Skip to comments.Creation museum still draws crowds, ruffles feathers after 2 Years
Posted on 06/01/2009 4:22:27 PM PDT by OneVike
The controversial Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., marked its second anniversary this past week with slightly lower numbers than its first year but with much excitement.
We enter our third year excited about the growing opportunities the museum provides for reaching people with the creation gospel message, commented Ken Ham, the founder and president of the 70,000-square foot museum.
We believe God is using us to make a difference in our post-Christian culture, and we will continue to do everything we can to help believers defend the Word of God, from the very first verse, he added.
When the museum first opened to the public on May 28, 2007, it drew a great deal of media exposure, largely because of its literal interpretation of the Bible. Packed with high-tech exhibits that include animatronic dinosaurs and a huge wooden ark, the $27-million museum attempts to align the Bibles literal account of creation with natural history. The museums staff and founder, like many other Young Earth creationists, believe dinosaurs appeared on the same day God created other land animals

Hey guy, you might want to alert your ping list.
Creation Museum 1 year Anniversary ping.
Does this mean that the earth is now 6,001 years old?
Probably closer to that than 4,600,000,001.
>>But it is amusing how much this must aggravate the hell out of the radical evolutionists.
As opposed to what? Radical mathematicians who say that pi is the ratio of any circle’s circumference to its diameter in Euclidean space? Hee Hee, how fun it is to get their goat when we all know pi can be adjudicated to be 3.131!
And those silly radical physicists who use trigonometric vector addition to describe the effects of known physical laws. Haw Haw, how silly they are to know that their calculations are all wrong since the Universe is 6.000 years old.
Math, Calculus, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Geology, Astronomy — how silly the followers of these are.
I mean, all ideas are equal when you remove scientific requirements.
I personally don't believe in witchcraft but the science is the same as the Creation Museum.
This is religion — you shan’t be hearing from me again.
>>I do not get how aggravated people get over this museum. Just don’t go.<<
I am thinking of opening a “astrology museum” as an alternative to that silly “astronomy” that is taught in schools.
The underlying science doesn’t matter at all. I can show that when the Moon is in the 7th House that it is completely scientific and people should understand that it is The Man who keeps it under lock and key!
Most of your pingees don’t even believe that Humans and Dinosaurs lived together.
There may be interesting dichotomies of interpretation of Genesis (really, the only basis for debate), but the intelligent ones don’t see Fred Flinstone’s Bedrock as ever having happening.
Kool. It could be interesting. Good luck.
Npw there is a liberal in the white house, I might be able to get a grant to start one.
It will have a heck of a lot more scientific basis than this so-called “museum.”
Understandable. Opinions come cheap when you don’t have a clue as to what you’re talking about.
There is indeed a diversity of opinion on my ping list. However, we are all united in our opposition to Darwin’s discredited Evo-religious creation myth.
This is the religion forum.
Please do not use personal attacks.
I am already edging, so will desist from here on out.
My mistake — this is religion.
I retract my prior statement.
Your attack on me can stand or not on its own merits.
>>Understandable. Opinions come cheap when you dont have a clue as to what youre talking about.
I respectfully ask you what you are talking about.
Science and the scientific method has quite a basis in fact. TToE has billions of data points and millions of adherents.
Which of these do you think I am misstating?
The same folks who think that an allegorical reading of Genesis would make God a (gasp!) liar, have no problem thinking God otherwise sprinkled false clues of an older earth just to fool us.
Looks like the headline was true. Better preen your feathers they look just a tad ruffled.
I wasn’t attacking you personally. I merely pointed out that my list is all opposed to the Temple of Darwin’s Evo-religion.
I live about an hour and a half from the museum, and find myself passing it for some reason or other about twice a year. At those times, I say to self that I’m gonna visit some day.
The Good Lord willin’.
>>Looks like the headline was true. Better preen your feathers they look just a tad ruffled.<<
More than 50% pf Americans voted for the obomanation. So what do numbers really mean?
>>I wasnt attacking you personally. I merely pointed out that my list is all opposed to the Temple of Darwins Evo-religion.<<
You most certainly were. But you get your usual bye and everyone else can make their own call on what happened.
I don’t get it, do you expect everyone to genuflect towards the Temple of Darwin just because you are passionate about your Evo-religion? Except for public schools, universities, government research centers, and various other taxpayer funded Darwin indocrination centers, Americans are entitled to their own opinions!
My post had nothing to do with numbers or politics so here's a metaphorical bunny with a pancake on his head.
I merely pointed out the fact that your feathers seemed ruffled re the headline.
By your response it seems you left some preening undone.
Actually it’s the two-year anniversary. I went the weekend after it opened in 2007.
>>I dont get it, do you expect everyone to genuflect towards the Temple of Darwin just because you are passionate about your Evo-religion?
No, I hope people will understand and apply scientific principle towards all matters pertaining thereto.
>>Except for public schools, universities, government research centers, and various other taxpayer funded Darwin indocrination centers, Americans are entitled to their own opinions!<<
Yes — funding of science is a terrible idea and has only resulted in things like mapping the genome, seeing billions of years into the past and providing great curatives like Metformin and Glumipride. Bad, BAD, scientists! How DARE you apply scientific methods to problems when there are people who don’t understand science with other opinions! BAD BAD Scientists!!
>>By your response it seems you left some preening undone.
I always have a problem leftover from my childhood. My butt-feathers always need preening.
I should thank you...
“This is religion you shant be hearing from me again.”
“This is the religion forum.
Please do not use personal attacks.
I am already edging, so will desist from here on out.”
Just can’t stay away, can you. Truth in advertising, please.
I’m for returning science to the private sector where it belongs. That way the free market can determine how many scientists we actually need. This would also serve to break the stranglehold over the ideology of science currently being exercised by the taxpayer-funded, judicially protected, jackbooted thugs over at the religiously motivated Temple of Darwin.
Have you been?
You’re welcome. While you’re back there nibble off what the toilet paper missed. You still look a bit ruffled there.
You can’t expect these guys to use logic.
Please take me off this ping list. Thanks!
FreeDumb doesn’t preen, he just let’s his feathers deteriorate. That is why he is a flightless bird. He calls that “evolution.”
That's a straw man argument. I don't know any religious believer that wants to do away with science. The scientific method has been a boon for mankind. I appreciate science and its contributions to our health, wealth, and standard of living.
I do have a problem when faith in science tries to supplant faith in God. There is enough doubt and contradictory evidence about evolution to warrant an opposing viewpoint being presented.
But that might upset the current consensus apple cart and challenge the secular-humanist government-sponsered psuedo religion taught to our children.
Can't have independent thinking along THOSE lines now can we?
Oh, drat! Looks like I killed another thread. Is it just me or does it happen to you too?
Why do you say false clues? It’s apparent that God made Adam as an adult, so it stands to reason He could do whatever he wanted in making the earth, including making it appear older than it is.
” largely because of its literal interpretation of the Bible. “
I guess I missed the part in the Bible where it discusses man riding around on saddled dinosaurs ....
You are correct, but Darwinist liberals created that nonsensical strawman argument, attacking creation, because liberals don't like the Bible.
Conservatives agree it is shameful to see liberal DU attacks repeated on Free Republic.
Actually, I find it rather amusing that these guys can scam the willing, again and again ....
Sometimes straw men and ad hominem are all they have left.
Discuss the issues all you want, but do not make it personal.
