You might have read yesterday about Americans United’s latest victory. It’s one I’m especially pleased to see: Officials at a public school in Glendive, Mont., were going to send third-graders on a field trip to a local spot run by creationists. AU’s attorneys put a stop to that.
The facility in question is called the Glendive Dinosaur and Fossil Museum, but I have too much respect for real museums to use that term for it. In this post, I will refer to it as the “Creationism Indoctrination Center” (CIC).
The CIC is run by an entity called the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth. On its website, one reads the following: “The mission of the Foundation Advancing Creation Truth (FACT) and its related ministries is to glorify God as Creator and Sustainer, emphasize man’s accountability to Him, to affirm God’s revealed and inspired Word as the preeminent source of truth and authority, and to challenge mankind to think through the assumptions and consequences of the humanistic concept of evolution and its underlying premise that the earth is billions of years old.”
Also check out “What We Believe,” which is essentially the CIC’s statement of faith. It’s all here: six-day creation, the Book of Genesis is literally true, there was a worldwide flood, etc. See, that’s how you know you’re not dealing with a real science museum here. Real science museums don’t have statements of faith.
