Educators Cast Doubt as Ky. Biblical-Based Museum Nears Opening

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - A Kentucky museum where Adam and Eve share exhibit space with dinosaurs is drawing criticism from groups of science educators as it nears completion.

The 27 (M) million dollar Creation Museum tells a biblical version of the Earth's history. The museum asserts that the planet is a few thousand years old and man and the giant lizards once coexisted.

The educators say its exhibits, inspired by the Old Testament, are geared toward children but lack scientific evidence.

The museum is being built by the nonprofit ministry Answers in Genesis with private donations. The 50-thousand square-foot facility in rural Petersburg, Kentucky, a few miles south of Cincinnati, will open to the public on Memorial Day.

    One more thing... Last time I checked, third world countries didn't have scientist. They had people dying from disease and hunger, and no computers to blog about it! Luckily, we are free and advanced enough in this first world country to have the knowledge and right to disagree.

    It's about time, it's been onesided too long, and Kenneth Ham seems to have a good handle on the situation. there are too many mistakes with Etolution, they don't have their act together and they really don't know what is going on. We are not becomming smater with EVOLUTION we are becomming Dumber they were smater than this 4 thousand years ago.

    Question for the non-believers of Creationism; where did the concept come from for using the numbers 2007 in today's date? Hmmmmm, could it be 2007 years since the death of you know who? But then again, when I read some of the ignorant comments on this website and see the ridiculously "cave man like" behavior exhibited by quite a few people I have to think...maybe Darwin was right!

    If it's true that religion is a method to keep the ignorant under control, then everything is under control in KY.

    Yes, Tracey. Take your own children if you'd like, but don't take other peoples children. Never, period, is very right.

    I have no problem with the "museum". They obviously have the right to use their money in whatever way they see fit to preserve and share their beliefs. And if they want to encourage individuals and church groups to attend, more power to them. However, this place should absolutely NEVER be on the list for state school sponsored trips. NEVER. Period.

    I am a Teacher and a Preacher, and I know that the scientists can not present proven evidence that the earth is older than 6500 years old. In fact, much of their so- called evidence has been fabricated down through the years.
