Depressing that there are people this ignorant in Boise trying to spread their mind-numbing stupidity.

Re: “Religious Vision

I truly feel sorry for these people. They cannot let go of irrational beliefs no matter amount of reality is put before them. Notice how they're using the words "creationism and young-earth theories" to put their beliefs alongside scientific theories, and thus attempt to have them both treated as equal competitors because of the word theory. A theory in scientific usage is not the same as the lay use of the word theory. A scientific theory is testable and the closest thing to fact in science. No theories are proven, only disproved. The Theory of Gravity has long been tested and never disproven, even though science still does not understand how it works. The Theory of Evolution is exactly the same. The level prior to theory in science is hypothesis. Creationism at it's very least could be considered the hypothesis of creationism, but could never be tested, so it would be a fool's errand. As a side fact, laws, such as the Law of Gravity, are mathematical equations that fall under the umbrella of theories. The Law of Gravity is part of the overall Theory of Gravity.

If you look really closely, the drawings of humans playing with dinosaurs are done in crayon and signed "Sarah Palin" at the bottom.

Re: “Religious Vision

I hope this museum does indeed present some actual and factual knowledge concerning real science and history.

Re: “Religious Vision

This display has nothing to do with science, and everything to do with a particular religious fantasy.

Re: “Religious Vision

Why give free publicity to this farce? Have you bothered to look into the problems Ken Ham's creationist museum is having in Kentucky and what he has been forced to do in order to keep the doors open? Of course, malarkey does not pay. Not even in the Bible Belt.

So why do the media here act as if there were nothing better to do than give free publicity to this insult to education? Maybe instead you could interview local educators about their responses to the fabulous recent series, "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey," which aired on - of all things - Fox?

C'mon, BW. You can do better.

The Northwest Science Museum is to science what mimes are to recorded music.

Re: “Religious Vision

All the "museum" needs are animatronic dinosaurs and Idaho could have it's own verson of Ken Ham's Kentucky (buckle of the Bible Belt) Creation Museum, laughing stock of the intellectual world.

Re: “San Inazio for Beginners

The article reads "we've all visited the Basque Block." It doesn't say anything about Bardenay being Basque.
Although, I don't speak for Bardenay, I'd say they're "Basque-enthusiastic."

Re: “One Man's Treasure

The intent of A.R.P.A was never intended to be used to the extreme it is used today by Archaeologists, they are making their own laws to insure their jobs.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

I find envy to be the biggest difference between one who enjoys detecting and those who think it should be outlawed. Most of what I find is worthless to everyone but me, because I enjoyed the happy moment of finding it.

Miserable people with no hobbies to entertain themselves I find always turn their nose up at others who know how to live life and are happy.

Re: “One Man's Treasure

Metal detecting is a wholesome family pastime, and the idea that everything should be left in the ground is ridiculous. Who are we leaving it to? The highway crew, the shopping center developer, the farmer, the tornado, hurricane or flood? People who detect clean up the trash and share their finds via community displays. No one is "stealing" anything and to use that word is insulting to those of us who enjoy the hobby.
