An exhibit in the new Giants’ Causeway Visitors’ Centre acknowledges the creationist view of how the world-famous stones were formed.
The National Trust worked alongside the Caleb Foundation, which represents mainstream evangelical Christians in Northern Ireland, during the development of the centre.
“We have worked closely with the National Trust over many months with a view to ensuring that the new Causeway Visitor Centre includes an acknowledgement both of the legitimacy of the creationist position on the origins of the unique Causeway stones and of the ongoing debate around this,” Mr Thompson said.
I think it’s appropriate to investigate what has been presented rather than going off half-cocked without viewing the evidence. Because the latter is what a Creationist would do.
And, if it is found to be promoting mythology over science, then we can begin the laborious task of making sure that the National Trust and DCMS are informed that opinion does not trump science. Ever.
