Fun at the Creation Museum


This past weekend we had the privilege of visiting the Creation Museum again. I have always been impressed with the quality of the exhibits and presentations, which are first class – even the critics who hate the idea of the museum acknowledge this. But I’m even more impressed that this entire building is dedicated to upholding the authority of God’s Word.

My wife, Casey, enjoys the petting zoo the most, especially the zonkey (half zebra, half donkey) and the zorse (half zebra, half horse). I think my favorite part is either the planetarium or the Last Adam theater, which presents the Gospel in a powerful way and shows how Jesus (the Last Adam) connects to Adam. I’m still a kid at heart so I really like the dinosaurs, especially the big T-Rex and I always make sure to stop in at the taco/burrito bar. Of course, it’s pretty cool to see two of my books in the Dragon’s Den bookstore.

We visited with some family friends and everyone had a great time. If you haven’t made the trip to northern Kentucky (greater Cincinnati area) to visit the museum, I would strongly recommend it for a family trip. Plan to spend an entire day to take in all of the activities and to have time to read the displays in the walkthrough.

Speaking of the critics, their vehement hatred of this place is just another testimony to the veracity of the message. Did you ever notice how most atheists and skeptics have a “live and let live” approach to the majority of churches or Christian ministries? Yet when it comes to a ministry that takes a strong stand on God’s Word – especially in Genesis – the critics cannot tolerate it. This is because the message proclaimed at the Creation Museum strikes at the very heart of the atheistic religion (yes, I said religion). You see, if evolution crumbles, then so does atheism, naturalism, Marxism, secular humanism, and so many other manmade “isms” that are diametrically opposed to God’s Word.

Christian leaders need to wake up to this fact and realize that if they are truly doing God’s work then they should expect opposition from an unbelieving world. Yet for the atheist/critic, why is there so much hypocrisy in their view? Why spend so much time seething about and mocking one museum which was privately funded? Don’t you believe a person has the right to believe whatever they want to? Why are you so offended about people believing in a God that you don’t even think exists? You don’t get upset with people who believe in unicorns, so why are you so afraid that people might be persuaded to believe in the God of the Bible?

Anyway, I better cut this short before I get going too long on the soapbox.

Thanks for reading.
