Here’s a brief tour of some of the highlights [or lowlights?] that can be found at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, KY, a mere stone’s throw from Cincinnati.
For a bit of context, these photos are from a year and a half ago but, since people keep asking me about my visit, I figured I should just post them for posterity. I was really unhappy about giving them my $20, although I was filled with a sick and consuming curiosity about the place. Plus, a friend of mine, who was raised a Young Earth Creationist and later went into the sciences, visited from out of town to see this for himself. He was the perfect companion for this field trip.
My photos are horrible, because I felt a bit embarrassed recording all this wackness among people whose wonder and enthusiasm seemed utterly devoid of any ironic detachment. I mostly focused on the didactics to help me remember some of the pivotal moments in this logical house of cards.
