Sneak Preview of the Upcoming Cy Cards.

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

Cy Postcard Front 01.jpgEarlier this month the Associated Press created a media frenzy over a one-eyed cat named Cy. Due to the limited information being rehashed over thousands of newspapers and web sites around the world, it left people wanting to know more about Cy’s story. Some have written us and asked, “What did the original owner Traci Allen think when she first discovered Cy?” “Why did the Lost World Museum want Cy?” “What is Cy’s significance? “How did she end up with one eye?” “Can I visit her?”

These questions along with her “new roll” as the museum’s spokes animal necessitated the production of the new informational Cy cards. The story is in three parts. Each of the three cards has a different photo of Cy when she was alive. These are the only three photos ever taken during Cy’s short life. The original photos were extracted from the former cat owner’s camera memory stick. This allowed the images used to be the absolute highest quality reproductions of Cy available. These cards are a full 6″x9″ and you can have all 3 in a set for $5. Due to the limited numbers we print you may want to pre-order yours before the lines form.

Cy Tees

cyclopskittenshirt-enlargedimage.gifWhen Cy first appeared in the news January of 2006 some quick thinking entrepreneurs brought a number of representations of Cy to market. I want to thank Chris Crosby for this cute design of Cy and the work they are doing over at Sore Thumbs.

“Mutations are never very helpful!”

3D_cyclops - Pinkoski550.jpgThe significance of Cy is becoming more apparent as time goes on. As you can see, some of the blog’s comments have allowed us a peek into the debate between Evolution and Creationism. You can probably tell from the heat it generates that people have some pretty strong ideas when it comes to the question of origins.

Update on Cy:
Well Cy is about to be placed in her permanent home. She has been resting comfortably in a vat of formalin these last two weeks waiting for the person in charge of her preservation to come back from vacation. Cy will under go several additional baths of alcohol mixtures before she is ready. We are working on something that will allow us to display Cy in the late summer of this year. We will announce where and when Cy will go on display for the first time publicly here on this site before it goes to the media.

I want to thank Jim Pinkoski for the Cartoon and Caption.

Eight Products and a Painting

Friday, April 21st, 2006

The April 2004 unveiling of The Invitation was a success. Elfred went back to San Diego and Christen and I went to our Web Designers to see how they were coming with the new web site.

DCP_2290.JPGOctober 10th 2004 Elfred Lee gave an outstanding interview on radio station WGTS. Dr. Lee shared his experiences of searching for Noahs ark and recounting his sketches of wagon wheels found 80ft. under water in the Red Sea to a Washington, D.C. audience. Host Jerry Fuller asked Elfred to explain his new painting The Invitation.

Cy Mania Continues

Sunday, April 9th, 2006

Kipling West Cy 6x6kitten_300 low res.jpgHello Friends,

Over the last four days the response to Cy has been overwhelming. I want to thank everyone who has written. We’ve received some pretty interesting e-mails. Some from those who understand and support what Cy is accomplishing. While others are evolutionist’s mocking or tearing down our attempts to put a name on their philosophy/science. However one e-mail from an evolutionist who was actually nice explained his views in an intelligent, calm and respectful manner. Thank you Nathan! Behind the scenes we are busy finishing up the story of Cy, which will appear on her three part series postcards.

Those of you just getting aquainted with Cy, let me take you back to January 9, 2006 when Cy hit the Internet. Amidst the media frenzy, several artists felt compelled to express their affection for Cy in various mediums. Our first featured artist is Kipling West who has provided us with this blogs art. Click on the photo atop for a closer look.

Our second artist, Carla Carpio,wrote this lovely ode to Cy.

Oh Cyclops Kitten
I didn’t know you
but I bet you woulda made a great pet
woulda scared everybody at the vet
you are the cutest thing I wish that I had met

Oh Cyclops kitten
you didn’t have a nose to smell
but it’s really just as well
what kind of creature are you?
it’s hard to tell

But I think you’re the sweetest cyclops I’ve ever seen
And those who think differently are just shallow and mean
and you wouldn’t want an owner like that
i’d be proud of you with two eyes
or even one at that.

Cyclops Kitten
it’s probably better that you’re gone
no big dogs to taunt you on the lawn
no hairballs to hack up when you yawn
just a peaceful place for a one-eyed beast
oh cyclops kitten, you can rest in peace.

 

What good is a One-Eyed Dino?

