Among the Creationists

Jason Rosenhouse

Oxford University Press

In this chapter, the author considers the views of creationists about Genesis. He describes his tour of the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. Designed and built by the Answers in Genesis, the Creation Museum presents the young-Earth view of biblical exegesis and science. Its centerpiece is a labyrinth leading guests through Genesis 1–11. The museum is a thought-provoking enterprise that has much to teach us about modern creationism. Many of the exhibits relate to science in general and to evolution in particular, but the museum is primarily devoted to a particular view of the Bible. The author also reflects on the consequences of Adam's sin according to the museum's view of how God intended things to be, along with Noah's flood and the Tower of Babel.
