One more reason NOT to go to Kentucky (as if I needed another one?)…..
A 25 million dollar “creationist” museum, which depicts people walking around with dinos.
Mark Looy, a vice president at Answers in Genesis, said the museum has received at least $21 million in private donations. He said two anonymous donors have given $1 million, and he expects the museum to be debt-free when it opens next May.
John Morris, president of the Institute for Creation Research in San Diego, an organization that promotes creationism, said the museum will affirm the doubts many people have about science, namely the notion that man evolved from lower forms of life.
“Americans just aren’t gullible enough to believe that they came from a fish,” he said.
But wait, the voice of reason????
“Genesis is not science,” said Mary Dawson, curator emeritus of vertebrate paleontology at the Carnegie Museum of Natural History in Pittsburgh. “Genesis is a tale that was handed down for generations by people who really knew nothing about science, who knew nothing about natural history, and certainly knew nothing about what fossils were.”
Mary Dawson, ladies and gentleman!
