i recently read an article that said that Creationism and Intelligent Design were dead/dying.  i'm not so sure i agree with the premise, but even if it is, i'm fascinated by the Creation Museum's very existence.  if you're like me, you've watched videos on Youtube about it, and have probably seen where Atheists visit the CM.  it's made me wonder what it would be like to follow a Creationist around as they visit a 'real' museum like the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History.  has this been done before?  has a Creationist ever entered such a museum? 

 

so, what would be the best way to do this?  one way would be to infiltrate a Creationist group and suggest such a visit.  while this would be fun in theory, in practice, i'm not sure who could stand being around said group for long enough to properly influence them to considering such a field trip. 

 

how about a public challenge?  let's 'dare' them to do it!  i'm sure some Atheist group with enough clout could issue this public dare to a 'rival' Creationist group, right?  i'd love to see this video happen, so i'm open to suggestions.  who's with me?!

It would make a good Big Bang Theory episode.

Anne, thanks for the link.  I'd still like to see a video of it though :)

I was hoping that my xmas card this year would make creationists think....

Maybe it could be printed as a flyer with directions to the nearest natural history museum on the back!

I do believe they are dead and dying but it might take a good long while.  Creationists do visit those museums, but somehow no amount of evidence can sway (most of) them.
