A Tale of Two Museums

Sean O’Driscoll of the Associated Press looks at the oh-so-subtle differences between the Hall of Human Origins at the American Museum of Natural History in New York and Ken Ham's Creation Museum near Cincinnati:

Hall of Human Origins: Displays show how genetic variation occurred over billions of years of random mutation, and the emerging traits were naturally selected for the environment in which the animal lived.

Creation Museum: Exhibits present genetic variation as occurring rapidly in the past 6,000 years. Various types of dinosaurs were saved by Noah’s ark and larger ones mutated from those. Dinosaurs died out in the last few thousand years, but some might still be around. Polar bears mutated from bears saved by Noah’s ark.
