Creationist Mother “Debunks” Evolution Exhibit at Chicago’s Field Museum; Here’s How You Should Respond

Earlier this month, self-described “homeschooling, Tea Partying, conservative mother” Megan Fox (not that one) visited Chicago’s Field Museum of Natural History. Then, with her video camera on, she “audited” the “Evolving Planet” exhibit which documents “4 billion years of life on Earth.”

Day said her only wish was for her mother to be buried “in the church that she loved and worshiped all of her life, even as a little girl.” Day explained her mother was a church member for 50 years but had been sick for nearly a decade, and in a coma for the last 24 months.
