The Creaton Museum

The Creation Museum, opening May 28, 2007, presents a "walk through history." Designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director, this state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life.

A fully engaging, sensory experience for guests. Murals and realistic scenery, computer-generated visual effects, over fifty exotic animals, life-sized people and dinosaur animatronics, and a special-effects theater complete with misty sea breezes and rumbling seats. These are just some of the impressive exhibits that everyone in your family will enjoy.

Charter Memberships will soon be Extinct ...

Stop your education now ... the answer to all questions is "It's God's will."

Statement of Concern about Impact of AIG's Creation 'Museum'

Subject: Statement of concern regarding AiG museum

Dear Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana friends of NCSE,

With the young-earth creation ministry Answers in Genesis scheduled to open its lavish creation museum in northern Kentucky at the end of the month, there is a great deal of concern among the scientific and educational communities in the adjacent states about its impact on the public understanding of evolution.

As part of NCSE's efforts, we are inviting university scientists in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana to sign a statement expressing their concern about the effect that the museum may have on the scientific literacy of the students they will be teaching. The statement reads, in full:

We, the undersigned scientists at universities and colleges in Kentucky, Ohio, and Indiana, are concerned about scientifically inaccurate materials at the Answers in Genesis museum. Students who accept this material as scientifically valid are unlikely to succeed in science courses at the college level. These students will need remedial instruction in the nature of science, as well as in the specific areas of science misrepresented by Answers in Genesis.

If you qualify to sign the statement, we urge you to do so, by visiting:
