The Museum Conflict: Creationism vs Secularism

Ken Ham finally wrote about the controversy over the Cincinnati Zoo having a one time joint promo in celebration of Christmas. This promo consisted of one ticket to view both X-mas displays. The zoo is located about 35 minutes away from the Creationist Museum.

Militant atheists got wind of this promotion. Ken Ham names PZ Meyers, but he’s not the only one who advocated the zoo drop the promo. It wasn’t the zoo celebrating Christmas that bothered the atheists, it was the fact that the zoo was unequally yoked together with the Creationist Museum.

In the one atheist wrote…

“Asking me to ‘tolerate’ this kind of worldview is akin to asking me to ‘tolerate’ illiteracy. Both are problems of education and intelligence. Creationist thought is … naïve, it is anti-intellectual, and it harkens back to pre-enlightenment thinking. I don’t have any tolerance for that.”

“Shame on the zoo” PZ Meyers said, as angry letters like the two previous examples came flooding in to the zoo’s PR office. As a result, the zoo caved in fairly quickly. The one time promo was one time with the Creationist Museum.

Militant atheists have a prejudice attitude towards creationists especially when comes to science and faith in God.

“This is not a war against Christmas” one man wrote to me in his blog. I agree it’s not a war with X-mas but rather a war with “creation science.”    You see, Christmas is highly ecumenical for many groups who are religious, Christian, and even the godless!

PZ Meyers who is part of the godless crowd is a classic example of a man at war with Christianity, but celebrates the customs of Christmas like having a X-mas tree and opening gifts on December 25 like it’s someone’s birthday.

However, Mr Meyers claims Christmas is no longer a religious holiday!  He’s not being honest, the truth of the matter is, the holiday is definitely religious, but full of materialism as well. The commercial aspect and also the  popularity are so overwhelming that it’s hard for PZ to ignore it, so he joins in on the celebration.

I noticed atheists do have a double standard in which they are misleading the public. The zoo is promoting a holiday which does advocate the supernatural rather than naturalism but strangely are not allow to join a one-time promo with a creationist museum in celebrating X-mas.

Some atheists claim, the zoo would have been the laughstock of the world.  If this is true, then they should be still laughing at the zoo because they are celebrating a religious holiday not based on naturalism!
