Smithsonian human origins exhibit elicits awe, protests

Smithsonian human origins exhibit elicits awe, protests
By Dan Vergano, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — "What could prompt a climate protest at a paleontology exhibit?
The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History saw this scenario, when Greenpeace protesters arrived Wednesday for the museum's opening of a state-of-the-art $20.7 million "Hall of Human Origins," exhibit.

Who would have thought Greenpeace would be there protesting an exhibit on the origins of humans? Creationists, yes. But then again those climate change wackos will protest anything. Seems as far as they're concerned there's never been any climate change in the 4 billion year history of the planet until now.

The other thing that still gets me is this, from the article...

"about 39% of U.S. adults overtly reject evolution, according to a 2006 study in the journal Science."

That's akin to saying 39% of U.S. adults thinking the world is flat. If they want to believe that it is their prerogative. But they should keep it to themselves and stay out of the way of rational, intellectual and truly theological thinkers. And stay away from the rest of the population who actually have some common sense.
