    What a terrible shame that such a place exists. A place where you can bring your children to have them brainwashed by the evils of religion.

    Infamous? Never heard of it.

    I`m saying this to the Evangelical Atheists who seem so omnipresent on the internet - stop being so judgmental, stop thinking your superior, stop thinking you`re the most logical and reasonable piece of work on the planet, and most importantly, LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE.

    People hate it when Christians get in your face, people hate it when Muslims get in your face, people hate it when you get in our face.

    How true, Patch. Especially considering that there`s hardly a kid alive on the continent who hasn`t been thru a science center of some sort, with the implicit understanding that such places teach you true things about the world. Then imagine an impressionable mind being exposed to this assinine but slickly presented pseudo-science center; s/he`d have no reason to suspect it was any different, and that`s an awful thought.

    So you`re ok with lies being propagated to the youth of the USA? Shouldn`t young people be told the truth?

    @Andrew155 - I feel that at times it`s necessary to get in people`s faces, especially the crazy Evangelical & Born Again f*cktards who make a "museum" like this and are trying to force schools to teach creation instead of evolution. They live their lives believing in lies and don`t seek to better themselves by learning the truth which they pass on from generation to generation further polluting the gene pool.

    HA! This is me and Marcus.
    We`re going to the Creation Museum in San Diego next month. It`s not so big as this one, but it`s still a hoot and a laugh to see. The way they explain away Neanderthals cracks me up! But as a model maker I enjoy the stuff they`ve created.

    lauriloo, atheism doesn`t necessarily equal truth. Also, there is a fallacy that atheism = science, which is lunacy. I can say with certainty that Creationism is, as a threat to the country, the biggest Phantom Menace of all time. It`s right up there above Obama`s Birth Certificate.

    whodat, the museum is fine. I`m sure we could make a good list of museums that say things that are incorrect. I`m sure there are even science museums that will be 90% incorrect 20 years from now. As for the evolution in schools, let`s teach that and not go ape$hit every time we see something random on the internet against evolution (which is daily).

    But the fact is that religion should be taught in schools, in a theology class. It`s not that difficult. People need to mellow out about random buildings in Kentucky.

    And just to say this preemptively, I would be considered an atheist by a literal definition, as I belong to no religion. But I would like to differentiate that from an Evangelical Atheist. These are the sorts of folks you`ll see on reddit frequently.

    Yes, in a theology class, not a science class. Also, this theology class should only be taught in a catholic or christian school, not public schools. Public schools are funded by tax dollars and if they were to teach theology it violates the whole "separation of church & state" part of the US Constitution.

    ...and if think there`s no threat posed by these idiots trying to spread creationism you`re sadly mistaken. Have you ever heard the saying, "you can`t teach an old dog new tricks"? If these kids grow up having that sh*t crammed down their throats they eventually believe it to be 100% accurate and no matter how many rock solid, proven facts you show them to prove they`re wrong they ignore it. Like the f*cking retards that say dinosaurs never existed and fake bones were put on Earth by Satan to trick people.

    Well, see, here`s the rub. It depends on what you mean by "getting in someone`s face", and "LEAVE PEOPLE ALONE".

    Personally, I`m an atheist. I`m even an anti-theist, that is to say, I personally believe that the world would be a better place without religion in it. Growing up in Belfast, Northern Ireland will do that to you, where people were murdering each other for being slightly the wrong flavour of Christian.

    Yet I`d hardly describe myself as a militant atheist, up to a point. If someone`s religion makes them happy and helps them in their lives, then I say go for it. It`s not for me personally (and I used to be a hardcore born-again Christian), and that`s fair enough. You do your thing, I`ll do mine. No harm, no foul.

    But here`s my beef: When you start f*cking around with the scientific education of children, see now I`ve got a f*cking problem with that. When you start indocrinating children with the idea that Creationism is true and the scientific fact of Evolution is a lie, I call that nothing short of Child Abuse. Kids at that age are malleable and will believe what they`re taught (I have a single daughter, 6 years old).

    And if kids are taught the monumental, abhorrent, demonstably evident bullsh*t lies that humans lived alongside dinosaurs, and there`s no such thing as evolution, and the world is 6,000 years old and all the rest of that sh*t, then you`re denying that child any chance he or she could have ever had, on becoming an adult, on becoming a useful scientist, engineer, doctor, or whatever. You`re crippling them. It`s literally stunting the growth of a potential great human being who might do some good in the world for the next generation, by filling their heads full of sh*t as an emerging adult. THAT is the bit I find abhorrent, and I`ll fight any asshat who tries to f*ck with children`s heads, every step of the way. THAT`s when people like us get militant, and will continue to do so.

