Watch these incredibly agile animals seemingly defy gravity and reason. I remember seeing a fuzzy still pic from this video in the Guinness Books of World Records in the late 1970’s. Even after seeing it with my own two eyes I’m still having difficulty believing an animal can do what looks to be the impossible.

The 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. You may want to sign up to receive via e-mail an alert when a new blog is published. This way you won’t miss a thing including the forthcoming announcement of Cy’s premier.
I want to thank Jim Pinkoski for the Cartoon and Caption.

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 as mentioned in Blog #15.
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.
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.
If 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!

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.
So 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 chronicling Cy’s life, which will appear 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. The postcards will be ready to ship in 30 days, and instead of waiting in line we are taking pre-orders. Be the first to own this set of three 5″x8″ postcards of Cy or purchase sets for your family and friends. The set retails for $5 plus $2 shipping. You can use credit card, paypal or send a check or money; just call 1-866-593-3010. All orders will ship May 15th 2006.
