Even though I think that it's terrible to teach children religious mythology instead of factual information I can't help roaring with laughter every time I see those pictures of humans running around with dinosaurs. It's the right of every parent to teach their kids whatever they want but...LOL. That one is so ridiculous that I can't help laughing. My other favorite is how the Grand Canyon was created by Noah's flood. They're as funny as they are scary.

I too would love to visit. I'll take God's truth any day over the evolutionist viewpoint. No wonder there is no value of human life anymore.

I'll take actual truth any day over the mythology of one one group. No wonder there is no value on intelligence anymore.

I'm just curious as to why the fossilized human footprint that was found next to dinosaur footprints in Texas was destroyed? If it was fake, why was it destroyed?

I had a class in college entitled "Comparative Economic Systems". This was an objectively oriented class that taught all of us ignorant kids how the world worked.
I still remember this class.
What would be wrong with presenting in a classroom setting the same approach to the THEORY of How we got here. After all everything that is passed off as actual is also just a theory. We can do wonders so far as carbon dating stuff and analyzing old bones, but all the rest of it is just a theory.
Kids deserve to be informed of everything that is out there.
If someone is afraid to give them all that is out there, I wonder what they are afraid of ??????

I can't wait for the astrology museum, the phrenology museum, the flat-earth museum, and the moon-is-made-of-cheese museum. Just goes to show that PT Barnum was right . . .

I'm just waiting for a creationist educated enough to know what a scientific theory is, because they always seem to think it is the same as a theory in the vernacular sense.

No need to need to teach astrology, phreonology, alchemy or creationism in science class because none of them are based on science. If you want your kid to be an idiot, you will just have to homeschool him.

Why can't you have a decent discussion on here without insulting people of faith? I thought this was supposed to be such a tolerant bunch, but Santa Cruz has become the worst of the worst in terms of that. Shame on you, eric d, and others of your ilk.

Nice, Turner. Way to ignore the statistics on scholastic achievement by homeschooled kids in order to make a mean-spirited point. What I noticed from the article is how much the scientists are the ones who "feared" this museum and its impact. Funny that critical thinkers should fear something they so easily dismiss as fantasy.

Hi Turner,

What are you so afraid of ?

I am not afraid of my kids being taught anything as long as they have a balanced presentation of both sides. sure sounds like you are very insecure about your side.

If you bring into this argument, "homeschooling" You are in deep trouble. There are so many reasons that people home school and the religious aspect is far down that list. Wake up sir !

The "location" is where the ISP is domeciled. I'm not in Santa Cruz and I'm not in Watsonville. My guess is that they are working from their office computers and the company ISP is in Texas.

It might be interesting in an anthropology course comparing various mythological beliefs. There are many "theories" involving sun gods, moon gods, Olympian gods, etc.

But it would be inappropriate in a science class to teach any theories that are not in some way supported by scientific research.

Frankly, you should mind your own business - everyone here already has a mother.

Why should any respect be offered to people like those here, who embrace ignorance and attempt to spread known lies? People who have "faith" that blinds them to everything that doesn't feed "beliefs" and self-martyrdom?
This sort of "faith" is unworthy of respect in any way - it'd be like demanding respect for hate groups on the basis that they too were "sincere".
If people have religious beliefs and wish to discuss those, you would still have a very slender point, but your comment here is utter manure.

With no respect for your concern trolling whatsoever,

What. An. Idiot.

How od is the Earth? C'mon! Tell us you weren't come from no monkey!

Creationists and their defenders are capable of any lie and any tactic: they have no morals, no conscience, and no reason.
I've followed the debate for over twenty years, believing that many of these people were simply poorly informed (and many were), but anyone now who has touched the "debate" since Dover, Pennsylvania, is simply a know-nothing Xian goon.
