Salon.com has an article on the new Creation Museum. The museum is an inadvertent exhibition of myriad and uncreative (which is not to say inherently ineffective) ways that Christian fundamentalists perpetuate anti-science mendacities--also known as lies about geology and biology, and the omission of facts revealed to the world through genetics and astronomy.
From the article we learn that for the organization that built the museum, Answers In Genesis,
the conclusions of modern science are not to be trusted, as they are biased by the fickle reasoning of man and a modern antagonism toward faith. On the other hand...the Book of Genesis is true "from the first word to the last."
With a staff of nearly 300 employees, Answers in Genesis [is] a well-oiled money-raising machine and opened the $27 million museum without a penny of debt to banks or lenders.
The museum is situated in Petersburg, Ky., just 20 miles southwest of Cincinnati...within a one-day drive for two-thirds of the country or 200 million Americans....
However, just because the museum is an exhibition of lies, doesn't mean it will financially fail. The article reminds us that "Only 39 percent [of Americans] answer yes to the question, 'Do you believe that human beings as we know them developed from earlier species of animals?'"
