The Answers in Genesis Creation Museum is a one-of-a-kind, high-tech museum, filled with animatronic displays (e.g., moving dinosaurs), striking videos, a state-of-the-art planetarium, Special Effects Theater, etc., that is spread out over 60,000 square feet incorporating up to 40-foot ceilings to contain some of its massive exhibits. The museum will go beyond telling the compelling story of the creation of life on this planet to proclaiming the Bible as supreme authority in all matters it addresses. Set to open on May 28, 2007, at its location in northern Kentucky 2 exits west of the Cincinnati Airport, this $27 million “walk through history” museum will counter evolutionary natural history museums that turn minds against Scripture – and Jesus Christ, the Creator of the universe. As the museum presents its walk through the history of the Bible, visitors will see real dinosaur bones (and a clutch of eggs and other exceptional fossils), view a huge casting of a mastodon, examine a superb mineral collection, take a tour of the universe inside a state-of-the-art 78-seat planetarium, and experience what they would typically find in a first-class natural history museum. The museum's striking exhibits demonstrate to guests that the Bible is the “true history book of the universe” as they take a time journey through a visual presentation of the “Seven C’s of History” according to Scripture: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross and Consummation. ALRC News Kitchen: Creation Museum Are you wondering what Answers in Genesis Is? What is Answers in Genesis? An independent, nonprofit, international ministry organization based in Petersburg. Ken Ham, president of the ministry, developed his ideas in Australia and moved to the U.S. in 1987. After studying a similar ministry in San Diego, he decided to start his own ministry in a more central location which brought him and others to Boone County. What does the ministry believe? Those in the Answers in Genesis ministry believe in the literal interpretation of the Bible: that God created the world in six, 24-hour days on a planet just 6,000 years old (according to Biblical genealogies). This interpretation runs counter to accepted scientific theory, which says Earth and its life forms evolved over billions of years. Ham's views of history and science are based on a literal reading of Genesis, the first book of the Old Testament. Some of their beliefs include: that the Grand Canyon was formed not by erosion over millions of years, but by floodwaters (of the Great Flood) in a matter of days or weeks; that dinosaurs and man once co-existed; and that dozens of creatures - including T. rex - were passengers on Noah's Ark. Statement of faith Before a person is hired in the Answers in Genesis ministry (or the Creation Museum), he must sign a Statement of Faith. According to the Answers in Genesis Web site (www.answersingenesis.org), the worker agrees that he believes, among other things: that "Scripture teaches a recent origin for man and the whole creation," and "the only legitimate marriage is the joining of one man and one woman." Other beliefs include: "the great Flood of Genesis was an actual historic event" and "no apparent, perceived or claimed evidence in any field, including history and chronology, can be valid if it contradicts the Scriptural record." Temporary workers do not have to sign the Statement of Faith. The Enquirer - Creation Museum touches lives That's right, just a few minutes south of Cincinnati is a $27 MILLION dollar project teaching us that dinosaurs and people roamed the Earth together, and that Genesis is to be taken literally! What these misguided morons fail to accept is that their beliefs are NEW, traditional theologians do not support their view, which has only been in existence for about a hundred fifty years. If you wonder why I seem angrier than most, please try to consider where I live. If people don't get angry HERE, it could have devastating ripple effects on the rest of the nation. Don't believe me? Look at the 2004 "election". Happy trails.
