This is a creation science site. If it's not your cup of tea, go elsewhere. If you are open-minded, check out their information. Their science is sound (even if you are unwilling to do the deep digging to find out). Great articles and information for both adults and children. A great place to visit, too.
DUDES! This site is totally safe for people of ALL AGES!
This site is NOT "homophopic."
This site is NOT trying to "brainwash your kids."
This site does NOT just teach "made-up scientific facts."
This site teaches TRUTH! You just have to open your mind and heart.
Please don't fall for this site's yellow WOT rating. Please don't listen to the "I don't trust" reviews. Just read the site's "About" pages, and maybe even consider a visit to the museum itself, and "Prepare to believe!"
There is nothing wrong with this website, it is just like every other attraction site: detailing directions, ticket prices, things to do, where to eat, etc. Those who are bashing this site show they do believe in God, but they just hate Him and His call to repentance and faith in Christ.
If any of the haters could study creation science with a less than closed mind, you'd know that it is real science. Creation science is no less proven than much of secular science. Secular science will take a single skull(at times) and re-create a skeleton(without the other actual bones) and then determine they found a new species. Without any solid evidence, based on dating that cannot be proven beyond a shadow of a doubt. And don't get me started on the flaws in the science of space and the universe.
It takes just as much FAITH to believe traditional science as it does to believe in Creation.
With that said. Why the hate? It is extremely ignorant to believe that, if children believed in creation, it would somehow hurt our economy. Or that children would be less intelligent. Some of the most intelligent people in the world believe in Creation. It doesn't make people stupid and it doesn't hurt their ability to learn, or the future of our country.
Choose to not believe. Choose to oppose the teachings if you want. But, you need to first have studied it and, actually know a thing about it(most haters simply hate without any knowledge outside of blindly trusting the secular scientific world... meaning, YOU have not studied any of that stuff in depth and in person, you just swallow whole everything you're taught in school.)
But, trying to cause panic? Saying we're all doomed if people start to believe it? Give me an example of how that's even possible. I know tons of people that believe in the biblical explanation of creation and, they all have jobs, well rounded children that are quite intelligent... I don't see anyone hurting because of these teachings...
So again, believe what you want, teach what you want, oppose what you want. But leave the propaganda and hatred at home please. It's unfounded.
There are people that believe in creation that are smarter than you and more successful in life than you. So, the argument that it is detrimental to our society is invalid.
This site is exactly what it claims. A Creationist's museum. There are quite a few opinionated ratings that essentially are just *Religious Bashers*. Essentially what they say is that if there is an viewpoint other than evolutionary viewpoint, it is not only wrong, but deserves to be verbally abused in every way.
Looking over all of the ratings on this site, it is easy to see that people don't have a good understanding of science. There is no concrete proof that the big bang happened. We were not there to observe it happen therefore we cannot say it absolutely happened. Until the edge of the universe is found and we can definitively determine the center of the universe and the speed that things are moving outward, all options need to be kept open. People who say that this site is misleading or unethical, are blinded by the brainwashing going on in this day and age, focused on completely throwing out the possibility a God. Until all things are concrete, all possibilities should be kept open.
I have visited this museum and I have read their materials.
The museum is excellent in its design and production quality - comparable to many of the Smithsonian Museums I have visited. Their materials are also well written and beautifully produced. Most are written by award winning Ph.D. level research scientists in their fields.
I may not have a Ph.D. but I have eight years of post secondary education and two degrees. The materials they present may be difficult to accept for the hard core evolutionist but they are scientifically sound.
It is unfortunately that so many of the comments and ratings are simply based on ignorance and emotion rather than careful evaluation of the facts.
There is nothing more dangerous here then an alternative worldview. It's interesting though that other reviewers fear even the slightest consideration of "Intelligent Design". I view anyone who uses the phrase "settled Science" as someone with an agenda trying to silence someone else. Why?
This museum should be labeled for what it is - a theology museum. It's connection to science is tenuous at best. If you believe,. there is much to confirm your belief. .
I support their right to their beliefs, whether I agree or not. Where I differ, is that it's not science. It's not a scam of any sort, but it does try to pass off beliefs as science.
This is a website that espouses that dragons were real, and presents extraordinarily misleading "facts." What's worse is that it's targeted at children, who are too impressionable to see through this travesty. It is a misleading scam that hurts our children and our future.
It is a Christian website that often goes head to head with atheist organizations; hence the mixed reviews and claims of unethical behavior.
If you don't like their view/position then you won't like the site. Plain and simple.
