The Creation Museum

Has everyone heard about the Creation Museum?

It is, as its website says, a "walk through history" that "brings the pages of the Bible to life." In other words, the museum is devoted to explaining how God created the universe, as it is told, literally, in the Bible.

Among the attractions at Creation Museum are "Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden" where dinasours (yes, dinosaurs!) roam near Eden's rivers, the "Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil," and a "Walk through the Cave of Sorrows" where you are invited to experience the "horrific effects of the Fall of man" where the "sounds of a sin-ravaged world echo through the room."

The Museum was designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director and is a fully engaging-sensory experience for guests, which is is all very impressive. But I think that many people who go to visit this museum, children especially, should be cautioned:

Although this state-of-the-art musuem seems real, they shouldn't interpret these exhibits as the real Biblical events. The exhibits are just representations of Bible stories. That is, they are symbols, which means that the Noah's Ark exhibit, for instance, isn't the real Noah's Ark. So, it probably doesn't really float and it probably doesn't really hold two and two of every species.

Just sayin'. Open year-round. Except for Thanksgiving, New Years, and Christmas (of course).
