The folks over at the Guardian Unlimited have an interesting report about the world’s first creationist museum, which is scheduled to open soon:
The Creation Museum – motto: “Prepare to Believe!” – will be the first institution in the world whose contents, with the exception of a few turtles swimming in an artificial pond, are entirely fake. It is dedicated to the proposition that the account of the creation of the world in the Book of Genesis is completely correct, and its mission is to convince visitors through a mixture of animatronic models, tableaux and a strangely Disneyfied version of the Bible story.
That’s right folks – a museum dedicated to the proposition that the book of Genesis is factually correct – and everything in the museum is fake. The most interesting thing, in my opinion, is how they fit in all the dinosaurs: They appear in the Garden of Eden – with their contemporary species, homo sapiens – prior to the fall of man.
Apparently, in order to keep some of the museum investors happy, both Adam and Eve will not appear in the nude, as the Bible says (so much for Biblical accuracy), but rather discretely and tastefully covered in some way.
