The New Yorker
Dystopia in Kentucky
“The sixty-thousand-square-foot museum mimics the language, layout, and technical effects of state-of-the-art science museums: mastodon fossils and mineral crystals, soaring dioramas of life-size animatronic dinosaurs, several movie theatres, conference rooms, cafés, even a planetarium, and an echoing soundtrack of bird calls. But, as you pay your $19.95 and walk through the entry hall, there are clues that this is all a sophisticated sham.” (link)
In the Creation Museum, Enlightenment Is the Fall
“The New Yorker’s George Packer finds something far more sinister: a full assault on the Enlightenment, one which portrays our rise from the Dark Ages as a form of falling.”
Should You Take Your Kids to the Creation Museum?
“The Creation Museum is bad for both science and Christianity. It’s bad for science because it’s a slickly marketed presentation that falsely presents the case that there is any question about a number of scientific issues. It’s bad for Christianity because it teaches children and others that they have to hold on to these outmoded and incorrect ideas in order to hold on to their faith.” (link)
Creation Museum Unites Adam, Eve, Dinos
“Ken Ham, the president of Answers in Genesis, the group that is funding the museum, says that only “secular scientists” would maintain that the first humans never lived with dinosaurs. “[Scientists] can say that, but what’s their evidence?” Ham says, insisting that “All land animals were made on day six.”" (link)
Creation Museum Leader Sued
“An Australian evangelical group has filed a suit against the founder of the Kentucky-based Creation Museum alleging he stole subscribers away from its magazines.” (link)
The Christian Post
Did Dinosaurs Live With Man?
“…While there have been extensive arguments over the issue by religious and secular groups, strict creationists have begun to make a strong push toward trying to prove the legitimacy of the co-habitation of dinosaurs with mankind. According to them, there is no question that God created the two on the same day just few thousands of years ago.” (link)
