Creationism ‘Hall Of Fame’ Museum To Be Built In Kentucky

Pack the kids in the car and take them to see all of their favorite creationist heroes — a perfect unlearning opportunity. The Guardian reports:

A stretch of interstate in northern Kentucky may soon be the official capital for creationism fans across the globe. Online-only institution the Creation Science Hall of Fame hopes to establish a real-life creationism center located between the Creation Museum and planned creationism theme park Ark Encounter.

The hall of fame website was launched in February and honors “those who honored God’s word as literally written in Genesis.” Any scientist who the institution believes furthers the scientifically inaccurate idea that God created the world 6,000 years ago can be included.

There are several creationism institutions in the US, including another creation museum in Texas and a mobile museum that takes fossil exhibits to churches and schools. The hall of fame would solidify northern Kentucky as the center for creation-tourism. In a May 2012 Gallup poll 46% of Americans said they believe God created humans in the present form.

    Here in TN, they have taken steps though new legislation to
    allow creationism back into the classroom.  This law turns the clock back
    nearly 100 years here in the seemingly unprogressive South and is simply
    embarrassing. There is no argument against the Theory of Evolution other than
    that of religious doctrine. The Monkey Law only opens the door for fanatic
    Christianity to creep its way back into our classrooms. You can see my visual
    response as a Tennessean to this absurd law on my artist’s blog at

    with some evolutionary art and a little bit of simple logic.

    For families that are looking of a boring educational outing for the kids, just without the education.

    creation and man made religion are 2 very different worlds. to believe in a man made religion that is subject to error is not so smart
    to believe in a creator is a very different position

      Creation and creationism are also two very different words.

        i would very much love to hear your definitions without bringing man made religion  into the explanations

          “Creationism” in the context of the museum in Kentucky is all about man made religion. You can’t define it without bringing man made religion into it. And I never claimed that you could… All I’m saying is that, the word, “creationism” has come to mean a belief in the ridiculous creation story in Genesis. Which is very different than simply believing in creation in the sense that somewhere there is a “creator” (a deity or not) that could have somehow kick started this whole thing. 

          Personally, I don’t believe in either. I think we may actually be in some kind of agreement here… When I first read your comment, I read your word, “worlds” as “words.” I apologize if that lead to any confusion.
