The biased press has an article on the Answers In Genesis Museum due to open next Spring. The press totally misses the point of the Museum, though it claims that it has it pretty well understood:
Like most natural history museums, this one has exhibits showing dinosaurs roaming the Earth. Except here, the giant reptiles share the forest with Adam and Eve.
That, of course, is contradicted by science, but that’s the point of the $25 million Creation Museum rising fast in rural Kentucky.
Notice again in the article that the author continually puts “scientists” up against “creationists” even though he does mention that the Museum is impressive. He continually frames things to say that Ken Ham is trying to say that there Creationists have answers, but scientists have already proved them wrong. Like this quote:
Scientists say fossils and sophisticated nuclear dating technology show that the Earth is more than 4 billion years old, the first dinosaurs appeared around 200 million years ago, and they died out well before the first human ancestors arose a few million years ago.
“Genesis is not science,” said Mary Dawson, curator emeritus of vertebrate paleontology at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. “Genesis is a tale that was handed down for generations by people who really knew nothing about science, who knew nothing about natural history, and certainly knew nothing about what fossils were.”
What they leave out here is that there are scientists on both sides, and that you cannot prove history with scientists– none of these scientists that believe in evolution were there. As proof– scientists can’t even agree on how old the Earth has been there, whether it’s uniform in development or catastrophic– the only thing they can seem to remain constant about it that it didn’t happen the way the Bible says.
In the mean time, Answers In Genesis is rejoicing over the latest donation that seems to be the reason behind this article. Although a majority of the funding has come through small checks, a check for $1,000,000 came in this week. The Museum is on track to be debt free when it opens. This is simply amazing! It will definitely be worth a visit– whether you agree with Young Earth Creation or not.
