The Genesis of a Debate
Creationist Students Take Field Trip to Hotbed of Evolution: The Smithsonian

http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/03/10/AR2009031003690.html

From the article, '"There's nothing balanced here. It's completely, 100 percent evolution-based," said DeWitt, a professor of biology.'

What does this Liberty University professor expect, it's a museum of NATURAL HISTORY, not a museum of Fundamentalist Christian Religious Beliefs. I bet there's also nothing on any other religion's creation myths. I'll also bet he does not present a "balanced" view of those other creation myths in his Creation classes.

From the article:

Quote
"Why should we be afraid to test our worldview against reality?" asked Bill Jack, a Christian leadership instructor who leads groups across the country for a company called Biblically Correct Tours.

Emphasis mine - and I wonder if he wishes he'd phrased that differently.