Saturday, April 8th, 2006

1eye_dino.jpgIf evolution was really true, we would have dug up fossils of all sorts of ancient animals who would have started out with only 1 eye, and then they would have later mutated themselves a 2nd eye! We would find fossils of 1-eyed T-rexes, 1-eyed giant beavers, 1-eyed giant kangaroos, etc. — but we don’t! Bilateral organs like eyes prove that evolution is a LIE — because if mutation and evolution were really true, then it only makes sense that any given life form would just mutate only 1 of any given organ like an eye at first, and then later it would mutate the 2nd one! The Cy Kitty is just a reminder that mutating any organ in any way is going to be harmful to the life of the animal, yet evolutionists rely upon literally millions of mutations to have formed all life — and it’s impossible!

Cy The One-Eyed Cat Joins the Lost World Museum

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

Cy Alive2 12-28-05.JPGHi Everyone,
Many of you are here because of all the media hype surrounding the Cyclops kitty. Well, yes, we did acquire it from the owner Traci Allen of Redmond, Oregon and YES it is real and not a Photoshop hoax. Now let me give you the reason for our interest in her and then show you how to receive more information on Cy.

Evolution states that millions of mutations over millions of years with the help of environmental pressures can lift a species from the ape like creature we call Lucy to us today. My questions are these. Do positive mutations exist? The mutations I have seen, like Cy, are either neutral or negative. Also can mutations given enough time and chance really produce greater intelligence, reason, speech and even spirituality to beings? Given the possibilities side by side. I say that it is easier to believe that we came from Adam and Eve and not Lucy and Steve. Either way it requires faith because we did not see Adam created from the earth and we did not see Lucy walking about to know for sure if she was a monkey, deformed person or something else. We did not then or now see evolution produce a gill to a lung or fin to an arm.
IMG_9794.JPGSo what is in store for Cy? Cy went through some surgery to remove a piece of skin so scientists can study why she ended up with one eye. We have her bathing in formalin – a preservative. Later this month her solution will be replaced with alcohol and then she will be ready to go on tour. When not on tour Cy will be on display at the Lost World Museum. As the Museum’s spokes animal, Cy will help people understand what evolution promotes and suggest Genesis is a better answer to the origins question.
Do you want to know more about Cy? We are chronicled Cy’s life, which appears in a set of three oversized postcards. The back of each postcard will tell one part of her fascinating story. The only three photos of Cy while alive, two of which have never been published, will grace the postcards front covers. See them now in our store.

The Unveiling of The Invitation

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

Elfred at Airport1.JPGIt was 2 days before the grand unveiling of a painting that had cost me thousands and I was finally meeting the man I had hired to paint it. Though we had talked by phone in 1986 and collaborated during the three years of hard work on the painting, I had not met him face to face until today. Elfred nonchalantly picked off the stainless merry-go-round a long black PVC tube that held the 4 x 8 ft. canvas. Looking more like a bazooka than a painting valued somewhere in the six figures, I was amazed he had gotten through airport security.

The Westvale SDA church in Syracuse, N.Y. had invited Elfred and and us for this very important weekend, which would culminate in the unveiling of The Invitation The audience hung on every word as Elfred recounted his rescue as a child from a prison camp where he first learned to draw. When he shared the slides of his expeditions up Mt. Ararat in search of the Ark and recounted the testimonies of the Ark eyewitnesses he had interviewed, the audience showed no interest in quitting though the time had long expired for the lecture. The excitement grew as the time neared to finally see Noahs Ark captured on canvas.

Now it was the evening of April 18, 2004. The moment had finally arrived. The night before I had hardly slept. I realized I was about to stick my neck out and in one sense never be able to go back to the unknown and rather uneventful life I had felt comfortable with. Was I ready for this? Did I really want this? Could I do it? The people were seated; my wife Christen and my mother-in-law Carolyn manned the unveiling cloth. Without anymore adieu I said, Ladies and Gentleman, boys and girls, may I introduce to you The Invitation. As the black cloth dropped to the floor, the audience let out a simultaneous gasp. Unexpectedly they rose and gave their approval a standing ovation. To tell you the truth I felt very uncomfortable. I appreciated the response but felt Elfred and mostly God should get the credit.

Elfred and John Painting unveiled.jpgWhen they took their seats, Elfred spoke. He began by describing the symbolism hidden in the painting and reason for certain design elements. He saved one symbol, the best, for last. Notice Noah’s shadow? It’s the shadow of a cross. Continuing he said, Noah was a carpenter, so was Christ, Noah made a way of salvation for the people, so did Christ. People milled about asking question after question. Their obvious pleasure was satisfying to watch. I had wondered if I was ready for this, but after watching everyone’s response that night the answer was clear – full steam ahead. I think I grew about a foot that weekend.
