Monuments to Misinformation | The Ark Experience & Creation Museum

June 9, 2020

A short drive south of Cincinnati, OH, lie two well-funded, well-executed museums dedicated to the telling of biblical “history.” The Creation Museum and the Ark Experience came about through Answers in Genesis, a Christian Apologetics organization, and its founder and CEO, Ken Ham.

While the modern science-based community always found fault in these propaganda factories’ notions about the age of the earth (6000 years), and the theory of evolution (it’s wrong) — among myriad other beliefs — the Ark Encounter brought a new layer of controversy to the table when it was granted land, cash, and tax kickbacks by local government and the state of Kentucky at taxpayers expense.

A documentary calledWe Believe in Dinosaurs looks at some of the issues surrounding these facilities through the eyes of both believers and skeptics.

Joining Jim Underdown on this episode of Point of Inquiry are Rob Boston, Communications Director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, Dan Phelps, President of the Kentucky Paleontological Society, and Monica Long Ross, one of the co-directors of We Believe in Dinosaurs.

Below are photos from Underdown’s trips to the “The Creation Museum and the Ark Experience:
