Do Atheists Own the Dinosaurs?

by on

It really has been amazing to see the atheists’ blogs and twitter posts going crazy about AiG’s billboard campaign. Just to refresh your memory, here are a few of the twenty different billboards that have been placed across the country:

I note that the secularists are really upset that the Creation Museum uses dinosaurs. They act as if creationists have no right to use dinosaurs—they only belong to the secularists. Why do they get so upset? Why do they get so emotional about this? Well it’s because they know kids love dinosaurs, and they accuse us of using dinosaurs so kids will want to come to the Creation Museum—well of course we do that! Kids and adults love dinosaurs, and we use them deliberately in our advertising! However, the secularists use dinosaurs to try to convince children there is no God and that evolution and millions of years are fact. We use dinosaurs to tell adults and kids the true history of the world from the Bible.

One secularist website stated the following:

The catch is, as you can see from the ads, there is no information so most people think they will be going to a natural history museum, with standard mainstream scientific information about dinosaurs. What you get, instead, is the young-earth creationist message that dinosaurs and humans coexisted on the landscape which, as Barry Lynn points out, is “only true in the Flintstones.” (

Well let’s analyze this:

“There is no information so most people think they will be to a a natural history museum, with standard mainstream scientific information about dinosaurs.” Interpreted, this statement is saying that people won’t be going to a museum that teaches evolution and millions of years, concepts which are not scientific information in the sense of observational (operational) science—it is the evolutionists belief! And regarding the claim that “there is no information,” actually, I thought the words “Creation Museum” sort of gives it away. The word “Creation” is more than a hint! Not only that but we give the Creation Museum website address—and what is the first thing one reads when they go to

You will read this:

The state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life, casting its characters and animals in dynamic form and placing them in familiar settings. Adam and Eve live in the Garden of Eden. Children play and dinosaurs roam near Eden’s Rivers. The serpent coils cunningly in the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Majestic murals, great masterpieces brimming with pulsating colors and details, provide a backdrop for many of the settings.

The bottom line is these secularists are intolerant of Christians, and they don’t want freedom of religion. They want kids indoctrinated with their religion of atheism, evolution, and millions of years. They want to stop Christians having the freedom to teach God’s Word! They are intolerant!

I like what another Christian leader put on this website:

In a word, evolution is taught everywhere, and yet the evolutionists are still not satisfied with their near monopoly. In addition, evolution is funded by billions of dollars of our tax dollars. What evolutionists are most upset about is that they have not captured the minds of every school child they’ve been indoctrinating for indoctrinating since 1925. Consider this:

On the eve of the 200th anniversary of Charles Darwin’s birth [February 12, 2009], a new Gallup Poll shows that only 39% of Americans say they “believe in the theory of evolution,” while a quarter say they do not believe in the theory, and another 36% don’t have an opinion either way.

These numbers have not changed much over the years. “Today, 46 percent of Americans accept [the creationist] explanation for human existence, a negligible change from the 44 percent who said they agreed with it in 1982, according to Gallup polls.”

These numbers aggravate evolutionists to no end, and I’m glad to see it. Evolutionists hate competition. They are afraid that their tightly controlled theory will be questioned. C. S. Lewis (1898-1963)  captured the spirit of their fear: “A young man who wishes to remain a sound atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere,”[1] including billboards questioning the theory of evolution.

Praise the Lord the billboard campaign has generated so much publicity! The fact that the secularists are so upset tells me this is a very successful campaign.
