A minute silence please

16:00 GMT marks the opening of the Creation Museum. It is a sad day indeed. I propose a minute silence, so that we may all remember the young minds that are withered and imprisoned within the lies that it represents.

As to my own small protest, I will be taking my children to the Discovery Museum today. A place devoted to learning, history and science.

This is Dominic enjoying his last visit.

When I was in high school I forced myself to read a book on creationism - it was called "From God to You by Way of the Zoo" - and I mean I really had to use force. It was so ridiculous, circular arguments, nonsensical proofs, not to mention the poor writing. Really an embarrassment.

Wonder if a pseudo-museum like this can survive?

Hi Indie,

It strikes me that this bleating and posturing is of a dying movement. In desperation, the remaining few make as much noise as they can.

Like a cornered rat however, they are quite dangerous, and liable to bite.

Perhaps in the long run it will last, though only as an oddity. That said, where there's muck there's brass.
