14 April - Creation Museum

On 14 April, I had the chance of visiting the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky.

This museum offers a refreshing alternative to most other museums which attempt to make their exhibits fit into the theory of evolution, also known as Darwinism. This approach looks at the wonders and the findings of biology, physics, astronomy and geology and claims that everything, including life, just happened by chance without the involvement of God or a higher power.

However, the very first verse of the Bible state very clearly: "In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth." (Genesis 1:1) The Creation Museum shows the differences of the theory of evolution and the biblical account of creation and demonstrates how creation does not contradict science, but rather how science confirms the truth of God's Word.

Visitors in the Museum are taken through the "Seven C's of history" - creation, corruption, catastrophe, confusion, Christ, cross, consummation.

A more detailed explanation of these points can be found here: http://www.answersingenesis.org/docs2004/0519_7CsBooklet.asp

If you come to visit the Creation Museum, be prepared to have your traditional views challenged and/or get a better understanding of the history of the world we live in from the teaching of the Bible. Prepare to believe.

I also absolutely recommend visiting the planetarium and being amazed at the vastness of the universe and the greatness of God who created it all and is still interested in us humans on our tiny little planet earth.

The Creation Museum is part of Answers in Genesis, a Christian ministry of scientists who believe in the truth of God's Word.
