Creationist Museum Tours

This video clip has been making the rounds, so apologies if you've seen it already. Still, I think it's important and highlights a need for sound science policy and science education - particularly critical thinking skills. (On the plus side, a major news outlet featuring a story like this is definitely a good move)

I don't think I've been quite so angry in a while.
They are knowingly misrepresenting what they see on tour. They deliberately ignore the information that is placed there for them to understand.

I'd have kicked them out of my museum.

Threw up in my mouth the first time I saw it. Thrown up in my mouth every time since.

Pretty ballsy of ABC to run that, though. Those Biblical Scientists have been known to throw economic weight around to silence TV networks from broadcasting attacks like that. So bravo to ABC for running that story.
