When Dinosaurs Walk with GodI'll admit, it'll be similar to the blog posts I made about my trip, but more cohesive and with more background information. We'll also probably head out to dinner together afterward, if that's more incentive for you to come!
A godless biologist's trip to the Creation Museum
Presentation by Jennifer McCreight, President of the Society of Non-Theists and Purdue senior majoring in Genetics and Evolution
Mon, Sept 21
6:30 - 8:00 pm
Free and open to public
This summer Jennifer visited the Creation Museum, a multi-million dollar enterprise by Answers in Genesis to spread the gospel of literal Biblical Creation. The museum teaches that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, evolution is a lie, and human reason and science are dangerous. Its child friendly environment complete with animatronic dinosaurs and a petting zoo is worrisome to those interested in science education in the US.
She'll be presenting a virtual tour of the museum with some commentary and rebuttals of the scientific inaccuracies seen within (did you know that a T-Rex was a vegetarian until the fall of man?). There will be time for a Q&A session at the end.

In case you're anywhere near Purdue, I just thought I'd let you know that I'm giving a talk on the Creation Museum on Monday.
