In which the word “museum” becomes meaningless

At Kentucky’s Creation Museum, which opens next spring, dinosaurs hang out with some giraffes, elephants, and flamingos near Noah’s ark. The “casting of a fossilized print is presented as a human footprint found among dinosaur footprints.” Never mind science; the place looks solely to the Bible for its evidence.

[T]he literal interpretation … contends God created the heavens and the Earth and everything in them just a few thousand years ago.

“If the Bible is the word of God, and its history really is true, that’s our presupposition or axiom, and we are starting there,” museum founder Ken Ham said during recent tour of the sleek and modern facility, which is due to open next year.

Stonings of rebellious children will be conducted in the courtyard daily at 11, 1, and 3 o’clock. (First link via GMB.)
