Pack the kids in the car and take them to see all of their favorite creationist heroes — a perfect unlearning opportunity. The Guardian reports:
A stretch of interstate in northern Kentucky may soon be the official capital for creationism fans across the globe. Online-only institution the Creation Science Hall of Fame hopes to establish a real-life creationism center located between the Creation Museum and planned creationism theme park Ark Encounter.
The hall of fame website was launched in February and honors “those who honored God’s word as literally written in Genesis.” Any scientist who the institution believes furthers the scientifically inaccurate idea that God created the world 6,000 years ago can be included.
There are several creationism institutions in the US, including another creation museum in Texas and a mobile museum that takes fossil exhibits to churches and schools. The hall of fame would solidify northern Kentucky as the center for creation-tourism. In a May 2012 Gallup poll 46% of Americans said they believe God created humans in the present form.
