Skip to comments.Creation Museum's 1st visitor? Bill Maher

The new $30 million, 60,000-square-foot Creation Museum, built on prime real estate near Cincinnati's airport, isn't scheduled to open its doors officially until May 28, but it already had its first celebrity visitor.
The facility, the crowning achievement of Answers in Genesis, which defends a biblical worldview including its account of Creation, was visited unexpectedly and covertly by comedian Bill Maher, formerly of ABC's "Politically Incorrect" and lately of HBO's "Real Time," and who once said Christians suffer from a neurological disorder.
Ken Ham, president of the organization, calls the incident part of "an elaborate media deception."
"A video crew with so-called 'First Word Productions' arranged to come to AiG to visit the museum for a documentary on world religions," explains Ham. "At the end of their three-hour visit and taping, they wanted to do a sit-down interview with me in my office. They asked permission to drive around the back of the building to bring in their equipment. Then one of the crew members distracted a staff member who was with me and without registering with our security office, as they knew had to be done they propped open a back door and sneaked HBO commentator and comedian Bill Maher into my office. I only vaguely recognized him, and just figured this person was a latecomer to the filming."

Looks like Michael Moore has competition now.
What a despicable way to conduct business.
Why would Bill Maher even want to visit this museum.
Perhaps he wanted to see the truth.(I hope for great things)
The area in red was a quote from the Worldnetdaily article.
The sudden upheaval of the poor fellow's stomach must have disoriented him. "Butt Ugly" is Maher's trademark.
Well, I’m driving out to see it this summer. It sounds great.
Maher got publicity, that’s like jetfuel is to an airplane. He’s working on losing his second show. And yes, he IS butt-ugly, in a very disconcerting way.
Ping! It looks like this museum is just 70 miles north of my new home. And here I was planning to take my wife to another attraction in the area, the Newport Aquarium, if she starts missing Sea World.
Actually, I’ve been following their progress on this museum for a long time. And I’m glad they’ve finally got it down to the grand opening. I had been thinking about this summer. When I go, I’m planning on two full days, because I’ve seen how much they have packed in there and I think it will take two days to go through it fully.
But, I know that most people do not see *everything* in places like these. I think most people only skim through and never would spend more than one day.
Hmmm. Don’t really need the opening of this museum “maherred” by this nonsense...
He was fishing for new jokes, nothing more.
God does work in Amazing ways. Perhaps this is one of the ways ‘he’ will work on Bill Maher.
If you’d take her to the aquarium, I’m sure she’d be tankful.
So, Bill Maher, who I am sure doesn’t like the creation museum because he believes they are not telling the “truth” about science and origins, resorts to lying and deception in order to gain access to it. Smells like H..Y..P..O..C...R..I..T..E
Bill just wanted to see the truth about creationism, so he had to sneak in the back door so that all his cronies wouldn’t chastise him. :)
I sea you are trying to be punny again.
Does your sole get enjoyment from these actions; or are you just doing it for the halibut?
