A Million Visitors in Just Under Three Years – Amazing!

Posted by jlwile on April 26, 2010

As anyone who reads this blog regularly knows, I have some problems with the Answers in Genesis ministry. At the same time, however, Jesus tells us that we must judge a tree by its fruit (Luke 6:43-45), and the fruits of the Answers in Genesis ministry show that it is a very good tree.

One of those fruits is the wonderful Creation Museum, which just recently welcomed its one millionth guest. This is a remarkable achievement, given the fact that the museum has been around for less than three years.

What makes the museum so popular? Well, unlike many museums, it actually makes its visitors THINK. Rather than just mindlessly repeating the dogma of the day regarding origins, it actually shows how strongly a person’s preconceived notions can affect the conclusions that he or she draws from the scientific data. It also has a lot of world-class displays, including one of the famous fish eating another fish fossils and an amazing discussion of the construction processes that could have been used by Noah to build the ark.

There are some things I don’t like about the museum, but they pale in comparison to the things I like about it. I know most evolutionists are furious about the Creation Museum, and it’s easy to understand why. The more people think, the less they will believe in evolution!

    As for DATA, what is yours that supports: “The more people think, the less they will believe in evolution!”

    “A fool and his money are soon parted” – A great description of how so much money is wasted on nonsensical macroevolutionary research.

    “There’s a sucker born every minute” – One reason macroevolution is still popular despite the fact that it is unscientific.

    Studies show that when creationism is presented to university students, they tend to stray from evolution:

    When presented with a creationist view at the university level, students become more creationist.

    Young-earth creationist university courses make students more likely to be young-earth creationists.

    The more you think, the less likely you are to believe in evolution. This is why most evolutionists don’t want people to think – they just want people to accept their dogma.

    I went to the Creation Museum. It was so realistic and probable. Whenever I hear an evolutionist teacher I feel like I could fall asleep. I never got close to sleep at the Creation Museum!!!

    Matthew, I hear that a lot – evolutionist teaching is uninspiring, while creationist teaching is exciting. I think that’s because REAL science is exciting, and creationism is real science.

  5. Ben Michael Fournier says:

    Evolutionism is tiring for another reason also: the generally hostile demeanor of its vocal proponents. Such people with their barking can be tiresome. And even if they aren’t the barking sort, they still tend to regard criticism of evolutionism as something to be dismissed. It’s sort of like being lectured concerning the proper pronunciation of Klingon, except without any coolness attached other than mere conformity.

  6. Matthew says:

    Exactly right jlwile.

    Ben, I laughed out loud at your comment! As a HUGE Star Trek fan, I love seeing speaking in Klingon equated with being cool!

    Beam me up, Scotty!

    “Beam me up, Scotty!”

    A line Captain Kirk never actually says. (I’m a fan too :)

    On April 26 you referenced your earlier Blog
    “This Explains a Lot,” of May 19, 2009.

    Having read your comments, I think that you may be interested in the booklet “Genesis One and the Age of the Earth.”

    That booklet discusses the Hebrew of Genesis chapter
    one and is available as a FREE Pdf download at

    Thanks very much for the link, Rodney. I have not seen this book before. It looks like a very detailed analysis. I will use the “Send Comments” link on your website to let you know what I think once I have read it.
