Intellectual Molestation

Evolutionary biologist Gene Kritsky took a look at Ken Ham's Creation Museum the other day. "It's bait-and-switch," he tells Cincinnati's City Beat. "Get them in with dinosaurs, then let the message morph. Adam sins, Noah's ark arrives."

"The dinosaurs?" Kritsky says, "they're eye candy for kids. A lot of kids get into science because of dinosaurs. I did. For me it was Frito Corn Chips. Seven years old and little dinosaurs were in Frito's. I asked my mom what was that, and she said, 'A dinosaur.' So they're using dinosaurs as an eye candy... it's almost like intellectual molestation."
