Secular Student Alliance at the Creation Museum Today

Many folks with the Secular Student Alliance group (283?) are visiting the Creation Museum today and are using Twitter to inform those of us who can’t make it today. If you’ve got a Twitter account, you can follow their tweets using the hashtag “#CreoZerg”. I’ll be following it today and am really looking forward to reading all the writeups tomorrow.

One person posted an Urban Dictionary link to the origin of the “Zerg” part of the hashtag.

Here’s the scoop [sic]:

Originates from Blizzard’s game Starcraft where zerg were one of 3 playable races, aliens like appearance, zerg were characterized by using large numbers of weak units to swarm the enemy, also another characteristic of zerg were that everything was organic, ie, zerg didn’t used machines or any artifacts, they would mutate their own buildings from special kind of larvae and advanced units were created by mutating basic ones. Units were cheap to make and it was possible to make extreme numbers in short period of time.

Nowadays term zerg is used in mmo games to describe force consisted of large group of lower level players (often with only basic equipment) who use numbers rather then strategy to defeat the enemy, therefore requiring no skill. This tactics is commonly known as “zerging.”

Too funny.
