I remain ever fascinated by the Creation Museum, the 27-million-dollar theme park in Bullittsburg, Kentucky, designed to reinforce old-fashioned young-earth creationism in a newfangled “modern” way. Among the plasma screens and blaring videos, there’s a suprising amount of dinosaur paraphenalia. I say surprising because Answers in Genesis, the people behind the Creation Museum, believe that the earth is only 6,000 years old. So why on earth are they promoting creatures which died out millions of years ago? I explore this question in my latest post at The Faster Times, where I am excited to be covering the Science and Religion beat. All tips, comments, and rants welcome.
