Strange Universe

Edward Rothstein reports in the Arts section of the New York Times on "Adam and Eve in the Land of the Dinosaurs." Rothstein's story on the new Answers in Genesis Creation Museum opening Monday in Petersburg, Ky.

"Outside the museum scientists may assert that the universe is billions of years old, that fossils are the remains of animals living hundreds of millions of years ago, and that life’s diversity is the result of evolution by natural selection," writes Rothstein. "But inside the museum the Earth is barely 6,000 years old, dinosaurs were created on the sixth day, and Jesus is the savior who will one day repair the trauma of man’s fall... "

"For the skeptic the wonder is at a strange universe shaped by elaborate arguments, strong convictions and intermittent invocations of scientific principle. For the believer, it seems, this museum provides a kind of relief: Finally the world is being shown as it really is, without the distortions of secularism and natural selection."
