Oh No… Creation Museums Thursday, June 14, 2007Posted by h3nry in anti-evolution, Australia, Canada, Christianity, creation museum, creationism, fundamentalism, intelligent design, Kentucky, museums, religion, science.
The recent opening of the $US27 million Kentucky based creation museum has ignited a wide media coverage and caused a storm in the blogsphere. The timing of it is right on the money, given the recent popular rise of atheists books and the pesky Intelligent Design movement.
And there is the opening of another creation museum, this time in Canada. This one turns out to be a flop so far – little media coverage and its opening was miserable. Perhaps $27 million does make a difference, hey?
Anyway, after a quick research on the Internet, here is a list of creation museums. I am based in Sydney and so was pleased to see that there is none in Australia… until I remembered that the organisation behind the creation museum, Answer In Genesis, is being sued by its Australian equivalent, Creation Ministries International in Australia. Apparently the brain behind the Kentucky “museum” has some Australian roots.
