Creation Museum Drawing Crowd Seeking Lessons On Life's Beginnings By The Bible

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A controversial museum that uses the Bible's version of the earth's history is drawing thousands of visitors more than a year after its opening.

The Creation Museum's exhibits are taken from the Old Testament, but its effects are pure Hollywood. They include a state-of-the-art planetarium, animatronics and a massive model of Noah's Ark.

And it has become an unexpectedly strong draw for visitors. More than a half million people, organizers claim, have toured the Kentucky attraction since its May 2007 opening.

Scientists say they fear it could hamper some young visitors' science education. One of the museum's displays shows humans co-existing with dinosaurs -- despite the two species being separated by 65 million years in science texts.
