Creationists open biblical history museum

Pet dinosaurs visit free

The science desk here at El Reg has long held that creationism belongs in a museum. Now it seems that the creationists agree with us, as they have opened just such an institution.

All right, it is in Kentucky, but at least they're trying. The organisers, Answers in Genesis*, say they expect upwards of 250,000 visitors in the first year.

The new museum, which says it sheds light on the biblical account of Earth's formation, shows humans living alongside dragons dinosaurs (just after the expulsion from Eden, of course), and contains a 30-foot tall replica of Noah's ark.

It contains 60,000 square feet of exhibits that have been designed by Patrick Marsh, the man behind the Jaws and King Kong rides at Universal Studios.

It promises visitors "a fully engaging, sensory experience", complete with "realistic scenery, computer-generated visual effects, over 50 exotic animals, life-sized people, and dinosaur animatronics".

Scientific American notes that the launch of the $27m facility at the very least proves that the creationist movement is solvent. And at $20 a ticket for adults, this situation should only improve. ®
