A Cincinnati news weekly, the City Beat, has weighed in on the Creation “Museum”. They don’t seem to like it.
Here are some of the good quotes from the article.
Gene Kritsky, biologist:
it’s almost like intellectual molestation.
Not only is it bad science, it is filled with bad religion, and it’s also bad sociology and bad history, too.
Lawrence Krauss, physicist:
This is an institution designed to mis-educate children.
This is nothing but an institutionalized lie and a scientific fraud.
Edwin Kagin, lawyer:
What they are doing is no less an attack on the very way that science and enlightened thought works to produce the modern world. They want to substitute mythology for knowledge. Ignorance is a form of terrorism.
The local paper, The Cincinnati Post:
Frankly, we wish the Genesis museum had been built somewhere else. We wish the 250,000 men, women and especially children expected to visit this year were getting a view of science that comports with what science really knows about the world. Why? Because Greater Cincinnati is trying so hard to market itself, nationally and internationally as a hospitable home for a knowledge economy.
At least, I get the impression it’s not a favorable review. Maybe I need to read between the lines a little more carefully.
