The Opposite of War Isn't Peace. It's Creation.

I'm torn between saying "It had to happen sometime" and "How on God's green earth could this have happened?". It appears that there is a new museum in town. The Kentucky Creation Museum, no less.
Visitors to the museum, a few miles from Cincinnati, will be able to watch the story of creation unfold in a 180-seat special-effects theater, see a 40-foot-tall recreation of a section of Noah's Ark and stare into the jaws of robotic dinosaurs.

"It's education, but it's also doing it in an entertaining way," Ham said.

That would be founder Ken Ham saying that. He also mentioned that, "Americans just aren't gullible enough to believe that they came from a fish". Ah. Well there you go then. Case closed. Personally, I'm intrigued by the books they'll be carrying in the gift shop.

Many thanks to Maud Newton for the info.

Before you mock or rely solely on what you have heard in 5th grade science, I would like to invite you to read "Case for a Creator"

Well, that answers the question I had at the end of my post.

Ah, Ken Ham. That explains a lot, as I've learned as a secular homeschooler. Ham himself has written a couple of interesting kids' titles he'll probably be flogging (no pun intended) in the gift shop, including "What Really Happened to the Dinosaurs?" and "The Great Dinosaur Mystery Solved." Bet you didn't know they made it onto the ark.

The gift shop sounds like a good place to leave some stickers and bookmarks.

As far as inviting people to read a particular book, I'd suggest Finding Darwin's God by Dr. Kenneth Miller of Brown University, which probably won't make it into the gift shop on its own, either.
