Random workers who come to work on the museum, which opens at the end of May are finding Christ by looking at Ham’s view of creation and the Great FloodTM.
Ministry staff and volunteers have been working on the Creation Museum for several years, Ham says; however, he notes, “You also hire people from temp agencies and also have outside contractors that come in, and they start asking about the museum.” And for many of these outside workers, he explains, “we find that they have no background understanding of the Bible at all, and they say things like, ‘Oh, I didn’t know the Bible taught about that.'”
At that point, these curious workers “hear about the flood, and then they hear about the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, and the Tower of Babel, and so on,” the AIG spokesman notes. Then, he says, “what really happens is, as they’re asking about the museum, they actually hear what the Bible is teaching, and they hear the gospel — and then they start to ask more questions.”
That is because, for many of these people, “they just have a lack of knowledge. They’ve just never heard,” Ham asserts. That is why the Bible instructs Christians to “go out into all the world and preach the gospel,” he points out. “If they haven’t heard, we need to go out and tell them.”
All this is “exciting too,” the biblical creationist says, “because when they come to the museum here, they recognize [that] we’re not just saying, ‘Here’s what the Bible says.’ We’re also saying, ‘And we have this evidence to back it up.'”
The exhibit will include “evidence” brought to life — 80 animatronic dinosaurs (since they roamed the earth along with man, of course) among other mind-benders.
