BBC Radio has a virtual comedy museum, The Museum of Curiosity. This will be a real, physical, Comedy Museum.
I wonder which unfortunate state's taxpayers will have to help fund it?

Personally I suspect that Ham's grandiose schemes have probably hoovered up all the money from serious creationist benifactors i.e. the ones who can drop $10,000's rather than $10's into such projects.

Last time I checked (a few years ago) the ICR's income had been stagnant or declining for a good few years. Since then it has stopped being a "university" and can no long issue PhDs. As far as I am aware it now consists of, perhaps, a dozen "employees" or "researchers" and a publishing arm.

It's difficult to get precise stats on the decline in religious fundamentalism in the USA but the evidence I've seen suggests it is shrinking fast. Outfits like the SBC are seeing very few young people joining its movement - perhaps one per church per year on average.

Other fundamentalist outfits such as Focus on the Family have seen big lay-offs of staff in recent years.

I think the Fundamentalists have suffered from the fact that their carefully homeschooled and appropriate college educated kids have become Christians!
