Another creationist dinosaur museum!

Brace yourselves–the drool-bib brigade has been hard at work in fossil country. The Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, operated by a group calling itself–with hilarious but typical inappropriateness–FACT (Foundation Advancing Creationist Truth), recently opened in the middle of nowhere in eastern Montana.

Why erect such a monument to the far-flung failure of the human intellect? Simple:

The mission of the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth and its related ministries is to glorify God as Creator and Sustainer, emphasize man’s accountability to Him, and challenge the hearer/visitor to think through the humanistic concept of evolution.

People should know that when they find themselves using “humanistic” as a pejorative, it’s probably time for a reality check. But people who offer a statement of belief like this one (pimped from the Institute for Creation Research, the “brain”child of Henry Morris) aren’t acquainted with reality:

All things were supernaturally created by the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The Bible is the divinely inspired revelation of the Creator, completely free from error in the original manuscripts.

Each type of plant and animal was specifically created “after its kind” by God; none came from chance or natural processes, nor did any develop from some other plant or animal.

The first humans, Adam and Eve, were specially created by God; all others are their descendants. In Adam, mankind was given dominion over all other creatures and the earth itself. “marriage is ordained by God and is only between one man and one woman.”

The creation of all things occurred in six natural days and was originally “very good.”

The entrance of sin into the world, through Adam, brought God’s curse on all creation, culminating in death and separation from God. No suffering or death existed prior to this.

The Biblical record of the beginning of the world is authentic history. This includes the recent creation of all things, the fall, the curse, the global flood, and the dispersion of nations at Babel. Evidences in the earth’s crust and in human legends are to be interpreted in light of this true history.

The separation of man from God can only be remedied by the Creator Himself, who became man in the person of Jesus Christ – virgin-born and sinless. His substitutionary death paid the price of man’s redemption and His bodily resurrection proved His victory over death.

Surf around the site and you’ll find videos, photos, and other niceties that obviate the otherwise compelling need to make a pilgrimage to Montana to check out this wreckage in person. I’m sending them a link to this post so they can appreciate the fact that news of their opening has reached the uberliberals in the Northeast.

    Poe?

    I guess it could be real. It’s not a very big building and there are some damn fool crazy people out there willing to fund such nonsense.

    I guess Hitchens nailed it when he said “Religion poisons everything”.

    Oh, dear. Here we go again. Glorifying dog by telling lies about reality. What, again?

    No, still.

    FACT (Foundation Advancing Creationist Truth)

    There’s that word again, foundation. Wasn’t there something written somewhere about building one’s house on sand, rather than on a well designed and labor intensive foundation?

    Hmm. Looks good. Nice to see Christians holding fast in the face of evolution dogma.
