I was listening to the Slate Culture Gabfest yesterday and they were talking about the Darwin movie and how it could have been so much better, but instead felt like a Lifetime movie. This lead to the discussion of Darwinism vs. Creationism and one of the commentators mentioned that he had once been to this place in Florida called Holy Land, which I found funny because me and my friends have always laughed at this place, for reasons you can gather for yourself. He said that what he remembered the most about this place was the camels. He said that they were the saddest looking camels he had ever seen. HAHA! Camels don't believe in creationism either! And then this morning I was listening to the Stuff You Missed in History Class podcast, because I am a history dork, and they were talking about the Victorian Exploring Expedition, which was about men who had no idea what they were doing, exploring Australia. And the animals they took with them, who were effectually unable to navigate the terrain, CAMELS!!
