I recently went to the Monterey aquarium. For two hours of entertainment, it is $40. The kelp forest is interesting especially for me as I have spent time in the actual kelp forests at Monterey. When I surfaced I tried to swim on the tops of the kelp and failed. Scary.
The tentacle exhibit was interesting, as we slowly come to appreciate the extraordinary nature of our intelligent tentacled friends and begin to wonder whether they actually are in the kingdom of ‘animal’.
The jellyfish exhibit was even more interesting. It is very hard to see the extraordinary variety of jellies and consider these elegant organisms as related to us or anything else in the ocean.
Despite my enjoyment of the aquarium, every room, every sign, everything carried a preposterous message about how humans are monsters. We human idiots are destroying everything in the oceans. Someone believes with enough signs to intrude on our enjoyment of this pseudo scientific environment we will probably be cured. At least the Puritanical-goody-goody bumble brains who run this aquarium think this.
It is disturbing to me to have this false knowledge, this pseudo-everything crap being shoveled at elementary school students. Science is already in the hands of bungling ideological bimbos, but to have these bungling ideological bimbos intruding on such a beautiful place as an aquarium is a flat-out insult to any moderately intelligent human. Of any age.
