According to a Museum, Dinosaurs Were on Noah's Ark

The attractions at a museum range in size, content, and even geological location. However, at Kentucky’s Creation Museum, the message being said is under quite a bit of scrutiny from religious groups and scientists alike. The museum is saying dinosaurs sailed on a ship, which is uncommon, to say the least. However, this ship is not just any old ship. It’s Noah’s Ark.

The creators of the museum hope to attract as many as .5 million people every year to this new exhibit, which makes the Bible’s first book, Genesis, truth.


The $27 million dollar museum has drawn laughs from the media, as well as the U.S. scientists, those who believe God created the Earth in six days feel their views are finally being properly represented.


Among other biblical wonders, the exhibits at this museum claim dinosaurs coexisted with humans at one point in time, that dinosaurs were passengers on Noah’s Ark, and that Cain only married his sister to populate Earth.


Many are planning on protesting the museum’s opening on Monday. In fact, many scientists and moderate Christians were pleased with the signs of protest during the museum’s opening news conference. During the conference, an aircraft with a banner saying “Thou Shalt Not Lie” flew overhead.


Opponents of the museum’s message feel children will not be educated by this exhibit, but simply confused, as in school children learn the universe is 14 billion years old, as opposed to 6,000 years old.


“What we’ve done here is to give people an opportunity to hear information that is not readily available … to challenge them that really you can believe the Bible’s history,” said president of the group Answers in Genesis, Ken Ham, to Yahoo! News.


Imagine the reaction on a teacher’s face when the students arrive in class a day after viewing the museum only to be more confused. After all, church and state are supposed to be separated. How would a teacher defend his/her teaching when some school districts dictate whether or not religious viewpoints may be brought into the classroom environment?


Dr. Eugenie Scott, executive director of the National Centre for Science Education, told reporters, “Teachers don’t deserve a student coming into class saying ‘Gee Mrs. Brown, I went to this fancy museum and it said you’re teaching me a lie”.


In fact, a Gallup poll from just last year noted that almost half of Americans do not believe in human evolution, but rather that humans were created by God within the last ten centuries.
