The Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History is dedicated to science and to elucidating the remarkable evolutionary history of life on Earth. The museum actively engages in public programs, undergraduate and graduate education, outreach education, and other efforts to increase the scientific literacy of visitors to the museum and the people of Oklahoma.
The museum does not support antiscientific views masquerading as science, such as those espoused by the Discovery Institute, although the museum respects the religious beliefs of all people. Moreover, the museum is obligated to rent its public space to any organization that is engaged in lawful activities, free speech, and open discourse.
We invite everyone interested in an accurate description of how life developed over the last four billion years to visit our exhibits, which illustrate through real specimens and science, the fact of evolution as first described by Charles Darwin and that has been continually supported by all branches of science ever since that time. The museum also recommends that people interested in evolutionary science review the more than 1,000 publications by our curators and professional staff that are based in evolutionary biology. The museum does not discriminate against recognized campus organizations based on their religious beliefs, political philosophy, scientific literacy, or any other factors. The museum’s many galleries of evolution will be open before and after the showing of the Intelligent Design film so that the public can learn that there is no scientific controversy involved in evolutionary science’s explanation of the development and history of the Earth’s biodiversity.
EXPELLED! EXPEEEEEEEELLED! Theyre like TOTALLY EXPELLING the CREATIONISTS with this vulgar, offensive statement!
