That’s right, fearless reader! It won’t be DC or Marvel comics bringing you the ultimate cross-over event of the year. It won’t be Image or an indy, either. Brace yourselves for the cross-over event of the century!
Humans meet dinosaurs, courtesy of the Creation Museum! So says Instapundit:
THE CREATION MUSEUM: “Like most natural history museums, this one has exhibits showing dinosaurs roaming the earth. Except here, the giant reptiles share the forest with Adam and Eve. That, of course, is contradicted by science, but that’s the point of the $25 million Creation Museum rising fast in rural Kentucky.”
Hmm, I guess I’ve forgotten the part of Genesis where Adam kicks the ass of a bunch of velociraptors. It would have to be pre-apple, of course.
A preview of the Creation Museum’s exhibit can be found here.
We know from previous experience what happens when beings are ripped out of their own time and dumped in another: glorious mayhem! Evolution may have science behind it, but this creation stuff has summer blockbuster written all over it. Think about it, when’s the last time you heard of a big draw movie titled “The Day the Tadpole Went Flipperless” or “Monkeys to Men II: Rise of the Neanderthal”? NEVER, and with good reason.
Battle for the Planet of the Apes, however? Big! Jurassic Park? Big! Encino Man? Well, was that really the premise’s fault or Paulie Shore’s?
Anyway, it’s important to remember exactly what kind of bad can happen when you cross the timelines. In addition to the obvious things like dinosaur conquerors:
We can also do a case study. Take Conan for example. Conan is hurled through time and space in order to do something worthwhile like take on the Superskrull:
This leads to the inevitable confrontation between himself and other superheroes:
When he realizes he’s out of his league, Conan decides to take out some street level crime:
Only to upgrade his arsenal and accept the culture:
Finally becoming that which he had grown to hate:
Now is this what you want to see? It’s tragedy waiting to happen, I tell you. If you doubt it, I give you the sworn testimony of two actual doctors:
Dr. Egon Spengler: Don’t cross the streams.
Dr. Peter Venkman: Why?
Dr. Egon Spengler: It would be bad.
There you have it.
