Question: Will Charles Darwin's former residence, Down House, be converted to a Creation Museum?
In previous articles, we pointed out that biblical creationism is growing and becoming more prominent in London and the UK. In addition, recently London, England tops a list of cities most visiting the prominent creationist website Creation.com. Furthermore, recently some staunch atheists became evangelical Christians at a prominent evangelical Christian summer event.
Additionally, we know that creationism is growing in Europe even in places like secular France. Also, according British scholar Eric Kaufmann, who is a professor at Birkbeck, University of London, current demographic trends, which includes a sub-replacement fertility rate of secularly minded people, points to an upcoming desecularization of the Western World.

Charles Darwin's former residence
The pro-evolution website Wikipedia was founded by an atheist and agnostic.
Down House is the former home of the English naturalist Charles Darwin and his family. It was in this house and garden that Darwin worked on his theories of evolution by natural selection which he had conceived in London before moving to Downe.It is an irony of history that young earth creationism is alive and growing in London which is very near Down House. Given that cities often expand due to urban sprawl and that London is one of the fastest growing cities in Europe, it would not surprise me if London become closer to Down House over time. If anti-Darwinism is alive and growing in London, then evolutionism is not safe anywhere - especially since evolutionists cannot satisfactorily answer the 15 questions for evolutionists.
The house stands next to Luxted Road 0.25 miles (0.40 km) south of Downe, a village 14.25 miles (22.93 km) south east of London's Charing Cross, which was still known as Down when he moved there in 1842. In Darwin's day Downe was a parish in Kent: it subsequently came under Bromley Rural District, and since 1965 is part of the London Borough of Bromley.
An elderly Charles Darwin told the Duke of Argyll that he frequently had overwhelming thoughts that the natural world was the result of design. In a letter to Asa Gray, Darwin wrote : "...I am quite conscious that my speculations run quite beyond the bounds of true science."
And as the cited articles indicate above, Biblical creationism is growing in London and in the UK in terms of its number of adherence and its prominence.
When Darwinism fades into the dust bin of failed human ideologies, will Down House be converted into a Creation Museum? The Museum of Scientific Atheism in Leningrad was restored to a church by order of the the former Soviet Union leader Mikhail Gorbachev. See: Museum of Scientific Atheism
