Cincinnati Zoo caves in to Darwinists
The Cincinnati Zoo and the Creation Museum launched a joint promotional deal last week to draw attention to their holiday attractions.. . . .
The zoo pulled out of the deal Monday after receiving dozens of angry calls and e-mails about the partnership, which offered reduced prices to anyone who bought tickets to the zoo’s Festival of Lights and the museum’s Christmas celebration, Bethlehem’s Blessing. . . . .
Zoo officials said the promotion was intended to be no different than any other reduced-cost package deal the zoo offers with other institutions in the area, such as the Cincinnati Reds.
The combo ticket with the Creation Museum was just a one-month holiday-season promotion. What was the big deal?
Apparently this whole protest against this combo ticket was orchestrated by just one blogger, "Sleazy" PZ Myers.
The hypocritical Darwinists pretend to be concerned about science, but they have hurt the Cincinnati Zoo's ability to get more visitors, revenue, and publicity for the purpose of helping the zoo display, study, and preserve wildlife.
I am sure that the zoo is very grateful for the Darwinists' "help" in fulfilling the zoo's educational mission.
With "friends" like these, does the Cincinnati Zoo need enemies?
It will be some time before we learn all of the repercussions.
Again, info on how to contact the zoo is here.
