Cabazon, California



These are the dinosaurs that appeared in Pee Wee's Big Adventure. They're in Cabazon, California, just outside of Palm Springs on I-10.

If you walk inside the brontosaurus, you will find a gift shop devoted to creationism. You can buy shirts like this one:



Two days after we arrived, an enormous arson fire was started near Cabazon that we could see in Desert Hot Springs, about 20 miles away.

What is wrong with these people? How much BS do they actually believe? I'm tempted to think they think it's all a big joke. If that's right, then it is a pretty funny thing to put on a tshirt. But I assume they're serious. Or some weird combination of the two.

Unless my irony detector was just comepletely overwhelmed, it was totally serious. There was a video playing in the shop where some purported expert was making fun of evolutionary explanations.
