JUST WAIT'LL THEY OPEN PEPPERED-MOTHWOOD!

Creation Museum surpasses expectations (Chris Kenning, 11/02/07, The (Louisville) Courier-Journal)

Each day near Petersburg, Ky., 1,500 to 4,000 visitors, including busloads from Christian schools and churches, stand in line for as long as an hour to wander 60,000 square feet of animatronic exhibits presenting the Bible's creation story as fact.

It's been six months since the Creation Museum opened to crowds and protests, and the controversial attraction has proven more popular than even organizers had predicted.

Halfway into its first year, it is on the verge of surpassing its projected year-long attendance goal of 250,000. Officials now expect nearly 400,000 people to pass through the doors by year's end.

God loves those with the simple minds of little children.

I once showed one of those children a fine petrified Trilobite I had found at the Red Hill site. Not 300 million years old, the young-earther averred. God, you see, had shaped the rocks that way to test the faith of the weak.

I once somewhat admired the young-earth creationists at least for their cheerful contrarianism. I finally came to see, however, that subjecting the bible--an unchanging thing--to science, which changes every five years--is actually putting the Lord God to the test. Quite a sin, and they don't even seem to realize they do it.
