I have mixed feelings about this one. The Answers in Genesis group is working to put together the funds for the “Creation Museum” in Cincinnati. On the one hand, it seems really cool that a creationists natural history museum includes such things as dinosaurs in their perspective. I may not know enough about creationism, but my perspective was that dinosaurs were ignored due to the fact that they conflicted with Genesis. Of course, I’m also a little frightened by the museum. I don’t know that I’d want my child going off into any rooms without me for fear of some sort of brain-washing treatment. Reading around at the museum’s initial proposals leaves me very curious and stand-offish at the same time.
What is so different about this museum?
Almost all natural-history museums proclaim an evolutionary, humanistic worldview. For example, they will typically place dinosaurs on an evolutionary timeline millions of years before man. AiG’s museum will proclaim the authority and accuracy of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and will show that there is a Creator, and that this Creator is Jesus Christ (Colossians 1:15-20), who is our Savior.
