Corporate Courage

The exhibition celebrating the life of Charles Darwin at the American Museum of Natural History in New York "has failed to find a corporate sponsor in the United States because American companies are anxious not to take sides in the heated debate between scientists and fundamentalist Christians over the theory of evolution," according to an article in the Sydney Morning Herald.

The entire $3 million cost of Darwin is instead being borne by wealthy individuals and private donations.

"The failure of American companies to back the exhibition reflects the growing influence of fundamentalist Christians, who are among President George Bush's most vocal supporters, in all walks of life in the US."
