Prime example of delusional thinking

The Creation "Museum" is 4 years old, and co-founder Mark Looy was interviewed.

"The number-one comment we get, whether it's from a Christian or a non-Christian, is that this place exceeded their expectations," he reports. "The quality of the exhibits, the special effects theatre, the state-of-the-art planetarium, the animatronics dinosaurs -- this is a museum unlike any other in the world."

Mark Looy (Answers in Genesis)But the museum is not just unique because it rejects evolution and proclaims creationism, says Looy, who notes it also "presents the history of the Bible in a fun and entertaining way." Non-Christians have toured the museum, including one group that consisted of 285 atheists. That, says the spokesman, is one reason why the facility is designed to be evangelistic.

I would agree that it is a "museum" unlike any other, because it isn't one. It's disneyfied fundamentalism, and it's more like a Hell House than a museum. But he noticed our visit from 2009, and misrepresented us: it did not exceed our expectations, unless you mean we expected some bullshit, and we received a mountain of bullshit and lies and paranoia and craziness.

Sure, it's evangelistic. Everyone I know who visited that heap were further convinced that these loons are nuts. So it's doing a fine job of evangelizing for atheism.
