A Thorough Walkthrough of the Creation Museum

Dan Gilbert recently visited the Creation Museum and documented his trip.

I know, I know. You’ve heard all you ever needed to hear about the museum.

But! This is one of the most thorough walkthroughs you’ll read of the place and Dan has some of the *best* images I’ve seen.

The posts are broken up into six parts:

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5
Part 6

    Wow, it was far worse than I thought it could possibly be.

    I…….can’t do it. I just can’t. Every time I read about that place I get angry. I can’t do it. :(

    Somebody really needs to take a thorough photographic walkthrough like this and heavily annotate it to point out every single lie, with summaries of and links to actual facts on the topic. A real, serious, deep debunking of the place. Post it on the web, and get tons of atheist sites to link to it (which won’t be difficult) so it’ll get a high google page rank, so when someone googles for “creation museum”, they’ll find the debunking near or at the top of the results.

    Thanks, Hemant! I appreciate the compliments and the link. :-)

    I love how they claimed the church has never been defeated by science but what about the flat earthers? Christians used to believe the Earth was flat and that it revolved around the center of the Earth, but now we know the bible was wrong about it and pretty much all Christians accept that science was right about that and religion was wrong.

    Wait, wait, wait.

    One of the photos talks about how the only way we could have such a variety of forms of life from a common ancestor is if they were created by God – that even billions of years wouldn’t be enough time.

    Then they have their post-flood SUPER EVOLUTION poster.

    So slow, gradual change from a common ancestor is impossible, and the only other possible option is ULTRA-FAST change from a bunch of different ancestors?

    How about fast changes over billions of years? Or how about just NOT LYING?

    You can see why Adam did sinful things with Eve. When I saw the photos, I wanted to do sinful things with her too, and she’s only a plastic statue!

    I trudged through parts 1-5. Excellent review, really it is, but I just grew so tired of all the lies (by the museum). Couldn’t bring myself to do more than skim part 6.

    Dan Gilbert must have the patience of Job… ;-)

    Dan, I’m impressed.
    I was exhausted, depressed and raging just reading your description. I could never have held my tongue, I think I would have been escorted out, in a straight jacket.

    Wow… the tiny horse and the “rafting” just made my head explode.

    If reasoning with a creationist (especially those of the museum type) is futile, what can you do?

    The thing I always found interesting, is that it is the military veterans, who infact defend the “Freedom” of the American people. If not for our Forefathers,and military veterans protecting the U.S. Constitution,then what happens to the American peoples “Freedom?” I think people should read the U.S. Constitution, and determine what would happen if you were to
    go against, what the U.S. Constitution says, and what it would mean for the future of children. Many people have taken their “Freedom” for granted, without realizing where it comes from. People should pray for the military veterans that protect out “Freedom” on a daily basis.
