The Cincinnati Zoo has canceled a joint ticket promotion with the nearby Creation Museum in Kentucky, which presents the Bible's version of natural history.

Some scientists and bloggers had complained that the zoo should not work with a religious museum that rejects the theory of evolution. The promotion, granting 2-for-1 admission to the zoo's holiday light show and the Creation Museum's live nativity performance, was on the zoo's website Sunday, but was gone by Monday afternoon.

m president Ken Ham said, "We certainly understand why they've had to do this, but again it comes down to intolerant people who are intolerant of the Christian position in this nation -- and unfortunately we see that sort of intolerance growing."

Ham says it is not true that the zoo is scientific while the museum is not. "The zoo talks about animals and animal behavior and so on. We would agree with all of that," he points out. "The only statements [with which] we would disagree is [sic] when they talk about the origin of the animals -- where they came from in the first place -- which is not observational science."

The zoo did not immediately return calls to The Associated Press seeking comment.
