Truth in Advertising
January 19, 2008
So if a museum that promotes creationism — which holds, among other things, that the world is only about 6,000 years old — decides to auction off a mastodon skull in order to raise cash, and the mastodon skull is roughly 40,000 years old, then isn’t the museum committing fraud? Their own doctrine would have to lead them to conclude that the skull is a forgery, wouldn’t it? By “fraud,” I mean financial fraud. Intellectual and scientific fraud is already the stock in trade of any creationist museum.
