Look, Ma! Dinosaurs and people must have lived at the same time because The Flintstones says so!
Like most natural history museums, this one has exhibits showing dinosaurs roaming the Earth. Except here, the giant reptiles (sic) share the forest with Adam and Eve.
This reporter has it all wrong! This is not a “natural history museum”, because if it was, it would clearly be scientific in its objectives. No, this instead is an extension of religious faith — a church! — which has nothing whatsoever to do with science, scientific experimentation or rational thought!
Ken Ham, an Australian native who started the Christian publishing company, Answers in Genesis, in the late 1970s, said the goal of his privately funded museum is to change minds and rebut the scientific point of view.
How are they going to do that, considering there is no scientific evidence whatsoever that supports creationism, nor anything to indicate that humans and dinosaurs (well, except avian dinosaurs) lived at the same time — unless you believe The Flintstones!! — whereas there are literally thousands of scientific papers published every year that refine the scientific facts supporting evolution that describe how all living things came into being.
Further, they are spending $25 million in private funds to construct this Disneyland for Christians so they can promote their special fantasy to the public and add to the growing “facts are meaningless” doublespeak campaign in this country, while thousands of working Americans are hungry, homeless and without health care. And they complain about kids reading Harry Potter books!
(Oh, by the way, speaking of Harry Potter, it’s JK Rowling’s birthday today: so happy birthday!)
