In Evolution Debate, Creationists Are Breaking New Ground
The Washington Post ^ | Sunday, September 25, 2005 | Michael Powell

PETERSBURG, Ky. -- The guide, a soft-spoken fellow with a scholarly aspect, walks through the halls of this handsome, half-finished museum and points to the sculpture of a young velociraptor.

"We're placing this one in the hall that explains the post-Flood world," explains the guide. "When dinosaurs lived with man."

A reporter has a question or two about this dinosaur-man business, but Mark Looy -- the guide and a vice president at the museum -- already has walked over to the lifelike head of a T. rex, with its three-inch teeth and carnivore's grin.

"We call him our 'missionary lizard,' " Looy says. "When people realize the T. rex lived in Eden, it will lead us to a discussion of the gospel. The T. rex once was a vegetarian, too."

Folks, your humble host has already previewed the museum. It's going to be pretty cool. Planned opening (from what my souces tell me) is Spring/Summer 2007. Be there. :-)

(((Creationist Ping!)))



You have been pinged because of your interest in matters of Creation vs. Evolution, Creation trumping evolution, and evolutionary fraud. Freep-mail me if you want on/off this list.

Colossians 1:16 "For by him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him."

I cringed when I read the article. There is no conflict between the Bible and the overwhelming prepondenderance of data indictating that the universe is 14 billion or so years old. God doesn't lie.

Bwahahahaha. And they're calling it Jurassic Park Hall.

Well, thing of it is, something as simple and obvious as tree rings or the yearly ice layers of Greenland gets you well beyond 6,000 years, without any sort of radioisotope dating at all.

Was some discussion on some of the previous Crevo threads as to how many actual YECs were left at all; clearly, there are a lot. Pretty sad, really.

Crocodiles, alligators and sharks. Yea these dinosaurs are still with us today. But T-Rex and V-Raptor? Get real.

I don't think that there are really all that many, but the mainstream press does all it can to tie together any conservative, creationist Christian with the Young-Earth Creationists. The goal is to make Christians look ludicrous. Out of all the possible stories about Christians out there, the Washington Post chose to do this one. They've got an agenda and sincere, but misinformed, Christians actually help them accomplish their agenda.

Actually there is a MAJOR conflict of evidence that indicates the universe is NOT 14 billion years old.

You are right about this -> God doesn't lie. He meant exactly what He said. He created the earth and all we see and don't see in seven literal days. The order He did it in, is perfectly logical as well.

I'm sorry to hear your god can't do that.

If 6000 years is the age of death then we would be up to our chins from the bones of dead animals. I believe in creation and divine intervention but not this 6000year
corn pone.

Next we'll be hearing about a new Intelligent Design Theory corollary regarding counting.

I think you hit it on the head. Leave it to the MSM to use the wackos to discredit the whole issue.

My God can, but the evidence given by the Bible and by his creation shows that he chose to create the universe over a long period of time. I'm sorry that you refuse to recognize that evidence.

Don't try to steer this into a discussion of what God can or can't do. This is a discussion of what God actually did do. There's a big difference, even if you don't recognize it.

Polls taken last year showed that 45 percent of Americans believe that God created humans in their present form 10,000 years ago (or less)

Ignorance on parade. IIRC there was also a poll of college students that showed that only half knew what century the American Civil War was in. Imagine what a poll of the general population would show.
