The construction of the Creation Museum in Northern Kentucky, USA, is humming along. AiG has successfully completed all of the preliminary permit requirements, and has the site plan approval in hand.
The amount of construction activity at the site has increased dramatically, and we anticipate a very busy fall and winter. We recently began pouring the foundations, after our Construction Manager, Kevin Markesbery, oversaw the installation of all the underground utilities (electric, water line, storm water drainage systems) on the site. We soon hope to begin laying asphalt for the entrance and parking lots to protect all the grading work from the winter weather. Kevin is working with the steel manufacturing company as they prepare to fabricate the steel beams for the building (to be delivered in November), and is accepting bids for the paving.
Meanwhile, Patrick Marsh, the Museum Design Director, is making significant progress on designing the exhibit layout. The Creation Museum will provide a powerful visual presentation of the 7 C’s of History — Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross and Consummation—beginning with the events of the six literal Days of Creation. Visitors will see God’s eternal plan for the redemption of mankind unfold before their eyes, culminating in the Consummation.
As soon as visitors walk through the front doors of the museum, realistic, life-size scenes providing a snapshot of what the world may have been like before sin and the Curse will challenge evolutionary paradigms. Popular beliefs about the history of the universe (“millions of years”, “age of the dinosaurs”, etc.) will be confronted; and as visitors progress through the museum, a worldview based on Biblical revelation will be presented in a dynamic, interactive fashion.
God’s people are supporting the museum financially and we are thankful for all the funds that have been given so far. We don’t have enough to finish it yet of course, but the Lord continues to provide our daily needs as we move forward. Although we still need literally millions of dollars, we praise Him for His faithfulness and His goodness to us! This facility will only be built as funds come in—our goal is to be debt-free when the doors open—so we appreciate all donations of time, money and/or materials.
The next banquet benefiting the Creation Museum will be in Atlanta (23 November), with several more planned for the spring of 2003. Mark your calendar and plan on attending to hear first-hand from Ken Ham and some of the museum team about the progress that has been made!
