Re: [atheists-518] FYI - Press Release re. Creation Museum Positive Protest

From: Aaron B.
Sent on: Monday, September 19, 2011 10:53 PM

Curious as to what the point is to protesting such a silly place as the Creation and Earth History Museum is? This is a religiously motivated pseudo-science institution that is for the most part not taken seriously by anyone other than reactionary Christians, unless I am mistaken. Does protesting this place give them more attention than they deserve? Aren't they better left ignored? I fear that any publicity will help to draw more people to this wacky place and do nothing but bolster their income. The axiom "no press is bad press" comes to mind. Please explain the reason for this protest.

Committed Atheist,
Aaron Burns

Hello everyone, Just so you know what is going on, I'm sending you the press release that was created by John Vigglione of the San Diego New Atheists and Agnostics. He is planning a positive, pro-science protest at the Creation and Earth History Museum in Santee this coming Saturday. He is going to quite a bit of effort to set up an instructional exhibit. We are going to create some signs, and will have some blanks available at the event in case you want to make your own. John and I have sent this press release to newspapers and TV News stations. We might get some media coverage, so it is important that we are all aware of the intention of this event (POSITIVE and PRO-SCIENCE).  Bring your publicity if you want to hand something out to the curious.  We have announced to the press that the protest is at 1:00 pm. John and I will be there before noon, but we will be in place at 1:00 pm in case there is any interest from the media.
I encourage everyone to enjoy the museum that day, which is opening some new exhibits. I also encourage you join in the protest to the extent  you are comfortable.
Hope to see you this Saturday at the "museum"! Debbie Allen
