About 2 weeks ago we decided to take off after the summer NSF program to visit the Creation Museum. Why??? Because it's there. So, I decided to use this for the 'genesis' of a blog.
LIttle did we know the fun to be had. We drove down from South Bend and met up with a friend at Cinncinati's Medical School. Anne G, Jaime U. and Alicia C. are all pictured above standing behind a dinosaur with a saddle (since they lived at the same time as humans, we needed a way to ride 'em. Duh! )
Dinosaurs abound in this $10 million dollar facility, funded in large part by Coca Cola. Above we see two velociraptors scampering near a girl washing food. Below that, an animatronic dinosaur terrorizing innocent attendees.
Noah got some serious air time at the museum, bein' as he saved all the animals for the post-flood Earth. Fortunately he remebered to include...
...the dinosaurs. Young dinosaurs, so they wouldn't take up as much room for the 40 day trip (as they explained in a panel for those who wondered). And as for all those pesky people populating the Earth?? "Let them eat salt water" is apparently the take away message.
If you want to see more pictures from this trip and/or read some of the "documentation" provided throughout the museum on topics ranging from the origin of disease, to the proper role for women, to the genetics behind Cain's wife selection, go to:
