Letters, We Get Letters

From the ol' JSH mailbag yesterday came this friendly and charming e-mail:

Mr. Holland,
I was very disappointed to see your page on the Creation Museum contain so many inaccuracies. Adam and Eve are presented as being middle brown, not Caucasian, there is no mention of people saddling dinosaurs ( the dino with a saddle on it is for picture taking), and there is absolutely no statement anywhere that says pornography and abortion are a direct result of the earth being millions of years old. Your statement that there are no reputable source citations provided for its claims is a lie. You don't agree with their opinion, that's all. Many, many educated scientists are on staff, but because they hold a different interpretation of evidence than you, they are not qualified or reputable? Your facts are wrong and you misrepresent the museum's position, isn't it funny that you did what you accuse them of doing? I am surprised your editor allowed so many lies into the book. Where is your professionalism?

To which the author responds:

I'm not going to argue about it. I never claimed to have, or to seek, "professionalism" - whatever that means. I'm a lout. I suck. So does ABC News. So does Richard Dawkins. So does City Beat. So does The Chicago Tribune. So does Scientific American. We're all totally wrong and you're totally right. You totally nailed us. Have a great day.

Devil Dinosaur was a good comic book.

Professionalism?

How quaint.
