Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum Dismantling Science
“I can talk up a very romantic image of God. But to make the Bible the official science textbook of the whole earth? I heard another man who had stopped in off the highway exclaim out loud, ‘What kind of bullshit is this?’ I looked at him and we shook our heads in disbelief.” From final chapter, Badlands.
Unfortunately, we did not have time to stop in and go through the museum. I have before, and it’s a trip, and I wished my family could have gone through it. Next time.
I mean, it is worth the trip to be able see just what kind of disinformation creationists are promoting. While they claim the truth about creation, they seek to discredit science. From their own website, “The Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum presents the Truth of God’s Word using the latest in dinosuar and fossil exhibits, paleontological, geological, archaeological, and scientific discoveries.” They are not short on bombast.
I would recommend visiting the museum for the fun of the experience. I don’t mean to mock the museum. It’s very entertaining and quite dynamically displayed, but I think the main reason to visit the museum would be to pass the word about the disservice creationist “scientists” are offering. To claim the Bible as the only true word of God and thereby the Official Truth of all things, so to speak, is really irresponsible promotion of closed mindedness, self-righteousness, and intolerance for other religions and most notably, for science.
