During a trip to southern Ohio last summer, Jessie and Casey Clausen found themselves within driving distance of the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. They decided they had to see it for themselves—after all, how could any of us resist those exhibits? Dinosaurs living in harmony with humans! The logistics of Noah's ark explained! Compelling evidence that the universe is 6,000 years old (or less)!
The museum's slogan is "prepare to believe," yet somehow our intrepid travelers came away unconvinced. Fortunately for us, they documented their visit with photos and video, and will be our guides for a virtual tour of the Creation Museum. You'll laugh, you'll cringe, you'll be simultaneously entertained and horrified as you sample the contents of 70,000 square feet of creationism on display.
Jessie and Casey first gave this presentation to the Minneapolis Skeptics Meetup (http://www.meetup.com..., receiving such rave reviews as:
"Great talk. Interesting. Funny. Nice to hear first-hand information."
"Learned more than I wanted to!"
So if you missed out the first time, or if your mind is still reeling and you need to see it again, join us at the Roseville Library on January 15th at 1:30 p.m.
After the presentation, join Jessie, Casey, and assorted audience members at Old Chicago Pasta and Pizza in the Har Mar Mall, 2100 Snelling Ave. For directions and information, visit http://www.oldchicago....
P.S.: No word yet on whether Jessie and Casey are planning to return to Kentucky when the museum's ambitious new project, a "re-creation" of Noah's ark, complete with live animals on board, opens in 2014 (that is, if curator and CEO of Answers in Genesis Ken Ham is able to raise the $24 million necessary to realize his dream).
