Dillards 78: Taste the Rainbow

Recommended Posts

Just coming here to post about the museum...this is where they went. https://midamericamuseum.org/ If they were at a real museum that talks about dinosaurs in a factful timeline I may lay down for a second. 

ETA: It's a real museum!

Prepare to lay down then! The website talks about how the dinosaurs are from the Jurassic, Triassic, and Cretaceous periods and an article about the exhibit talks about how kids learn different scientific facts about the dinosaurs they encounter.

I know, I've followed her column and youtube for a few months now and everything up until this has actually been pretty well researched. I admit I didn't always care for it (personally I'd rather take a long walk off a short pier then pay attention to the Teen Mom news but that's just me) but it did always come across as well done.  The Duggars aren't really her brand of crazy though so I'm pretty sure she's relying on this 1 source for most things. I hope in the future she does better research on the Duggars so she can at least get her facts straight. 

I just stumbled upon this:

Looking at Katie Joy's Twitter is making me begin to think she's  a bottom of the barrel "muckraker". Ick.

Huh. “Speculation on anti-cult snark boards” = “open secret in the quiverfull community”.

It’s an open secret in the quiverfull community that Anna regrets choosing an M theme and is thinking of naming their next daughter Hayley.

It’s an open secret in the quiverfull community that Derrick hates Michelle and blames her for what Josh did to Jill.

It’s an open secret in the quiverfull community that Jill Rodrigues asked Anna Duggar to be bridesmaid at the upcoming Keller/Rod wedding without actually consulting the bride and groom.

 I should write for gossip magazines.

Just swap ‘speculation on the anti cult boards’ for ‘an anonymous source.’

Yikes, I hadn't seen that before - though i only follow her youtube for the most part - definitely unsubscribing over that. That's an extremely dangerous thing to insinuate about a person in a cult like this. You're definitely right about how her twitter makes her look.

The speculation about Josiah bring gay is annoying we have seen nothing to suggest he is gay, just a few people deciding that how he acted on an edited TV show made him look gay. 

Josiah and Lauren admitting that the first year of marriage was difficult for them, due to them losing their first pregnancy and they are probably terrified something bad will happen again. They were also both going from living with family to getting married to someone they had never been able to spend any time alone with and had only courted a few months. I think they were just being more honest about the adjustment they had to make and how tough it was than maybe some of the other couples are. That doesn't mean they don't love eachother or that they were misserable the entire time.

The Duggars are Ken Ham creationists. They believe that dinosaurs existed and did so during human history. Still craycray but not dino-denial craycray.

Since the Dill kids aren’t reading much yet and need to have the exhibits explained by their parents anyway, I assume they are just passing over the information that contradicts their dogma and focusing on the Cool Dinosaurs.

The Dillard's may not be young earth creationist. You can be fundie and believe the earth is millions of years old.

Jill has another best hubby ever post up. This time Derick made her tea and took the boys with him to pick up groceries from Walmart so Jill could have some time to her self. I actually don't mind this post. Derick actually did something nice for Jill.

I'm just delving into her Youtube content and I've not been impressed yet. ?

I kind of feel like a bit of a Debbie Downer here (not saying anyone here is making me feel like this), but this just isn't okay and if she wants to be a professional writer she needs to clean her act up.

Have we talked about Jill's zucchini recipe that looks a bit like vomit piled on a plate?  

 

She's an inspiration to me! Every time, I want to take a picture of something I cooked, I think of her food photos and then don't do it. :) My cooking generally relies heavily on appetizing scents to convince people to eat it, rather than presentation. And I strongly suspect that it's the same for Jill.

Here’s my thought on the museum and DD. Yes, DD has expressed some awful beliefs, and for that he must always be held accountable. However, I do not think  DD is JB’s flavor of fundie. I do not think that DD is anti-education for anyone, anti-books or secular education. I do no think that DD wants double digits  number of children or a life with hard limits in terms of extracurricular activities for his family. Travel, school, adventurous eating and sports will likely be approved activities in his home. Yes, many of his beliefs are horrid, but I think JB is far more dangerous as he maintains a more shiny veneer. I imagine after the first couple of years, the Dillard boys will be in some sort of BM school. I can even see Jill attending JC.

Gay not gay, leave it alone.  Some people are safer in the closet, not recommended but it is what it is. 

I have Severally repented for any speculation I might have done in the past.

BTW I have finally completed the Prayer Closet.  You are welcome.

I work at a "dinosaur museum."  We do get some fundies in---sometimes they come up and challenge us on the information we have posted---about evolution and extinction.  Very rarely, though.  I do lead field trips when religious schools come, and again, for the most part, they go off as normal (kids will occasionally mention that dinosaurs lived with Adam & Eve, etc.) 

We've had a couple of ginormous Amish (or probably Mennonite) families come in.  Anecdotally, they usually read every single thing and spend a lot of time at the museum---and have never said anything to us about the displays.  I'm not really sure what the Amish stance is on evolution, anyway.  The last family I checked in had 9 kids--from about 20 down to a newborn.  They were incredibly well behaved.

I realise this delves into the “what is a fundie vs what is a conservative Christian”, but how does this work, exactly? I mean, I’m Christian and I believe the earth is millions of years old and dinosaurs existed before humans and evolution is not a satanic conspiracy... but I also believe the early chapters of Genesis are mythological in style and not meant to be interpreted as a literal account of history. I would think that approach to the bible would disqualify me from being fundie? Isn’t literal interpretation of every word of an infallible bible a “fundamental” of fundamentalism?

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.
