5. Prepare to Believe 

Animatronic dinosaur at the Creation Museum

Prepare to Believe” is the theme of AIG’s Creation Museum as it teaches that God’s Word is the key to God’s world.

The museum presents explanations of fossils, dinosaurs, plants, animals, and the universe which differ from explanations given by most scientists.

Signs emphasize that this difference is due to different starting points, not to different evidence. The museum starts from the Bible to interpret evidence, while science generally starts with naturalistic presuppositions to interpret evidence.

The museum’s Walk Through History is organized around Seven C’s: Creation, Corruption (Adam’s Sin), Catastrophe (Noah’s Flood), Confusion (Babel), Christ, Cross, Consummation. It brings the Bible to life with animatronic figures in gripping Bible scenes.

The museum is saturated with Scripture. Relevant Bible verses are narrated over speakers along the Walk. Explanatory signs carry pertinent verses.

The museum depends heavily on reason to build its case. Nuggets of logic pepper the museum. For example, “God made Adam and Eve on the same day as land animals. So dinosaurs and people lived at the same time.”

By the word of the LORD the heavens were made, and by the breath of His mouth all their host.
For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded, and it stood fast.
(Psalm 33:6,9)
