Among the Creationists

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author describes what he found during a visit to the Creation Museum, which opened in 2007 in Petersburg, Kentucky. The Creation Museum is a professional, commercially successful venture that presents the young-Earth view of biblical exegesis and science. The centerpiece of the museum is a labyrinth leading guests through Genesis 1–11. Designed and built by the Answers in Genesis, the museum features a “special effects theater,” where the author watched the movie Men in White. The museum is a thought-provoking enterprise that has much to teach us about modern creationism. In Men in White, the yearbook opens to a photograph of a science teacher dressed in a white lab coat who says the most important concept in modern biology is evolution.
