GOD, Dinosaurs and Adam and EVE all together





PETERSBURG, Kentucky (Reuters) - Ken Ham's sprawling
creation museum isn't even open yet, but an expansion
is already underway in the state-of-the art lobby,
where grunting dinosaurs and animatronic humans
coexist in a Biblical paradise.

A crush of media attention and packed preview sessions
have convinced Ham that nearly half a million people a
year will come to Kentucky to see his Biblically
correct version of history.

"I think we'll be surprised at how many people come,"
Ham said as he dodged dozens of designers working to
finish exhibits in time for the May 28 opening.

The $27 million project, which also includes a
planetarium, a special-effects theater, nature trails
and a small lake, is privately funded by people who
believe the Bible's first book, Genesis, is literally
true.

For them, a museum showing Christian schoolchildren
and skeptics alike how the earth, animals, dinosaurs
and humans were created in a six-day period about
6,000 years ago -- not over millions of years, as
evolutionary science says -- is long overdue.
