I guess it doesn’t take much for the Smithsonian Institution to compromise it’s principals. For a contribution of only $16,000, the Institution’s Museum of Natural History next month will be "co-sponsoring" the presentation of a propaganda film on "intelligent" design produced by that sink hole of ignorance the Discovery Institute.

My membership in the Smithsonian is worth far less than $16,000 but I’ve already let them know I’m gone if they go through with this farce. I would hope that anyone else who is interested in the advancement of knowledge rather than in the fostering of mysticism would also write the Institution and let them know (link is to their Inspector General’s online report form).
