Chalk one up for science!
The Cincinnati Zoo has canceled a joint ticket promotion with the nearby Creation Museum in Kentucky, which presents the Bible’s version of natural history.
Some scientists and bloggers had complained that the zoo should not work with a religious museum that rejects the theory of evolution. The promotion, granting 2-for-1 admission to the zoo’s holiday light show and the Creation Museum’s live nativity performance, was on the zoo’s website Sunday, but was gone by Monday afternoon.
Creation Museum president Ken Ham said, “We certainly understand why they’ve had to do this, but again it comes down to intolerant people who are intolerant of the Christian position in this nation – and unfortunately we see that sort of intolerance growing.”
Sorry, Ken. This is not an intolerant response. Rather, this is an appropriate response on the part of the zoo to a blatantly anti-scientific position.
How anthropocentric of some in the human race to have ever beleived that the entire universe only came into existence when our species first became aware.
