Well, the assault on reason continues.

We’ll begin the Museum experience by showing that “facts” don’t speak for themselves (click here for a proposed drawing of this exhibit). There aren’t separate sets of “evidences” for evolution and creation—we all deal with the same evidence (we all live on the same earth, have the same fossils, observe the same animals, etc.). The difference lies in how we interpret what we study. We’ll then explore why the Bible—the “history book of the universe”—provides a reliable, eye-witness account of the beginning of all things.

This is the mission of the Creation Museum. Curiously, they now accept that dinosaurs roamed the Earth. I think that is new within my lifetime. Obviously they accept that the Sun is the center of the solar system. That is new in that last few hundred years.

This makes me sick for a couple of reasons. I must confess that one of those reasons is jealousy. How can a group that just lies, that is unfaithful to the words in the Bible, and that is working hard to destroy something as important to our daily lives as science and critical thinking be thriving, while my little church that encourages thinking, that actually words hard to understand the words in scripture and that tries to make the world a better place for the poor, the homeless, and those who are strangers in this new land be struggling to reach critical mass?

It also makes me sick because it is so illegitimate. It is such an assault on our faith as well as our science. We have to be loud about why this is clearly inconsistent with the scripture. I think I need to write a letter to the editor. I think everybody does.
