Moses Rode A Dinosaur Out Of Egypt

Have you seen that new museum in Cincinnati that is based on the old testament. It has Adam and Eve frolicking with dinosaurs. The founders of this museum have a little problem with evolution. The scientific community is up in arms.
"When they try to confuse (kids) about what is science and what isn't science, scientists have an obligation to speak out," said Lawrence Krauss, an author and physics professor at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
"There's no doubt these are documented lies." Krauss has signed one of two petitions circulated by national groups this week that challenge the facility's exhibits.
The founder of the museum has a pretty good comeback:
Answers in Genesis founder Ken Ham said the vast majority of natural history museums and textbooks available to students are devoted to teaching evolution. "And they're worried about one creation museum?" he said. "I think they're really concerned that we're going to get information out that they don't want people to hear."
He makes a pretty good point, I'd say. Now, don't get me wrong, he's batshit crazy, but there are a lot of people who agree with this guy.

The people funding this museum and will be most of the paying customers are social conservatives, the "values voters". These are people who think Bush is doing a great job and that victory is just around the corner in Iraq. These people think Bush is a conservative.

When you're that crazy you don't have any problem thinking the earth is only 8,000 years old and that The Flinstones is a reality based show.

Well, if Moses rode a dinosaur out of Egypt, what happened to the dinosaurs? Why are we still around and they aren't? Where did they go? Did they fall off the edge of the earth?

Beats the living hell out of me.

I live less than an hour away. My wife and I will be visiting this learning center sometime in the early summer. I'm hoping to do some audio for a podcast and pictures for a post.
Ken Hamm is truly unbelievable--he sounds like Steve Irwin right down to the almost breathy enthusiasm. You can hear him here.
Can't wait.

You've got it right Mustang - that's exactly what happened: they fell of the edge and drowned in the "waters that are below the Earth" we read about in Genesis. Of course some of the more agile ones have climbed up onto the hollow bowl of the "firmament" and that's why we have meteorites and the occasional comet.

The Bible has all the answers - no reason to "believe" in science.

Funny I should stumble upon this post today. Just earlier, I was showing some pictures I took of the Rocky Mountains to my daughter and telling her (boring her, more likely) about how the stripes visable on the side of the mountain were created as the mountain shifted, and how each layer represents tens of thousands of years of movement and sentiment deposits. I told her to think about that the next time she hears somebody tell her how the earth was created 3,000 years ago, as some would suggest.

People like the ones you describe at this museum love science when it comes to fill a prescription or go to the doctor, but are all to willing to ignore it when it doesn't fit the little fairy tails they tell themselves.

Sure they have the right to believe whatever they want, but I'll fight them like hell when they try to introduce this nonsence into public school curriculums, like the "intelligent design" crowd.
