Seriously though, I think it is lame to go protest their opening. It will only give them the legitimacy that sort of response always confers.
I will never go to the place. It is a place that is claiming to be an actual museum that informs people about something, but that certain something is an incorrect notion. Science and actual facts have essentially proven the whole theory of creationism flat out wrong! Evolution has without a doubt been proven fact, but how the world formed is still being debated. However, on one side of the argument you have some information to back up the argument...on the other side of the argument it is all personal belief. I'm sorry, but I don't go for that kind of stuff...I desire truth over everything else!
"Facts" could always be proven wrong
^ Come on now, this isn't "The DaVinci Code". The best thing you can do to refute a theory is to understand and educate yourself of the opposed end. That's why I think you should go.This is a museum, not a church. Their argument is in a "Scientific" form. Why not check it out and then question it.
In terms of this particular issue the institution of the church has deliberately tried to hide the truth over many years.For example they did not want people to know about the heliocentric (sun-centered) model. This knowledge directly affected what the institution was teaching its followers and the foundation of the church itself. All I know is that the very foundations of the church are shaky at best. You can agree or disagree, but I HAVE seen both sides and this is where I currently stand on the issue.
Also, Catholocism recognizes that what the Bible teaches is moral or spiritual truths
The funny thing is I believe in God, but that museum is perputating a bunch of silly stuff that falls along the lines of "the earth is flat because the horizon is straight" bs from 600 years ago.
