Adam and Eve Rode Dinosaurs
You’ve all read by now about the opening of the Genesis Museum which, among other untruths, will have displays showing that man and dinosaur shared the earth just 6,000 years ago. This is the brain child of Ken Ham, founder of Answers in Genesis, who 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.”
Don’t want people to hear? Jeebus, Ken, there are literally hundreds of thousands of churches, synagogues, mosques, religious schools and temples out there whose pastors, reverends, priests, holy men, monks and elders continue to spout this drivel every day in a desperate attempt to persuade the people to cling to these old, tired ideas (so that, poor as they are, they will continue to give the churches, synagogues, mosques, religious schools and temples some of their money).
A visit to Ken’s website and especially this article reveals his utterly astounding rationale for why the current science is really just a bunch of hogwash. I have to insert my favorite paragraph. (italics are mine)
“However, scientists do not dig up anything labeled with those ages. They only uncover dead dinosaurs (i.e., their bones), and their bones do not have labels attached telling how old they are. The idea of millions of years of evolution is just the evolutionists’ story about the past. No scientist was there to see the dinosaurs live through this supposed dinosaur age. In fact, there is no proof whatsoever that the world and its fossil layers are millions of years old. No scientist observed dinosaurs die. Scientists only find the bones in the here and now, and because many of them are evolutionists, they try to fit the story of the dinosaurs into their view.”
I find it very hard to believe that, in this day and age, anyone would take this kind of crap seriously. I find it more disturbing that another generation of children will be indoctrinated with this fantasy. Its like having a museum that depicts the Jews in the camps gassing themselves and the Nazis running around trying to save them. It’s not true, it’s not based on any historical or scientific evidence, but this is America, and we have a right to teach it to our kids.
