The Creation Museum in Kentucky is the gift that keeps on giving. I’ve twice in recent months written about some of the bizarre things that are taught there, and now? They’ve unveiled plans to exhibit a dinosaur skeleton that they claim will prove the Biblical account of creation.
They’ve already used the museum to put forth some really ridiculous ideas about where dinosaurs come from and why they became extinct, so this isn’t a surprise to discerning liberal Americans, nor is it a surprise to members of the Christian Left.
In a press release on their website titled “Something Big is coming,” the ?museum announced that they’re presenting a “world-class dinosaur skeleton” of the?Allosaurus fragilis, nicknamed “Ebenezer.”?According to the website, this specimen is believed to be one of only six or seven well-preserved?Allosaurus.
Creation geologist Dr. Andrew Snelling said this:
Dr. Snelling added that the intact skeleton of this allosaur is a testimony to an extremely rapid burial, which is confirmation of the global catastrophe of a Flood a few thousand years ago.
OK, well there you have it folks. CONFIRMATION of the global catastrophe of a flood a few thousand years ago. Confirmation.
Creation Museum president Ken Ham added this:
?[The Allosaurus fragilis skeleton]?fulfills a dream I’ve had for quite some time. For decades I’ve walked through many leading secular museums, like the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C., and have seen their impressive dinosaur skeletons, but they were used for evolution. Now we have one of that class for our museum.?
And here’s further proof of this miracle: the Creation Museum didn’t seek out this fine specimen. The specimen was a “blessing” that found them.
One blessing in getting the allosaur was that the Creation Museum did not seek it out. Michael Peroutka, one of the board members of the Foundation, says that this fossil is a testimony to the creative power of God and also lends evidence to the truth of a worldwide catastrophic flooding of the earth about 4,500 years ago as described in the Bible. In order to ensure that the display of the fossil represented this teaching, the Peroutka Foundation donated the fossil to the Creation Museum.
Visit the museum after Memorial Day 2014 to see this confirmation of the Flood (their caps, not mine). You’ll be able to see dinosaurs used in the
completely fabricated and exaggerated correct way.
??While evolutionists use dinosaurs more than anything to promote their worldview, especially to young students, our museum uses dinosaurs to help tell the account of history according to the Bible,” says Ham.
Here is the alarming thing: these people just make this stuff up. Seriously. As a sane member of the Christian Left, it’s so discouraging to see this kind of stuff because it gives the impression that all Christians are fools. Ugh.
