A Sad Day for common sense, nevermind the truth.

New museum says dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark – Yahoo! News

So the Creationists finally got a museum open, and not just that nutty one. I view this with very mixed feelings. On one hand the more publicity Creationists get, the less likely people are to give their beliefs credence. Despite my general cynical surface thoughts that people are generally stupid, deep down I believe that people are on the whole sensible and decent. Underneath that veneer of stupidity and shallowness, people are pretty good. However, the fact that the American public does treat this as a real museum, and not a Disney “Pirates of the Caribbean” type attraction does make me sad, and generally pessimistic about our future. Just how confusing is this to children who’s intelligence has not yet developed to the extent that they can differentiate between different views.
