What is the purpose? To lead people to a better understanding of God by viewing His Creation and to show that creation science can explain the evidence we see in the world around us and that it is not just religion.

Dear Fellow Creationists:

  • Have you ever seen a fourteen foot tall mammoth?
  • Have you ever been up close to a Stegosaurus?
  • Have you ever tried to imagine what a Psittacosaurus (the dinosaur that rocked the scientific world in 2005) looked like?

Our dream for the Treasure Valley of Idaho is to create a science museum where these questions and more could be answered in an accessible and interactive way. We want to present science not only from the evolutionist paradigm shown in state-controlled museums, but also show the compelling censored science that those museums do not show, in order to allow people to draw their own conclusions about the origins of life.

Watch How The Creationism Museum Depicts Teachers Who Teach Evolution

Buzzfeed's Matt Stopera visited the Creation Museum in Kentucky and takes note of the various attractions and lessons learned. The centerpiece is a Universal Studios-style multimedia movie experience ("Just think how it could change her life if Wendy found out there really is purpose and meaning to her existence!") designed to cement kids' scorn and skepticism of evolution-spouting teachers, with a simple but effective message – caring about science is for nerds:
They had this special effects show in a big theater with shaking chairs and water sprinklers. It was pretty cool and very Disney. This part caught my attention, though. They were constantly tearing down teachers. Teachers who teach evolution are the worst!

Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham: The Debate

bill-nye-ken-ham-debateOn Tuesday night, Bill Nye the Science Guy debated Ken Ham (founder and head of Answers in Genesis) at Ham’s Creation Museum in Kentucky for a lively debate which centered around the following question: “Is creation a viable model of origins in today’s modern scientific era?” The debate was moderated by Tom Foreman (CNN) and he kept a tight leash on the evening, making sure that both Nye and Ham had equal time to comment and respond. They each gave a five-minute opening statement, followed by a half-hour presentation (each), then time for rebuttals, and ended the evening with quite a few questions from the audience.

Some scientists are annoyed with Nye for giving Ham what they consider to be unnecessary publicity and a platform from which to espouse his unique beliefs. While I understand these concerns, I have a slightly different take: as someone who was raised by young-earthers (I actually met Ham at a creationist conference in upstate New York when I was a kid…yes, that was our family vacation that year!) I am really hoping that parents of similarly-minded households the world over will sit their kids down and force them to watch this debate or that said kids will find their way to it on their own, because it may in fact be the first time in their young lives when evolution will be presented to them in a way that is logical, balanced, and non-biased.… Read the rest

God Shocks Creationist Museum Staffer With Lightning

creation museumIn an effort to boost severely disappointing attendance figures, Kentucky’s controversial Creation Museum recently added an outdoor zip line attraction, which has been criticized as not really have anything to do with the Bible. Local WLWT reports that the Lord himself has weighed in:

A staff member was injured Wednesday while clearing guests from a zip line at the Creation Museum.

Staffers had cleared the lines before 1:20 p.m. as storms moved into Boone County. Museum officials said a male staffer touched an object that had been energized by lightning and was injured. He was taken to an area hospital as a precaution, but his injuries were not considered to be serious.

The zip line attraction opened this spring to help the religion-themed museum attract a wider audience.
