Why are so many groups deciding to protest the opening of the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky? Many of them are the same people who pride themselves in being "open minded" and "tolerant of other's beliefs". Yet, for some reason, they find it necessary to mock a museum (which was totally funded by private money) that is just trying to present their answers to many age old questions.
What's also interesting about it is that these groups think they have all the answers. Well, if they do, why are they even bothering to take the time to discuss a museum they think is a lie, a fraud and just plan silly? It's equivalent to me trying to debate with my three year old. Why bother using up all that time and energy debating a museum dedicated to an "ancient myth", as one fellow wrote. I have my opinion-- "Me thinks thou doth protest too much!"
Lawrence M. Krauss: An interesting cultural experiment is taking place in Petersburg Kentucky, near the Ohio border. The experiment will shed light on the following question: How much money and glitz does it take to institutionalize a scientific lie?
Great media fanfare is already beginning to surround the official opening later this month of the $27 Million Creation Museum, close to the Cincinnati airport. Designed to oddly resemble natural history museums throughout the world, this will be a supernatural history museum, denying most, if not all, of natural history on this planet as centuries of careful study and experimentation have revealed it.
