The Big Valley Creation Science Museum has opened its doors this week in Big Valley, Alberta, featuring displays on how men once walked among dinosaurs, a giant model of Noah’s Ark, and a set of English scrolls tracing the family of King Henry VI back to the Garden of Eden.
Like its controversial counterpart in Kentucky, this museum will explain how the world and all its animals, of every epoch, were created at the same time by God. Evidently, a typical day for Adam and Eve involved staying one step ahead of the velociraptors.
That we still have to deal with this bunk in the 21st century is beyond the pale for a society that has gained so much advantage from its science and technology. Christians would be so much better off doing what they do best – helping the poor, doing charity work in their own communities, providing aid and assistance in disaster zones, and helping some people to achieve more spirituality in their life – than trying, and failing (in ways that open themselves up to ridicule), to explain how Genesis could have occurred as written in scripture.
