Creationism Museum To Open; Generates Opposing Petition Campaign

A $27 million museum promoting creationism is set to open in Petersburg, Kentucky on May 28. The Campaign To Defend the Constitution is beginning a petition campaign on its website to oppose the Answers in Genesis Creation Museum. Def Con's petition argues that the museum attacks children’s basic understanding of fundamental scientific principles. Wednesday's Cincinnati Enquirer reports that museum defenders say that their critics should see the museum before they speak out against it.
