Anti-Evolution Creation Museum Markets to Kids with Cartoon, Billboards (Video)

The Creation Museum in Petersburg, Ky., has often found itself in controversy.

The pro-Christian, anti-evolution attraction recently debuted an exhibit of bones from an Allosaurus, a dinosaur that scientists say lived 150 to 155 million years ago.

According to The Independent, the Creation Museum's researchers said in May that the Allosaurus “met his end during Noah’s Flood about 4,300 years ago."

“Ultimately he and every air-breathing animal not on the Ark with Noah died (Genesis 7:22). Biblical history gives us a context for this dinosaur’s death and preservation in what’s called the ‘Jurassic’ portion of the fossil record,” claimed the Creation Museum.

Ken Ham, the founder of the Creation Museum, recently announced on his website that the attraction was launching a two-month campaign using billboards (pictured above) and TV advertisements (video below) that offer free admission for kids who are with a paying adult.

Ham also claimed there are "secularists" trying to silence his ad campaign:

We find that many secularists just can’t help themselves when we conduct these promotional campaigns—they react in various ways because they don’t want people to know about the Creation Museum. They are so intolerant of Christians getting their message out. Yes, these secularists only want people to hear their message of hopelessness and meaninglessness which comes out of their humanistic worldview.

However, the Friendly Atheist notes, "No atheists are protesting his campaign. No one’s calling for the billboards to be taken down. No one’s trying to vandalize them (and most of us wouldn’t stand for it if anyone did)."
