A new building dedicated to preaching Creationism will soon open in Nampa, Idaho, though it doesn’t look like they’ve even broken ground yet. They call it the NorthWest Science Museum:
What is the purpose? To lead people to a better understanding of God by viewing His Creation and to show that creation science can explain the evidence we see in the world around us and that it is not just religion.
Our dream for the Treasure Valley of Idaho is to create a science museum where these questions and more could be answered in an accessible and interactive way. We want to present science not only from the evolutionist paradigm shown in state-controlled museums, but also show the compelling censored science that those museums do not show, in order to allow people to draw their own conclusions about the origins of life.
As you may know, our goals are beyond what we, as individuals, can do on our own. This means that we must rely on our mighty God to accomplish the task that he has set before us. This also means that we must ask you for help.
We currently plan to open with a few displays this summer (2011) at Zion Christian School in Nampa, Idaho. To accomplish this opening, we need building supplies, a workspace, volunteers and about $2000 to complete the displays.
Those “state-controlled” museums never censor science, of course. They just show things that can be backed up with evidence, something the Ken Ham clones in Idaho know little about.
If the website is any indication, this place is going to be ripe for mockery. Like the section called “Research Papers.” Currently, there’s only one paper on file (PDF). It has no author, it’s been published nowhere, and it quotemines Francis Crick. (Have fun finding the flaws in it.)
The whole building is misnamed twice over — it’s not science and it’s hardly a museum. It’s looks like it’ll be a series of displays cherry-picked right from the Bible. We might as well call it the NorthWest Outhouse since it’s so full of shit.
