The Creation Museum – about us

14 08 2007

From the Creation Museum‘s website. The Creation Museum is in Petersburg, Kentucky in the United States.

The Creation Museum presents a unique and unparalleled experience, a walk through time portraying significant, life-altering events of the past, illuminating the effects of biblical history on our present and future world.

Be prepared to experience history in a completely unprecedented way.

The state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.

The area within the museum has been divided into unusually configured spaces that allow for personal interaction with each of the 160 exhibits. Several parts of the museum, including the stunning forty-foot high portico with its cliff wall and floor-to-ceiling glass windows, flaunt open spaces and remarkable designs.

I guess that means the C”M” will be inviting papers and scheduling open dialogs and presentations?

No respect due or needed.

Notice that I’ve put a definition of what a real museum involves. My attempt at a bit of humour I suppose.

But as I say in the about, these opinions exist and I’ve found them of note. There’s plenty of contradictory posts in the science category.
