I found this nervous quote from the critics telling..."Educators are worried that because the museum's presentation is so sophisticated it may give children a distorted view of science."Rather autobiographical isn't it. Most of what is believed by the average joe about evolutionary biology isn't reached through objective personal observation but through exposure to the seamless unchallenged populist presentations in school textbooks, movies, and the museums. (Although the report stated 60% of Americans still believe in 6 days of creation.)Last week in Chicago, I visited the Field museum where they had some 'proto-human' bones displayed in a solemn glass case in a dimly lit room with a spotlight all calculated to infuse the viewer with an almost spiritual sense of awe and reverence. And even though not a single facial bone was there, the museum artists had no problem in imagineering a sculptural "restoration" of the face which amazingly was a perfect blend of ape and man. (Edit: I'm sure they meant well, but it was a case of "the emperor has no face".)I'm glad the Creation Museum is down there challenging our pagan myths. MC

"Educators are worried that because the museum's presentation is so sophisticated it may give children a distorted view of science."Eugenie Scott, PhD, Exec.Dir. Natl. Center for Science Education:"They will show up in classrooms, and say: "Gee Mrs.Brown, I went to this very spiffy museum last summer and they say that everything you're teaching me is a lie." Ken Ham, President, Answers in Genesis:"And I say: Great! Amen! That's what this place is all about. It's meant to challenge people."Amen! Praise God! May many people get challenged by this place and think twice about what they believe as "science".
The church I've been going to has been really excited about this for quite awhile. I wouldn't be surprised if we took a trip to see it sometime.
I was also very glad when I read the open mission statement on their site:[b]Museum mission statement[/b] * [b]Exalt Jesus Christ as Creator, Redeemer and Sustainer[/b] through a safe, wholesome, family-friendly center for learning and discovery that clearly presents major biblical themes from Genesis to Revelation. * This center will equip Christians to better [b]evangelize the lost with a sense of urgency,[/b] through a combination of exhibits, research and educational presentations that uphold the inerrancy of the Bible. * This center will also challenge visitors to receive [b]Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord and to accept the authority of the Bible[/b] by providing culturally relevant biblical and scientific answers from a biblical worldview.http://www.creationmuseum.org/about
