I See An Awesome Field Trip in My Future

I saw this on the news  last night.

A Creation Museum will be opening May 28 in Kentucky that is based on a literal interpretation of the Bible.

Here’s a short excerpt of what this museum is all about (taken from their website):

The Creation Museum will be upfront that the Bible is the supreme authority in all matters of faith and practice, and in every area it touches upon.

We’ll begin the Museum experience by showing that “facts” don’t speak for themselves. There aren’t separate sets of “evidences” for evolution and creation—we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. We’ll then explore why the Bible—the “history book of the universe”—provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things.

After that, we’ll take guests on a journey through a visual presention of the history of the world, based on the “7 C’s of History”: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, Consummation. Throughout this family-friendly experience, guests will learn how to answer the attacks on the Bible’s authority in geology, biology, anthropology, cosmology, etc., and they will discover how science actually confirms biblical history.

I am so excited.  Finally we have a “sophisticated” museum that teaches the truth!  In fact, it’s touted to be so sophisticated that “skeptics are worried that it will be more effective in giving children a distorted view of science!” (my emphasis).

The executive director of the National Center of Science Education even voices her concern that “they’ll (the children) show up in class and say to their teacher, “Hey Mrs. Brown, I went to a spiffy museum this summer and they say that everything that you’re teaching is a lie.” 

Amen and amen.

  1. Hi! Thanks for sharing the news about this museum. I am excited to see such a museum opening and would definitely love to visit it.

    Thanks also for stopping by The Porch Light and sharing your experience with CD Baby. I loved your e-mail! 🙂

  2. Hi Revka,
    Thanks for dropping by! Yes, we’re excited too. It’ll be an 8 hour drive for us, but we’ll fit it in our schedule somehow!

    I just found out that Answers in Genesis built this museum debt-free. And that the $27M price tag speaks only of actual cash expended for the museum. The actual value of the place, plus all the volunteer labour…definitely worth way more than that!

  3. […] he decided we would take the drive down here to check out the Creation Museum.  Here’s my earlier post on […]
