Skip to comments.Atheists expelled from Creation "Museum"

...according to Myers and at least one of my other sources that attended, aside from joking to each other about the ridiculous nonsense in the museum, no one misbehaved. But that didnt seem to stop museum officials from harassing individuals and eventually kicking a few people out of the museum for imaginary infractions.
Essentially, it seems the museum feels that merely disagreeing with its science and mocking it to ones friends is grounds for having visitors removed from the property. This is absurd. Could you imagine if the American Museum of Natural History ejected visitors for being creationists? Or if the Museum of Modern Art ejected visitors for critiquing the art or mocking Jackson Pollacks work quietly with their friends? It would never happen. Thats because REAL museums are tools for education and dont try to control how its visitors think.

These guys were probably doing more than just mocking the science. They were probably creating a loud disturbance and ruining the experience for other museum guests.
If so, any and every museum would kick guests out under such circumstances.
Just a funny feeling.....
I'm sure. Atheists going to a museum for Creationism is like a Christian going to a museum for Voodoo. What's the point.... unless you have other motives?
I cannot imagine even the Smithsonian would tolerate an organized scene by 240 Creationists whose goal was to disrupt the visit of others by openly (loudly) mocking the evolution displays.
This was not a museum “visit”, it was an organized attempt to belittle the museum, religion, and visitors with other views.
Do these people think this type of behavior converts the thinking of others?
Is it a museum? Seems like a propaganda assemblage to me
This is much worse than having the scientific evidence against evolution prohibited in the classroom......./sarc
The word museum is in quotes in the title thread with good reason.
“It’s not enough to be an atheist. You also have to be a d*ck about it!”
Probably dem and or fem activists of the liberal and stupid is as stupid does leftists creating problems that dem lawyers can use to sue the godly American Christians.
It it their way. What they don't believe they destroy wantonly and are the cruelest and crudest of peoples in the violent earth.
[It all began several weeks ago when PZ Myers along with the Secular Student Alliance (SSA)]
Athiest is as atheist does.
Atheists make a determined choice to disbelieve in God. I've studied their "evidence." It's not evidence. It's mere guesswork.
That said, I guess I'll defer to Solomon: "The fool hath said in his heart, 'There is no God.' They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good." (Ps 14:1)
They're just not very good people and of necessity have chosen to reject God so as not to impede their sinful choices.
Why would we care what any such people think about God?
The truth is, they instinctively know God exists. Why else would they spend so much time trying to convince everyone He does not exist?
Somebody ping G-Cube!
Could you give a link to the proof of your probables. Are is it another Frog with wings comment.
The staff of Skeptic Magazine and The Skeptical Inquirer spend a lot of time trying to convince people that Bigfoot, UFOs, ghosts, and ESP don't exist. Do you consider this evidence that they instinctively know that such things do in fact exist?
Exactly. Have you ever seen a bunch of non-believers in Santa Claus getting together and going to the mall and crashing a Santa Claus visit area for little kids at Christmas?
There is something unique and special about Jesus Christ that makes those who hate Him erupt in bizarre rages and go to ridiculous lengths to try to disprove His existence.
