The lead article on our website today is my response to Rachel Maddow, who hosts The Rachel Maddow Show on MSNBC. She spent almost 10 minutes making a number of false claims about Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum, and the Ark Encounter.
She didn’t do her research, and I want to set the record straight. It’s not a detailed critique but deals with a few of the issues she brought up. I’ve included the introductory paragraphs of my response article below:
MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow went on a rant last night against the Creation Museum, the Ark Encounter, and creationists in general. So what caused Rachel to spend nearly ten minutes on television scoffing, mocking, and spreading misinformation about Answers in Genesis?I encourage you to read the full article on our website.
When we opened our new, first-class Allosaurus exhibit last weekend at the Creation Museum, I knew Ebenezer (the name given to this world-class fossil valued at $1 million) would catch the media’s attention. But this media member has gone too far in her wild claims and sarcasm about our ministry. On MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show on cable TV last night, the host mocked our Creation Museum and its new allosaur exhibit, and, sadly, repeated a false claim from the secular media about our Ark Encounter that we’ve had to correct over and over again. (You can watch the segment from MSNBC below.)
Since I’m at an all-day retreat today, I only have time to make a few comments here, though there is so much I could write about Maddow’s charges and snide tone when it comes to biblical Christianity. Indeed, this isn’t the first time she has acted so incensed about AiG and the Ark Encounter. She is obviously upset and angry, but, in reality, she is angry at God. I suspect there is much more behind her anti-creationist outburst.
And if you want to know the what’s really happening with the Ark Encounter, visit ArkEncounter.com. If you want to find out what AiG actually teaches about the fossil record or the history of the earth, visit AnswersInGenesis.org/answers.
And to find out more about the Creation Museum, visit CreationMuseum.org.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
