Bill Nye "The Science Guy" was booed in Waco, Texas in 2006 for suggesting the Moon did not generate its own light, but reflected light from the sun.
Trouble started when the children's entertainer brought up Genesis 1:16, which reads: "God made two great lights -- the greater light to govern the day and the lesser light to govern the night. He also made the stars," and pointed out that the lesser light was actually a reflector.
At this point, several people in the audience stormed out, including woman with three small children who shouted, "We believe in God!" and left.
This is less of a slam on Christians than a particular breed of Christian - reactionary, stimulus-response troglodytes who hide behind their religion as a shield from actual knowledge. To be fair, people like this are easy targets (and pretty much universally mocked), though I find this stuff endlessly fascinating.
EDIT: Oops - old story. This is cropping up everywhere again for some reason.
