The Creation Museum had topped the list thanks to constant voting from Ken Ham‘s readers. (And golf claps to them for out-Pharyngulating us.)
Now, the article based off the poll is out… and the Creation Museum didn’t make the cut 🙂
Our nominations process was fierce and brought out the full range of emotions in our audience — passion, joy, sadness, anger. You spoke up to nominate 562 attractions and voted over 138,000 times. So how did we arrive at the final list? As we explained in the rules, we used your votes — combined with factors such as geographic and thematic diversity-to guide our selection-making process. And we automatically eliminated places that had made our story last year.
I guess misrepresenting science and brainwashing children was also a dealbreaker for them, considering the Creation Museum didn’t make last year’s list, either.
Way to keep the list focused on quality locations, Budget Travel!
