Article: Creationism museum

Interestingly enough, some dude is building a museum which will illustrate the story of creation as it is literally spelled out in the book of Genesis. The price tag? $25 million. Here's an interesting excerpt.....

Nothing can dent the designer's zeal as he leads us gingerly through the labyrinth of rooms still under construction, with bits of wood, and the odd dinosaur head occasionally blocking our path. The light of keenness shines from the faces of the workers, too, as they chisel out mountain sides and work out where to put the Tree of Life. They greet us cheerily as we pass. They, too, know they are doing the Lord's Work, and each has signed a contract saying they believe in the Seven Days of Creation theory. Mornings on this construction site start with prayer meetings. Don't think for a minute that this is some sort of crazy little hole-in-the-corner project.

I particularly like this excerpt as well.....

But what, I ask wonderingly, about those fossilised remains of early man-like creatures? Marsh knows all about that: "There are no such things. Humans are basically as you see them today. Those skeletons they've found, what's the word? ... they could have been deformed, diseased or something. I've seen people like that running round the streets of New York."

I'm wondering what former-mayor Giuliani would have to say about that.

In all honestly, I wouldn't mind visiting this museum at least once after it's completed. I would like to see what they are able to come up with.
