Don’t think, just listen and believe

Fun at The "Creation Museum"
Media Czech at BlueGrassRoots blog went to the creation museum and gives a full report complete with pictures you can click on for a better view and snarky commentary.

The museum's theme? “Don’t think, just listen and believe”
That seems to be the theme of christian fundamentalists. The refusal to use their "god given" powers of thinking and reasoning.

Islamic fundies have a problem with Darwin. In Turkey, three out of four residents don't believe in evolution and there's a new book out, "Atlas of Creation." The reviewer says that it resembles the American creationist version and that may be because American fundies influenced Turks in the 80's. however...
"The political message is different, with evolution blamed for communism, Nazism and -- under a photograph of the Twin Towers in flames -- September 11."

Speaking of creationists, I am not sure how these questions were posed, but this survey/poll is quite frightening. I love how this story is all over the foreign press, goddess help us.
God or evolution? That is the question
Asked whether human life is a result of God's creation or evolution over millions of years, a majority of Americans said both are probable explanations.

Overall, more Americans expressed a strong belief in creationism, or the theory that God created humans in their present form at a single period in time within the last 10 000 years.

A full 66 percent said they believed in creationism, with 39 percent of those polled saying it was definitely true and 27 percent believing it was probably true.

But 53 percent said they believed in evolution, the scientific theory that humans developed over millions of years from less advanced forms of life. Eighteen percent said evolution was definitely true, while 35 percent said it was probably true.
