Answers in Genesis is in the news again this week. From the BBC comes an article about the Creation Museum. Here are a couple of excerpts:
A new high-tech temple to fundamentalist Christianity is due to open in heart of Middle America next May, aiming to provide the grandest riposte yet to Darwinian evolutionary theory.
Staff and supporters of the Answers in Genesis organisation call it the Creation Museum.
But secular scientists would take issue with the use of either word to describe the almost completed building that stands just a few miles west of Cincinnati, on the borders of Ohio, Kentucky, and Indiana.
Wherever you stand on the debate, it is impossible not to be impressed by the effort that has gone into constructing the $27m (£13.5m) museum, which hopes to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors each year.
Everybody who works at the museum has to sign on to the belief that the living Earth was created in six 24-hour days - rejecting the convention most scientists view as fact, that life evolved slowly over millions of years.The staff writer did a good job in the article, but of course, dismisses AiG's efforts in the last paragraph.

To hammer that point home, two smiling children clad in tasteful animal skins, work and play alongside a pair of baby Tyrannosaurus Rex.
"You go to some of the major museums and dinosaurs are their teaching icon," said Mr Looy.
One of our video conference coordinators has posted a review of the book "The Language of God" over on Amazon.com. Video Conference Coordinators (VCC's) are available around the country to share the message of AiG through video. They can come into a church or school and show any one of AiG's great DVD's and answers questions. John Legate is one of our VCC's and took the time to write on Amazon's website. He says:
[the book] contains verifiable criticisms of evolution and the Big Bang, with references, that could benefit a lot of people if they could just be made aware of it and then chose to explore the topics further.You can read what John wrote here at Amazon. (this is page four of the reviews...you may need to search around a little as this may change). We also posted this book review on our site by Dr. Joseph Kezele of the Arizona Origin Science Foundation.
Thanks for stopping by (as Ken would say), and keep praying!
