"That's good since I didn't say it was a school."

Your post: "The school has a state charter and the foundation by law has it’s bylaws."

There’s been a lot of bad blood between the Smithsonian and the Discovery Institute for quite some time. Illustra Media, the production company that produces this film appears to be a shell company created by the Discovery Institute, so I’m no surprised that the Smithsonian isn’t happy about it.

That I did since there is a Science Center school on the grounds and operated as part of the Center just as there is a Center Foundation that was formed to raise funds.
The school has a charter and the foundation by-laws as
I said.

But where is this mandate that requires discrimination on the basis of the renter's beliefs and opinions? Basically when it comes to public facilities being rented out it's rent to all or rent to none.
I can rent a publicly funded library room or tax supported school auditorium when not in use if others, Hare Krishna's, Darwin doubters and believers, Prayer clubs, or whatever are allowed to and I don't have to meet an ideological test.
If I'm not allowed then no one is allowed.

What the relationship is between the Discovery Institute and Illustra Media really isn't relevant since many organizations may form other companies for a certain purpose. The Science Center has a foundation to raise money for it and probably to actually own the property.

And what relationship or ‘bad blood’ exists between the Smithsonian and the Discovery Institute is also irrelevant as the contract wasn't between the Discovery Institute and the Smithsonian.

They do indeed. Sometimes those "certain purposes" are honorable, and other times not so much.

Hopefully the Science Center will do the right thing and honor its contract but if not then the courts will have to sort it out.

And hopefully they will act in accordance with the law.

David Berlinski, Ph.D. Philosophy (Princeton University) and post-doc fellow in mathematics and molecular biology (Columbia University) speaks about flaws in Darwinism and peer pressure among scientists to conform to the “party line” in science.
