideas as long as they are not religious ideas is a very peculiar law indeed. - Rowan Atkinson