    Ok some of the things i read hear are disturbing. I`ve known doctors, engineers and scientists (smart and good ones) that ascribe to some or more of the creationist ideas. Some were young earth, evolution rejectors... Others were the Big Bang old universe, but no evolution types. I`ve argued with them over it but they have got every right to raise their kids as they see fit. Teaching their kids this is not tantamount to child abuse! That is insane! Humans are resilient, they form world views that are wrong, and keep reshaping it over and over and certainly die believing wrong things. Everything you know today is a naive version of what will be known about it later. So folks that are adamant about changing children`s raising by their parent`s ideas to their OWN ideas need to stop and listen to themselves. Good grief!

    @Davymid,

    I`m guessing you stopped studying evolution after reading your high school text book. The "facts" you speak of, are mostly misleading, misinformed, or flat out false concepts presented as facts by text book editors who don`t know any better. I`ll just mention the embryo chart is falsified, but presented as fact in text books. When asked about it, I`ve heard scientists in the field say they know it`s faked, but it`s a good guide.

    So whose filling whose head with nonsense and holding them back in that situation? It`s a two way street, people lie, people can be dicks to push their own agenda. There`s so much more I could say on the topic, but I`ll leave it there as I just wanted to make a point and move on. Not interested in fighting about it.

    Said it elsewhere- will say it again. There is no debate- evolution by natural selection is the way it is. The only first world country that has a problem is the US. it is frightening and shocking that they have policy makers who are so poorly educated. it matters because selection is a driving biological principle which affects all life on earth. The existence of a place like this is a national disgrace- because it has the potential to affect the rest of the world. If people are ignorant because they live in a 3rd world country that ignorance is forgiveable.
    some Moslems do not accept it- and those who are well educated get called as much as anyone else- because most Moslems do not kill people. the fact that people can come on the internet and spout ignorant crap and think it makes them clever only get scary when that crap is so bloody dangerous. An inability to understand a simple life encompassing process is truly terrifying.

    Crakr and MelCervini, the reason that I don`t typically say anything about Muslims is because *they* aren`t making laws in my country that affect me, my family and my community. They aren`t attempting to indoctrinate our children, here, in the U.S. It`s as simple as that. If a Muslim person were to attempt to write laws based on the Koran into our Constitution or in any other way have said rules codified (at any level, local, state or federal), I`d be out there and in their faces and harassing them as well. I only give what I get. You keep your religion off of me, my family and public resources and I`ll not harass you or your religion. Matter of fact, I`ll fight to support your right to practice your religion. And as a veteran, I have!

    That you think we don`t attack Muslims out of some sort of fear is patently wrong on every level. Bullies aren`t scary--bigots who write laws that affect us all are scary.

    OK, since you called me out personally, let`s dance, dickhead. I have a Ph.D in Earth Science, a M.Sc in Earth History and a B.Sc (1st Class Honours) in Geology. That included many years of studying palaeontology, earth history, palaeoecology, etc. I`m a published author 11 times over in peer-reviewed international scientific journals, and all those publications were based, fundamentally, on the foundation of evidential scientific facts including the age of the earth and biological evolution.

    Hell, if I wanted to be a dick about it, it`s Dr. Davymid to you fella.

    I assure you Egal, I understand science a hell of a lot better than you apparently do. When you challenge my understanding of evolution as being at a high-school level, I think you may be projecting. Typically those who deny evolution, are those who don`t understand it. Like you.

    Pick your battles dude, this is one you`re not winning. At least you admitted you were sitting this one out immediately after posting, so I guess you`re off the hook.

    EgalM, you may want to have a look here for a ten minute primer on evolution and why what you`ve been told on YouTube and at other quack peddler`s media outlets is wrong. It`s a quick, concise, factual article from National Geographic and I doubt you`ll find a single thing about it that can be legitimately challenged. At all. I send you to it not because it`s comprehensive, but because it`s clear, easy to read in ten to fifteen minutes, and discusses the concepts that most people get wrong about Evolution. This information should a minimum prior to even discussing the topic.

    Angels dancing on the head of a pin!
    As the atheist son of an atheist mother, (who had christianity beaten into her as a child), I look upon all of the `worship` religions as fallacious codswallop.
    However, as a human being, I consider that every other human being has the right to believe exactly what they want, but not to impose that belief on any other human being.
    If the rest of the world were to share this opinion, religion would die out eventually, although I`m not sure about the consequences.
    All I can do is watch my fellow humans and despair.

    To be fair to EgalM, he does have a little bit of a point (tho I`m not sure whether it was the point he was trying to make). A lot of what`s taught as evolution in schools (even those schools which rightly deplore creationist BS) is fundamentally wrong, or at least significantly outdated.

    Now, this isn`t to say that there`s anything at all wrong with the theory itself, but given the poor standard of education on the subject, it`s really no surprise that most people have a very poor understanding of the theory ... and this includes the majority of people who accept evolution too.

    It`s one thing for churches to have a theater or even a religion-themed amusement park ("Don`t miss the Noah`s Ark ride!") but to wrap their dogma in a cloak of pseudo-science and sell it as a "museum" is a slap-in-the-face to real museums everywhere. That deserves to be hated on.
