This seems too bizarre to be possibly true, but sadly I suspect it might be. According to this article, the +National Trust are actively supporting creationists in Northern Ireland to the extent of allowing creationist stories to form part of the Giant's Causeway visitor centre. It's a World Heritage Site so what kind of message is this sending to the rest of the world?

Please, +National Trust tell me you aren't doing that. I've been a long time member but if this is true I really shall be considering carefully whether to bother renewing.

The National Trust press release is here: http://ntpressoffice.wordpress.com/2012/07/05/giants-causeway-visitor-centre-interpretation/ "The Debate continues today

Like many natural phenomena around the world, the Giant’s Causeway has raised questions and prompted debate about how it was formed.

This debate has ebbed and flowed since the discovery of the Causeway to science and, historically, the Causeway became part of a global debate about how the earth’s rocks were formed.

This debate continues today for some people, who have an understanding of the formation of the earth which is different from that of current mainstream science.

Young Earth Creationists believe that the earth was created some 6000 years ago.  This is based on a specific interpretation of the Bible and in particular the account of creation in the book of Genesis.

Some people around the world, and specifically here in Northern Ireland, share this perspective. 

Young Earth Creationists continue to debate questions about the age of the earth. As we have seen from the past, and understand today, perhaps the Giant’s Causeway will continue to prompt awe and wonder, and arouse debate and challenging questions for as long as visitors come to see it."

What utter total complete rubbish. +National Trust you should be ashamed of yourselves.
