Creation Museum! (part 2)

Part 1 can be found here.
One morning before heading to the museum we were ready quite early and decided to surprise the kids with doughnuts.  While there I asked Mr. K where my kisses were?  He likes to pretend he does not know.

Then he gives me big hugs and kisses!

One of the favorite parts of the museum was exploring the gardens outside as well as going to the petting zoo.

Miss E had studied up on what animals we could expect to see there and told us about all of them.  She was especially looking forward to seeing the Zonkey and the Zorse.  (crosses between zebras and donkeys/horses)


I loved seeing Mr. K interact with the animals.  I was impressed by how well he did at feeding the goats.

Miss C loved feeding the animals, but the fish and ducks seemed to be her favorites.  

Camel rides were a big hit.  Miss C and Mr. K skipped them, but everyone else got to go!

Why would we go so far to take our family to the creation museum?  Why would we teach our kids about creation when many think that science proves evolution?  Why is it even important?


We believe the Bible to be the inerrant Word Of God that we can trust from cover to cover.  We see through the consistency of scripture (though written by 40 or so men over the course of 1500 years), the archaeological verification, and the amazing preservation that we can indeed trust His Word.

We believe that it takes more faith to believe in evolution and life happening by chance than to believe that our all powerful God and creator could speak this world we live in into being.  There exists much scientific proof to contradict evolution and much evidence glaringly lacking that might support evolution, but facing that requires admitting that there is indeed a God to whom we owe our very being and are accountable to, so we are not surprised that such considerations are ignored out of hand. 

Romans 1:18-20. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, because that which is known about God is evident within them; for God made it evident to them. For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through what has been made, so that they are without excuse.

It is important to us to teach this to our children because if they cannot believe the first words and chapter of the Bible what other parts will they doubt?  We desire to show them through logical thinking and science that they can indeed trust His Word, live by it, and obey Him.  How can they find salvation in a God they do not trust?  How can they obey His whole word if they doubt it?  The Christian walk is not a life of ease, but it is a blessed one.  We desire to equip our children to walk this walk.

If you have never heard a coherent argument explaining the scientific basis for a rational belief in a Creator, we recommend you visit Answers in Genesis and the Institute for Creation Research. As you study critically, you may see how low some scientific fields have sunk since Darwin. It saddens us to see what constitutes "proof" nowadays; it doesn't bode well for the future of our courtrooms if the standards for evolutionary "proof" find their way into popular thinking!
