Did the dinosaur come with it's fossilized saddle and bridle? I hear that these creationist museums also propose that humans actually rode dinosaurs or hitched them to carts. What next, the supposed actual rudder from Noah's Ark? I thought that all that these Fundamentalists needed was "faith," not proof?

Our minister told us that they have proof that this is the very dinosaur that Adam and Eve rode to church every Sunday.

The nice thing about science is that even if you don't believe it, it's still true.

It will be displayed nest to their dragon, which coincidently also drowned in a great flood.

Before anyone gets too giddy, consider that most voices that reject evolution are not young earth creationists. God is not the impetuous type. But evolution vs. creation is a diversion from the real core issue that makes this subject so contentious. The core issue is this: [We will grant you evolution occurred and life developed as a result ---- just please don’t try to tell us it happened by chance and with some nebulous term called “natural selection.” Allegedly, there is no will, no thought, no goal when these inanimate molecules and genes decide to try something new, like grow some feathers, or maybe a liver? If it ever happened this way, only intelligent design (read: God) had to be behind the process.

"Snelling said the fossil's intact skeleton is proof of an extremely rapid burial, "which is a confirmation of the global catastrophe of a flood a few thousand years ago."" So future creationists will find specimens buried in the catastrophic mudslides following the Mt. St. Helen eruption and conclude that a global catastrophe took place?

This story is not worthy of being published. We would all be better off not knowing this museum existed.

Its an abomination this so called museum actually possesses an Allosaurus!! The earth is 4.6 billion years old and there has been a lot of catastrophic geological events that has shaped the earth as we know it. Heck, the Great Lakes were created by a huge ice dam that broke when the glaciers melted and washed megatons of rock, soil and anything else in its way!

Just think, when Rubio or Cruz become president, your kids will be taught this stuff as fact. Only here in America is science rejected by political leaders as "liberal bias".
