Cretin in Kentucky creates Cretin-ist "museum"
How long until it goes under?
I give it 5 years, tops.

Creationism Museum Set To Open Next Year

PETERSBURG, Ky. -- A $25 million museum focused on the theory of creationism is scheduled to open next year in rural Northern Kentucky, about 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati.

Museum founder Ken Ham said the Bible inspired the museum, which pitches a literal interpretation that contends God created the heavens and the Earth just a few thousand years ago.

He said the goal of his privately funded museum is to change minds and rebut the scientific point of view.

(Note: "...rebut the scientific point of view." Yeah, can't have THAT now, can we?) :crazy: :rofl:

1. Wonder if Creation Science
Was used in designing the floor joints, roof supports, fire alarm, elevators and security system.

Those Greeks were all Sodomites anyway, right? (Aristotle, Pythagoras, Euclid.)

The jokes write themselves, don't they?

4. The funniest thing about it is, this "Ken Ham" looks like Dr. Zaius.

6. No shit.

Believing in a relatively young Earth (i.e., only a few thousands of years old, which we accept) is a consequence of accepting the authority of the Word of God as an infallible revelation from our omniscient Creator.

Recently, one of our associates sat down with a highly respected world-class Hebrew scholar and asked him this question: If you started with the Bible alone, without considering any outside influences whatsoever, could you ever come up with millions or billions of years of history for the Earth and universe? The answer from this scholar? Absolutely not!

Lets be honest. Take out your Bible and look through it. You cant find any hint at all for millions or billions of years.

For those of you who have kept up with our lectures and our articles in Creation magazine, you will have heard or read quotes from many well-known and respected Christian leaders admitting that if you take Genesis in a straight-forward way, it clearly teaches six ordinary days of Creation. However, the reason they dont believe God created in six literal days is because they are convinced from so-called science that the world is billions of years old. In other words, they are admitting that they start outside the Bible to (re)interpret the Words of Scripture.


'so-called science' :crazy:

So, either The Bible is wrong, or every single piece of physical evidence pertaining to our natural world is wrong. Wow! What a tough choice!
