According to my girlfriend, Bowling Green, Kentucky (her hometown) is known for two things: caves and Corvettes. The iconic sports cars are built there and the National Corvette Museum celebrates the city’s automotive legacy. The place is also sitting on top of limestone deposits that often give way into the Mammoth Cave system they form as they are eroded by water over time.

On Wednesday, this security cam video from inside the Corvette Museum appeared on YouTube. It captures a massive sinkhole opening beneath an exhibition of the cars, showing two of the vehicles disappearing entirely…

As of this report, 8 cars are confirmed to have been swallowed by the gaping hole. Our deepest condolences go out to their widows and children.

Creationism ‘Hall Of Fame’ Museum To Be Built In Kentucky

Pack the kids in the car and take them to see all of their favorite creationist heroes — a perfect unlearning opportunity. The Guardian reports:

A stretch of interstate in northern Kentucky may soon be the official capital for creationism fans across the globe. Online-only institution the Creation Science Hall of Fame hopes to establish a real-life creationism center located between the Creation Museum and planned creationism theme park Ark Encounter.

The hall of fame website was launched in February and honors “those who honored God’s word as literally written in Genesis.” Any scientist who the institution believes furthers the scientifically inaccurate idea that God created the world 6,000 years ago can be included.

There are several creationism institutions in the US, including another creation museum in Texas and a mobile museum that takes fossil exhibits to churches and schools. The hall of fame would solidify northern Kentucky as the center for creation-tourism.

Clay County, Kentucky: Precinct Worker Testifies She Stole Votes

Clay, County KentuckyBill Estep writes in the Lexington Herald-Leader:

FRANKFORT — A former Clay County precinct worker testified Friday that top election officers in the county taught her how to change people’s choices on voting machines to steal votes in the May 2006 primary.

Wanda White testified that Clerk Freddy Thompson — the county’s chief election officer — helped show her how to manipulate voting machines along with Charles Wayne Jones, the Democratic election commissioner.

The scheme involved duping people to walk away from the voting computer before they had finished their selections, then changing their choices, said White, the Democratic judge in a precinct in Manchester.

White said she stole more than 100 votes that election. “It was easy done,” she said.

White said she also went into the booth with people who had sold their vote to make sure they cast ballots for the candidates who had paid.

Kentucky Approves Bible Classes For Public Schools

BibleLEX18.com via the AP reports:

FRANKFORT (AP) — Kentucky may follow the lead of Texas and a handful of other states in allowing Bible classes to be taught in public schools.

The Senate Education Committee on Thursday unanimously approved legislation that would effectively return the Bible to classrooms across Kentucky.

“The purpose is to allow the Bible to be used for its literature content as well as its art and cultural and social studies content,” said state Sen. David Boswell, D-Owensboro, chief sponsor of the bill that is modeled after a Texas measure.

Under the Kentucky proposal, Bible courses would be offered as electives, meaning schools could choose whether to offer them to students as a social studies credit and that students could decide whether to take them.

Boswell said he believes the legislation is constitutional because the Bible won’t be taught from a religious perspective. What sets the legislation apart, he said, is that it proposes teaching, not preaching, the Bible.
