Nope. Not a PhD candidate. Just a measly Bachelor's Degree. I'm not even a scientist. And I may not know much. But I know that attempting to explain science with religion is just silly. And I've known enough fundie Christians in my life to know that arguing with them is futile.

I am a person of great faith. I have a very strong faith in God. But I also have the ability to think critically. Thankfully, science and religion don't contradict each other in my mind. I can believe in God without believing that Fred Flinstone and Dino existed at the same time. And I can believe in God without believing that He created the earth in seven days, a mere 6,000 years ago. I have no problem reconciling my belief in an Almighty God with evolution. And thankfully, I can believe in God while at the same time understanding that the Bible was never meant to be a science textbook.

I never said they did. After all, science can only show us what God created. People who think Science is God (or proves that God doesn't exist) are not comprehending the bigger picture.

If you have been there, what were your impressions and experiences? Did it solidify your faith? Do you feel more informed about life's origins?
Were you glad you went and would you recommend others to visit?
I heard they were opening The Earth Is Flat Museum next.

*sigh. No. No it can't. Science cannot show that God created anything. That is a faith based belief. Not a fact. It's not testable. It is not based on observation. It is not science.

It may very well be true that God created the universe. I certainly believe in a divine intervention. But it doesn't even matter if it's true. It might be 100% true that aliens inhabit a nearby planet. But until we have real, observable, tested, reproducible data, it's not science.

Faith and Science are two totally different things. They ask completely different questions. Science might ask "What is the definition of life...What chemical reactions are necessary for an organism to live on this planet?". Religion might ask "What is the purpose of life?...Why are we here?".

Neither discipline is any less valuable. But to try to combine them is silly.

I'd love to see the Easter Bunny, Jesus, Tooth Fairy &, um, maybe the Great Pumpkin (since its Halloween & all) in an all out battle royal cage match, all unleashing their own "super powers" on each other. I'd pay good money to see that.

You do realize that you're making fools of yourselves, right? Hitler would be proud
