Dinosaurs, the Cross, and the Bible
By Ken Ham

      An aura of mystery surrounds the dinosaurs. Where did they come from? Did they evolve? Did they really live millions of years ago? What happened to them? Are there any living today? Has any human being ever seen a live dinosaur?
    Children and adults alike are absolutely fascinated by these mysterious monsters. Numerous books and movies have been produced to satisfy a seemingly insatiable hunger for information on these puzzling creatures. The truth of the matter, however, is that there are no real mysteries at all, once you have key information that is not generally known and is withheld from the public.
    Let’s take a walk through history and uncover some amazing facts that will answer many of your questions about these “terrible lizards.” 

Did Dinosaurs Really Exist?
    Dinosaurs certainly did roam the Earth in the ancient past! Fossils of dinosaurs have been found all over the world, and their bones are displayed in museums for all to see. Scientists have been able to reconstruct many of their skeletons, so we know much about how they may have looked. 

When Were Dinosaurs Found?
    The story of their discovery began back in the 1820s, when Gideon Mantell, an English doctor, found some unusual teeth and bones in a quarry. Dr. Mantell realized there was something very different about these animal remains, and believed that he had found an entirely new group of reptiles. By 1841, about nine types of these different reptiles had been uncovered, including two called Megalosaurus and Iguanodon.
    At this time, a famous British scientist (and creationist), Dr. Richard Owen, coined the name “Dinosauria,” meaning “terrible lizard,” for this is what the huge bones made him think of.

 What Makes Dinosaurs Different?
    Other than the huge size of some dinosaurs, the major feature that really distinguishes dinosaurs from other reptiles (such as crocodiles) is the position of their limbs. Dinosaurs had posture that was fully erect, similar to that in mammals. Most other reptiles have limbs in a sprawling position. For instance, compare the way a crocodile ‘walks’ with that of, say, a cow. Dinosaurs would have moved like a cow, with the limbs supporting the body from beneath. Crocodiles ‘waddle’, as their limbs project sideways from their body. 

How Big Were Dinosaurs?
    Some were as small as chickens, and others were even smaller. Of course, some dinosaurs were very large, weighing in at an estimated 80 tons and standing 40 feet high! The average size of a dinosaur, however, was probably about that of a small horse.

A Vacation You’ll Never Forget: AIG's Creation Museum

By Jim Day

     With summer time rapidly approaching, and folks looking to stay close to home to save money on vacations, I have a great recommendation!  If you haven’t visited Answers In Genesis’ (AiG) Creation Museum yet, then I highly recommend that you do so.  It will be a fun and educational experience that you and your family will never forget!
    The Creation Museum, located just seven miles west of the Cincinnati Airport, (a short, leisurely and scenic six-hour drive from St. Louis) features some incredible exhibits designed by a former Universal Studios exhibit director. This state-of-the-art 70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life for the entire family.
    A fully engaging sensory experience, the Museum offers beautiful murals, realistic scenery, computer-generated visual effects, over 50 exotic animals, life-sized people and dinosaur animatronics, a state-of-the-art planetarium, and a special-effects theater complete with misty sea breezes and rumbling seats.  And this is just a fraction of the exhibits and things to experience at the Museum.
    You’ll want to plan at least a day’s visit (two would be better) to even begin to take it all in. The museum’s exhibits will captivate you, entertain you and educate you while revealing biblical truths about creation and God’s plan of salvation.
    AiG has designed the Museum in a particular order to emphasize the Bible allowing each guest to explore the Bible and science through what they call “The Seven C’s of Biblical History.” The Seven C’s stand for Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation.
    Your walk is a one-way, self-guided tour that begins at the Canyon Entrance where you’ll first visit a dinosaur excavation.  From there you’ll travel back 6,000 years to the dawn of creation witnessing the true time line of the universe unfold through the Seven C’s.
    The walk through takes an average of 2 to 3 hours.

 Adam Giving Names to God’s creatures
    You’ll not only get to meet Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden but you’ll get to see Adam as  he gives names to the creatures God created.

 The Dinosaur Den
    Biblical history is the key to understanding dinosaurs.  Explore many of these amazing creatures along with fossilized dinosaur eggs, a Triceratops skeleton casting and much more!  Note: the dinosaur den is not handicapped accessible and is located on the Lower Level Palm Plaza.

 The Petting Zoo—New in 2008
    Newly established in 2008, you’ll see a variety of animal kinds as you stroll through the museum’s family friendly petting zoo.  The zoo is designed to give guests a hands-on experience with some of God’s amazing creatures and is located on the museum grounds, across the lake.
