Know Your Enemy

"You could visit Noah's Ark and not read the posters. But they're clustered by the picnic tables in the indoor play park – somewhere all the children are almost guaranteed to visit. But then, that's surely the real purpose of the place: you might think you're going there for a fun afternoon out, but you're really acquiescing in someone's attempt at a bit of light indoctrination."

Alice Roberts finds a trip to a creationist zoo in Bristol an infuriating rather than an enlightening experience. I'd thought this sort of nonsense was the exclusive preserve of Americans, but it seems it's spreading. Credit to Roberts for trying to nip it in the bud.
