RB,

And last year we had a number of Catholic theology students. Although they didn't have to take the course they thought it was in their interest to as "we're going to be asked about this" etc. Anyway, they had a very dim view of the interpretation of the Bible provided in the museum! :-)

Ah, well; they would, wouldn't they? It would be really interesting to take a group of fundamentalist Muslims through that exhibit; they'd probably be like the local Yemeni jewelry merchant I frequent, who upon finding out I was a geologist and student of the Earth, asked me for confirmation that the Qur'an had it right in saying that the Earth was comprised of seven layers.

I told him it depended upon the scale at which one looked at the question.
