We had a good day out at the Life Science Centre in Newcastle. I can reccomend the bacon bap (don't bother with the sausages) and the cream of white onion soup was surprisingly good.

The Life centre was much less packed than the Science Museum in London (though not free) and on the top floor there was some soft play type stuff the kids could go and fight with.

The body exhibit showed that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. And the planatarium suggested that the heavens declare the glory of God.

Mystery was mentioned and at one point and the commentery said that there was something we do not know yet.

However, if the history of science has taught us anything, it ought to be that much of our firmly established scientific consensus is almost certainly wrong, or at least not quite right. I reckon that caveat ought to be written above the doors of such places that tell us so confidently about the origins or nature of the universe.
