RE: Is it April 1st? this has to be a joke.
Sounds like a decision has been reached. I agree with not going. Taking your inlaws up on a trip that they pay for so you can ridicule their beliefs is beyond rude. It's also extremely disrespectful. I have no problem with people going to this sham "museum" and making fun of it but do it on your own dime. Don't take advantage of someone else's good intentions.

I'm sure Bow's inlaws believe they are making a sincere offer about something they believe in. So they are wrong. People are wrong about lots of stuff. That doesn't create license to take advantage of their generosity.

The best option is to politely decline and try to do something everyone can agree on as an activity.

Santa serves a purpose by showing children that it's OK to have fun with fantasy as long as there's 'safety word'. And there's a difference between harmful deceit / propaganda and fictional fantasy... the difference between abuse and BDSM.

So I was wondering what it would take for the creation museum to be re-categorised as fantasy. What would be the 'safety word'?

May I present ... Disney's Creation Museum. Laughat

Would it be enough just to start the rumour that Disney was looking to buy the place?

Consider

That's diabolical! I love it! But how could we keep Snopes from debunking it?

RE: Is it April 1st? this has to be a joke.
It just occurred to me -- it might be a lot of fun to get a dozen or so people from here on the board -- to make a get-together at the "Creation Museum" --

and all get completely wrecked ( on whatever your favorite substance of abuse may be) ---

and take the tour........


......

We'd probably make the news....

Edit to add -- Factor bail money into the cost of the trip....

It wouldn't take much to make it a Disney amusement park. Disney already has the tricera top ride..... Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

At least dress up for the occasion if you're going to go Triceratops riding.

I'd suggest either Cowboy, or Jesus if you want to go for extra blasphemy.

It's a multi-million dollar money pit, that even if completed would result in a un-seaworthy vessel that obviously cannot hold "2 of each kind" aboard
(despite modern tools, materials, and building techniques), so as far as I'm concerned it's already a failure. All that's left is to see how much of other people's money Ken burns in the process.
