Does anyone know anything about a creation museum opening in Kentucky where the exhibits are based on the bible to explain things like dinosaurs and fossils.

You are probably referring to the Museum which Answers in Genesis have been working on for several years. If I lived in the U.S. I would want to try and see it. If you go on their website you'll find lots of information.

One thing I agree with M on is the need to address the issues instead of being distracted with men. But as a biologist and creation theologian I can assure you that the only contradiction between true science and the Bible is in the minds of the narrow minds who have not studied the facts.

MikeM- You have been challenged before on this website about your odd beliefs and it is you, not the creationists who have 'bailed.'

When I read your posts the phrase 'a wolf in sheeps clothing' comes to mind.
---Warwick on 3/23/07

I think Ken Hamm of Answers in Genesis is opening it. Do a search for his name or organization.
---wes on 3/23/07

thats part of the nature of questions everything,curiosity,an understanding of something unknown. A strong desire to know the facts,truth.BUT many times we just plain won,t let our minds grasp truth.the ultimate truth is in scripture and lord I praise the moment in time when EVERY KNEE WILL BOW AND EVERY TONGUE CONFESS THAT JESUS CHRIST IS LORD TO THE GLORY OF GOD THE FATHER.

They have a so-called 'creation science' musium in San deigo, I may visit, just for fun. Some undergrads I know went a few years ago. When it was discovered they were REAL bio/palentology students from Cal State, they were promptly escorted out. At least that is what I was told. I am told the 'musium' has an unapologetic manifesto that they believe the earth is only 6,000 years old. I note the defenders of Ham's 'musium' have bailed.
---MikeM on 8/14/06

I note the musium's 'defenders ' have all b ailed. I suspect it will be seen by most as an oddity, and little more. I hear say the educational level in America is dropping. This 'musium' is a testament to that fact.

MikeM -
I was actually agreeing with you. I think God gives us the ability to think in scientific terms, the results of which we should learn from. In doing so, we need to look at things like Genesis to see if there were meanings beyond the literal that God intended that we have yet to understand. I believe that is the correct confluence of science and religion - each can learn from the other. If I came from monkeys, terrific! God loves all his children.

I note I attacked personally, and the issue of the CREDIBILITY of this 'museum' is not dealt with. i suppose if private parties want to support it, thats fine. Its a major step backward to see real science deluted with this masking as 'science.' The educational level in this country, the richest in the world is clearly slipping backwards as evidenced by this 'musium.'
---MikeM on 8/6/06

This 'musium'-using the term loosly, is a religious exposition, nothing more. The attempt here is to delute science with psuedo-science and religion, that is my issue. I suppose thre Hindus, Islamics, Native Americas could build a musium according to their vision of how life was created, but in any case its not 'science.' It also must be remembered this 'musium' represents 5% of Christianity.

3. . I was blown away by God's remarkable provision, shares Ham in reacting to the Colorado group's gift as well as to the financial donations from grassroots supporters across the United States. "That means we have about two million dollars left to raise." P.T.L.
---f.f. on 8/6/06

Part of an email that I have received from Faith News Network reads:- Relying primarily on thousands of donations under $100, the Christian apologetics ministry Answers in Genesis (AiG) has been constructing the Creation Museum, a $25 million project near Cincinnati, Ohio. Imagine their surprise -- as well as shouts of joy and prayers of thanksgiving -- when a Colorado foundation recently made a one-million-dollar donation to the project.

MikeM I am really, really happy to be one of the 'most ignorant' in society as you, so beautifully, put it.
---M.P. on 8/6/06

Frank- 'that's being a faithful intelligent Christian.' Not sure what you are saying. The enemy here is literalism, which box's one in, requiring one to call denial faith. My education is in the hard sciences, and I see this 'creationism' as idiosyncratic religion trying to pass as science. This so-called 'musium' is a step backward, appealing only to the most ignorant in our society.
---MikeM on 8/5/06

You owe it to yourself to reconcile the story in the bible with the overwhelming science. Christians should have the faith to believe in the science (God created too remember), and use that faith to also understand what Genesis is trying to tell us. God's creation didn't stop at the bible - science is part of it as well...we are to learn as christian human beings about a great many things. That's not being a poor christian, that's being a faithful intelligent Christian.
---frank_cos on 8/5/06

Mp-What does Ken 'Hamm' stand for? I am not hateful, just disgusted. I suspected most thinking Christian folk are too.
I think what he says, to be blunt, appeals to the ignorant. It is 100% undefendable. Here, and elsewhere these 'creationist' ALWAYS, ALWAYS bail when in a debate situation, neer have I seen an exception, In college debate they would throw in the towel after retreating to rhetorical bromides. All they had was emotion.

MikeM is it quite deliberate that you spell Ken Ham's name incorrectly? You might disagree with all he stands for but your feelings against him come across as aggression. You refer to him as 'this Hamm' and 'hamm a former aussie'. Obviously I cannot hear the tone in your voice but you 'sound' quite hateful towards Ken Ham. In fairness to you I must add that Ken Ham often uses sarcasm when discussing evolutionists (I would prefer he didn't) but I think what he says is absolutely correct.
---M.P. on 8/5/06

Hamms 'musium' is a laughing stock. He believes God created the world in six, 24-hour days on a planet just 6,000 years old. No word yet on how a 24-hour day came to be before the earth was rotating, or whether or not that first day started at midnight EST or GMT. P.T Barnium built his empire on the same basis as does this Hamm, so Hamm will be successful. This biologist does not think Hamm is dumb, in fact his efforts will make him rich, he is an all American-flim-flam artist. (hamm, a former aussie)
---MikeM on 8/3/06

This museum has been under preparation for several years, under the guidance of Ken Ham of A. in. G. as others have said. Far from being an insult to Christians (or science) it is faithful to scripture. It is 'scientists' who insult the intelligence of Christians rather than the reverse, because this helps them to continue believing that they are right.
---f.f. on 8/3/06

My education is in biology. That so-called musium is an insult to science, it has nothing to do with science, its appeal is to the none lets say not well educated. It is also an insult to MOST Christians, who do not live in denial and call it faith. Is it important? Yes, if preventing America from moving backwards to a medieval form of Christianity is important, or retaining what real science is as opposed to ignorant superstitution, and medieval Christianity.

Aloha, I visited this first class museum in June. They are still working on it-Ken Hamm of Answers in Genesis. It was so exciting to
see it.The staff was friendly-even though I visited at the end of the day they
got me a drink since I was quite thirsty.
We all need to support such a first class
museum-we traveled all over the world and
I was so impressed with the quality of this
project. God Bless them for such a great and
much needed museum!! Aloha, Classical Christian Educator
